Season 4 - Loot
The harsh, cold environment of the Fractured Peaks makes life a struggle.

The Fractured Peaks is a cold, desolate place. Its monsters are fierce with Werewolves, Cannibals, Demons and sometimes the scattered inhabitants alike. Biteberry is this region's herb node to look out for Bundled Herbs. Traveling around the region can be treacherous, so be on high alert.

Fractured Peaks Renown

Renown is one of the best ways to boost your character's power! This is done by collecting Altars of Lilith, doing Side Dungeons, Strongholds, and more. See information below for all Renown categories for the region.

Waypoints allow you to travel through a region much quicker than walking or using a mount. Knowing key waypoints can also help shorten travel distances, such as getting to World Boss Events. The Fractured Peaks have 7 Waypoints located throughout the region.

Kyovashad (capital) - Located in town, northeastern part of Desolate Highlands.

Strongholds provide unique encounters that challenge you in different ways. These defiled grounds must be cleansed before any possible benefit can be taken advantage of. Once reclaimed, you potentially gain access to vendors, Dungeons, and Waypoints. The Fractured Peaks have 3 Strongholds highlighted below:

Side Quests

Side Quests are optional quests that can be done during or after finishing the Campaign. Most can be completed quickly to advance your Renown standing, netting you Skill Points, Potion Charges, Obol Capacity, or even Paragon points.

Areas Discovered

Each region has numerous zones for you to explore. While adventuring, an entire area is uncovered at once, rather than the traditional fog-of-war in past Diablo games. Seek out blurred patches on the map by walking there.


Dungeons are great practice for their bigger brother - Nightmare Dungeons. They award a decent amount of Renown (per first time completion) and unlock Imprints for your Rare & Legendary items.

Altars of Lilith are hidden altars spread throughout the world of Sanctuary. They can give bonuses to your Life, Attributes, Increased Obol capacity, additional Skill and Paragon points! These help reinforce your build and power up your character.
