Fractured Peaks Region Guide

The harsh, cold environment of the Fractured Peaks makes life a struggle.

The Fractured Peaks are cold and daunting. The overwhelming silence is only matched by the terrible feeling of dread and the stench of death that lingers everywhere you go.

The Fractured Peaks is a cold, desolate place. Its monsters are fierce with Werewolves, Cannibals, Demons and sometimes the scattered inhabits alike. Biteberry is a unique herb that is found exclusively in the region. Traveling around the region can be treacherous, so be on high alert.

Fractured Peaks Renown

Renown is one of the best ways to boosts to 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 purely 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.

  • Margrave - Located in the town, Southwestern part of Dobrev Taiga.
  • Yelesna - Located in the town, Southwestern part of Galle Valley.
  • Nevesk - Located in the town, Southwestern part of Desolate Highlands.
  • Kyovashad - Located in the town, Northeastern part of Desolate Highlands.
  • Menestad - Located in the town, Western part of Sarkova Pass.
  • Bear Tribe Refuge - Located in the town, Northwestern part of Seat of the Heavens.
  • Nostrava - Located in the Stronghold once cleansed of evil.


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:

  • Malnok - Located in Eastern part of the Region.
  • Kor Dragan - Located in Northwestern part of the Region.
  • Nevesk - Located in Western part of the Region.

For further information, see our Stronghold Guide.

Side Quests

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

For further information, read our Side Quest Guide to tips and tricks.

Areas Discovered

Each region has numerous zones for you to explore. When done, 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.

Side Dungeons

Side 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.

For further information, see our Side Dungeon Guide.

Altars of Lilith

Altars of Lilith are hidden altars spread throughout the world of Sanctuary. They can give bonus to your main stat as well as Life.

For further information, see our Altars of Lilith Guide.
