From simply cheering on soldiers to deep dives into Dungeons, Side Quests in Diablo 4 come in all shapes and forms. They tell small stories of NPC's in Sanctuary and are an integral part of your character power progression due to their rewards: 30 Renown, Experience, Gold and the occasional cache with various contents like crafting materials or Elixirs.

Basic Information on Side Quests

Let's look at some information that we have gathered. Available quests are marked on the map with a big blue exclamation mark " ! "

In addition, after you begin a quest, a secondary objective is marked in various ways, either with a blue circle on the map to indicate the general area you need to go or with blue diamond icons to indicate a specific object, target, or place to track.

By themselves, the time investment for Side Quests ranges from 20 seconds to 10 minutes. Quest chains can take upwards of 15 minutes to fully complete. To top off your Renown in a zone, this is time well spent!


Besides the important 30 Renown points, you receive Gold, Experience, and sometimes a cache of goodies or special item that can range from Plants, to Ores, to Gear Upgrading materials. These rewards can be a quick boost, especially with your first potion upgrades.

Diablo 4 has standalone Side Quests, Quest chains, and Priority Quests which don't count towards your Renown. The achievements reveal Quest chains scattered through the 5 zones of Sanctuary:

Unlocking Side Quest

Some of them can only be seen once a certain condition is met:

  • Some Quests are locked behind your character level. Check your surroundings every 5 levels to find them all!
  • The second Quest in a chain only appears once the first is complete.
