Diablo 4 is full of side quests, and while many of them simply ask you to mow down the forces of Hell, some of them require a bit more thought. One of those is a side quest called “Secret of the Spring” which can be found just north of the first major hub city Kyovashad. This quest is started when you find a small note with a riddle on it. Here’s how to complete it.
How to complete the Secret of the Spring in Diablo 4The note can be found near the entrance to the Forsaken Quarry Dungeon.
First, you will need to collect the riddle note that starts the quest off. This note can be found north of Kyovashad near the entrance to the Forsaken Quarry dungeon, marked on the map above by the red circle. The quickest path here is to leave the city via the east exit and stick to the end of the map heading north. Once you find the note, the quest will start marking a small area on the map further north from where the note was found.
The spring itself can be found just a bit north of where the note is picked up.
The note itself reads “Beacon of warmth in winter’s embrace, patience rewarded by nature’s own grace.” Once you reach the location indicated on the map, you will find a small pool of water, which is the spring in the name of the quest. Like some other side quests in Diablo 4, you need to use a specific emote here. What might be confusing to some is that the “patience” noted in the riddle doesn’t match anything in the default emote wheel.
You need to use the Wait Emote next to the small spring to get the chest to spawn.
Instead, open the emote wheel and press the button for Customize and go down the list of unassigned emotes until you find the one labeled Wait. Add the Wait emote to your wheel and then use it next to the spring to spawn a chest. The chest only contained gold and resources for me, but that could vary person to person. The quest completes once you open up the chest.
