In Diablo 4, Secret of the Spring is a side quest in which you have to solve a text riddle to get a secret chest. To do this, you will need to visit a certain place and wait. If you're having trouble starting or completing the quest, please read our guide.
The Secrets of the Spring quest
How to start the quest
You can take on this quest immediately after the start of the game, but it's best to do it after reaching level 15-17, otherwise you will have to go around all the enemies in your path. So, head to the location of the Kilsik Plateau (Shattered Heights), located north of Kiowashad.
Here you will find a quarry. Head to the location marked on the map above and climb up to the ledge using the wooden ladder, or head here from the west side. Then look for the Discarded Note on the ground and interact with it. You will see the following text: “Like the fire of a hearth in a cold winter, the reward of patience is the grace of nature.”
Immediately after that, the corresponding mission will appear in your journal. It will contain a hint for its passage: “A beacon of warmth in the middle of winter – nature itself will reward you for your patience.”
Solve the riddle in the note
First of all, go to the area, which will be marked on the map with a blue circle. Luckily, you won't have to go far – just go a little north until you reach a hot spring located in the Orobas Channel. Be careful as there may be Frost Maulers nearby.
After dealing with the enemies, stand near the pool and press the “E” key (PC) or the up arrow (on consoles) to open the reaction ring. Next, click on the “Wait” emotion. If it is missing, then click on the “Edit” button, select the desired reaction and transfer it to the quick access panel.
Save your changes, open the reaction ring again and press Wait. Immediately after that, a buried chest will appear next to you. Approach it and open it for a reward: 1840 gold coins, 20 renown (Shattered Peaks), 3 pieces of iron, 3 gallows vines and 8799 experience points. The mission will be completed.
