Diablo 2 Resurrected is finally here, and with it, a myriad of quests, enemies, and challenges for you to discover (or re-discover!). Today we will take you through the first Story Quest of Act 3, Blade of the Old Religion, which will see you traveling into the depths of the Flayer Jungle, to obtain an ancient artifact that will protect Karyst.


Diablo 2 Resurrected, Act III: Blade of the Old Religion

Quest Name: Blade of the Old Religion

Area Level

Flayer Jungle: 22 (Normal), 50 (Nightmare), 80 (Hell)

Unlocked By: Completing the first Quest or entering the Flayer Jungle, given by Ormus.

Ormus tasks you with protecting the town, by getting an ancient blade called The Gidbinn, which waits deep into the Flayer Jungle, in a Flayer Village.

Exploring the Flayer Jungle will show you several side pathways marked by two stone pillars, where you'll find the entrance to many other places like Dungeons, Waypoints, or villages. You will eventually reach the one that leads to the Flayer Village, a place where you can find both the Gidbinn and the Flayer Dungeon, a place you want to visit in later quests.


The Gidbinn shows as a small statue with skulls and branches that appears highlighted on the map. When you reach it, click on it so it bursts into flames and triggers a boss Fetish, which you need to kill to get the Gidbinn dropped. The fight shouldn't be hard but be prepared just in case.

After you obtain the dagger, go back to Ormus and show it to him, he will thank you and reward you with a magical Ring, with its level depending on the difficulty you're playing.
