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 third Story Quest of Act 2, Tainted Sun, a quest that will require you to collect one of the Horadric artifacts to put an end to an endless night.
Diablo 2 Resurrected, Act II: Tainted Sun
Quest Name: Tainted Sun
Claw Viper Temple: 13 (Normal), 44 (Nightmare), 75 (Hell)
Unlocked By: Entering the Lost City, quest given by Drognan.
Deckard Cain will ask you to collect various artifacts. You must find a Horadric Cube, the Staff of Kings, and the Amulet of the Viper, and then put the Staff and Amulet inside the Cube, so you can transmute them into the Horadric Staff. When you arrive at the Lost City on your way to the Amulet of the Viper, everything will turn into darkness, and this quest will begin.
First you have to explore the Lost City area, and at some point in it, you will find a pathway to another area called the Valley of Snakes, where the Claw Viper Temple will be located. The temple will have two levels full of monsters, and at the end, you will find the Altar of the Sun with the Viper Amulet in it. When you grab it, the sun will come back.
After you obtain the amulet, return to Drognan and you will have the quest completed, which in turn marks the next step for another quest, The Horadric Staff, which the Viper Amulet is part of.
