“Secret Of The Spring” Side Quest Location

You need to head over to the exact location of the crumpled note. You cannot start the quest without reading it so it is important. To find the note head over just North of the Cathedral of Light. For those uninitiated, it is the main landmark of the Kyovashad. Kyovashad is the capital city of the Fractured Peaks region as well so you can find it easily.

Since this side quest is of beginner level, you can complete this quest early on in the game. Here is a visual mark on the player’s map to help you find the exact location without much hassle:

Now that you have reached the location, you will need to search for the crumpled note on the ground to start the side quest. Once you find the note, interact with it by clicking on it. It will read the following: “Beacon of warmth in winter’s embrace, patience rewarded by nature’s grace.”

This note marks the start of the quest and guides us as to what we need to do to solve it. First, it says to find “Warmth” in the mountains and second, it tells us to show “patience”. These 2 are the key to solving the riddle itself. You will also notice a blue circle on your map, which helps us know our next location.

Now let’s see how to solve the riddle itself. Once you have read the note, a blue circle will appear on your map. You will need to head over to the location but don’t worry as it is not too far off, and you will just have to defeat a few enemies that come your way.

You need to find a Hot Spring in the mountains as foreshadowed by the quest’s name itself  “Secret of the Spring” and the note telling us to find “Warmth” in the mountains. This spring is just a little northeast of the actual note itself.

Now to the second part of the riddle, showing “Patience.” You might be disappointed if you try to show patience by waiting around the spring, as that will not do the trick. Solving the riddle is actually really simple. You must use the “Wait” emote while standing near the spring itself. Be sure to defeat all enemies around you first!

If you don’t have the emote in your wheel, you will need to add it. Once you have your emote wheel open, click on customize. Next, add the “Wait” emote to the wheel and use it. A buried chest will reveal itself from the ground nearby.

You need to open this chest to get your reward and complete the side quest “Secret of the Spring.” The rewards can include some XP, other items, and most importantly Renown for Fractured Peaks

This concludes our guide on how to solve the notes riddle in Diablo 4. The side quest’s actual name is “Secrets of the Spring,” And is not a hard quest, but it is instead a tricky one, from finding a crumpled note to trying to understand the meaning behind its text.
