Do you have to complete darkening of tristram in one go? Seems like the kinda thing you should have told us I completed several lvls but I’m back in tristram for some reason.
Check this out: [SPOILER] The Darkening of Tristram Guide
You have until Sunday, January 31, 2021 4:00 PM PST.
You don’t have to if you just want to finish it.
You do if you want the achievement…
An Eerie Red Glow Blurs Your Vision
…which grants the Butcher pet. For this one, you have to start the dungeon at level 1 and complete it in one game session.
The thing is I exited the game on lvl 6 of the dungeon and now I am back in tristram???
Yes, that’s why I said you had to complete it in one session, i.e. you start with a level 1 hero, go into the event dungeon, and make it all the way down to the final boss without leaving the game.
I’m pretty sure this is covered in all the guides.
Just go back to the portal. You can see the icon on the map.
the guide just says for the ____ achievements you need to do it in one session nothing about the event in general
And where else would you expect to be? You exited the game and started a new one - of course you’re going to be back in Tristam (or any of the other starting areas). It doesn’t save where you were in the event. Just go back to the Old Ruins and re-enter the portal to get back to it. You’re overthinking it.
Just to be clear: Tristram is the Event. New Tristram is the D3, Act 1 starting town. (I assume @trickyness and you mean [New] Tristram).
If your “original” Character entered the Portal to Tristram at Level 1 with 0 XP you’re good-to-go. Use the same Character to return to the Labyrinth and complete all 16 Levels in one game session. And don’t die. (In your case, you may have to create a new Character). This only completes ONE of the Achievements. (I believe the reward is the Butcher’s Pet).
ALL other Achievements can be earned AT ANY TIME and in MULTIPLE game sessions.
There are many good guides, including videos, out there. I tried to provide step-by-step instructions in the [SPOILER] The Darkening of Tristram Guide, which I linked above.
Good luck and good hunting!
OP is somewhat vague, but I think he’s wondering why he doesn’t restart at lvl 6 of the Cathedral. That’s how I read it, anyways.
Yeah thats exactly what I was asking that is if you quit do you go back to lvl 1 imo that really should be clarified at the top of the guide. I don’t know what everyone else is interpreting this as
If I’m understanding you correctly:
- There are no Waypoints to the different Labyrinth Levels, so you would enter Level 1 again.
- Anything you completed on any of the Levels, including side Dungeons, you can skip.
- You need to work your way through all 16 Levels of the Labyrinth and kill The Dark Lord (Diablo), without quitting the game, to get the Achievement and reward for An Eerie Red Glow Blurs Your Vision.
I guess for the sake of brevity they didn’t give exact, specific, step-by-step instructions. However the achievement does say ‘Kill the Dark Lord in a solo game beginning with a level 1 hero…’ Most people reading that are going to get the impression it needs to be done in one single game, without stopping.
Had your opening post been clearer so would the responses.
Yeah but they prefaced it by saying only if you want ____ achievement and I’m more of an I just wanna finish the game kinda guy.
It takes, max, 30 minutes. Just create a new lvl 1 and run through it. It’s not hard to do at all.
No need to create a level 1 character. Just pick your fastest character and blow through the levels.
True, however I’m still not sure if the OP is after the achievement or not. If not, why bother?
I believe you only need to start with a Level 1 Character to get the Achievement An Eerie Red Glow Blurs Your Vision and The Butcher Pet. And once you get that, your done. (It’s a global Achievement and Cosmetic Pet).
The Dark Lord (Diablo) is just like a Greater Rift Guardian. He always drops the Red Soul Shard when you kill him. But, only if your current Character doesn’t already have one in their possession.
So, if you want multiple Red Soul Shards you’ll need to put any you have in an alternate Character’s Inventory and then kill The Dark Lord with your main Character.
