The Sheltered Cottage (Tinker's Hovel) is a structure in The Fields of Misery of Act I. It's in the northern part of the zone, and always in a appears in that location.

When you enter the area in front of it, it will either be the Tinker's Hovel, the Pillaged Home or an inaccessible house. If it's the Tinker's Hovel it will have the Wandering Tinker merchant inside and if it's the Pillaged Home it will be littered with corpses.

  4. Whichever waypoint you appear at you need to head north until you hit the north edge of the map.
  5. Follow the edge along and at some point you will come to some mud steps which will lead up to a Sheltered Cottage.
  6. Outside could be Swickard's Corpse which will loot the Farmer's Journal or a bag (Tinker's Possessions) containing the Wandering Tinker's Diary.

Special Notes:

  1. If what you are looking for is not there carry on along the top of the map until you reach the slope up to The Old Mill where you will get a Checkpoint. Leave the game and Resume Game and take the portal waiting for you in Tristram directly back to the slope.
