|1||We should have known. The farmers left over a fortnight ago—and yet we stayed. Last night, we heard the beasts creeping closer. My husband left to investigate and I haven't seen him since... All I have left are the things we made together. Hopefully they are of more use to someone else. -- Rina the Tinker||Any|
Farming for the Wandering Tinker's Diary[edit | edit source]
- From the Quest Selection screen take quest No. 6. The Broken Blade.
- Accept the quest from Leah in Tristram.
- Take the Waypoint from Tristram to the Fields of Misery.
- Whichever waypoint you appear at you need to head north until you hit the north edge of the map.
- Follow the edge along and at some point you will come to some mud steps which will lead up to a Sheltered Cottage.
- 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.
- If the cottage is the Tinker's Hovel, the Wandering Tinker will be inside.
- 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.
- Run along the top of the map again looking for the steps.
