The Fallen Star

  1. Your journey starts on Overlook Road on the way to New Tristram. The first enemy encountered are the Risen. They are slow movers with a basic bash attack, so depending on your chosen Hero, keep your distance or get up close and personal with them as you return them to the grave.
  2. Once you arrive at the gates of New Tristram, speak to Captain Rumford. He’ll say he won’t open the gates until all the Risen are dead. Help the militia defend the gates against the attacking Risen.
  3. Speak to Captain Rumford again, and he’ll tell you to speak to Leah, at the Slaughtered Calf Inn.
    • It’s a very good idea to speak to everyone with a speech bubble icon when you hover the mouse pointer over them. They will often have multiple topics to cover that tell the overall story of Diablo III, some history about the previous Diablo games, and will sometimes even talk about themselves.
  4. Enter the Slaughtered Calf Inn and speak to Leah. She will talk about her uncle, the infamous Deckard Cain, and what has happened to him.
  5. The wounded villagers taking refuge in the Inn suddenly turn into Risen; dispatch them quickly.
  6. Speak to Leah again, and she will direct you to Captain Rumford for more instructions.
    • Go into Leah’s Room in the Inn, and read her journal.
    • Go into Deckard Cain’s house, next door to the Inn, and read his journal.
    • Locate the wooden chest in front of the Slaughtered Calf Inn. This is your Stash.
    • Take the Minor Health Potions in it to add to your carried supply.
  7. Find Captain Rumford, and help him take out another wave of attacking Risen. He will mention the Wretched Mother and her ability to keep vomiting up new Risen. Dodge her spit attacks and focus on killing her before killing the other Risen.
    • Wretched Mothers stop moving and turning when they vomit, so take advantage of this time to attack in force.
  8. Leave New Tristram behind for now and venture out along Old Tristram Road on the way to the Old Ruins to seek out and slay the Wretched Queen.
    • Walking Corpses are slow, bloated Risen with two attacks: a quick one-hand strike, and a stronger two-hand bash. When slain, their upper half becomes a Crawling Torso that moves much faster.
    • Quill Fiends scurry about in small packs, attacking from a distance by shooting quills, and up close by slashing with their claws.
    • Keep your eyes open for items that may contain loot: barrels, corpses, logs, rock piles, tree stumps, and especially Old Keepsake Boxes.
    • If encountered, investigate additional locations that may spawn, such as Cellars and Wishing Wells, as they are good for more monster XP and loot.
    • Bonus Quest: Kill 3 Wretched Mothers.
  9. Enter the Old Ruins and kill the Walking Corpses and Wretched Mothers in the area before taking on the Wretched Queen.
  10. Locate the ruins of the old Armory, and see if the weapon rack there has a suitable weapon for your hero.
  11. The Wretched Queen attacks the same as the Wretched Mothers, just a bit stronger. Again, take advantage of her standing still to lay the smack down on her first, then do the same for her minions.
  12. Use the waypoint here to return to Captain Rumford at the Slaughtered Calf Inn, and tell him of your success. The Fallen Star quest is complete!
