To keep track of your progress, it is always a good choice to use the plethora of tools for d4 tracking.
Waypoints are means of travel in Diablo 4, and Fractured Peaks has a few of them. The first waypoint you will unlock is Kyovashad, and from there you can go ahead and explore the remaining six waypoints that are spread all over the Peaks at your own free will.
Here is a list of waypoints in this zone:
- Bear Tribe Refuge
We go through the waypoints in Fractured Peaks in more detail in our dedicated waypoints guide.
In Diablo 4, Strongholds is a limited activity that you can complete in order to take over enemy-occupied territory. By doing so, you will be earning 100 Renown points, bringing back old inhabitants of this particular zone, and potentially unlocking new waypoints, dungeons, and vendors.
- Nostrava – Located west of Kyovashad above Desolate Highlands
- Kor Drava – Located north of Kyovashad, above Sarkova Pass
- Malnok – Located east of Kyovashad, under the Frigid Expanse
You can read about all the Strongholds in Fractured Peaks in our detailed Strongholds guides.
Fractured Peaks has 23 dungeons, and all of them are unique and provide you with different rewards. Completing them for the first time will reward you with Legendary Aspects, and doing the Nightmare version of each dungeon also allows you to upgrade your glyph slots.
One of the most annoying things to do in Diablo 4 is find all those Side Quests. They are mini-tasks that require you to slay a certain number of demons, collect some orbs, or deliver something to an NPC. I would personally leave them till last as you don’t have to finish all the activities to unlock maximum renown in a zone.
Altars of Lilith
Altars of Lilith provide you with account-wide benefits like any of the four core stats, Murmuring Obols, and Paragon points. Every zone has at least 20 of them, and in Fractured Peaks, you can find 28 Altars of Lilith. Once you have unlocked them all on one of your characters, then all your characters from all realms will also benefit from those juicy stats.
Exploring the snowy hills of this gorgeous region is an experience of its own. Head into the Peaks, fight those demons, and unveil all the fog of war to make it accessible to all your characters.
World Boss in Fractured Peaks
Every zone in Sanctuary has a world boss of its own, and the world boss in Fractured Peaks is Ashava the Pestilent. This is a dragon that can be located in The Crucible, southeast of the region.
Ashava is one of the iconic boss fights in D4, and she utilizes her poisonous attacks to repel her enemies. Both melee and ranged players are equally in danger because this boss moves around a lot and can even deal damage at a distance.
