Hey there, fellow gamers! If you’re here, you’re probably as hooked on Diablo 4 as I am. But, like many of us, you might have run into a pesky little bug in the Mithering Descent dungeon that’s been causing quite a bit of frustration. Don’t worry, though, I’ve got your back. Let’s dive into how to fix this bug and get back to slaying demons!
What is Mithering Descent bug in Diablo 4?
First, let’s understand the issue. The Mithering Descent dungeon bug is a glitch that’s been preventing players from completing all the side quests in the Scosglen region. Even after you’ve finished the dungeon, it still appears highlighted in blue, indicating it’s not been completed. And when you head back in, you’re met with a Sodden Effigy that’s seemingly invincible. Talk about a nightmare, right?
I remember the first time I encountered this bug. I was on my 47th attempt to complete the side quests in Scosglen, and I was stuck at 46. I thought I was losing my mind! But then I realized it wasn’t just me. Many players were experiencing the same issue.
How to fix Diablo 4 Mithering Descent bug
So, how do we fix this? Well, one solution that’s been floating around the official Blizzard forums suggests completing the dungeon again and making sure to listen to the full speech of the NPC before attacking any enemies. I tried this myself, and after a few attempts, it worked!
But here’s the kicker: you don’t actually have to complete this dungeon again to reach full completion for Scosglen. If you’re still at 45 or 46 out of 47 side quests, there might be some quests you’re missing because they’re triggered by items.
The Hidden Quests
Several players on the Diablo 4 Reddit reported that they’ve finished all 47 quests despite experiencing the Mithering Descent bug. Some side quests to check include one triggered by finding a bottle along the coastline of Mariner’s Refuge and another that can be found by searching corpses on the Abandoned Coast.
I remember when I found the bottle quest. I was just casually exploring the coastline, admiring the graphics, when I stumbled upon it. It was a pleasant surprise and a reminder that sometimes, the best way to overcome a challenge is to look at it from a different angle.
The Waiting Game
Unfortunately, like many other dungeon-based bugs in the game, this bug is still impacting players despite being reported close to the game’s launch. Blizzard has a lot of glitches to fix at the moment, so it may take a while before they get to this issue with a patch or hotfix. But hey, we’re gamers. We’re used to waiting for patches, right?
In the meantime, I hope this guide helps you navigate around the Mithering Descent bug and complete your quests in Scosglen. Remember, every problem in gaming, just like in life, has a solution. Sometimes, it just takes a little bit of patience, creativity, and a whole lot of gaming hours. Happy gaming, everyone!
