Hey there, fellow adventurers! If you’re reading this, you’re probably knee-deep in the world of Diablo 4, and you’ve stumbled upon the Mithering Descent dungeon. Don’t worry, I’ve got your back. Let’s dive into this guide and conquer this dungeon together.
Mithering Descent Location in Diablo 4
First things first, let’s talk about where this dungeon is. Mithering Descent is nestled in the Scosglen region, specifically in the northshore sub-region, just north of the Sunken Ruins dungeon. If you’re familiar with Calibel’s Mine, you’ll find this dungeon to the northeast. The nearest waypoint is the Marowen waypoint, but you’ll likely come across this dungeon while playing through the Threads of Envy side quest.
Remember, this isn’t a class-specific dungeon, so no matter what character you’re playing, you can venture in.
Rewards for Completing Mithering Descent
Now, you might be wondering, “What’s the loot?” Well, upon completion, you’ll be rewarded with 20 Renowns. However, don’t expect a specific Legendary Aspect from this dungeon as it’s a story dungeon. But hey, you’ll also score a Rare Amulet when you complete the Threads of Envy side quest, which requires you to finish this dungeon.
Mithering Descent Dungeon Walkthrough
Alright, let’s get to the meat of it. Your first objective in the Mithering Descent dungeon is to find the Water Wight, located at the end of the dungeon. As you make your way through, keep an eye out for Shambling Corpses and Drowned enemies.
Once you’ve reached the Water Wight, you’ll encounter the Sodden Effigy, who is, surprise surprise, Roina’s mother. Now, you need to have a chat with Roina.
Defeat the Sodden Effigy and talk to Roina again
Here’s where things get interesting. Roina and the Sodden Effigy get into a heated argument, and guess what? You’re stuck in the middle and have to defeat the Sodden Effigy.
Now, I know what you’re thinking, “Just hit the Sodden Effigy directly, right?” Nope. She’s invulnerable. This elite enemy can summon Sodden Growth around her, one at a time, which protects her by taking away her vulnerability.
So, here’s the strategy: take down the growth first, then deliver your blows on her before she has summoned another growth. It’s a bit of a dance, but with some patience and timing, you’ll get the rhythm down.
Eventually, she’ll weaken, and you can destroy her. After that, talk to Roina again, and voila, you’ve completed the dungeon.
My Personal Experience
I remember the first time I faced the Sodden Effigy. I was so focused on hitting her directly that I didn’t notice the Sodden Growth protecting her. After a few futile attempts, I finally realized my mistake and changed my strategy. It was a tough fight, but the satisfaction of finally defeating her was worth it.
So, there you have it, a complete guide to the Mithering Descent dungeon in Diablo 4. Remember, this isn’t a farming dungeon, and there’s no final boss, but it’s a crucial part of the Threads of Envy side quest. So, gear up, stay vigilant, and happy gaming!
Remember, in the world of Diablo 4, knowledge is as valuable as the best loot. So, keep this guide handy and share it with your fellow adventurers. Until next time, happy hunting!
Note: This guide is based on my personal experience and the information available at the time of writing. Diablo 4 is a dynamic game, and strategies may need to be adjusted as the game evolves.
