The first zone you’ll enter in Diablo 4 is called the Fractured Peaks, and we’ll tell you what to expect here in our Area guide.
These are the areas in Diablo 4: The ARPG Diablo 4 will feature five unique areas. In each area, you’ll progress through your main story, find a few villages and towns, tackle dungeons, complete side quests, and visit some points of interest to improve your Renown. These are the areas:
- Fractured Peaks
- Dry Steppes
- Hawezar Wet Marsh
This is the Fractured Peaks in Diablo 4
The Fractured Peaks: The Fractured Peaks is the first area of Diablo 4. It is a cold and lonely area with rugged steppe landscapes and snow-covered paths.
Fractured Peaks – How to get Renown
What is Renown? Renown is a power that you use to improve the stats of all your characters. You get it throughout the game by doing many small tasks, such as activating waypoints, completing dungeons and side quests, or finding altars.
|Altars of Lilith||28|
Waypoints are well-known mechanics among Diablo fans. They are points where you can quickly travel back and forth. In order to do this, however, you first have to find them. There are 7 of them in Fractured Peaks:
- Margrave: Located in the city, in the south-western part of the Dobrev Taiga.
- Yelesna: Located in the city, in the southwestern part of the Galle Valley.
- Nevesk: Located in the city, in the southwestern part of the Desolate Highlands.

- Menestad: Located in the city, in the western part of the Sarkova Pass.
- Bear Tribe Refuge: Located in the city, in the northwestern part of the Seat of Heaven.
- Nostrava: Located in the STronghold.
These are bases: Bases in Diablo 4 are special challenges that you master in different ways. But once you’ve cleared a base of evil, you may unlock merchants, dungeons, and waypoints. There are 3 of these in Fractured Peaks:
- Malnok: In the eastern part of the region.
- Kor Dragan: In the north-western part of the region.
- Nostrava: In the western part of the region.

In Diablo 4, you can discover an entire zone and receive Renown in the process. Each zone is divided into many locations that you want to uncover. You can simply search for the places on the map that are blurred. Once you have reached an undiscovered location, it will be completely uncovered immediately. In Fractured Peaks you can discover 77 locations:
These are dungeons: Dungeons in Diablo 4 are divided into normal and nightmare dungeons. During the leveling phase you will do the normal dungeons, which not only give you 20 Renown, but also equipment and Imprints (enchantments for your equipment, similar to the Kanai’s Cube in D3).
In each dungeon, only 1 to 2 monster types appear, and you have to complete 2 to 3 main tasks to complete a dungeon. Some dungeons can only be opened during the main quest or after you have conquered a base.
Altars of Lilith
These are the Altars of Lilith: The Altars of Lilith are spread all over the world of Diablo 4. If you reach them, you will receive 5 Renown and experience points. You also unlock bonuses for your account that are applied to all characters. These can be:
- +2 Dexterity.
- +2 Strength.
- +2 Intelligence.
- +2 Willpower.
- +8 Life points.
In Shattered Peaks, you can find 28 Altars of Lilith.
