Diablo 4 Season 2 Guide: How to Complete the A Serpent Cornered Quest

A Serpent Cornered is the fourth quest in the seasonal quest chain of Diablo 4 Season 2. It’s renowned for its difficulty and requires you to have previously attempted the Blood Harvest quest and returned to Ked Bardu. Here’s a step-by-step guide to completing the A Serpent Cornered quest:

Meet Erys

Once you’ve returned to Ked Bardu, you’ll encounter Erys, who will instruct you to meet her in the City of the Ancients. However, note that some players have reported that the quest marker for the City of Ancients does not appear for everyone. In reality, the City of Ancients is The Darkened Way dungeon, located northeast of the Yelesna region in Fractured Peaks. Make your way there to meet Erys.

Enter the Dungeon

After speaking to Erys, enter The Darkened Way dungeon. Your objective is to slay all the enemies within the dungeon. Make your way through the dungeon, defeating any foes that stand in your path.

Confront Lord Zir

The final challenge of this quest is to confront and defeat Lord Zir, the boss of The Darkened Way dungeon. Lord Zir possesses several abilities, including a swipe attack, wind attack, blood dripping from the ceiling (which inflicts damage), and pools of blood that slow your movement.

Additionally, he will summon Blood Seekers throughout the fight. Prioritize taking down the Blood Seekers when they appear. Dodge or sidestep Lord Zir’s attacks to avoid taking unnecessary damage.

After defeating Lord Zir, you will complete the A Serpent Cornered quest and earn your rewards, including the coveted Metamorphosis Vampiric Power. Don’t forget to loot Lord Zir’s corpse for any additional treasures.

Congratulations! You’ve now conquered the formidable A Serpent Cornered quest in Diablo 4 Season 2. Make sure to loot Lord Zir’s remains and bask in the glory of your triumph. Enjoy your newfound Vampiric Power and continue your adventure in this dark and thrilling world. Good luck, Nephalem!
