All Stronghold Locations In Hawezar



Quick Links Discovering Additional Strongholds
Strongholds play a vital role in the expansive world of Diablo 4. Whether you’re aiming to maximize your renown in a particular region or simply seeking to unlock new dungeons, it’s essential to clear out as many strongholds as possible. RELATED: Diablo 4: Obtaining Mounts
Hawezar, like the other four regions in the game, has its fair share of hidden strongholds that can prove challenging to locate amidst the intricate maze of the swamp. Furthermore, the rewards for completing a stronghold in this region may not be as consistent as those in earlier regions. Here, we provide you with the details of each stronghold’s location, a brief guide on how to conquer them, and the rewards you can expect to receive.
Updated by Chad Thesen on July 3, 2023: Initially, this guide did not include any links to the stronghold locations in other regions of the game. This update incorporates embedded links to all available guides that feature the locations of other strongholds in the remaining regions of the game.
Crusaders’ Monument
Situated in the upper left section of the Hawezar region, the abandoned Crusaders’ Monument is teeming with skeletons and other restless undead. To lift the curse that has plagued this monument for ages, you must locate the bodies of four grave robbers and burn their skulls in a ritual pyre at the center of the structure. Keep in mind that only the bodies found in the outer ring of the monument will yield skulls when looted. Once you have burned all the bones, you will face off against three ancient heroes fighting together. Unfortunately, defeating this stronghold does not provide any additional bonuses, apart from the 100 renown points awarded for completing any stronghold in the region.
Eirman’s Pyre
Deep within the Cinder Wastes, in the upper portion of Hawezar, lies Eirman’s Pyre. This perpetually burning town is guarded by Eirman, a possessed entity atop a towering pyre. To free the trapped spirits of the villagers, you must extinguish the focal points that fuel the flames of the pyre. Explore the area to find the remains of the villagers, which can be used to douse the flames. Each focal point extinguished will reveal another set of remains hidden within a new area. After extinguishing all the focals, you will confront the spirit inhabiting Eirman’s body, vanquishing it once and for all. Completing this stronghold will grant you access to the Oblivion dungeon. Running through this dungeon at least once will reward you with the Aspect of Shared Misery, a powerful crowd control-based effect that can be utilized by any class.

Victory Awaits
The third and final stronghold in Hawezar is the swamp town of Vyeresz, located in the center bottom of the region. This once peaceful village has fallen under the control of serpent cultists and their reptilian allies. Scattered throughout this snake-infested town, you will discover Serpent’s Eyes—gems adorning small snake-themed altars. Defeat the cultists guarding these altars to collect all three eyes, which will unlock the door at the center of the village. Behind that door awaits an enormous naga. The challenges you face will be rewarded, as clearing this stronghold will grant you access to the Vyeresz Waypoint and the Shadowed Plunge dungeon. The dungeon offers a valuable aspect for rogues. Although the newly revitalized town may not offer extraordinary services, Vyeresz is strategically positioned on the map, allowing for easy travel to any location in the lower portion of Hawezar.

Strongholds are a staple of Diablo 4’s open world, and whether you’re trying to max out your renown in a region or just looking to unlock some new dungeons to play through, you’ll likely want to clear out all the strongholds you can.

Hawezar, like the other four regions in the game, has its share of strongholds that can be a bit tricky to find in the twisting maze of the swamp. On top of that, the rewards you get for finishing a stronghold aren’t as consistent as they were in earlier regions. Here’s where you can find each stronghold, a brief description of how to complete them, and the rewards you’ll get for doing so.


Updated by Chad Thesen on July 3, 2023: This guide originally did not contain any links to the stronghold locations of the other regions in the game. This update has been made to include embedded links to all the available guides that feature the locations of other strongholds for the remaining regions of the game.

Located in the top left of the Hawezar region, this abandoned monument is home to all sorts of skeletons and other restless dead that you’ll have to deal with in order to lift the curse laid by mistakes made long in the past.

To put the dead to rest in the Crusaders’ Monument, you’ll have to find the bodies of four grave robbers and burn their skulls in a ritual pyre at the center of the monument. While there are plenty of these corpses lying around, look towards the outer ring of the structure as those are the only bodies that will drop skulls when looted. After you burn all these bones, you’ll have to face three heroes of old fighting in tandem.

Unfortunately, the stronghold won’t give you any additional bonuses when defeated except for the 100 renown points you get for completing any stronghold in the region.

Eirman’s Pyre

Deep in the Cinder Wastes in the top portion of Hawezar stands the stronghold of Eirman’s Pyre. This ever-burning town is home to Eirman, a possessed body atop a large pyre that you’ll have to put out in order to free the trapped spirits of the villagers.

To do this, you’ll have to run around the area, looking for the remains of the villagers which you can use to put out the focal points feeding the flames of the pyre. Doing so will unlock a new area that will have another set of remains hidden within it. Extinguish all the focals, and you’ll have to fight the spirit inhabiting Eirman’s body to vanquish it once and for all.

Once you complete this stronghold, you’ll gain access to the Oblivion dungeon. Running through this dungeon at least once will reward you with the Aspect of Shared Misery, which has a neat crowd control-based effect that any class can use.

The player looks at the Vyeresz Stronghold Location

The third and final stronghold in Hawezar is the swamp town of Vyeresz in the bottom middle of the region. You’ll quickly find that this town has been taken over by serpent cultists and their reptilian friends.

Around this snake-infested village, you’ll find Serpent’s Eyes, gems that dot the town in small snake-themed altars. You’ll have to collect all three of these eyes, defeating the cultists that guard them, to open the door in the center of the village. Behind that door, you’ll face an oversized naga.

The trouble is worth it, however, as clearing out this stronghold will unlock the Vyeresz Waypoint and the Shadowed plunge dungeon. The dungeon offers a decent aspect for rogues. While the services in the newly revitalized town aren’t anything to write home about, Vyeresz sits in a great place on the map, letting you travel easily to anywhere in the bottom portion of Hawezar.

Where Can You Find Other Strongholds?
