The Fetid Pool is an optional area in Act 1. This area does not have a waypoint and is connected to The Mud Flats.

The area is roughly circular with a large muddy pool in the center. The exit to The Mud Flats is at the bottom of the area and Kadavrus is near the top.

The Fetid Pool may be a reference to the Den of Evil in Diablo 2. Both areas are near the start of the game, contain necromancers, and have an optional quest to fully clear the area.



Native Monsters in this area can resist cold and lightning and use physical attacks.


Corrupted areas

Strange Sinkhole has a chance to spawn.
