Walkthrough

Tarkleigh has asked you to defeat the Puppet Mistress.


Tarkleigh: With the road to the Phrecian Forest clear again, I trekked through to the forests beyond, to see if the strangeness we’re seeing on the coast is also happening inland. What I saw nearly froze my heart solid.

The animals there, poor wretches… overtaken by some sort of parasite. As close as I can reckon they’re like termites, burrowing into flesh and mind instead of wood. If I’m right, there’ll be a nest somewhere, and a queen. If you can find it, destroy it. Those parasites aren’t something we want to see around here any time soon.


You will find the Puppet Mistress in The Spawning Grounds which is a side area in The Wetlands zone of Act 6. There is no waypoint in The Wetlands so you will need to go from the Riverways waypoint to the Wetlands entrance. Upon entering the grounds you will need to go down the steps and kill everything there and then come back up where she will be waiting and kill her.


You have defeated the Puppet Mistress. Talk to Tarkleigh for a reward.


Sin: The Azmeri believed that, one day, this world of ours would collapse under the weight of Ryslatha’s offspring. A frightening thought, and thankfully, a mistaken one.


Tarkleigh: Another damned god, you say? Yeah, that figures. A primitive deity from a primitive time, crawling up out of the dirt with a view to enslaving us all with its creepy bloody offspring.

I think we could all do without gods like that. So here, take something for the road ahead, the way things are going, it’ll be a tough one.
