Diablo IV Unearthed Regrets: Where To Find the Shallow Grave

July 25, 2023

Diablo 4 Unearthed Regrets is a side-quest you can start in The Writhing Mire area of the Hawezar region.

Thus, Unearthed Regrets counts as one of the 49 Hawezar side-quests, and to complete it, you must help Kres with the last task he has for you.

Kres is the NPC tangled in vines, who you’ve already met in the Tangled Memories and Growing Reminders side-quests, and this time he wants you to dig up a grave and burn what you find.

As such, you should definitely check the walkthrough below if you encounter any problems with D4 Unearthed Regrets side-quest.

How To Start Unearthed Regrets Quest in Diablo 4

Unearthed Regrets becomes available after completing the previous two side-quest you get from Kres, Tangled Memories and Growing Reminders, both already mentioned.

Also, you’ll need to reach the Hawezar region in Act 5 of Diablo 4.

Once you’re good to go, you must make your way to Kres, who literally has nothing better to do than wait for you in the northwestern corner of The Writhing Mire area.

You have the exact location of the NPC marked on the next map.

The fastest way to reach Kres is to use The Tree of Whispers Waypoint and then get on your mount to cover the rest of the distance.

When you get to the quest giver, he will tell you that he has one final request for you, and that is to find the shallow grave by the tunnel of gnarled trees, dig it up, then burn everything inside.

Now let’s see where the shallow grave is located precisely.
