Diablo 4 Malady of the Soul Quest Walkthrough

After some time in Kyovashad, you will run into a small commotion where a father is worried about his son, who appears to have been possessed.

As you happened to be passing by, Sister Octavio of the Cathedral of Light has asked for your assistance in a ritual to exorcise the demon from the boy.

You will need to follow them into the cellar to assist with saving the man’s child before the demon does more damage than it already has.

After speaking with Sister Octavia outside of the Frigid Cellar, she will thank you for your help and you will be rewarded with the following:

  • XP
  • Gold
