Hidden Lair Locations:
What are Hidden Lairs in Diablo Immortal?
While focusing on the story, completing battle pass challenges, or simply mowing down enemies to farm XP, you’ve probably noticed the message “A hidden lair has opened in this area” appearing on random times.
Hidden lairs are rotating dungeons that give you and your party at least one normal gem per run, but usually more. You can get other loot, but gems are the main reason to do Hidden Lairs.
Three normal gems of the same type can then be combined to create more powerful versions and slotted into your gear. You must kill the Den Guardians to complete the dungeon.
When the Hidden Lair message appears, the entrance of one will open randomly in the area you are currently exploring. You will need to visit all of the Hidden Lair locations to see which one you can now enter. A blue portal-like symbol will appear on your minimap when you’re near the revealed hidden lair, and its entrance will glow.
You need to be quick though, because if another player finds the hidden lair first, you won’t be able to enter after them unless you’re both in the same party. If you are looking for normal gems and you get the prompt asking you to join someone’s party to participate in a hidden lair, be sure to say yes. He will then transport you to the lair with your new party member.
Inside the Hidden Lair, you and your party must complete the main objectives, and you can also do optional secondary objectives for more loot and chances for more gems. After the End Guardian is killed, a red portal to another level may appear. If so, we recommend entering it for a chance to get more rewards.
Head to the blue portal to return to the area you were in before (this will show up on your map once you discover it). You can take as long as you want to explore Hidden Lairs, as there is no time limit.
However, there may be a weekly cap to the number of gems you can obtain by running Hidden Lairs. This is unconfirmed at this time, and might be a bug for some, so we’ll update this page when we have more information.
Diablo Immortal is here! If you’re just getting started, you’ll want to know the best class for beginners – including Necromancer and Crusader – and the current Battle Pass rewards. Our Legendary Gems and Charms guides can help you achieve the strongest build, and we also have handy maps for each Hidden Lair location, a nine-lamp puzzle solution, and the Hydra and Golem locations.
Ashwold Cemetery Hidden Lair Locations
The first area in Diablo Immortal to contain Hidden Lairs is the Ashwold Graveyard. It has 18 Hidden Lair locations, so you’ll need to loop around the area to check them all out.
There are no hidden lairs in Lord’s Rest, and only one in The Outskirts.
Darkwood Hidden Lair Locations
After Ashwold Cemetery you will come to the Dark Wood area. This area contains 11 Hidden Lair locations, mostly on the north side of the map.
Shassar Sea Hidden Lair Locations
The next big area is Shassar Sea, which contains 10 Hidden Lair locations. They’re pretty evenly spread out, so you’ll have to do a full loop of the area to check them all out.
Zoltun Kulle Hidden Lair Library Locations
You will need to be at least level 35 to enter Zultun Kulle’s library, which contains eight hidden locations. This area can be a bit boring to explore, as it is quite large and leads to many dead ends.
The only area you can skip looking for hidden lairs in the library is the path just north of the hidden alcove, as there are none.
Bilefen Hidden Lair Locations
Bilfen has 10 Hidden Lairs, with six clustered around the northern edges of Infested Quagmire, with the other four south of Crimsonblade Haven.
You’ll need to loop through Putrid March or Port Justinia to check out all 10 possible lair locations.
Mount Zavain Hidden Lair Locations
There are 10 Hidden Lair locations on Mount Zavain, four of which are clustered to the north around Zakarum Cemetery. You can find one in the far north, and the others are scattered along the edges to the south.
Frozen Tundra Hidden Lair Locations
You’ll need to loop the area, as Frozen Tundra contains 11 Hidden Lair locations, scattered across the map. Three are clustered around the ruins of Sescueron to the east, and another three near Lake Everfrost to the west.
Realm of Damnation Hidden Lair Locations
The final area (for now) is the Realm of Damnation, and it contains 10 hidden lairs, spread across two areas. The northern zone has eight dens, while the southern zone has only two.
If more areas or locations of Hidden Lair are added in future patches, we’ll update this page.
Good luck farming those gems in Diablo Immortal!
