Diablo 4 Reject the Mother Quest Bridge Blocked by Red Wall Bug

Reject the Mother is a side quest in Diablo 4, which players can trigger by collecting Torn Note in the Tusmaa Rift zone of the Dry Steppes region. Once you grab the note, a message will pop up. It reads as follows: “Shout your rejection, ‘no Mother of mine’ at her towering statue in Rift’s hidden shrine.”

Before we jump to the issue with Red Wall blocking the bridge to the quest area, let’s first see what you need to do here. You will need to reject Lilith at her secret shrine.The quest marker will guide you to the specific location, which is in close proximity to where you discovered the note. It is situated just outside the entrance of the Dark Ravine Dungeon. Check out our map below to know where you need to go.

Just outside of the entrance to the Dark Ravine, you’ll see a summoning circle. What you need to do here is to equip the “No” emote to your Emote Wheel. You can do this by pressing E and then going to “Customize”. Finally, use the “No” emote in this area (in front of Lilith’s shrine), and you will reject Lilith in this way and complete the side quest. The Heretic’s Cache will appear near the shrine, with the rewards awaiting you there.

Unfortunately, if you leave this area before completing (but after accepting) the side quest, it will bug out and you will not be able to approach the quest area. There will be a big Red Wall blocking the bridge just before the “Reject the Mother” quest area. Judging by the reports of other players, for now, there doesn’t seem to be a solution for this. Nonetheless, we will make sure to update the guide if we find one. If you know of a workaround, share it with us in the comments section!

    The only workaround is to find someone who hasn’t done this act 2 quest, group with them. They pick up the ‘reject the mother’ quest you already have. You both go complete the quest.

    I just completed the quest. There was no summoning rock at all. I went to the shrine are, stood in the circle and emotes ” no”. It completed.
