Where to Find Diablo 2 Resurrected Cairn Stones Location

To find the Cairn Stones location in Diablo 2 Resurrected, you have to search the Stony Field area. Unfortunately, due to the maps being randomly generated, we can’t really point you to the exact place, but they will be somewhere in the Stony Field zone. The image above should at least help you figure out what it is you’re looking for. It’s basically a set of five standing stones in the shape of a pentagon, with a sixth standing stone nearby. However, that sixth stone doesn’t do much of anything, but at least you can use it for orientation, I guess. Either way, once you find the Cairn Stones, there’s still the matter of activating them, which brings us to our next point.

How to Activate Cairn Stones in Diablo 2 Resurrected

To activate the Diablo 2 Resurrected Cairn Stones once you’ve found their location, you’ll have to go through a long detour. There’s an underground passage that links the stone circle to the Dark Forest, so head that way. You will have to interact with the Tree of Inifuss once you get to the forest, but there will be a boss called Treehead Woodfist trying to stop you. You can defeat the creature or just run past and get to the tree; that’s entirely your choice. Once you interact with the Tree of Inifuss, you should get a schematic of the order you need to interact with the standing stones. This is also randomized, meaning we can’t give you an exact solution. Head back to Stony Field and complete the puzzle to open the portal.
