Where to Find Altar of Rites in Diablo 3

UPDATE: A lot of people are experiencing problems while trying to use the Altar of Rites in multiplayer. Namely, the first person that interacts with it becomes the only one who can do so, leaving the other player in a lurch. We explain how to deal with it in our Altar of Rites Co-Op Bug Fix guide. Original text follows.

To find the location of the Altar of Rites in Diablo 3, you need to go to New Tristram. From the teleport, head left and follow the path that leads around and behind the inn / barn. You will come across the altar in a matter of seconds, right as the path takes a turn to the right. You an see what it looks like in the screenshot above. It’s all pretty simple; nothing much to write home about. Except, there are plenty of players that have presumably read the post announcing PTR 2.7.5 and have rushed to the location of the Altar of Rites, only to find nothing there. What gives? Why can’t they find the thing? Is the location different for every player or something? Well…

See, in order to find the location of the Diablo 3 Altar of Rites, you first need to be playing on the PTR, rather than the live game. To make the switch, just find the option above the Play button and change it to Public Test Realm. However, now we have to address the problem of people who are playing the PTR, but still, the altar is refusing to spawn. Well, that’s because you also need to be playing a seasonal character. If you’re not, then no altar for you. Only once both of these requirements are met will the Altar of Rites appear in its proper place and allow you to interact with it. And that’s basically all there is to it.
