In Diablo 2 Act 3 you will be tasked to look for the Gidbinn, which is somewhere in the Flayer Jungle. This is part of the “Blade of the Old Religion” quest. While initially this can seem like an easy and straightforward quest, there are actually several things that make it much harder to do than it appears at first. The first of these is its location. And the second is that it can often bug out, for as of yet unknown reasons. If you are struggling with completing this quest, our Look For the Gidbinn in the Flayer Jungle – Diablo 2 Resurrected guide will help you figure out where to look and how you can avoid the bugs.
Where to Find Gidbinn in Diablo 2 Resurrected
The Gidbinn can be found deep inside the Flayer Jungle. Since, like the original Diablo 2, all the maps in D2 Resurrected are also randomized, we can’t show you the exact location, as it will be different for each player. However, there are a couple of rules that make finding it a lot easier. The first of these is that the Gidbinn is always inside a village. So always thoroughly search every village you come across in the Flayer Jungle. The second rule is that the Gidbinn is usually a screen or two away from the entrance to the Flayer Dungeon.
How to Pick Up The Gidbinn in Diablo 2 Resurrected
The first time you encounter the Gidbinn, you may be a bit confused as to what it actually is. The actual Gidbinn, the one you need to get in order to complete this quest, is a dagger. But, the first Gidbinn you will come across is a sort of altar. It has two big horns sticking out of it, and when you hover over it, you will see that it is called Gidbinn. Interact with it to activate it. This will spawn a wave of enemies. One of these enemies should be a unique Rat Man. When you kill this creature, it will drop the Gidbinn dagger, which you then need to pick up.
However, there is a bug that can happen here. Sometimes this monster simply won’t spawn. If that happens, there’s nothing to do (at least, not until Blizzard patches this bug) but reload the game and try again. Another problem that can occur is that, the Rat Man can spawn but doesn’t drop the Gidbinn dagger when you kill it. This seems to be related to you killing it too far away from the altar. The solution to this is to kill it while close to the altar. It should then drop the Gidbinn as usual.
