The secret level has been unveiled, and boy it can’t be anymore different then the Diablo 2 secret cow level. Almost everyone that was following Diablo 3 back in 2008 knows there were a lot of people voicing their opinion about how “cartoonie” the game looked (which people still do today), so Blizzard decided to make a T-shirt that was a rainbow with unicorns saying Diablo 3, stating it was the official logo.
With the release of Diablo 3, the development team decided to not add another secret cow level but play on their humor of the unicorn(pony) T-shirt and make the secret level Whimsyshire. Below are the steps you need to take to acquire this secret level:
Step 1 (Acquire the following items):
- The Black Mushroom from Cathedral level 1 in Act 1
- Leoric’s Shinbone from the fireplace in Leoric’s Manor in Act 1.
- Liquid Rainbow in a Mysterious Cave from a Mysterious chest in the Oasis Act 2. To enter the cave you must find a random spawn vendor in the Oasis.
- Wirts Bell from a vendor in the Bazaar Act 2. This item costs 100,000 gold.
- Gibbering Gemstone drops from Chiltara, a rare spawn in the Frozen Cave Act 3. This is in the same area that you destroy the ballistics.
- The recipe for the Staff of Herding drop of Izual in Act 4.
Step 2 (Build the Staff):
- Using all the items found above, the recipe for the Staff of Herding, and 50,000 gold. This is built at the Blacksmith.
Step 3 (Enjoy):
- Take the staff to the open red glowing crevasse on Old Tristram Road in Act 1, use the staff and accept the quest.
If you’ve had a chance to play on this secret level or you’re just seeing it for the first time, lets hear what you have to say about this fun and overly happy secret pony level.
