The first act in the Diablo 4 campaign takes place in the Fractured Peaks. Early on, you’ll be able to visit the region’s capital, Kyovashad, which has numerous mechanics for you to try out. Here’s our Diablo 4 Kyovashad hub guide to help you with the many features in this city.

The Diablo 4 Kyovashad hub is unlocked early in the campaign. Basically, you’ll meet a priest named Lorath Nair while you’re in the hamlet of Nevesk. After Lilith’s involvement is revealed, you’ll travel northeast, eventually reaching the city of Kyovashad. There, you’re told to inscribe your greatest sin on a tablet (i.e., fear, anger, pride, greed, or nothing but scribbles). Only then will the gates be opened, and you can continue onward with the main quest.

The weapon vendor in Kyovashad has a special item that’s part of the main quest.

The Diablo 4 Kyovashad hub has numerous vendors that provide different functions and mechanics, and you can see their icons when you open your map. Some vendor types can also be found in other towns/hamlets, not just in Kyovashad.

In any case, we list some features that you can discover. Do take note that a few of these might not be available during the beta:

Waypoint – Allows you to fast travel to other waypoint locations that you’ve unlocked. Activating your town portal always returns you to Kyovashad, but you can select a different waypoint on the world map.Healer – Restores your health and potion charges.Alchemist – Used to upgrade your potions, craft reagents, and brew elixirs.Weapon and armor vendor – These NPCs sell generic stuff, usually nothing that’s worth your while.Blacksmith – Lets you salvage items for materials, or upgrade them to increase their power.Inn – Has your stash and wardrobe. You can learn more in our transmog and dyes/pigments guide.World Tier Statue – Allows you to increase the overall difficulty and rewards, as long as you meet the requirements. You can learn more in our World Tiers guide.Rings and amulets – This type of NPC sells accessories.Jeweler – Allows you to craft gems and add sockets to items.Stable Master – Used to select a mount.Purveyor of Curiosities – Lets you exchange the Murmuring Obols you’ve amassed for random gear.Occultist – Can imprint aspects via the Codex of Power, essentially adding a skill-based affix to an item.Kyovashad and other locations in Diablo 4 have sidequests (i.e., blue exclamation point icons). For instance, the one in Kyovashad tasks you with cheering a bunch of guards, which you can complete by opening your action wheel and selecting the Cheer emote.

Mobile ‘paid competitive gamers’ are on the rise Newzoo & MPL

Connect with top gaming leaders in Los Angeles at GamesBeat Summit 2023 this May 22-23. Register here. Newzoo and Mobile Premier League (MPL) released a report this week about paid competitive games (PCG). According to the report, this new subsection of mobile games represent a new and growing form of game monetization. By the report’s definition, PCGs are skill-based mobile games that offer monetary rewards, and players earn those rewards by participating in PvP contests. It’s separate from play-to-earn games, though both categories reward players with monetary prizes. P2E games tend to reward players with cryptocurrency while PCGs offer real money. PGCs account for 7% of the global consumer spending on games, and Newzoo expects it to rise to 14% by 2024. Notably, PCGs are formatted as ”skill-based”

Like A Dragon Ishin: A mini-review Kaser Focus

Connect with top gaming leaders in Los Angeles at GamesBeat Summit 2023 this May 22-23. Register here. It’s a strange week when the announcement of Counter-Strike 2 is the highlight. We had a lot of interesting news from GDC, and peeks at upcoming games like Redfall and a TMNT game adaptation of The Last Ronin. But I’ve been in a mood to talk about games themselves. So indulge me while I talk about a title that got eclipsed when Resident Evil 4 Remake dropped into my lap: Like A Dragon: Ishin! I returned to playing the game after RE4R and have a few thoughts about it. Ishin takes place in Bakumatsu-era Japan, and follows a fictionalized telling of real ronin Ryoma Sakamoto. He, like every other character in

The enduring legacy of Gordon Moore

Connect with top gaming leaders in Los Angeles at GamesBeat Summit 2023 this May 22-23. Register here. Gordon Moore, the elder statesman of the technology industry, passed away today at the age of 94. He was one of the nation’s greatest citizens as a pioneer of the semiconductor industry and chairman emeritus of Intel, which he cofounded in 1968. He was known for formulating Moore’s Law in 1965. He predicted that the number of components on a chip would double every couple of years or so. That prediction has held up remarkably well for about 58 years. In 1965, chip makers could fit about 64 transistors on a chip. By 1971, Intel could fit 2,300 transistors on its first microprocessor, the Intel 4004. Nvidia can now put 80

Reigning VALORANT world champions use an unstoppable comp on Lotus

LOUD remain at the top of the VALORANT world, having been crowned the game’s second-ever world champion in 2022 and just missing out on making history in the LOCK//IN finals earlier this month. Heading into the first-ever VCT Americas season, LOUD is a heavy favorite to qualify for both Masters Tokyo and Champions 2023 with its South American roster not missing a beat despite replacing two of its players. Aside from boasting one of the most well-respected lineups in the world, however, LOUD has demonstrated time and time again how there are levels to their approach to the game from a strategy standpoint, and the team recently showcased this on Lotus. During LOCK//IN, LOUD actually didn’t play the newest VALORANT map until its very final best-of-five series. Despite

Funko Has Laid Off Mondo Staff, But Its Movie Poster Business Will Continue
