Home to the powerful and mysterious Druids, the Scosglen area of Diablo 4's world of Sanctuary is a harsh area featuring dense forests, tall mountains, and an ominous environment. However, it's also home to several sought-after items, abilities, NPCs, vendors, and so much more. 

So if this area is up next on your journey through Sanctuary, then keep reading. Below we will cover everything you need to know about the Scosglen area in Diablo 4, from its Map locations and POIs to its challenging but rewarding dungeons and strongholds.

Update on 7 July 2023: We've updated this article with any new information and details for Diablo 4's Scosglen region.

Diablo 4 Scosglen Overview & Lore

Scosglen, situated in the northeastern region of Sanctuary, serves as the ancestral homeland of the Druids, a group of nature-oriented warrior-poets. The landscape of Scosglen is themed after the real-life location of Scotl and takes inspiration from highlands and moors characterized by rough terrains, including rocky highlands and dense, eerie forests.

The centerpiece of Scosglen is the majestic oak tree called Glór-an-Fháidha, which holds great significance for the Druids, providing them with wisdom and guidance.

Here is the official description of the area provided by Blizzard's developers:

The untamed lands of Scosglen are as verdant as they are deadly. Those who get lost in the woods seldom return, their screams muted by spine-chilling howls. The druids who dwell here will do anything to protect their way of life, including risking the loss of their humanity to unleash the beast within.

However, be prepared, as uncovering the hidden secrets of the Druids within Scosglen will not be an easy task. The untamed and beautiful landscape poses challenges, and you should not underestimate the region simply because of its tranquil appearance. The presence of Demons, Drowned creatures, and Phantoms will test your survival skills, adding a layer of danger to the seemingly serene surroundings.

Scosglen Stronghold Locations in Diablo 4

Strongholds are event areas occupied by different enemies that must be defeated to convert the stronghold into a friendly part of the Region. Usually, once a Stronghold is purged of enemies, it transforms and becomes a player-friendly town. However, there are situations where it may instead become a dungeon, presenting further challenges.

  • Moordaine Lodge – Located in the Eastern part of the Region.
  • Túr Dúlra – Located in the Western part of the Region.

Upon successfully capturing a Stronghold in Diablo 4, players will receive area-specific Renown Points as a reward. However, the benefits of completing a Stronghold go beyond just Renown. Players may also unlock a range of world rewards, including access to new dungeons, quests, and Waypoints.

Certain Strongholds may even offer shortcuts to other areas as a completion reward, introducing new opportunities for exploration. Players can look forward to interacting with new NPCs that emerge as the Stronghold is conquered. Moreover, completing a Stronghold can trigger the arrival of fresh vendors, the discovery of fragments of lore, or the unveiling of paths leading to other Altars of Lilith.

Cerrigar serves as the primary bustling town hub within the Scosglen, boasting a significant size and hosting numerous NPCs to interact with.
