To complete the Secret of the Spring side quest in Diablo 4, you must head to the northeast of Kyovashad in the Fractured Peaks zone. Before you can begin the quest, you must find a Discarded Note, which can be found on the ground. The note is described as "a crumpled note left on the ground."

Once you've interacted with the note, you'll be instructed to go to the small hot spring. However, what you must do to complete the quest is not immediately clear, as it requires you to "solve the note's riddle." To solve the Secret Of The Spring riddle in Diablo 4, you need to open your journal and read the note: "Beacon of warmth in winter's embrace, patience rewarded by nature's own grace."

As the riddle suggests, you need a bit of patience to complete the quest. All this entails is to open up your Emote wheel by pressing "E" on the keyboard or the up D-pad on your controller and select the "Wait" Emote option while standing next to the hot spring. If the "Wait" emote isn't on your wheel by default, you can select "Customize" to add it.

As soon as you've used the "Wait" Emote, a Buried Chest will appear, and opening it will complete the Secret of the Spring side quest in Diablo 4. You'll receive 624 XP, 280 Gold, and 2 Raw Hide for your efforts. And that's all there is to it! If you're familiar with the Raising Spirits side quest in Diablo 4, completing the Secret of the Spring quest might feel somewhat familiar as it requires players to use the "Cheer" Emote to boost the morale of the soldiers at the training militia.
