The Woodsman of Nevesk side quest in Diablo 4 is located in the southern part of Kyovashad, east of the Nevesk Waypoint. To start the quest, you must speak to the NPC Magdalena, who will task you with finding the weapon of a local legend - the woodsman's axe. Once the quest is accepted, the next objective is to find the axe.

To locate this item, run northeast from Magdalena by following the path through Icehowl Taiga to the location indicated on the image in Boulder Ridge. Avoid any enemy mobs along the way to avoid unnecessary delays. Upon reaching the designated area, you'll eventually stumble upon the woodsman's axe location in Diablo 4. Interact with the axe to spawn the woodsman and engage him in a battle.

You'll be happy to know this beast is relatively easy to take down. After beating the woodsman, you must return to Magdalena to complete the quest. Your reward for completing The Woodsman of Nevesk side quest in Diablo 4 will include Gold, XP, Renown, and Obols. And that's pretty much all there is to it! But why stop there? In addition to the Woodsman of Nevesk quest, two other side quests are available around the Nevesk Waypoint in Diablo 4: the Chain of Possession and Legacy Unmade.

These side quests are all relatively straightforward and won't take much time to complete, offering easy gold and XP rewards to help you level up and progress further in the game.
