Game start: Make your way to the New Tristram Gate and Kill the Dead attacking the Gate

Upon beginning a new character and starting the game, your first task will be to travel up the small road you start out on to reach New Tristram and talk with Captain Rumford. After a brief conversation you will be assaulted by two separate waves of Risen, the second being much larger than the first. This is a good time to test your abilities and learn the controls, which are easy to pick up, as the Risen are fairly weak and easy to kill.

Talk to Captain Rumford and Leah in the Slaughtered Calf Inn

Once you have beaten back the attacking zombies, talk to the captain to open the gate to New Tristram then head to the Slaughtered Calf Inn to talk to Leah, Deckard Cain’s niece. She will alert you to Deckard having been left behind in the depths of the Old Cathedral, however it is cut short when some of the ill soldiers turn into Risen and attack.

Kill the Risen, Talk to Leah again and Talk to Captain Rumford again.

When the Risen turn, dispatch them with Leah’s help to learn just what foulness plagues New Tristram. Afterwards you can head back outside and over to the gate where you will have to talk to the captain again.

Kill the Wretched Mother
