How to Get to Whimsyshire – Diablo 3 Secret Level – Detailed Guide

Sup my Fellow Little Nerds! Here is a detailed walk-through on how to get into the D3 Secret Level called Whimsyshire!

You need several things: 1. Black Mushroom (Act I) 2. Liquid Rainbow (Act II) 3. Gibbering Gemstone (Act III) 4. Wirts Cowbell (Act II) 5. [Plans: Staff of Herding] (Act IV) 6. Leorics Shinbone (Act I)

Reminder: You can acquire these parts in any order. The guide is written in a chronological order for simplicities sake.

Here is a Pro-Tip: Get some friends to do this with you. For the RNG parts, run them individually until you encounter the chest/rare spawn you need, then have everyone join that game.

From this point on, I will assume that you have completed one play-through of the game so consider this a spoiler warning for any potential spoilers it may contain.

Part One: Black Mushroom

The black mushroom is located in Act I, in the Cathedral. I saw lots of places that said that it could spawn on any floor which I found to be complete bullshit. I watched many different videos and read several different guides and in each picture they were located in the exact same place in the exact same room on the exact same floor.

My recommendation is to start the quest “Return to Tristam” on Normal.

The following method is the one that I used to obtain the mushroom. Apparently you can find the mushroom on more than one layout as a rare spawn.

Take the waypoint to the Cathedral garden, go up to the first floor and stop. If you do not immediately see a large staircase that you MUST walk up in order to continue backtracking, then you do not have the correct dungeon layout for it to spawn. Town portal, Leave game, and resume again. Repeat until you see a large stair case. When you find it will be in a room shaped like this with two entrances. (I snagged the image from a random page, no screenshots are mine). The mushrooms are a random spawn in the correct dungeon so keep leaving and zoning in until you get the right setup and explore until you find that room. Once you find THAT room, if it’s empty leave and do it again you won’t find it anywhere else. It’s impossible to miss when you see it, it looks like I giant growth in the floor.


Repeatedly clear Level 1 of the Cathedral until you find the mushroom, it will be in a room somewhere.

Part two: Leorics Shinbone

The shinbone is located in Leorics manor. I forget the quest name, maybe the imprisoned angel or something. Anyway, take the way point to leorics manor (the room where you walk forward a bit and there is a balcony and glass windows and stuff. Back track until you are at the very start. If you start walking back to where you were there is a room to the right of the staircase . At the end of this room is a fireplace, the shinbone is a rare spawn in the fireplace. It will either be empty or have a click-able “burnt firewood” or something to that affect. Click it and loot your shinbone. You may have to repeat it several times as it also is not a guaranteed spawn.

Part three: Wirt’s Cowbell

If you go to the last quest of Act III zone in and back track to the starting area. Go to the top left region of the map with the starting way point and look for a vendor named Squirt. She will sell you Wirts Bell for 100k. You can also get Wirts Cowbell from Squirt in Act II. She’s in the market (near the sewer).

Part four: Liquid Rainbow

Take the waypoint to Path of the Oasis. Follow the map along the southern most border until you find a little path heading further south to a little clearing. Look for Zaven the Alchemist, who must be saved from Deathly Haunts. He is not always down there. If you save him he will open a path to a dungeon. You must explore this for a mysterious chest or a resplendent chest (as reported in the comments). The alchemist dude is a rare spawn, and the chest is a rare spawn within the dungeon. Good luck and happy RNG.

Part five: Gibbering Gemstone

Go to Act III, take the waypoint to the bridge of korsikk. Run through the field ahead of you and check the top left corner, bottom left corner, and bottom right corner of the map for Cave of Frost Level 1. Again, the dungeon is a rare spawn. Inside the dungeon on floor two, you may get a rare spawn creature named Chiltara. It will drop the gemstone. I’d recommend running this on normal running past everything until you get to the second floor, and fully exploring the second floor to find him. Another rare spawn within a rare spawn type deal. Happy RNG.

Part six: The Blacksmithing Pattern.

Rare drop off of Izual. Start at the third quest. Clear up to izual, which you will encounter during the quest The Prime Evil. I thought I started too far but you fight him right before diablo. This one is a pain in the ass unless your lucky, because killing the boss gives you a checkpoint and you have to unfortunately re clear the whole area completely and kill him again. I was lucky enough to get it my first try. But my friends were not.

Once you get all these items. Train the blacksmith with your pattern, and make the item (costs about 50k for the staff.)

Take it to Act I. Take the old Tristam way point and head to the left back to the Old Tristram Road (you must be on normal with this version of the staff). If you follow the map border down the side of the map you will see a ghost come out of a cow skeleton. Talk to him and he will open the portal. Have fun.

Nightmare, Hell, and Inferno versions of the staff.

In order to access Whimsyshire on a higher difficulty than normal you must first obtain the version of the staff as listed above. Once you have it you must go to Act IV on the next highest difficulty (you must be on nightmare to obtain the nightmare blacksmith plan). Take the way point to Bastion Keep, and head all the way to the right and find the healer. Next to him there should be a vendor that sells the plan for 1g. It may not be on them the first time so leave and try again.

The only reagent for the new stave’s are the one you already have and a large quantity of gold. As reported, the normal staff is 50k, nightmare is 200k, hell is 500k, and inferno is 1million.

The Best Diablo 3 Power Leveling and Speed Guide

Hello My Fellow Little Nerds!


I want to share with you a couple of reasons why it sucks to be at a low level in Diablo 3.

First off, Diablo 3 is a game about items, 90% of the end game will be about magic finding the best gear, and also, making money, but that just circles around to once again, having the best gear.

Low level characters don’t make the minimum requirement to use good unique and set items because their stats are not up to par yet, hence you can’t magic find efficiently. It hurts your character progress and it takes up space in your backpack.

You can try and get something cool from the auction house, but it wouldn’t work for you until much later because you can’t use it.

You can’t go on quests with your higher level friends

It’s like being a ‘feeder’ in League of Legends or Dota2.

People will always need to watch your back. You become an easy target for the mobs. Your team mates need to spend more healing spells on you to keep you alive.

And worst of all, you do not contribute as much damage for the team.

You cannot play at their level and the worst case scenario is that they will be forced to leave you behind.

You can’t use the best skills for your character

Everyone knows that the best stuff are all at the end.

Back in the ol D2 days, people were dying to get whirlwind for the Barbarian(early d2 days). Endless grinding and killing all day just to get that. Pfft, no thanks.

You can prevent all that with Jonathan Bradley Smith’s latest power leveling guide called Diablo 3 Speed.


You must learn from him experience.

It contains cutting edge information that will propel you to level 60 in no time because it contains a step by step fast track to max out your character.
Gone are the days of killing the same mob over and over again for XP, this great method laid out in detail in the guide, GUARANTEES that you will be above your friends level, with at least 33% less playtime.

If you want to do things the smart way, be sure to check out his guide because you don’t want to be left behind and get called a noob! :P

Easy Gold Farming in Diablo 3 Guide


Best Ways To Farm Gold In Diablo 3

1. Farming Inferno – Inferno is the hardest act in Diablo 3 and will drop the best items and gold. Powerful monsters reside in Inferno Difficulty, and Act 4 in Inferno Difficulty inhabits the most powerful monsters in Diablo 3. Defeating these monsters will net you the largest amount of Gold per monster killed. For maximum farming efficiency you will need to have your farming character at max level with the best gear for your character’s particular Class. You will gain the most Gold per hour in Inferno Difficulty.

2. Using AOE you can kill so much faster than if you only single target DPS. More gold per hour! Using Area of Effect Abilities you can destroy large groups of monsters in seconds. Every Class in Diablo 3 has a variety of AoE Skills that can be used on enemies. null null

3. Best Farming Builds- The Class Builds for Gold Farming will focus largely on Area of Effect and Multiple Target Abilities. The DPS, or damage per second, is better the more, and higher the number is. Aka 10 dps is more than 5 dps. The reason for this is that More Damage Per Second= More Monsters Killed Per Minute = More Gold Drops Per Hour. Not only that, but the optimal Gold Farming builds will ensure that your character does not run out of his or her respective Skill Resource while Farming (Eg. Fury, Spirit, Arcane Power). This will translate into wasted time, a gold farmer’s worst enemy.

4. Don’t Waste Time- It is extremely important to be efficient while Gold Farming, and you should really focus on avoiding wasted time. Less time Gold Farming directly translates into less Gold farmed per hour. One of the biggest time wasters is dying. Not only do you have to run all the way back to the farming spot, but you also have to spend Gold on repairs.

Higher level gear becomes more expensive to repair and can really diminish your Gold stash. Another time waster that you will want to avoid is constantly comparing item drops. Instead let your inventory fill up with items that you can sell to vendors for a decent amount of Gold. Basically limit the amount of runs you make back and forth to town and you will be a much more efficient Gold Farmer.

5. Gold Find Gear-

Make sure that you equip gear that gives +% to Gold Find. With this modifier you can growth the amount of dropped Gold by 2 times, 3 times or even more. The Demon Hunter Skill Ferret Companion will also increase the amount of Gold that will drop from enemies. Try to look for Gear on the Auction House that gives you +% to Gold Find.

Follow these tips and you will have tons of Gold in no time


Gold Farming is a gaming term and is commonly practiced in most MMORPGs. Gold Farming refers to killing monsters with the sole purpose of obtaining Gold.

The best Gold farmers find the optimal ways to gain the maximum amount of gold per hour. This involves finding the best farming spots, monsters and the best Class builds for killing groups of monsters.

Item farming is more like farming in diablo 3. Diablo 3 has so many different stats on items everything will be very random. In other words, specific items do not drop from specific monsters in Diablo 3, instead drops are random.
