SPOILER! Diablo 3 Secret Level Revealed!

Some players have found their way into Diablo III’s secret level, which is officially named… DiabloWikiWhimsyshire. I’m putting the video below the fold since it’s a massive spoiler if you want the surprise for yourself. I’m not even going to comment on what it looks like.

It’s amazing, though. I can say that much. Thanks to Chris for the tip.

To enter the secret level you need a Staff of Herding. The Blacksmith crafts this item, and it requires 5 rare and odd objects. They are:

DiabloWikiBlack Mushroom — Found rarely in a room on Cathedral level one.
DiabloWikiWirt’s Cowbell — Act II vendor sells it for 100,000 gold.
DiabloWikiLiquid Rainbow — Spawns in the Mysterious Cave in the Mysterious Chest in the Oasis, Act 2. Save the old man and he will open the chest.
DiabloWikiGibbering Gemstone — Random drop from Chiltara in the Caverns of Frost, Act 3. It’s in the Ballistae fight area. If you get Ice Caverns exit out try again. The mob is random.
DiabloWikiLeoric’s Shinbone — Found rarely in the fireplace in Leoric’s Manor.
DiabloWikiPlan: Staff of Herding — To teach the recipe to DiabloWikiHaedrig. Drops randomly from Izual, Act 4.

This video shows the Cow King’s ghostly conversation before he opens the level, which is accessed through that mysterious glowing red pit on Old Tristram Road. There’s also footage of some combat within the hellish environment.

Another video with more footage, this one showing four player action. The soundtrack is a cheesy 80s song which the video creator says he used since the original audio was him and his friends laughing madly on Skype.

  1. Fight ‘til the end
    Cause your life will depend
    On the strength that you have inside you

    Ah you gotta be proud
    starin’ out in the cloud
    When the odds in the game defy you


      Mike is probably going like “Fuck! Would you look at this shit. They totally stole my idea for the last act!”  

  2. One of the vendors sells Wirt’s Cowbell. It’s 100,000 gp.

    It’s a vendor in the city in Act II.

    “When the demons come, close your eyes and ring this… it takes you far, far away…” -Unknown

  3. Can’t tell if it’s just Diablo 3 or it’s secret level… What’s different?
    /ba-dum tshh

  4. Black Mushroom – This spawns in Cathedral Level 1, Act 1
    Shinbone – Spawns randomly in the fireplace in Leoric’s Manor, Act 1
    Liquid Rainbow – Spawns in the Mysterious Cave in the Mysterious Chest in the Oasis, Act 2. Save the old man and he will open the chest.

  5. … what did I just see?
    … what did I just hear?
    … is there a Unicorn King?


  6. Is the recipe for this found somewhere in-game? Or is this just a result of something lame like a leak from Blizzard or datamining?

  7. so are they all normal versions of the item for normal? could you take the normal version, and do it in inferno?

  8. To add to this. There are 4 types of staffs of herding. I bought mine for 1G from the potion vendor in Act4 Nightmare (the guy near the quartermaster to the right). The item is called Nightmarish Staff of Herding. To make it, I need “Staff of Herding” + 200k gold. So basically if you want the staff of herding for inferno, it’ll cost a massive amount of gold since you’ll have to work your way up to it.

  9. Awesome, even if we suspected this was coming!

    Why does the Demon Hunter in the first video have such poor Hatred generation?

  10. That is just awesome.

    Unicorn rainbow level was exactly what I hoped the secret level would be.

  11. can u guys add the best waypoint to get to each one? ik that leorics manor is the best for leorics shinbone(obviously) and cathedral garden(go backwards to cathedral level one, not downstairs to 2) for the mushroom

    edit: caverns of forst/ice caverns can be found in the fields of slaughter which is just past the bridge of korsikk. also chiltara does not always spawn ALSO i found only icefall caves in one..

  12. This is terrible ugly and it should not be in serious game … its completly carton ugly graphic and i cant say how much iam dissapointed.

  13. yeap, cow level was actually epic and worthy effort. I’m not seeing players want to play this pony crap on scale how cow level in D2 was played.

    • I’m pretty sure that’s the point.  They don’t want people grinding a secret level for items instead of the rest of the game.

      • So it’s lame because I don’t see nothing wrong with cool cow level with cows fort or something, where people would eager to go sometimes just for fun to rest from “the rest of the game”. Instead they just did ugly and weird level. At Blizzard it was probably like “omg, it’s another awesome idea, let’s do it”…

    • Yeah I feel the same, don’t like the secret level at all. I’d have prefered they made something cool but not so stupid. Anyway seems most people here like it, so… guess they got it right.

  14. This is bloody brilliant, I love it!! This totally made me wanna buy the game 😯

    • I don’t even care. I’m going to buy the bell when I hit 100k, and I’m farming for the items right now.

      F you Izual. 🙁 

      • Is anyone having as much trouble as I am getting the Plan off Normal Izual? I’ve done 12 runs so far, and nothing.

        It feels like D2 running this guy over and over. 

        • nope. 1 Izual norm + 1 Izual night = book. My problem is a rainbow. Really bored to run Oasis once again. Where did this cave spawns???

  15. I bet a secret-ultra-awesome item might drop here in the Inferno difficulty.

    Or maybe just a blue Socketed Ring. 8)
