Complete Diablo 4 Reject the Mother Side Quest Guide

The Reject the Mother side quest in Diablo 4 requires players to first locate a Torn Note in the Tusmaa Rift in Dry Steppes.

From there, they must head to the Rift of a Thousand Eyes in the far north of Tusmaa Rift and use the No emote in front of the secret shrine to Lilith.

If you don’t have the No emote equipped, don’t worry. We show you how to equip it as well as full detailed instructions on how to complete the quest below:

  1. To start the quest, head towards the Reject the Mother Side Quest marker in the Tusmaa Rift zone of Dry Steppes (see map below).
