The only redeeming quality that it possesses is a D2R feature


    This page provides information about the Lower Kurast region in Diablo 2: Resurrected, including details about the enemies you can encounter, their immunities, how to reach this area, and what builds and characters are most effective at farming in this region.

    In Act 3, Lower Kurast is a relatively unremarkable area that doesn't seem to have much of any significance to it. It is noteworthy in the average playthrough primarily due to the fact that it marks the end of the annoying jungle levels that came before it, but other than that, it does not house any quest objectives or Super Unique enemies. It has very few redeeming qualities other than a Waypoint, which is a feature that can be found in all of the city areas of Kurast. The fact that it is not even an area of level 85 makes it an unlikely candidate for farming.

    Lower Kurast's sole redeeming quality is that it is home to a significant number of Super Chests, which also happens to be the primary reason why this location is explored. A campfire that is encircled by seven torches can be found on virtually every map of Lower Kurast. There is a hut to the northwest that contains two Super Chests, and another hut to the northeast that contains a third Super Chest. Both of these huts are relatively unimportant on their own, but together they contain three Super Chests. What could possibly be more satisfying than looting three Super Chests? Taking even more! Lower Kurast comes through once again, as each game has a chance to produce two bonfires and, consequently, six Super Chests.

    Enter through the Lower Kurast Waypoint, quickly search for the bonfire (or bonfires), loot the Super Chests in the nearby huts, and then repeat the process until you have made a profit. This is an excellent method for acquiring gems, jewels, charms (ideally including +Skills Grand Charms), and runes, the latter of which is the most important. These chests have a chance of dropping high runes up to Ber, and assuming you have a good clear rate, this is one of the quickest ways to acquire high runes. This is more true in singleplayer than it is in multiplayer due to the fact that you can find a really good map (one with two bonfires relatively close to the Waypoint) and farm them as quickly as you please without having to worry about a game creation cooldown between runs in singleplayer. Despite this, clearing the area in multiplayer is relatively quick and simple, especially when using a Sorceress, and can be done as part of a longer series of runs.

    The only disadvantage is that you will not be getting very much in the way of unique or set items by doing this (aside from whatever drops from the monsters you incidentally kill while doing this runs), so if you're looking for sweet gear, you're probably not going to find very much of that by doing these runs. Due to the fact that it is a midgame zone and not above level 85, the loot that can be found here is significantly limited. It's the most tedious thing you can do in Diablo 2 Resurrected, which is surprising given how high it ranks on the list of possible activities. You have more fortitude, patience, and determination than the rest of us if you can keep going for more than a few dozen of these runs by yourself.


    The first region of the overworld in Act 3 that is not a jungle, Lower Kurast can be found just to the north of the Flayer Jungle


    • A sight that certainly brightens one's day

    • You should be able to simply use the Waypoint that is located in Lower Kurast to get back to Lower Kurast after each run

    • This is because Lower Kurast has one

    • Lower Kurast is laid out in a rough grid format, so all you have to do to find the bonfires that are your objective is teleport up and down the rows of huts until you find the bonfire that you are looking for

    • After you have completed a few of these runs, it should become relatively simple to spot these, as they have a fairly distinctive feature that can even be seen on the minimap

    • Because of their access to Teleport, Sorceress complete these runs significantly faster than any other class, with the exception, of course, of characters who have the Enigma ability

    Lower Kurast is crawling with creatures that are common throughout Kurast, the vast majority of which you have previously encountered (or variants of). These include Zakarumites, Doom Apes, Hell Buzzards, and Tree Lurkers. Although they don't pose much of a threat, they are resistant to both fire and lightning. Because of this, the Blizzard Sorceress is an excellent candidate for doing these runs; however, in an ideal scenario, you won't be killing very many creatures at all.

    Lower Kurast has an Area Level of 80, which indicates that Champion and Unique monsters that reside there can reach a maximum Monster Level of 82 or 83, respectively. It is unfortunate that some high-end elite items cannot spawn here; as a result, you should not expect to find many endgame unique or set items dropped here.

    Lower Kurast requires speed in order to be farmed successfully, and in the absence of Enigma, nobody has more speed than a Sorceress. If you want to maximize your chances of success in this area, the Blizzard Sorceress is your best bet due to the fact that nothing in Lower Kurast will be naturally resistant to the effects of cold damage; however, any character that can get to the Diablo 2 items for sale (buy them here) in a timely manner will do just fine.
