Maximizing Renown Gains - Which Dungeons Have Side Quests in Diablo 4

Before we list the Diablo 4 dungeons with side quests, let's talk about why they're important to consider. The reason is primarily due to renown gains.

When you complete a side quest or clear a dungeon for the first time, you'll earn renown. This mechanic itself is important, as it allows you to unlock bonuses per region. It's good to keep this concept in mind if you're new to the game, or if you plan on starting from scratch when participating in seasonal content.

Left: Light's Watch has a nifty reward for Sorcerers; Right: You'll want to venture into Hoarfrost Demise as a Necromancer.

Similarly, dungeon completions provide you with a Legendary Aspect that's automatically saved in your Codex of Power. This lets you imprint a particular perk to a valid item so you can fine-tune your build.

In any case, let's go back to the Diablo 4 dungeons with side quests. A handy list has been compiled by Reddit user Tyndy, as well as other players. Likewise, we have a dungeon locations guide, in case you'd like to know all the Aspect rewards in the game. Moreover, we also suggest checking out our Strongholds guide, as there are some areas that will only become available once you've conquered the Stronghold in question.

Left: You'll need to conquer Tul Dulra Stronghold in Scosglen to gain access to a couple of dungeons and side quests; Right: Chieftain Ealda's quest chain has objectives in two dungeons in the Dry Steppes.
