While exploring Sanctuary in Diablo 4, you might encounter a side quest called The Pilgrim's Footsteps - but to complete it and obtain the associated rewards, you'll need to solve a riddle-based puzzle.

Since not everyone is an expert in solving riddles, The Pilgrim's Footsteps can be one of the most challenging quests in the game, and quite a few people are finding it hard to complete. If you're one of them, keep reading as I walk you through the entire quest.
