"Diablo 3" Wandering Merchant Guide: Adenah the Curio Vendor
This guide will cover the wandering merchant, Adenah the Curio Vendor in Diablo 3, providing information on how to locate the NPC. These characters are usually found randomly in locations outside of each act's towns and can offer convenient services and wares during your journeys through the wilds.
This is one of the wandering merchants you must find for the Market Research achievement.
Where to Find the House of Curious
The House of Curious and its occupant Adenah the Curio Vendor are a particularly rare spawn in the Fields of Misery zone, traveled through during the quest The Broken Blade in Act I, although easily accessed later via waypoints in either the fields of from the Forsaken Cemetery. Besides seeming to have a low chance to spawn in the first place, this location shares a possible spawn point slot with several others, although there are several things to look out for to make your search a little bit easier. The small area the house exists on will be labeled the Lonely Dwelling.
In the photo above you will see a rough map of the Fields of Misery, with 4 red spots, each placed over one of the possible spawn locations. One of these will always be the waypoint, another will always be Khazra Den, and a third always seems to be one of a few different dungeons.
The important tactic here, is to rule out that if you come to one of these spots that are not one of the places mentioned above, and is not the House of Curios either, chances are the house didn't spawn this time. This means its time to make a new game and try again. You can quicken your searches by avoiding uncovering all four locations every time this way. It may be worth uncovering all four locations a couple time to begin with however, just to get a feel for the spawn locations so you can hit them again quickly without getting lost.
"Impressive! You braved the khazra to come see my wares?"— Adenah the Curio Vendor
Once you've found her house, breathe a sigh of relief, because its certainly not an easy find, unless you're lucky. Either way, enter the house and you will be able to brwose from her discounted wares, which include a few random weapons, a large range of armors, dyes and repair services. Don't forget to check the Old Keepsake Box that drops the Adenah's Jottings journal for the A Quick Study achievement.
