There are many side quest tasks that you can choose to complete in Backwater, a harbor town in the Forsaken Coast area of Hawezar, and Brought to Heel is one of them.

That said, the red mushroom might not give you any power-enhancing reward, but completing Brought to Heel gives you some Hawezar renown. This item helps you get more health potions easily and quickly. Although this quest usually comes later in Diablo 4, if you want to complete this quest early, come to the Backwater at the start of Diablo 4 and grab Wild Red mushrooms to complete the Brought to Heel task.

Where To Find Red Mushroom In Diablo 4?

To get the red mushroom, go into east Hawezar to the Forsaken Coast. Once in there, try to find where Red Mushroom is as it is hard to miss once you’ve reached the coast. Once you see it, grab it. But, this is easier said than done, as you’ll find a huge blue circle marking that area, confusing you about where to find this mushroom. For that very reason, I have compiled a walkthrough to make your life easy.

Here is the sequence of steps that I took while doing this quest:

You can start this quest by talking to Lumir about this mushroom.

  1. He’s standing right next to the Backwater at the top right corner, a town in the Hawezar region of Sanctuary.
  2. This area is a northern subregion, which is also called the Forsaken Coast.
  3. After talking to him, move towards the area called Exile’s Heap.
  4. This is above the town where Lumir lives.
  5. If you don’t understand this location on the map, simply head over to the town above the Lumir area.
  6. Here, you’ll find a huge blue circle, and once in it, go to the top of the region.
  7. If you can’t detect where Wild Red Mushrooms are, look for a small pool of water in the surroundings.
  8. There will be a dead body lying next to the pool.
  9. So, if you can’t find the pool, look for the dead body.
  10. These red mushrooms in Diablo 4 will be immediately to the right of it.
  11. You can’t collect them while being on the mount.
  12. So, you need to get off your horse and look for the mushrooms

Remember that you might have to kill a few enemies in your quest to find this fungus.

I have also compiled a list of rewards that you will receive when you complete the quest:

  • Rare Gear
  • XP
  • Gold
  • 20 Hawezar Renown points to gain extra healing potions

Note: You can also get your hands on more Renown points by finding altars of Lilith and completing side dungeons.

Brought to Heel is a captivating side quest that merges exploration, combat, and intrigue as players venture through the misty harbor town of Backwater, located on the Forsaken Coast of Hawezar. Despite the seemingly mundane task of collecting a red mushroom, this particular quest underscores Diablo’s classic charm— which beautifully blends simple fetch quests with complex strategies and combat sequences.

With this, I must conclude my Brought to Heel side quest guide to an end. While solving the Brought to Heel mission is surely interesting, reading Diablo 4: How To Get Grandfather Sword, Black River, Damage Buckets, and Fractured Peaks: All Side Quest Locations will also be a knowledgeable experience for you as well. So don’t miss out on reading these as well.
