Are you wondering how to give thanks at the shrine in Diablo 4 Season 1 and complete the Traveler’s Prayer quest? The latest instalment in Blizzard’s demon-slaying RPG series isn’t short on cryptic notes that kick off side quests, and the Traveler’s Prayer side quest is another great example.

Putting your deduction skills to the test, the Traveler’s Prayer quest will take you to a shrine where you’re tasked with giving thanks. If you’ve tried everything to show your appreciation and still can’t figure out what’s needed, we’re to help with a guide to how to give thanks at the shrine in the Diablo 4 Traveler’s Prayer side quest.

More than a couple of early-game parts like this might have you scratching your head, like the Secret of the Springs side quest, or even your Holy Cedar Tablet choice. Not to worry, we have guides for both of those and more as well. If you’re itching to try the new season, here’s how to skip the campaign in Diablo 4. This will let you quickstart your Diablo 4 Season Journey.

How to give thanks at the shrine in the Diablo 4 Traveler’s Prayer quest in Season 1

After picking up the Traveler’s Prayer side quest at The Hog’s Head, run to the marker on your map just north of Yelesna. Here, you’ll find a shrine. You’ll need to use the Thanks emote to give thanks at the shrine in Diablo 4.

How to give thanks at the shrine in Diablo 4: Thanks on Emote Wheel in Diablo 4 for Traveller's Prayer quest

To do this, tap E on your keyboard to bring up the Emote Wheel or the up button on your D-pad if you’re on controller. If thanks isn’t among the options available on any of the wheel layouts, tap the Customize button below. Select Thanks in the list of emotes, then assign it to a slice of the wheel below. Save your changes.

Bring up the Emote Wheel and select Thanks. Doing so will complete the Diablo 4 Traveler’s Pray and reveal a hidden chest. You’re bound to get some good stuff out of this chest, but if you find some junk in here too, you can also use the salvage gear to turn a little extra profit.

And that’s it – a quick and easy way to make money. Be sure to keep an eye out for similar quests that utilise emotes on your explorations, especially during the early game as you navigate around locations like the Fractured Peaks. With any luck, you’ll be a master of deduction soon enough. If you’re looking for a challenge, step up your build with some fresh Diablo 4 Malignant Hearts. Then use them to challenge the new Season 1 boss with our Diablo 4 Invoker of Varshan guide.
