Every class in Diablo 4 has a specific quest that is only related to them. If you took part in the beta as a Sorcerer or Necromancer, then you got to experience your class-specific quest already. However, some of these quests were locked since they were in other regions outside of Fractured Peaks.

One of those is the Barbarian quest, which Diablo 4 players want to complete as quickly as possible so they can progress in their journey in Sanctuary.

When you first start out in Diablo 4, the Barbarian quest, or any class-specific one, will not be available to you. As such, some players wonder if they need to do anything on their part in order to trigger it.

Starting the Barbarian quest in Diablo 4

For starters, you cannot begin the Barbarian quest until you reach level 15 on your character. You should be able to get this done fairly quickly if you are taking on main story missions, completing dungeons or Strongholds, or simply exploring the map.

Once you hit level 15, you will see a Priority Quest (light blue markers) appear on your quest list and on your map. The location of this marker is in the Dry Steppes region, which is found directly west of Fractured Peaks. Dry Steppes is home to the Oxen Tribe, which is made up of Barbarians. More specifically, you will need to travel to the capital of Dry Steppes, Ked Bardu. You can see exactly where that city is on the map in the screenshot below.

After reaching Ked Bardu, you need to find the Blacksmith named Gerti. She will be standing next to an anvil right below the Waypoint in Ked Bardu. Once you are done speaking to Gerti, you will learn that in order to be admitted into the Oxen Tribe, you need to show your worth. This will lead you on a quest to find Katra, who will explain what you need to do to be accepted into the tribe’s ranks.

And that’s how you start the Barbarian quest in Diablo 4. We won’t spoil the rest of the quest for you, but it’s extremely straightforward and not too challenging. Once the quest is complete, you will be awarded with a crest of the Oxen Tribe (an amulet).
