At the end of Act II, you will find yourself entering the Lost City zone and starting the quest Tainted Sun. To complete this quest, you need to travel to Claw Viper Temple and end the curse that enveloped the land in darkness. Drognan in Lut Gholein will tell you that the Claw Viper clan caused the curse and that you must go to the temple to end it. By the end of this guide, you will learn where Claw Viper Temple is located in Diablo 2: Resurrected.
Where is the Claw Viper Temple Located in Diablo 2: Resurrected
You can find Claw Viper Temple by traveling through the Lost City zone into the Valley of Snakes. There are no specific hints or waypoints that will lead you to the Valley of Snakes. However, teleporting to the Lost City is a good starting point.
Once you are in the Lost City, make your way to the edge of the zone, and move along it until you find the entrance to the Valley of Snakes. The zone is randomized for each player, so the entrance will not be in the exact same spot for everyone. Along the edge of Lost City, you will find a small path leading outwards and upon entering it, you will be prompted with an “Entering The Valley of Snakes” message.
When you enter the Valley of Snakes, move straight forward towards the center of the area until you find the Claw Viper Temple. The exact location of the temple will depend on how you enter the Valley of Snakes through Lost City. However, you should not have to travel far from the entrance to reach the temple.
Within the second level of the Claw Viper Temple, you will find the Tainted Sun Altar. Destroying the altar will end the curse and drop the Amulet of the Viper. The amulet is a key quest item for completing the Horadric Staff quest. Make sure you pick this up since you will need it later!
