    Diablo 3 Secret Pony Level

    Let’s go in-depth into the Diablo 3 campaign and find out how to access the hilarious Pony Level. We’ll give you detailed voice-over instructions each step of the way, in the videos in this guide, until you know everything to unlock & play it.

    How To Find & Create All the Staff of Herding Items

    STEP 1: This video walkthrough shows you exactly how to find and create ALL of the Staff of Herding, as well as how to unlock the secret pony level in Diablo 3.

    Spoiler alert: This video shows the final boss battle of the game’s last Act.

    First craft the Staff of Herding. Here’s a list of items you need to obtain:

    • Plans for the Staff of Herding — Found in Act 4. It’s a random drop from Izual. Kill Izual for Blacksmith Plans for the Herding Staff (use the last waypoint). Head to The Great Span.
      Shown at 00:51 minutes into the video guide above.
    • Black Mushroom — Found in Act 1. The Black Mushroom is located in a patch of mushrooms in Cathedral level 1 (second waypoint).
      Shown at 1:57 minutes into the video guide above.
    • Leoric’s Shinbone — Found in Act 1. Leoric’s Shinbone is located at random in the fireplace (found by walking right when you enter) in Leoric’s Manor (use Leoric’s Manor waypoint).
      Shown at 2:29 minutes into the video guide above.
    • Wirt’s Bell — Found in Act 2. Wirt’s Bell costs 100,000 gold in Caldeum’s Bazaar. To purchase it from a vendor, talk to the Squirt Merchant.
      Shown at 3:07 minutes into the video guide above.
    • Liquid Rainbow — Found in Act 2 after you saved an NPC. To get to the Dahlgur Oasis use the Path of the Oasis waypoint. The Rare Merchant is located at the bottom of the map. Find the Mysterious Chest in the Mysterious Cave (a random dungeon).
      Shown at 3:24 minutes into the video guide above.
    • Gibbering Gemstone — Found in Act 3 on the quest where you destroy the ballistae. Gibbering Gemstone drops from Chiltara, a RARE mob in the Caverns of Frost level 2. If you see Ice Cave Falls (AKA ice caverns) as a dungeon then you need to reload the game. Load using The Bridge of Korsikk waypoint.
      Shown at 4:34 minutes into the video guide above.

    Craft the Staff of Herding: Then you just need to get the recipe drop, pay your blacksmith 60,000 gold and craft it! (on Normal difficulty mode).

    How to upgrade your Staff of Herding: After you kill Izual in nightmare, before you kill Diablo, go to town and buy the nightmare Staff of Herding plans for 1 gold (vendor located by the healer/mercenaries)

    Note: All these items (besides Wirt’s Bell) are rare or random spawn or even both. So, you may have to do multiple run throughs.
    To enable it on higher difficulties you need to find the recipe on that level and pay the blacksmith again. In total you need:
    Normal – 150,000 gold.
    Nightmare – 200,000 gold.
    Hell – 500,000 gold.
    Inferno – 1 million gold.

      I tried killing Izual 2 times in Normal but got nothing, so I went for nightmare mode and 1 time i had the plan. However, went I went to the blacksmith actually knows the plan already. So I guess I had it already previously but just did not notice.  By the way the mushroom i got at first time going to the cathedral both 2 of my characters. The rainbow I was lucky I had it also first time in oasis for my higher character same as the glimmering stone, the shinbone I tried 3 times. Now I just have to farm my 100K for the wirts bell since I do not have gold at the moment.

      you have to go buy the upgraded plans after defeating izual  on nightmare or hell town teleport and go buy the nightmarish or hellish staff of hearding plans from the merchant by the healer. Also note it’s 50,000 gold for normal not 150,000 gold.
