Diablo 4 Player Gets Stuck at Blacksmith’s


  • A player in Diablo 4 encountered a glitch that trapped them inside the Blacksmith’s building, and this bug has been reported by several other players.
  • Players have found some workarounds to fix this problem, such as speaking to the blacksmith again, teleporting to a waypoint, using the mount, or exiting the game and re-entering.
  • While players are frustrated with the presence of this glitch, they hope Blizzard will address and fix it soon, as the game has been out for a while now.

A Diablo 4 player experienced a peculiar glitch that trapped them inside the Blacksmith’s building. They weren’t the only one to encounter this bug, but there are several ways to easily fix this particular problem in Diablo 4.

It has been nearly two months since Diablo 4 was released. Though there have been plenty of glitches, bugs, and exploits in the game in that time, Diablo 4 has done a pretty good job of fixing them, ensuring players have a smooth experience in Sanctuary.

However, one player recently encountered a bizarre glitch that trapped them in the blacksmith’s room. Redditor and Diablo 4 fan Bledolikiq shared a short video of their Druid at the blacksmith in Kyovashad. They briefly interact with the Diablo 4 blacksmith as usual, but after the character pane is closed, the camera stays locked in place. Running to either of the exits of the building doesn’t seem to make the camera budge, trapping them inside the building.

According to the comments, several other players have had this problem recently, with one even sharing YouTube video proof of the glitch after the beginning of Diablo 4 Season 1. Others reported similar issues with quest givers as well. These players shared a few workarounds that should help players get past this problem if they get stuck in the blacksmith in Diablo 4:

  • Speak to the blacksmith or NPC again.
  • Teleport to a waypoint, including the default town portal to Kyovashad.
  • If unlocked, use the mount.
  • Back out to the main menu or exit the game entirely, then re-enter.

Players were annoyed at the presence of this glitch. Given the game has been out for a bit now, they don’t understand how Diablo 4 still has these bugs popping up. Others made light of the situation, joking that the player unwittingly agreed to become an apprentice blacksmith, and that they were stuck there forever. Either way, this particular bug is pretty harmless, and players can hopefully expect Blizzard to fix it sooner rather than later.

Diablo 4’s Season of the Malignant is live now. Players can encounter and defeat corrupted enemies to earn Malignant Heart drops, which can be used like gems in special Infested jewelry sockets. This new gimmick comes alongside Diablo 4’s first Battle Pass that players can progress by playing on seasonal characters. Players aren’t happy with all the changes being made in the first season of Diablo 4, but hopefully Blizzard can learn from its mistakes and continue improving the game as it moves past its post-launch hype period.

Diablo 4 is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
