Diablo 2: Resurrected’s “Tools of the Trade” quest has you seeking out the The Smith in the Monastery Barracks. Diablo 2’s map in every area (though not the connections between Diablo 2 maps) is different during every play session, which makes finding pretty much anything difficult.

In this Diablo 2: Resurrected guide, we’ll tell you how to reach the Barracks in the Monastery to find the Horadic Malus as part of the “Tools of the Trade” quest.

The Smith > Barracks map location

You’ll find the Smith — and the Horadic Malus he holds — in the Barracks area of the Monastery.

Exit the Rogue Encampment and:

  1. Pass through the Blood Moor. You’ll must have completed the “Den of Evil” quest before you can progress.
  2. Pass through the Cold Plains, Stony Fields, Underground Passage, Dark Wood, Black Marsh, and Tamoe Highland on your way to the Monastery. Make sure to use the Waypoint in the Black Marsh.
  3. In the Monastery, pass through the Monastery Gate and Outer Cloister to reach the Barracks.

You’ll find The Smith there. Defeat him to claim the Horadic Malus to complete “Tools of the Trade.”
