Diablo® III

Battlefield Reports Unobtainable

During Act III there are many Dead Guards, Dead Soldiers, and Guards of the Keep to loot/talk to respectively. After completing Normal and Nightmare mode, with multiple farming runs in both, I have not been able to find the Quest Lore Book Battlefield Reports in any of them. I can find the NPC "Guard of the Keep" on the Battlefields and in other places, but his talk option is shaded out and bringing him around the field usually leads to his death, an unlootable corpse, or just does nothing. He does not interact with any events or people. If he, or this method in general, is not the way to find that Lore Book then please let us know as there are multiple people on multiple forums asking how to find this thing. Please and thank you.

I've ran over 10 times act 3 over the course of my playtime and also tried specifically the 1st quests looking for this lorebook today, but was unable to find it.

I am also unable to obtain battlefield reports. And my wife cannot either.

We are all the way to inferno and have scoured act 3 in normal nightmare and hell.

I have the very same problem to find this item. It's the only lore book from the Act 3 missing in my collection. I run through the Act 3 maps like 20 times but so far without any luck.

Considering the fact that I've visited every location several times and had no trouble with other books in the Act 3, I would rather think the Battlefield Reports book is bugged.

i have a theory but no one has been able to confirm it, he always dies on mine -_-;;;;; theres a NPC thats "GUard of the Keep" and he has a quest over his head you talk to him he says "ill follow you" so he does but he dies fast as hell but i have walked him into the trenches, back to keep and one last spot i have idea of is to take him to where tyrael is, he might thank you and join the other 3 soldiors shooting bows, and dropping the report he has if even. so this is a theory but please confirm

I can't find that book too, but! if you think a little bit... this is part of the achievment for "ennemy" books, not allies. So it must drop on ennemies, not on dead guards or stuff like that.

I can confirm that this doesn't work. I left the gaurd standing until I had killed everything, then took him to Tyrael and the others, but nothing. He just kept fighting with me, until he died, no thank you, nothin :)

Maybe you have to take him back to the Bastion Keep to one of the NPC hanging around there ?

I've done everything you can think of with all the guards in Act 3 nothing works they dont follow you outside of the portals and they don't talk to anyone else or drop anything anywhere.
