Halls of Agony 3 Waypoint? Keep Walkin'...

You heard me.

If you're playing or even replaying the Act 1 quest "The Imprisoned Angel," don't bother looking for the Halls of Agony Level 3 waypoint.

Why? Because you have to reactivate it every time you restart the quest. So if you plan on farming the Butcher, you have to use the HoA Level 2 waypoint instead.

If the Level 3 waypoint worked so that it was still activated every time you replayed that quest...boy life would be pretty sweet then, I guess.

Yeah I can't imagine it was meant to be unavailable for use every time you replay that quest. What's the point of it otherwise?

This is not universally true.

Trying to farm butcher on Inferno, I am one who is unable to keep the waypoint. One of my buddies, however, does have it. He hosts the game, jumps down to agony level 3, and I take his banner.

I have no idea why this is the case.

Does anyone else have an idea of why this is? Every other end of act boss has a waypoint right next to them that works. It seems that the butchers doesn't work for some people though. An explanation would be great!

they don't want people to farm butcher... farming bosses means easy good gear drops... and it's not the way the game is intended to... to get good gear you have to play the AH or the coming soon RMAH... have fun...


Let's try not to flood a serious topic with ad verbatim trolling. Every other end of act boss has a waypoint right at the end. Obviously this is a bug and I would love to know if anyone has a work around.

I think you forgot... you are on the official Diablo 3 forum. :P

And I'm in the same boat. I will get the wp in one game, and not have it in the next.

Is a rather annoying issue that needs looking into.

Does he complete the run with you?

The reason this happens is because of how the chapters work. When you restart a chapter, only the specific points Bliz predetermined that you have already found will be active at the chapter breaks. If it is a waypoint you find as you progress, it will be reset every time you replay that chapter.

Its the same reason you can jump straight to Diablo but not to the way point just after Izual.

Whatever the reason, needs looking into. Waypoints are there to be had for a reason.

You go out to a pass, into the jail where you fought the Warden, and then down to level 3.

1.04 and still no fix.... anyone?

whats the big deal? you are supposed to farm through the warden on to the hoa 3..

if not you may as well just do a farm run without bothering to do warden and butcher

eg: a1 fast run
find watchtower, no watch tower = remake

1) leoric courtyard
2) festering woods
3) scout for cave of moon. you should have 5 stacks by now. if not just hope you don't encounter a gob before the elite packs , enter cave of mo
4) watch tower
5) cemetary, 1 elite each, do jar of souls or matriach bones
remake for fast runs. otherwise proceed on to
hall of agony 1->butcher clearing everything.

Lol why the hell would you want to go straight to the butcher? Pointless.
