How to Complete Diablo 4’s Season of the Construct Seasonal Journey

It's a long road, but at least you can choose which path to take.

Diablo 4 Season of the Construct’s “Journey” may not offer the fancy cosmetic mount rewards of Season of Blood, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth the grind. Completing it all gets you Favor, for leveling your Battle Pass, as well as new titles, Legendary Aspects, and a new Emblem for your profile.

How to Complete Season of the Construct in Diablo 4

Below, I’ve outlined the objectives needed to complete each Chapter, with the ones I suggest “skipping” marked with an asterisk. As to why I suggest not worrying about some objectives – it’s either because the grind is too long to bother, or the other objectives are.. objectively easier.

Chapter 1 – Complete 6 of 8 Objectives

  • Complete 1 Dungeon in Kehjistan
  • Complete 2 World Events
  • Defeat 5 Elite Monsters
  • Collect 15 Lifesbane in Kehjistan*
  • Salvage 10 Magic Items at the Blacksmith
  • Defeat 100 Constructs*
  • Equip 1 Governing Stone to your Construct
  • Upgrade your Potion to Tiny at the Alchemist

This Chapter is quite simple – you’d basically have to try not to have this done by the time you’re level 10 or so. Just breeze through the opening segment of the Seasonal campaign and be sure to scoop up some herbs for your potion upgrade along the way.

Chapter 2 – Complete 6 of 8 Objectives

  • Complete 4 Cellars*
  • Open a Silent Chest using a Whispering Key purchased from the Purveyor of Curiosities*
  • Clear 1 Stronghold
  • Upgrade your Potion to Minor at the Alchemist
  • Unlock 6 Aspects in the Codex of Power by completing Dungeons
  • Acquire 4 Governing Stones
  • Craft 1 Uncertain Seneschal Stone Cache at the Jeweler
  • Complete 3 World Events with Mastery

Cellars are for the birds, so we’re skipping them. Completing World Events with Mastery means getting the “bonus” objective done, which also grants increased rewards like more herbs for the Alchemist.

Chapter 3 – Complete 9 of 11 Objectives

  • Unlock 13 Aspects in the Codex of Power by completing Dungeons*
  • Clear 3 Strongholds
  • Defeat Malphas
  • Defeat 50 Elite Constructs
  • Defeat 9 Vault Heralds, summoned at Braziers
  • Acquire 14 Tuning Stones
  • Upgrade your Potion to Light at the Alchemist
  • Acquire Zoltun’s Warding by spending a Pearl of Warding at the Statue of Zoltun at the start of any Vault
  • Reach Level 35
  • Defeat 100 Monsters while Bloodmarked in PvP zones*
  • Obtain 10 Caches from the Tree of Whispers by completing bounties*

Compared to the others on this list, Tree of Whispers caches are a bit grindy, so we’re skipping those. Also, nobody wants to PvP, so I’m pretty much not suggesting those by default.

Chapter 4 – Complete 9 of 11 Objectives

  • Purify 1,000 Seeds of Hatred in Hostile Areas at an Altar of Extraction*
  • Complete 1 Legion Event
  • Defeat Echo of Varshan in World Tier 3
  • Obtain 20 Caches from the Tree of Whispers*
  • Defeat 1 World Boss
  • Complete 10 Vaults
  • Defeat 30 Vault Heralds
  • Complete 1 Nightmare Dungeon
  • Craft a Vault Sigil at the Occultist
  • Reach Level 55

By the time you reach World Tier 3, you’re going to want to be spamming Nightmare Vaults for the obscene amount of Legendaries and experience they grant, so those should be pretty well covered. The 20 caches from the Tree of Whispers in insanely time-consuming, so you’re better off focusing your effort elsewhere.

Chapter 5 – Complete 9 of 11 Objectives

  • Equip Sacred Legendary items in every slot
  • Open Tortured Gifts of 3 different types during Helltide
  • Defeat Helltide 6 Commanders during Helltide
  • Defeat 100 Champion Monsters
  • Complete 20 Nightmare Vaults
  • Unlock 30 Wardwoven Chests by preserving Zoltun’s Warding throughout a Vault
  • Craft 50 Uncertain Seneschal Stone Caches at the Jeweler*
  • Advance 1 Tuning Stone to Rank 10
  • Complete 1 Tier 21 or higher Nightmare Dungeon
  • Defeat Grigoire, the Galvanic Saint in World Tier 4
  • Find all of Zoltun Kulle’s Journal entries by opening Wardwoven Chests*

The Zoltun Kulle entries are completely RNG-based, so your mileage may vary on getting that done quickly. Sacred Legendaries are pretty easy to come by if you run Vaults, so we’re going to kill several birds with one stone by spamming those some more throughout this section, opening Wardwoven chests while we do.

Chapter 6 – Complete 8 of 10 Objectives

  • Equip Ancestral Legendary items in every slot
  • Acquire 6,666 Aberrant Cinders during Helltide*
  • Defeat The Beast in Ice in World Tier 4
  • Defeat Lord Zir in World Tier 4
  • Defeat Echo of Malphas in World Tier 4
  • Unlock 50 Wardwoven Chests
  • Acquire all 12 Governing Stones
  • Acquire 25 Tuning Stones

Since Tuning Stones are granted from the overworld Brazier event, there’s a chance you won’t have found 25 by the time you get to this part of your journey. Once you level a stone all the way, it won’t drop anymore, so the others start coming pretty hot and heavy after that. The rest of this segment is cleaning up endgame bosses, which you can check on how to summon by clicking their name above.

Chapter 7 – Complete 9 of 11 Objectives

  • Defeat Echo of Duriel in World Tier 4
  • Equip at least 8 Ancestral Unique items simultaneously
  • Improve 5 Paragon Glyphs to Rank 15 by completing Nightmare Dungeons
  • Equip 4 different types of Legendary Tuning Stones that are Rank 10 to your Construct
  • Defeat Echo of Lilith in World Tier 4*
  • Defeat the Seething Abomination while Bloodmarked in Hostile Areas*
  • Complete 1 Tier 90 Nightmare Vault
  • Open 10 Tortured Gifts during a single Helltide in World Tier 4
  • Defeat The Wandering Death x2 in World Tier 4
  • Defeat Avarice the Gold Cursed x2 in World Tier 4
  • Defeat Ashava the Pestilent x2 in World Tier 4

This segment is the real grind. Fighting every World Boss twice each, leveling 5 Paragon Glyphs (that you may not even need or want) to 15 – there’s just a lot of slog. If you value your sanity, you can forget doing Echo of Lilith unless you’re strong enough to absolutely nuke her. Once you’re geared to the teeth and can trounce level 90 Nightmare Vaults like nobody’s business, the rest of this list is just praying for Uniques and running a very efficient Helltide. Good luck.
