The Ancient Device is a rare random event in the Desolate Sands in Act II with 10 unique outcomes. All outcomes are not of equal chance, and will require multiple tries to encounter all of them.

The achievement Wheel of Misfortune requires obtaining all 10 outcomes.


  • Explore Desolate Sands.
  • Look for the Ancient Device. The device only spawns in one of two large areas. If the area contains something large (such as a spiral chasm, a smooth circle, or large skulls), check the other area or restart the game.
