  3. Select the ‘Follow’ emote.

    The ‘Follow’ emote should already be an option by default, unless you’ve made changes yourself. If you choose to customize your Emote Wheel, you can add the emote back in.use the follow emote to complete pilgrim's footsteps in diablo 4

After you’ve made the proper sign, a chest will appear nearby containing some loot and elixirs. This is in addition to gold and experience for completing the quest, though the amount varies based on your level.
