The Wandering Tinker (real name Rina) is a vendor found in the Tinker's Hovel.
Rina resided in the Fields of Misery in Khanduras. Due to a threat from monsters, surrounding farmers left the area, but she and her husband stayed put. One night, they heard the beasts drawing closer. Her husband left to investigate, and never returned. Rina was left alone with the things she and her husband had made, hoping that they would be of more use to someone else. That hope was fulfilled, and she sold items to the Nephalem.
The Wandering Tinker appears as an NPC in the game Diablo III. She can be found in Act 1 (Diablo III) of the game inside the Tinker's Hovel, accessible from the Sheltered Cottage sub-zone of the Fields of Misery. She sells the following items:
- Ascended Armor
- Ascended Faulds
- Ascended Gauntlets
- Rakkisgard Leg Plates
- Stalwart Guardian
Spawning the Wandering TinkerEdit
The Sheltered Cottage sub-zone of the Fields of Misery is always present, but will not always have the Tinker's Hovel open. The Tinker's Hovel shares its entrance with the Pillaged Home.
Start a game at the beginning of the "Sword of the Stranger" quest line and go to the Cemetery of the Forsaken Waypoint. Exit the cemetery through the northern gate and follow the terrain edge on the right hand side. Just after the path upwards to The Old Mill will be the Sheltered Cottage sub-zone. If the door to the house is not open, go and find the Khazra Den to activate the Checkpoint, then leave and re-enter the game. Repeat as often as required.

- "These are dark times, my friend. I thought for a moment you were one of those dreadful goatmen. Since you're not, would you like to buy something?"
