It is said that when the world was very young the tribes of the Northern
Steppes were given a sacred charge. Somewhere deep within the great mountain,
Arreat, lies a source of great power, crucial to the well being of all
humanity. The tribes act as guardians of this artifact, and through this
sacred duty, have shaped their way of life in observance of this power.
In Nightmare and Hell Difficulty, Act V becomes inhabited with the stragglers
of previous demon armies which you have fought in the past. The types
of enemies that appear are random. They are also more powerful than in
previous Acts. By the inclusion of these "guest monsters" Act
V in Nightmare and Hell truly becomes an amalgam of all of the Acts in
the game, and the ultimate challenge to Diablo II players.
