Act III: The Infernal Gate

The Golden Bird The Golden Bird

Alkor asks who has not dreamt of immortality. One man is rumored to have done more than merely dream. Find the Golden Bird of Ku Y'leh and you might find the secret to everlasting life.

Given by finding a Jade Figurine.

Tip: Look for a Unique Monster

Blade of the Old Religion Blade of the Old Religion

Hratli tells you he has placed an enchantment upon the dockside in order to keep the demons at bay. But lately, the enchantment seems to be weakening. If memory serves Hratli correctly, there is a holy Skatsimi blade that could revitalize the enchantment. The blade is called Gidbinn. Find it, and our sanctuary here will remain safe.

Given after completing the Golden Bird Quest or by entering the Flayer Jungle.

Tip: Find the Pygmy Village in the Flayer Jungle.

Khalim's Will Khalim's Will

Cain tells you to never forget that your ultimate purpose here in Kurast is to destroy Mephisto. The ancient Horadrim imprisoned the Lord of Hatred inside the Guardian Tower that is located within the Temple City of Travincal.

The only way to gain entry to Mephisto's prison is to destroy the artifact known as the Compelling Orb. Mephisto used this device to control the Zakarum Priests and their followers. The Orb can only be destroyed with an ancient flail imbued with the spirit of the one incorruptible priest.

Your task is to collect the scattered relics of Khalim - his Heart, his Brain, and his Eye. Then, using the Horadric Cube, transmute Khalim's Flail with his relics. Once this is accomplished, you must destroy the Compelling Orb with Khalim's Will to open the way into the corrupt sanctum of Mephisto.

Given by Cain after completing the Golden Bird quest or by entering the Great Marsh.

Tip: The Eye is in Spider Cavern. The Heart is in the Sewers. The Brain is in Flayer Dungeon. The Flail is dropped by one of the High Council members.

Lam Esen's Tome Lam Esen's Tome

Alkor tells you there is a very special book you must find for him. It was written long ago by a sage known as Lam Esen, who studied Skatsimi magic and the effects of the Prime Evils on the mortal world. The Black Book was lost when the Children of Zakarum took over this land. Now, you must reclaim it without delay! Its knowledge may aid us in this dark time ahead.

Given by Alkor after completion of the Blade of the Old Religion. You must also have entered the Kurast Bazaar before the quest will trigger.

Tip: The Tome is always in the Ruined Temple.

The Blackened Temple The Blackened Temple

Ormus tells you that you have done well. Your courage and valor are an inspiration. But now the time has come to face those responsible for the evil that has stifled the land. You must destroy the High Council of Zakarum! Long ago, these elders were charged with the stewardship of Mephisto, the Lord of Hatred, who was imprisoned within the Guardian Tower. Through the generations, these pious men slowly fell more and more under the sway of Mephisto's malevolent power and the Council became an evil mockery of its former glory.

Given by Ormus after completing the Lam Esen's Tome Quest or by entering the Kurast Causeway.

Tip: Search Travincal.

The Guardian The Guardian

Ormus tells you that Diablo and Baal have surely found the Temple City by now. They seek to free their brother, Mephisto, who was imprisoned by the Horadrim in the Temple's Guardian Tower. You must reach him before his brothers do and prevent them from releasing Hatred upon the world.

Given by Ormus after smashing the Compelling Orb.

Tip: Search the Durance of Hate in Travincal.
