Quests


QUESTS

 


In Diablo, the quests are a series of missions (fewer in multi-player) on which the character is sent, and which offer advantages when completed.
Not all of them need to be completed, but all add background detail and most give valuable rewards.

 

Some quests appear only in single player and those that appear in multiplayer are simplified versions of the single player ones. Quests that appear in single player alternate between different games to make for better replayability. They are sorted into groups from which only some quests are given in a game.

Initiation: (Griswold)

"Greetings! It's always a pleasure to see one of my best customers! I know that you have been venturing deeper into the Labyrinth, and there is a story I was told that you may find worth the time to listen to...
One of the men who returned from the Labyrinth told me about a mystic anvil that he came across during his escape. His description reminded me of legends I had heard in my youth about the Burning Hellforge where powerful weapons of magic are crafted. The legend had it that deep within the Hellforge rested the Anvil of Fury! This anvil contained within it the very essence of the demonic underworld...
It is said that any weapon crafted upon the burning Anvil is imbued with great power. If this anvil is indeed the Anvil of Fury, I may be able to make you a weapon capable of defeating even the darkest Lord of Hell! Find the Anvil for me, and I'll get to work!"

 

Deckard Cain:

"Griswold speaks of the Anvil of Fury - a legendary artefact long searched for, but never found. Crafted from the metallic bones of the razor pit demons, the Anvil of Fury was smelt around the skulls of the five most powerful Magi of the underworld. Carved with runes of power and chaos, any weapon or armor forged upon this anvil will be immersed into the realm of chaos, imbedding it with magical properties. It is said that the unpredictable nature of chaos makes it difficult to know what the outcome of this smithing will be..."

 

Griswold:

"Nothing yet, eh? Well, keep searching. A weapon forged upon the Anvil could be your best hope, and I am sure that I can make you one of the legendary proportions."

 

Ogden:

"Don't you think that Griswold would be a better person to ask about this? He's quite handy, you know."

 

Pepin:

"If you had been looking for information on the Pestle of Curing or the Silver Chalice of Purification, I could have assisted you, my friend. However, in this matter, you would be better served to speak to either Griswold or Cain."

 

Gillian:

"Griswold's father used to tell some of us when we were growing up about a giant anvil that was used to make mighty weapons. He said that when a hammer was struck upon this anvil, the ground would shake with a great fury. Whenever the Earth moves, I always remember that story..."

 

Farnham:

"Griswold can't sell his anvil. What will he do then? And I'd be angry too if someone took my anvil!"

 

Wirt:

"If you were to find this artefact for Griswold, it could put a serious damper on my business here. Awwww, you'll never find it."

 

Adria:

"There are many artefacts within the Labyrinth that hold powers beyond the comprehension of mortals. Some of these hold fantastic power that can be used by either the Light or the Darkness. Securing the Anvil from below could shift the course of the Sin War towards the Light."

 

Character:

"I need to get this to Griswold."

Warrior, Rogue, Sorcerer

 

Completion: (Griswold)

"I can hardly believe it! This is the Anvil of Fury - Good work, my friend. Now we'll show those bastards that there are no weapons in Hell more deadly than those made by men! Take this and may Light protect you."

Quest Specific Items

Staff of Lazarus (SP only)

Reward

Access to level 16

 

Description

 

Single-Player

This quest involves the treachery of a former Archbishop. It is initiated by Deckard Cain after the Staff of Lazarus is retrieved from level fifteen. He will reveal that Archbishop Lazarus has turned to evil. A "red town portal" will now open next to the pentagram on level fifteen. This leads to the Unholy Altar. Inside, there are two Books of Vileness on stands adjacent to circles on the floor. Reading each one will teleport the hero into a room with several Hellspawn, a type of Succubus demon. After both Books of Vileness have been read, a new circle will appear where the hero entered the Unholy Altar. Using this will teleport the hero to Lazarus immediately following a cutscene. Lazarus will declare that the hero is too late and will set off a trap, causing several more Hellspawn and an Advocate to enter the room. Lazarus also has two Succubus bodyguards: Red Vex and Blackjade. The fallen clergyman himself is similar to an Advocate, but more powerful. Defeating him completes the quest, allowing access to level sixteen.

 

Multi-Player

This Diablo Quest is one of the four Diablo Quests that appears in Multiplayer mode. Instead of having to retrieve the Staff of Lazarus, the quest is initiated by Deckard Cain anytime after first reaching level fourteen. Lazarus is on level fifteen itself. He is in a room with the Unholy Altar (the altar itself with the sacrificed child, not the mini-level) and several other enemies (Succubi and Mages). Like in single player, Red Vex and Blackjade are guarding him, but this time he also has Bloodlust lurking somewhere nearby. Defeating Lazarus allows the player to continue to level sixteen.

NPC Quotes

(Note: click on any quote to listen to it)

 

Initiation: (Deckard Cain)

"This does not bode well, for it confirms my darkest fears. While I did not allow myself to believe the Ancient Legends, I cannot deny them now. Perhaps the time has come to reveal who I am.
My true name is Deckard Cain the Elder, and I am the last descendant of an Ancient Brotherhood that was dedicated to safeguarding the secrets of a timeless Evil. An Evil that quite obviously has now been released.
The Archbishop Lazarus, once King Leoric's most trusted advisor, led a party of simple townsfolk into the Labyrinth to find the King's missing son, Albrecht. Quite some time passed before they returned, and only a few of them escaped with their lives.
Curse me for a fool! I should have suspected his veiled treachery then. It must have been Lazarus himself who kidnapped Albrecht and has since hidden him within the Labyrinth. I do not understand why the Archbishop turned to the Darkness, or what his interest is in the child. Unless he means to sacrifice him to his Dark Masters!
That must be what he has planned! The survivors of his 'rescue party' say that Lazarus was last seen running into the deepest bowels of the Labyrinth. You must hurry and save the Prince from the Sacrificial Blade of this demented fiend!"

 

Griswold:

"I was there when Lazarus led us into the Labyrinth. He spoke of holy retribution, but when we started fighting those Hellspawn, he did not so much as lift his mace against them. He just ran deeper into the dim, endless chambers that were filled with the Servants of Darkness!"

 

Pepin:

"I was shocked when I heard of what the townspeople were planning to do that night. I thought that of all people, Lazarus would have had more sense than that. He was an Archbishop, and always seemed to care so much for the townsfolk of Tristram. So many were injured, I could not save them all..."

 

Ogden:

"Lazarus was the Archbishop who led many of the townspeople into the Labyrinth. I lost many good friends that day, and Lazarus never returned. I suppose he was killed along with most of the others. If you would do me a favor, Good Master, please do not talk to Farnham about that day."

 

Gillian:

"I remember Lazarus as being a very kind and giving man. He spoke at my mother's funeral, and was supportive of my grandmother and myself in a very troubled time. I pray every night that somehow, he is still alive and safe."

 

Farnham:

"They stab, then bite, then they're all around you. Liar! Liar! They're all dead! Dead! Do you hear me? They just keep falling and falling... their blood spilling out all over the floor... All his fault...(groans)"

 

Wirt:

"Yes, the righteous Lazarus, who was sooo effective against those monsters down there. Didn't help save my leg, did it? Look, I'll give you a free piece of advice. Ask Farnham, he was there."

 

Adria:

"I did not know this Lazarus of whom you speak, but I do sense a great conflict within his being. He poses a great danger, and will stop at nothing to serve the Powers of Darkness which have claimed him as theirs."

 

Deckard Cain:

"You must hurry and rescue Albrecht from the hands of Lazarus. The Prince and the people of this Kingdom are counting on you!"

 

Archbishop Lazarus:

Abandon your foolish quest. All that awaits you is the wrath of my master! You are too late to save the child, now you will join him in hell.”

"Your madness ends here, betrayer!"

Quest Specific Items

Fungal Tome, Black Mushroom, Demon Brain

Reward

“Spectral Elixir” ( gives you a permanent stats boost of 3 to all attributes)



Description

 

This cave quest involves running some errands for Adria and Pepin. It is initiated by presenting the Fungal Tome, an item found on the ninth level of the labyrinth, to Adria the Witch. She will tell the hero to find a Black Mushroom. Also on the ninth floor is a patch of mushrooms. Clicking on the mushroom patch (but only after delivering the Fungal Tome to Adria) will drop the Black Mushroom which can then be conveyed to Adria. Adria will inform the hero that Pepin wants the brain of a demon for an elixir, which she then wants for herself. The next monster killed will yield the necessary brain. When Pepin is given the brain, he rewards the hero with the Spectral Elixir. By now, Adria has completed her recipe and does not need the elixir, so she will tell the hero to keep it. Thus, the Spectral Elixir, which boosts each of the four primary stats, becomes the reward for the quest.

NPC Quotes

(Note: click on any quote to listen to it)

 

Initiation: (Adria)

"What do we have here? Interesting. It looks like a Book of Reagents. Keep your eyes open for a Black Mushroom. It should be fairly large and easy to identify. If you find it, bring it to me, won't you?"

 

Deckard Cain:

"The Witch Adria seeks a Black Mushroom? I know as much about Black Mushrooms as I do about Red Herrings. Perhaps Pepin the Healer could tell you more, but this is something that cannot be found in any of my stories or books."

 

Griswold:

"If Adria doesn't have one of these, you can bet that's a rare thing indeed. I can offer you no more help than that, but it sounds like a... why, a huge, gargantuan, swollen, bloated mushroom! Well, good hunting, I suppose."

 

Gillian:

"I think Ogden might have some mushrooms in the storage cellar. Why don't you ask him?"

 

Farnham:

"Ogden mixes a mean Black Mushroom, but I get sick if I drink that. Listen, listen... Here's the secret - MODERATION IS THE KEY!"

 

Ogden:

"Let me just say this. Both Garda and I would never, ever serve Black Mushrooms to our honored guests. If Adria wants some mushrooms in her stew, then that is her business, but I can't help you find any. Black Mushrooms... DISGUSTING!"

 

Wirt:

"I don't have any mushrooms of ANY size or color for sale. How about something a bit more useful?"

 

Adria, First Return:

"It's a big, Black Mushroom that I need. Now run off and get it for me so that I can use it for a special concoction that I am working on."

 

Adria, Second Return:

"Yes. This will be perfect for a brew that I am creating. By the way, the Healer is looking for the Brain of some Demon or another so he can treat those who have been afflicted by their poisonous venom. I believe that he intends to make an elixir from it. If you can help him find what he needs, please see if you can get a sample of the elixir for me."

 

Pepin, First Return:

"The Witch told me that you were searching for the Brain of a Demon to assist me in creating my elixir. It should be of great value to the many who are injured by those foul beasts, if I can just unlock the secrets I suspect that its alchemy holds. If you can remove the Brain of a Demon when you kill it, I would be grateful if you could bring it to me."

 

Adria, Third Return:

“Why have you brought that here? I have no need for a demons brain at this time. I do need some of the elixir that the healer is working on. He needs that grotesque organ that you are holding, and then bring me the elixir. Simple when you think about it, isn't it?“

 

Pepin, Second Return:

"Excellent, this is just what I had in mind. I was able to finish the elixir without this, but it can't hurt to have this to study. Would you please carry this to the Witch? I believe that she is expecting it."

 

Character:

"Now THAT is a big mushroom."

Warrior, Rogue, Sorcerer

 

Completion: (Adria)

"What? NOW you bring me that elixir from the Healer? (sighs) I was able to finish my brew without it. Why don't you just keep it..." protect you."

Initiation: (Mythical Book)

“Beyond the hall of heroes lies the Chamber of Bone. Eternal death awaits any who would seek to steal the treasures secured within this room, so speaks the Lord of Terror, and so it is written.”

Warrior, Rogue, Sorcerer

 

Deckard Cain:

"A book that speaks of a chamber of human bones? Well, a Chamber of Bone is mentioned in certain archaic writings that I studied in the Libraries of the East. These tomes inferred that when the Lords of the Underworld desired to protect great treasures, they would create domains where those who died in attempt to steal that treasure would be forever bound to defend it. A twisted, but strangely fitting, end?"

 

Griswold:

"I know nothing of this place, but you may try asking Cain. He talks about many things, and it would not surprise me if he had some answers to your question."

 

Pepin:

"This sounds like a very dangerous place. If you venture there, please take great care."

 

Farnham:

"Okay, so listen. There's this Chamber of Wood, see. And his wife, you know - her - tells the tree... cause you gotta wait. Then I says, that might work against him, but if you think I'm gonna pay for this... You... uh... yeah."

 

Ogden:

"I am afraid that I don't know anything about that, Good Master. Cain has many books that may be of some help."

 

Gillian:

"I am afraid that I haven't heard anything about that. Perhaps Cain the storyteller could be of some help."

 

Wirt:

"A vast and mysterious treasure, you say? Maybe I could be interested in picking up a few things from you... Or better yet, don't you need some rare and expensive supplies to get you through this ordeal?"

 

Adria:

"You will become an eternal servant of the Dark Lords should you perish within this cursed domain. Enter the Chamber of Bone at your own peril."

Description

Single-Player & Multi-Player

This final quest in Diablo involves the Dark Lord of Terror himself. This quest is initiated by Deckard Cain anytime after killing Archbishop Lazarus. The pentagram symbol on the fifteenth level of the dungeon turns into a portal to the sixteenth level, the lair of Diablo himself. It is filled with Advocates and Blood Knights, including the unique knight Sir Gorash. There are four corner rooms, only one of which is accessible at first. Pulling the skull lever in that room opens the second, and pulling the lever in the second room opens the third. The third room has two skull levers and both must be pulled to open the fourth and final room. In this room, there is a pentagram on the floor, and it is heavily guarded. A row of Blood Knights forms the outer defense with Advocates behind them. In the very center of the room is an enemy denoted as "The Dark Lord", which is Diablo himself. Surprisingly, he is not a unique monster. He uses the mighty Apocalypse spell, and cannot be Stone Cursed. Defeating him completes the quest, and the game ends in victory.

The symbol of power that you speak of must be a portal in the very heart of the Labyrinth. Know this, my friend - the Evil that you move against is the Dark Lord of Terror. He is known to mortal men as Diablo. It was he who was imprisoned within the labyrinth many centuries ago and I fear that he seeks to once again sow chaos in the Realm of Mankind. You must venture through the portal and destroy Diablo before it is too late!"

Deckard Cain:

"You recite an interesting rhyme written in a style that reminds me of other works. Let me think now - what was it?

Description

 

Lachdanan is a quest that takes place on level fourteen, and begins when the player speaks to the Unique Blood Knight of the same name. He informs the player that he was once one of King Leoric's Royal Guard, but as Diablo corrupted the King, he cursed the knights who were not there to protect him to serve the Lord of Terror in darkness for eternity. All the Royal Guard turned into evil mockeries of their former selves, save one: Lachdanan, who, upon discovering that the others of his order had been corrupted by Diablo, was forced to defend himself against them, and ultimately slew Leoric, who cursed him to eternal damnation with his dying breath. Lachdanan then tells the player of an elixir that could free him from the mad king's curse, located on the fifteenth level of the dungeon (usually in a heavily-guarded pentagram).
Upon returning the elixir to Lachdanan, he thanks the player, who then receives a Unique Full Helm, the Veil of Steel, as Lachdanan disappears.

NPC Quotes

(Note: click on any quote to listen to it)

 

Initiation: (Lachdanan)

"Please, don't kill me, just hear me out. I was once Captain of King Leoric's knights, upholding the laws of this land with justice and honor. Then his dark curse fell upon us for the role we played in his tragic death. As my fellow knights succumbed to their twisted fate, I fled from the King's burial chamber, searching for some way to free myself from the curse. I failed...
I have heard of a Golden Elixir that could lift the curse and allow my soul to rest, but I have been unable to find it. My strength now wanes, and with it, the last of my humanity as well. Please aid me and find the Elixir. I will repay your efforts - I swear upon my honor."

 

Deckard Cain:

"You claim to have spoken with Lachdanan? He was a great hero during his life. Lachdanan was an honorable and just man who served his King faithfully for years. But of course, you already know that. Of those who were caught within the grasp of the King's curse, Lachdanan would be the least likely to submit to the Darkness without a fight, so I suppose that your story could be true. If I were in your place, my friend, I would find a way to release him from his torture."

 

Griswold:

"If it is actually Lachdanan that you have met, then I would advise that you aid him. I dealt with him on several occasions and found him to be honest and loyal in nature. The curse that fell upon the followers of King Leoric would fall especially hard upon him."

 

Pepin:

"A Golden Elixir, you say. I have never concocted a potion of that color before, so I can't tell you how it would effect you if you were to try to drink it. As your healer, I strongly advise that should you find such an Elixir, do as Lachdanan asks and do not try to use it."

 

Ogden:

"You speak of a brave warrior long dead! I'll have no such talk of speaking with departed souls in my inn yard, thank you very much."

 

Gillian:

"I've never heard of a Lachdanan before. I'm sorry, but I don't think that I can be of much help to you."

 

Farnham:

"Lachdanan is dead. Everybody knows that, and you can't fool me into thinking any other way. You can't talk to the dead. I know!"

 

Wirt:

"Wait, let me guess. Cain was swallowed up in a gigantic fissure that opened beneath him. He was incinerated in a ball of Hellfire, and can't answer your questions anymore. Oh, that isn't what happened? Then I guess you'll be buying something or you'll be on your way."

 

Adria:

"You may meet people who are trapped within the labyrinth, such as Lachdanan. I sense in him honor and great guilt. Aid him, and you aid all of Tristram."

 

Character:

"I need to get this to Lachdanan."

Warrior, Rogue, Sorcerer

 

Completion: (Lachdanan)

"You have saved my soul from Damnation, and for that I am in your debt. If there is ever a way that I can repay you from beyond the grave I will find it, but for now - take my Helm. On the journey I am about to take, I will have little use for it. May it protect you against the dark powers below. Go with the Light, my friend..."

Initiation: (Griswold)

"Stay for a moment - I have a story you might find interesting. A caravan that was bound for the the Eastern Kingdoms passed through here some time ago. It was supposedly carrying a piece of the Heavens that had fallen to Earth! The caravan was ambushed by cloaked riders just north of here along the roadway. I searched the wreckage for this Sky Rock, but it was nowhere to be found. If you should find it, I believe that I can fashion something useful from it."

 

Deckard Cain:

"Griswold speaks of the Heaven Stone that was destined for the enclave located in the East. It was being taken there for further study. This stone glowed with an Energy that somehow granted vision beyond that which a normal man could possess. I do not know what secrets it holds, my friend, but finding this stone would certainly prove most valuable."

 

Ogden:

"The caravan stopped here to take on some supplies for their journey to the East. I sold them quite an array of fresh fruits and some excellent sweetbreads that Garda has just finished baking. Shame what happened to them..."

 

Gillian:

"Well, a caravan of some very important people did stop here, but that was quite a while ago. They had strange accents and were starting on a long journey, as I recall. I don't see how you could hope to find anything that they would have been carrying."

 

Pepin:

"I don't know what it is that they thought they could see with that rock, but I will say this. If rocks are falling from the Sky, you had better be careful!"

"If anyone can make something out of that rock, Griswold can. He knows what he is doing, and as much as I try to steal his customers, I respect the quality of his work."

Initiation:

"Master, I have a strange experience to relate. I know that you have a great knowledge of those monstrosities that inhabit the Labyrinth, and this is something that I cannot understand for the very life of me... I was awakened during the night by a scraping sound just outside of my Tavern. When I looked out from my bedroom, I saw the shapes of small Demon-like creatures in the inn yard. After a short time, they ran off, but not before stealing the sign to my Inn. I don't know why the demons would steal my sign but leave my family in peace... 'This strange, no?"

 

Deckard Cain:

"I see that this strange behaviour puzzles you as well. I would surmise that since many Demons fear the Light of the Sun and believe that it holds great power, it may be that the Rising Sun depicted on the sign you speak of has led them to believe that it too holds some arcane powers. Hmm, perhaps they are not all as smart as we had feared..."

 

Pepin:

"My goodness, Demons running about the village at night, pillaging our homes - is nothing sacred? I hope that Ogden and Garda are all right. I suppose that they would come to see me if they were hurt..."

 

Griswold:

"Demons stole Ogden's Sign, you say? That doesn't sound much like the atrocities I've heard of - or seen. Demons are concerned with ripping out your heart, not your signpost."

 

Gillian:

"Oh, my! Is that where the sign went? My grandmother and I must have slept right through the whole thing. Thank the Light that those monsters didn't attack the Inn."

 

Wirt:

"What - is he saying I took that? I suppose that Griswold is on his side, too.
Look, I got over simple sign stealing months ago. You can't turn a profit on a piece of wood."

 

Farnham:

"You know what I think? Somebody took that sign, and they gonna want lots of money for it. If I was Ogden... and I'm not, but if I was... I'd just buy a new sign with some pretty drawing on it. Maybe a nice mug of ale or a piece of cheese..."

 

Adria:

"No Mortal can truly understand the mind of the Demon.
Never let their erratic actions confuse you, as that too may be their plan."

 

Snotspill, First Encounter:

"Hey - you that one that kill all! You get me magic banner or we attack! You no leave with Life! You kill big uglies and give back magic. Go past corner and door. Find uglies. You give, you go!"

 

Snotspill, Early Return:

"You kill uglies, get banner. You bring to me, or else..."

 

Snotspill, Return:

"You give! Yes, good! Go now, we strong! We kill all with big magic! (laughs)"

 

Completion:

"Oh, you didn't have to bring back my sign, but I suppose that it does save me the expense of having another one made. Well, let me see. What could I give you as a fee for finding it? Hmmm. What have we here... Ah, yes! This cap was left in one of the rooms by a magician who stayed here some time ago. Perhaps it may be of some value to you."

"I'm glad I caught up to you in time! Our wells have become brackish and stagnant and some of the townspeople have become ill from drinking them. Our reserves of fresh water are quickly running dry. I believe that there is a passage that leads to the springs that serve our town. Please find what has caused this calamity, or we all will surely perish."

 

Deckard Cain:

"Hmm, I don't know what I can really tell you about this that will be of any help. The water that fills our wells comes from an underground spring. I have heard of a tunnel that leads to a great lake - perhaps they are one and the same. Unfortunately, I do not know what would cause our water supply to be tainted."

 

Gillian:

"My grandmother is very weak, and Garda says that we cannot drink the water from the wells. Please, can you do something to help us?"

 

Ogden:

"I have always tried to keep a large supply of foodstuffs and drink in our storage cellar, but with the entire town having no source of fresh water, even our stores will soon run dry. Please, do what you can or I don't know what we will do."

 

Griswold:

"Pepin has told you the truth. We will need fresh water badly, and soon. I have tried to clear one of the smaller wells, but it reeks of stagnant filth. It must be getting clogged at the source."

 

Wirt:

"For once, I'm with you. My business runs dry - so to speak - if I have no market to sell to. You better find out what is going on, and soon!"

 

Farnham:

"(scoffs) You drink water?"

 

Adria:

"The people of Tristram will die if you cannot restore fresh water to their wells.
Know this - Demons are at the heart of this matter, but they remain ignorant of what they have spawned."

 

Pepin:

"Please, you must hurry. Every hour that passes brings us closer to having no water to drink. We cannot survive for long without your help."

 

Completion: (Pepin)

"What's that you say - the mere presence of the Demons had caused the water to become tainted? Oh, truly a great Evil lurks beneath our town, but your perseverance and courage gives us hope. Please take this ring - perhaps it will aid you in the destruction of such vile creatures."

Initiation: (Ogden)

"The village needs your help, Good Master! Some months ago King Leoric's son, Prince Albrecht, was kidnapped. The King went into a rage and scoured the village for his missing child. With each passing day, Leoric seemed to slip deeper into madness. He sought to blame innocent townsfolk for the boy's disappearance and had them brutally executed. Less than half of us survived his insanity...
The King's knights and priests tried to placate him, but he turned against them and sadly, they were forced to kill him. With his dying breath the King called down a terrible curse upon his former followers. He vowed that they would serve him in darkness forever...
This is where things take an even darker twist than I thought possible! Our former King has risen from his eternal sleep and now commands a legion of Undead Minions within the labyrinth. His body was buried in a tomb three levels beneath the Cathedral. Please, good Master, put his soul at ease by destroying his now cursed form..."

 

Deckard Cain:

"Ahh, the story of our King, is it? The tragic fall of Leoric was a harsh blow to this land. The people always loved the King, and now they live in mortal fear of him. The question that I keep asking myself is how he could have fallen so far from the Light, as Leoric had always been the holiest of men. Only the vilest powers of Hell could so utterly destroy a man from within..."

 

Griswold:

"I made many of the weapons and most of the armor that King Leoric used to outfit his knights. I even crafted a huge two-handed sword of the finest mithril for him, as well as a field crown to match. I still cannot believe how he died. But it must have been some sinister force that drove him insane!"

 

Adria:

"The dead who walk among the living follow the cursed King. He holds the power to raise yet more warriors for an ever-growing army of the Undead. If you do not stop his reign, he will surely march across this land and slay all who still live here."

 

Pepin:

"The loss of his son was too much for King Leoric. I did what I could to ease his madness, but in the end it overcame him. A black curse has hung over this kingdom from that day forward, but perhaps if you were to free his spirit from his Earthly prison, the curse would be lifted..."

 

Wirt:

"Look, I'm running a business here. I DON'T sell information, and I DON'T care about some King that's been dead longer than I've been alive. If you need something to use against this King of the Undead, then I can help you out..."

 

Gillian:

"I don't like to think about how the King died. I like to remember him for the kind and just ruler that he was. His death was so sad and seemed very wrong, somehow." 
 

Farnham:

"I don't care about that. Listen, no skeleton is gonna be MY king. Leoric is King. King, so you hear me? HAIL TO THE KING!"

 

Ogden:

"As I told you, Good Master, the King was entombed three levels below. He's down there, waiting in the putrid darkness for his chance to destroy this land..."

 

King Leoric:

“The warmth of life has entered my tomb... prepare yourself mortal... to serve my Master for eternity. Hahaha!”

Initiation: (Wounded Townsman)

"Please, listen to me. The Archbishop Lazarus, he lead us down here to find the lost prince. The bastard lead us into a trap! Now everyone is dead... Killed by a Demon he called the Butcher. Avenge us! Find this Butcher and slay him, so that our souls may finally rest..."

 

Deckard Cain:

"It seems that the Archbishop Lazarus goaded many of the townsmen into venturing into the Labyrinth to find the King's missing son. He played upon their fears and whipped them into a frenzied mob. None of them were prepared for what lay beneath the Cold Earth...Lazarus abandoned them down there - left in the clutches of unspeakable horrors - to die."

 

Wirt:

"I know more than you'd think about that grisly fiend. His little friends got a hold of me and managed to get my leg before Griswold pulled me out of that hole.
I'll put it bluntly - kill him before he kills you and adds your corpse to his collection."

 

Pepin:

"By the Light, I know of this vile Demon. There were many that bore the scars of his wrath upon their bodies when the few survivors of the charge led by Lazarus crawled from the Cathedral. I don't know what he used to slice open his victims, but it could not have been of this world. It left wounds festering with disease and even I found them almost impossible to treat. Beware if you plan to battle this fiend..."

 

Gillian:

"When Farnham said something about a Butcher killing people, I immediately discounted it. But since you brought it up, maybe it is true."

 

Ogden:

"Yes, Farnham has mumbled something about a hulking brute who wielded a fierce weapon. I believe he called him a Butcher."

 

Griswold:

"I saw what Farnham calls the Butcher as it swathed a path through the bodies of my friends. He swung a cleaver as large as an axe, hewing limbs and cutting down brave men where they stood. I was separated from the fray by a host of small screeching demons and somehow found the stairway leading out. I never saw that hideous beast again, but his blood-stained visage haunts me to this day."

 

Farnham:

"Big! Big cleaver killing all my friends. Couldn't stop him, had to run away, couldn't save them. Trapped in a room with so many bodies...so many friends...noooooooooo!"

 

Adria:

"The Butcher is a sadistic creature that delights in the torture and pain of others. You have seen his handiwork in the Drunkard Farnham. His destruction will do much to ensure the safety of this village."

Initiation: (Book of Blood)

...and so, locked beyond the gateway of blood and past the hell of fire, Valor awaits for the hero of light to awaken...

Warrior, Rogue, Sorcerer

 

Deckard Cain:

"The Gateway of Blood and the Halls of Fire are landmarks of mystic origin. Wherever this book you read from resides, it is surely a place of great power.
Legends speak of a pedestal that is carved from obsidian stone and has a pool of boiling blood atop its bone-encrusted surface. There are also allusions to stones of blood that will open a door that guards an ancient treasure... The nature of this treasure is shrouded in speculation, my friend, but it is said that the ancient hero Arkaine placed the holy armor Valor in a secret vault. Arkaine was the first mortal to turn the tide of the Sin War and chase the Legions of Darkness back to the Burning Hells.
Just before Arkaine died, his armor was hidden away in a secret vault. It is said that when this holy armor is again needed, a hero will arise to don Valor once more. Perhaps you are that hero..."

 

Griswold:

"The armor known as Valor could be what tips the scales in your favor. I will tell you that many have looked for it - including myself. Arkaine hid it well, my friend, and it will take more than a bit of luck to unlock the secrets that have kept it concealed oh, lo these many years."

 

Ogden:

"Every child hears the story of Arkaine and his mystic armor known as Valor. If you could find its resting place, you would be well-protected against the Evil in the Labyrinth."

 

Farnham:

"Hmm... It sounds like something I should remember, but I've been so busy learning new cures and creating better elixirs that I must have forgotten. Sorry..."

 

Gillian:

"The story of the magic armor called Valor is something I often heard the boys talk about. You had better ask one of the men in the village."

 

Wirt:

"You intend to find the armor known as Valor?
No one has ever figured out where Arkaine stashed the stuff, and if my contacts couldn't find it, I seriously doubt you ever will, either."

Reward

Access to level 14; several random items

 

Description

 

This hell quest involves a fierce battle with a legendary warrior who has become the guardian of the armories of hell. If this quest is available, the hero will be virtually unable to proceed any further until it is completed.

The quest occurs on the thirteenth dungeon level, and is initiated by reading the Steel Tome. The Warlord of Blood himself is guarding the stairs which lead to dungeon level fourteen. He is guarded by several Steel Lords, and is himself of the Knight enemy variety.

Defeating him completes the quest and makes it much easier to access the rare (and possibly unique) items in the room with the stairs. In addition, passage to level fourteen becomes much easier.

The Warlord of Blood is immune to Fire, Lightning and most magic including Bone Spirit, Blood Star and Flash. He is especially difficult for Sorcerers. Sorcerers with Stone Curse can kill him slowly with melee attacks. It's easiest and often best for sorcerers to simply not fight him, loot the room and descend the stairs.

Other characters can fight him normally.

Warrior, Rogue, Sorcerer

 

Deckard Cain:

"I know of only one legend that speaks of such a warrior as you describe. His story is found within the ancient chronicles of the Sin War...
Stained by a thousand years of war, blood and death, the Warlord of Blood stands upon a mountain of his tattered victims. His dark blade screams a black curse to the living; a tortured invitation to any who would stand before this Executioner of Hell. It is also written that although he was once a mortal who fought beside the Legion of Darkness during the Sin War, he lost his humanity to his insatiable hunger for blood."

 

Griswold:

"Dark and wicked legends surrounds the one Warlord of Blood. Be well prepared, my friend, for he shows no mercy or quarter."

 

Ogden:

"I am afraid that I haven't heard anything about such a vicious warrior, Good Master. I hope that you do not have to fight him, for he sounds extremely dangerous."

 

Gillian:

"If you are to battle such a fierce opponent, may Light be your guide and your defender. I will keep you in my thoughts."

 

Pepin:

"Cain would be able to tell you much more about something like this than I would ever wish to know."

"Always you gotta talk about blood? What about flowers, and sunshine, and that pretty girl that brings the drinks. Listen here, friend - you're obsessive, you know that?"

 

Wirt:

"I haven't ever dealt with this Warlord you speak of, but he sounds like he's going through a lot of swords. Wouldn't mind supplying his armies..."

 

Adria:

"His prowess with the blade is awesome, and he has lived for thousands of years knowing only warfare. I am sorry... I can not see if you will defeat him."
