Zoltun Kulle: I will give you the Black Soulstone, but in exchange, I must be made whole once again.
Tyrael: You were treacherous before. How do I know you won't be an even greater threat once you've been fully revived?
Zoltun Kulle: You don't. So you must ask yourself... how much would you risk to save this wretched world?
Zoltun Kulle: Ah, so be it. To begin, you will need to retrieve my blood from the dungeons where it has been hidden away. You will find them in the Desolate Sands beyond the aqueducts.
Enter the Ancient Waterway in Dahlgur Oasis
The rest of Zoltun Kulle's body has been dismembered and scattered within the area. I will give htem one thing -- the Horadrim were thorough. This will give me some time to see exactly how treacherous Kulle truly is.
Leah: I'm going to go with you. We should bring Kulle's head with us. Maybe he'll have something useful to say. I'll put him in your bag.
Templar: This is madness! You must know he will betray us!
LOCATION: DAHLGUR OASIS
Zoltun Kulle: You're an interesting one, aren't you? I wonder if your friends know what you truly are...
Necromancer: I have no time to entertain our assumptions.
Zoltun Kulle: Oh, all will be revealed... in time.
Note: The Ancient Waterway is a fixed location. You can find it in the map here:
Ssthrass: You will not enter the aqueduct. Lord belial demands your blood!
Zoltun Kulle: I can open this gate for you.
Go through the Western Channel to the Western Flow Control and pull the lever, then go through the Eastern Channel to the Eastern Flow Control and pull the lever there.

Open the entrance to the Waterlogged Passage
Hakan is trying so very hard to be helpful, which does nothing to allay my suspicions. A darkness lingers around him, and it's not the amulet he uses. He is up to something, but what is it, exactly?
LOCATION: ANCIENT WATERWAY
Necromancer: You again.
Emperor Hakan II: No time for pleasantries. I think I may have uncovered Belial's assumed identity. I'm very close. But here's what you need to know. To find Kulle's blood, you'll need to get through the aqueducts. There are two levers that control the entrance beneath the waterfall.
Note: Two new dialogues are unlocked. Click Hakan to open the dialogue.
Note: Enter the Western Channel behind Emperor Hakan II.
LOCATION: WESTERN CHANNEL
Necromancer: Something foul came here before us.
Leah: It's Belial. So long as he lives, all of Caldeum is under siege.
Templar: Does he command all of these demons to serve him?
Leah: Uncle Deckard theorized that the demon lords leave demons in their wake, much like us leaving footprints.
Necromancer: And you agree with him.
Leah: Yes. The more I study my uncle's books, the more I realize that even I took his wisdom for granted.
Templar: I hope Haedrig knows how to remove rust from armored boots.
Leah: I miss searching for lost artifacts with Uncle Deckard, even though it did have its dangerous side. I can't tell you how many times I had to drag him away from an army of skeletons because he was fixated on some dusty old tapestry.
Note: There is a chance to find a Satcherl which contains this journal:
Note: Continue searching for the Western Flow Control. This is the exit.
Now click the lever.
Note: The lever closes the flow of water to the waterfall.
Leah: That's one lever down.
Note: Now exit the room through the door that opens to the west.
LOCATION: EASTERN CHANNEL
Templar: The Light still guides us even in the darkest of places.
Leah: The philosopher Kadus said "If you want to know the truth of a city, you need look no further than the state of its infrastructure."
Necromancer: Then Caldeum is rotting.
Leah: Yes. And built on secrets.
Note: The Eastern Channel has many deadends, too. Continue to search for the random location of the Eastern Flow Control.
LOCATION: EASTERN FLOW CONTROL
Note: Click the lever.
Note: That leverl opens a hidden door on the right side of the Ancient Waterway.
Leah: That passage should lead to the Desolate Sands.
Note: Leave to the door to the east.
LOCATION: ANCIENT WATERWAY
Zoltun Kulle: A secret door hidden behind a waterfall. How imaginative.
Necromancer: What would you have done?
Zoltun Kulle: You shall see when we get to my archives.
Note: Enter the Waterlogged Passage.
LOCATION: WATERLOGGED PASSAGE
Covetous Shen: I can't believe he stuck me in a barrel. Really, it's quite uncomfortable in here.
Kill the Betrayed
Note: You are ambushed by . Destroy the Diseased Bodies (pile of corpses) to stop the Betrayed from spawning new units.
Covetous Shen: Are you still alive out there? Or is it the monsters?
Break the Talking Barrel
Talk to Covetous Shen in the Waterlogged Passage from the Ancient Waterway
A man in a barrel? This is ridiculous.
Covetous Shen: Thank you for releasing me! It was getting a little borin in there! Eh, uh, I-I am seeking a magic crucible that legend says was hidden in these very aqueducts, ahaha. It would be a valuable addition to my jeweler's tools, ahaha.
Covetous Shen: Help me find it, and I will be greatly indebted to you!
Find the Crucible in the Hidden Aqueducts
Covetous Shen is a frivolous man, but there is only one way out of the aqueducts. I must endure his company for the time being.
Covetous Shen: How rude of me. I forgot to introduce myself. My name is Covetous Shen!
Necromancer: Only an enemy would name you that.
Covetous Shen: What? I have no enemies! Everybody loves Shen!
Note: Open the door.
Note: Now exit through the Hidden Aqueducts door.
LOCATION: HIDDEN AQUEDUCTS
Covetous Shen: I can't imagine why my young partner bashed me over the head and sealed me in there. This place is quite dangerous without a knowledgeable guide.
Necromancer: Wait, you were his guide?
Covetous Shen: Oh, yes, I could show you around the world five times and never stub a toe!
Covetous Shen: What a fascinating place this is. Look at all this wonderful architecture. You could walk all the way around the world and never find its like. Except for this part. I've seen this somewhere else before.
Covetous Shen: Now I wonder where my young guide go off to. His name was Gavin, I believe. Yes, that was it. Nice young fellow.
Kill Gavin the Thief
Gavin the Thief (Plaguebearer): The crucible is mine!
Covetus Shen: Be careful, Gavin. It might be cursed!
Pick up the Crucible
Covetous Shen: The crucible should be safe now. Pick it up. Pick it up!
Note: Click the Crucible.
Go to the Ancient Path
Covetous Shen: Poor young man. If I had known the crucible was cursed, I never would have brought him along. If you come see me in Caldeum, I can show you how the crucible can combine jewel fragments, hehe. Well, you know, I have been searching for a certain jewel for a long, long time. I'm in no rush, but maybe if I go with you, I'll find it just like I found this crucible. May I come with you on your journey and make glorious jewelry for you?
Necromancer: As long as you don't cause any trouble.
Covetous Shen: The way out is just a little farther. I am starving! Do you think we'll find any good food down here?
Necromancer: Highly unlikely.
Note: Exit through this door to the Ancient Path.
LOCATION: ANCIENT PATH
Leah: You go on ahead. I'm going back to town. I need to learn the spell needed to restore Kulle's body. I'll meet you when you get to the archives.
Get the Blood of Zoltun Kulle from the Cave of the Betrayer Level 2 and the Vault of the Assassin in the Desolate Sands.
Get the Blood of Zoltun Kulle from the Cave of the Betrayer (0/1)
Get the Blood of Zoltun Kulle from the Vault of the Assassin (0/1)
Between Hakan, Shen, and Kulle, I have no shortage of annoyances. It is not enough to deter me from the task at hand, however. I will recover Kulle's blood, even if I regret his company every step of the way.
Zoltun Kulle: You and I are the same. But those others -- the fallen angel, the witch -- they're using you for their own ends. You choose to be their puppet, yet the power of your birthright could make you a god!
Necromancer: I am a priest of Rathma. I serve a greater calling.
Zoltun Kulle: There's no need to be snide. Soon enough I'll walk this world again. Then I'll show you what a nephalem can achieve!
LOCATION: DESOLATE SANDS
Zoltun Kulle: My archives lie beneath this desert, perhaps even beneath the sands we now tread upon. Some of my blood is within that cave. I can feel it...
LOCATION: CAVE OF THE BETRAYER LEVEL 1
Templar: We are well on our way. At this rate, the soulstone will be ours soon.
Note: At the entrance there might be a Zoltun Kulle's Journal on the ground.
Note: Search for the entrance to Cave of the Betrayer Level 2.
LOCATION: CAVE OF THE BETRAYER LEVEL 2
Templar: What further trials await us now?
Note: Search for the Blood of Zoltun Kulle -- next to the exit obelisk.
Note: You might find another journal in this level.
Note: You can find the Desolate Sands Waypoint in the northern area, southeast of the Zoltun Kulle Archives, if you need to unlock it.
Note: Search for the Vault of the Assassin which looks like this.
Zoltun Kulle: In here... I can feel my blood nearby. They hid some of it beyond this portal.
LOCATION: VAULT OF THE ASSASSIN
Templar: It's hard to believe the Horadrim came to a place like this...
Note: Search for the Blood of Zoltun Kulle deep within the Vault of the Assassin.
Note: The blood drops a journal.
NOTE: The quest Blood and Sand ends abruptly after looting the two Bloods of Zoltun Kulle. A new quest is triggered instantaneously without going to the Hidden Camp.
