Diablo II - NPC Dialogue Lore - Act III - The Blackened Temple

Ormus You must know that the Guardian Tower in the Temple City was built by the Horadrim for one purpose - to hold Mephisto. Once the Council is dead, you may enter the Tower.

Alkor

I am but a potion dealer and an avid reader of occult books. What do I know of the Travincal?

Asheara

There are many zealots among the followers of Zakarum. It will be difficult to get past them.

Meshif

It has been said that Ormus speaks most clearly when his ideas are utterly mad.

Natalya

Beware the followers of Zakarum. Their fanaticism is their greatest weapon.

Alkor

If only we could have found the Black Book. I feel as though a malevolent hand has led us away from it.

NOTE: As you enter the Blackened Temple of Travincal the Quest Log updates.

Kill the High Council.

Ormus

If you die on this quest, I will commemorate your sacrifice in an epic poem. You will not need a potion to achieve immortality. Ormus’ words will do that.

Deckard Cain

Sankekur may be using a Compelling Orb to control the minds of the Children of Zakarum.

Asheara

The Iron Wolves and I are at the ready to aid you.

Alkor

Kill as many as you can. I have a morbid love of excess.

Natalya

I respect your need to do this. Honor demands that you see this through. Yet your chances are so slim . . .

Hratli

The followers of Zakarum demand complete allegiance to their creed. They have slaughtered many of their own for minor grievances.

They will not hesitate to kill you.

NOTE: After killing the High Council at the Guardian Tower, the Quest Log updates.

Ask Cain for Help.

Deckard Cain

Ridding Kurast of the Council of Zakarum was essential. Still, there is more you must do. The Compelling Orb, too, must be destroyed.

Diablo and Baal must be close to finding their brother, Mephisto, by now. You’ve no time to waste.

Ormus

Ormus is grateful to you, stranger. You have broken the long, dark reign of Zakarum and delivered the first paralyzing blow against the Three.

Yet still, the true test lies ahead. For he whom the Council guarded still lives within the Blackened Tower.

Asheara

The sun has set on the Religion of Light.

Meshif

It seems the jungle is already dying back. You’ve broken the curse, my friend! May the Light bless you!

Natalya

I can hardly believe you did it. Your power blankets you like a shining aura.

Hratli

The followers of Zakarum lacked all sense of moderation. The collapse of their tainted religion gives me hope.

Alkor

You’ve accomplished the impossible! By killing the Council, the curse of Zakarum will be lifted and our land will be free!

Oh. Thank you!
