Necromancer: I have retrieved the crown.
Deckard Cain: At last. With it, you can unlock the sealed door in the room where you rescued me and enter the royal crypts. When you find the Skeleton King, place the crown atop his head... and destroy him.
Necromancer: There is no other way to reach the fallen star, it seems.
Use the New Tristram Waypoint to return to the Cathedral Garden
Enter Leoric's Passage
Go to the Cathedral Level 2 through the Ornate Door
Descend through the Cathedral
Note: What it is actually saying is: Find the entrance to Cathedral Level 3. Look out for the ping in the mini-map when you are getting closer.
LOCATION: CATHEDRAL LEVEL 3
Give aid to the Warrior
Acolyte: Maintain your incantations! He will soon turn...
Acolyte #2: Ave, magistros, Ave, registrus. Ave, leodastus. Ave, mendaxas. Illius animos. Illius vellenas. Illius fortens.
Templar: Your magic is weakening... I am free! Now, back to my mission.
Necromancer: Who are you?
Templar: You will know soon enough. Help me find my gear. I will reward you well.
Find the Warrior's Stolen Items
Templar: Tell me, what brought you to this infernal place?
Necromancer: I must slay the Skeleton King.
Templar: Then our aims align.
Templar #2: Why have you come here, brother?
Templar: One of our number has forsaken his vows and joined the demonic coven that infests this fallen cathedral. The cultists dragged me past this glowing pit. What made it? Down this way! There are my weapons!
Templar: I am Kormac, warrior of the templar order. If it is the Skeleton King you seek, then you will have to fight your way past Jondar. There is no reason we should hunt alone.
Necromancer: If you insist.
Templar: Evil cowers at the sight of just one templar. Two will bring it to its knees.
Find and kill Jondar
Note: This area is random-generated, but there should be a deadend with a Cathedral Level 3 Waypoint nearby. Stand on it to unlock it if this is your first time.
Open the Wooden Door, when you reach this junction.
Templar: Black magic bars our way... but the will of the Templar is stronger.
Templar: You were a templar, Jondar! How could you succumb to this coven?
Jondar: The Coven is my brotherhood now, Kormac! The powers we serve will soon rule this world!
Jondar: Please forgive me. My vision was clouded by the Coven's evil magic.
Templar: Betrayal can never be forgiven.
Join the Templar
Templar: Thank you for your aid. I will go with you on your hunt for the Skeleton King, but there is one condition. If we find the sacred tomes of my order, they are mine.
Necromancer: Do as you please. Such books do not interest me.
Templar: Then onwards we go to fight the Skeleton King.
Search for the Royal Crypts
LOCATION: CATHEDRAL LEVEL 4
TIP: You know you are near the exit when you find the Fallen Star crater.
Enter the Royal Crypts.
Find the Crypt of the Skeleton King
A flashback event happens when you click Leoric's Sword at this location in the Royal Crypts.
Lachdanan: Keep your distance from him. This burden is mine to bear.
Lachdanan: May death bring peace from your madness, Leoric.
Leoric: Traitors! Even in death, the armies of Khanduras will still obey their king! Even if you will not...
Skeleton King: You dare to bring the warmth of life into my tomb?
Templar: We shall put you down, hellspawn!
TIP: Destroy the 4 Activated Pillars.
Note: Get past the two doors and porticulis. Then turn left at the end of the hallway. Click the Ornate Door to enter the Crypt of the Skeleton King.
Enter the Crypt of the Skeleton King
Skeleton King: You will never defeat me!
LOCATION: CRYPT OF THE SKELETON KING
Templar: You were defeated the moment you surrendered to madness!
Note: The spirits of the Returned lock the gate. Shortly after, the spirits coalesce into skeleton warriors.
Kill the Returned

Kill the Skeleton King
Enter the Desolate Chamber
Note: Click the blue portal beneath the Skeleton King's throne.
Talk to the Stranger in the Desolate Chamber
Necromancer: The crater...
Necromancer: This is unexpected. How did you come here?
The Stranger: I am... I--I was... I... I remember falling.
Necromancer: Who are you?
The Stranger: I am not your enemy. I think... Yes, I-- I believe... I have come with a warning. The darkness... the darkness... is coming! I must... don't remember...
Necromancer: You must get to safety. Then we will find answers.
Return to New Tristram
Note: Open the door to access the Desolate Chamber Waypoint. Select New Tristram.
Necromancer: I believed it was a fallen star... but in truth, it was only a man.
Necromancer: And, of course, his memories have vanished. Perhaps Deckard Cain will know more.
LOCATION: NEW TRISTRAM
Necromancer: I found him in the crater.
Deckard Cain: No man could survive such a thing... Who are you? What are you?
The Stranger: A warrior, I think... I came bearing grave news, but I cannot remember...
Deckard Cain: Your message might be all that can save us from impending doom.
