Sergeant Dalen: What in the Hells was that?
Necromancer: Nothing you should fear.
Sergeant Dalen: We've seen the fires you've lit. Fear has no more hold on us! The catapults could break Azmodan's lines, but we can't raise them from their berths while demons swarm over the walls!
Necromancer: That is why I am here.
Catapults raised in Stonefort (0/3)
I would have raised these catapults at the first sign of invasion, but these soldiers did not have the chance. As long as they're still standing, they can help us repel Azmondan's forces. Every advantage is precious in this bleak battle.
Templar: It is grim out here, but we've seen worse.
Note: The Stonefort Waypoint is right there. If this is your first time, unlock it.
Talk to Captain Haile to start raising the first Catapult.
Captain Hale: Thank the heavens you're here. We're down to four lads until reinforcements arrive. Trouble is, the lift stopped. We can't see what went wrong through all the muck down there. Oh, what now?
(The ground grate collapses. Demons pour out from it as they climb the inner walls)
Waiting for Reinforcements
Defeat the demon ambush
Soldier: More of the brutes from below, Captain! What do we do?
Captain Haile: Private, if you need to be told which end of the sword goes where, you haven't been paying attention! Fight to your last breath, lads!
Captain Haile: The Lift is moving again! Hold steady, lads! Reinforcements are on their way!
Note: Not truth. The lift is bringing in more demon troopers led by a soldier of Hell: Dragus.
Captain Haile: Demons! Get ready, men!
Captain Haile: We would've fallen without your aid! It was an honor to fight at your side.
Templar: That was Captain Haile of Westmarch. He's won hundreds of lost causes all over the world. I heard the king had to threaten him with treason just to get him to return home for a promotion.
Continue heading north for the first Catapult. Talk to Sergeant Burroughs.
Sergeant Burroughs: You must be the one that lit the signal fires! Help me free the recruits so they can raise this catapult! Over here!
Stay there until Demon Troopers and Demonic Hellflyers start attacking. Kill them.
Waiting for Reinforcements
Protect the recruits as they raise the catapult
Sergeant Burroughs: Many men were slaughtered while we held the upper ramparts.
Necromancer: That is the way of war.
Templar: I know, but I wonder... were they waiting for reinforcements that never came?
Sergeant Burroughs: With the fires lit and the catapults firing on the battlefield, Bastion's Keep just might hold. You've given us hope. Thank you.
Keep moving forward until you find Lieutenant Lavail with a quest.
Lieutenant Lavail: Scouts report that more of those wretched demon hell bearers will be here any moment! The soldiers need to be protected. The platform will rise more quickly if we don't lose men!
Protect and Serve
Protect the soldiers raising the catapult
A Demonic Hell Bearer vomits out Demon Troopers. Kill them, and the Bearer worm. Don't allow the demons to kill any of the men raising the catapult.
Another Demonic Hell Bearer climbs the wall to the north, around the corner.
A third and fourth Demonic Hell Bearer climb the wall at the corner.
Lieutenant Lavail: Thanks to your help, we can finally get these catapults firing on the demons on the battlefield. The soldiers out there have a chance now.
Note: Downstairs, in Torment mode, you might find the Tormentor of the Damned: Xah'rith the Keywarden of Terror -- who drops the Infernal Machine of Terror, which helps you acquire a Hellfire Amulet's ingredient.
Talk to Lieutenant Clyfton to start the last quest to raise Catapult #3.
Necromancer: You're here alone?
Lieutenant Clyfton: Of course I'm bloody well alone! Everyone else has gone and died, but I'll be damned if I'll leave my post!
Use the Wich to raise the catapult
Note: To complete this event, you must kill incoming demons, then click the winch every 5 seconds when it becomes clickable. Rinse and repeat until the event concludes.
If you forget to click, Clyfton will complain angrily, and alert you.
Lieutenant Clifton: I... can't... believe you're... making me... do this... on my own!
Lieutenant Clifton: Done! I... uh... promised Captain Haile I'd watch my temper. Do me a favor and don't mention that I shouted at you a little, all right?
Pop the Town Portal (T).
Catapults raised in Stonefort (3/3) - COMPLETE
Return to the Bastion's Keep Stronghold
Finally, I have met soldiers who are eager to fight back! Together we have raised the catapults, and driven Azmodan's army from the keep walls. It will be interesting to see how this demon lord reacts to setbacks...
LOCATION: BASTION'S KEEP STRONGHOLD
Vision of Azmodan: While you tinkered with your paltry catapults, my demons breached the depths of your keep. Once they've claimed the Black Soulstone for me, your entire world will burn.
