Legacy of the Horadrim is a new feature added to Diablo Immortal Beta on October 28, 2021. Around level 49, the quest titled Legacy of the Horadrim will pop onscreen in your quest tracker: “Listen to a Mysterious Voice.” Click the quest. Before this quest was unlocked, I had looted Cardesann’s Compasion from the last boss of a Challenge Rift (difficulty 10) at level 48. The item couldn’t be interacted with until level 49.
NOTE: Skip to the bottom of the page, for all the vessels, their stats and which bosses drop them.
This triggers a video clip to play onscreen showing a vision of the founding Horadrim empowering a large crystal with their essence.
Memory of Iben Fahd: “The founding magi of the Horadrim sacrificed our very essence for Sanctuary. Our power, memories, accomplishments — all stored away. What you hold is an ember of our legacy… waiting to be stoked. Meet me where four wolves wet their paws. I will show you truth hidden within the City of the Light.”
LEGACY OF THE HORADRIM QUESTLINE (TRANSCRIPT)
Character: “Meet me where four wolves wet their paws. I will show you truth hidden within the City of Light.” A bit tricky. The City of the Light can only be Westmarch. And they certainly do love wolf imagery…
** Go to the fountain in Central Square (Westmarch). Talk to the NPC named Fellig.
Fellig: Beautiful, isn’t it?
Character: That striking light?
Fellig: Light? What light? No, I simply meant the statues.
Character: The fountain’s gleaming… but no one else seems to notice. An illusion meant for me, then.
Objective: Inspect the Fountain.
Memory of Iben Fahd: You have performed well to carry our legacy this far. Do not be alarmed. Only you can hear my voice. Follow its sound. I was called Iben Fahd. I give you a gift that will advantage you in your war with the fiends.
Character: You are one of the Horadrim? I recognize your voice from the stone.
Memory of Iben Fahd: I am but a memory preserved. Once, I helped found the Horadrim at the demands of the Archangel Tyrael. We slew some of the greatest evils on Sanctuary… but we could not conquer death. The Order, too, has gone. You hold a… remedy, of a kind. The vessel you carry is meant to pass our greatest traits to future Horadrim. Only those worthy to take up the fight will discover one. I bring you to hear the teachings of the Order in our own words, that you may use the vessels well. Should you survive, it will be your charge to recover the others… and make our power your own.
Objective: follow the Memory of Iben Fahd (a yellow orb floating toward the north of the fountain).
Character: More secrets beneath Westmarch? The city’s practically balancing on them.
Note: You must click the statue when it becomes outlined and interactive.
FEATURE UNLOCKED: LEGACY OF THE HORADRIM
Objective: Descend into the Sanctum (0/1)
Character: What is this place?
Iben Fahd: A gate, away from the city, to our legacy. Where we bled out our strength for those who would succeed us. Only those prepared to face our trials should pass beyond it. I do not need to ask if you are one such. But your worthiness is merely a beginning. When you are at your greatest is when you must give of yourself. Step through the portal and learn.
Objective: Explore the Sanctum of Iben Fahd.
Objective: Find the Legacy Shrine
Iben Fahd: This is a vault of dreams, not bones. It has been long since any visited these chambers… longer still since any paid their respects.
Objective: Place a vessel at the Legacy Shrine.
When you click the Shrine, the Legacy of the Horadrim UI opens onscreen with 9 Vessel slots. You have to farm specific bosses until you randomly loot a Vessel that may be placed in one of them. Each of the 9 Vessels grant the player a permanent stat that can in turn be upgraded. The requirement for upgrades is one out of three currencies seen at the top-right of this screen: Garnet, Sapphire, and/or Beryl.
Place the Caldessan’s Compassion vessel into the outlined slot.
Note: These Vessels are also interesting because they unlock the projection of each of the founding Horadrim members when you place them in the Shrine. Here, Caldesann materializes as an interactive NPC. By association, this means that memory figures of Jered Cain and Zoltun Kulle might also materialize here when we unlock them. Might they be used for future quests post-launch?
Memory of Iben Fahd: Now, let us see how well you emulate our courage. Head to the sanctum depths.
Objective: Enter the Sanctum Depths (0/1)
Memory of Iben Fahd: These trials shaped us, and the vessel you carry.
Objective: Reach the Aspirants’ Grounds (0/1)
Memory of Iben Fahd: In part. Our legacy lies in fragments. You must rejuvenate it before you can truly claim it. Remnants of the power we donated — culling stones — are locked behind the trials. Bring them to the natatorium to attune yourself.
Character: Everything’s in pieces these days.
Note: Kill nephalem warriors, enraged phantoms, and dogs in the Aspirant’s Grounds. Loot “Aspirants’ Key” from them. These open the treasure chests at the end of the sanctum — which contain random amounts of any of these: Garnet, Sapphire and Beryl. These are used as currency to upgrade your Legacy of the Horadrim’s vessels.
Memory of Iben Fahd: One test complete. You will be privy to more of our power. Enter the aspirant’s grounds. Gather what your performance allots you. Bring the culling stones to the natatorium, and begin to restore the legacy. I expect you’ll use our gifts as I would — but it is your decision. Were I living, I might envy you that freedom.
Objective: Recover Culling Stones (0/1)
There are 9 Treasure Chests at the end of the shrine. You can open as many as you have Aspirant’s Key. If you don’t have enough keys, you are given the option to open them at a cost of 400 Platinum each.
Memory of Iben Fahd: The Order awaited this moment for centuries. It is time. Should you find other vessels, return here. This place is connected to Westmarch through the passages above. In time, our story and our strength will be yours. See that you remain deserving.

LEGACY OF THE HORADRIM BUFFS
