Necromancer: I will help you find your uncle, Leah.

Leah: We’ll need to open the cathedral first. The guards locked it up before they were ambushed. Rumford told me they fought their way back to Adria’s hut. The key must still be there.



  • Use the New Tristram Waypoint to go to the Old Ruins


  • Go to the Old Tristram Gate

Leah: Here, let me open the gate.


  • Find Adria’s Hut


Leah: Adria was my mother, but I don’t know much about her. She died when I was very young. I was raised by Uncle Deckard.

Necromancer: Did you know your father?

Leah: I’m told he was a great warrior who was lost when Tristram fell to the demons.


  • Search Adria’s Hut

Leah: Look — a hidden cellar! Follow me!


  • Enter the Hidden Cellar in Adria’s Hut

Necromancer: Dark magic lingers here.

Leah: People said she was a witch, but I never believed it. Captain Daltyn?!


  • Kill Captain Daltyn and the Risen


  • Talk to Leah in the Hidden Cellar

Leah: Here’s the key… and my mother’s journal. What I’ve seen of it is disturbing. I want to know more about here, but that can wait. We need to save Uncle Deckard first!

Necromancer: Leave that to me. You’d best stay and learn what you can.

Leah: Thank you.

Aidan came to me last night. I suspected what was lurking within his troubled heart. I consoled him as best I could. Regardless, wherever he’s headed, Hell will surely follow in his wake.

The shadows close in on Tristram once again. But, like Aidan, I’ll be gone before they fall.


Note: New dialogue options become enabled by clicking Leah.

NecromancerHow did your mother die?
Well, details are hazy, but I know that Adria was obsessed with chasing the arcane. She knew she could never raise a child.

Uncle Deckard believes that the madness and horror of her life finally caught up with her.


  • Go to the Cathedral

Note: Head north of Adria’s Hut once the wall crumbles down to open a path east.

Necromancer: Ah, Tristram Cathedral…

Note: Click the door to open it.


  • Enter Cathedral Level 1

Note: Click the glowy breach to enter Cathedral Level 1.


  • Search for signs of Deckard Cain in the Cathedral.

Templar: Tristram Cathedral… I’m amazed it still stands.

Necromancer: The star fell below.

Templar: Do you smell that? The stone itself burns.

Necromancer: All must serve the cycle.

Templar: The Horadrim had a monastery here long ago.

Necromancer: So I have heard. But it fell to ruin with their order.

Templar: Indeed.

Note: Search for a glowy door named Leoric’s Passage.



Deckard Cain: Foul minions! Stay back! Back!! May this ledge hold…

Deckard Cain: The Skeleton King?

Skeleton King: The power of the fallen star awakened me, and soon all will suffer as I have suffered. Guards! Bring me his bones.


  • Kill the skeletons attacking Deckard Cain

Necromancer: Deckard Cain!

Deckard Cain: Stay back!

Note: Kill Headcleaver (Royal Executioner).


  • Talk to Deckard Cain in Leoric’s Passage

Deckard Cain: Thank you. But why did you risk yourself for me?

Necromancer: I believe we can help each other. Your niece told me you were here.

Deckard Cain: Oh… it is wonderful to hear that Leah is well! I feared the worst.


  • Follow Deckard Cain

Deckard Cain: I learned of this secret passage through old maps I found.

Deckard Cain: We must discuss the fallen star. Follow me to Tristram.

Note: Click the Cathedral Garden Waypoint to open the map. Click New Tristram to teleport there.


Necromancer: I have found Leah’s uncle, Deckard Cain.

He was pursued by a creature called the Skeleton King — who blocks the path to the fallen star.


  • Talk to Leah in New Tristram

Leah: Uncle! You’re alive!

Deckard Cain: Thanks to you and your friend here.

Necromancer: Friend? I am not often called that. But I wish to know more about the fallen star.

Deckard Cain: The Prophecy of the End Days surely points to it as a sign that the end has begun…

Leah: Please, Uncle, not more of your stories. All that matters now is that you’re back.



LeahI’ve spent most of my life traveling from place to place with Uncle Deckard while he did his crazy research.
NecromancerIt seems reasonable enough to me.
LeahHe is convinced that the forces of Hell will invade our world and bring about the end times. All these years, he’s still searching for a way to stop this… apocalypse.
NecromancerWhat did you learn of Adria?
LeahShe wasn’t from Tristram originally. She came here during the troubles.

She was in search of something, but I am not sure what. She reminds me of Uncle Deckard, obsessed with the war between angels and demons.

Mayor HolusSo this is how it ends? They dragged my cart from the road, but for what? I can’t get it repaired. Might as well dig a hole and die in it.
NecromancerYou would not be alone. Many have died before their time here.

Brother Malachi the Healer“From the east shall come a monarch whose rule begins in blood and ends in bone. In the light of a comet will he die a third and final death at the hands of a chosen woman.”

Villager #1: You know what would take everyone’s mind off their troubles? One of Theodas’s great comedies.
Villager #2: I’ve seen one of them. Two men dressed as women, screeching at each other and tearing their bodices? Oh, that’d cheer me right up.
Villager #1: Glad to hear it. Rehearsal is in three hours!

Arghus the Collector: Each of my items is very special to me, but I suppose I can sell you one or two things if I must.

Villager #3: Leah spent all night alongside the blacksmith’s wife, tending the wounded.
Villager #4: What? She was out defending the gates this morning. What is driving that woman?

Villager #5: Did you hear? Old Rumford has us down to half rations. How are we supposed to fight if we’re starving?
Villager #6: The rest of the town is down to quarter. Including my wife. But you can quit if you want.

NecromancerWhat troubles you?
Haedrig EamonIt’s my wife; she’s very ill.
NecromancerThere is a balance in all things. Should her time come, death is nothing to fear.

Radek the Fence: Don’t tell anyone, but I’ve got some new items you really should see. Sure, I may do business with some unsavory types, but I pass the savings on to you!

Guard: This gate is locked by order of the captain.
Guard: You can’t go out there! The hollow is swarming with horrors. If we were to open these gates they’d overwhelm the town in minutes.
