Lieutenant Lavail: Terrifying noises were coming from the armory, so Tyrael went to investigate. He said if you were to return, I should send you there.
Tyrael: Azmodan’s demons have opened an enormous hole in our walls and are flooding into the depths. If it is not closed, the keep will be overrun!
Necromancer: Leave it to me.
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.
Tyrael: The keep’s defenses cannot hold. Its soldiers are scattered, fleeing before Azmodan’s onslaught, which rushes forth from Arreat Crater. Should the keep fall, Azmodan will claim the Black Soulstone. If he does, there will be no hope for this world.

A few weeks ago, Rod Fergusson acknowledged he was leaving The Coalition where he worked 15 years developing the Gears of War franchise at Epic Games initially as an executive producer, then director of production from 2005-2011.
In 2012, Fergusson left Epic Games to join Irrational Games.
Later, in 2014, Microsoft acquired the Gears of War franchise and assigned its development to The Coalition. Hearing this, Fergusson returned to Gears of War from 2014-2020.
Adria: Now to the gates! We have no time to lose.
Leah: Let’s go!
Note: The quest starts immediately after completing The Scouring of Caldeum quest — before the timer runs out.
Leah: We’ve got to reach the Emperor! He said he can lead us to Belial!
Adria: Are you certain we can trust the child?
Tyrael: We have no choice. But know this: if Belial gets desperate, he will unleash Hell upon Caldeum.
Leah: So before we face him, we must evacuate the citizens. The Iron Wolves can help. Let’s speak with them.
Note: The Black Soulstone quest doesn’t start at the Hidden Camp like other quests in Act II. This quest commences when you have collected both Blood of Zoltun Kull — completing the quest: Blood and Sand.
Use the Town Portal at the Vault of the Assassin. Then use the Waypoint at the Hidden Camp to teleport to the Desolate Sands (if you unlocked it earlier).
