Diablo 2 Resurrected is finally here, and with it, a myriad of quests, enemies, and challenges for you to discover (or re-discover!). Today we will take you through the fifth Story Quest of Act 5, Rite of Passage, which will require you to face the three Ancients, Madawc, Korlic, and Talic.


Diablo 2 Resurrected, Act V: Rite of Passage

Quest Name: Rite of Passage

Area Level

Arreat Summit: 37 (Normal), 68 (Nightmare), 87 (Hell)

Unlocked By: Reaching the Ancient's Way, or entering the Arreat Summit, given by Qual-Kehk.

When you reach the Ancient's Way and then the Arreat Summit, you will find the three Ancients you need to defeat to be prepared to face Baal. Arreat Summit is by far the prettiest area of the entire game, and it'll serve as an arena to fight against these three Barbarian warriors. The list of Ancients goes as follows:

  • Madawc, The Guardian
  • Korlic, The Protector
  • Talic, The Defender

Madawc uses ranged attacks, while Korlic wields a great Axe and Talic uses Sword and Shield. The three Ancient statues will come to life at the same time and you must defeat them all if you want to finish this quest. However, the difference between this and other boss fights is that this one has a curious gimmick.

You won't be able to use a teleport or cast a portal, because the statues then will vanish and go back to statue form, replenishing their HP in full. Having to fight them again is not as enticing as it sounds, especially if you were close to kill them before, but as long as you go prepared with enough restorative items, you shouldn have an issue with this fight.

Once you're done with this, all that remains is the final fight, Baal.
