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 3, The Blackened Temple, which will see you taking on Travincal's Zakarum High Council, a group of evil demons guarding the entrance to Mephisto's lair.


Diablo 2 Resurrected, Act III: The Blackened Temple

Quest Name: The Blackened Temple

Area Level

Travincal: 24 (Normal), 54 (Nightmare), 82 (Hell)

Unlocked By: Completing Quest Four or entering the Kurast Causeway, given by Ormus.

Once you arrive at Travincal you must find the Zakarum High council, a group of demons that guard the gates of the Durance of Hate, Mephisto's lair, locked by a magical Compelling orb. One of the High council members has the final piece you need to create the weapon to smash the orb, the Khalim's Flail. Since you don't know which one has it, you need to kill them all


The High Council has six members, three of which you will face here, called Ismail Vilehand, Geleb Flamefinger, and Toorc Icefist. They can be extremely annoying to defeat, so if you can afford to pick them one by one, the better. Again, go well prepared and don't be reckless, because things can go south very quickly.

After you defeat them use the Horadric Cube to transmute all the pieces, and now with Khalim's Will in your power, you must smash the Compelling Orb with this weapon if you want to get access to the Durance of Hate. Prepare yourself as much as you need, because Mephisto is next.
