Speak with Deckard Cain
Deckard Cain The Skeleton King was once our beloved lord, Leoric. He was driven mad by Diablo’s evil.
He lost both of his sons–and his very soul–before he was finally defeated. Now it seems he’s risen to plague this land once again.
A sad tale, but I seek the fallen star and he stands in my way. Barbarian
A tragic story, but I cannot reach the fallen star until I face him. Demon Hunter
Nonetheless, the Skeleton King bars my path to the fallen star. Monk
Leoric should be in the Unformed Land, yet he stands between me and the fallen star. Witch Doctor
Leoric’s tale is sad, but I am here to find the fallen star and the Skeleton King stands in my way. Wizard
Deckard Cain The key to defeating him lies in his old crown. Seek out our blacksmith, Haedrig; he knows of its whereabouts.
Deckard Cain Leah, you should not dismiss the signs so lightly. Do you not believe the evidence of your own eyes?
Leah Horrors have visited Tristram before and it endured.
Deckard Cain But what of the texts? The Zakarum tomes warn of a falling star.
Leah Yes, you’ve been telling me about the texts since I was eight years old, Uncle. I just don’t think we should read too much into them.
