The Reign of the Black King quest is the next quest we will cover in our walkthrough for newbie D3 account holders. In this quest you will get the Templar follower. You will also face the infamous Skeleton King as well as a chance to unlock some fun achievements.
Getting some help on your Diablo 3 Account
The Reign of the Black King quest is given by Deckard Cain once you have finished the Fallen Star. Once you have the quest, head to the Cathedral Garden. The quickest way to get there is by using a waypoint in the town. From the garden, head into Leoric’s Passage, then make your way to the third level of the Cathedral. As you make your way on your Diablo 3 account, you will face Tomb Guardians, Skeletons and Unburied.
Upon arriving on the third level, you will encounter Dark Cultists sacrificing someone for a ritual. Rescue this person and he will reveal himself to be Kormac the Templar. Help him find his gear and he will tell you about Jondar. Locate and get revenge on this fallen Templar and Kormac will offer his services to you.
Jars and pillars on your Diablo 3 Account
Regardless if you take Kormac with you, head down to the fourth level and into the Royal Crypts. Here you will find jars upon jars of ashes. If you are able to destroy 1,000 of these, you can unlock the Jars of Destruction achievement. Further on you will see a glowing sword. Interact with it to view a cutscene.
After viewing the scene, head forward until you Leoric appears amongst four pillars. Here Skeletons will be continually summoned by the pillars. To continue with the quest, you will need to destroy the four pillars. If you can destroy all four simultaneously, you can unlock the Destroyer of Destiny achievement. If you buy D3 account recently, this may not be possible however.
Diablo 3 Account holders versus Leoric
Past the pillars and deeper into the crypts, you will find an ornate door. Heading inside will lock the door which will not open until the Skeleton King is dead. Push forward into the Crypt of the Skeleton King and watch the cutscene. Afterwards, place Leoric’s Crown on the king. This will reanimate the Skeleton King and start the fight.
After defeating Leoric, head into the Desolate Chamber that opens up. Follow the Stranger found within to a waypoint and travel back to Deckard Cain in Tristram. Talking with him will end the Reign of the Black King quest.
