We’re back again for the continuation of the guide through Act 1t! This quest starts directly after The Fallen Star and is prompted by Leah, who has tasked the player character with finding her uncle, Deckard Cain. Find out more about The Legacy of Cain quest in the article below.
The Legacy of Cain Quest: An Overview on your Diablo 3 Account
The Legacy of Cain is quite longer than the first quest you took on your D3 account. Take the Waypoint in New Tristram back to The Old Ruins. Leah will open the entryway for you and follow you through it down the Old Tristram Road. You’ll encounter Zombies and Walking Corpses. You’ll arrive at Adria’s Hut and get a Checkpoint here. Inside her hut is a Hidden Cellar. Just follow Leah until the next scene.
Defeating Captain Daltyn on your Diablo 3 Account
As you approach a cauldron sitting over a blazing fire, a unique undead called Captain Daltyn will show up. He’s joined by three Zombies, which you should have no trouble killing. The Captain has a Frozen attack. He sets out multiple grenades that blast over a certain range, incurring harm and freezing players inside of it. Execute the zombies first and move out of range of the Captain’s explosives’ blast sweep so you will not get frozen. Once he is killed, Leah will hand you the key and Adria’s Journal. Leave the cellar, and you’ll be set upon by more Zombies. Advance down Old Tristram Road and into the Cathedral. You’ll get a checkpoint as you enter the level, and before you go down to Leoric’s Passage.
Leoric’s Passage and the Staff of Herding on your Diablo 3 Account
The Cathedral level can be challenging. Here you will face more enemies, such as the Carrion Bat, Grotesque, Ravenous Dead Risen, and Walking Corpses. They will attack in groups and waves, so be careful. You should explore this level thoroughly before going into Leoric’s passage. You can find Black Mushrooms here, which are essential for the Staff of Herding which grants you the access to Whimsyshire when you buy D3 account.
Headcleaver Boss Fight and Saving Deckard Cain on your Diablo 3 Account
As you make your way down to Leoric’s Passage, you’ll find Deckard Cain fighting some skeletons. After the short in-game sequence, you will have to confront Headcleaver and his Royal Henchmen. There are no special attacks here, but he does have a kick in addition to his melee attack that you have to dodge and evade.
Speak with Deckard Cain now and follow him back to New Tristram to conclude this quest.
