Battle with Mephisto.

This is the last dungeon in Act III and is reached by smashing the Compelling Orb in Travincal. On the third level of the Durance of Hate you will find Mephisto.


Of course this used to be the old Guardian Tower, watching over Mephisto (hence the name of the quest is "The Guardian").


Don't miss the Waypoint on Level 2 when descending the Durance.


Mephisto is found on the third level of the Durance of Hate and you need to kill him in order to access the Hell Gate, the portal to Act IV and Diablo himself. There is no prerequisite to the quest; just fight your way to Mephisto and the portal.


The portal is visible and situated in the middle of a lake of blood – it cannot be reached by teleports or barbarian leap attacks so the only way to reach it is to best Mephisto. Mephisto is a cold-based monster, so a high cold resistance is desirable when you come to fight him.

Beware of the remaining three High Council members – Bremm Sparkfist, Wyand Voidbringer and Maffer Dragonhand. Like their brethren in Travincal, they are powerful boss monsters but Bremm Sparkfist is perhaps the most powerful of the three as he has a collection of minions to battle alongside.


When you kill Mephisto, a bridge made of skeleton bones will rise from the blood lake, allowing you to access the portal and Act IV. There is no other reward for this quest, but loot drops from the Council Members and Mephisto are usually good.


Act IV will take your player into the depths of Hell and a showdown with Diablo himself.
