Dropped by Adria in the Hidden Camp.[e]
Part Text Found on Quest
1 Murderer. Torturer. Monster. These were the titles bestowed upon Zoltun Kulle by the Horadrim. Though it cost them dearly, they killed the wizard for his crimes against nature and sealed his broken corpse within a shadow realm. It seems they were afraid he might return. -- Adria Betrayer of the Horadrim

Part Text Found on Quest
1 I felt no fear when they sealed the tomb before me, only a sense of peace as my mind drifted away into the darkness. It seems I opened my eyes only seconds later and beheld the chamber in ruins, half-buried in sand. I have left everything behind... Only hope guides me now. -- Eirena None

Looted from Iron Wolf Captain's body in Alcarnus (map) in Act II.[e]
Part Text Found on Quest
1 Another sunset, and Alcarnus is still safe from the sudden madness that plagues Caldeum.

Leah's Journals[edit | edit source]

Parts 8 - 12 are found in Act II in the Hidden Camp on the table. [e]
Part Text Found on Quest
8 Caldeum - everything Uncle Deckard left me leads to this place. It's strange; I first met him here when I was only a child... and now his loss feels heavier than ever. He was right about everything all along... We have to stop Belial before it's too late. Shadows in the Desert
9 The city has many secrets, and I still remember most of them. I can get into Caldeum through the sewers if I avoid the Imperial Guard. While I'm out, my friend has sworn to take down Maghda. It won't bring Uncle Deckard back, but we'll all be relieved when she's gone. The Road to Alcarnus
10 After all this time, my mother is alive! I couldn't be happier, and yet it's still hard to accept that she never sent word to me or Uncle Deckard. She said that she wanted to keep me safe, but I just wish I'd known... Well, at least I have her now. Unexpected Allies
11 My mother has been teaching me magic and how to control my power, but I feel like I'm constantly disappointing her. She says that I have a gift, but it doesn't feel that way. Maybe it will improve if I keep practicing. For now, we are getting closer to the Black Soulstone, and that's what really matters. Blood and Sand
12 We have the Black Soulstone at last, despite Zoltun Kulle's betrayal. I always knew he couldn't be trusted. Fortunately, we were able to defeat him and retrieve the stone. I learned that my mother had secretly bound the fallen Lords of Hell to it... I just wonder why she didn't tell me. The Scouring of Caldeum

Andariel, the Maiden of Anguish[edit | edit source]

Found in Cain's Lost Satchel at various points in Act II.[e]
Part Text Found on Quest
1 Andariel was the only female Evil. She aided the Lesser Evils for many years, but eventually she lost faith in their plots. Two decades ago, she chose to help Diablo during his resurgence and seized the Citadel of the Sightless Eye. Ultimately, she perished at the hands of brave heroes. -- Deckard Cain Any

Azmodan, the Lord of Sin[edit | edit source]

Found in Cain's Lost Satchel at various points in Act II.[e]
Part Text Found on Quest
1 The Valrous manuscript lists Azmodan as the best battlefield commander of all demons, having defeated the angels many times in the Eternal Conflict across Pandemonium and the Prime Evils in the demonic civil war. If the Lord of Sin ever assaults our realm, we truly have much to fear. -- Deckard Cain Any

Baal, the Lord of Destruction[edit | edit source]

Found in Cain's Lost Satchel at various points in Act II..[e]
Part Text Found on Quest
1 Baal was the most brash and reckless of the Prime Evils. After the Dark Exile, he was contained within the Horadrim Tal Rasha and entombed. Centuries later, Diablo freed Baal, who then corrupted the Worldstone to devastating effect for the barbarians who lived near Mount Arreat. The heroes killed Baal shortly afterwards. -- Deckard Cain Any

Belial, the Lord of Lies[edit | edit source]

Found in Cain's Lost Satchel at various points in Act II.[e]
Part Text Found on Quest
1 Belial, Lord of Lies, is the most elusive of the seven Evils and is a master of deceit. It is said that he manipulated Azmodan into revolt against the Prime Evils. This began the Burning Hells' civil war, which ended with the Dark Exile of the Prime Evils to our mortal realm. -- Deckard Cain Any

Diablo, the Lord of Terror[edit | edit source]

Found in Cain's Lost Satchel at various points in Act II..[e]
Part Text Found on Quest
1 Diablo was the youngest of the Prime Evils, but I found him the most dangerous, for his power over terror left him incapable of feeling fear. Though he had easily possessed and corrupted many humans, Diablo's essence was finally trapped in a soulstone and banished to the unfathomable Abyss twenty years ago. -- Deckard Cain Any

Duriel, the Lord of Pain[edit | edit source]

Found in Cain's Lost Satchel at various points in Act II.[e]
Part Text Found on Quest
1 Duriel is the twin of Andariel. I believe that they conspired together to assist Diablo in releasing Mephisto and Baal, though they had both supported the Lesser Evils in the past. The Lord of Pain was found guarding Baal's prison - the tomb of Tal Rasha - when he was slain by heroes. -- Deckard Cain Any

The Seven Lords of Hell[edit | edit source]

Found in Cain's Lost Satchel at various points in Act II.[e]
Part Text Found on Quest
1 It is with some reluctance that I write on the seven Lords of Hell, for they are the greatest of the demons, and even whispering their names seems to poison the air around me. They are divided into the Lesser Evils (Belial, Azmodan, Duriel, and Andariel) and the Prime Evils (Mephisto, Baal, and Diablo. -- Deckard Cain Any

Mephisto, the Lord of Hatred[edit | edit source]

Found in Cain's Lost Satchel at various points in Act II.[e]
Part Text Found on Quest
1 The evil of Mephisto, Lord of Hatred, was so pervasive that even after he had been defeated and entombed in a soulstone, his demonic essence oozed upwards into Travincal and corrupted the Zakarum priests. Though he fell to the same heroes who killed his brothers, I fear for us should he ever return. -- Deckard Cain Any

A Love Letter[edit | edit source]

Found in a Keepsake Box in the Dahlgur Oasis.[e]
Part Text Found on Quest
1 From the pages of Solan, exalted poet of Kehjistan: My love rises out of the oasis like a willow. Let me nourish her like a pool of cool water. Let me wind myself up her curves and hollows like fingers in ivy, and climb her shaded branches to taste of her fruit. -- Solan Any

Necromancer's Log[edit | edit source]

Given by Mehtan the Necromancer in the Stinging Winds.[e]
Part Text Found on Quest
1 Two decades ago, my mentor faced the forces of evil and emerged victorious. I cannot hope to surpass his achievements, but I will try to bring balance to the raging forces that threaten ot tear the world asunder in these days. The spirits are restless near Caldeum, I must quiet them. -- Mehtan the Necromancer The Restless Sands

The Imperial Guard's Orders[edit | edit source]

Crumbling Journal[edit | edit source]

Found on skeletal remains on the ground in the Desolate Sands (map).
Part Text Found on Quest
1 My mother told me not to join the mages' army. I should have listened. In the morning they're sending the infantry against the Vizjerei. I don't know how we're supposed to survive. Maybe we're not. It's so beautiful here. Maybe if I hid in the trees, they wouldn't notice me. -- Mage Clan Soldier Blood and Sand

Poltahr's Notes[edit | edit source]

Found in the Chamber of the Lost Idol (map).[e]
Part Text Found on Quest
1 I never thought I'd become a treasure hunter, but I also never thought my family's fortunes would sink so low. Yesterday I heard a nobleman asking about The Rygnar Idol - an artifact that belonged to the great mage Zoltun Kulle. If I can retrieve it, my family will never go hungry again. -- Poltahr The Rygnar Idol

Lyndo's Journal[edit | edit source]

Dropped from Garot's Corpse on the Ancient Device in Desolate Sands.
Part Text Found on Quest
1 We have found the key to the ancient device, but I fear that these treasures will cost us our lives. At least my brother and I have made it this far, and we are still alive. Dare we use this machine? -- Lyndo Any

Farming for Lyndo's Journal[edit | edit source]


It's easiest to farm this in Adventure Mode.

  1. Restart the game over and over until Desolate Sands of Act II has the Bounty "The Ancient Devices".
  2. Each bounty run allows for activating the device four times!

It's much more difficult to collect the ten unique activations in Campaign Mode:

1. Set the Checkpoint

  1. Start quest #8 The Black Soulstone > Realm of Shadow.
  2. Teleport to the waypoint Archives of Zoltun Kulle.
  3. Head south-west and towards the exit to Desolate Sands.
  4. The Checkpoint is located right before the exit.

2. Repeat from the Checkpoint

  1. Take the exit to Desolate Sands.
  2. Head south-east to the end of the bridge.
  3. Head straight south to check if the ancient device is located at spawn #1.
  4. If it's not there:
    1. Teleport to the waypoint Desolate Sands using the map.
    2. Head a little bit north to check if the ancient device is located at spawn #2.
      It's just a very short walk until you see the stairs that lead to the device (if it's there).
    3. If it's not there:
      1. Use the waypoint and teleport to Hidden Camp. That teleportation is instant. Don't use the map or a city portal.
  5. Leave the game. That's also instant if done from Hidden Camp.
  6. Resume the game, go back to the checkpoint and try again.

Special Notes:

  • Don't worry if the waypoint Desolate Sands is sometimes far away from spawn #2. If the ancient device is located at spawn #2 then the waypoint is usually located directly south of it.
  • Try to remember how the area around the waypoint Desolate Sands looks like when the ancient device is there (i.e. at spawn #2), and when it's not there. With a little practice you can tell whether it's there even without having to move away from the waypoint to check for the stairs.
  • If you can already see the waypoint on the minimap while checking out spawn #1 then there's likely no ancient device at spawn #2 so you can just skip it and leave the game immediately for the next try.
