Revenge of Gharbad

Where: Ancient Pyre, Southern Highlands Act I

Trigger: Speak with Gharbad

Mob Details: Dark Moon Clan Ghost, Ghostly Khazra Spearman, Spectral Khazra Shaman, Gharbad the Strong

Completion Details: Destroy the shamanic wards around the Khazra mummy / Defeat the khazra shaman / Kill Gharbad the Strong

This event takes place on the Ancient Pyre map tile which has a random chance to spawn in the Southern Highlands. The pyre is also home to other adventures and may not spawn Gharbad at all.

When it does spawn, the Ghost of Gharbad will be awaiting the player for his event. Speak with him to begin. Note that he sounds nothing like his Diablo I counterpart, but still tasks the player with helping, because he is too weak to do so on his own, even in spectral form.

The first phase is very simple: destroy two wards that are very close to Gharbad, and have barely any health. However, a handful of khazra ghosts will also spawn, and while they are not elite, they hit surprisingly hard. Use the pyre in the middle of the area to break line of sight with the ranged attackers if the hero is taking too much damage. A shaman will spawn with the ranged and melee goats, and is the objective for the second phase of the event. Kill him to move forward.

Speak with Gharbad once again to initiate the final phase of the event which is, of course, to kill him. However, the ghost of Gharbad the Weak quickly mutates into the living manifestation of Gharbad the Strong, a massive two-headed Khazra, and he is fairly strong. Gharbad has no special boss modifiers, but he does hit very hard in melee and has a knockback attack with extra health. Once he is defeated (again), the event will be complete.
