Diablo and Baal have surely found the Temple City by now. They seek to free their Brother, Mephisto, who was imprisoned by the Horadrim in the Temple's Guardian Tower.
You must reach him before his Brothers do and prevent them from releasing Hatred upon the world.
- Normally best to go left: since Bremm Sparkfist and his minions are normally located inside entrance to center chamber or above it to right, it is more likely they can be avoided if they spawn in the latter location.
Our faith in you was well deserved. But Diablo has made his way to Hell; and it is likely that Baal followed him there.
Enter the Infernal Gate and kill the Lord of Terror before all is lost. Only then will our world be saved!
- Deckard Cain
- Upon killing Mephisto for the first time he has improved chances of dropping higher quality items. In Hell he also has chance to drop Charged Essence of Hatred required to transmute Token of Absolution in Horadric Cube, used to respecialise, reassigning attribute and skill points.
- Always drops Mephisto's Soulstone, requiring one inventory space to pick up. However, despite its importance to the plot, this is not strictly necessary: apparently Deckard Cain will pick it up and give it to character in Act 4 after talking to him.
- Approaching Infernal Gate from direction of Mephisto's original location will now cause bridge of bones to rise out of the blood pool, allowing character to use portal to travel to Act 4.
The Infernal Gate.
