Sword of the Stranger

The man who fell from the sky remembers only a shattered sword of power. Find the pieces of the sword to restore his mind.

Start location

New Tristram, talk to Deckard Cain.

Deckard Cain
Tell me everything you remember, stranger. Every detail.
The Stranger
Falling... fire... a sword of great power. It was... part of me, but it shattered into three pieces as I fell.
Deckard Cain
It is vital that we find those pieces. I believe the sword made whole will restore your memory.
The goatmen are rampaging through the fields. Could the sword have anything to do with that?
Deckard Cain
Of course, of course! Just as the dead rose around the Stranger, the sword pieces drove the goatmen to madness.

The goatmen won't stand in my way. I'll get the sword.


▪ Go to the the Fields of Misery

▪ Search for the Khazra Den in the Fields of Misery

▪ Find the Glowing Sword Shard in the Khazra Den

▪ Kill the cultists surrounding the Glowing Sword Shard

Who are you to take what is mine?

Yours? I believe your are mistaken.
Regardless, I have claimed it. I am Maghda, and I lead this coven. The shard... is mine.

To Hell with you, witch.

▪ Take the Glowing Sword Shard

▪ Take the sword piece back to Cain

We are not the only ones seeking the sword. I had to take the first piece from a witch named Maghda and her crazed minions.
Uncle Deckard, they sound like those dark cultists you told me about.
Deckard Cain
Very good, Leah. You have been paying attention. Stranger, does any of this jar your memory?
The Stranger
I have no memory of this coven... but I sense a far darker shadow guiding its hand.
