Mehtan the Necromancer
Mehtan the Necromancer is an NPC (non-player character) that appears in Diablo III. It seems to me that some players are confusing Mehtan with other well known necromancers in Diablo lore (such as Zayl or Mendeln/Kalan).
Mehtan the Necromancer is a new character. You can find Mehtan the Necromancer in two different bounties/events in Diablo III.
There are many small, random, quests that a player can find in Act V of Diablo III. Look for a brightly lit doorway, and go inside. Some kind of event will start.
Behind one of those brightly lit doorways is an event called “Cozy Bookstore”. It caught my attention because I love to read, have a tendency to buy more books than I can reasonably consume, and used to work in a big chain bookstore.
Lady Victoria and the House of Deep Sorrow
Anyone who has played through Act V of Diablo III will find that many of the buildings include smaller side quests. If you are playing through Story Mode, you can choose to ignore them and stick with the main quests, or to see how many you can find. Some of these side quests turn up as Bounties in Adventure Mode.
Overall, the stories presented in these little, randomly appearing, optional objectives paint a picture of how bleak and dangerous Westmarch has become. Each shows what happened to random people who were unfortunate enough to be living in Westmarch when Malthael and his minions came and started ripping out people’s souls.
One of the stories that grabbed my attention is in an objective called “House of Deep Sorrow”. It is short, and fairly simple to complete. The implications of what this short story reveals are very disturbing, (even in context of Diablo III).

The Queen’s Dessert
The Queen’s Dessert is an event in Diablo III (that can also come up as a random Bounty). The first time I encountered this event was during Season 3. I’m not entirely certain if this new event is only accessible for Seasonal characters, or whether it has been added to the non-season part of the game as well.
It is one of a few new events that require a player to search for a specific number of targets. In The Queen’s Dessert event, the player needs to destroy 6 Royal Cocoons and slay the spiders that are guarding each Royal Cocoon. The screenshots you see in this blog were taken on April 11, 2015.

The Family of Rathe
The Family of Rathe event can be found in the Decaying Crypt in Act I. Players can start looking for it somewhere in the Fields of Misery. This event can also be offered to players as a Bounty.
The event starts when a player encounters a ghost girl named Willa Rathe. She can be found in the Decaying Crypt Level 2. If you are using the Templar as your follower when this event pops up, he will make some comments about spirits. The screenshots you see in this blog were taken on April 8, 2013.
