Around 2:30 in the morning, I decided to see if I could finish off Act IV (Normal difficulty) in Diablo III. After all, I’ve been told that Act IV is “short”. Yeah… not so much. I didn’t finish Act IV this time, but, I did pick up more achievements and I got to do and see parts of the game I’d never experienced before.
Here’s my Barbarian, Zeta, and the Templar. They started out just a little bit before this point. Zeta is at level 30. They are talking to Itherael, the archangel of Fate.
Itherael: I am Itherael, archangel of Fate. It is my duty to record what is and what will be within the Scroll of Fate. But you, nephalem – you are not in the scroll. Your fate is unwritten.
Zeta is as impatient as I am to finally fight Diablo.
Zeta: Then I shall write my destiny in Diablo’s blood! You can watch all of creation burn, or you can help me now.

Sin The Slayer
Library of Fate – where Diablo gives you a big hint that you will be fighting Rakanoth soon.
Diablo: Rakanoth, do not fail me, or your fate will be the same as Iskatu’s and my brothers’.
Rakanoth – The Lord of Despair
It took me two tries to kill Rakanoth.
Killing him got me Don’t Worry: Kill Rakanoth before killing any of his minions.
I also got Angel’s Bane: Kill Rakanoth on Normal difficulty.
Talk to Auriel, after setting her free from her prison in the Library of Fate.
Auriel: With my blessing, you can now dispel Diablo’s corruption. It hides the rifts which bring his cursed servants to this hallowed place. The rifts must be closed.
Here is a nice drawing of Tyrael – and a good place to end this blog.
