ACT FOUR
The Light of Hope

  1. Speak to Itherael, and learn that Auriel, the Angel of Hope, has been captured by Rakanoth, the Lord of Despair. You need to save her!
  2. Go through the archway just past Itherael. This will take you through the first level of the Gardens of Hope.
    • The Armaddon is a powerful beast with mana and arcane power-draining bites and slam attacks. Will often be used as a mount for a Subjugator to make a Mounted Armaddon, combining its speedy firebombing and arcane damaging attacks with the Armaddon to make a truly fearsome creature.
    • Corrupted Angels use their hammers to hit with the full range of elemental magic. Their unholy shields will give them a strong resistance to an elemental attack for a duration when hit by one. And they have a very fast dash ability that they use to quickly get up close and personal with you.
    • Mallet Lords have four arms that can make very powerful slam attacks that are best avoided.
    • Morlu Invaders can revive themselves, so don’t stop hitting them when they fall to a kneeling position, else they’ll get right back up.
    • Oppressors are elite demons and masters of fire, able to attack with flaming breath and a flaming charge, along with melee mace attacks.
    • Vile Temptress is a high-level Succubus, complete with those red balls of death, and the ability to quickly leap away from your attacks.
  3. Seek out the Library of Fate, somewhere to the west.
    • Consider making a return for supplies before entering, as the Town Portal cannot be used once inside.
  4. Enter the Library of Fate and kill Rakanoth.
    • BOSS FIGHT: Rakanoth, Lord of Despair
      • Rakanoth has swords for arms, and he is superbly skilled at using them in melee.
      • He will combine his teleport ability with a spinning sword attack that is especially damaging, so stay on the move.
      • He will often teleport to the center of the room and shoot a volley of ice bombs outward. They don’t have much range, so dodge or run away from them.
      • He will also summon Soul Devourers to aid him, so beware their long tongue attacks and knockback strikes.
  5. With Rakanoth dead, destroy Auriel’s Prison, then speak to her to gain the power needed to remove the Corrupt Growths blocking your way onward.
  6. Go through Auriel’s portal to return to the first level of the Gardens of Hope. Be prepared!
  7. Traverse the Gardens of Hope, destroying all the Corrupt Growths, and locating the Hell Rift.
  8. Enter the Hell Rift and seek out the Rift Oculus.
  9. Destroy the Rift Oculus, after killing its guardian, the unique Mallet Lord named Hammermash.
    • Hammermash has the lightning element added to his already very powerful slam attacks.
  10. Take Auriel’s portal to return to the first level of the Gardens of Hope.
  11. Locate and go through the portal to the second level of the Gardens of Hope.
  12. As on the first level, traverse this level of the Gardens of Hope, destroying all the Corrupt Growths and locating the Hell Rift portal.
    • Blessed Chance – a random Sigil Room where you’ll battle through Demon Marauders and Shadow Vermin to get to an Exquisite Chest.
    • Holy Sanctum – a random Sigil Room where you’ll work out the solution to a floor tile puzzle while fending off Armored Destroyers (frenzy attacks) to get to an Exquisite Chest.
    • Sacellum of Virtue – a random Sigil Room where you’ll battle through Demon Marauders and Oppressors to get to an Exquisite Chest.
  13. Enter the Hell Rift and seek out the Rift Oculus.
  14. Destroy the Rift Oculus, after killing its guardian, the unique Mallet Lord named Sledge.
    • Sledge’s element is fire, so prepare accordingly. Also, it will explode in a fiery blast when killed.
  15. Use Auriel’s portal to return to the second level of the Gardens of Hope.
  16. Find and speak to Tyrael near the portal to the Crystal Colonnade.
  17. Enter the portal to the Crystal Colonnade. The Light of Hope quest complete!
