Rite of Passage (Diablo II Quest)
- "Every time I hear of you, warrior, your deeds become more legendary." -Qual-Kehk
With Nihlathak's betrayal complete and the Relic of the Ancients in the vile hands of the Lord of Destruction, you must now follow Baal to the summit of Mount Arreat and stop him before he achieves his evil purpose. The Relic lends its bearer safe passage past the sentients of the summit, the Ancients. One who does not carry the Relic, however, must face them in battle, as it is written. You must venture through the remaining frozen caverns of the mountain halls to reach the summit and will fight many terrible demons and Undead left in Baal's trail and then ascend the peak to fight beings from the legends of the Barbarians.

Qual-Kehk:"Every time I hear of you, warrior, your deeds become more legendary. But take heed. You are approaching the very summit of Mount Arreat. I have never dared venture there. It is sacred -- our most holy place. The legends say it is guarded by the Ancient Ones, who block the path of all who are unworthy. Your reputation here does not matter...It will be the Ancients who determine your worthiness. Good luck."
Malah:"By reaching the summit, you cease being just a simple warrior. When you come back, you will be far more."
Ancients:"We are the spirits of the Nephalem, the Ancient Ones. We have been chosen to guard sacred Mount Arreat, wherein the Worldstone rests. Few are worthy to stand in its presence; fewer still can comprehend its true purpose. Before you enter, you must defeat us."
Cain:':"We have come too far to be defeated now, my friend. I have seen you complete many difficult quests. Though this may be your greatest trial, it is not beyond your reach."
Larzuk:"You've walked on the burial grounds of our greatest ancestors. I'm not sure whether I should bow before you or revile you for committing sacrilege. Tread lightly when you walk with gods."
Anya:"You stand before me a worthy hero -- and on you rests the last hope of our people. Bear it well, warrior."
Cain:':"You have proven yourself to these people. They look to you as their warrior, their champion."
