Sisters' Burial Grounds (Diablo II Quest)
This quest will become available after completing the Den of Evil, and can be activated by talking to Kashya. She will inform you that a corrupted Rogue named Blood Raven has been raising the dead as zombies and she must be stopped. Your mission is to defeat Blood Raven, which will, in turn, earn you Kashya's respect.
To find Blood Raven, you must travel to the Burial Grounds, located just off of the Cold Plains. Once there, you may want to kill all the skeletons, zombies, and hungry dead found at the outer edges of the Burial Grounds (outside the cemetery gates). This will ensure that there will be fewer creatures trying to surround and attack you while you take on Blood Raven in the center of the cemetery. Blood Raven moves around quite fast while shooting arrows and flame arrows at you, so a weapon or charm that adds cold damage will prove very useful here, since it will slow her down, thus making her easier to attack. Blood Raven can be found within the cemetery gates, surrounded by her army of Zombies and skeletons; in fact, she will continue to raise the dead as you battle her, so kill her as quickly as you can.
Once Blood Raven has been defeated, her death animation, which most quest bosses have, will kill any remaining undead monsters in the cemetery itself but not those in the perimeter of the zone. Return to Kashya for your reward. She will grant you access to her Rogue mercenaries for a fee, as well as give you a free mercenary if you have not previously had one.
Quest Activation Dialog
Kashya:"My Rogue scouts have just reported an abomination in the Monastery graveyard! Apparently, Andariel is not content to take only our living. Blood Raven, one of our finest captains in the battle against Diablo at Tristram, was also one of the first to be corrupted by Andariel. Now, you'll find her in the Monastery graveyard raising our dead as zombies! We cannot abide this defilement! If you are truly our ally, you will help us destroy her."
NPC Quest Dialog
Akara:"Blood Raven fought valiantly against Diablo in the catacombs beneath Tristram...She was never quite the same afterwards. It is now obvious she brought an evil influence back with her."
Charsi:"Blood Raven was the leader of a Rogue band that once fought Diablo at Tristram."
Gheed:"I'm sorry...The undead are bad for trade. I have a strict no-return policy."
Kashya:"Death has done nothing to weaken Blood Raven's combat skills. If anything, she's more deadly than ever."
Warriv:"Hmmm...How can one kill what is already dead?"
Akara:"If you fail to destroy Blood Raven, I fear that our Order will perish forever."
Charsi:"Akara felt something was wrong even before Andariel descended upon us. She feared that Blood Raven had stumbled upon some evil force beneath Tristram. I wish we had acted then..."
Gheed:"I wonder if that old gossip, Melra, is among the undead? Oh, she had dirt on everybody."
Kashya:"Each moment you delay adds another undead Sister to Blood Raven's army."
Warriv:"When the dead return to prey upon the living, it is a terror beyond understanding."
Akara:"Andariel must be made to pay for her sacrilege!"
Charsi:"Kashya wishes to reward you for your defeat of Blood Raven. I thank you, too, even though Blood Raven was once my friend."
Gheed:"Some of those gals weren't so nice the first time around."
Kashya:"I can hardly believe that you've defeated Blood Raven! Though she was once my closest friend, I pray that her tortured spirit remains banished forever. You have earned my respect, stranger...and the allegiance of the Rogues. I have placed several of my best warriors at your disposal."
Warriv:"You've done well, stranger. I hope all your efforts are worth it."
