I am Kormac, warrior of the templar order. If it is the Skeleton King you seek, then you will have to fight your way past Jondar. There is no reason we should hunt alone.
I often prefer to be alone. But I will make an exception for you...Barbarian Portrait.png
Agreed. Let us fight together.Demon Hunter Portrait.png
No, there is not.Monk Portrait.png
I suppose not. A strong spear at my side could prove helpful.Witch Doctor Portrait.png
Templar Portrait.png
Black magic bars our way...
But the will of a templar is stronger.

Find and Kill Jondar

You were a templar, Jondar! How could you succumb to this Coven?
Jondar Portrait.png
The Coven is my brotherhood now, Kormac! The powers we serve will soon rule this world!
Jondar Portrait.png
Please forgive me. My vision was clouded by the Coven's evil magic.

Thank you for your aid. I will go with you on your hunt for the Skeleton King, but there is one condition.
If we find the sacred tomes of my order, they are mine.
Very well. I have no need of books.Barbarian Portrait.png

That is agreeable. Though I wouldn't mind taking a look at them...Witch Doctor Portrait.png
