Look for any knowledge about The Pale Man, and when you find it, inform Lorath.

Continuing with the story from The Spreading Darkness, you will have to explore the Orbei Monastery with Lorath. After exploring the Monastery, you will have to defeat the Eidolon of Orbei. When he is defeated, pick up his loot which will help you understand the goals of Elias, AKA The Pale Man.

3. Whittling Sanity

During the Whittling Sanity quest, you will have to go to Abahru Canyon and meet with Lorath. Lorath will close a few Hell Rifts while you defend him. After that, you will have to confront Genbar, the Shrine-Keeper. Once he is defeated, look for clues, and the quest will be completed.

10. Descent Into Flame

Inside the temple, you will have to defeat a bunch of enemies. You’ll have to go through the Hall of Hatred and Hall of Destruction. Then you’ll have to defeat a miniboss Malach, Master of Flame. After a little progress, there will be a cutscene, after which you will have to defeat Brol, The Tyrant King. Defeating him will complete the quest.

11. Loose Threads

With The Tyrant King defeated, you’ll have to locate Lorath. You’ll get to interact with Taissa. She will tell you where to find Elias. After talking with her, speak with Lorath to discuss your plans, and that will complete the quest.

12. Oasis Of Memories

When you reach the destination to start the quest, talk with Lorath. Your goal is to interact with people until you get someone to guide you. You’ll have to locate an Old man who you’ll find Argentek Riverbank. Locate and interact with him to guide you in your search. That will complete the quest.

13. Flesh From Bone

With Lorath and your guide, go through the sandstorm. You’ll have to survive the dangerous sandstorm and fight off enemies. All while staying near to Meshif. Once you reach Outer Gardens, the quest will be complete.

14. Beneath The Mask

During the quest ‘Beneath The Mask,’ Lorath will ask Meshif to stay outside while you both look for Elias. You’ll learn that Elias has acquired the Sightless Eye in The Outer Gardens. He will take you into the palace. And after the conversation ends, the quest will be complete.

15. Piercing The Veil

Once inside the Palace, you will have to locate Elias. You’ll find Elias in the Palace after searching for him. You’ll have to fight and defeat him. After that, there will be a second fight where he will summon a demon. It will be a tough fight, so make sure that you are prepared before going to fight him. Once defeated, Lorath will pick up the Sightless Eye and the Outer Gardens and meet with Meshif. That will complete the quest.

16. Exhumed Relics

During the final quest of Act 3, you will have to meet with Lorath at the Forsaken Chapel to investigate the Sightless Eye. Once you’ve made it there, you’ll have a cutscene where you will interact with Lorath. After that long cutscene, Act 3 will end.

How Long Does Act 3 Take To Beat In Diablo 4?

The amount of time Diablo 4 Act 3 Quests will take to complete will be different from one player to another. When heading over to Reddit, we learned that a lot of the players consider Act 3 to be one of the longest Acts in the game.

Now again, remember that it all depends from player to player. But when you’re considering the fact that there are a ton of side quests and points of interest, you’ll be spending a lot of time here.

If you were fully focusing on the Main quests, then we have a somewhat confirmed number. For us, completing Act 3 took anywhere from five to six hours. During that time, we watched all cutscenes and listened to all conversations. If you were to rush through it all, then it would surely take a lot less time than it took us.

So, to give a final answer, how long it takes will depend on the players. If you were to rush through each and everything, it would surely take less than or around 4 hours of gameplay. But if you watched every cutscene and listened to all conversations, then it takes up to 6 hours of gameplay. Lastly, for the players that love to complete everything, the whole of Act 3 can take as long as they make it.

With that, I conclude my guide on Diablo 4 Act 3 quests. If you haven’t reached Level 20 for Act 3, consider reading our Diablo 4 XP Farm guide. Here is the list of all Diablo 4 Strongholds and Dugeons with their location. Be sure to check out our Diablo 4 Beginners Guide.
