Once completing the Sisters' Burial Grounds quest and receiving a free Rogue mercenary as a reward from Kashya, Akara will direct you to Tristram in order to search for the Horadrim sage Deckard Cain for Akara believes he will provide some useful advice to combat the growing evil.

Here in the Stony Field lies a magical portal which leads directly to Tristram which can only be opened by activating the Cairn Stones. However, this must be done in a specific order, and the answer to this lies with the Tree of Inifuss. Searching for this ancient tree is the first step.

Found guarding the Cairn Stones will be Rakanishu, an extra fast lightning enchanted Carver (a Fallen variant). This unmistakable superunique along with its Carver minions is usually the fastest monster encountered so far.

The Moldy Tome can also be found here. It recounts the story of The Countess, who was buried alive. The tome is used to begin the Forgotten Tower quest, but it is not required to start the quest.
