Entering Travincal.

Travincal is the destination of the second last waypoint in Act III. It is here that the Council Members are found, and also here you will find the Compelling Orb, which must be destroyed in order to gain access to the Durance of Hate.

You'll definitely have to clear this map, since you need to kill all Council Members to complete The Blackened Temple quest.

By now you should have pieced together Khalim's Will as well, and you can use that to destroy the Compelling Orb. When the orb is smashed, the people of Kurast should slowly regain normality from Mephisto's power, and you are able to enter the Durance of Hate, where he resides.

Level Information

Kurast Levels

Kurast is so big it is represented in multiple levels in Diablo II, even though other great cities like Lut Gholein instead has been shrunken to a small town-sized area. This is how it is presented in D2:

  • Kurast Docks - Separated from the main town, by the great river that runs out to the Twin Seas.
  • Lower Kurast - Outer sprawl of the city. Overrun by jungle, monster and fanatics.
  • Kurast Bazaar - Former trading district of Kurast. Rich area.
  • Sewers - A must in any larger city, and classical Diablo dungeoneering.
  • Upper Kurast - The finer living areas of Kurast. Rich people accomodations.
  • Kurast Causeway - A handy massive road within the city for quick access to Travincal.
  • Travincal - The holy city within the city. Compare it to the Vatican in Rome.
