Guide

This quest is mostly self-explanatory. You need to kill every monster inside the cave. Like most quests in Act I, this is technically optional, but the reward is worth the time investment.

Inside the cave, you’ll come up against Fallen, Fallen Shaman, Gargantuan Beasts, and Zombies. Your priority needs to be the Fallen Shaman because they will resurrect any Fallen that you kill. Taking them down quickly will make it much easier to clear the hordes. The Gargantuan Beasts can also cause some problems due to their relatively high health pool. Try to approach them in one-on-one combat if possible.

The boss of this location is a zombie named Corpsefire. The best way to deal with him is to pick off the other zombies with him, and then take him down when he’s by himself. Make sure to come with plenty of health potions in case he does a large amount of damage unexpectedly.

Once all of the enemies are down, you’ll hear some music play and see bright lights shine down on the cave. Use a Scroll of Town Portal (TP) to head back to the Rogue Encampment and talk to Akara. She will give you a free skill point and let you reset your stats and skills. You can only do this once per difficulty, so use it wisely. At this point, we’d also recommend purchasing a Tome of Town Portal from Akara. This will let you more easily stack TPs so that you don’t have to take up so much inventory space. If you didn’t find a belt in the Den of Evil, pick one up now as well. This will increase your survivability as you’ll have more potions at hand.

Easter Egg

There’s a cute Easter Egg in the Den; if there are fewer than five monsters remaining (few enough for the quest prompt to pop up) and a Fallen Shaman resurrects enough Fallen to increase the number above 5, the quest window will display, “Monsters remaining: 666.”

On a side-note, if you already have completed the quest, the level is instead named just “Cave” rather than “the Den of Evil”.
