Quest Walkthrough

Finishing this quest will require a bit of back-tracking. When you enter Kurast for the first time, you can go talk to Alkor. He will ask you to search the six tombs in Upper Kurast, the Bazaar, and the Causeway. Fortunately, we know that you only need to go into the Ruined Temple which is in the Bazaar. Inside, you’ll eventually meet up with Battlemaid Sarina. It’s recommended to clear everything else out before taking her on as you don’t want to be overwhelmed. That said, if you’ve dealt with everything Quest 3 had to offer, you should be fine.
