Main Quest




Helping Out
Welcome to Devil's Crossing


XP, Iron, Rep

This is the opening Act 1 quest, received from Hangman Jarvis in Devil's Crossing at the beginning of the game.


Jarvis informs you that you were possessed by an Aetherial and sentenced to be hanged, as all "Taken" are, but the spirit fled your body before your life ran out, and you were allowed to live. Captain John Bourbon is the one responsible for sparing you, and he wishes to speak with you.



The captain is located in the courtyard of Devil's Crossing prison, a short distance from Hangman Jarvis. Talk to him, and he will explain that Something is reanimating the dead with Aetherial energy and that he would like you to put a stop to it.

After talking to Bourbon, head north across the bridge and make your way through the ruins of Lower Crossing, following the directions given by Bourbon. Eventually the Lower Crossing Riftgate can be found by a fork in the road, and activated. Follow the road left and up Burial Hill to the cave entrance.

Once you have entered The Burial Cave, find and kill the boss creature Kyzogg the Reanimator. He is located in the south-east corner of the cave, and can summon a number of minions; these are best thinned out or separated from Kyzogg.

After killing the Reanimator, report back to the Captain to claim the reward.


Normal Elite Ultimate
XP 350 19000 44000
Iron 300 2000 7500
Reputation +500 (Devil's Crossing)

After completing this quest, John Bourbon will offer you the Helping Out quest.

Also, Rook the Gatekeeper will now permit access to the prison interior and the NPCs who reside within.

Quest log
Hangman Jarvis has informed you that Captain John Bourbon was the one responsible for sparing your life from the noose.

The Captain is down the road, near the stone bridge, and wishes to speak with you.


  • Speak to Captain John Bourbon at Devil's Crossing
Captain Bourbon explained that the survivors at Devil's Crossing are barely enduring through the relentless attacks of the Dead.

He believes they are coming from the caves beneath Burial Hill and has put it upon you to investigate, in exchange for shelter at Devil's Crossing.

Head north across the bridge and through the ruins of Lower Crossing. Once past the stream, Burial Hill will be on the left where the road forks.


  • Enter the Cave under Burial Hill
A creature in the cave underneath Burial Hill is causing the Dead to rise!

Kill it and Devil's Crossing will get a needed respite from attacks.


  • Kill Kyzogg the Reanimator
The Reanimator is slain and the Dead should be slowed, for now.

Return to Captain John Bourbon with the good news.


  • Return to Captain John Bourbon
