                                My Experience With Act 3

                                When I started Act 3, I thought it would be boring since I just had to find Elias. However, the number of dungeons and boss battles along the way surely made this Act worthwhile, especially with the entire walk through the sandstorm with Lorath.

                                This Act also strengthened my player’s bond with Lorath and shed some light on Lorath as a character. This is one of the few Acts that sees Lorath in action alongside the player.

                                Though exploring dungeons and clearing hordes was a long process, it was always entertaining due to the convoluted storyline that kept me on my seat’s edge. But just so you don’t have to deal with the process of finding clues and wandering, I compiled this walkthrough on all act 3 quests. I hope it helps you guys a lot, and be sure to comment down your strategy for the quests.
