Jar of Souls is an event quest in Act I. It has a chance to appear in one of the false Defiled Crypts located in the Cemetery of the Forsaken. Players must engage in a "King of the Hill" type encounter with Skeletons and Skeletal Executioners for 1 minute.

The low XP reward for this quest is compensated by the fact that the spawned mobs give XP when killed.
