Siege on Harrogath (Diablo II Quest)
- "If you're here to defeat Baal, you must prove it!" -Larzuk
The North has long been a solid bastion against the Evils of the Burning Hells, its mountain passages lined with fortifications and its Barbarians at the ready to brutally crush all opposition. Times have changed, however, and Baal has slowly destroyed all traces of human civilization on his way to ultimate triumph over the denizens of Sanctuary. You must traverse the frigid, gory, battle-wasteland that holds Harrogath in bondage and separates you from your final confrontation with the Lord of Destruction. Shenk the Overseer awaits you behind the enemy lines, lashing his crude demonic magic to aid his minions.

Larzuk:"If you're here to defeat Baal, you must prove it! As we speak, Harrogath is under siege by Baal's demons. Catapults rain death just outside the town walls. Baal himself travels up the sacred mountain, having left in charge here one of his most vicious generals, Shenk the Overseer. A ruthless taskmaster, he lashes his own minions into suicidal frenzies on the battlefield. If you wish to prove yourself to us, destroy the monster, Shenk, that commands those infernal catapults outside Harrogath. If you manage to do this, return to me."
Anya:"You've proven your skill at rescuing fair maidens...but how are you at killing vicious beasts?"
Cain:':"I believe that stopping the siege on Harrogath is the only way for you to earn the trust of these people."
Larzuk:"Uh...Did I mention there were catapults?"
Nihlathak:"After so many have died, who are you to think you can accomplish what our proud warriors could not?"
Cain:':"I understand your reluctance, but now is the time to strike."
Larzuk:"What's the matter, hero? Questioning your fortitude? I know we are."
Nihlathak:"What are you still doing here? I thought you were going off to die. Go...Be quick about it."
Qual-Kehk:"So, you still live. You're either quick or a coward."
Anya:"I was starting to wonder how long it would take you to stop those beasts. Good job."
Larzuk:"You're an even greater warrior than I expected...Sorry for underestimating you. As a token of my appreciation, I will craft sockets into an item of your choosing, and from now on, you'll get the best price for all my wares."
Malah:"Oh...At last, the siege is ended. You truly are an angel. I thank you."
Nihlathak:"Ending the siege does not earn immediate respect, outsider. Respect only comes with sacrifice -- something I'm sure you know nothing of."
Qual-Kehk:"So...You managed to stop the siege. You are more powerful than I gave you credit for. You have rightfully earned my respect."
