The Upper Prison area screenshot.jpg

The Upper Prison is a area in Act 1. This area has no waypoint and is connected to The Lower Prison and Prisoner's Gate.

The Upper Prison contains two additional sub-areas: The Warden's Quarters and The Warden's Chambers. The door to the Warden's Quarters is randomly located in the Upper Prison and leads to the player's first encounter with Piety of Theopolis, an NPC who speaks and then vanishes. Beyond Piety is a trail of blood leading to the Warden's Chambers and the Brutus, Lord Incarcerator boss fight.

Defeating Brutus will unlock the door to The Prisoner's Gate. The waypoint in that area will also be activated, so you can optionally portal back to town before proceeding. After leaving The Upper Prison for Prisoner's Gate you won't be able to come back that way.
