Talk to Sin in Highgate about the Beast and what to do.

Sin needs you to find some Trarthan PowderTrarthan Powder"Blow it all down! The emperor must have his gems, no matter the cost!" and Basilisk AcidBasilisk AcidNobility once thought to capture the Basilisks and keep them as exotic pets.
This only served to fatten the vileness of their hearts, and with a hateful
acid that festered inside, the creatures became soured to their very bones.
so he can burn a new entrance into the Beast. Search the Refinery and Boiling Lake for these ingredients.


Sin: The Dark Ember remains nestled deep within the putrid flesh of my dead Beast. With many of Highgate’s tunnels now collapsed, we must forge another way inside. I have divined one weak point in the Beast's flank, an ancient wound wrought by that Vaalish overreacher, Doryani.

The wound was healed shut by a thick membrane but the right decoction should dissolve the tissue and allow us inside. Of course, for a cordial of such potency I shall require two ingredients of utmost rarity.

First, our viscous concoction shall require Basilisk Acid, a princely poison which drips from the caustic heart of the Basilisk, and Trarthan Powder, an explosive substance oft used in the mining of Virtue gems.

With these two bitter harvests, I shall brew something worthy of eroding the membrane of my decaying pet.

. Now you just need to find some Trarthan PowderTrarthan Powder"Blow it all down! The emperor must have his gems, no matter the cost!" in the Refinery and then give the two ingredients to Sin.


Sin: You have done well, but our concoction requires both Acid and Powder. Return to me when you have collected the second partner in our corrosive duo.


You have found some Trarthan PowderTrarthan Powder"Blow it all down! The emperor must have his gems, no matter the cost!". Now deliver it to Sin.


Sin: And so my mistakes are put to rest and the mighty General has fallen. We honour them both with this brew...


Sin: Now that l have both ingredients, I shall brew us a nice cup of what we need. There has never been a substance more corrosive than this, apart from my dear Garukhan's sarcastic wit.

Let us meet soon at the blood pools surrounding the Lesion, and from there we shall burn ourselves a pathway into the Belly of the Beast.


Meet Sin at the Quarry, where he will burn open a new entrance into the Belly of the Beast.


Sin: Here we stand, amidst the coagulating remnants of my creation... Funny isn't it? Once I placed my Beast on a pedestal as my pride and joy, yet now I send you to breach the hull of my pet’s fouling black core.

I have brewed for us a potion from the remnants of our harvesting hunt. I shall apply this fermentation to the weakened membrane and meet you within the black core where we shall further our agenda.


Sin has burned open a new entrance into the The Belly of the Beast. Enter, and meet Sin at the Black Core.

Talk to Sin to manifest the Depraved Trinity.


Sin: The souls of these three continue to surprise us! Quickly now, the hearts have become doorways. Enter in, complete our mission, though I cannot say exactly what you will find on the other side.


Sin: At last, our trio joins to become one foul spirit. Destroy that creature of darkness and let us be rid of this place!


You have killed the Depraved Trinity. Now talk to Lilly to gain access to Act 10.


Lilly Roth: Well, I suppose you’ll be wanting us to ferry you over to Oriath… take care of that nasty cannibal god, Kitava, once and for all?

Well, we’d be glad to oblige. There be plenty of treasures in ruined Theopolis just sitting there for the taking, I’m sure.

Say the words and we’ll set the sails.
