A dwelling in Alcarnus

Alcarnus is a remote small town in the Borderlands of the Kehjistani Empire.



The Nephalem in Alcarnus

Alcarnus was established c. 885, when ore was discovered in the Stinging Winds. Alcarnus was established as the center of mining in the area, with several other smaller settlements springing up in its wake.[1]

During the rule of Emperor Hakan II, its population was massacred by the Dark Coven. Some refugees managed to escape to the imperial capital of Caldeum.[2] Later, the Nephalem arrived and rid the town of the Coven, along with rescuing surviving prisoners of the cult.[3]


Alcarnus appears as a zone in Act II of Diablo III. It is accessed through the Road to Alcarnus.
