Leah's Journal, Part 8

When you first arrive in Act II and start the quest Shadows in the Desert, check the right corner of the Hidden Camp for the new spawn location of Leah's Book, with more journals becoming available later in the chain. Activating it now will drop part 8 of her journal.

In this journal, Leah describes her concerns over defeating Baal and the still recent loss of her uncle.

The Seven Lords of Hell

This journal is the first in a series of books to drop out of the special container labeled Cain's Lost Satchel. These bags are scattered everywhere throughout Act II and can be found in any location and yield the same results depending how far down the chain you are in terms of journals found. In this case, the first Satchel found during my playthrough was at the Secret Altar in the Howling Plateau which is traveled through during the quest Shadows in the Desert. Any location which can potentially spawn a satchel of Cain's can also be farmed repeatedly via making new games for all the journals.

Fuad's Journal

This journal is found within the Howling Plateau, inside a randomly spawning location. In the picture to the right, you will see a map showing the look and size of the location along with where it spawns in the region. Basically it will be a large cultist camp with a cellar door that can be opened to reveal an entrance to Faud's Cellar. Head into the cellar and kill the unique, vampiric mob within and the journal will fall from him.

Eirena's Journal

At the end of the quest Shadows in the Desert, when you aquire the Enchantress as your follower, her first few conversation options will open up to you. If she is not currently following you, head back to town to talk to her, otherwise right click her portrait and go to talk. Start the conversation Eirena's Journey and hear it out to the end to automatically receive Eirena's Journal.

Leah's Journal, Part 9

Check back at the Hidden Camp in the right corner of the map again for the next part in Leah's journal, during the quest The Road to Alcarnus after hitting the Find Khasim Outpost checkpoint, having just crossed the bridge at the beginning. Leah talks a bit about the secrets of the city she still remembers from her travels with Deckard.

Larra's Diary

In the Black Canyon Mines region, there is a location which can spawn called the Deserted Cellar you will need to find. There are 2 possible spawns of this cellar,a southern and northern one, both of which when they do appear, show up in the same location every time. The northern Deserted Cellar is the one you want, which spawns in one of two manners, one which is a cultist transforming into a unique mob named Hurax.

The second instance of the northern cellar, which is the one you are looking for, will be mostly empty. Check in the corner for Larra who will be hiding under some debris at first. After talking momentarily, she will come out and speak more to you. After her conversation with you, the journal is automatically added to your inventory.

Note: If you find the Blood Cellar has spawned leave the game and remake, as both Blood Cellar and Deserted Cellar cannot spawn at once. Also, it's best to use the checkpoint right as you cross the bridge during the quest The Road to Alcarnus to farm for this journal.

Belial, The Lord of Lies

The second book in the series of eight to drop from the Cain's Satchel packs found all throughout Act II. This pack always spawns in the Stinging Winds, just before entering the Khasim Outpost and directly south of the waypoint. Like with the rest of the books in this chain and all of the Cain's Satchels, it does not matter where you find them, as all 8 books will drop from any of them, just in order. Each possible location that spawns on of these can be farmed for all 8.

Azmodan, the Lord of Sin

The third book in the series of Cain's Satchel's journals, is the book covering Azmodan. The next possible stop along the way to find a satchel unless farming a specific location is within The Ruins, a dungeon that can spawn in the Stinging Winds region. While not a guaranteed source, it is a pretty common occurrence. In my own run, the satchel was found on level 2 right next to the portal back to the Stinging Winds.

Necromancer's Log

This journal drops from an NPC named Mehtan, who is a necromancer that starts the event, The Restless Sands, which takes randomly spawns in the Stinging Winds region. You can find more information about the event and locating on the guide linked. After completing the event, the Necromancer's log will fall right by Mehtan's feet.

Poltahr's Notes

In the Stinging Winds region, there is a randomly spawning event and dungeon, the Chamber of the Lost Idol, which has you helping a man named Poltahr search for a long lost artifact that he is incapable of retrieving on his own. Within this dungeon, search around various nooks and dead ends for a satchel named Poltahr's Satchel. Within this pack you will find the journal. If you want detailed info on the dungeon and finding it, check the guide linked at the beginning of the paragraph.

Diablo, the Lord of Terror

This is journal four of eight in the series of Cain's Satchel books which cover the various lords and higher demons of hell. The next stop along the way which can spawn the satchel is the Road to Alcarnus which you pass through during City of Blood. This would be an excellent place to farm all eight books considering the potential proximity of the satchel to the waypoint, not to mention the small size of the area overall.

Iron Wolf Captain's Journal

In the quest City of Blood, as you are traveling through Alcarnus itself, freeing prisoners of the coven on the way to killing Maghda, you can search the area for the Iron Wolf Captain's Corpse. It is set apart from the others as there are no other useable corpses which seem to be found dressed like the iron wolves. Activate this object to drop the captain's journal.
