About Leah

Leah is the niece of Deckard Cain, who is the first main character you encounter after arriving in New Tristram. At her behest, you are tasked with saving her uncle, who was trapped in the nearby cathedral when Tyrael plummeted out of the sky, crashing into it. At first she does not believe in her uncle's lifelong quest, thinking him crazy, yet after his passing and the revelations of Tyrael's willing fall from the heavens, she begins to realize her place in continuing Deckard's work.

Note: Sometimes a dialogue option remains hidden until you have opened another one that is available. Also, sometimes they eventually go away later in the game.

Also, the character's replies are done from the point of the Witch Doctor, others may be added in the future for completionism, but they will all be along the same lines. Requests are open if this is something you are interested in, just leave a comment below and I'll work on getting your requested character type's put in.

Tristram

Available once you arrive at Adria's Hut in the Quest: The Legacy of Cain (Act I)
Disappears at the start of the Quest: A Shattered Crown (Act I)

Leah:
For a long time, Uncle Deckard avoided combing back to this place. There were a lot of ghosts here for him.

This is where Diablo drove old King Leoric mad and terrorized the people.

I don't know what really happened here, but whatever it was, it was horrible. Nearly everyone who survived went mad.

Adria's Death

Available once you arrive at Adria's Hut in the Quest: The Legacy of Cain (Act I)
Disappears before the start of the Quest: Trailing the Coven (Act I)

Player:
How did Adria pass to the Unformed Land?

Leah:
You mean how did she die?

Well, details are hazy, but I know that Adria was obsessed with chasing the arcane. She knew she could never raise a child.

Uncle Deckard believes that the madness and horror of her life finally caught up to her.

Life with Cain

Available at the start of the Quest: A Shattered Crown (Act I)
Disappears before the start of the Quest: Trailing the Coven (Act I)

Leah:
I've spent most of my life traveling from place to place with Uncle Deckard while he did his crazy research.

Player:
What does your uncle seek?

Leah:
He's convinced that the forces of Hell will invade our world and bring about the end times. All these years, he's still searching for a way to stop this... apocalypse.

Adria

Available at the start of the Quest: A Shattered Crown (Act I)
Disappears before the start of the Quest: Trailing the Coven (Act I)

Player:
Do you have knowledge of your mother?

Leah:
She wasn't from Tristram originally. She came here during the troubles.

She was in search of something, but I am not sure what. She reminds me of Uncle Deckard, obsessed with the war between angels and demons.

Leah's Childhood

Available in the Quest: The Broken Blade (Act I)
*During the drowned temple quest she will say: "This is amazing! It reminds me of being a child and searching for lost artifacts with Uncle Deckard", after which you can right click her portrait to have this conversation.
*Credit to Reima for the correction.
**Please confirm this below.

Leah:
Uncle Deckard and I traveled all over the world in my youth, looking for lost lore and artifacts. It was so exciting-crawling around ancient temples, digging through forgotten crypts...

I feel fortunate that Uncle Deckard raised me the way he did. The things I learned from him... But now I don't know. I see what his obsession with his quest has cost him... has cost us...

About the Temple

Available during the Quest: The Broken Blade (Act I)
In the Drowned temple she will say " Look at this architecture, it predates the sin war. Right click her icon at the top and talk to her then.

Leah:
The drowned Temple was once known as the Sarceum Emporis. It was the most sacred of their temples, a site where legend claims angels would come to impart their wisdom on the nephalem.

Leah's Power

Available at the start of the Quest: Trailing the Coven (Act I)

Leah:
This damned power I have... Uncle Deckard said it came from my mother. He tried to teach me how to control it, using his Horadric training, but it never really helped.

He never gave up on me, though. He was a great man.

About Zoltun Kulle

Available at the start of the Quest: Betrayer of the Horadrim (Act II)

Leah:
I don't like dealing with Kulle any better than you do, but I see no other way. If Adria says we must, then we must. Uncle Deckard trusted her, and so will I.


About Adria

Available at the start of the Quest: The Black Soulstone (Act II)

Leah:
I'm not sure what I expected it would be like to have my mother back... but it wasn't this. She's different than what I had imagined... I can see the toll her mission has exacted from her, just as it had with my uncle.

Remembering Deckard

Available at the start of the Quest: The Black Soulstone (Act II)

Leah:
I miss Uncle Deckard so much... It's hard going on without him.

Player:
Cain would be proud of you, Leah.

Leah:
Thank you... I'm going to get back to my research.

The Archives

Available after starting the Quest: The Black Soulstone (Act II)
*Talk to her upon entering the Archives, before entering the sub-zones to open the locks with Kulle's blood.

Leah:
After everything we've come to know about Zoltun Kulle, I never imagined anything like this.

Maybe Adria is right about the Black Soulstone.

Soulstone Instability

Available at the start of the Quest: The Siege of Bastion's Keep (Act III)

Leah:
The Black Soulstone's getting hotter, straining against me. They're... whispering to me from inside.

Adria:
The demons within seek escape. Only your power can keep it from splitting apart, my daughter.

It's a heavy burden, but the fate of the world lies in your hands.

Concern

Available at the start of the Quest: The Siege of Bastion's Keep (Act III)

Player:
The stone fights against your control.

Leah:
It's getting more difficult, but it's nothing I can't handle.

Adria:
The demons war and rage to escape their imprisonment. Their fury will only increase over time. Leah is very brave, but we'd best hurry before her strength fails.

Hopes

Available at the start of the Quest: Turning the Tide (Act III)
*unlocks Dreams

Leah:
I'm glad this is almost done. I don't... I don't think I have much time left.

Player:
It is the influence of the stone that makes you lose hope. Remember the inn you wish to build. Your safe place.

Leah:
No, you were right. There is no safe place for anyone. Look around us. If this keep can't protect us, what chance would a silly little inn have?

Dreams

Available at the start of the Quest: Turning the Tide (Act III)
*unlocked by Hopes

Player:
Your strength is protecting us all, Leah. It should not be long now. Azmodan will be dead, and the soulstone will no longer be your burden to bear.

Leah:
The demonic rage is building up again. But I can do this. I know I can. Thank you.

Thank you! That was a fine appetizer of Diablo 3, I can't wait to play it!


Gore 4 years ago

For some reason, when About the Temple will not show up as a dialouge option.

You tried talking to her before accepting the quest? Are you backtracking or trying to get this conversation as you play the first time in that difficulty?


monk 4 years ago

Not getting the Leah's Childhood option at any point so far.


dur 4 years ago

No Leah's Childhood either.

Try unlocking the Deckard Cain convos at the same time, there may be a cross dependent convo. Also, did you beat the game on the difficulty you are doing this on already?


Reima 4 years ago

Leah's Childhood is only available during the Drowned Temple quest. During the exploration in the Crypts, watch for her mentioning "This is amazing! It reminds me of being a child and searching for lost artifacts with Uncle Deckard"

After which, right click her portrait and select the conversation.


Akitagarras 4 years ago

Remembering Deckard

Available at the start of the Quest: Betrayer of the Horadrim (Act I)

Thanks for the update on Leah's Childhood, not sure it showed up for me where d. Can i get a couple confirmations of this just to make sure?


Guy 4 years ago

About the temple will not show up on normal - before accepting the quest, or anytime after that.


Xathias 4 years ago

You can get hopes and dreams from Act III part II. Just talk to the archangel Tyrael and then go back down and talk to Leah. I did this on Nightmare, not sure that it matters. But I got all the achievements for doing so.


maddoc 4 years ago

I've loaded Doom in Wortham half a dozen times now, talked to Cain first, then leah, talked to the mercenaries first, tried every combination I could think of. I can't get this "About The Temple" convo to show up. I tried talking while running around with her, tried talking after she stops following.

Ok, found out what it was and updated the conversation, not sure why it showed up for me where it did.


nobody 4 years ago

The last two convos for leah are in the breached keep not tides


Vic 4 years ago

I can't get Leah's Power to trigger. I start the quest listed, I have to talk to her first to kick off the quest, afterwards, there's no conversation option for it. Halp!


Vic 4 years ago

Disregard my last comment. It was there but it wasn't white, it was greyed out like I've already talked to her about it (but I didn't, it wasn't checked off on my achievement). So maybe it's a bug or maybe I'm just crazy but it works.


Dirk 4 years ago

About Adria appears at the start of the quest: The Black Soulstone.


Tactoran 4 years ago

For 'The Archives' you have to talk to Leah before you enter any of the two Sub-Zones where you find Kulle's last few body parts.

Berzco 3 years ago

Can't get the "About the temple" to Work either.

Been trying for a long time


Affa 3 years ago

Manage to get the "About the Temple" finally. Been trying so many ways but finally I manage to get it by having Scoundrel as my follower.


Xander 3 years ago

The 'Hopes' and 'Dream' ones require you to actually start the Raise the catapults objective by talking to Tyrael after starting Turning the Tide, it won't appear if you just begin quest and look for it.


zef 3 years ago

the problem with about the temple is, it doesn't show the blue asterix, but the dialogue is available; just right click her portrait and select it from there.
