Alkor is an NPC from Diablo II, Act III. He is an Alchemist, similar to Lysander in personality and wares. Alkor's shop is at the top of the map, where he sells various potions. He is also very fond of necromancers. Apparently, he has a number of odd potions, claiming that Asheara is a good customer as she buys a "potion of manliness" from him every week, although the latter is most likely Alkor's rude sense of humor.

He also claims to have a library of heretical, exegetical, hermeneutical, and pharmaceutical tomes. The pharmaceutical tomes would make sense for an alchemist, while the rest concern religious texts, which explains why Alkor is familiar with Lam Esen's Tome.

  • General
Damn it, I wish you people would just leave me alone! I...

Oh, you're new here, aren't you?

I am Alkor, the Alchemist. I dabble in potions and salves, and I can sell you some if you really need them.

But don't make a habit of coming here. I don't like to be disturbed while I'm studying!
Damn it, I wish you people would just leave me alone! I...

Oh, you're a Necromancer, aren't you? I've heard that your kind use powerful potions and such to wake the dead and control spirits. I'd love to discuss what components you use some time.

I am Alkor, the Alchemist. I dabble in potions and salves, myself, and I can sell you some if you really need them.

...Feel free to drop by anytime.


  • Grimoire
Care to take a gander at my Grimoire?
  • Potions
I've never claimed that you'd live forever after trying one of my potions! Merely that you might look as though you had.
  • Library
I keep a library of tomes - heretical, exegetical, hermeneutical and pharmaceutical.
  • Badgering
I hope you don't object to my badgering the witless.
You came here with Meshif? That old 'tour-guide to the stupid'!

I'm surprised you made it here in one piece.
Oh, Asheara's a good customer. She buys a potion of manliness from me every week.
Hratli's only good for making his silly magic weapons. It's not like he's got the stones to actually go out and use them on anything.
Oh, Ormus has been talking in riddles for years. I think he does it to cover up the fact that he's got nothing intelligent to say.
Yes, Natalya is a cute girl. However, I think she could use a special potion. Let me see here, 'Radiant Beauty'? No. 'Ray of Sunshine'? No, that's not it. Ah, here it is, 'Relax Frosty Bitch'. This should help her out.
  • Evil (Necromancer)
Even I can tell that the evil in the jungle is growing. I hope you survive out there, my pasty friend. I'd still like to discuss what components are best used in necromantic potions.
  • Golden Bird (Cut)
There was a very fat man here recently asking after the Golden Bird of Ku Y'Leh. Have you heard of it? He kept muttering about ashes. I would imagine one Golden Bird's ash-hole to be about the same as another, wouldn't you?

The Golden BirdEdit

  • Quest Initiation
Many alchemists believe that Ku Y'leh's magical elixirs bonded with his body before his death. His ashes are, therefore, considered to be very rare, highly potent alchemical ingredients. If I could procure the ashes, I would create a potion which could defy death itself!
  • After Initiate
Remember, Ku Y'leh's ashes are stored within the statuette of the Golden Bird. The bird is worth a great deal to the one who can locate it.
  • Early Return
Who has not dreamt of immortality? One man is rumored to have done more than merely dream. Find the Golden Bird of Ku Y'leh, and you might find the secret to everlasting life.
  • With Golden Bird
Ah, the Golden Bird of Ku Y'leh.  Thank you, my friend.

Busy yourself while I experiment with the ashes within it. Then, return and see what I have made for you.
  • Upon Completion
From the ashes of Ku Y'leh I have mixed for you a potion.

Lam Esen's TomeEdit

  • Quest Initiation
It pains me to waste time with you, so I'll get right to the point.

There is a very special book which you must find for me. It was written long ago by a sage known as Lam Esen, who studied Skatsimi magic and the effects of the Prime Evils on the mortal world. The Black Book was lost when the Children of Zakarum took over this land.

Now, you must reclaim it without delay! Its knowledge may aid us in this dark time ahead.
  • After Initiate
The Black Book contains powerful secrets of Skatsim, the Old Religion, long eclipsed by Zakarum.

I should warn you. The Black Book is much sought after by both good and evil. Be wary.
  • Early Return
Did I neglect to mention that the book contains useful information about the Prime Evils?
  • Upon Completion
You have found the Book! It should give all of us here some insight into the nature of the Prime Evils...

Ah, but as for you...

Blade of the Old ReligionEdit

  • After Initiate
Have you not heard of the Gidbinn? Well, allow me to reduce your ignorance on the subject.

The Gidbinn is an enchanted dagger - a religious artifact greatly valued by the Old Religion, Skatsim.
  • Early Return
Legend has it that the Skatsimi priests placed great power within the small blade. Power enough to repel this terrible jungle-curse which encroaches on our sanctuary.
  • Upon Completion
Hah! You have stolen the fabled blade from right under Zakarum's nose! This is a great day, indeed!

The Blackened TempleEdit

  • After Initiate (Black Book)
The Black Book contains some vague prophecies regarding this undertaking. I'm not so sure it will turn out well for you.
  • After Initiate
I am but a potion dealer and an avid reader of occult books. What do I know of the Travincal?
  • Early Return (Black Book)
Kill as many as you can. I have a morbid love of excess.
  • Early Return
If only we could have found the Black Book. I feel as though a malevolent hand has led us away from it.
  • Upon Completion
You've accomplished the impossible! By killing the Council, the curse of Zakarum will be lifted and our land will be free!

Oh. Thank you!

The GuardianEdit

  • After Initiate (Black Book)
The hidden ways of the Tower are long forgotten. Though, it is rumored to have been built as far below the ground as above it.
  • After Initiate
We have seen Diablo, but remain unsure of his Brothers' whereabouts.
  • Early Return (Black Book)
Well, the good news is that events are unfolding just as Lam Esen foretold. The bad news is that the story ends in our utter ruin!
  • Early Return
I'm afraid both fear and a large dose of elixir preclude me from answering.
  • Upon Completion
Your news is great indeed. You have saved us all. I would smile, but I'm afraid my face might collapse.

Gossip about AlkorEdit

Some of the other locals give their thoughts concerning Alkor.

Alkor is a potion dealer given over to a life steeped in ceaseless study and dissipation.
I went to speak with old Alkor, but I disturbed his studies. He doesn't seem to like visitors.
Alkor is able to explain things much more clearly than Ormus.


Alkor has a very strong Indian accent, making him rather unique and raising questions as to where Indian accent exists in the world of Sanctuary.
