Diablo Wiki

The Black Obelisk, sometimes also called Black Obelisk of Vyr, was a magical construct of unknown proportions created by Vyr.


The Obelisk was created by Vyr the Vainglorious as an arcane power conduit used to harness energy of Archons from other planes.[1]

When Vyr had been killed, the Obelisk bearing his name was destroyed as well.[2]

Apparently, the Obelisk could trap humans in its inner labyrinths[3], so it was either very large, or could lead to a pocket dimension of some sorts.


The Obelisk does not appear in any of the games, but is referenced in flavor text of Vyr's Amazing Arcana set and Nagelring.
