The event in motion

Lair of the Lacuni is an event in Act II of Diablo III. It takes place in the Abandoned Mineworks, an event-specific dungeon under the Howling Plateau.

A wounded member of the Iron Wolves calls out for The Nephalem's help from just outside the Mineworks. Inside, the Iron Wolves fight furiously against an ambush by Lacuni Huntresses. They have split into three groups that need to be saved, as additional Huntresses leap out of the sand throughout the cave. Rescuing them allows them to regroup at their Captain, who gives thanks for the help. The lull in fighting is ended by another onslaught of Huntresses, including several throwing grenades from the ridge above. Last to emerge is the unique Lacuni Warrior, Ghas.

Defeating Ghas awards the usual gold and experience, along with the achievement "Lair of the Lacuni".
