Vekriss, Sworn of Dirgest, is a Unique Oppressor found in the Unearthed Ruins Level 2 in Act V of Diablo III. He only spawns during the personal quest of Covetous Shen.


"Zei? Is that you? You look... different."

- Vekriss to Shen(src)

When Dirgest killed Liria to have his revenge on Zei, Vekriss, Dirgest's minion, was tasked with guarding her imprisoned soul. Ages later, when the Nephalem and Shen came to Unearthed Ruins in search of the cursed jewel, they found Vekriss standing on guard of what little remained from the shattered gemstone (possibly implying that Vekriss was the one who destroyed it to liberate his master). The demon recognized Shen as Zei, remarking that he "looks different". Shortly after, Vekriss was slain by the Nephalem.[1]


In combat, Vekriss has Mortar and Teleporter affixes. He will not attack or be attackable until the dialogue is over. Killing him is required to proceed with the quest. Due to the way The Jewel of Dirgest quest works, each character can only kill him once.

Unlike other Oppressors, Vekriss uses the model of Izual.
