City of Blood Walkthrough
As you reach the entrance into Alcarnus you'll run into the superunique Dark Berserker, Shatterbone. Although he's accompanied by some Crazed Cultists and Hellion he should not be difficult to dispense with.
The Road to Alcarnus is a very small area with no dungeons but it has a Waypoint and also another of Cain's Lost Satchel so if you are doing any of the Lore achievements, you'll pick up a book in that.
As you cross the small bridge into Alcarnus you will receive a bonus 'quest' to release eight prisoners from cages that you can find dotted around Alcarnus and its dungeons. For your troubles you will be rewarded with XP, gold an the Hero of Alcarnus achievement (see below).
Iron Wolf Captain's Journal which forms part of the Judge of Character achievement.
At the back of Alcarnus you'll come to the Lair of the Witch, the witch being Maghda. Once you enter the lair you will not be able to exit until Maghda is dead (finally). It is a small lair with 7 columns which serve as shields to run rings around the Thralls she raises in increasing numbers. She is immune while they are alive thanks to her Shielding so you'll need to keep on her hard in the short period between raising them.
Once she is dead she should leave a couple of rares for you if it's the first time you've killed her on that difficulty and a piece of lore, Maghda, Leader of the Coven.
