Act I[edit]

The Weary Blacksmith[edit]

Conversation[edit]

Player: "What troubles you?"

Haedrig: "It's my wife, she is very ill."

Player: "I pray for her health."


The player portion of the conversation can differ depending on the class and gender.


When[edit]

There is a small window of opportunity to get this conversation. It becomes available after completing The Legacy of Cain quest when you are not on any quest. Speak with Leah and then the cart blocking the path in Tristram will disappear which means you can reach Haedrig. Go to him and he'll immediately start The Weary Blacksmith conversation.

Once you accept the next quest, A Shattered Crown, the conversation will disappear so do not accept it from Deckard until speaking with Haedrig.


New Tristram[edit]

Conversation[edit]

Haedrig: "Nothing seems to ever change in New Tristram, does it?"

Player: "What do you mean?"

Haedrig: "There always some threat of the risen dead or foul evil descending on the town, isn't there?"


The player portion of the conversation can differ depending on the class and gender.


When[edit]

After completing A Shattered Crown quest quit out of the game. Select The Fallen Star > Captain Rumford from the quest menu. You'll appear in the centre of Tristram. Speak with the Blacksmith and he will have the "New Tristram" conversation available.



Haedrig's Grandfather[edit]

Conversation[edit]

Player: "I wish to hear more of your grandfather. King Leoric's Chancellor"

Haedrig: "Not much to tell. I lived with my father in Caldeum at the time. We heard that my grandfather stayed in Tristram until the end, trying to save lives. Don't know if he succeeded, but there it is. When the Skeleton King fell, my grandfather was dying from a sword wound. He had the crown sealed with him to keep it safe."

Player: "It takes strength to stand against the dark. Thank you for your grandfather's sacrifice."


The player portion of the conversation can differ depending on the class and gender.


When[edit]

After you have killed his wife Mira in the Cellar of the Damned you can speak to him back at his caravan and he'll have the Haedrig's Grandfather conversation available.



Cain's Disappearance[edit]

Conversation[edit]

Haedrig: "It doesn't seem likely that Deckard Cain could have survived down in the Cathedral this long, does it?

Player: "He is alive, and I will rescue him.

Haedrig: "You seem quite sure of yourself. Do you know something I don't?"


The player portion of the conversation can differ depending on the class and gender.


When[edit]

Available during The Legacy of Cain quest only.


Mira Eamon[edit]

Conversation[edit]

Player: "I am surprised to see you working so soon after your wife's passing."

Haedrig: "There's no point in hiding my face in a pillow. You need weapons; I make weapons. Work needs getting done."

Player: "I find your devotion admirable, and the quality of your work is impressive. We will speak again."


The player portion of the conversation can differ depending on the class and gender.


When[edit]

After handing the crown back to Haedrig, the Blacksmith on completing the Shattered Crown quest.



Haedrig's Father[edit]

Conversation[edit]

Player: "You spoke of your father before. I would like to hear of him."

Haedrig: "My father was a diplomat. We had a manor in Caldeum with servants, terraces, all of that. Everything changed when the troubles started. Somehow, rumors spread that my grandfather was responsible for the King's madness. My father's work fell apart. No one would speak to him. He kept believing it would blow over, though."

Player: "Did it?"

Haedrig: "No. I'd rather not talk about it now, if you don't mind. I have work to see to."


The player portion of the conversation can differ depending on the class and gender.


When[edit]

Available directly after completing The Broken Blade quest.


Select The Broken Blade > Talk to Alaric from the quest menu. Make sure you have listened to any other conversations the Blacksmith has available. Some conversations will not appear if others haven't been listened to first.


Fate of Haedrig's Father[edit]

Conversation[edit]

Haedrig: "I can tell by the look in your eye that you're not going to leave it alone. You want to hear what happened to my father."

Player: "You don't become a hunter unless you've lost someone. You can talk to me."

Haedrig: "Right, well... my father tried to dispel the rumors about my grandfather. No one would listen. Then one night, a week later, crazed refugees from Tristram came for revenge. I remember my father screaming for us to get out. And nasty laughter... a lot of it. Just before Justus shoved me out the window, I saw my father crawling up the stairs at me with two daggers in his back and a third whipping around his throat."

Player: "And the memory of it haunts your dreams even now."

Haedrig: "How did you know?"

Player: "I told you, blacksmith. We've all lost someone."


The player portion of the conversation can differ depending on the class and gender.


When[edit]

Act II[edit]

Returning to Caldeum[edit]

Conversation[edit]

Player: "Returning to Caldeum must be hard for you."

Haedrig: "I told myself I'd never come back here, and yet here I am."

Player: "Because of what happened to your father?"

Haedrig: "Because of what happened to me. Some scars don't heal, and there's no point in scratching at them, is there? Weather doesn't suit me either."


The player portion of the conversation can differ depending on the class and gender.


When[edit]

Available after you accept the quest Shadows in the Desert.


Changes in the City[edit]

Conversation[edit]

Player: "Have things changed much in Caldeum since you have been gone?"

Haedrig: "Last time I passed through here was soon after meeting Mira. She wanted to stop and see the city, but I convinced her to travel on. My good memories of Caldeum feel like I'm watching someone else's life. I'll be glad for us to be gone."


The player portion of the conversation can differ depending on the class and gender.


When[edit]

After completing Shadows in the Desert quest with the Enchantress at the Black Canyon Bridge and starting The Road to Alcarnus.


Meeting Mira[edit]

Conversation[edit]

Player: "Did you meet your wife here?"

Haedrig: "It's actually quite a tale. We met in a town not far from here, on the outskirts of Kurast. She was... Well, you're not going to believe it...She was... locked in a cage."

Player: "You married a criminal?"

The Vecin (Act II)[edit]

Conversation[edit]

Player: "What happened when you were with the Vecin?"

Haedrig: "When we first joined the wagon train, we were just two lost souls. The Vecin thought it was unbearably romantic, a pair of lovers on the run from their pasts. I suppose it might have even been true. A mystic with the Vecin recognized Mira's talent immediately. We stayed with them while Mira learned from her. Along the way, we fell in love and married. I've never known anything as surely as my love for her."

Player: "Maybe she cast a spell on you."

Going to Tristram (Act II)[edit]

Conversation[edit]

Player: "What brought you to Tristram?"

Haedrig: "You know, I've asked myself that. It was Mira's idea. I wonder if she saw something and knew that I needed to be there to help you. Did she know what was going to happen all along?"

Player: "There's no point in asking yourself such questions. What is done is done."

Haedrig: "Thank you. I need a moment alone."


The player portion of the conversation can differ depending on the class and gender.


When[edit]

After you accept The Black Soulstone quest.


Caldeum after Belial[edit]

Conversation[edit]

Haedrig: "Do you wonder what will happen in Caldeum now?"

Player: "Life will go on, I expect. For those who survived."

Haedrig: "Asheara will be there to keep the peace. I only hope they rebuild wisely. I have seen the ruin that Leoric and Diablo brought in Tristram. I would not wish it upon Caldeum.

Player: "I can't think about that until I have won."

Haedrig: "It's never too early."

Player: "The demons will scatter when [[Azmodan is dead. I will hunt them down and slay them one by one."

Raising the Catapults[edit]

Conversation[edit]

Player: "Yes it does. More than ever, in fact. I can never succeed in this without your aid"
