From Diablo Wiki
sorry, but those instructions don't get someone to cathedral lvl 1. Leoric's passage leads to Cathedral lvl 2, and there aren't any stairs going back from 2 to 1. Instead of using Leoric's passageway from the Cathedral Garden waypoint, walk to the left to the front door of the Cathedral stairs, as was done to rescue Deckard.
