Safe House Three

After polishing off the Warmaster, enter the door in the room here for a chest containing a legendary item – Ice Reaver, before climbing back up the stairs to the street. Once outside, enter the door to the right, just below where we dropped down from the upper road previously to return back inside. Make your way all the way back to the underground.

The Underground

Return to the room with the skeleton door and use the key to open it up. Proceed on through. Enter the hole in the wall to the left and death grip across to the far side to enter Belial’s Lair.

Belial’s Lair

Follow the train tracks until you reach the open room. Kill the hell slaves that come to attack you and jump up to the platform on the left. Head for the open doorway and grab the grenade launcher weapon from the floor in front. Climb the stairs and continue shooting your way through the next few rooms killing the hell slaves and defilers as they appear.

It’s wise to use baiting tactics to get the enemies to spawn and then retreat to a narrow corridor so you can catch more of them in a single grenade blast. There’s a lot of enemies to kill before you can unlock the blocked exits at the end of the winding corridor; so don’t rush and take your time!

When you reach the end; a scene will play and show two new openings for you to explore. Check out the right for a chest and a door back to the subway platform. Head left to continue. Climb up the wall to the ledge at the end of the tunnel and proceed into the large room for a boss fight.

Boss: Demon Lord Belial

With a bit of patience - deft dodging - this DLC boss isn’t too bad. Just go in for a few hits and get back out before he attacks and you’ll soon get to learn each move’s ‘tell’.

Strategy

Belial is a fairly large, slow moving boss that has a nasty ranged and even nastier set of close proximity attacks. The trick is to dodge his energy impale move, get in close to whack him a few times and then dash away before he can perform his blade geyser attack. Repeat the process until he phase shifts for the first time.

During this mode; he will become ethereal, he will plant his weapon in the ground and charge up. As he does, he will also have a small blue sphere appear, if you are unable to shoot this enough within the short window in which it appears, Belial will explode, damaging you before repeating the process.

Continue shooting the blue ball until he re-appears. At this point, he will now start to use his lava fissure attack in addition to the attacks listed above. Again, repeat the dodge, attack, dash combo to whittle his health away. Once enough has been done, he will phase shift for a second time. This time, he will also use his energy impale attack before summoning the blue ball.

Again; when you see the ball shoot it until he transforms back. This final stage of the fight is exactly the same as the previous one, except when he has no health remaining, he will enter ethereal mode for a final time. Here he will use the energy impale attack, but to mix things up, instead of being stationary, the blue energy ball will be moving around. Destroy it one final time to complete the fight.

Note that Vulgrim will also deposit a legendary weapon - Belial’s Trident in your mailbox for completing the quest!
