The Ancient Pyramid is the final area in Act 2. This area does not have a waypoint and is connected to The Caverns and The City of Sarn.

This area is split into four separate levels with the Vaal Oversoul at the end. The first three levels continue the maze of rooms from the previous area, and since the player is climbing through a pyramid the levels get progressively smaller. The top level is named Pyramid Apex and is a large circular room with the Dark Altar in the center. The boss battle begins when a player with The ApexThe ApexThough its power has been shared, there

Note that except non-humanoid-sized constructs, there no other vaal construct-type monsters. The skeletons in this subarea are normal undead that can be raised by necromancer.
