After defeating the Zaishen:

Ghostly Hero: "I know what it is you seek, for I too wish to claim the Hall of Heroes."
Ghostly Hero: "Follow me. Together we shall open the portal and cross over into the Underworld."

When Ghostly Hero reaches the gate: (doesn't show up in chat box)

Ghostly Hero: "Heed my plea, Spirits of the Rift."
Ghostly Hero: "I have returned to this holy site with a singular purpose."
Ghostly Hero: "I beseech you, open the way."
Ghostly Hero: "Grant us your guidance in this task."
Ghostly Hero: "We ask for only an opportunity."
Ghostly Hero: "We ask only that you allow us to prove our worth in open combat."
