I'm missing some of the talks with Deckard Cain and want to know when they can be made. To make this question more informative, I ask for all the different conversations that are needed for the achievment.

Why am i getting a downvote? The person asked for the achievement details, i gave him one. –  Kyle Yeo May 31 '12 at 14:24
    
@ I'm only interested in the time frame when it's open and prerequisites. Please edit and rearrange your answer to be more readable, and not just a copy paste from a blog. See example here: gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/63584/…. –  Ilya Melamed May 31 '12 at 14:25

I did a run through with a new character, noting when each of the conversations became available. There are a few that the exact point in the quest is not 100% because a friend joined and I didn't want to hold them up by running back after every single objective. Once you've heard a conversation, if it was missable, it seems to stay around in stead so until I go through with another character and don't talk to anyone, I can't be certain when exactly they can be missed.

Deckard Cain's conversations are only in Act I and since you can't speak to him after he enters his house once The Doom in Wortham starts, that's definitely when all conversations with him have certainly been missed.

Act I

  • Who Are You?: Available after accepting the quest A Shattered Crown.
  • Prophecy of the End Days: Available after accepting the quest A Shattered Crown.
  • Your Adopted Neice: Available after accepting the quest A Shattered Crown.
  • Mad King Leoric: Available after accepting the quest A Shattered Crown.
  • The Mysterious Stranger: Available as part of the end of Reign of the Black King.
  • The Horadrim: Available after accepting the quest Sword of the Stranger.
    • The Archangel Tyrael: Available after hearing the conversation The Horadrim.
  • Origins of the Coven: Available from the time after you complete the quest Sword of the Stranger and before you accept the quest The Broken Blade.
  • Leah and Cain's Travels: Sometime during the quest The Broken Blade. It might be related to Leah's conversation Leah's Childhood so I'll have to do some testing.
  • The Worldstone: Sometime during the quest The Broken Blade I don't have the specific objective on this one.
    • Destruction of the Worldstone: Available after hearing the conversation The Worldstone.

you do know you're answering something that's already been answered, right? –  Kyle Yeo Jun 1 '12 at 17:44
    
@RenoYeo Is the answer wrong? There's nothing anywhere that says that a question cannot have multiple answers or that questions with accepted answers cannot get more. In fact stack exchange openly encourages having more answers than questions. Also, the posted answer is missing Destruction of the Worldstone and does not indicate that The Archangel Tyrael appears after hearing The Horadrim. –  skovacs1 Jun 1 '12 at 17:49

@RenoYeo If I find the accepted answer to be wrong, I will post a correct answer. –  skovacs1 Jun 1 '12 at 17:51

@RenoYeo Actually there isn't always an edit button. Not all users have sufficient reputation to edit someone else's answer. Also, I believe that my answer and effort spent researching the answer differentiates it from the accepted answer which merely referenced someone else's unverified information sufficiently to post it as a separate answer. –  skovacs1 Jun 1 '12 at 17:58

@Alok You are entitled to your opinion. I also believe my answer to be more readable because you don't have to scroll just to read them. Additionally, that one point is not the only thing wrong. More like 85% dup. It should be noted though that my answer is not wrong and in being both more complete and more correct than the accepted answer should be more useful to future users. –  skovacs1 Jun 1 '12 at 19:20
