At what quests/points in time do each of Deckard Cain's talk options become available?

The achievement says to "Listen to all of Deckard Cain's conversations." In order to not miss any, I'd like to know when they become available and if and when they are no longer available.

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 from when you start Shattered Crown.
  • Prophecy of the End Days: When you start Shattered Crown.
  • Your Adopted Neice: When you start Shattered Crown.
  • Mad King Leoric: When you start Shattered Crown.
  • The Mysterious Stranger: You get this conversation at the end of Reign of the Black King.
  • The Horadrim: When you start Sword of the Stranger.
    • The Archangel Tyrael: After hearing The Horadrim.
  • Origins of the Coven: Before you start The Broken Blade.
  • Leah and Cain's Travels: Sometime during 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 Broken Blade I don't have the specific objective on this one.
    • Destruction of the Worldstone: After hearing The Worldstone.
