Shes avatar/sig worthy...
Yeah I was thinkin that. w/e
She better be important, like Deckard Cains daughter or somesuch...
She's Cains bitch.
The only thing that would really piss me is if they keep this fluffy rainbow cartoon of a graphics style.
Ya, god forbid all of sanctuary doesn't look like a coloring by a visually impaired 1st grader.
Color inside the lines bitch!
Good lord she can't be his daughter - cain's like 900 years old (not really) viagra didnt exist back then.
This thread got pretty sad, pretty quick.
I will, blue green red orange yellow purple. Colors all present in D2, now that I think about it...
Cain will die early, and she will probably take his place, having been taught by him and learning things
Well if you guys read the books based after d2 diablo does come back in 2 of them. YEa sure he's just a shadow controlling and warping peoples minds to do his bidding but he still is there but not in physical form. Just because you killed Diablo doesn't mean hes dead. They say in the book that you can't ever really kill a demon. You can kill the physical form but not the..er soul I guess? Thats why they sealed them or whatever. Funny as in The last book of the sin war when you kill a angel it goes poof but demons can come back *scratches head*. I need to re-read the books now as I confused myself.
Considering The Burning Hells are basically the Underworld, I always assumed that slaying a demon sends them BACK to the Underworld. The reason Soulstones were used was to keep their power locked in a controllable place, but it ended up backfiring as they became more of an anchor and a reliable place from which to draw their power should they corrupt the holder and gain possession of the Soulstones.
Hence, the Soulstones were destroyed in order to get rid of that anchor and make it harder for the Prime Evils to remanifest in our world. Even if we slew their bodies, whoever held the Soulstones would be vulnerable to their trickery and run the risk of corruption...becoming their new ticket to appearing in our world. With the Soulstones gone and the mortal vessels killed, the Prime Evils had no real link to our realm and would have to find some other new way to manifest.
But then the Worldstone was corrupted by Baal, so that Tyrael had to destroy it. If I recall the cutscenes and dialogue properly, was the Worldstone not a sort of protective buttress against demonic intrusion? A separator between realms? I seem to remember something said about how with the Worldstone gone, the barriers between realms would fall and who knows what would happen.
If all that was indeed properly interpreted, I can see it as plenty possible for the Evils to break through into our realm provided they had a link on this side...namely the cultists that we've been shown in D3 so far. Apparently they're pretty obsessed with Diablo...the encyclopedia entry on the main site refers to their sacrificial ritual, in which they hammer spikes into their victim's spine...calling the spikes "the Teeth of Diablo." It's these "sacrificed" cultists that are the ones who transform into monsters and come after you if left alone long enough, as you can see in the concept art they have the three spikes in their spines.
Won't be pissed off, but without the Lord Of Terror, the game title will feel ... wrong ...
Anyway, he better be resurrected or something in D3.
Pretty sure that's what the cultists are all about, trying to bring him back through ritualistic sacrifices and such. The "Teeth of Diablo" ritual is probably intended to forge a link between the "martyr" and the Lord of Terror, providing a passage for his entry. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be working out properly.
These cultists are probably the whole reason for all the trouble, since so far it seems like they're the driving force behind a lot of mayhem. I mean, every time they pop up they're either summoning beasties or trying to perform some bizarre ritual.
Diablo needs a new trick. the whole evil devil thing got old.
I'm sure if you tell him that, he'll take up a new hobby...like needlepoint.
its a winning formula
Now that is a scary thought
I'm curious as to what the overall story is now...
The Worldstone is gone, and the 3 prime evils are banished. Do we go into hell and fight them again or what...definitely a lot of options here. At most, I don't think it says anywhere explicitly that they destroyed Diablo's soulstone. Baals probably died when Mount Arreat imploded.
