Idea's for Future Rift's & Bosses

  • Nephalem Rifts are technically some kind of zone in the void where Orek allows champions to train. Being that the Black Soulstone was destroyed and the spirits of the evils are out and about again, how about a "blast from the past"

    Rift Zone areas from Diablo 2:

    River of Flame into Chaos Sanctuary
    Durance of Hate
    Stony Field
    Arcane Sanctuary
    etc...

    Rift Bosses:

    Illusions of the Lesser/Prime evils/Zone Bosses, I mean come on, it is only training after all:

    Andariel
    Duriel
    Mephisto
    Baal
    Bishibosh
    Rakanishu

    Feel this might be an interesting idea since the layouts are probably still on file with Blizzard....just need some graphics updating and could be a fun little enhancement!
  • This subject has a lot of potential to be a really fun community discussion. Personally, I love the nostalgia involved with bringing back some of those old bosses, but I know there are a lot more ideas out there.

    So, lets hear 'em. What are your ideas for Nephalem Rifts, and/or Rift Guardians?
  • I was just catching up on all of the suggestions and ideas in this thread. The idea of a version of Kadala as a Rift Guardian is awesome, and I really like the thought of evil ghost Cain as a boss, too. Of course, there are plenty of other cool ideas in here, too, like special events, classic bosses, memorable areas from previous games, cross-franchise appearances from iconic characters.

    I'll compile a big list of feedback and send it on up. Thanks, everyone!

    I should note that right now these are just ideas I'm compiling, and this isn't any sort of guarantee that they'll be implemented. I don't want anyone to get the wrong idea that just because I happen to like an idea that it means it will (or even should) be implemented.

    Where the twist is that you or one of your party member is the rift boss.


    I'd have a lot of fun just thinking of witty things to say at the moment that I get to reveal the truth to my unsuspecting party. Of course, if it started with a Luigi death stare I wouldn't have to say anything.
