Expac Theories

  • #1
    As the Topic States what is your expectation for lore in the Expac and beyond.

    I believe that Leah's Soul will somehow remain intact and come back to help us out like deckard cain did. This is based off the fact that Metzen said it himself they want to bring her back in the expansion. This was said in the Behind the Scenes DVD. Over the course of the expansion Mathael will be found as will Adria. Not entirely sure on what's going to happen to mathael although he could come back evil and corrupted. Adria for sure though will make it her job to hunt down the Blacksoulstone. If you pay very close attention to the Epilogue cinematic you'll notice diablo's body disintegrate and the Blacksoulstone will fall down through the clouds and vanish. This will definitely play a bigger role later on. In our pursuit for Adria Mathael will try to stop us and we will kill him off, Leaving adria to run away to Hell with the stone.

    In the Second expansion If there is one, if not this will just happen during the first one, Adria will return to Hell with the soulstone and place it in the corpse of Tathamet reviving the "true" Prime Evil not this fake BS Diablo Prime Evil. We will kill adria as a miniboss and end up killing Tathamet.

    Trag is going to have to play a role in this one too. I feel like he's not present enough in the games even though he is the Guardian of Sanctuary, And after this trilogy I think they'll take it to another world because in the Sin war Book 3 Mendeln and Trag and Rathma talk about the other guardians for the other worlds, So that will clearly play a role later on in the Series.

    What are your theories like please Discuss and share.
    Not even Death will save you from Diablo Bunny's Cuteness!

    That's what I'm REALLY hoping for with the first expansion. A druid would fit great with the classes we already have.

    in lore terms i would think that we will pursuit imperius who is going to war in hell to find noting and be corrupted by it and we will kill him.

    i so hope that we can kill that bastard :P

    in terms of game mechanics. im hoping there is NO level increase. whould not make any sense with how the game currently is built, looking at you RMAH and the leveling curve and how inferno is built. sure they could possibly add a 5th difficuly for the new max lvl, but making all your gear bought from RMAH usless over one night is just way to cruel. we will probably see another tier of gear tho, ilvl 64 with better stats. and new unique looks. a new tier of gems.

    in terms of skills we will still only have 6 slots but we will probably get 1 extra passive slot and 2-4 new passives per class, i also think we will get 1 new skill per slot, and 1 additional rune per skill.

    we will see the jewleer craft amulets and rings and we will se the blacksmith craft higher tier items.
    we might also se the enchntress for 1 extra random property on gear or a rune scribe able to craft runes giving special properties onto runes, like crit% resist armor, life regen in the form of runes that one can put into socket slots.

    i would love to see enchants on weapons implemented and maybe add sockets by the jewler like gold sink dont know
    a thing they should bring back from d2 is the rune frasing for proks would be gr8t

    I'm currently doing a huge write-up of every possible thing I can think of, trying to weave it all together in a nice and fine way. It'll probably still take a while until I'm done, but I expect the first bit of it to be on done... well, fairly soon.

    All I can say at this point is that ... well, I completely agree with what has been posted here so far - story-wise, that is. :P

    A shapeshifting class could certainly be awesome, but there really needs to be another strength-based class, no doubt.
    It has been said... that in the end of all things... we would find a new beginning. But as the shadow once again crawls across our world... and the stench of terror drifts on a bitter wind... the people pray for strength and guidance. They should pray for the mercy of a swift death... for I've seen what the darkness hides!
    ... I don't think it's safe here.
    Hoping for Pink Chain Lightning in D3!

    After the turd they squeezed out and called Diablo 3's plot, I'm hoping the expansion revolves entirely around Whimsyshire, and that Diablo prime possesses the body of a killer pony--Ponyablo, if you will.

    Oh come on now. That plot certainly wasn't the best and certainly not what I expected but a turd!? That's harsh... and gross.
