I know everyone says The Butcher. But I still stand by the King Leoric quest being more frightening. It's scary cause when you hear his voice, you don't know if it's in your head or if he's just shouting very loudly.
He also hits damn hard, and is nearly as difficult to kill as the Butcher (if you haven't advanced further into the dungeon to level up a bit, first), especially if he engages you before you've had a chance to clear the room. Not that you can really clear it, since he just raises more.
That spell was just insanely powerful. There was no balance with that spell. But it was so glorious to use.
I think one of my characters is strong enough in the magic to use a golem scroll, but Apocalypse is way out of my league.
I may have to break down and start a sorcerer. I've never been big on casters, though.
I've never known what that's like. I've never played a sorcerer, and never put a great deal of points into Magic for my warriors or rogues; just enough to earn a couple-three levels of chain lightning.
What exactly drove the original warrior to shove the soul stone into his own head? Decard Cain said that it was arrogance, but was that it? Did he have pure intentions when he did that? Did he want to be like the Mage who was holding Mephisto? Or did he want Diablo's power for him self?
I waffle on that one, a bit. I never can decide if I think he acted of his own volition in an attempt to contain the Evil, or if he was compelled to do it by some power the stone exerted over him when he picked it up.
