    And the portal in the arcane sanctuary and next to the ever so healthlacking summoner and horazon's journal, which leads to the canyon of the magi, is ... red aswell!

    Yeah the portal to Nihlathak made by Anya or the portal made by Tyrael in act 5 from the worldstone keep (although we don't know where it leads) are both red aswell.

    How might I build a strong energy shield? How many points in telek, shield and warmth? Does max block play a role in avoiding damage when using es?

    There are some calculation examples on other forums, but i'm not sure if I can link them here. But anyway, energy shield gets better due to telek. Thing is, only actual invested points in telekenesis reduce the mana taken through energy shield. Energy shield takes 2 points of mana for every point of life it absorbs. Each point you spend in telekinesis reduces this by 0,0625 point.

    I'd say if you really wanna go for dmg reduction, 20 points in telek+energy shield is your thing, although this is usually more useful for PvP I think. Problem is you also want different ways of damage output if you intend doing hell on your own and mainly just fight mobs, because of the resistances. Warmth 1 point is usually enough.

    When you have energy shield, you can still block melee attacks and avoid damage taken. Thus shields and block chance are still useful.

    When you build a summoner necro, and have 1 point in clay, blood, iron (and perhaps fire) golem, and you want to improve the clay golem a bit, are skillpoints in clay golem good, or is it better to put them in golem mastery in order for all the golems to become a bit better, making your options bigger?

    Also, how many points should go into amplify damage?

    Thanks if anyone has an answer.

    Hmmm when playing Diablo 1, I myself find all the dark spots and the short light radius slightly annoying at times, certainly when not playing the warrior. So I don't mind the light! Especially when the sun is reflecting.
    And then there is the darkening dust on my computer screen . . .

    Haven't read any fantasy books to be honest, usually fiction about real world or novels about real happenings.

    Storywise, I think Knaak is bound to certain previously existing lore and the upcoming games? That would limit the possibilities a bit I guess.
    This does not apply to your argument about Uldyssians story or your soap opera though. I must agree that the "spells" or powers Uldyssian uses, are vague and would have been more interesting if they resembled some of the powers in Diablo 1 or 2. The whole story about Uldyssian can be seen as him learning the magic within, or growing with experience as a character, as in levelling up as an edyrem, and this aswell could have been more descriptive.
    Mendeln has powers which are more familiar to the Diablo series, being the Necromancer student of Rathma/Trag'oul, which appeals to me the most(as many others on this forum aswell). For me partly because of the "dark aspects" of his actions, partly because his powers and deeds resemble those of the necromancer.

    But I still really like the sin war story, as a series to explain how things came to pass and . . . it's ... diablo .. :cool:

    Interesting .. can't really agree on the sin war being bad storywise. I can understand the writing style/language is not of your liking, as that is very subjective, as in everyone has their own tastes. But I have to say the depth of the story and the way, in my opinion, the sin war trilogy offers the backbone to the diablo universe (as opposed to fanfiction), I find it really good. I can't say much about the other books yet, but I'd guess if you don't like the sin war, the other books won't interest you much either.

    Maybe offtopic though, dunno . .

    Hello. I've read the Sin War books and have just finished the somewhat short story Demonsbane. Demonsbane gave some quotes (chapter 9, revelations) from Tyrael of which I did not see the logic compared to the Sin war trilogy. As the Sin War trilogy is seen as canonical, and since demonsbane was the first book to be released, this can probably be written off as not true, still there are some here who are more experienced with Diablo lore than me.

    "If you are here Tyrael, does that mean that the Lords of Heaven will intervene?" Sarnakyle asked. "I fear that is our only hope".
    Tyrael shook his head sadly. "It is very difficult for the most powerful of us to appear on the mortal plane. Even I cannot manifest myself for more than a night at a time. I can offer advice, but nothing else."


    Is this still true? The veiled prophet clearly showed the descent of many Angels on sanctuary. Furthermore there seems no hint for this to apply now (as in after the Sin War release).

    Tyrael: "Heaven and hell have warred for millennia, but only recently have the forced of darkness taken an interest in the mortal realm. The realm used to be protected from the higher and lower planes, but the Prime Evils have used the Vizjerei to weaken that protection. If they can establish a foothold and keep it, then they will have a place that the forces of light cannot besiege, from which they can assault the very gates of Heaven".

    Do we know what protection he speaks of, and what the Prime Evils through the Vizjerei have done to weaken it?
