    posted a message on Did you purchase the pass ?
    I'm just buying a copy of Diablo III. I played World of Warcraft from 2005-2010 and it was awesome, but when I quit it was because the game had just moved on too much from what I loved back in vanilla. Nostalgia or not, it lost its charm and didn't hold my attention anymore. Haven't been back since, and the next expansion should be the final nail in the coffin I think.

    I've got assignments to finish for University which are to be handed in the week after, so I'll be playing it sparingly even though I'm getting it on release. Gone are the days where I stay up all night and play games. Sleep is more important to me nowadays, 8 hours minimum!! B)

    Welcome to the forums. :)

    Witch Doctor, eh? Good choice! I'm a Barbarian man myself but it's always good to have a plague making, curse-throwing, frog-spawning Witch Doctor by my side taking the pain to the evils of Sanctuary!

    Greetings, Ivan! Nice to see another software developer joining up and having interest in a fine series such as Diablo. It's good to get away from C#, C++ and all that bother and delve into a game as rich as this.

    Enjoy your time here. Make sure to contribute and get yourself seen around the forums. B)

    posted a message on Is it possible that Leah is...
    Quote from Doomscream

    Well, technically every human is a nephalem descendant. Especially now since the Worldstone is no longer 'around'.

    This is true, but I think most humans ability to discover these powers must've been diluted over the millenia since the first Nephalem were born of the mating of Lilith and Inarius. With Leah being born from the mating of a Demon and a human, her blood should technically be more able to rediscover these powers. Just my take though.

    ... a Nephalem-descendant? (or Edyrem, whichever you choose to call them). I'll get to this point soon, but first...

    I've seen theories that she may be Tyrael, since he went missing 20 years ago and Leah was born shortly before this - and he may have absorbed himself into her soul. Then she is cared for by a "pure heart" in Gillian (the barmaid in Caldeum) when Adria left her there, and then is looked after by Deckard Cain who we know is the last of the Horadrim and is now passing on his knowledge to her through teachings and his Book of Cain.

    There's also the theory that Leah is Diablo, but I wouldn't be too sure on this (or the Tyrael theory) for the fact that Diablo's Soulstone was destroyed. To counter that theory, I think that the Prime Evil's have been imprisoned in the Black Soulstone. The history of the Black Soulstone is that it was created by Zoltun Kulle to harness the "essence" (key word) of both the Demons and Angels - who's to say that it was a Soulstone which gathered the wandering essences of those Prime Evils who were slain by destroying their allocated Soulstone? It sure looks bigger than a regular Soulstone, and from what I can see in the trailers it has 3 "peaks" which could indicate it contains 3 souls. That's probably a null point, but it is significantly larger than other Soulstones in any case - an indicator that it may be able to contain much more.

    We know that Azmodan wants possession of the Black Soulstone as he sees it as "the key" to ruling the Burning Hells - why is this? What's so special about the Black Soulstone? I think it's because it already holds the souls of Diablo, Baal and Mephisto and if it is in his possession, they will be trapped inside the Black Soulstone for all eternity.

    Now on to why I think Leah may be a Nephalem-descendant. I think she is an Edyrem since she was born of Aidan (who was possessed by Diablo, a demon) and Adria. Now – I won’t say Adria was an Angel, since she most likely isn't, but it gives to purpose that a demon would’ve given their bloodline to a human. This may reignite the Nephalem flame, and Leah will have special blood coursing inside her. Deckard Cain is placing his teachings on her, and he hopes she will understand them in time. If anyone has read The Sin War books, we know that humans are blissfully unaware of their powers until they realise who they are and what they can become. It just strikes me as this may be what happens to Leah. She will realise who she is, and what she’s capable of, and will become humanity’s sword and shield against both the High Heavens and Burning Hells. It’ll bring The Sin War books to life basically.

    Anyway, feel free to shoot me down on this. I haven’t read around to see if this theory has been thought up and brought down before, or if it’s even valid, but I thought it’d be interesting to write it down and post it anyhow.

    I hope it breeds good discussion!

    You can see that a small house near Gilian's is also missing. Same with Adria's hut.

    Ah okay it makes more sense now. Thanks for providing those images. I never looked that much into detail with it, it's good to know. ;)

    From the wiki I'm reading, it says the Cathedral does not feature but you do see the foundations of it are the only things left standing. I wasn't trying to say we explore it or anything like that, just that it is there but it's all but destroyed.

    I'm always ready to learn more about the lore in the game. I look forward to seeing these pictures.

    Can you point me to where you learnt this? I've been out of the lore loop for almost 4 years - has more stuff been retconned that I don't know about? Maybe my memory isn't as good as I thought it was in any case.

    Quote from KingCobb

    1. When did we go to the cathedral in D2. That was the rogues monastery.
    2. Tristam was never a great city. Leoric himself is confused why lazuras insisted on bringing them to such a back water full of peasants and serfs.

    1. The 'Search for Cain' quest in Diablo II: Act I. You go to Tristram to rescue Deckard Cain who was captured. If you wander around the place, you'll be able to go to where the Cathedral stood in Diablo I. It's rundown and pretty much destroyed. Find out more here.

    2. I know Tristram wasn't a "great city", King Leoric just went there and made it the Capital of Khanduras under guidance of Archbishop Lazarus due to his influence from Mephisto. It was then built up (as most Capitals are) and was then quite well populated. I said it was a "fairly large town" in any case, not a "great city".

    EDIT: Just adding some clarity to my points.

    posted a message on Long term fans
    I first played Diablo I in 2001 for the PlayStation with my friend. I remember it clearly because we would sit crosslegged on my floor together and played it for hours on end. I probably would've played it sooner but in 1997 I was only 9 and didn't have a PC or enough urge for games. :P

    The first few months after Diablo III was announced, I was really excited. I then realised the game was at least 2 years away from release and lost interest in it. That's how I deal with this kind of stuff otherwise it drags. There is a lot more things I have interest in anyway, so it wasn't too hard to just do something else. Then last month I saw the release date and, well, I thought it a good time to get back into the community again.

    Looking forward to May 15th. ;)

    EDIT: Dirty spelling mistakes.

    posted a message on Gossip
    I prefer the way the selection for conversation is now than it was previously. I tended to keep going through Gossip over and over to make sure I got every last drip, and it made me paranoid and check again after I advanced in story to see if there was more. Unsurpringly enough, I'd exhausted most of the Gossip already and ended up just wasting time. At least seeing topics to talk about, and ones you've already talked about greyed out, you know if there's more to learn or not.

    Diablo I: The Butcher.

    Diablo II: Vile Mother.

    Mainly because they were both fearsome and can beat you down quickly if you weren't quick enough.

    posted a message on Full list of base Amor sets, with pics!
    Quote from Calavera666

    Making big and stilyzed figures has been one of Blizzard's main art designing cornerstones for the past 10 years or so.
    They've done a great job trying to make the characters look as far away possible from the Warcraft universe. If you check the barbarian armor designs from 08, you'll find out that it looks way more WoW than the current ones.

    And hey, the Barb is the only class with kind of over the top shoulder/armor parts, the other ones are not all that massive :P

    Herein lies my point: I'm a big Barbarian fan and it'll be the class I spend the most time with in Diablo III. Don't get me wrong, I want him to look like a juggernaut, but some of the shoulderguards on those armours are mental. As long as they have nice stats, I won't mind much though. ;)
