Really interesting reading and very nice analysis, just one thing that I thought of and excuse me if it has been brought up before, lazy as I am I didn't read all the ~800 posts
Wasn't the Nephalem created by both the angels and the demons, namely Lilith and her lover Inarius? And didn't Lilith go rampage and killed all living beings except the Nephalem, Inarius and herself? I thought that maybe that could explain why there are no demon elements to be seen, but what are the demon elements that you expect to come across?
I think it would be pretty cool if Blizzard in some way brought it into the story and created a cool asian influenced class which could equip some primitive guns and also maybe could put together some nice explosives :cool:, but that's just me talking.
I don't remember the part about her rampage. What about the water? What if there were demons in the water, or an entire new continent on the other side of the planet (as the diablo 3 trailer established that it's indeed a planet and not a plane of existence.
