I have a friend in Vancouver, WA I haven't seen in a while. I mention about this website and he told me his father is one of the animation artist for the "Diablo III Platform". I went into detail about the conversation, and he told me there will be completely new acts and and additional characters. A wider area in each location and new monsters. He saw a couple demos that his father stole. This story is backed up by my friend in San Jose. He said the same thing except for less detail. The point is Diablo III is real and I will try to get hard evidence to post on the website.

I think this is a hoax. If the stuff was even remotely true, they would have said something about it. At least told us something. I believe this is all complete bullcrap.

I strongly agree with AcidReign. And for those who are being to hasty, rushing our lords to submit the information is bullshit. Our lords have been here long before your time. Their wisdom on such matter is unreachable by everyone here. If they need more time to anylize the findings of General Ryan, give them that time. They diserve a lot respect in this community and if you want to be in this community know your place and wait.

Char LIst Chronomancer-Chrono meaning "time". Soruce didn't have time to try out. Monster Tamer-skills for taming demons and others. Templar-More atuned to melee combat. combat masteries like barbarian. Warlock-Male sorcerer. earth/wind/psyonic Fighter-Hand to hand combat. Recieves bonuses without any weapons or shields. Skills much like assassin but no charge up. Also the source said that u could still use all existing d2 and d2 lod chars in d3 and that u could switch d2 chars over into diablo 3 (SOmehwhat sounds like and expansion to d2 lod to me)
The source also said that the game was a bit glitchy but this could possibly be from the new havok 4 system that was intrigrated
The game starts were you are left off in Horagath. Rejoice for prime evils banished, however, other evils walk the earth.
also the source said that d3 would include alot more char detail as in char movement for certain actions
exp u drink a potion ur char actually grabs potion from belt and drinks it on screen Ryan also said he would be Visiting his source again and would be relaying more evidence (possible screenies) to myself as/if he recieves them He stated that the programming in the game wouldnt allow screenies to be taken(as i have heard of this in most beta/demo games) but i told him digital camera or screen shot program ect would work fine
Like i said I blieve it to be true but must put a warning saying it might not be because of the lack of hard evidence and to cover everyones ass's

And it is . . . I am no longer posting information on this thread as most of you know. All posting of my findings will be anylized and posted by Lord Silver and Elfen Lied. But rest assured, Diablo III is coming out.

Diablo III will come out late 2007 or early 2008... That's my guess

Hello everyone. Sorry for my leave. I was on a quest to San Jose where my family and other contact reside in. I would like to say that I have more detailed information to offer to Lord Silver and Elfen Lied. I was unable to get screenshots yet again as Blizzard asked all parties of the demo/alpha to be recalled. Expect more news from Lord Silver and Elfen Lied as I go over my notes and format it to pm to Lord Silver and Elfen Lied. I am glad to be back.

it will be around xmas time for sure so not som random date that is like april 3 2007....
Quote from Carloseus »
it will most likely be around this new year, however they will show it to the world then. then a whole half year at least to ready the demand, and then release it into the public and watch as their so-thought over production of the game be torn off shelves and their entire inventory go drastically low. i think that blizzard will have a hard time distributing this product without people cannibalizing each other for one. fortunately i would emerge victorious, with probably 20 copies of the game which i would probably sell for higher prices here or other places. this gives me more money, and then i can quickly start preparing for hibernation of life as my body and mind focus on making my character godly.

Quests The story begins when Cain had fears of the outcome of the destruction of the world stone. Everyone agrees with Cain and requests you to find their long lost captain, Honto. Tyreal appears in the city as well for support.
1. Recover Arms-Search through the Icy Plateau (New area) for barbarian captain (Honto) to gain strength back. Honto then brings back a new merc. . .barb with ww and they weild a giant axe.
Honto tells everyone that there is going to be an invasion opun the city. 2. The Wake-The invasion has already begun. Honto has requested you to destroy a group of monsters that plan to strike first. A unique monster called Thatlicor (undead reanimate) is surrounded by tons of reanimate's and they actually move to the city walls! After destroying the group, Tyreal tells you that his choice to destroy the world stone wasn't his . . . The evil in the cave influenced him to destroy it. You then talk to Cain. He tells you more about what Tyreal has done. You then talk to Tyreal again and he tells you to go find the ancient artifact known as the Harali Stone. The Harali Stone was the artifact that help create the soul and world stones.
3. Harali Stone-You search for the Harali Stone in a portal he opens to that leads to Khanduras. You enter the portal and find Khanduras in ruins. Bodies everywhere, houses on fire, the whole nine yards. You go and destroy the monster who have done this and retrieve back the Harali Stone from the unique. You return to the city and give the Harali Stone to Tyreal. Tyreal starts acting strange, then he disappears. You talk to cain and he tells you that Tyreal has Baal's soul stone with him.
4. (Don't remember the name of this quest)-You seek out Tyreal in the ancient way and found him to corrupt the three ancients. They come to life and combat you once again.
My contact cannot remember the last four quests but to put in a vague way, you seek Tyreal out and eventually find him in the world stone chamber recreating a new evil stone for the soul purpose of bringing hell to the gates of mankind. He then disappears. You go back to the city and fight off a crap load of monsters that are invading the city. After you kill the super unique (immune to physical and is cold immune) the invasion stops. Cain tells you that you must track down Tyreal and stop him. Cain fears that with the Harali Stone he will attempt to recreate the soul stones and free the other evils.
I'm sorry to say, but can everyone finally come to the agreement that General_Ryan wanted attention/lied? He's on my list with FBIM/John. It'd make me feel better.
I think as soon as you saw some of the stuff like the class names and skills you could tell it was bullcrap. Fact is, they did a helluva job keeping D3 under wraps and props to them for keeping it so tight.
Yeah it was extremely obvious this kid was spewing a bunch of bullshit. But there were quite a bit of people that believed him. This douche still randomly comes back to the forums every 5 months and swears up and down he's not a liar. I wish he'd come back so I could mock him.
