The butcher could have used some hyping up in the buildup to the final boss of act 1. In all the other acts, you knew who you were gunning for, but the Butcher kinda comes out of nowhere with a pitiful introduction from Mahgda. How did the butcher come back after he was defeated in Diablo 1? I wanna know. Dont need anything super detailed, but at least some mention of it would be cool.
From what I understood, "The Butcher" is not necessarily the same we fought in D1. When you kill him you get a journal entry about "butcher demons", which means there are many of them. The name "The Butcher" is confusing though. Also, not sure if this is related to the butcher (because we don't know how old those writings are) but we find informations about cultists asking for flesh in order to summon demons when playing through the Halls of Agony.
So we've all bitched and bitched about the story, plot and characters. So let's be a little more constructive and see what we can do, eh?
What, specifically, would you change about the story, and how? What is your solution to those pressing storyline problems? Would you rewrite one character or scene? Or scrap everything and work from the ground up?
I would bring back Deckard Cain after we defeat Maltheal.
Cain would be reborn out of the Crystal Arch as the new Angel of Wisdom.
Or the hero(in) makes a baby with Eirena (Lyndon/Kormac), call him Deckard Cain and 80 years later in D4 we have a new Deckard Cain !
