Two things I've seen that were essential on the previous board but which doesn't really work out all too well here:
1. It's hard to see which threads have new posts; currently there's an extremely thin black line to the left of the thread name. Constantly squinting and leaning in towards the screen whenever one enters a new forum is not a pleasant experience. Either making the line much more noticeable or bringing back the old design where unread threads were bold and read threads weren't would be much obliged.
2. There's no easy way to go to the first unread post of a thread. I have to click the tiny little arrow first to get a preview and from there go to the first unread, rather than through one click going to the first unread, as was possible under the previous design.
3. This isn't as big of a deal, but the Wysiwyg interface isn't my cup of tea. And that you can turn it off is great, but this also prevents you from using all the nifty buttons that bold text or create lists. In the previous version, there was no wysiwyg interface, but it was still possible to mark a piece of text and haave it all turned into a list. If this can be brought back, so that it is active while the wysiwyg interface is disabled in the top left of the posting window, it would be great. Essentially what I want is to be able to push the buttons without having the formatting applied to my reply window.

I don't know what you or Ralsu have read, but including Tyrael there are only five angels on the council. The vote was 3 in favor ( Tyrael, Auriel, Itherael), 1 against ( Imperius) and 1 abstained ( Malthael).Quote from Rimuladas
I just finished the Sin War books. If i recall, its was 2 for destruction, 2 against distruction, 1 abstain and then Tyrael's vote making it 6. (angels)
Nov 13, 2011Posted in: News & AnnouncementsHere we go again. Following in the proud tradition (ha!) of the previous bi-weekly wiki series, we'll be showing what's going on in the wiki every Sunday from now on. We'll be giving you a roundup of what's happened over the last few days and what is currently being discussed and planned over there. Feel free to chime in on what's going on in the wiki if you find a section where you want to help out. With that in mind, let's kick off this first week.
The class skill pages have been updated with additional information such as resource costs and cooldowns. Check out the Barbarian, or any other class, for the change.
The entirety of our Diablo II items, comprising every normal, exceptional, elite, unique, set, rune word and crafted item have been moved to the data namespace by Apoc. This may not say you anything, but it allows the item data to be used in much more flexible ways. So if someone would like to make item lists for Diablo II items (I'm looking at you kahdrick ;)) this would now be possible.
The recent patch changes pretty much every single item we had in the wiki, and Sinate and Wynthyst have been hard at work to update all of it. It's not yet finished but a good chunk is done.
Some new maps have been added to the fixed areas of the game, such as The Weeping Hollow. Thanks goes to soulzek for creating these maps for us!
There's also some brand new and rewritten lore articles in the wiki for your reading pleasure by yours truly: Baal, Lilith, Great Evils and many others have been updated with the latest lore information. Spoilers are of course present.
What's Being Discussed?
Talkerst has drawn up some ideas on new template documentation for the wiki to make it easier to figure out just what the hell one is supposed to do if one wants to help out. Check it out here and the discussion about it here.
The main page is also (once again) regoing a redesign. Two proposed layouts are up for discussion, the Box Layout and the List Layout. Chime in on the discussion here if you have any preferences.
Nov 6, 2011Over the last few years, many of us lore fans have felt left out in the cold. Warcraft has seen its universe expand exponentially over the years, and Starcraft, with Starcraft II released and all, has certainly received a similar boost. But now the time has come for all Diablo fans to rejoice in the expanded Diablo universe. Several new, interesting sources of information have recently come to light, the Book of Cain, the Blizzcon Lore Panel and the Black Soulstone Cinematic all give us new pieces of both the overarching lore and the Diablo III story puzzle. With that in mind, let's dig into these three and see what they have to offer.Posted in: News & Announcements
(No datamined information though)
The Book of Cain
This elusive book, recently covered by the late Sixen, appeared on Amazon.com some time ago before quickly disappearing. But now we can all rejoice as it has appeared once again and can be preordered. Release is scheduled for mid december, and it's going to be a treat for lore fans.
What the Book of Cain is trying to accomplish is to clarify and unify the currently canonical lore. And the fans are appreciating it, with the preorders sky-rocketing. As anyone who has ever debated over these things will tell you, Diablo lore is very sparse and contradicting at times. Combining information from two games over a decade old, three canonical novels and five that are not really canon, coupled with the speculation regarding D3, gets pretty muddled. The Book of Cain aims to rectify these discrepancies between lorebits and bridge the gaps between the Diablo books.
Inside its pages are many different things. For the first time ever, we're given a creation myth and an explanation of where angels and demons come from, detailed profiles on all Great Evils (and presumably Angiris Council angels as well), an account of Sanctuary's history as well as Deckard Cain's personal experiences during the events of Diablo I and II.
Many will undoubtedly wonder whether it will introduce a large amount of retcons into the continuity, and at this point it's impossible to tell just how much has been rewritten or ignored from previously established lore. What we have seen so far from Blizzard however, both in terms of the books and the current Diablo III Beta, is that they prefer to clarify previously murky areas with some small changes rather than change large swathes of information. The prime example of this from the previews we have is the creation myth: it depicts two great beings, Anu and Tathamet, who battle and in their deaths spawn the High Heavens and Burning Hells. We didn't know anything about their origins before, and so it expands on our current knowledge without destroying much of it in the process.
The book totals 148 pages, complete with Blizzard artwork throughout all of the pages, so there's certainly tons of information in it. If you want to stay up to date on the lore in the future, this book will be the one to get.
Check out the publishers page, Insighted.com, or our our wiki for the preview images.
Blizzcon Lore Panel
Reported by ScyberDragon last weekend, the Lore Panel was a first for the Diablo series. The panel begun with mostly the preview information we had about the book of Cain as well as a more detailed account of the lore from the //www.diablowiki.com/index.php?title=Sin_War_Novels">Sin War Novels" class="wiki-link">//www.diablowiki.com/index.php?title=Sin_War_Novels">Sin War Novels"/> Sin War Novels. After that they kicked in with some detailed descriptions of both Azmodan and Belial and a few brand new areas before rounding it off with questions.
While the panel, coupled with all the other information, didn't necessarily give a lot of groundbreaking information, it was very nice to see an entire panel dedicated to it. They did stress that they don't want to upset the lore with tons of new arbitrary changes, much like we saw above in regards to the Book of Cain. The most telling example here was probably the Aidan, the Dark Wanderer who has now been made into the eldest son of King Leoric. The change is markant to be sure, but it has also been implemented very smoothly without disrupting much. Tidbits have had to be retconned, but the larger picture remains clear and better for it I believe. Blizzard really wants to develop the lore and story in a powerful yet continuous way it would seem.
The Black Soulstone Cinematic
Now for the juicy part. By now I assume all of you have already seen it and that any of you who are interested in the lore about it have taken a dive into the Lore Forum, but I'll provide a brief summary just in case.
Leah writes in book, looks at Black Soulstone, has vision of Azmodan and his demon army invading from Arreat Crater. Azmodan also tries to chat her up, but ends up making her cry. He should probably work on that routine of his.The finer details of this cinematic are quite interesting. The initial reaction people have, other than being mind-blown with the quality of it, is the rather weird talk sequence between Leah and Azmodan. Why is he even talking to her? If we however substitute Leah for Diablo, the conversation (monologue really) starts to make a lot more sense.
This has of course caused a lot of speculation to spring up, not only here on DiabloFans but over on the Battle.net forum as well. Is it Diablo he's talking to, or the Horadrim/Belial/Tyrael/Deckard Cain/Bob/Leah/someone else? We don't know, but we haven't had this much speculation since D3 was announced three years ago!
Note: No datamined spoilers in this thread.
This has to be mentioned too, whether you like it or not. Datamined stuff has been appearing since the beta started, and it does hint at some specific plot developments pretty strongly. However finding it all was a little troublesome, and so Daemaro compiled it all into one huge spoiler thread. If you want all the information currently available to us, you will have to check that too. I won't spoil any here though, but do check it out if you want to.
Oct 22, 2011Posted in: Lore & Storyline
Likely something along with what the original soulstones contained, i.e. the Prime Evils themselves. What no one seems to be asking is where the soulstone came from, how does it fit with the established story laid out in the preivious games? When was it created?Quote from Krayzieone
Although, he refers to the black soulstone as "the key". He already tells us that he is about to ravage Sanctuary just to find the damn thing. So the BS (black soulstone) is a key to something bigger than just ruling Sanctuary. Now, since we know from past Diablo experiences, soulstones are used to contain the essence of demons or maybe even other things. What could this soulstone contain that is so important?
Assuming that Azmodan is speaking to Diablo rather than Leah herself, and that Diablo intended to fool all Great Evils, perhaps the Black Soulstone is his failsafe, his wa to return to life after death. Perhaps it was intended to be used by all the Three, perhaps with it Azmodan can usurp their powers. Regardless of which, it would seem reasonable to assume tha the Black Soulstone is somehow linked to the power of the Three.
It makes no sense. Azmodan is still alive, so why wouldn't his throne be empty? And if it's cause he's in Hell, who are the other two guys with him?
All the thrones are occupied, except one. The big, red, nasty one. If my thoery is correct, and the creatures are the real form of the evils, it would mean that one of them is still alive, active and running around. And as the throne is a big, red, nasty one, I'll just guess it belongs to Diablo.
Angels would certainly have been screwing with them as well, but I agree that he's most likely referring to a demon, and given Leah's heritage, likely Diablo. If for no other reason that the fact that Diablo is the principle villain of the game and it would make the most sense for him to lead such a ploy.
This makes me believe that Leah, or the thing inside leah, is not a good one. A good creature wouldn't be fooling the demons, it wouldn't be leading the demons into traps. A good creature, let's say, an nephalem or an archangel, would be slaying them, or vanquishing them. Not fooling them. Not setting traps for them. Only one of their inner circle would responsable for setting traps in the way.
Which assumes Tyrael is dead, something I hightly doubt. I think Tyrael would have survived the explosion of the Worldstone plenty easily.Quote from Jinshin
I think what makes the Black Soulstone so powerful is that is the last fragment of the World Stone; and possesses the spirits of both Tyrael and Baal.
The Black Soulstone will of course still be the last fragment of the Worldstone though if we assume Baal's soulstone was destroyed after the end of LoD.
Agreed, I think the new creation myth provides a much necessary back drop for the lore and an explanation for the driving forces behind Heaven and Hell, but I don't expect us to ever see a fully fledged return of Anu and Tathamet. If the story is even to be interpreted literally.
To become Tathamet he would have to, like, absorve every single demon and evil doer in the galaxy. As I said the other day, I dont think they'll bring the Anu and Tathamet thing in the game. And if they do, it would probably be just to explain the origin of the cosmos.
Or it is exactly what he has learned, and the very reason he's searching for it.Quote from Dauroth
What if the Black Soulstone holds the souls of the Prime Evils. Tyrael said that they were banished back into the Black Abyss, but what if that's not the case. If Leah is carrying a fragment of Diablo's soul inside her, perhaps Diablo needs that very fragment of his soul in order to free himself from the Black Soulstone. If this is true, it would appear that Azmodan has no knowledge about this
Oct 9, 2011Posted in: News & Announcements
DiabloFans has seen a veritable onslaught of new information in the last few weeks. The Friends & Family Beta start, leaked information, community site updates, skill calculators, live streams and then finally the start of the Closed Beta have all come. It has been very exciting, but for those few (read: 99.98%) who have in fact not gotten access to the beta, it's been less about the gameplay and more about what is actually in the game.
Wading through this information has partly been like hunting treasure, and partly like bleeding your eyes to death. And sometimes your ears. But since few find that fun, we're doing our best to consolidate the available information in the wiki.
As some of you may have noticed, the main page of the wiki has had a lot of new stuff added to it lately. Perhaps you've browsed the main page and continued from there, or perhaps you've been directed there from elsewhere.
Most of this information is still very hard to get a good grip on. Try browsing through the item category and while pretty much every item in Diablo III is placed here, you're likely not going to get very much out of it unless you know exactly what you're looking for.
Similarly, we have around a thousand new images (and we're not done yet) that have yet to be placed in any specific categories, making it even worse to navigate.
Add to that the 3,000 affixes, hundreds of crafting recipes and, well, I think you get the point.
Indeed. Now that the information is in the wiki, it's time to structure it and make it more useful for everybody. A couple of these things have already been started, but there's much more to do. Here's a quick overview of what's been happening in the wiki recently.
The various skills (for instance the wizard skills) have all been added to the wiki. And fellow member Talkerst has dedicated a lot of time recently to updata all skill information in the wiki to make sure it's up to data as well as pleasing to the eye. You can see the results to far on the various class pages, such as the Demon Hunter. The discussion about these changes has been happening in the wiki forum.
The item data is currently being reworked into all kinds of lists for easy viewing (like Chest Armor List) but it doesn't stop there. Armor tier pages, set pages, crafting templates, lots of stuff has to be done in the item department. And you can help out with this if you want to! Head over to The item list thread and check it out. If you want to create one yourself, you can use the Help:Item page as a reference.
For stuff that isn't currently also available in one form or another on Blizzard's site, there's also a project started up to create area pages for all known places in the beta. You can see an idea of what's happening on the New Tristram page. So if you're in the beta, or know information from the beta, don't hesitate to create addditional pages similar to this one.
Well, this sounds positively intriguing!
I sure hope so, otherwise this article would have been a pretty big time waste that I could have spent doing more important stuff. Like sleeping.
But if it does sound interesting to you, then I urge you to hop over to the wiki forum and of course the wiki itself to take a peek at what needs doing and lend a hand where needed. You should also check the //www.diablowiki.com/Diablo_Wiki:Community_Portal">Community Portal" class="wiki-link">//www.diablowiki.com/Diablo_Wiki:Community_Portal">Community Portal"/> Community Portal if you want to get updates on what's happening and what needs doing. This is a tumultuous but interesting time for us DiabloFans and the wiki, and it would be a shame for any of you to miss this opportunity in helping develop our community further. If you're interested, ask any of us sysops how to get started or look over the Help page.

I think that's a somewhat unfair assessment. True, you could guess who +'ed you if we had a list like this, but people would still only be able to give others +rep. So the only scheme people could come up with would be "I rep you, you rep me". And that can still be achieved right now through a simple PM.Quote from Magistrate
People would guess on context who gave them the plus rep and rep in turn. It turned into a bloated, unrealistic representation of approval, with everyone just repping other people in order to get repped. It was just like spamming with posts, except with +rep.
The core problem of the older system was that it showed where you received negative rep. Any person is more or less going to react negatively to being down-repped, and that information was definitely something people used in order to guess who did it to them. But very few are going to be upset for not being repped to begin with.
That being said, unless such a function is available in IPBoard, there not much we could do even if we wanted to.

Feb 13, 2012Looks like I went and pissed everyone off. Again. *Sigh*Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)
My stance has come from an objective look at the world. I don't think I said my stance was objective? (Maybe I did? My memory becomes worse and worse every day...) Anyway, my stance is anything but objective. That being said, if there was empirical evidence of the existence of the god of the Bible, Quran, TaNaKh, or Bagavad Gita, then I would convert to that religion immediately. The chances of that evidence ever showing up, though, are very very slim from what I can tell. But if it does, I'll be the first to say that I was wrong.
I'm sorry, I'm not sure I understand the difference in information and knowledge?
And Christianity is not alone. I have similar views of Islam as well. I am currently studying Judaism and Hinduism. If either of them make sense and agree with the world, then I will convert. If they are in opposition to the world, then I will laugh at them. This is the only way I can deal with absurd claims.
Actually, reverse the roles. Religion is the football player, and I am the geek. The difference is that Atheists (the geeks) are finally starting to go to the gyms and bulk up.
Well, Richard Dawkins has a scale of 1 to 7 where 1 is absolutely believe in any deity, and 7 is absolutely no belief in any deity. He puts himself at 6.5, but I do disagree with him. I'm closer actually to 6. While I think there is no deity, and I am almost 100% certain there is no deity, I cannot know for certain, and the uncertainty is enough to keep me wondering. Does that make sense?
I don't think I am picking on anybody?
Quote from GladHeHasBeta
i condemn christianity as a whole for the same reasons i condemn black people as a whole
93% that ive met are fucked up, its just easier to hate them as a whole.
why do stereotypes exist? because they are TRUTHHHHHH.......................... most of the time
Go somewhere else and talk about that, because that's not right. There are very good people that are Christian, just as there are very good people that are black.
Very, very uncool dude.

I'd also suggest checking out the vitaldnb, vitalelectro, and vitaldubstep channels on youtube. You'll find a lot of underground rising artists there.
As for a couple tracks to get you started, here are some of my favorites. Suggest selecting the highest quality on each video as the video quality also affects audio quality.
Jan 3, 2012One further question.Posted in: DiabloWiki
Does it matter if the Recipe lists are added onto their own template like page and then pulled from the template onto the respective craftsman's page?
"Template:Mystic Recipe List "
"Template:Blacksmith Recipe List"
"Template:Jeweler Recipe List "
On each, the list of the recipes are being pulled from their data pages into one big table/list
At that point the lists are then pulled from their respective templates to be displayed on their craftsman's page...
Only thing is I'm trying to think of a reason that it be good to have a list of all the recipes stored on their own page be it that of a Template or a normal page.
These are the current Formulas missing pages for the mystic This is going off the current formulas on the page:

Jan 3, 2012Okay basically what I'm talking about is that when your viewing D2 items on the wiki the item displays will show the unique or set item that spawns from that particular item..Posted in: DiabloWiki
Take the Giant Axe for instance. Underneath the title is supposed to be a link to the unique item Humongous...
Now both of the links attached to the names take you to their data page on the wiki..
- Note how on Humongous' data page that the link to the Giant Axe also dosn't work...
My personal guess is that it would have to be something to do with the item display template or something to do with redirecting links not existing. With the likely cause of the links not working being the shift of all D2 namespaces having (Diablo II) appended to the end of them.
Jan 2, 2012I had this random though pop into my head while viewing the main page of the wiki... why does it no have a direct link to the main page of diablo fans site? (sans the little link at the bottom where it has all the different curse sites)Posted in: DiabloWiki
I mean it has a little picture icon containing DiabloFans.com and under it links to recent new posts but no link to the main page.... the icon just links to the page where the picture is stored.
Am I just blind or what here?
Dec 10, 2011Lemme see if I can channel my inner republican a moment...Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)
OK! Protesting is stupid. Anyone with enough free time to protest is a useless hippie and a drain on society. That goes double to anyone who's parents have money, because those kids didn't EARN anything! Of course, people shouldn't be taxed for being successful and therefor their offspring are almost guaranteed to be a generation of spoiled, useless, rotten hippie filth, BUT THAT IS WHY WE HAVE POLICE AND JAIL!
Laws are written to be followed. Even very banal laws like "don't loiter," are absolutely keystone to the conduct of a smooth society. What's more, I am sick and tired of every hippie and his hackey-sack taking pot-shot jokes at police and other law enforcement! Everyone knows that once a man puts on the uniform he immediately becomes inscrutably honest, up-right, and deserving of the benefit in EVERY doubt. Sure, there may be some bad apple policemen who've shot and killed innocent youngsters in the housing projects of our cities, but that is a SMALL price to pay for the safety and well-being of our middle-class suburban neighborhoods!
Finally, I've had it up to HERE with poor people. SERIOUSLY, I HAVE HAD IT! They claim to be "disabled veterans," or people "born into low-income families with little or no access to secondary education." Well guess what scumbags? I was born into a HARD-SCRABBLE lower-middle-class household where we only had ONE CAR! Can you believe that?! We were so poor, my family had to no buy a second car just to send me to college! When my father-in-law gave me a six-figure job, it wasn't because I was related to him. It was because I was the best goddamn vice-president of middle-management financial analysis advisory secretary around! Nepotism is a joke because it never really happens. Just like there is no such thing as luck. Only the strong survive and I am living proof of that. After all. I'm relatively successful and I think that I'm strong. Therefor, anyone who isn't successful is naturally weak and probably not worth helping.
God bless America, a christian nation that was definitely not founded by deists. A place where, hopefully soon, the right to vote will again be limited to those who own property, or perhaps shares in blue-chip stocks. I have to get back to the O'Riley factor. He's going to call that smug little liberal juden John Stewart a traitor bound for hell. I need to record it for our Sunday school class.
Oct 25, 2011Making this thread to clear up a lot of the confusion for people who just want to know what's going on.Posted in: Lore & Storyline
Okay let's start with people's code names and who they are:
AngirisCouncil_Malthael Widegirth Trotters, Formerly the Aspect of Wisdom
AngirisCouncil_Auriel Widegirth Azteca, the Aspect of Hope
AngirisCouncil_Itherael Widegirth fellpony, the Aspect of Fate
AngirisCouncil_Imperius Widegirth Arabians, the Aspect of Valor
AngirisCouncil_Bridle Widegirth Bridle, the Aspect of Justice
Lore_LordsofHell_Saddle Saddle, the Lord of Lies
Lore_LordsofHell_Fetlock Fetlock, the Lord of Sin
Lore_Cydaea Cydaea, the Maiden of Lust
Lore_Ghom Ghom, the Lord of Dressage
Okay so we can match up who the Angiris council is really easy. Trotters is Malthael, Azteca is Auriel, fellpony is Itherael, Arabians is Imperius and Bridle is Tyrael.
The demons can also be matched up easy with their titles. Fetlock is Azmodan, Saddle is Belial, then Cydea and Ghom are Azmodans two sin lieutenants that will be in the game.
Next let's take a look at Saddle-Belial's encounters:
A2_Saddle_Room_01_InstructionEnter You are about to enter
A2_Saddle_Room_01_LocationText Saddle's Throne Room
A2_Saddle_Room_01_TauntText Your only escape will be death, yours... or his.
A2_Saddle_Room_01_InformationText Once you enter the throne room the rest of your party will be able to teleport directly into the fight
Saddle_Encounter_Name Boss: The Battle for Caldeum
Saddle_Taunt_Text Defeat Saddle, Lord of Lies!
is about to begin
Saddle_Enter_Instruction You are about to begin
Saddle_Info_Text The rest of your party will be able to teleport in once you enter
A2_SaddleAudience_Encounter_Name The Imperial Throne Room of Emperor Hakan II Event
A2_SaddleAudience_Taunt_Text Warn the boy emperor of the machinations of Saddle!
A2_SaddleAudience_Enter_Instruction You are about to enter
is about to enter
A2_SaddleAudience_Info_Text The rest of your party will be able to teleport in once you enter
As you can see you are rushing to warn The boy emperor Hakkan II of Belial's plots. So I don't think Belial is Hakkan II.
Let's next visit Fetlock-Azmodan's events:
Fetlock_Encounter_Name Boss: Fetlock's Lair
Fetlock_Taunt_Text Defeat the Lord of Sin!
is about to enter
Fetlock_Enter_Instruction You are about to enter
Fetlock_Info_Text The rest of your party will be able to teleport in once you enter
Doesn't tell us a whole lot.
Let's take a look at Adria now:
A2_AdriaSewer_Encounter_Name Adria's Prison Event
A2_AdriaSewer_Taunt_Text Free Spot's mother from the minions of Saddle!
is about to enter
A2_AdriaSewer_Enter_Instruction You are about to enter
A2_AdriaSewer_Info_Text The rest of your party will be able to teleport in once you enter
A3_AdriaBetrayal_Encounter_Name Triumph Event
A3_AdriaBetrayal_Taunt_Text Fetlock is dead. Celebrate your victory!
is about to witness
A3_AdriaBetrayal_Enter_Instruction You are about to witness
A3_AdriaBetrayal_Info_Text The rest of your party will be able to teleport in once you enter
So we free "Spot's mother". Spot is obviously Leah. AdriaBetrayal event? And it ends with killing Azmodan? Could Azmodan be Adria? Or possessed her? Who knows.
Let's move on to Spot-Leah's:
A1_LeahReining_Encounter_Name The End of the Horadrim Event
A1_LeahReining_Taunt_Text You may already be too late...
is about to witness
A1_LeahReining_Enter_Instruction You are about to witness
A1_LeahReining_Info_Text The rest of your party will be able to teleport in once you enter
Too late for what? To stop her being possessed? The end of the horadrim event? So she's going to die maybe?
Now let's move on to Bridle-Tyrael:
BridleRitual_Encounter_Name Cells of the Condemned Event

Cell's of the condemned? What's Tyrael condemned for and what ritual is taking place?
Now this next part involved "ponies" which a lot of people have considered to be a secret pony level, which it may well be but it almost seems like it's referring to a place: The High Heavens maybe?

Notice "The battle for ponies has begun". So it looks like we have a fight involving 1000 monsters and at some point Bridle-Tyrael has a purpose in it. Could he be sacrificing himself to save whatever ponies is? Who knows.
Then we have this:
BigRed_Izual The Betrayer
BigRed_A_Unique Herald of Diablo
Diablo The Prime Evil
Izual is the Herald of Diablo. It also seems like Diablo succeeded where Azmodan failed and becomes THE prime evil.
These are some timed events:
PoniesPurificationTimer Purification Timer
DiabloFight_Phase1_Timer Reverse the corruption of the Crystal Arch
Event_Bridge_BlazeOfGlory Withstand the demon attack!
a4dun_Garden_HellPortal_TimedEvent Time until the Gateway to Hell closes
a4dun_Garden_HellPortal_2_TimedEvent Time until the Gateway to Hell closes
a4dun_Garden_HellPortal_1_TimedEvent Time until the Gateway to Hell closes
Once again we're fighting Diablo to reverse the corruption of the Crystal Arch (for those of you who haven't read any of the Book of Cain that's the structure in The High Heavens that angels are birthed from.) We're also Purifying "Ponies", in my opinion The High Heavens, and buying time until the Gateway to Hell closes.
Well I think that sums up a lot of what I wanted to convey. I hope for those of you looking for answers this solves some mysteries, those of you not wanting any answers, why are you in here I said HUGE SPOILERS.
For a bonus here's a bit about the Black Soulstone:
