Hello! If you download MPQ extractor you can rip audio files from the game itself, but if you mean the animated CGI Demon Hunter intro when they introduced the class, that's not actually part of the game installation and the music for it alone may be impossible to obtain. It may be possible that the music exists in a game file, but you'd have to search for it with MPQ extractor.

Check out the art section on the official diablo site to get an idea for what the official art looks like and what's been available. Other than posters sold in the blizzard store, you're probably not going to find much else. Diablo historically doesn't get much merchandise.
You might be better off getting high res art printed yourself.

The blue warpaint is very reminiscent of scottish warpaint (famously seen in the move Braveheart) but seems like that block color style was used more for the D3 Barbarian, rather than D2. The D2 Barb looks like he is wearing something closer to viking or norse paint/tattoos. Since it might be difficult to recreate exactly what you are looking for, a nice compromise might be an enlarged rune tattooed on your forearm in blue. Then it will be recognizably Diablo, and also have that Barbarian blue warpaint style you are looking for.

It's not just Blizzard that's changing. The entire AAA video game industry is imploding, with a few exceptions of course. I believe there is gonna be another crash like the one we had in '83. The signs are all there; lack of innovation, predatory monetization tactics, releasing incredibly buggy and unfinished products, Ivory tower syndrome, graphics and wow factor while game play takes a backseat, single serving gaming mentality (mobile gaming), alienation of core fan base and damaged reputations.
Companies that actually care to craft products of superb quality will come out of this ok, others are gonna fall far from grace (already happening). Indie and AA games will get the lions share of the "gamer" market in coming years. Indies are already on a massive upswing while AAA games are having increasingly poor numbers (there are a few that continue to grow and are exceptions).
This is just my honest opinion about things and in no way to be taken as facts. Research this on your own to come to your own conclusions.
I feel that this is the most accurate. I don't trust Activision Blizz, even tho I'm very hopeful for Diablo 4, any other new Diablo title, and even a tiny bit for immortal being fun to play. I used to expect top quality from Blizzard games and a dedicated team who valued gameplay and story over pushing microtransactions and money. Those who keep their integrity might make it to the other side, but AAA developers are already going down the shitter because people are tired of the predatory money grabbing and unfinished game releases.
Maybe we'll be pleasantly surprised by more news this coming year, maybe not, but I'm hopeful because I really love the Diablo series. I have loved it since I was ten watching my best friend play on her old shitty mac computer before I was able to purchase it for myself. I'm not willing to give up on it just yet.

I would guess it to be Khanduran or "common western kingdoms" but some of the Diablo books might get more specific.
The wiki has some info about languages also https://www.diablowiki.net/Sanctuary#/editor/4

Not only would I love an open world like that, I'd love it even more if it was in the style of Witcher 3 or similar.
But it seems as tho they're using the MMOARPG label to tell people that you can play with multiple individuals and the game is ARPG, but doesn't necessarily resemble the traditional MMO that we're used to. I assume this is because of Mobile limitations or an unwillingness to develop in between spaces.

I think if they had announced or said ANYTHING else about the "other projects" while also having diablo immortal it would have done a lot to stem the flood of disappointment. They started a hype train and got people excited for a game no one really asked for.
That said, while I am disappointed that it's a mobile game with D3 assets, I'm always interested in more lore/stories and zones to explore. I think there will be things to like in DI, but the platform is not ideal.

Quote from "https://us.diablo3.com/en/blog/22549433/" »we won’t be ready to announce all of our projects
Well, this could mean:
1) Community manager is trolling.
2) They show only D4 teaser/cinematic without anything else from D4 and not announcing its genre/gameplay etc.
3) They announce D4 and show gameplay as we predicted - this then leads to what? They are making Diablo World parallel with D4? Hitting both the aRPG and classic MMO genres with different games, but parallel story? Or going for next gen VR MMO game?
Could be any of these. We need more clues - that Adria comic coming soon?
I feel like the blog posts directly indicates that any kind of D4 announcement will be just about the only thing they AREN'T going to announce. A cinematic for a new game and gameplay I think is wishful thinking. But I'm looking forward to any news and comics, etc.

Diablo at its core has always been an ARPG dungeon crawler with heavy emphasis on item hunt. It would be a risk to deviate from that original model, but the culture surrounding those kinds of games has changed. I'm hoping to see a nice heavy ARPG element with that item hunt still present, but I really want set items and legendaries to change, I want runestones, and more build customization, I want to explore more zones and meet new characters and get good character development, and I want a creepier atmosphere.
Act V Reaper of Souls was heads and tails above the vanilla game in terms of characters, exploration, writing, and spookiness, and even the new zones were really interesting and creepy. It felt more like an M rated game. I want more time to explore and flesh out zones with things to do (questing perhaps?) I don't want an MMO, but I'd like a similar kind of experience, only with single player. I guess a bit like the Witcher, tho that would lose the top-down look of a dungeon crawler.
I'd love to see less quest driven dialogue that beats us over the head with telling us where to go so much that we could go through the motions asleep. Having to think for even 5 seconds about where we are, what we're looking for, and where we should be going would be an improvement. Diablo 2 never had a blinking yellow circle on the minimap telling you exactly where you needed to go. D3 was a little too linear with leading you through campaign by the nose. Also bosses were always too easy, normal mode was too easy. I think there was too much emphasis on making the game too accessible for new players. People aren't stupid, they can learn new things without it being dumbed down.
I'd be incredibly disappointed if the nephalem became an evil character, and I'd also be incredibly disappointed if everything was retconned. I LIKE the characters, I LIKE my characters, and I want them to do well. Making us choose between good and evil sounds lame tbh, because it's always been a game about maintaining the balance and fighting the minions of Hell. I don't want the characters I've grown to like to be forgotten, I just want them to be written better. I want the game to get a great lore treatment like so many of the diablo novels did.
This got a little long lol, but I'm very passionate about the characters and world, and I want to see more of it, and to see it handled well.
Edit: I personally don't much care for PVP, but I want it to be added to the game because I know a lot of people missed that. Also I think D3 still has a lot of cool end-game content that should stay, but some that needs heavy revision.

Quotes and direct reply don't seem to be working for me BUT-
I haven't played D2 in at least a year, so I see how some hints would be easy to miss, but I'm hesitant to be 100% sure about anything.
I like a lot of the possibilities brought up here: I'd love a D2 HD release, and I'd love an open world type of game, the only thing I want is for D3 to tie up its loose ends, which will hopefully be done with a DLC.
I'm cautiously optimistic, because we've been burned at every blizzcon since Reaper of Souls and Necro, but very hopeful that this time they're actually serious with some announcements lol.

They told us the same last year.
Nevalistis said for Blizzcon 2017:
"This year, we want to give you a heads-up that while Diablo will be on the show floor, we won’t be making any new Diablo announcements. There will be a time for that at some point in the future, but that time is not now."
So what do we get now? We know they work on Diablo4, but they are not ready to announce it. So hopefully we'll get an Diablo2 Remaster for the time we have to wait. That would be my last hope.
Last year they said they had no new announcements, this year they are saying they're not gonna announce everything they're working on. Those two statements seem pretty different imo.
They'll announce something other than switch, but who knows what it will be at this point. I'm just hoping that D3 will at least be "completed."
Sep 12, 2018Zooheaded posted a message on What Could the Rumored Netflix Diablo Series Look Like?Posted in: News
I like the story and characters, and I don't think the story was bad, however, the way it was handled in game left much to be desired: many characters were used as quest exposition vehicles, rather than given more character development (cough, Leah) and Belial was.....not clever at all? Despite being a mastermind and the lord of lies? Most of the dialogue was achingly bad, especially from the demon lords. There were a lot of great characters and a lot of fun lore exploration, fun items with flavor text, and interesting references to other pivotal characters, but they ruined an interesting story with VERY BAD cheesy-ass dialogue that still hurts me to listen to. Worse than World of Warcraft dungeon bosses, like...come on lol.
I actually didn't even care about Leah until after I read the book 'The Order' as it does a much better job making you love and feel for that character, and consequently, her fate becomes more painful.
D2 had a story of similar caliber, I wouldn't call it better, and I'd say that a lot of people have rose-tinted glasses for D2 (myself included but I digress lol) but because of how the story was handled in game, and how it was presented to us, it is much creepier because you aren't beaten over the head with bad dialogue. It was usually delivered in story chunks from characters, and then you'd go there and see the horror for yourself.
That said, the writing and direction/character development improved 3 fold in the D3 expansion, as Malthael was a much more scary villain than Diablo, Act V more interesting and better handled overall. I can only hope they have some great writers for their next project.
Also wasn't the netflix series dis-proven? Or is there new information?

I've been kind of wondering if Diablo really was the Prime Evil lately, to tell the truth,--
--mostly because of the whole episode with Belial.
I mean, by the time we get to Azmodan, he very clearly knows what Diablo's plan is and is fully aware of what's at stake. He tries to stop us but ultimately fails before the full power of a handful of Nephalem who he simply cannot stop. Belial, meanwhile, obviously knows... more than most... knowing about the Black Soulstone and having at least some inkling of what is going on. The fact that Azmodan knows so much suggests that, if nothing else, Belial should have been able to guess what was going on.
...so how come the Lord of Lies deceptions were so horribly bad..?
Most tellingly at all, at the end of the fight with Belial, the "illusion" vanishes and reveals that there was never a battle in the first place. The throne room is completely untouched, there's no signs of any struggle or conflict at all, and the entire battle might as well have not happened at all. Instead, there's a conveniently placed little soul for us to suck up with the Black Soulstone and some loot. We "defeat" Belial and move on.
It simply MAKES MORE SENSE if we never actually defeated Belial and his soul never actually made up the Prime Evil. Instead, we 'defeated' a Fake-Belial and gave Diablo a Fake-Belial-Soul which resulted in a Fake-Prime-Evil. Which'd explain why first Diablo and then Malthael were surprised that their power-up wasn't quite as impressive as they'd hoped it would be.
Probably not what actually happened but it lines up perfectly as far as I'm concerned. :-)
This is actually a pretty neat theory which would be cool if carried out correctly.
Unfortunately, it very much feels as though bad writing and implementation was ultimately responsible for Belial being such a lackluster villain (despite being kind of a cool fight). There was so much more that could have been done to convince us that the child emperor was telling the truth, but they even had the same voice actor, and we never get to flesh out our time there or even go inside the palace other than a single "throne room" with lazy design. We don't even really go into the city. In the book The Order, Belial is the puppetmaster to the book's villain, and at the end they make mention of the child that is to be crowned emperor of caldeum. So it seems like this was in Belial's future plan.
I'm hoping the writing will really improve for the new game, even more than it improved for Reaper of Souls.
That said, Mephisto is my favorite Lord of Hell, and I really hop we get another chance to fight him, and I very much enjoy these little lore write-ups :>

Most looking forward to? Pretty much gonna need some kind of Diablo announcement or I'm gonna be mad for another year lol. But I'll probably be buying a virtual ticket as there's always some fun to be had. :>

Welcome to the fold! I'll probably be playing either Demon Hunter or Necromancer again because I'm grimdark trash.

A minor correction though: we do NOT visit Kingsport during the events of Reaper of Souls, it is stated by a guard in the square that Kingsport's prisoners had been transferred to Westmarch due to current events. We only visit the Westmarch prison to find Lyndon's brother unfortunately already dead. However there was some patch notes that spoke of a yet-to-be-implemented follower quest where we DO visit Kingsport and confront Rhea about her supposed crimes.
Great write-up! And I hope to God we get to see some of these places someday...

I agree, not a HUGE deal, but it kinda removes the point of season exclusive. Just as WoW raid achievement mounts never being taken away removes the real significance of getting them (even though it's great to still get that bone dragon from ICC and etc) some things should stay exclusive no matter how much people cry.
Can you imagine the outrage from players who knew all about seasonal transmogs and refused to play seasons and don't even like the transmogs? Psych 101. People want what they can't have, even if they'll never make use of it. Blizz knows this. People STILL rage over the Blizzcon transmogs, despite knowing that people paid for them.
Also, since most of us likely have not memorized the precise requirements to get each season conquest, it would be great if when you view them on the D3 site it has a quick blurb of what they actually are so we don't have to look up every single one separately. uNLESs it says somewhere and I missed it?
Sep 5, 2014Zooheaded posted a message on Changes to Leveling Bounties, Major Hotfixes!, Fresh Meat N' Greet, Round 3 Livestream VOD, Vita UEE Off-Screen GameplayI'm pretty disappointed that the changes to these specific bounties was not made until after seasons had already started, it seems pretty obvious to me that they should have been fixed long before this. That said, I'm glad that the devs are paying attention to issues like this that cheapen the game, but I wish there was a better solution than just removing them entirely, it harms variety. Perhaps a better solution would be to change the bounties to make it so it require the killing of a spawned elite to complete.Posted in: News
