Emblazoned with the emblem of the Horadrim and featuring over 140 pages of tantalizing text, Diablo III: Book of Tyrael is a stunning follow-up to Diablo III: DiabloWikiBook of Cain, delving even further into the realm of Sanctuary and the individuals who shaped its fate. In this beautifully-illustrated and comprehensive tome, the Archangel of Wisdom reveals never-before-known secrets about the history of the world, the dark threats that yet face mankind, and his decision to join the ranks of humanity as a mortal. It also includes letters from Leah and additional fragments of Cain’s writings, all curated by Tyrael as he weaves together a series of complex and fascinating stories for future generations.

In addition, Diablo III: Book of Tyrael features a fully removable illustration of the Leoric family tree and other influential characters from Old Tristram including Deckard Cain, Prince Albrecht, Archbishop Lazarus, King Leoric, Prince Aidan, Queen Asylla, Leah, and Adria.

In preparation for its release in October, Insight Editions has launched a special landing page for this remarkable companion book. Adventurers keen to journey deeper into the depths of Sanctuary’s lore and experience every last inch of this heavenly artifact can visit Insight Edition’s site for more details about Diablo III: Book of Tyrael.

Interested in reserving a copy of your own? Make sure to place your preorders to be among the first to experience this new chapter in Sanctuary’s continuing saga.

You’ve got to hand it to Tyrael. After eternity as a floating glowing occasionally-nagging angel thing he crashes to earth in a fireball, suffers amnesia, gets tortured by halfwit Cultists, regains his memory, and then while tagging along and issuing useless advice during the hero’s journey through Alcarnus and the pit formerly known as Mt. Arreat, he somehow finds time to write and illustrate a history book in the exact style and handwriting of the recently-deceased Deckard Cain. Meanwhile most humans alive today can hardly manage a five page book report, and we’ve got Wikipedia to copy from!

  1. Anyone who knows who Malthus is?? (Middle picture from http://tyrael.insighteditions.com/)

    • In demonology, Malthus (also Halphas, Malthas, or Malthous) is an Earl of Hell, commanding 26 legions of demons, who is said to have a rough voice when speaking. He is often depicted in the shape of a stork.
      Malthus builds towers and fills them with ammunition and weapons, an armorer of sorts. He is a prince of Hell. He is also said to send his legions into battle, or to places designated by higher commanding demons.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malthus_(demon)

    • He looks a lot like Maluus, the demon from the Sword of Justice comic.

  2. Something else to note. When this article went up, the text read;

    \In this beautifully-illustrated and comprehensive tome, the former Archangel of Wisdom reveals never-before-known secrets about the history of the world, the dark threats that yet face mankind, and his decision to join the ranks of humanity as a mortal.\

    It has since been changed to omit \former\ which is pretty curious.

    The preview pages shown also give a lot of hints.

    -Giant demon that looks like a mixture of the primes
    -The \familiar faces\ link seems like a hint
    -The passage about Tyrael fleeing heaven at the end of D3
    -The picture of a demon titled \Malthus\

  3. The left picture says Temple of Triune (misspelled)

    We may be going here: http://www.diablowiki.net/Triune

    Sounds like a hell of a place =]

    • How is it misspelled?

      Also, it’s not referring to an actual place but rather the cult organization the worships the prime evils. ;P

      • Pic is named truine instead of triune with the word temple and yes this location exists as in temple with 3 big towers, one for each Diablo, mephisto and baal

  4. Also, there is a new teaser up on the forums at the official Chinese fan site d.163.com, sources are saying this site has been enlisted by Blizzard to show a teaser image that is slowly being revealed behind a burning page;

    http://bbs.d.163.com/forum.php

    The image has changed 4 times so far with the burnt holes becoming increasingly bigger and numerous.

    The image behind seems to show angels..

  5. I hope we get to fight the dude on slide 6, whoever that is.

  6. Look at the top of the page, it’s a piece of parchment that is burning away.
    It has been updated over the last few days to slowly reveal more and more.

    Here is an animated gif of the progress so far;
