The DiabloWikiBook of Tyrael, a work of Diablo 3 merchandise that uses a great deal of original artwork, plus story and lore about the world of Sanctuary to set up and flesh out events between the end of D3V and the start of D3X. It’s a sort of sequel to the Book of Cain, and it’s available now (or soon™), from online sources and probably in brick and mortal bookstores near you.

    The official product description:

    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.

    The release date has shifted for this product, and while it was originally set for October 22nd, a number of readers recently reported Amazon.com emails telling them it was going to ship sooner than expected. If you view the Amazon.com page now, it still says October 22n for the release, but also promises you’ll have it by October 15th if you order one-day shipping. In any event, if you pre-ordered you should have it soon, if you don’t already.

    A few fans have reported copies in their hands already, and since I’m not Vaeflare I’m saying spoil away. Put full details about anything and everything interesting in comments of this post, and if you don’t want to read them, don’t click through.

    If you want to catch up without risk of spoilers, check out the DiabloWiki.net Book of Tyrael article. It’s got more product details and a selection of sample pages from the book.

    Update: HolyKnight picked up a copy at his local Barnes and Noble, says the book is gorgeous and took some pics that you can see in the Merchandise gallery. The big one is a fold-out, map-sized Leoric family tree, suitable for wall decoration.
