Leah’s Ring Changing


I heard from a few readers late last week, when the two teased images from the cinematic were posted, about the golden band on DiabloWikiLeah‘s ringfinger. Was this a sign that she was married? Plot twist!

I didn’t think it meant that, if only because it was her right hand, and it’s the left hand that traditionally wears the wedding ring. I didn’t think to compare the ring to older pics though, which is why I found it interesting when Duncast mailed to point out a change — Leah wore the ring on her pinkie in the cinematic reveal, back in 2008.

I’d say this has even less significance than the left hand vs. right hand question. As we saw during the Cinematic Panel at Blizzcon, Blizzard makes as many changes and iterations on the designs in the cinematics as in their games, and from the dates showing on the border of many WiP shots, they were mostly done in 2009 and 2010; long after that June 2008 preview cinematic was completed. Someone at some point thought the ring would look better on her ringfinger, and would probably help balance the hand a bit more, with some sort of demarcation on a central finger.

Or maybe she’s actually married. Secretly. On the wrong hand. To Diablo Azmodan. And now she’s going to have his demon-baby, etc. Spoilers!

  1. Flux…
    I understand you are excited for Diablo, but pointing out these things on the main page with a spoiler at the *end* of the news alert is a amateurish thing to do. Please don’t spoil possible plot twists for the game on the front page without some sort of warning.
    Thanks,
    Isaak

    • I agree this kind of stuff is a bit far fetched, random speculation really belongs on the forums rather than the front page.

      • Oh for crying out loud if you’re not interested scroll on by, don’t click on the news story to spend even more time commenting on it.  You’ve got free will, use it instead of bleating about what is and isn’t of interest.

  2. “I didn’t think it meant that, if only because it was her right hand, and it’s the left hand that traditionally wears the wedding ring.”
    so cute how flux, the papa nerd (he s around 40 i think), tell s us kids how the world works. (not ironic)

    • Sometimes try to imagine that not everyone knows the exact same thing that you do.  The first person who mentioned the ring to me was from China, and thought it was a wedding ring, since he didn’t know the right vs. left hand custom in the US.

  3. There are places where a wedding band is worn on the right hand–Germany is one such place.

  4. FLUX YOU RUINED THE STORY FOR ME

    • Erm nothing is ruined and yes this should be on the front page as it’s fun speculation.

      And believe it or not, some people so care about the the plot, details and cinematics. Besides there is a TON of stuff on the front page, something for everybody.

  5. That’s why I love this site, completely irrelevant detail which no one cares about go on the front page.

    • Oh for crying out loud if you’re not interested scroll on by, don’t click on the news story to spend even more time commenting on it.  You’ve got free will, use it instead of bleating about what is and isn’t of interest.!

  6. While I do agree that this post is completly irrelevant to everything and was most likely product of Flux being bored, I don´t understand the argument that “this shouldn´t go to the front page“. What front page, there is only one page. If this was newspapers, (in a mythical world where Diablo had it´s own newspapers), and there were fifty pages, they, yes, this definatly shouldn´t go to the front page. But, here, on this site, there is only a single page for news, therefore, all news posts, great and small, relevant and completly irrelevant, go here.

    As there has been heaps of speculation over the last few days on forums, in news and in our chat room about Leah and what role she may end up playing (more of one as the recent week’s news suggests) it’s a good enough talking point.

    Not interested in her or how she fits then do yourself and the rest of us a favour and jog on.

  8. Since Diablo looks female, it’s no surprise that Leah is going to be the next Diablo. Ah well…..I hope I’m wrong. It’s disappointing to guess it correctly.
     

  9. I’m thinking that the meteor Is the black stone…could it be?

    • I thought the meteor was Tyrael falling from the heavens after being rejected by the angels for destroying the Worldstone and aiding humans frequently without permission.

      • That’s what I’ve always thought too. And man can’t tell which people are actually upset and which were just being sarcastic in here.

  10. She even old enough to be married ? Maybe it is just a mood ring. 🙂

  11. I own both Diablo II and III. As a result, I’m a HUGE (emphasis) fan of this game.
    But Azmodan being married to Leah…Hmmm…Sounds good to me!
    That is only on one condition: before Azmodan EVER (emphasis) has any kind of friend/relationship, he needs to realize all the evil he has ever created and atone for all of his sins. It is only when he is finished doing so can he offcially become “good” for Sanctuary. Afterwards, he needs to start building trust with the people there (AKA: demons being like-minded with humans: Leah IS (emphasis) a full human). Once he succeeds, Azmodan can then begin a friend/relationship (then build a life) with Leah.
    By then, she better love that demon with all she got!
    As for children (does not matter how many they can bring into the world), they have brought back the Nephalem race, a race which can defend Sanctuary, train other races, and defeat evil.
