question for you lore junkies.. I personally love the whole diablo lore and the story line, but there are two main questions I have that I cant seem to answer: 1) How did the wanderer/diablo and Marius get into the tomb where Baal was bound within Tal Rasha? In the game we have to go to all this trouble of finding making the horadric staff to gain entry into the chamber, and when we do use the staff it breaks a 'hole' in the wall which clearly wasnt there before. In the cinematic we have Marius and Diablo get to a "great room" where we see Diablo starting to really convert the wanderer into his (diablo's) true form, and then in the next flash, they are in the chamber where Baal has been bound. How? 2) How, after Diablo reunites with Baal, do they go and reunite with Mephisto? As far as I know the compelling orb is what keeps Mephisto locked in his lair, and its also what Mephisto used to corrupt the zakarum. We are told that only Khalims will can break the compelling orb and allow us entry into this area, and that that is the only way. Yet Diablo and Baal seem to easily waltz in there and meet up with their brother. Another question that relates to this is, if mephisto corrupted the compelling orb and subsequently all of the zakarum, then why didnt he just get them to destroy the compelling orb, thus releasing him? He obviously had the power to get them to slay and dismember Khalim, so shodulnt that have easily been within his grasp? As I said I love the story, but these things stick out like a sore thumb to me and I am hoping someone here can answer them for me :bigthumb: also: it is stated that we destroyed the soul stones of all three; is it implied that we destroy the soulstones of Diablo and Baal (because we dont in the game), and if that were possible then why didnt the Horadrim just do that in the first place? Thanks in advance!
