    SPOILERS -- Act One Levels Sequenced

    Here's the full list of act one levels, that I've been trying to assemble in the proper order. You'll note that a lot less than half of them are seen in the beta.

    The working theory now, thanks to Grug for the idea, is that Act One as seen in the beta is VERY different than the final game form. It seems weird that the skeleton king is battled before you reach most of the levels about him, see the ghostly cinematic of his queen's death, etc. It's also weird that the cultists are only seen related to the templar, but not before or after. Seems like stuff is out of sequence there. And note how easily you get the 3 inventory items; not much story or ceremony attached to them. They seem ripped out of the full context/story.

    That's a subject for a larger analysis, though. For now, here are the full list of act one levels, from the game code. They're listed alphabetically there; I've rearranged them into roughly their order in the beta, with other stuff below the break. And some notes. Add comments or corrections as you know them and I'll rework the sequence.

    Levels as seen in the beta, in order: (Some levels are listed twice, if multiple events occur there, such as outside the tristram gates.)

    Interesting. Though it has been theorized on these boards earlier that significant things and areas might have been taken out of the beta due to spoilers.

    Sorry to just kind of dump this here, but I've got a ton of other stuff to work on. I'd like the known beta stuff to be a good walkthrough. with actions and subdungeons labeled and stuff, so anyone who can fill in details please do, and I'll update the first post with better info. And expand it with screenshots and stuff, when I have time. Make it a proper act walkthrough type thing.

    So the Siege Breaker actually isn't from Act 1? I guess it's too much for a starting act...

    And who is Queen Araneae?

    Check the wiki, I was working on it. :p

    Bridle=Tyrael, but who is withers?

    There appears to be a quest to re-assemble the blade of justice as well. There's three pieces to it.

    withers is a code name, and like most of the code names, it's pony-related. I'll give a hint, there's a unique item called:

    Wither's Cleaver

    which should give it away to anyone who remembers D1....

    Actually it's his carver, but close enough. Especially with what it looks like. o_O

    so we encounter the Wither
    An obese dude who likes his meat FRESH!
    after we encounter Leoric in D3?

    That doesn't sound right, killing the king prior to the 'cook'...

    Crypt of the Ancients doesn't jive at all with the lore. Wouldn't that be in the sacred burial place of Mount Arreat...which gets exploded? What would their crypt be doing way over near Tristram? Then again, everyone being related to everyone else doesn't jive either...

    Different kingdom different ancients. One can assume they mean the ancient kings. Not those from the barbarian tribes way up north.

    I'm sure there was a lot of ancients to a lot of people between the birth of the sanctuary and the nephalem and present time.

    I saw Queen Araneae's 3D model on Diablofans wiki. It looked ok but it was NOT THE MISTRESS OF PAIN. And it was not...impressive...enough to be the Act Boss. I think something is missing here. They wouldn't make a random spider queen whom we've never seen before an act boss.

    Re: SPOILERS -- Act One Levels Sequenced

    Well Act 1 was the only act boss we didn't know about. Now we know them all. Azmodan, Belial & Diablo been the other 3.

    Lore wise it had to be new, considering all the original lesser/greater evils are accounted for.

    But it's weird. She looked nothing like Mistress of Pain. Why would they have TWO spider queens? Too much Shelob infatuation?

    I buy your theory that there isn't any other known demon lorewise. I just hope (1) they set her up well and (2) she's huge.

    Shelob was one of the offspring of Ungoliath and no doubtb Ungoliath had thousands more...
    [/Middle Earth]

    This might also have the same answer as in my earlier post. Different kingdom, different kings/queens.
    Of all that is evil, it doesn't need to be only 1 person/demon.

    1) She will be set up perfectly diabolical.
    2) Ever met a small spider overlord/king/queen?

    I'm not saying it isnt possible story-wise! I'm saying its poor design to have 2 bosses as spider-demons when there are so many other possibilities and Bliizzard guys are so creative and iterate such a lot.

    I bet spiderqueen A will look totally different than spiderqueen B and each will have there own skills/buffs/weaknesses. Just like any other demonboss.

    there isn't actually a portrait of tyreal/bridle in the game files, does that mean we don't meet hit?
