    the general theme of diablo 3

    so what do you guys think the general theme of D3 is.

    D1 was a village decaying because of a demonic influence(Diablo)
    D2 was the prime evils

    I personally get the feeling D3 might be about the crumbling of sanctuary as a whole. it's slowly falling apart since the world stone was destroyed and the meteor in the the cinematic is a sign of this happening. so we have to deal with the forces causing this through out the game and maybe even battle angels for this purpose.

    Theme is the main idea or message.

    Maybe you mean plot which is about events.

    As for plot well yea apoc is probably right and it's about a battle with or against heaven and hell for possession of sanctuary - I expect.

    TBH the only prime evil that has been possible neutralized is Mephisto as he the only one that had his soulstone smashed. Diablo been killed twice so far but his soulstone still intact so he not dead (unless he undead in D2).

    Really Diablo is sanctuary is the realm caught in a battle between Heaven and Hell (Both have tryed or thought of trying destroying sanctuary at times, Heaven would of done so if not for Tyrael)

    Soulstones have no impact anymore. They only existed as a way to anchor their captive inside Santuary despite the Worldstone trying to keep them out.


    With no Worldstone, Angels and Demons are free to come and go with no need for an anchor.

    Re: the general theme of diablo 3

    There was a civil war during D2, and the Prime Evils just reversed the Exile. My money's on another civil war where Diablo & co win, having belial and Azmodan submit.

    It's at least how we can see him in A2 if Diablo either exiles him there, or uses him as a meat shield via cultists and such.

    Re: the general theme of diablo 3

    Didn't we decide in D2 that the Dark Exile was just a ruse with the end goal being corruption of the Worldstone? Izual suggested the Prime Evils masterminded the whole thing, and Cain comments as well that the forces of Hell (in response to Andariel in Act I) appear to be aligned with the Prime Evils.

    Only the Prime Evils knew it was a ruse.


    That Andariel was following Diablo would be suggesting Hell is now backing them, but the other two are unaccounted for. We do know that they lead Hell, but were constantly at each other's throats.

    Re: the general theme of diablo 3

    We have wiki pages for all of the cinematics and some of the gameplay movies. You can see all of them and many more in our you tube channel, and the cinematics (but not the game plays) are on the official site in the media section.

    Incidentally,we might see belial in Act 2, but that's not him in the Monk trailer.

    [BLUE="http://forums.battle.net/thread.html?topicId=19377975126&sid=3000"]
    The demonic enemy shown in the Monk trailer is a morlu caster, not Belial.[/BLUE]

    Re: the general theme of diablo 3

    I think the basic idea is that whatever happened in Diablo 2 (and 1 for that matter) has become a legend and most people do not actually believe it happened anymore. Deckard Cain and the like are curious as to why the forced of evil have not invaded Sanctuary, some argue that the forces of evil are just holding back to lure humankind into a false sense of security.

    Still, I am interested in in the role of Tyrael, not sure he will be switching sides but his own agenda has always been a bit of a mystery.

    All in all, the theme will be much darker than Diablo 2 (from what I can see) and be slightly apocalyptic
