What will happen to the D2 heroes in D3? Canonically, the Warrior "won" Diablo. In D2, he's the Dark Wanderer/Diablo, the Rogue is Blood Raven, and the Sorcerer is the Summoner (well, the fake one). Given that all the D1 heroes (well, excluding Hellfire, which is non-canon anyway) have been driven to madness and eventual death by D2, what is going to happen to the D2 heroes in D3? The Barbarian is already confirmed to have "won" D2, having defeated Baal. Given an expansion bringing back 2-3 of the D2 heroes, that leaves 3-4 D2 heroes that are going to become NPCs/monsters. Which heroes do you think will get the shaft? I think the Paladin, the Assassin, and the Sorceress will become monsters. The Paladin turning evil is classic Diablo "good-guy-turns-evil" (Leoric, Warrior, Izual, etc). The Assassin is too dull to be brought back as a hero, so might as well turn her evil. The Sorceress will come back to D3 as a playable hero, realize that Teleport now has a 9-second-cooldown period, go insane, and become a SuperUnique.. that still tries to teleport down to Baal.
