    I don't see why people want Leah to have some sort of resolution. She was a pawn in Diablo's plan and although it's a striking plot hole that Tyrael wasn't aware of it (unless he's a secret baddie), it happened and she's dead. If they do any spirity nonsense or even worse resurrect her that's bullshit. Diablo never has been about happy endings, it's not Game of Thrones or anything, but it certainly is supposed to be a dark and unforgiving universe.

    I'm actually glad they didn't have future plans for bosses because it gives them a better opportunity to look at the mistakes made in vanilla and try to rectify them. Malthael seems to be the "bad guy with good intentions" that at least adds a little depth to the character. We'll see how they go about the story, which is honestly like 1% of the reason anyone plays a Diablo game... Hoping they get back to a game more similar in feels to D2X and then can work to actually improve upon that.

    Well, if we're going to break D3 down into a loot-whoring trope, then its a pretty shitty one. A pay-for-winning real money auction house, stripped down stat-choices, ect., sub-par crafting system. Sure, we can go that route.

    Some people look for more than gear-grinding when they play the franchise. Some people play the franchise for a combination of things. Story can certainly be one of those things.

    i'd guess 40-50 USD with a 80-100 CE. 20 or 30 bucks would be a surprise

    Did they say anything about a real PvP in game yet? Also hoping they up the player limit to 8-10, 4 is so shit. Oh and let me be able to zone to any act after beating the game and keep all of the bosses up.

    I'll buy the xpac regardless, but those are the things from D2 I'd really like to have...

    For the expansion?! No fucking way I would pay over $20. I honestly feel like the expansion should just be a patch they should give us. =)

    I think in the video Arx posted, they said as of now there are no plans for PVP in the expansion.

    And back to the story discussion. I care more about them fixing the core gameplay mechanics in the expansion than I care about the story. But the story is still important to me. To me, the story doesn't NEED to be about Leah, but when the lead writer says something along the lines of "when we found Malthiel" that tells me they never intended to have him be the main antagonist of the expansion, and never had an idea of the story whatsoever. That concerns me. Even if we forget about Leah, it seems pretty derp derp that Tyreal and Co would just let Adria run free after her betrayal and that she's more powerful than they originally imagined.

    well you're either hyperbolic about your jew-like tendencies or you're not going to be buying RoS -- at least not right at release. You can probably snipe it at ToysRus for $19.99 shortly after though. Maybe they'll staple a D3X license with another 1-year sub to WoW. (*'-');

    they totally pulled malthiel outta their ass, yeah. but maybe they're looking at 2-3 xpacks, now; i think they'll get back to Adria eventually, however cheesily they may write it up

    Still think Adria should just be left alone, nothing good comes out of that storyline. The problem is that Blizzard created an undefeatable hero and now they have to compensate for that silliness. Nothing Adria could do could make that happen...

    Malthael on the other hand gots options as the ex-leader of the Angiris council. He could go the obvious/boring route and start putting angels in the black soulstone then use it to become -the strongest thing ever- so we can beat it again and continue the cycle of always being the strongest thing ever. Or they could go a number of routes. I think they need to transition away from this NEPHALAMAMMAMA storyline and pull the heroes back to being something more mortal. Otherwise expect everything to get "stronger then it ever was" with shitty retcons and annoying plot holes.

    It's pretty obvious to me that Shen is Trag'Oul in disguise, that may be tied to the ending of D3:RoS or it might be saved for later. I think the gem he's searching for is a new worldstone and I think it's a possibility that Malthael found it. More reasons we'll see Trag'Oul is that the balance is out of whack and Malthael's goal of defeating the demons stands directly against the wishes of Trag'Oul (and remember the Angles have no clue Trag'Oul exists). To me this is an obvious ending for RoS because it leads directly to the necromancer (perhaps with a different name) being added in the next xpac, which is inevitable and something many people want.

    I think the story could get very cool, which is the one reason I hope they stay far away from Leah/Adria which would just be snooze-fests. Put that shit in a cinematic and have Adria's head on a stake and some memorial service for Leah and call it a day. People seem to forget that although the Diablo games were rather minimal on story, they created quite a bit of lore with the sin war trilogy books (some were good) and the book of cain (p.great). Not everything Metzen does is bad, but when it's bad - it's real bad.

    I can't wait for some legitimate randomization. I'm super excited about fighting completely new combinations of enemies. Bring on Oppressors, Demonic Tremors, Arachnids, and Savage Beasts.
