Diablo III: 16 Things That Won’t Happen in Diablo

A friend who I follow on Twitter mentioned the Portent’s Content Idea Generator. I’d never heard of it before, so I decided to give it a try. This blog is the result of the title it generated for me.

It was totally random that I ended up with a title with the number 16 in it. That works nicely with my Day 16 post for #Blaugust. Those of you who are also working your way through #Blaugust might want to give the generator a try. It’s better than being stuck for ideas.

Diablo III: Lucky the Monk

On May 15, 2013, the hosts of the Shattered Soulstone podcast got together with some listeners on Mumble for a special event. We decided that on the first “birthday” of Diablo III everyone would get online and play Diablo III together.

Special rules were created for this game. In honor of Diablo III’s first birthday, everyone’s character would play the game in their “birthday suits”. In other words, players could equip whatever weapon they could find – but were not allowed to equip any kind of armor at all. Back then, every character started out in what looked a lot like underwear.

There were more rules...

Diablo III: Cozy Bookstore

There are many small, random, quests that a player can find in Act V of Diablo III. Look for a brightly lit doorway, and go inside. Some kind of event will start.

Behind one of those brightly lit doorways is an event called “Cozy Bookstore”. It caught my attention because I love to read, have a tendency to buy more books that I can reasonably consume, and used to work in a big chain bookstore.

I love the ...

Diablo III: Z is for Zayl

This blog is part of an “A to Z” challenge that I started over a year ago… and am finishing now. It’s also my Day 13 post for #Blaugust. Why not kill two blogs with one stone?

Z is for Zayl. He is a beloved character in the Diablo III universe, along with his friend Humbardt.

Zayl is a necromancer...

Diablo III: Y is for Yellow Loot

This blog is part of a series I began about a year ago. I was involved in an “A to Z” challenge. People who participated were supposed to write one blog for each letter of the alphabet and post the blog on a specific day. I choose to write about stuff related to the “Diablo universe”. I failed to finish the challenge.

I’ve decided to finish up the last couple of “A to Z” blogs as part of my participation in #Blaugust. The topics were already planned out, and in my head, so now is a good time to actually sit down and write them.

Y is for Yellow loot. It’s not the worst kind of loot a player can pick up, but its far from the best.

When I think back to when I first started playi...

Diablo III: X is for Xazax

A while ago, I participated in an “A to Z” blog challenge. Write one thing for each letter and post it on the correct day. That challenge was my first attempt to write a lot of blogs about the “Diablo universe”. I failed to finish the challenge. I’ve decided that #Blaugust is my second chance to write the leftover “A to Z” blogs that I never got around to completing.

X is for Xazax. He is an obscure character in the “Diablo universe”, so you may not have heard about him. This character doesn’t appear in any of the Diablo video games.

The simplest way to describe Xazax is to say that he is a d...

Diablo III: Morgan’s Journals

There are two main ways in which to play Diablo III. You can do Adventure Mode, and spend your time completing bounties and running through Rifts. Or, you can do Story Mode, go through the game Act by Act, and experience the story chronologically.

I suspect that Adventure Mode is the more popular of the two options. It’s faster. It gives players a more efficient way to level a character. It could very well be the best way to find the “loot” you have been seeking.

Story Mode gives the player the overall story that involves the main characters, as well as some history. In addition, there’s a bunch of smaller stories in it just waiting to be found. One of those stories is about an NPC (non player character) named Morgan that the player never actually gets to meet. All we have to go on are some pages from his journal.

Who is Morgan?  He is a...

Diablo III: W is for Wives in Sanctuary

About a year ago, I attempted to participate in a blogging challenge called “A to Z”.  The rules were simple.  Write one blog for each letter of the alphabet.  Post that blog on a specific day.  You could write about whatever you wanted to, so long as it fit the letter of the day.

I thought it would be fun to write my “A to Z” blogs about Diablo III related stuff.  I quickly learned that I had a lot more to say than I anticipated, and found the blogging challenge to be overwhelming.  I failed to finish it.  So, why not incorporate the untouched, but planned out, topics into #Blaugust?

W is for Wives in Sanctuary.  I noticed that NPCs (non-player characters) who are wives are just as strong and vital as their husbands – until death.  For some reason, wives who have become ghosts need the player to help them.  Husbands who have died, on the other hand, are strong and attack the player.

Pick a character class in Dia...

Diablo III: I’m Not Done With Season 3

Season 3 in Diablo III is coming to an end in just a few weeks.  Players always get at least a little warning before a Season ends, and this time is no different.  Nevalistis posted a blog in the Diablo III section of Battle.net yesterday that states Season 3 will end on August 23, 2015.

I’m not quite done with Season 3 yet. At the same time, it feels like this Season has gone on long enough and is at a good place for it to end. There’s still some things I’m working on.

When Season 1 end...

Diablo III: Leah’s Family Tree

Last year, in April, I participated in an “A to Z” 30 day blogging challenge. One of the posts I wrote while working on that challenge was titled Diablo III: L is for Leah. In it, I briefly went over some Leah’s backstory. I left a lot out in order to avoid massive “spoilers”.

Today, I decided to go ahead and put together Leah’s family tree. It’s something that’s been in my head for a while. It turned out that her family tree includes characters that one might not expect.

To be honest, Leah is among my favorite Diablo ...
