I know most of us are thoroughly enjoying Diablo3, but I
know some are wondering about the next expansion already and who
is going to to be the bosses for it. There have been
hints in Diablo 3 about this and here are some
There is a strong connection between 3 potential bosses
and they are:
Adria the Witch!
Diablo's baby mama! Couldn't be a more obvious baddie
as an option for the next expansion, she used her
daughters body as a 'host' to hold all 7 evils
within which in short pretty much killed her and
unleashed hell upon the high heavens... need I say
Malthael - The angel of wisdom, shortly after the worldstone was destroyed (by
Tyreal) he left the
angiris council going presumably mad and is
wondering all pandemonium searching for the truths
of life and death and could easily return to exact
revenge upon Tyreal for the world stones
Imperius - A very
upset angel, He most certainly
still holds a grudge towards the naphalem hero and
Tyreal for their sacrilege of the high heavens or so he
sees it. He even threatens you with death and tried to
kill Tyreal and the way the battle with Diablo went I
doubt Imperius is very happy with the mess heaven was
In my opinion, all of these honestly sound
good to me to be boss contenders for the next Diablo
3 Expansion.There most likely are already hints
for the expansion(s) in the game. According to that
leaked product slate, they had envisioned 2 as far
back as early 2010. In September 2011, it was listed as
part of their
'core pipeline' and would be out within 2-3 years.
WARNING: Possible SPOILER
There has to be more for the black soulstone. Why
point out specifically that the thing can be used to
store demons and angels, if it never gets used for
such? (And of course, it, somehow, just falls from
Heaven instead of being smashed, leaving perhaps the
biggest open plotline)
Another interesting thing is that they retconned the
Warrior/Dark Wanderer, into being King Leoric's son,
adding a Star Wars-esque family/bloodline based story.
(Diablo's first host was Albrecht, youngest? son of
Leoric, then Aidan, elder son, then Leah, granddaughter)
Seemingly there must be more to that as well.
Tell me, why did the Horadrim
have to kill Zoltun Kulle?
He delved into powers not meant
for men, trying to fashion an artifact
that could fill his empty heart with the
souls of angels and demons. The Horadrim
had no choice but to slay him. The
order... never recovered.
The Black Soulstone was created
to be an improvement over the original
three. They were crafted to contain
single demons, but Kulle intended his to
hold many. But the Black Soulstone
is flawed and cannot contain that many
demons for long. We must capture Azmodan
within it and shatter it... lest all
these Evils be reborn.

What became of Malthael?
Long ago, when Inarius and his

Sanctuary, Malthael became consumed with
discovering its whereabouts.
As the archangel of Wisdom, he was
tortured by his inability to recover the

I have a gift for you, Lyndon.
Is that so?
It is gold. We will go to

your debts, and your brother will be
You are much too kind.
We have journeyed together a long
way. I am happy to aid you.
No. I have learned something much
more troubling. Judging by the borders,
this is indeed a page from the tomes,
but it does not contain prophecies.
It seems to be a set of instructions for
the creation of magical weapons. But
that is not the strangest part.
I have seen the rune here before, on the
bracers of Tyrael's armor.
Tyrael, examine this page. Tell
me what you see.
These are plans for angelic
weapons that will fit human hands. Where
did you find this?
Kormac: This is a page torn from the sacred
tomes of my blessed order. The Light
only knows what the others contain.
I see. It implies that my
brethren seek to destroy this world and
that your order was created to stop
Is it true?
It was once. Not anymore.
There is no darkness in you,
Kormac. I cannot say the same for your
order. What will you do?
There is much difference between
what I want and what I must do.
Together, you and I will finish our work
here. I owe you that.
But I tell you this: my faith is
stronger than this betrayal. When we are
done, I will return home and plunge my
spear into the ground before the Vault
of the Order.
I will meet their champions until they
answer for their sins and their lies. I
will have justice.
Covetous Shen and the evil jewel
Why do you search for this jewel
Because... it has killed
thousands, and because I am the only one
who can hold it without harm.
Because you are a god?
No. Because it has already taken
everything from me that matters. But
enough of that! I have gone too long
without spiced beef and spicier wine!
I wish to learn more about this
jewel and the spirit trapped within.
Oh, all you wish to hear is my
most guarded secret. Well, certainly. If
you cannot be trusted, then the world is
in trouble, I think.
The jewel contains a... powerful
creature named Dirgest. He was trapped
within it for terrible crimes against
The spirits have never heard this
name. That is a strange thing. They know
The spirits of those who know him
are trapped with him in the stone.
Now a flaw has developed in the jewel.
Through it, Dirgest can consume the
holder's life. I intend to seal his
prison, trapping him in it forever.
Let me tell you what I think.
After Azmodan is dead, you come with me,
and we'll go on a grand adventure! Just
you and Shen. The wind at our backs, and
the road stretching out before us.
It is not an unpleasant thought.
At any rate. When you defeat
Diablo, don't laze about. We have other
lands to explore, you and I. Dirgest's
jewel is still out there somewhere.
Prophecy of the End of Days, I don't have the Book of
Cain, but it's supposed to be about the 'ultimate
invasion' of Sanctuary by the Burning Hells...
And, at the End of Days, Wisdom shall be lost
as Justice falls upon the world of men.
Valor shall turn to Wrath -
and all Hope will be swallowed by Despair.
Death, at last, shall spread its wings over all -
as fate lies shattered forever.
All the lines seem to reference one of the Angiris
Council members and their Aspects, except 'Death,' and
some seem to have occurred in the game.
What if it isn't that straight-forward?
Tyrael, the mortal. and thus able to be 'lost', takes up
the Aspect of Wisdom, "Since Justice has been met this
day, I will now stand as Wisdom"
Meaning no Justice, which could 'fall upon the world of
men' meaning the Nephalem have to assume the role of
Justice in the future.
Valor turns to Wrath - Another open plot line, Azmodan's
Sin embodiment lieutenants. We only killed 2, Lust and
Gluttony. In the coincidentally named Wrath animation,
Diablo says to Imperius "Your rage makes you powerful.
Yet you hide it from your brethren. Perhaps you fear
them seeing you for what you truly are."
Death - Notice in Tyrael's convo about Malthael, he
mentions Malthael was 'forever seeking answers about
life and death' and they specifically used 'spread its
wings,' and everything else seems to refer to
At the end of Wrath, it is said: "Angels. Demons. I fear
their conflict will soon engulf the world of men, and
when it does, what hope will there be when even the
wrath of angels cannot be quenched?"
Certainly sounds like there should be an angel/demon war
on Sanctuary, quite possibly what the End of Days
prophecy actually foretold.
The Prophecy of the End Days is contained
within the e Horadric tomes I inherited from
my ancestor Jered Cain.
It is a warning to those who could interpret
it regarding Hell's ultimate invasion of our
world, written by many different people
throughout history in many different lands.
He's convinced that the forces of Hell will
invade our world and bring about the end
times. All these years, he's still searching
for a way to stop this... apocalypse.
Blizzard will not release any big titles on top of each
other, they will have a gap between. So my guess is late
fall we will get WoW: MoP. Closer to Christmas times I
believe we will see more of the new expansion to
Starcraft 2. So a year to a year and a half from now,
could very well be the time for the new Diablo
expansion. Would be awesome!
We know an expansion is coming, so they have SOME sort
of plot to go along. It should be good. I'm more
interested in what they will be adding to the game as
playable classes and other goodies. I'd love to see a
humanized angel, or fallen angel of sorts to be
playable. Would be nice to have a second character that
can use strength as a main stat. that would give 3 melee
and 3 ranged, with 2 classes each using one of the main
stats. If they follow LoD's model and add up to 7
classes, I would suggest a hybrid melee/caster along the
lines of the druid.
