yooooooo I might be in the minority but I really wish they never did this to Tyrael's character in Diablo 3.

In Diablo 2 Tyrael was pretty much the most badass angel I've ever seen in any form of media - courageous, mysterious, powerful, and humble.

Diablo 3 somehow managed to strip away almost all of his amazing qualities, and left us with this over-narrative annoyance. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd say "you talk too much" at Tyrael.

I'm hoping in D4, maybe early on, we rescue or encounter some lore character, and they advise us as rarely as Tyrael did in Diablo 2.

I know what you mean. I kind of feel the same, yet I didn't really mind. We rarely see an awesome superhuman character turn himself into a simple human. I had no problem with that and thought this was really cool.

But this certainly left a gap which you mentioned. The other Archangels didn't really interact much with the player.

Wow I hadn't watched this in a while. It's even dumber than I remember (not the cinematic itself, that part is awesome, but the story). I mean did the D3 writers (aka 4 chimps with 3 typewriters) just forget wtf world they were setting their idiotic story in? Angels existed before Sanctuary and have nothing to do with it in their creation etc, it's just a "side-world" created by an angel and a demon. So how in the hell can tyrael "fall" to Sanctuary when he strips his wings, let alone become human aka nephalem?! It's so stupid, has nothing to do with the lore of the series and is just baffling to behold - I mean seriously who the hell wrote this game?! If they're anywhere near D4 that story is doomed as well.

Tyrael doesn't become a simple mortal,he is still an angel,albeit one who now has mortality on his back (a mortal angel).Over the course of the centuries,after Hell and Heaven found out about Sanctuary,it was easier for both demons and angels to meddle in mortal afairs,even get to Sanctuary(even if it is considered basicly a pocket world separate from Hell and Heaven),it can stand to reason that Tyrael "chose" to "fall" there.

Leaving these aside,the story itself was not so pleasing to be honest. We as the mighty nephalem,discover our latent powers,stop the rushed invasion of Belial and Azmodan then find out Diablo is "scheming" behind our back (I mean let's get real,Adria basicly screamed traitorous *filtered* with traitor filling from the start of her journals,yet we didn't to a damned thing about it).Leah who had potential to be developed as a new generation horadrim (still hoping somehow Metzen didn't dupe us and she comes back somehow,he hinted her spirit is "floating around somewhere") was quickly disposed of. But in my humble opinion it did feel a tad mingled up somehow,rushed,the lore of Diablo is just massive,they have the tools necessary and I do hope D4 is going to "wall" us with an "explosive" narration 😂

The D3 story had some issues. But I dont think this was one. What would Tyrael become if he left the Angels? Is there any transformation rule or did he decide it for himself? I think he purposely transformed himself into a human with his angelic power because he said he wanted to warn the humans and side with them.

The problem I had with the D3 story is the soulstones. Suddenly Adria says that she captured the souls in the black soulstone. That makes the other soulstones and their destruction pointless. We dont even clearly know if Baal and Mephisto have been instantly popped into the black soulstone or were first captured in their own ones until the player destroyed them.

I completely agree with you. Diablo III pretty much ruined all the old characters. Killing Deckard. Turning Tyrael into a boring character. Making Adria the behind-the-curtain villain all along. Terrible writing.

      We finally have some more specific news on the Season 21 PTR delay and it seems that we'll be seeing it live tomorrow in the Pacific afternoon aka around midnight CET! The PTR brings with it a new seasonal power, 2 new sets, a whole lot of new legendary powers and more.

      Hi everyone
      Back with that update I promised. It’s a good one!
      We are aiming to have PTR up tomorrow afternoon (Pacific Time). We will update the blog posts and have threads up when things go live tomorrow.
      Thanks for all your patience on this. We are looking forward to the feedback!

      After the cinematic trailer/teaser, we now have the actual introduction to the game get the AI upscaling treatment, all the way to 8K with an added 60 FPS upgrade to boot! You can also see the direct comparison to the original version at the half-way mark, with the new version being significantly more... golden.

      The Diablo team is back from the prolonged weekend, with Memorial Day behind us, but they have some more bad news for the PTR, as not enough progress has been made on the issues and we still don't have any specific date for the launch. New community manager PezRadar clarified it's still aimed for this week, but they don't want to specific any date (but I'd say it's definitely looking to be Thursday or Friday if they don't postpone even more).

      No updates today unfortunately. Still hammering on the build here on our end. Still tracking for this week, but I don’t have any additional timeline updates. I would propose a date, but then I would feel awfully terrible if things didn’t hit that date!
      Will be back tomorrow if I have any new news. Thanks for all your patience everyone. I want to try the new sets and provide feedback on them just as much as you all!

      We have an update after the previously announced delay - it seems we won't be seeing the Season 21 PTR until sometime next week, after Monday as well since it's a federal holiday in the US.
      Delay (source)
      Unfortunately, with the testing needed, we can’t give an exact date but as soon as I have one, I will come in here and update.
      I can safely say that I would not expect it on Monday as that is a federal holiday here in the US. Once I hear more, I will update the group. Apologies again about the delay.
      ....
      Just a quick update on PTR, we discovered some issues that came up and are needing some additional QA time with the build as we want to make sure we get something out that is thoroughly vetted on our end. PTR will not be going live today due to these additional tests needed.
      We will keep you all informed on updates regarding PTR, but it is looking like it will now land sometime next week as we get this ready. Sorry for the confusion on delay on this one. We appreciate all the help and feedback we get during these PTR opportunities.

      It seems we won't be getting the PTR, DH and Necro sets, Seasonal buff etc today, as Blizzard have encountered some issues. As you want, you can check the the patch notes and Deadset's thoughts on the new changes.
