Diablo® III

How did Cain survive the fall?

Everytime I watch this amazingly beautiful cinematic, I'm like: "How did he survive that fall?"

He doesn't have powers. And the fall was long, in a hellfire pit from the impact of an archangel falling from the sky.

I mean, c'mon. All those people working at Blizzard and no one to say: "Hey... that doesn't make any sense at all. We should write it differently."

Or maybe someone can explain it to me?

The real Cain is out there somewhere. That was one of belial's elite lieutenants.

Because tyrael's Life energies resurrected those unjustly slain. Obviously this included Cain, who was just innocently studying like he does when a great bloody space person falls on him. Unlike the zombies, he wasn't decayed at all because he was only dead for a couple seconds.

Ah... I guess... that makes sense. Then, he died twice.

well, I was mostly joking, theres no information to actually support that. Theres nothing that directly contradicts it either, but no support.

There are any number of reasons why that fall didn't kill Deckard. Perhaps he only fell one level down? Perhaps he landed on a pile of mushy dead bodies? :P

Yeah. I know he was joking, but that makes more sense than surviving this fall.

I don't know why people are asking why he survived the fall.

I'm asking, "How did he survive the IMPACT?" SERIOUSLY! I ask Leah if she's the one that survived the fallen star, and she tells me, "I did, but it blasted my uncle Deckard Cain into the depths of the cathedral." My first response would be "I'm sorry for your loss," not "Don't worry, I'll get him back for you."

Magic items are pretty common in Sanctuary, maybe his outfit had some defensive stats. Or maybe he knew a protective spell like Mana Shield.
