Diablo® III

What are Tyrael's best feats in the lore?

Posts: 55
Just reading up on Tyrael on the net and came across this post in another forum about Tyrael and his feats in the books:

1. Is faster than the eye can see.

2. Can destroy Sanctuary a thousand times with just a portion of his powers.

3. The demons are soo insignificant to him that an entire armada or realm of demons attacking him would be the same as maggots running from a Flood.

4. His sword can destroy and cut any material or anything in existence.

5. Can create entire realms of existence. But he's prohibited by the law.

Can anyone reference where these statements came from? Number 4 is from the Book of Cain, how about the rest?

Number 3 is quite interesting but not sure if that's derived from novels, comics etc. Number 5 also seems quite powerful but was that with the power of the Worldstone or can he just do that with his normal Archangel powers?

the video "Wrath" shows he's quite fast, but not exzatly "faster than the eye"

number 2 is very unlikely, the Nephalem are said to be potentially more powerful than angels and demons, and no human has ever showed this much power. I might be wrong though, might be some of those powers that often appear in mithology that can only be used once and only in very specific and cosmic conditions. or might be poetic exageration from the source that states he can.

I'll assume number 3 refers to ordinary demons. then yes, they are insignificant to Tyrael... just as they are insignificant to the other archangels, prime evils, lesser evils, and our characters.

4 is probably true, it destroyed the worldstone, the demon gate in act 3, and opened a door in heaven in act 4.

number 5 must be only with the power of the worldstone, or why else would that stone be so important? I mean, if archangels in general, or even just he, could create worlds out of nothing what would be the point of the stone? also doesn't make much sense the aspect of justice be able to do that.

Hmm, okay.

1st one could be perhaps the way Angels can turn into light and than travel that way to another location similar to Imperius in his fight against Diablo Prime.

Or Itherael in the Wrath video where he would disappear and reappear in a different location. If that is some teleporting ability or just high speed movement perhaps Tyrael could replicate such a feat if he wanted to...?

Also came across the statement apparently from the Sin War books:

6 . However his brother in the same book who is said to be on a lower power level than Tyrael could destroy the world 1000 times over (statement not an actual feat unlike those following), create a storm of ice and snow where there was hail chunks so large they could cause enormous craters in the Earth and he can make mountains out of the ground with gestures.

I suppose they are talking about Inarius as the brother of Tyrael and if he could alter the landscape to such an extent, it would be possible for Tyrael to do the same.

Can anyone who has read the Sin War books verify? If so, which book of the trilogy would it be?

the Sin War books are sadly not "true" to the Lore as Metzen said in an interview, it had too many holes and couldnt be followed as a good lore for the games.

1. Is faster than the eye can see.
2. Can destroy Sanctuary a thousand times with just a portion of his powers.
3. The demons are soo insignificant to him that an entire armada or realm of demons attacking him would be the same as maggots running from a Flood.
4. His sword can destroy and cut any material or anything in existence.
5. Can create entire realms of existence. But he's prohibited by the law.

1. - Tyreal is fast yes, but, Ithereal is faster than the eye, he can literally go as fast as light.
2. - Tyreal has the power to perhaps destroy Sanctuary itself yes, though, destroying a planet might not be of any use if the living things on it could destroy him. (Nephalem)
3. - They are insignificant to him, he wields El'druin.
4. - My favorite part.

"El'druin is,by all accounts, a unique weapon that can cut through any substance or foe in existance. There is, however, an exception : Some beleive that the blade's edge cannot pass through or harm any being of righteous intent." - Taken from Book of Cain, p.45

5. He cannot create realms on his own, the worldstone must be used to create them. Anyone could create realms with it.

Really? The Sin War and it's events are referenced in the Book of Cain though. The BoC is put together to set up the the Diabloverse just in time for Diablo 3, so things like Nephalem, Inarius, Lilith and Uldyssian should be canon as the D3's player characters (Nephalem aspects) comes from the ideas in the Sin War books right?

So there is still no real consistency for the lore... Bugger!
