Could Covetus Shen possibly be Inarius "in a form more closely resembling our own." ?
You know that makes a lot of cense. In his lore it states.
"he is searching for a particularly rare gem, one he suspects you may have an eventual hand in finding."
Could he possibly be looking for some kind of soulstone/gem that he desperately wants to slam into his forehead?
P.S. Vae if your still following this thread I am still very curious if you could touch on how the Bonus vs humans/nephalem/elites/talking meatsacks that got linked in the OP will be iterated in the upcoming item changes.
At the present time, we don’t have any details on how/if the bonus to humans may be iterated upon in the upcoming itemization changes.
Lorewise, if something is a clear mystery up until this point, I’m not really at the liberty to divulge any juicy answers, but I’m happy to now and then offer clarification on existing lore if I’m able to. We realize that not everyone cares about game lore, and that’s totally fine. I personally dig Diablo lore, so I am keen to jump in now and then on these types of threads. :) The reality is: posting in a thread like this also in no way slows development on the gameplay aspects of Diablo III we’re currently working on
As a point of clarification that I feel needs to be said: I’m not a developer, I’m a Community Manager just like it says on the left-hand side there. While the vast, and I mean vast
majority of the threads I post in pertain to gameplay in one manner or another, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t loads of other topics being eagerly discussed by players (such as lore), and it certainly doesn’t mean that I’ll be dissuaded by posting in them as well. There’s a lot that goes into Diablo, including everything from gameplay, through to art, lore, sound, cinematics, and more, and they all come together as a whole to create the Diablo series. I simply tend to post in gameplay threads more often because those are commonly the most prevalent discussions taking place here on the forums. But they’re not the only
As a note that some of your lore aficionados might enjoy: I happen to know that many of your lore-filled discussions are indeed watched by … interested parties … on this end as well. >;)
