Diablo® III

What if the fallen star...

Is really the black soulstone, which falls down from heaven at the end of Act IV?

Also, here's a fraction of the prophecy as told by Brother Malachi in act 1, when you're on the quest to retrieve the sword pieces:

"What was once one shall become four. Though the three shall become one, never again will the four be whole."

At first glance, this appears to be referring to Tyrael and the three sword pieces, but that wouldn't make sense because Tyrael and the sword DO become whole. In light of that, maybe it's referring to something else that will be revealed in the expansion?

Maybe the angels? Justice, hope, fate and valor they are 4 "three shall become one, never again will the four be whole" either something will happen to Imperius or Tyrael will die which will leave only 3 of them.

I'm a little confused.. are you implying that the Black Soulstone went backwards in time?

No, what I think he's saying is this: the fallen star was prophesied. However, Tyreal wasn't the fallen star. Instead, The black soulstone which we see falling from the heavens at the end of the game (final cinematic) may be the fallen star in the prophecy; in which case, it did not go backwards in time, we have yet to see it.

@ OP I have wondered that from the beginning.

Which is an interesting theory. If this is the case all parts of the prophecy that take place after the fallen star never really happened yet. The prophecy never started. Every similarity is merely a coincidence.

Reslin I think we changed the prophecy. Our hero can change the fate of those around him/her and Itherael can't see the hero fate it's unwritten in his scroll.

No, the four are the 3 sword pieces + a confused Tyrael. Then the 3 shall become one (the sword), but the 4 shall never be whole because Tyrael will no longer be an angel. Only the 3 (the sword) is still angelic of nature, but himself is not.

So uh.. how's this not been thought of?

Council = 1. Individual angels on the council = 4.

Council is shattered.

Three shall become one. Diablo Mephisto Baal. Merged in the black soulstone to become the Prime Evil, expressed as Diablo Prime.

Four shall never be whole.. council will never be all 4 of them again. Basically another buildup for Imperius to be a loot pinata.

Yes I agree but remember there's two expansions. Our character may not have yet changed fate.

This is simple if you really dissect it.

What was one, shall become four. - Tyreal and El'druin are one. ArchAngel and Sword.
though the three shall become one - Though El'druin will be reforged
never again will the four be whole. - Tyreal WILL wield El'druin again, but he will never be ArchAngel

. . . 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.

This is the prophecy regarding the Arch Angels.

The prophecy is about Tyreal and his sword. Tyreal loses his memory when the sword shatters because it is part of him. Even though the sword is reassembled, he never becomes the Aspect of Justice again.
