Where is the vibrant and rich lore world you said you guys were gonna create, the whole d3 story is told by 3 followers, 2 merchants, leah, 3 angels and 3 demons..it feels not even half completed in fleshing out the world and the NPC, its just a rush to next zone.
In d2 you would get quest from different npc, they would tell you about their life, job, religion, their views on certain things and were memorable. what does diablo 3 have? a mayor who complains about a cart on the way, few soldiers lying on their backs, a man in the desert staring at a well and the only barbarian in the game who has 2 lines?
Sure people may remember coveteous shen, he made me giggle few times as well, but we remember him for one or two lines he says, its like a liking a advertisement for the product because its funny but only because it was funny, without holding any interest in the product your trying to sell.
ALL your Diablo novels are awesome! why cant the dialogues be like that and built depth in variety of characters, you guys dont even name 70% of your npcs, they are just mechant #4 or sad lady #18.
In the novels evils are menacing, love to hate if you will, like kerrigan and mengsk in star craft 2, in diablo 3 the villains are like some you would find in a scooby doo episode, whining and moaning like a kid, popping up everywhere. I thought you guys said you learnt your lesson in wrath of the lich king in how the lich king was portrayed.
am I alone here! (lol)
