Hint in cutscenes (spoilers)

General Discussion
In the 15th anniversary video released yesterday, one of the first lines said:

"And at the end of days, justice shall fall upon the world of men"


I find it extremely unlikely that there is any other falling significant object in Diablo 3 other than the star, and as such I believe that the narrator is making reference to the star. This can also be seen when during the opening cinematic revealed at the VGAs when Deckard Cain, seeing the effect the meteor was having upon entering Sanctuary said:

"And at the end of days, the first sign shall appear in the heavens. Justice shall fall upon the world of men."


Later in that same video, he says:

"It has begun"


This suggests that Tyrael, the Archangel of Justice, is the star that is seen.

The retrospective helps support the case that Tyrael is the star, thats all I was trying to say. I was well aware that this is old news but that scene was emphasized by blizzard and so I thought that I would make a post discussing it.
Why would him go to Sanctuary in a meteor? And why would him raise the dead and Leoric? I think these words are about the ultimate battle between demons and angels retracted in the intro cinematic. It will take place on Sanctuary, the world of men. Justice refers to a event from the past, something new to us, perhaps.

Maybe that is how angels enter Sancutary. After all, falling from the heavens seems rather appropriate for an angelic figure.
Oh, another conspiracy.

That has been done before.

A couple times.

I was well aware that this is old news

So why make another thread about it? It's been emphasized enough, and more speculation doesn't exactly help an impatient community. Rather, it leads to assumptions and red herrings.

As for the Undead, where ANYWHERE does it say the meteor raised the dead?

Before meteor, quiet Tristram.
After meteor, undead creatures awaken and terrorize surrounding areas.

Also, it is mentioned by Deckard Cain in the Beta that the fallen meteor has stirred the dead.
Hum...
If I say A and you conclude B and 5 weeks later I say C, which also leads to B then you can say you have more evidence.

If 5 weeks later I just say A again there is nothing new.

No lol your wrong, He is referring to Tyrael.

You learn this in BoC, the reason (IMO) why tyrael came as a meteor is because he was shunned fromt he high heavens. Most likely forced by Imperius, I mean that Tyrael destroyed the one thing Imperius longed for ever since he was created. That would piss someone off a lot.

As for the Undead, where ANYWHERE does it say the meteor raised the dead? Demon or Angel or NEPHALEM can raise the dead. If the Undead was already there prior to the meteor, then that is probably where Tyrael is going to go. Especially since Cain was there, the 1 person who knows Tyrael best.

If I throw you inside a lake you will stir the fish, even if you didn't care for it or even didn't want it.

Okay, I chose a poor choice of words. Deckard Cain says that it reanimates the dead.

So, I throw you in a lake with dead fish. They start biting you, even if you didn't care for it or didn't want it.

I meant that some of the scenes I used to make my conclusions were old. Not all of it was old. Sorry about the confusion.
