Please, don't judge this before you read it through and think about it! I finally, after several months of extensive research have found the true secret that Diablo carries. Please bare with me.

Believe it or not but the secret of diablo 3 is within the Dol rune.


By now, you are all probably thinking wtf this guy is trolling. But before you discredit me let me show to you this jaw-dropping truth.

The stats of a Dol rune:
Weapons: Hit causes monster to flee 25%
Armor: Replenish Life +7
Helms: Replenish Life +7
Shield: Replenish Life +7

Some simple mathematics:

25x7x7x7 = 8575

Why Is this important you ask?

Well. In diablo 1, the lord of terror had PRECISLY 8,575 hit points. Are you getting scared? There's more

Note the stat on the dol rune that stands out the most,
"Hit causes monster to flee 25%"

Now, naturally this ONLY works on regular monsters but not bosses ... right?

That's were you are wrong. In diablo II "normal" difficulty has PRECISLY 34300 Hit points ( 8575 being exactly 25% of his health!)
What does this mean to us? Well, because of some glitch in the hardcoding of d2:lod this fact somehow allows you to surpasse the boundary of "hit causes monster to flee" not affecting bosses. In otherwords, because of this fault on behalf of the blizzard programmers aslong as you have a dol socketed into a weapon you can make diablo run away from you with each successfull hit. Ironic isn't it? The lord of terror, in TERROR. ( Some argue this was initially an intentional "easter-egg" the programmers added for a twist)

Okay... okay. After making you read all of this I won't disappoint you. There is indeed an even greater scandal revolving around the dol rune. One that will literally make you $!@% bricks after reading this. Let's move on!

Anagrams. Guess what? An anagram of "Dol" is Lod. Coincidence? Lod stands for Lord Of Destruction which is an expansion for diablo.
An anagram of Lord Of Destruction is: consider fold trout.

Consider fold trout ...

For months these words echoed in my head and it wasn't untill tonight I realised what impact these words bare and I felt compelled to type out this thread and share it with you all.

I quote Merriam websters:

Quote

TROUT
Middle English, from Old English trūht, from Late Latin trocta, tructa, a fish with sharp teeth, from Greek trōktēs, literally, gnawer, from trōgein to gnaw


Please notice the word gnaw. I knew I had seen this very word somewhere in the game before, but where?

Gnaw Fold. It was a rare ring I had left in my stash since 1.07. According to recent databases, the prefix Gnaw and the suffix Fold no longer exist, however they did in 1.07. I was one of the lucky few to recieve this ring randomly from as far as my memory serves me, from the gidbin quest.

Enough about the ring, let me explain to you all how this fits together... PERFECTLY.

Gnaw Fold - Unique ring
stats:
Attack rating +25
Vitality +7
Life +7
Energy +7
Mana +7

Do you see the similarities yet? Well, if you don't than look back at are old friend the dol rune.

Admit it, you are scared? This is where this little discovery takes a VERY, VERY awkward and interesting turn.

They're three difficulties on d2 'Normal', 'Nightmare' and 'Hell'
In the "Hell" mode of diablo lod, diablo has a 0.05575% chance of dropping a Dol rune. Why Is this important? Apart from the scary number-patterns this tells us that JUST as with the dol rune glitch that allowed you to make diablo flee from you, here a very simliar glitch occurs. Once again, because of the "Sloppy Hardcoding" of D2 LOD (Mind, it was a rush job after the sky-rocketing sales of classic) whenever you kill diablo in hell with this ring in your ring slot the game crashes. I bet you all are thinking now, WOW what a waste of time! He made us read ALL of this to tell us that because of the incompetence of blizzard employee's the game crashes if you wear some really rare ring and just HAPPEN to get a dol rune drop for you. This is wrong. As you will find out in just a sec there is something special about this error message. It returns the following value to your screen: 64 69 61 62 6c 6f 20 33 20 20 30 39 2f 30 39 2f 30 39.

At first glace 64 69 61 62 6c 6f 20 33 20 20 30 39 2f 30 39 2f 30 39 seems completly random, just some error code right? This is where you are wrong, deeply wrong.

64 69 61 62 6c 6f 20 33 20 20 30 39 2f 30 39 2f 30 39 is hex for : Diablo 3 09/09/09. Don't believe me? Google ANY Hex translator and try it yourself.

From this ASTONISHING information I would like to conclude that based on my findings I believe (and believe all you others should acknowledge aswell) that diablo 3's official release date is 09/09/09.

it would be an awesome game if it was created with a darker element. The game is too bright and happy in my opinion.

No duh, it's not being made by Blizzard North. It's being made by what amounts to a bunch of fucking noobs and WoWites.

That said I'll play it anyways. Why? Because it's the closest I'm ever going to get to a true sequel to Diablo 2. Which pisses me off enormously...

Yeah, whenever I think about this kind of thing I get nostalgic. Those were great people, and great designers. I loved almost everything those guys did.

As for WC4? Much like D3 even if made it won't be a true WC4. The original WC was made mostly by one man, Bill Roper and Bill no longer works for Blizzard. Same problem with SC (Do you know who they have in charge of SC2? The idiot who made C&C Generals)

DoW was a shit and a half, SC was like twelve shits. There is no comparing the two, SC wins.

That is awesome.

The truly gifted programmers always used to leave easter eggs like that in their games.

Hopefully Blizzard North hasn't turned completely carebear.


Also, between Diablo 3, Starcraft 2 and WoTLK, Blizzard will control more people's lives than religion.

Using Korea as something to base the success of Blizzard in China, I foresee much dinero for dems azns.

Blizzard is well known for leaving clues and hints about huge announcements for fans to discover. This could be onto something or then this might be complete bullcrap. We can only wait till 09/09/09 and see.

They do have computers. They are only allowed to play for a few hours a day, by law.

D3 And Darkfall are two completely different games.
And you havnt tried either yet. So please, stop being such a typical judgemental idiot and give both a fair trial before you start saying shit like that.

Ive never played the Diablo Series, but D3 looks pretty fun from the trailers ive seen. I'd much rather play Darkfall because it's more my game but i think i will try Diablo 3 as it looks like a fun game.

You know, they are in deep shit and since games are cheaper than drugs, they ended playing and playing and playing in internet cafees, until the law was made that is.

Sorry to tell you this but Blizzard North hasn't existed for around half a decade. That's why I said this wouldn't really be D3, it's not affiliated with them at all.

It's an interesting circle. Their lives are pretty shitty under communism, so they try to escape it by playing a virtual character, which in turn is limited by their government

Also, I guess there was some kind of epidemic of chinese people dying of dehydration from playing computer games for like 72 hours straight, so this was the solution they came up with
