The Lore of King Kanai

King Kanai is an NPC (non-player character) in Diablo III. If you have ever taken one of your characters to obtain Kanai’s Cube, you have seen Kanai’s ghost appear and point at the Cube.

But, who was King Kanai? There’s plenty of lore about him in the Diablo III game, and some additional information about the inspiration for the character that is presented outside of the game.

Galthrak The Unhinged

This is Galthrak the Unhinged. I got this pet from a Menagerist Goblin in between Season 11 and Season 12.

The flavor text on Galthrak the Unhinged says: From the time he was a broodling, all he wanted was to be a Rift Guardian. He studied for many years, but was ultimately found wanting. Take him on a rift with you, and he’ll be happy.

Highlights from Season 16 (Season of Grandeur)

Season 16 of Diablo III was called Season of Grandeur because players benefited from the legendary power of the Ring of Royal Grandeur.

This ring reduces the number of items needed for set bonuses by 1 (to a minimum of 2). In short, it “unlocked” the set bonuses of every set, for every class, earlier than typical. Players did not need to actually have a Ring of Royal Grandeur in order to benefit from this buff.

The Lore of Valla the Demon Hunter

If you are playing the female Demon Hunter in Diablo III as your character, there is reason to believe that she might be Valla.

So, who is Valla?  According to the Diablo Wiki,  Valla was born around 1265 (in the “Diablo universe” timeline).  She was born around the time that connects to the Diablo II game.

Sometime later, Valla’s younger sister, Halissa, was born. The sisters were close. At least one, if not both, of the girls parents were sawyers – people who sawed timber for a living.

Highlights from Season 15 (Boon of the Horadrim)

Season 15 was the Boon of the Horadrim season. It gave players extra stuff for completing Bounties. It also had the Rathma’s set as the “freebie” for Necromancers. Those who finished Chapter IV got a creepy hand pet.

In this blog post, I have a quick look at the progress I made through Season 15. Overall, I wish I could have spent more time playing than I did. But, I’m not unhappy with how things worked out.

My Thoughts on Diablo Immortal and BlizzCon 2018

I was fortunate enough to attend BlizzCon 2018 in person, (thanks to help from a friend). It was my third BlizzCon, and I had so much fun hanging out with friends and talking with people in the Diablo community – some of whom I was meeting for the first time.

In this blog post, I wanted to share my thoughts about Diablo Immortal, how it was announced at BlizzCon, and the reaction of fans of the Diablo series of games. I’m well aware that this blog could easily attract people who are upset, disappointed, and/or still enraged by the whole situation. Be aware that comments on this blog are moderated.

Highlights from Season 14 (Season of Greed)

In Season 14, I tried something new. Instead of focusing on one character, I split my time on two characters. One was a hardcore Barbarian, which was playing as part of the Solo Self Found League. The other was a softcore Demon Hunter, which I was playing with groups.

In this blog, I have gathered up the best of the screenshots I took while playing my softcore Demon Hunter.

Season Journey Chapter IV (Season 14)

In Season 14, I decided to play a Hardcore Barbarian as part of the Solo Self Found League. I did a Season Rebirth on Zena, a Barbarian that I’ve had for a very long time.

Unfortunately, she didn’t make it all the way through Chapter IV. So, this blog post shows what happened at what turned out to be the end of my Season 14.
