So it seemed, when an observant fan noticed that the name of the quest in one of the v1.08 preview screenshots was different than any quests in the game today. You can see the screen to the right, with the quest entitled “Restoration of Hope” active, on Hell difficulty.Fans were speculating that this was a new quest from D3X; perhaps an added quest to transition from Act Four on to Act Five in the Diablo 3 expansion? But if that’s the case, then why is the background in the screenshot from Act One, rather than Act Four? Happily, a Blue popped in to explain (or to perpetrate a clever cover up; you be the judge).wow gold
Adria (the witch of Tristram from the original game) is still alive. The protagonist aids Leah in rescuing Adria from the city’s sewers. Adria reveals that the key to stopping the forces of hell is the Black Soulstone, which can trap the souls of the seven Lords of Hell and destroy them forever. The protagonist resurrects the soul of the traitor Horadrim, Zoltun Kulle, in order to recover the Black Soulstone. Kulle reveals that it is hidden in his archives. After recovering Kulle’s body and some of his blood, so that he can open his lair, the protagonist is forced to defeat him after he attempts to take the soulstone for himself. Upon returning to Caldeum, the protagonist finds the city under attack by Belial’s forces. Adria and Leah fight their way to the palace with the aid of the protagonist, revealing Belial as having taken the form of the Emperor of Caldeum to deceive them.
When we’re planning out UI changes, we’ll often move around and reposition elements from our UI mock-up template that we’ve had on-hand since before the game shipped. Certain elements have changed over time, and in this particular case, one of the Act IV quests that appeared in the template was later renamed from “Restoration of Hope” to “The Light of Hope” before Diablo III was released. Also, for the sticklers out there, the background also isn’t the view of the High Heavens from Act IV, and instead is the familiar Act I background.
