Diablo: The Mystery of Klar and Tryneus delves into the one potentially interesting aspect of the latest Diablo 2 Patch. Is this a Diablo 3 related change?

"One of the odder tidbits in the v1.13 patch notes is this little line, "Updated two Act 5 mercenary names to Klar and Tryneus." What does this mean? Why was the change made? Has it been confirmed? Yes. Thanks to MakeLoveNotDupe's screenshot we know both of them are now hireables on the test realm, and thanks to the code-delving of Silospen, we know that the names were indeed "updated."

So it's been done. But why?"

It's an interesting read. I think it would be really cool if they were already integrating Diablo II with Diablo III.

Leord3138d ago

Well,on the Barbarian side, they have already done so. The Barb character IS the same in D3, they said so!

DeepThought3138d ago

That's a good point, I totally forgot about that. I hope they have some more surprises before the release of DIII

Leord3138d ago

I think there's also mentioning about the tribes in one of those lore entries they released. From Aldib Hazib or whatever his name is...

Leord3138d ago

It's kinda weird indeed. Especially with the original meaning of the names, compared to the new ones.

I think he might have stumbled upon something real here!

Always finding that needle in a haystack eh?

Medievaldragon3138d ago

hey, it's fun to try to find conspiracy theories, and to speculate. The excitement factor is something that's been lagging on D2 for years. So if something new happens and it's meaningful it spawns questions. Why?

Blizzard never does anything without a reason. Even if it's just to throw people off of the real trail. :)

Leord3138d ago

True. Could be a ruse as well. Not necessarily meaning to it.

Medievaldragon3138d ago

I can almost bet these characters will be prominent in a new Diablo novel.

Cogo3138d ago

Indeed. Are there any novels in the works right now?

Medievaldragon3138d ago

During my interview with Richard A. Knaak back on 2006-2007, he slipped there were more novels coming from different authors. I have been camping Pocket Books publisher every 3 months: Are there new novels? She always denies there's any. at least none she can talk about (you know contracts, NDAs, etc. won't allow her to this early).

Are there Diablo novels in the horizon? You bet.
