No but within, maybe at least the barbarian might have had second thoughts of why he'd come to that place and that he would have better be somewhere else that moment or not have come at all.They never openly objected - the priest did. I think that's the big difference here.
Valid point. Angels are battered, demons are basically holocausted by Malthael along with many humans and the nephalem hero is the most powerful now.I know who Rathma is. I think it would be interesting if he was the one to summon Lilith, but they better have a good explanation for it - after all, the last we've seen him, Rathma was all about maintaining balance and since the High Heavens are supposedly shut closed, it kinda appears that summoning a powerful demon would only further upset the balance.
Now only humans are more than angels or demons, at least on Sanctuary. Well, Angels rarely came anyway. It was mostly demons and humans. So, Rathma would like the nephalem grow again albeit without a Worldstone.
I guess, Rathma wants to make demons great again because Malthael destroyed most of them and the prime evils were annihilated? It might be an entirely different objective.
Maybe this nephalem became a tyrant and Rathma wants to put the RoS hero down and for that the character needs all the help? Also, Rathma was in good relations with mother Lilith so it's possible that now it was somehow a safe time to appear and also rescue the Apocalyptic Babylon the Great-like villain?
Oh boy, Imperius is going to die. Yeah, maybe angels would have a hold on the balance now but still there's the nephalem hero to face them along with humanity or part of it.Or maybe... maybe that is his plan? After all, in Diablo 3 the Heavens were saved by the Nephalem, so obviously the angels know how insanely strong Nephalem could be - and, uhm, Lilith always wanted to dominate both Heaven and Hell by using the Nephalem, so she'd definetely be considered a major threat by the Angiris Council. Thus, maybe Rathma wants to ensure that the High Heavens stop their isolationism by forcing their hand?
I doubt Inarius is needed. Diablo had little resistance opening the High Heavens gates.Or maybe he needs Lilith to free Inarius in hopes that he knows a way to open up Heaven? Or maybe he just got tired of the balance thing or came to a conclusion that the only way to ensure balance is to do exactly what Lilith wanted, i.e. wipe out the Burning Hells and the High Heavens, leaving only the Nephalem, who by nature are both good and evil?
I don't know if Lilith wanted all others to die but only a safe haven like Inarius.
Nah. Inarius should be in Hell, locked away, defenseless which means Lilith will go there and try to rule. It's probably where we'll face the villain.Don't know, but it's definetely interesting to see how they explain Rathma getting involved, but ultimately - I don't think Rathma and Lilith are going to be our enemies, heck, I wouldn't be surprised if we, more or less knowingly, worked for them through the base game. The story team talked a lot about pyrrhic victories, so... maybe that's something they're going for? I for one think it would be cool if the whole D4 plot was Lilith manipulating us into freeing Inarius for whatever reason - we'd do it, because we've seen that the world is crap and we believed that freeing Inarius would help save us, but instead it would only give Lilith what she wanted.
It remains to be seen what the RoS nephalem hero would do, side with whom or if with anyone at all than the humans, assuming they don't retcon the character's existence.
Using Inarius as a breeding slave would be useless. Now, the nephalem breed on their own together.
Lilith is a demon. I don't think the character has softer plans than Inarius who wanted to lead.
Also, why not here Diablo IV suggestions ?
