(I have searched the forums in all conscience and did not find any topic related to this.)
While playing Diablo 2, I always wondered whats the story behind unique item A or why is it called like that. I remember Baldurs Gate 2 (excellent RPG) and its special items, where there was always a story attached to every item, and in many cases (all?), the item properties coincided with the story behind the item.
What do you guys think, would it not be great if something similar would be implemented in Diablo 3? It would make the item even more special in a different way. This being the Lore forum, I guess you guys would agree
Maybe someone active on the battle.net forum should ask Bashiok about this
