    How many Acts? How long are the Acts compared to D2?

    I'm just wondering if anybody here has any knowledge about the acts.

    How far into act 1 is the Skeleton King? Is that the end of Act 1?

    How many acts are there? how long are they compared to D2?

    any ideas?

    There are 4 acts.

    Skeleton King is not the end of act 1, not even half of it.

    4 acts.

    No one really knows for sure, but I think each act might be longer and in way more detail than the D2 acts.

    SK is about a 1/3 of the way through Act 1, with the end of Act 1 fighting The Butcher.(Assumptions, but I think datamining has proved it)

    Act 4 is going to be a full act right? None of that D2 half-act with three waypoints stuff...?

    I hope so. If it's a half act, then the three other acts should be bigger to compensate

    The going story a while back was D3 is a bit shorter than D2, but without the pointless trudges though crap areas like Kurast jungle and the other areas I don't even remember. Less filler, more content is a good thing yes?

    They're aiming at a similar narrative structure (in terms of pacing) as in D2. However, they didn't pull it off in D2 (mostly because Act IV was rushed), so that may not mean much.

    They liked the long build up to the final act, and then having the act be short but intense.

    They also have their internal rules, if content is too long, it isn't always a good thing, especially considering you will have to play through it four times.

    Judging from the datamined info, it's the smallest among all other acts but the settings appear to be pretty intense.

    Also you can see the huge difference in monster designs after the Armaddon was revealed, I think act 4 is the most epic and grand.

    I agree that D2's Chaos Santuary and LOD's Worldstone dungeon was a complete disappointment.

    I hope it's longer than D2. I loved D2 but, yeah ... most of Act 3 felt like drudgery. They're speaking of more bosses to farm and more pockets of high treasure class monsters; creatures with a higher IQ and all that. I hope it's true.

    I'm hoping the the Diablo community get's more love from Blizzard this time arround. Standing by all these years and seeing Bliz expand on WOW. Each time I'd see another ad for WOW I'd just be scratching my head. Like ... didn't anybody like Diablo but me?

    ... and D2 only got one expansion. Maybe this time we'll get a few years of attention before they hang it all up?
