    Barbarian confusion

    So I was in game and talking to Cain with my Barbarian and the dialogue is kind of confusing. Am I suppossed to believe that for (1) Cain doesnt recognise the barbarian (2) the barbarian doesnt know who Cain is ?? I thought the barbarian was a returning character from D2 hence the old man look, so why does he need to have Cain tell him the Story of the Skeleton King, and the Horidrim, End of Days, etc etc ??? Or is the game set up that hes just one of the Barbarians from Harrogath and not the one that Killed Baal and already knows the story of whats going on in the past and Diablos history..

    It was planned to be the barbarian from d2 at first but some months ago they changed him to be a completely new person which made me so angry. They've been working on this game for years and they cut everything that gives epicness taste off.

    They wanted to make every character equal and one shouldnt be more unique than another they thought I guess. But the point they dont understand is everyone will pretend as if their barbarian was same barbarian from d2. Just disappointment for barbarian fans...

    I assume it that way, and it may be easier to come up with a name for him too.

    seeing as bliz seems to change the game all the damn time i am sure many people are missing little bits of info unless they follow the news every day

    Necros thread - Im still trying to figure out WHY they dont revert the Old Man Barbarians looks to a new, younger stlye... Id like it if they added an option to add beard or remove beard for the Barbarian , or maybe just add Hair Dye and that would fix it too. Not really in love with the Old Man Barb look as hes not even a returning character anymore....

    Old barb needs his harem of young female barbs for snu snu.:crazyeyes:

    I'm thinking he's still old because the young ones all died defending Harrogath and such. They could lean that way as a reasonable exscuse.

    So he actually benefited from the destruction of his homeland? I like the way you think :nod:

    I guess his backstory was cut out when they decided to remove class-specific quests. Otherwise I guess the barb would have had a few in Act 3, the wizard would have had some in Act 2 related to the Yshari Sanctum etc...and similarly for the other classes.
