    Cydaea herself (the arachnid maiden of lust) gives a little background while you're fighting through the area. If you take the Enchantress into the Tower of the Damned, she'll explain what they are.

    They're called The Flayed, and their skin and flesh is "harvested" for building material. The paths in the Arreat Crater are made of their skin and flesh (at one point, the Templar says "the ground is giving away as it was living flesh" or something like that).

    Thanks, you are well informed. I think I remember that now. There may be expansion potential there. They could break free and be giant co-op required bosses all over A-5.

    Maybe they're related to the Butchers? There was a subclass called Flayed One in D1, and the lory entry for the Butcher says they're artificial beings.

    They were a bit explained by the Scoundrel, too. He said he sneaked into Leah's book and had read about the said creature.

    Yeah, if you look closely at the ground in the hell areas of Act 3, they're all covered in flesh. Like it's a thin layer, like walking on a drum or something. Which is gruesome, though kind of hard to figure how things like the tunnel worms can be under there, since it's just empty space below a thin layer of flesh.

    But try not to trouble your pretty little head over that. I often wonder how the tunnel worms can pop up through the water caves in Act 2 without all the water draining down into their tubes.

    Maybe these "Flayed" are a prime example to cook your meat properly. Look at the size of those worms!
