    Salvage Cube = Nephalem Cube

    Which is funny because nobody heard Jay Wilson say that, but apparently that's true.

    [BLUE="http://forums.battle.net/thread.html?topicId=27810241169&sid=3000&pageNo=4"]It is indeed. I wasn't aware Jay had said that.[/BLUE]

    Sounds like a cube full of tiny nephalem. :)

    I was hoping it was Tyrael's Tiny Love Shack but you can't have it all, I guess.

    Well now that it's been confirmed I don't see why it was such a big deal to not release the name before hand. It does open up some speculation as to it's origins and also if we'll be seeing more of the nephalem in D3.

    I wonder why Bashiok was affraid to reveal that, it doesn't sound like a spoiler to me at all. Besides, it's interesting how the cube came into possession of a blacksmith..

    Yeah no kidding. What's the spoiler, here? If the spoiler was solely "what the cube is named" then who cares, honestly? They're so damn tight-lipped about stuff to a point of frustration.

    Uh, spoiler alert?

    Just kidding.

    Didn't the B-52's write a song about that?

    Kind of, but it has room for improvement. It could be much more explicit, for one.

    "It's much larger on the inside".

    So.. I assume it's safe to start calling it Nephalem Dumpster since now :p

    Is that a quote from Love Shack or Dr. Who?

    Re: Salvage Cube = Nephalem Cube

    This is why its a spoiler:

    Such a Celestial union granted the Nephalem great power. So great was their potential that the demon Lilith attempted to use their power to build an army. Inarius put an end to her malicious designs and used the Worldstone to diminish the power of the Nephalem. Such is the curse upon the Nephalem that each successive generation also loses power. In fact, only the first generation who have kept their full potential.



    The worldstone was destroyed so it is assumed their powers have returned.

    It is not OVERLY spoilerish of course, but it can lead to a lot of assumptions. If we kill all the demons (lilith and Belial etc) then whos left to stop the nephalem? :whistling:

    Doctor Who, but ever time I see a horadric/salvage cube, I think of that.

    People with MBA's in charge of marketing care. I've seen people get reprimanded over letting loose the tiniest (and most insignificant) pieces of information.

    Even with the Nephalem link, I don't see it as a spoiler. It just leads to much more speculation.
