So Diablo 3 will be coming out Soon(ish)™ and I was wondering, where is a good place to start with diablo lore?
I blundered into WoW, without knowing any of the lore, and never really appreciated. I decided to pick up one of the books one day, and just start reading it, and I didn't realise how much story there was behind it. To me back then, Thrall was just some dude who sat on a throne. Sure he was warcheif and all, but he just sat there. It wasn't until I read about him and his story that I realised, he had a pretty bad ass history.
But I don't want this to happen with Diablo. I've never played any of the previous Diablo games, but I plan on picking up Diablo 2 with the Diablo 3 collectors edition on the USB stick. Where would be a good place to start with the Diablo franchise though? I looked on the Blizzard store, and there a lot of reading material out there, but I just don't know where to start. I know there's the book of cain coming out soon as well, would that be a good start?
Any help would be appreciated
