Diablo debuted in the acclaimed RPG game of all times Diablo (1996) by Blizzard Entertainment. During the Darkening of Tristram, Diablo influenced the hearts of men, focusing on King Leoric the most and driving him insane. Archbishop Lazarus served Diablo in secrecy and attempted to use King Leoric’s youngest son Albrecht as the vessel for Diablo.

In the events of the video game, a brave warrior fought his way through the lower depths of the Cathedral of Tristram to face the Lord of Terror. The Warrior drove the soulstone housing Diablo’s spirit into his forehead to contain his spirit. However, Diablo possessed him body and soul becoming his vessel.

In Diablo III, it is revealed that the young Warrior was named Aidan — eldest son of King Leoric. In the days following the Darkening of Tristram, Aidan was known as The Dark Wanderer. Always traveling east to free Diablo’s brothers from their soulstone prisons: Baal and Mephisto.

In the end, Diablo was defeated in the Burning Hells. Ever since his spirit remained trapped within the Black Soulstone. It is revealed in Diablo III, that Adria the Witch was in communion with the Lord of Terror as his servant all along. She marked his soul to be dragged into the Black Soulstone. His long-term plan was to one day rise as the Prime Evil with the spirits of the Great and Lesser evils and Leah the Nephalem empowering him.

Several novels are based on the Diablo universe: Some of them are contained in a collection of four novels in the Diablo Archive (which contains: Legacy of Blood, The Black Road, The Kingdom of Shadow and Demonsbane).




This is the default skin of Diablo. These are the available tints. The first tint is the default one which is free. The second one can be unlocked by completing three Hero Quests. Hero Quests are available at level 10.



Kaiju means great beast or monster in japanese. The most widely known to hold the name Kaiju in japanese pop culture is Godzilla — which resembles somehow the head of this Diablo skin.



In a bizarre parallel universe this is the offspring of Diablo and a poor Deep sea Murloc from the depths of Vash’jir.



How to apply a tint and a skin to your character? Join a Practice, Cooperative or Versus Mode game. On the lobby screen, you will see a button on the bottom-left titled: Hero Details.

You will see the following UI Interface pop up. If the skins or tints were unlocked, you can switch your character skin or tint by pressing on the left or right arrow (as shown in the image below).

Hero Quests

Basic Hero Quests

Basic Hero Quests are unique to each Hero. Usually they are focused on using a spell/ability “X” amount of times against any enemy Hero; and the last one asks you to play 10 games with your Hero.


Epic Hero Quests

The Epic Hero Quests are not available until you reach level 10, and until your Hero has completed the 3 Basic Hero Quests. These are not unique for each hero. All Heroes must complete the same Epic Hero Quests.
