As I explained to you last week, Blizzard has released some coded text below Diablo 2 Risen patch 2.5 notes. In recent days, the community has been working hard to try to decode it and they seem to have succeeded.
Of the 666 orange numbers available, 664 have been recovered. It took thousands of clicks on the famous gem, but that didn’t stop players from joining the effort. Then, each number must be cut. In fact, the first three digits represent the position of the word in the text. Then, the six numbers that follow indicate the page concerned, the line and the word to point the finger at.
To centralize information, the community has organized itself around a Google Sheet, the GGM Community’s Diablo 2 Resurrected Mystery Cipher. This makes it possible to create a text whose meaning is still somewhat mysterious. I offer you a French translation below but sometimes it’s a bit strange to read, I grant you. Do not hesitate to
That being said, it looks like the text is some sort of summary of Sanctuary’s history and the events that took place in the various games. Thus, the Vision of the High Heart summarizes the events before Diablo 1, while the passage that speaks of a child trapped in the depths of the earth is irrevocably reminiscent of Albrecht. One also understands the passages that approach the case of the first demons and the lower demons. There is also a mention of Hell in the Vision of Grizzled Eyes.
Afterwards, the text talks about a shadow that is undoubtedly the prowler of Diablo 2. Then we move on to the third stage and the Reaper of Souls with references to the Black Soul Stone or Tyrael. Perhaps the text also mentions the world as when Diablo 4 launches.
At the moment, it’s hard to imagine the text as more than a summary of Diablo’s history. It is important to note that the orange figures appear to have existed for at least 9 to 10 months. The first screenshot of such a figure actually dates from the end of last year, excluding a teaser of a feature that will come with patch 2.6 for example. At that time, no one paid attention to it. Everything has been there for a long time and it took Blizzard to point it out to wake up the community, which then began actively looking for a solution to the riddle.
The stones spoke to me again, showing me visions that only I could easily see. How can others be ignorant of their…? They pushed me aside, didn’t they? I will not waste my breath on savas. The crystals in the earth were prophesying before I knew it, these visions tell us secrets.
