    also, what about Batrider and Witch Doctor, are they trolls too?

    Well, Batrider is definately one, he has many facial similarities with warlord, especially his nose.

    Just a little heads up, the Outworld Devourer icon is not showing up on the first posts, it's got an error.

    here's the good one:

    From what I understood Dazzle took Huskar to the Nothl Realm to give him power, but the power Dazzle gave him doesn't let Huskar die and that made Huskar mad because now he can't die and go to "heaven" so now he goes all out in battles and sacrifices alot because he knows there is no problem, or probably does it because he's trying to make an ultimate sacrifice to see if he can actually die. I could have sworn I read a line from huskar to dazzle saying "I never asked you for this curse" or something around those lines but it must have been my imagination because I can't find it now, so I must have been wrong.

    Yeah, Huskar was 'denied his holy sacrifice' when Dazzle 'saved his spirit from eternity'. Which are both pretty much euphemisms for death and resurrection from the dead.

    But I'm interested to hear on how you interpreted his lore.

    And while we're talking about Dazzle and Huskar's lore, does anyone else see their similarities with African [I think] myths and folktales? I mean, just disregarding their aesthetics, the Nothl Realm, in my mind, gives off a picture similar to the representations of African afterlives. Like, the Witch Doctor's spirit world in Diablo 3 [I think that's African, or maybe some other culture? Not really sure, since I don't have much knowledge on non-Western mythologies], if anyone has played/read up on that game.
