* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: On top of being a traitor who makes an already horrific situation worse by murdering the King of Westmarch, Lord Wynton calls your Witch Doctor a "primitive heathen" when you start the battle with him.



** The novel ''Storm of Light'', makes it abundantly clear that the initial game's ending isn't the happy one its made out to be. [[spoiler: The Nephalem defeating the prime evil and saving Heaven doesn't magically make Humans and Angels allies, as Tyrael's optimistic speech implied. The fact that Humans played a part in its creation means a lot of Angels blame them, and has Imperius trying to reopen the topic on whether or not to annihilate them. Tyrael's own role in whats happened as well as his status as a mortal has only further estranged him from his own kind.]]
** The novel also shows how humans who aren't the player character fair against demons. While a few of Tyrael's recruits are capable fighters, including a Barbarian, Monk, and Wizard, who've faced demons before, they're nearly overwhelmed and killed by a small band of demons and cultists. [[spoiler:While they've tapped into their Nephalem powers before they're nowhere near the PhysicalGod the PC is.]]

** Cursed Chests task you with some objective to complete under the time limit (such as killing a number of enemies, killing enough waves of enemies, activating Cursed Shrines, etc.). Usually, the timed aspect of the objective is simply for awarding a second chest, but in some cases you won't get a chest ''at all'' if the timer is allowed to run out.

* PermanentlyMissableContent:
** The developers are considering introducing a setpiece revolving around a collapsing dungeon full of treasure that players have to make a decision on whether to run and save themselves or collect the loot and potentially die.
** Considering that all loot in the Diablo series is randomly generated, any items that get lost when the tomb collapses could probably be found anywhere else. Based on experience with the actual dungeon at Blizzcon, the true value was that the tomb was extremely abundant in Resplendant Chests (like, 2 in every room), which are guaranteed to drop a rare item and 2-5 magic items. Plus everything resets when you quit and come back, so you have a chance to go again if the entrance randomly appears.
