Skins <Diablo>

These are the Skins that are based upon this Universe, reflecting different versions of our Heroes.

  • Angelic Valla (from Nexus-altered Sanctuary) - Epic
    • Inarius was dead, and his disciples would be forever changed. Hatred burned within Valla's angelic heart, but she knew, if it could be tempered, it would be a powerful weapon.
  • Archangel Auriel (from Nexus-altered Sanctuary) - Rare
    • It is said that the power of the Nexus amplifies what lies within a warrior's heart. While Auriel's countenance has changed, the light of Hope within her is more resplendent than ever.
  • Archangel Diablo (from Nexus-altered Sanctuary) - Rare - provided from Eternal Conflict
    • Bringing a whole new meaning to "Holy Terror."
  • Archangel Tyrael (from Nexus-altered Sanctuary) - Rare
    • Each archangel's armor is a manifestation of their spirit. While his appearance had changed during his battles within the Nexus, his dedication to justice remained steadfast.
  • Archon Li-Ming (from Nexus-altered Sanctuary) - Rare
    • Once, only wizards who had spent countless hours braving the inferno were able to attain the fabled archon armor. Those who adorned it were both respected and feared. Then came transmog...
  • Auriel (base skin) - Rare
    • It is through the archangel Auriel that the power of hope flows into the fabric of creation. Her eternal light illuminates even the darkest souls. Seeking harmony in all things, she is a mediator, a counselor, and when the need arises, a fearless warrior.
  • Azmodan (base skin) - Rare
    • The Lord of Sin rules over a densely populated land of Hell where both the greatest joys and despair, and the deepest depravities can be experienced. But it is never enough for Azmodan, who has set his eyes on the realm of Sanctuary.
  • Berserker Kharazim (from Nexus-altered Sanctuary) - Rare - provided from Heroes 2.0
    • Though his memories elude him, Kharazim knows that his past is marked by his feral rage. Thankfully, the Hellfire Cabal provides the perfect target for his aggression.
  • Blood Raven Sylvanas (from Nexus-altered Sanctuary) - Rare - provided from Malthael's Bargain
    • Those who fight against evil are often the most affected by it. The Rogues of Khanduras learned this well when their former sister Sylvanas fell in league with the maiden of Anguish, Andariel.
  • Bone Visage Xul (from Nexus-altered Sanctuary) - Epic
    • In accordance with Mendeln's decrees, the bones inlaid within Xul's armor serve as a symbol of his mastery over death and the helm as a grim reminder that death surrounds us all.
  • Cassia (base skin) - Rare
    • After shattering the Worldstone, the young Amazon Cassia had changed. She had seen hatred, terror, and destruction firsthand. If the Askari were to survive the coming darkness, they needed an army. She would begin their training immediately.
  • Deckard (base skin) - Rare
    • As an avid scholar, Deckard Cain has dedicated his life to the pursuit of knowledge. He has been an advisor, storyteller, and friend to Sanctuary's greatest heroes, guiding them through peril time and again. When Deckard speaks, it's wise to stay awhile and listen.
  • Demonic Auriel (from Nexus-altered Sanctuary) - Legendary
    • An angel can never truly become a demon. But once the Lord of Hatred corrupted Auriel's spirit and bound it within a mistress of the Burning Hells, most mortals would struggle to tell the difference.
  • Demonic Imperius (from Nexus-altered Sanctuary) - Epic
    • The Lord of Wrath is said to be the greatest warrior in the Burning Hells. His limitless anger is nearly uncontainable: an unholy inferno that would see all life consumed by its profane flame.
  • Demonic Tyrael (from Nexus-altered Sanctuary) - Legendary
    • Of all the Aspects of Sin, Tyrael, the Lord of Pride, is the most ruthless. His every action and every thought serves only to fulfill the desires of his true master: himself.
  • Diablo (base skin) - Rare
    • Known in the ancient tongue as Al'Diabolos, the Prime Evil of Terror, the Demon Lord Diablo seeks to claim the world of Sanctuary for the Burning Hells. His victims are innumerable, his schemes unknowable, and his gender... malleable.
  • Executioner The Butcher (from Nexus-altered Sanctuary) - Rare - provided from Eternal Conflict
    • An executioner's hood hides their identity and discourages offended parties from seeking revenge. Of course, that won't be a problem for the Butcher.
  • Fallen Junkrat (from Nexus-altered Sanctuary) - Legendary
    • The junkrats are the most scarcely seen of the fallen family of demons. Capricious and suspicious to a fault, they prefer to live amongst the ruined war-machines that litter Pandemonium where they scrounge for resources.
  • Grimskull Nazeebo (from Nexus-altered Sanctuary) - Rare
    • The Teganze jungles hold many powerful weapons wielded by both man and demon alike. The Grimskull Visage has been passed down from one Witch Doctor to the next since the Sin War.
  • Hell Iron Diablo (from Nexus-altered Sanctuary) - Rare
    • The heroes thought shattering his soulstone on the Hellforge would end his reign. Now, adorned with the forge's remnants, he would shatter every bone in their bodies in return.
  • Hellflame Nazeebo (from Nexus-altered Sanctuary) - Rare
    • The Hellflame Mask was created in honor of Nazeebo's victory over the Prime Evil. Trusting no one else to guard the black soulstone, he kept it close... Perhaps, too close.
  • Hellwarden Maiev (from Nexus-altered Sanctuary) - Epic
    • Demonic "justice" is cruel and sadistic. The Hellwardens who serve Andariel understand that inflicting physical pain upon their prisoners is not enough. True anguish comes from torturing the mind and soul.
  • Imperius (base skin) - Rare
    • Leader of the Angiris Council and Aspect of Valor, Imperius has valiantly led the armies of the High Heavens to innumerous victories over the demons of the Burning Hells. While his methods are exact and severe, there is no greater defender of righteousness in the entirety of creation.
  • Iron The Butcher (from Nexus-altered Sanctuary) - Rare - provided from Eternal Conflict
    • There are many Butchers within the Burning Hells, but only those who serve Duriel, the Lord of Pain, bolt plates of burning iron to their flesh.
  • Johanna (base skin) - Rare
    • There have been many women who have borne the name Johanna in service of the crusade, and each has given her life to purify her faith. Johanna carries on their legacy as she searches the kingdom of Khanduras for the fallen star.
  • Kharazim (base skin) - Rare
    • To the monks of Ivgorod, the gods are in all things, and their divine will is proclaimed by the Patriarchs. With unshakable faith, Kharazim carries forth the decrees of the thousand and one gods to the ends of Sanctuary and the realms beyond.
  • Leoric (base skin) - Rare
    • Madness. Betrayal. Death. These are the legacy of the Black King Leoric's reign. Driven to madness by the spirit of Diablo, Leoric brought untold suffering on his kingdom. Even after his death there was no release for the Skeleton King.
  • Li-Ming (base skin) - Rare
    • The derogatory moniker "wizard" is often given to mages with rebellious attitudes or an obsession with power. Li-Ming displays a little of both and she's hardly ashamed of it. After all, who are they to judge a wielder of limitless arcane magic?
  • Malthael (base skin) - Rare
    • Once the Aspect of Wisdom, Malthael abandoned heaven after the Worldstone's destruction. In secret, he had resolved to end the Eternal Conflict by becoming a Reaper of Souls and eliminating everything affected by demonic corruption, including humanity.
  • Mephisto (base skin) - Rare
    • Dul’Mephistos, the Lord of Hatred, is said to the be most cunning among his brethren. Even while imprisoned in a soulstone, his vile influence corrupted the Zakarum and manipulated them into breaking the seal, giving him free reign to reunite the Prime Evils and enslave humanity.
  • Nazeebo (base skin) - Rare
    • With cabalistic incantations and vestments of feather and bone, the witch doctor Nazeebo calls upon spirits from the Unformed Land to aid him. Few outlanders encounter a witch doctor in the flesh, without losing their own.
  • Necromaster Xul (from Nexus-altered Sanctuary) - Rare
    • Cloaked in foreign garb, Xul returned from his fight against the Prime Evils as a Master Necromancer. He chose to mentor only a single apprentice, a promising student named Mehtan.
  • Nephalem Johanna (from Nexus-altered Sanctuary) - Rare
    • With the Worldstone's destruction, a new generation of Nephalem arose. They were descended from both angels and demons, yet stronger than both. It was not long before the Nephalem's glory was fully realized.
  • Nephalem Kharazim (from Nexus-altered Sanctuary) - Rare
    • With the Worldstone's destruction, a new generation of Nephalem arose. They were descended from both angels and demons, yet stronger than both. It was not long before the Nephalem's glory was fully realized.

    • Hailing from the Skovos Isles, the Askari, or Amazons, are skilled combatants. The young warrior Nova is an expert sharpshooter; eager to make her mark on the world.

    • Having returned to the Dreadlands after slaying the Lord of Terror, Valla has taken up the mantle of Ordermaster so that she can share her knowledge and experience with neophyte demon hunters.
  • Patriarch Kharazim (from Nexus-altered Sanctuary) - Rare
    • To the Veradani, the distinction between armor and weaponry is open to interpretation. What can provide defense, can provide offense, if the application is right.
  • Prime Evil Diablo (from Nexus-altered Sanctuary) - Legendary - provided from Heroes 2.0
    • After twenty years, all seven essences swirled within the Black Soulstone. With Adria's final betrayal, the seven were combined into one, giving rise to the reborn Diablo... the Prime Evil.

  • Tal Rasha Li-Ming (from Nexus-altered Sanctuary) - Legendary
    • Few sorcerers are as famed as Tal Rasha, who sacrificed himself to imprison Baal during the Sin War. Those wizards who don his armor do so with the intent to live up to his legend.
  • The Butcher (base skin) - Rare
    • An unrelenting hacking echoed off the walls of the Cathedral and as Prince Aidan made his way through its depths, the sound only grew louder. There were no screams; just that dreadful sound... over and over.
  • Tyrael (base skin) - Rare
    • Among the angels it is the Archangel of Justice Tyrael who is humanity's greatest defender. Wielding his sword El'druin against the Burning Hells, the Prime Evils would have enslaved humanity long ago if Tyrael had not intervened.
  • Unraveler Zeratul (from Nexus-altered Sanctuary) - Rare - provided from Malthael's Bargain
    • The deserts of Aranoch are inhospitable in the best of times. After Mephisto bound the demonic spirit to the corpse of the Assassin-Prince Zeratul, things have grown considerably worse.
  • Valla (base skin) - Rare
