The main character, Jacob, receives visions of an ancient prophecy from Tyrael's sword. The prophecy leads him to the archangel. It is set 20 years after the events of Lord of Destruction and acts as a bridge between Diablo II and its sequel, giving information on what has been happening in Sanctuary in the two decade gap between games. It is mostly centered in the Dreadlands and the Arreat Crater. Other locations glimpsed at include Lut Gholein.
- An interview with the comic creators indicated that the events took place not long before those of Diablo III. Text in Storm of Light however indicates that it happened long beforehand.
- The series was written as the storyline for Diablo III was being developed, and so was subject to redrafts. One draft had Jacob visiting the Forgotten Tower.
