Ponies' Rite of Passage by HowXu Ponies' Rite of Passage by HowXu
:iconprincesscadenceplz: :iconhellestia: :iconlunamadplz:

"You are worthy heroines! We augment your skill and grant you entry to the interior of Sacred Palace, wherein lies the Elements of harmony. Beware. You will not be alone. Discord, the Spirit of Chaos and disharmony, is already inside.

Lauren Faust has always been our benefactor, but even she cannot help us now. For Discord blocks Lauren Faust 's spiritual presence from entering the Chamber of the elements. Only you, ponies, have the power to defeat Discord now.

Discord threatens the Elements of harmony --and through it, the Equestria, itself. You must stop him before he gains full control of the sacred elements. With it under his control, Discord could shatter the boundaries between this world and the Tartarus, thus allowing the hordes of the ancients Evils to pour forth into the mortal realm like an unstoppable tide!

If you are weak, the world as you know it could be lost forever. You must NOT fail!"

Is there anyone recognize these quotes ? Yes, It's a crossover of DiabloII: lord of destruction. These are the lines that we will heard when we face the 3 ancient barbarians at the Arreat Summit and "Rite of Passage" is the title for this mission. With a little modification I made,it turn into a pony version.:D

If you'd like to heard the original quotes, you may go to here [link] (0:25 and 3:12)

Twilight sparkle as the Sorceress
AppleJack as the Paladin
Rarity as the Necromancer
Pinkie Pie as the Assassin
Rainbow Dash as the Amazon
Fluttershy as the Druid
Princess celestia, Princess Luna and Princess Cadence as the Ancient barbarians.

After the third Alicorn appeared, I just can't get rid of this idea out of my mind. so today, I finally make it happen.

It takes quite some time for me to think what classes should each of the mane 6 become. TS and FS are obvious. Faith and honesty make AJ a perfect Paladin, but I'm not sure how to manage the rest 3. Eventually, I decided to let RD become a Amazon since they are both tough and confident females, PP become a Assassin since she can appear at anyplace anytime which is a fantastic talent for an assassin, and RR become a necromancer since she is a unicorn who happen to be the only one out of the 3 that could use magic.

Anyway, hopes you like it.

I don't play Diablo, and I think this is awesome!!!

Because only the Necromancer knows how to accessorize properly.  Seriously every other character I've played, has trouble looking the part in the equipment I find.

Nice! Interesting concept, I must say, although I hate this part and I always have because of the one that would never stop leaping around... Took me a full 20 minutes to kill him... -.-

*walks past princesses and into the palace and get elements while all of the ponies just stare at you as you walk out with the elements with no fight at all* now thats an epic mood killer right?

Also, if those 3 were meant to guard this palance, WHY DID NOT THEY STOPPED DISCORD FROM ENTERING, yea, let powerful guardians not do anything to stop evil villain, but let them fight heroes so that heroes die or are to tired to safe the world, while not bothering to help them.
HowXu Featured By Owner May 1, 2013
good point.:XD:

In Diablo 2, the reason why the guardians didn't stop Baal, the demon, is that a betrayer give Baal a relic which block the guardians' intervention and allow Baal to enter the worldstone chamber without any resistance.
CommanderEX Featured By Owner May 2, 2013
But if guardians can not stop great evil from entering in place what they are guarding, why would they bother to fight heroes who try to help, it just waste heroes time, there is risk they can kill heroes, and even if Heroes will win, they will be to tired to enter and save the world, or even better, main villain will just sit and watch as guardians fight heroes, and then kill those who are still alive.

In the show Celestia and Luna are useless enough by not helping or failing, so I hate the idea that in here not only they not help but also they get in the way.

And do I need to mention that 3 powerful Alicorns vs 6 normal ponies is totally unfair, even 1 vs 6 may be to much.
