Accoording to sites such as http://www.battle.net/Diablo2exp/, the Acts in Diablo II have certain title names. For instance, Act II is called 'The Secret of the Vizjerei'. Maybe it's a good idea to somehow rename the page "Lut Gholein" into ' Act II: The Secret of the Vizjerei'. However, the current article describes a lot of info regarding the city "Lut Gholein", so I guess that has to be moved to a new article titled "lut Gholein". If I was only a bit more skilled in editing I would have done it myself, but thought it would be good to ask the other ppl for comments. Oh and I don't know how to do it, of course ;)Hazual 08:43, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Yep. That's right Haz. I'll get right onto it. Cheers from the Mobokill 08:50, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Houses Edit

There is something hanging in the 'houses', or trade houses, in lut gholein. The render is too undefined to me to identify those, so what are those things supposed to be? Seem like some kind of... not jewels, artifacts of some kind. Any clues?

EtymologyEdit

I wonder if Lut Gholein actually translates from something. Lut is Persian (لوت) meaning emptiness, but I think they may have intended it to mean desert, as in the Iranian desert Dasht-e Lut (desert of emptiness). I can't find a meaning for Gholein, but since we may be looking at a latinized spelling from Persian script, it is proving to be difficult. For now, this train of thought remains unresolved, but I leave it here for posterity.

I think "Lut" in of itself is trivia worthy. In both gameplay and lore, Aranoch is pretty empty.--Hawki (talk) 11:07, November 12, 2014 (UTC)
Well since Lut Gholein is always called the "Jewel of the Desert", I was trying to connect Gholein with Persian words for jewel. In that, I was unsuccessful. I'm not really convinced they knew what Lut meant though, as while Aranoch may very well be empty, Lut Gholein is the one thing that stands out from the emptiness.

I've included the trivia without spec. More re-organization of the article as well, but unfortunately needs expansion.--Hawki (talk) 23:10, November 12, 2014 (UTC)
