Talk:Voll, Emperor of Purity
I can't help but notice that unlike the Voll's Fallen and Voll's Vanguard that make up the Army of Purity in the Dried Lake, Voll himself isn't listed as an undead. This puts Voll in the same category as the Undying in Act 3 and the Pocked in Act 4. Both of those monster types are described, in different places, as Gemlings: the Undying were Sarn's gem-implanted upper class, while the Pocked were slaves and laborers who were implanted in order to work more efficiently. Neither are listed as undead in-game; various items of lore indicate that the Cataclysm mutated the Gemlings and drove them insane, but killed everyone else and raised them as undead.
When we encounter Voll in the Dried Lake, he's different from the shambling monstrosities that his Army of Purity turned into. He's still able to talk, and fights on as though the Purity Rebellion was still raging. He doesn't seem to be undead, just crazy. This leads to the question: Was Voll, leader of the Purity Rebellion, overthrower of the corrupt gemocracy, himself a Gemling? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by TenebrysValentine (talk • contribs) 01:28, September 18, 2016 (UTC)
Anyone can verify that since 3.0.0 Voll in Act 4 can drop The Brittle EmperorThe Brittle Emperor8Voll's Devotion
