Congrats Bob!  What an awesome accomplishment! It's difficult to imagine you'll stop at 99 though.

After a 4 hour drive yesterday, we made it to Ottawa. Went to the aviation museum, had a few slices of the best pizza on earth and took in the fireworks down on the hill.

Museum of nature today, a new hotel over the border in Quebec and off to Quebec City tomorrow.

I suspect you'll have finished a GR 100 by then!

Enjoy the trip!

I appreciate the encouragement.  I over-did it yesterday, though.  My index finger
is complaining about my spam-casting Decrepify on attempts at GR 100.    I may need
to take it slower.   :)

I solved my connection issues, and have D3 loading again. I'm pumped with how fast this new computer is going to be!

I share your excitement.  We just got a new PC a few months ago, and I've been thrilled with how well D3 runs on it.  Looks better (since I can now crank up the video quality and stuff), loads and runs everything faster, and of course higher resolution is always a plus.

I finally was able to extract all of the legendary powers for all classes in both softcore and hardcore.  Now I need to clean up the stash and get rid of some characters I never play.  The only other thing I've been doing lately is looking for rainbow goblins.  I found 1 over the weekend, but no wings came of it.

Just for fun I used a bunch of Gems of ease to make a level one Marauders set and self power leveled
my toon in just over two rifts, about 22 minutes. Kind of a waste of materials, but was pretty fun.
I did have a full set of shards to fill in the equipment I didn't have.

I'm kinda working on the same thing.  I have three Gems of Ease up to level 25 so far.  I was gonna try to create a "universal starter set", some armor, helm, and one-hand weapon, maybe a few other pieces.  Stuff that every character can use and benefit from.  Then I realized that at the very least, the Primary Stat would either have to be omitted (e.g., load up on Crit and Vitality) or I'd have to restrict it to one class, or at least classes that use the same Primary Stat.

It didn't occur to me to create a set for a specific build, but that sounds fun, too, and I'm kinda running out of things to do.

I was a little bored yesterday, and loaded up my UE Multishot Demon Hunter on the PTR to test out the new items. I re-rolled the new Yang's bow until I got a decent ancient, and just a decently rolled Dead Man's Legacy....and wow. The increase in power was amazing. I cleared a GR80 in under 5 minutes, when I had struggled surviving in a GR75 before. It was a total cake walk, and I loved it.

Now my biggest problem is going to decide whether I want to go with a DH or Barb when the new patch rolls out. Barb has finally gotten some love, and it's been so long since I played one. The nostalgia might be nice!

Well, I cleaned up my softcore and hardcore stashes quite a bit.  Also, I deleted all but 3 characters (so many open slots now).  It took some time, but it was worth it.  I still need to organize the stashes, but the bulk of the work is done.

That is awesome! I'm thinking of doing something similar with all of the useless ancient primals I  have, plus the LoN rings. I'm only missing like 15 slots!  ;D

I've been playing a lot on Europe lately, because I've still got some open slots there, and Mrs. Orbert wanted to play some D3.  So I got her started, and most of my recent sessions have been leveling up gems for her and stuff.  It's kinda funny.  When she's in town, she spends far more time with Myriam transmogging and dyeing her gear than anything else.  Her characters don't have the best gear, but they always look fabulous!  I sit with her sometimes and help her tweak her gear.

Anyway, I decided to play my Skellymancer on Americas a bit and holy crap, the Season is still going?  I'd actually forgotten about it.

Yeah, with all of the new buffs slated for the next season, I'm ready to wrap this one up.

Right now I'm jacking with ISBoxer, trying to multibox, but I keep running into random unknown errors, so no luck yet.

Well, I've managed to kill off two HC Barbarians in the past couple weeks. One was seasonal, and got on the leaderboards before biting it. The other was last night and died to two blue packs in a GR68. I got cocky, and was progressing nicely. I ended up losing my Furious Charge charges, had Nerves of Steel proc, and couldn't escape in time. I know I could've beaten a GR70 with this guy too, to unlock primals.

Oh well - the new cubed powers for HOTA will make leveling back up to 70 a breeze, and I have more set gear stashed away now than I did after losing my seasonal barb.

Bummer Ray. I also started keeping a complete set of gear ready if I get one of my HC toons killed.
