wow, nice gloves. i don't play much monk but as an almost entirely solo player, i'd roll the armor off, probably for critical hit damage.

jealous of the reroll. i've gambled a primal but all the rest have been drops. haven't reforged one yet.

i know it's dumb but i haven't been able to bring myself to salvage the non-useful primals i've found (2 primal gladiator gauntlets?!? awesome). there might be *some* situation where that item becomes useful... and 15 souls is not much more than what you generally get from a rift run, maybe 2 if you're unlucky. not much better than just selling them for gold.

got a couple gr93s with my barb. failed a couple 94s by 3-5 minutes. triggered nerves once or twice in those. that's probably gonna be it for the season. got a head start salvaging stuff in the stash. gonna be a pain making space/deciding what else to keep...

So I just did a rift that was insane.  It had about 10 bosses and about 20 goblins.  T6, and I had just moved up to that level so handling all that was a bit beyond my character.  I died about 6 times before I cleared the level.

So the questions is...WTF.

If you hit the Escape key, you have the option to lower the difficulty
in game for future reference.  This works provided a GR isn't open.

and only for SC.

the RNG gods smiled down on you. or, sometimes you get the rift, sometimes the rift gets you. sounds exciting! :)

finished Spoonbenders. enjoyable enough. had to push myself a bit to get through the first half, but it finished well.

also finished Artemis, by andy weir. about a woman on a lunar colony and the trouble she gets in. hard SF in the mold of the martian, but not the laugh-out-loud, can't put it down book that the martian was. this wasn't a home run, but still a good read.

a few pages into a horror anthology (best of 2017, edited by ellen datlow). also have a copy of invasion of the body snatchers (jack finney) that i may switch to...

1. Spoonbenders, Daryl Gregory  - 2.5/5
2. Artemis, Andy Weir - 4/5
3.

this has happened to me but not in a long time. i don't think getting hit stops waypoint use; otoh, anxiety-inducing to pull up the map when you're getting hit by anything in HC, and WPs are irrelevant in rifts...

edit: got gr86 this morning after a scare with some dervishes. can probably improve substantially with some build adjustment and a bit of luck.

HOLY FUCKING SHIT THAT REALLY HAPPENED

talking to a lot of people around here (we live a couple miles from US bank stadium, i can see the stadium from work) that feel pretty much like this guy. no shame in losing to the pats in the SB, imo. ;)
