Well my Necro bit the dust.  I was having issues with Blood Rush for a bunch of runs.  It was like there was lag or it wouldn't trigger.  I should have quit at that point but didn't.  I killed a bunch of monsters that then exploded.  I tried blood rush out of it and I couldn't next thing I know my deeds will be remembered.  I didn't even see the Final Service trigger.

A bit bummed.

Condolences.

I've had (softcore) Necros die a few times and I never saw Final Service either.  I thought maybe if it happens too fast, it doesn't trigger, but that would be a bug, presumably a known one.

RIP Sssith.  I hate when you die due to some weird stuff happening, like lag.

If this is accurate it kind of really sucks.  That not working as expected is a big deal.  Until that point I had seen Final Service trigger once.  Ah well, I was having fun with that character.

edit:  a quick google show that you and I are not the only ones who feel that Final Service is not working correctly.  Be careful HC Necros!

I've lost all motivation to play the last few days, so the end of this season can't come soon enough. I'm not looking forward to the gear clean up/clear out after the season - I need more stash tabs!

This describes me as well.  I haven't played for over a week, except to do the challenge rift.

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...

I'm similar.  Matt bought me the Necro, (thanks buddy!).  I had a HC die, that was annoying, I got up to around chapter 5 and the first grind .. and motivation was a bit low.  I did the SC run of the campaign for achievements.  I have a few others I can get but haven't really got that spark.

I do need to get the necro sets.  Perhaps once the season ends and the gear mixes I can easily gear the necro. 

Other games  have been taking gaming time.

Btw, never tried a challenge rift yet, are they fun?

I tried one challenge rift.  I found it to be full of WTF.  It reminded me of a McTar WTF Build.  Nonsensical gear and build choices.  I guess each has a 'right way' to play it but I did not find it fun.  Maybe I just need to get into the whole spirit of the adventure.

I agree with Sssith, the challenge rift are mostly irritating. The rewards are nice, but if I die within 30 seconds I just give up.
The real benefit of these challenge rifts is using the rewards in a new season.

So my seasonal Cursader had 604 paragon levels.  My Monk had 222.

Now that the season is over my monk has 612 paragon levels.  So basically those 222 levels is the equivalent of 8 paragon levels once you are in the 600 range.

lol...I had visions of being close to 700 levels.  LOLtastic.

Any advice for what to do with duplicate legendary gems?

Level 'em up and use Caldesann's Despair.  Caldesann's Despair is a cube recipe that lets you add Vit or any mainstat to Ancient Legendary and Set items.  Next level of the grind is running higher and higher Grifts to level up the Legendary gems.  The higher the level of the gem, the more stat gets added to the item.
