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.

Is this something happens from time to time?  I have never seen so many goblins at once and the amount of boss packs was off the charts.  It felt like a bug, or some weird event.

Yes, it is a feature of NRs.  It is full of fun and chaos to get a gob pack.
I have found as many as 3 different packs on a Dalghur Oasis type map
before.

I have a tough enough time keeping up with those stupid blue goblins.  It was crazy, in a mostly good way, to see that pack.

Well I have fully geared up my monk in Monkey King.  Holy Cow it seem powerful.  I am still leveling gems at this point so I have not progressed beyond GR60.  Soon I will see how far I can go like this.  I am also working on getting Ancient Versions of my equipment at this point.

I found my second primal.  Is there a use for a Primal Executioner?  I can't think of one but I will defer to all of your expertise.

Nope, that one is not useful unfortunately. It's quite a trend in this game...

My monk crossed GR72 off her bucket list.  Trying to get ancient items equipped in all slots.  I assume that is the next step in this process?

Also looking for some boot advice.  Currently wearing crudest boots which gives me two air allies instead of one.  Having an extra ally does not seem to do much, unless I am missing something.  So I am wondering if there is a better choice.  I would love to put the DH's Shadow Boots on if I could somehow get the first 2 set bonus, but unfortunately that does not seem possible.  Any hidden gems out there for me to put on for my monk?

The Shadow set bonus will only work on DH's, unfortunately. The Crudest Boots will double the effects of your ally, which can be nice.

The crusdest boots are important because those two allies are the main source of spirit regeneration. Wave of light uses a lot of spirit
with each cast, you will see the difference if you take them off.

The docs don't say DH only.  Heh...trying to think outside the box.  :o

I didn't notice that two air allies were doubling all the stats.  I guess that means it is giving me 200 spirit back instead of 100?  And doubling the resist bonus?  If so that is well worth it.

I was also really lucky with a reforge of my legendary paws.  See attached I think.  So which stat would you reroll?  Very happy about this.

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.

Welp...I finally ran out of Souls.  No more reforging for me.  I think I will concentrate on seeing how high I can go with my current set up.

There is a ninja double goblin buff going (started in Asia with Chinese New Year but
is going in all realms now) until the start of season presumably.
