GG on the keywardens, you are right, at that point they are a bit of a challenge but as you found, you can get them. 

In terms of the Vambraces, you have 2 options to get set/legendary items outside of random drops or friends finding stuff and dropping it for you. 
1) Get a Rare version of the item, and there is a cube recipe to upgrade to legendary.  This is best for upgrading weapons due to good value for resources
2) You will be getting blood shards (another resource) spend those at an NPC called Kadala.  You gamble for an item type, you'll get either blue, yellow, green or gold!

Its just a matter of time and you'll get the gear you need to make your build nice and strong. Then you work on rerolling a thing, or finding stronger/ancient versions of your gear.

When you do have Best in Slot (BiS) gear, it doesn't mean you have the best, with the various types of attributes, let alone the rolls, you might have the best vambraces, but it had all the wrong mods.  Later you might get one with all the right ones and get a massive increase.

Next expansion? The expansion was 3.5 years ago.  We got the necro .. and one or 2 free bits.  There is almost no chance of more paid content to expand on D3.  This year had almost 0 coverage at Blizzcon.  Every other franchise is the new exciting thing.

Next step, join in some MP with whoever you see, tell them what you need in Chapter 3 .. they will help you tick stuff off the list! Onto more rewards.

yes, however it helps steam game count, +1exp for that,   Free trading cards are good .. might just hide the game if its that bad!

The others have handled most of your questions.  Enjoy Act V, then go to Adventure mode.  Press Shift and J at some point to see the Seasonal Journey. I'm guessing you just need to do 5 bounties and a Rift to finish chapter 1 now.    You don't get a reward for chapter 1, but you'll be close to finishing chapter 2 when you'll get TWO pieces of an end game set.  Next 2 chapters are 2 more pieces each. 

Having 6 pieces of a set, even if the rest of your gear is average will give you a whole new world of power.  Did you/do you MP much?  I suggest get in a MP game and you'll get some quick paragons.  Getting up to paragon 200 won't take too long, this will let you max the first of your stats  Have you heard of the Icy-Veins site?  https://www.icy-veins.com/d3/crusader-builds  This will let you know what skills/gear to go for.   Until you have some gear, just get what is fun and works.  That site also tells you which mods to reroll with the Mystic.  Or I prefer the Supermatt app ;)

In terms of MP, DO IT!  you get rewarded with better everything for not being solo.  You won't be a burden being in a game, and you won't miss out on anything compared to our old D2 single player days.  You'll probably be invited into games before you ask anyway :P  You will do a normal rift (even if you aren't killing) and get a Greater Rift Token.  The stronger person might do a few of these, then its on to Greater Rifts (GRs).    the EXP and rewards are much better here. 


At some point, I'd suggest getting those other 2 level 60 characters and even if you craft some gear you might get upgrades.  Hit level 61 and all their existing stuff will be trashed quickly. Those legendaries they currently have, the newer versions have much better things on them. 

In some ways I envy you, you have a lot of potential fun in front of you!

Any quick pointers as to what to do with the Mystic?

Buy her a drink at least!! Don't let your wife find out you have a new NPC on the side.

i saw "major annoucement coming" i looked back later and there was a story about him drinking water during a speech.  A small story about what he talked about that wasn't as major as they made it sound to be.

Did Donny just have a "watergate" moment? Especially as he has picked on people for doing that exact same thing before?

For me, one of the main reasons as well as the "Fresh start" which doesnt' last that long is getting a full set basically for free.  Especially as old gear is made redundant.

There are some who focus on non season.  But the bulk seems to be in season if you want to play with someone (you do).  99% of the time, playing with others is always a good thing

SSsithy.  I enjoyed Act V the first time I saw it, some some different types of environments, the story got moved along (yes it has faults of course).  New monsters etc are always interesting to learn what is fodder and what will challenge you.  Enjoy the big boss at the end, its the toughest fight in the campaign.

GG on the achievements ;)  Solid plan.

I might see you both in game with my level 6 necro.  In the past I would play a few hours at the start of a season and rush to 70.  I can't be bothered going too nuts at the moment

Inhale deeply and slowly

Those 6 uniques are probably more than you got in all of your time until you stopped playing.  Just wait till you are post level 70 and get more than 6 gold and green in one single drop from a GR boss later!

Woah!! SSith is playing again!

First off, almost no one ever plays the campaign anymore except the rare situation like yourself playing a character for the first time, and myself now with the necro before I killed him.   As you say, being 45 in act 2 is very different to the terrible grind of the previous 4 linear difficulty settings.  This happened over 3 years ago https://us.battle.net/d3/en/blog/12671560/patch-201-now-live-2-25-2014

before level 70 just do whatever you want, after level 70 all your current gear will be trashed anyway. 

Good to have you back!

hopefully you are playing in the season, if not, do that!  You get a FULL set for finishing the 4th chapter you see here.  https://d3resource.com/journey/

You can do it relatively simple solo, or much faster with help which will be there if you want it.

I found out I have played and really enjoyed a Visual Novel style game in the past.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Traffic_Department_2192  It mixed a lot of dialogue between top down missions.  I see that game came out as freeware 10 years ago
