Matt and Tim, are we going to have a crack at boss mode tomorrow?

Have either of you read guides on how to do it? I had a think and came up with this first suggestion, but happy to do something different if you know better.

Classification:

Multistage fights: Diablo, Belial, Malthael, Urzael
Long runs: Araneae, Butcher, Ghom, Siegebreaker, Cydea, Azmodan, Izual, Adria
Easy runs: Leoric, Kulle, Magda, Rakanoth

Suggested order:

(1) D, Malth, Urz
(2) Belial, Adria, Izual
(3) Araneae, Cydea, Azmodan
(4) Ghom, Siege, Butcher
(5) Rakanoth, Leoric, Magda
(6) Kulle

Yes, I think that's the plan.

Myself, Mikrobe and Tim managed to tick off Boss Mode this evening -  finishing Guardian for me on EU and putting Mikrobe 2 achievements away - needing Adria and level 70 gems. It took 2 attempts and I think a couple of mistakes I made cost us the first one because we came in 30 seconds over, but managed with 3 minutes to spare next time around. It was good fun and a pretty exhilarating face against the clock.

After that we ran a few GRs to level Tim's gems then Mikrobe and I did the Adria speed kill and a few more GRs to level Mikrobes gems.

Season done now for me, although I'll probably try to help Tim with his remaining achievements at some point this week.

Yeah, boss mode was a lot of fun!

And with the Adria kill I'm really close to finishing the season. My highest solo rift is 75 and my gems are 66, so I could get them to 70 without going any higher, but I want to get on the barbarian leaderboard before the end of the season, which is currently at GR80 in Europe, so the gems should come along with that.

Yes, slight frustration first time but only 2 bosses outside the time, so we knew we could do it.  Much slicker the 2nd time.    Looking forward to having some more space in EU!!

M6 set mastered (then I did it in US too).  Quite easy!  I failed twice, then got a GR60 solo.  So now just a 2nd conquest to finish, gems are 57 57 58, and then i'll burn one of those gems to get the tab in Europe.  Will be my first double :D

I advanced two tiers to GR77 (in 11 min) and level 68 gems, so I'm two runs away from finishing the season. To make sure, today I burnt through my large stack of keys in GR60s and 65s, gained nearly twenty paragon levels in just over 2 hours and hoped for gear upgrades. Kadala is incredibly stingy with the Earth set but a rift guardian dropped some new trousers which were augment-worthy, so that's a big damage boost. I'll try to finish it up tomorrow.

Great work on hitting GR77!

Congrat's Tim!

Last night I made GR78 but then failed my first attempt at GR79 by 30 seconds, although it wasn't a great monster spawn and one of the tougher RGs (the leap-attacking reaper), so I decided to drop back to GR78 just to get the gems to 70 and complete the full season journey. I'm not sure how much time I'll have in the rest of the week, and while I could probably make the leaderboard at GR80 with enough attempts (and some augments and small enchantment upgrades) it looks like it will be more stress and work than I can motivate myself to put in. So I gave up that goal before seriously going for it and spent some time auditting my stash so coming out of the season will be a little bit easier.

If I get on on Thursday night then I'll run mid-level rifts and maybe try to work on my seasonal achievement score (currently 850), but otherwise I'll exit the season with a paragon level of 758, only 29 less than my non-season! I put in quite a bit of time but still surprising to me, always pushing on GRs really boosted it!

Good effort - that's still a great accomplishment. I think GR78 or 79 is my highest GR ever - in or out of season...
