Impressive GR80 hard core.  I have fifty levels to catch up.  Not going to happen.

That is insane that it ended like that.  That DB screwed up that play so badly.  He could have done just about anything else and it wouldn't have been a touchdown.

I am moving forward with Blood Nova and Trag-Oul.  I am now on T7 and P202.  Nice to cross the 200 mark.  I am slowly gearing myself up.  I just got the Gizzard legendary gem up to 25 ranks.  Should be interesting to see how much that helps.

I completed the Rathma set, and even the Jesseth set.  So I thought the game was telling me to switch back to a Pets based build.  I did that and almost promptly died.  I haven't analysed what is messed up with my set up but at this point my nova/lance build is way more capable.  I am now up to P160 and I can handle T6 comfortably if a bit slow.  Unsurprisingly I am needing upgrades to my rings and ammy.

Well I have been working on a blood nova build.  Pretty fun, but yes it is also a bit nerve wracking.  There are been a couple times where I spam it a bit too quickly.

At this point I am about P137.  T6 I think.

Well I was getting tired of making slow progress so I pushed forward to see if I could finish Chapter 4 for my HC Necro.  Guessed what happened?

I made it. :P 

I know...you thought I died.  I came a bit close.  I am definitely punching above my weight class at this point.  The last achievement was doing the GR20 one.  My rift runs are all between 12-15 minutes.  I once finished the rift with under 30 seconds left.  A couple close calls but I never triggered the Final Service proc so I must be doing something right.

 
So I have the full Trag-Oul set.  Yeahies?!  The idea of doing a blood based build in HC just seems wrong.  My killing speed right now is abysmal (I actually fairly ok when I am just inundated with monsters).  So I need to change something up.  I guess I might as well go crazy and do a blood build.  Ultimately if anyone has advice on doing a blood build or how to boost my current build I would love to hear it.

I mostly finished the Darkening of Tristram event on my main account.  It was fun enough.  I tried with two HC characters.  Both died before I did it softy.

My Euro Trash Necro just dinged P90.  I think I have settled on a build.  https://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Sssith-1821/hero/102911288  Not sure what set to go for, though I will soon, I hope, have Trangs.  I am doing P3 pretty safely if a bit slowly.  Just finished getting some better gear so I am hoping that becomes a little faster.  Closing in on Chapter 4 stuff.

So I started a new hard core monk to do this.  I went to Old Tristram and before I got to the portal I had to kill a monster, and that popped me to level 2.  I wonder if I will get the achievement dealing with killing Diablo with a new character?

I got down to level 9 or so, before I had to stop.  Will the portal still be open when I return to the game?

PCs / Intel Chip Design Flaw

https://www.pcmag.com/news/358249/intel-chips-have-a-major-design-flaw-and-the-fix-means-slowe

Not sure yet how much of this is fear mongering.  The upshot is that a design flaw in the chip architecture allows code to be able access protected kernel memory.  The article above is stating that it might cause a 30% degradation of speed.  If true this is very very large problem.  The article states that it affects all Intel chips over the last decade.

I have yet to do a weekly challenge.  Maybe not this week I guess.

Turns out I am a dirty liar.  I was actually P50 not P70.  I leveled it a bit last night and I am up P58 or so.

Anyone doing the darkening of Tristram?  I found two pages (4 & 6).  Not exactly clear how I make this work but I am going to try and do this.  I imagine you people did before as this is the second time through.  Seems like a fun thing.  Is this something that I should avoid doing with my HC Necro?

At this point I have not really settled on a HC Necro build.  Not really happy with Corpse Explosion, but any time I do something different my killing speed slows down.  The Revives don't seem to cut it.  Lance seems to be geared for only a single target.  Devour doesn't seem to help with killing speed, more of a survival tactic.  Simulacrum has a two minute cool down.
