I installed PlugY and started a new sorceress to try it out.  So far so good.

Qrbert - the five min T-13 rift is more about the monster density, If you get a crowded rift it's real easy.
Cookie given for "Qrbert".  It made me think of Qbert and brought back a lot of memories playing that game years ago.

I ran a GR 45 without any Set Items, got the Conquest (first try!), so now I have to get the five-minute T13 Rift.  Blew through one as fast as I could, didn't stop to pick anything up, but since it was a Nephalem Rift, it wasn't really "over" once I'd killed the Rift Guardian.  I couldn't cast a Town Portal to get back and see Orek until I either killed all the monsters nearby or ran far enough away to cast one, so that cost me at least another 30 seconds.  I didn't get the Achievement, but I have no idea how close I was.  I think I'll try a few more times, maybe set a timer on my phone or something to see what my time is.

Finished FC4.  Overall disappointed.  There literally is no payoff for having completed any of the tasks.  And all the NPCs are assholes.  Every single one, with one exception.  Longinus is the one stand out in this train wreck.  Interesting story.  Very weird in its own way, but ultimately it has a pay off.

The only redeeming factor in this game is the game play.  It is your standard fare for FC.  Sneak around taking out the bad guys.  Or just go in guns blazing and rip everything to shreds.  Even this had flaws as the Shangri-La missions where just annoying as f*.  Especially the last one.  It sucked moose balls.  Running around in circles trying to kill that f**king bird thing as annoying as hell.  And then there is no payoff.

So is FC5 like FC4 or FC3 or somewhere in between?  If it is like FC4 I might not bother.

At this point I have moved on to Andromeda.  I am going to give this one another try.  Finished the opening sequence which is too long without the ability to save.  I can already see some improvements that they made to the graphics.  Hopefully I will see more as I progress.  Character creation is still pretty lousy.

Completed 3030 Deathwar Redux last week. Thoroughly enjoyed it, although the game didn't deliver the "Monkey island" puzzle solving experience alongside space combat as I'd hoped it would. The story remained satisfying until the end, with the lead character refusing to let go of his principle gripe until the last moment. The game has replay value as well, having started a second play through and been able to do things differently this time around, in terms of experiencing story content. A worthwhile buy for the price.

Crap, maybe that's where the problem is.  I assumed that the five-minute timer ended when the Rift Guardian was dead, the same as with Greater Rifts.  I've been taking my time going back and picking up Death's Breaths and Shinies, because I know that once I visit Orek, there won't be enough time.
Yep, that's a big part of why you aren't getting it.

Running a T13 Nephalem Rift in five minutes is proving to be a pain in the ass.  Is there any way to tell how long it took (besides the obvious, setting a timer or something)?  I run and think I get through it pretty quickly, but obviously it's still taking more than five minutes; I'd just like to know how close I'm getting.  If I'm still like two or three minutes over, I'll just forget about it for now.  If I can't do that, then there's no point in going for the second Conquest.
It's hard to do sometimes, but you should resist the urge to pick up anything.  Some maps are just terrible for density, so wait for a map with a big open area, like the A5 cemetery map.  Run through and look for elites, or big mobs of trash.  Stay away from small numbers of mobs.  As soon as you kill the rift guardian cast town portal and run over to close the rift.
