Diablo 3 / Re: Season 13

Uh... thanks?   ;D

Anyway, most of you probably already got an email, but I just got one from Blizzard announcing that Season 13 will end on June 3. 

Actually, the email itself was to remind everyone to get the new pet, Blaine's Bear, who looks just like the other teddy bear except with different colors/markings.  But he's pretty cool.  I think it's hilarious watching the teddy bears running to keep up with you on their short little legs.

Qrbert - the five min T-13 rift is more about the monster density, If you get a crowded rift it's real easy.

So it would seem!  I had a rift in Briarthorn Cemetary, wall-to-wall Elites, wearing Nemesis Bracers and all my equipment tuned for Damage over Toughness, and I was getting used to not picking things up, even Shineys.  I did pick up a few, when they happened to drop right where I was going to click to move anyway, but apparently I still finished in time because I visited Orek and got the Achievement and notification.  Finally!

Then I snapped out of my daze and ran back into the rift to see how much I could pick up in the seconds that remained.  Piles of Death's Breaths, a couple more Shineys, and just as 2 seconds remained, I clicked on a Resplendent Chest.  I heard "Zinggg!" as an orange star appeared on my mini-map, then I was suddenly back in town.  Damn!  I'll never know what it was.  That's what bugs me the most, not knowing.

Oh well, Nicole the Witch Doctor is now a Conqueror.

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.

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.

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.

Yeah, but then I'd have to work a DH all the way up.  Any word how much time is left in this season?

Ah yes, that was the other one.  I might try it.  Thanks for the tip!

I finally mastered the Jade Set Dungeon.  Yeah yeah, I know, everybody says it's one of the easiest ones.  The problem is that I just don't like Locust Swarm and thus have never really learned to use it.  I caved and consulted some online guides.  Eventually I turned a pretty bad failure into a victory so go me.

Ran a GR 75 for the Conquest, which was cool, so now I'm on whatever level they call it where you can get the Stash Tab.  Haven't gotten that far in a while, mostly because I hate Set Dungeons, but hey I was bored.  I need to finish a T13 rift in five minutes and finish a second Conquest.  Egads.  I'm thinking I can eventually get the T13 Rift, and for the second Conquest, I was thinking of the one where you kill 350 enemies in a Cursed Chest event, but I don't remember now if there's a difficulty requirement.  That may be an issue.  But there's no way I'm mastering eight Set Dungeons, so there aren't a lot of options at this point.

I wasn't involved, but I would love to be.  I think it's a good show.  And yeah, if I were writing a Trek-like show, this would be it.

People keep talking about Family Guy, they wondered if it was gonna be like Family Guy in Space, they didn't know if they'd like it because they don't like Family Guy, they were disappointed that it wasn't like Family Guy, they were pleasantly surprised that it wasn't like Family Guy...  At least half of what I've read regarding the show brings up Family Guy in one way or another.  Fuck Family Guy!  I've never watched Family Guy because what little I've seen looks stupid.  I watch The Orville because it's like Star Trek TNG only with real people.

It's been renewed for a second season, but there's still one episode from Season 1 that they haven't aired yet, so we're gonna get that episode kicking off Season 2, then the rest.  I hate it when they do that, because there's usually an obvious shift in tone and often casting changes between the first and second season of a show.  So now that the show has found its audience and found its feet, they screw it over by cutting the first season short, setting up a drop in audience of about 50%, and then will cancel it because of low ratings.

Got mine this morning.  It was a nice surprise, I guess, but it looks a little weird with a StarCraft ship flying around picking up your gold in Sanctuary.  But it's another pet, so yay!

I always have both feet with me, but I only use one to drive.  But I make up for that by using my hands, too.

It's wasn't that bad.  It really was fun.  This was before she had the whole set and was still playing at T1, so it definitely could have been more hairy.

I've run into a couple Yellow Dudes at once, multiple Champion packs, and various combinations totalling three, but I don't think I've ever stumbled into four Yellow Dudes at once before.  Well, "stumbled" isn't quite the word, as I was Vortexed or Wormholed (I still don't know the difference) into the middle of them.  Very exciting.

But in the end, I was triumphant!  Even leveled somewhere in there.

My Witch Doctor found the Jade chest armor, then gambled the pants, so she finished the set before getting Haedrig's third Gift.  That was cool.  Also got a RoRG from doing Act I Bounties, so she's got some options.
