Down to 30 items remaining with PlugY characters.  Still need the Gris weapon for the final set item.  Found a Gull dagger and Lenymo sash the other day doing Baal runs.

Diablo 3 / Re: Patch 2.6.5

After playing this game so long I should know this, but I don't. If a skill doesn't list a elemental (fire, cold, lightning etc.)
effect should you assume it's physical damage? I am playing a new HC barb and using seismic slam but only one of the
runes lists cold as an elemental effect, so the other four runes are physical? Thanks.
For seismic slam, the un-runed skill damage is physical.  Stagger rune = Lightning, Shattered Ground = Fire, Rumble = Physical, Strength from the Earth = Physical, Permafrost = Cold.

Are you the type of person who cares what the visual is?  Do you want the super low strength requirement? they seem to be some of the key questions.  Archon Plate is best though I think, good defence, not too heavy
Don't care about visual.  I think Archon Plate is best too.  I'll probably wind up making it soon.  I cubed the runes the other day and they are just sitting in the stash.

UVHM is very unkind.  I haven't gotten Gaige past 53, very tough.  Getting some levels is the trick but you might want to check out gearbox forums.  Very nice place actually, and they could give you better tips about Gaige than I can.

Oh man, I loved Edith Finch. What an amazing experience. Right up there with Gone Home.

Played through What Remains of Edith Finch, which was free on PS+ last month (or the month before?).  Interesting game, or rather "interactive story".  At least there are no fail states, so what little gameplay there is doesn't distract from the story.  Very somber tone overall though, and not every mini-story was explained very well so the impact wasn't as strong as it could've been (or maybe I missed some details).  Not sure if it would be a great game to play when dealing with family tragedy or a terrible one.

I thought you were saying people are playing the game on their own systems.


Yes this. 

Having a temporary dev build to build hype, or getting some people  a preview is standard stuff.  But if you don't physically go to a conference, or you aren't an influencer, then you can't play the game yet.  What they are doing might not even exist in the release build.

I finally hit 50 for the first time with any character - playing as Gaige. I started in on UVHM and the new DLC, and promptly got my ass handed to me. I couldn't keep my anarchy stacks up, because I would get 1-2 shot by pretty much anything...and couldn't kill anything fast enough to progress. My main weapons are a slag Fibber, a single shot Jackob's shotgun, and a KerBlaster.

I decided to go through the Torgue DLC, in hopes of getting an Unkempt Harold. It was progressive decently, and then I had to fight the blimp on top of that frigging tower. I ended up rage quitting last night after getting killed about 25 times on the way up the tower, and on top of the tower.

I'm tempted to switch to a different character - using the boosted level 30 character will be a big help with this. It's just frustrating that TVHM was going smoothly, and now I'm getting completely obliterated in UVHM.
