annoying for people that prefer solo play, but it's MUCH easier to get the speed goals in public games. play a few and you'll probably get the 5 minute goal by accident.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

If it makes you feel better, it was only a Primal Sacred Harvester with perfect stats. No biggie...

That's so mean, Ray. You're a meanie lol. Don't worry, Orbert. It was probably just a perfect primal Uhkapian Serpent. No biggie...

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.

Hallelujah! I think I'm the only one carrying the banner at this point. It's lonely in Tristram!  ;)

I mainly just log in now to complete the Challenge Rift. Interest is quickly fading away, unfortunately :(
