Diablo (now with Diablo 4 Hype) / Re: Season 27

I like Wizards, and the 10 Magic Missiles skill and the 4x Frozen Orbs are both pretty fun.  I made some fun Legacy of Nightmares builds of each.

None of the Barb skills really thrilled me.  Same thing but with more damage.

Demon Hunter Strafe Impale thing is kinda fun, but too similar to the Gears build.  Kinda the same thing but with more damage again.

I haven't tried any of the others yet.

I considered starting a Season 26 thread, but... um... I didn't.  *shrug*

But I've been playing.  Since the Echoing Nightmares thing doesn't really come into play until you're well along in your progression, it wasn't really a thing I worried about.  I went for Guardian first, and discovered that you don't get another Stash page this time.  I don't remember now if there's a logic or pattern to it, or if you just get them sometimes, or if there's a max that I've hit.  But it was mildly disappointing.

The Echoing Nightmares are fun enough with the right build, but it seems like they could've come up with a better way to work it with Hardcore.  Also, I don't do a lot of offline reading up on things (my own fault, I know), so I didn't realize that there's a big chest you get at the end.  The first time, I didn't see the point in respawning at my corpse, since everything was dead, so I just respawned in town and I think I was kinduv underwhelmed by the whole thing and was near my stopping point for the night, so I just exited.  The second time, it occurred to me that there were goodies on the ground, since I usually use Nemesis Bracers on my follower, so there were goodies from the yellow guys who spawn from the pylons.  As I was running around picking them up, I saw the big black chest hiding there in the darkness.  I missed the first one, or maybe two (or three).  But there's a lot of stuff in there, so obviously now that I know, I always click it.  And eventually I learned to click it *after* picking up my loot from the yellow guys, because clicking the chest starts the countdown.

Obviously this was all worked out and I'm sure fully explained online somewhere, but it was amusing to figure out.

It's been a long, strange trip.  Quite long, quite strange.  I can't think of anything else to say except that it's sad.

I haven't figured out the deal with ChinaJaw.  If it's a spam account, it's really bad at it.  If it's a real person, it's also really bad at it.

I thought it was probably a bot, but it was almost coherent, so I thought maybe it was a humanoid.

My Wizard graduated to 70 that night, and I've been pushing her (gently) ever since.  Made T16 last night. 

I was wrong about which helm shard I was using; it was Terror, not Hatred.  The +Int was nice, but Shard of Terror is all about cooldowns, and it just wasn't working out, since Wizards don't have many skills that have long cooldowns.  I was casting skills all the time just so they'd be in cooldown, which only lasted 10 seconds or so.  So once I got two more Embers, I upped a Shard of Hatred.  I'd considered that one mostly for melee characters, since the damage is based on how many monsters are within 25 yards.  But it's working out pretty well.  I cast a Frost Hydra, then go stand on it and the bad guys come to me.  They get frozen, and die shortly thereafter.

Remnant of Pain in her wand is working out nicely, too.  The first one I had gave +Holy damage, but my second one rolled a raw +15% to Damage.  I'm saving the +Holy damage one for a possible Monk.

After a couple of Greater Rifts, I had a banner splash a few times that was too fast for me to read; I finally figured out that I was making the Leaderboards.  I was like 218th for Hardcore Wizards using Typhon's, but hey, I made the boards.  It happens so rarely that I didn't realize what it was telling me.

I gave up on the T16 with LoD.  He was fun, but he seemed to plateau at T13.  Played for a while and got no signficant upgrades, so I switched him to M6 Multi-Shot and ran a T16 shortly after.  Running T16/GR75 for a while, I finally got two more Embers, and upgraded a Shard of Hatred, trying to get +Dexterity.  Got frickin' +Intelligence again.  So now I have two of these things, both with +Intelligence, and no Embers left.  So I started a Wizard.  She's into the 60's slog now.  I'll get back to her after dinner.

After getting four characters up to T16/GR75+, the boredom was setting in, so I went back to my HC Demon Hunter.  I had gotten him up to T10/GR45 for the Conquest, but now I'm trying to get that same build (LoD, no sets) up to T16/GR75.  Scary.  Even the concept of pushing is different in HC.  Don't push too hard!

So he's T11 now, and after a few hours of no significant equipment upgrades (but a bunch of Paragon points), I'm maybe ready for T12.  Easy does it.

Wow, congrats!

Um, what is "the Act 2 chest routine"?

Inspired by this thread, I just ran a GR 100 with my Monk.  Tomorrow I'll have to decide on a new character.

Whoa, nice job!  I might fire up another HC character.  Still trying to get my first GR 100 in softcore.  I build them up to around 75 or 80, then I'm bored and start another character.
