Diablo (now with Diablo 4 Hype) / Re: Season 26 Huh?

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. 

there's a max for the stash tabs which i'm sure you've hit by now. for those that have played most seasons, the max was done a long time ago.

not sure how they could fix the echoing nightmares for HC. I initially thought they should be like the set dungeons where a death doesn't count, even in HC. but the gem/xp rewards for the nightmares are ridiculous. you could zerg your way through a few and really rack up the rewards, whereas the set dungeons are really just another achievement and not much more. i think they did it right.

edit: maybe simply nerf the reward if you die, but not have the death be permanent if you do. dunno.

i played to get guardian. the echoing nightmare is interesting and sure makes getting high gems to enhance gear easier, though they are a bit scary for HC. have to plan to get overwhelmed before it becomes too much, since a death there is real. i like the reworked raekor set for barb. had been planning to push it farther, but haven't felt much motivation since finishing guardian.

I've Mat'd my sorc.  She is now my official Key farmer.

With my first set of keys I had my Smiter try and get a torch.



Getting to Tristram was not too bad.  Surviving Meph was an impossibility.  Holy crap did he wreck me so quickly.

Lesson learnt. I have respec'd my Pally to get my lightning resist even higher.  Without T-Gods it is now 84%.  I will wear T'Gods, start with Salvation as my aura.  I might it make a simple Treachery to proc Fade. time I will also wear Ravenfrost.  I forgot to equip that and killing Duriel and Izual was slower than it should have been.

tgods plus maxing ltng res will make a world of difference. i think mine's 90, plus the absorb from tgods. the life bulb still bounces around if you don't have life tap up. triggering fade and switching armors is annoying, but it can help a lot. nice hidden DR there as well. i think i wore treachery the first time, but didn't use it last time. i don't think ravenfrost will help with duriel- it doesn't work against HF aura, does it?

i had a much harder time with lilith than meph this last time. got her down to a point and then couldn't make a dent in her HP. got to an angle where she didn't insta-kill my merc and once he triggered decrepify it went really fast. i was nervous i'd be toast without life tap up, but it worked out. probably won't work next time...

edit: i've also started a sorc with the goal of being a key farmer. not sure if i'll ever get her there. my pally is decent at it but it takes a while. i also get distracted and kill most things on the way. considering that's how i happened upon my Lo rune, i probably won't change that.

I have been mainly running ancients and LK in a bid to get my character up to level 90.  Which I achieved, first time I have crossed that mark.  I am closing in on 60% mark on the grail.  Despite all the running of LK and Ancients I only picked up one MAL.  I had a couple interesting drops.

One of those interesting drops is an Eth Archon Plate with three sockets.  Right now I am debating between Treachery or Duress for that.

i've periodically wished i'd made duress rather than treachery, for the crushing blow. if you have another source for that, i'd lean towards treachery.

anyone that's watched ted lasso season two will love this. very spoilery if you haven't.

fyi, ted lasso is about as far from batman as you can get, so don't expect that from this fake trailer LOL

I can't believe it's not the entire book! Bummer! Boy, I'm going to whine and complain and threaten to not see the movie before the 2nd part is released as loudly as I can until the first chance I have to see part 1.

LOL yes. i guess villaneuve is working on the script for the sequel but that's as far along as it is.

can't wait for this, but not watching that clip. did i hear correctly that the movie's only the first ~2/3 of the book? not sure what a satisfying stopping point would be if that's the case.

Might or might not make the cutoff for next Thursday.

is the season ending, or is that just when D2R comes out?

got 2 eths left to find. stupid freaking battle cestus is elusive. my monk's found 2 necro AND 2 crusader ethereals and multiple talons and bartucs, but not the stupid cestus.  got all the necro ethereals without having to play a necro, and 2 of the 3 crusader ethereals the same way. almost there...

edit: i complain and it drops (after another talon and bartucs). khalim's will left.

i liked all three of them but yes, the first was definitely the best. i don't have much in the way of expectations for this one. trailer looks good though.

Problem is that I don't have Apple TV.

it's not that expensive and i think they generally have a low cost trial as well. not sure, my wife was the one that got it.  ;D

could get it for a month and then cancel, but if this show follows their others it'll be weekly release so wait until the season is over if you want to binge it. they do have a few other shows that are worth watching as well.
