Diablo (now with Diablo 4 Hype) / Re: Season 24 - Ethereal Memory

found the three barb ethereals by paragon level in the 140s. doombringer dropped at level 7 (misremembered. very early, regardless), rode it into the mid 50s. probably far longer than it was actually good for. the other two are both lvl70, dropped within a few minutes of each other. thanks RNG.

i'll probably go for the new pet (little Kaa!) as per usual and see if i can find a few ethereals. doubt i'll have the patience to find them all. that sounds like having to run a character of each class and that isn't going to happen. i tried dipping my toe in POE after i got tired of the last season of d3. POE did not really grab me and i haven't played it in several weeks.

the tomorrow war; alien x starcraft x terminator, directed by a michael bay copycat and with some annoying political commentary thrown in. interesting premise, terrible script. somehow it still ended up being a net positive.

most of the way through Loki; doesn't disappoint for those that like the MCU.

finished Mare of Easttown; good well acted mystery, though was predictable to a degree.

LePage, who was term-limited from running for reelection in 2018, filed on Thursday to challenge incumbent Gov. Janet Mills (D) in the state’s 2022 gubernatorial election.

heh. didn't maine switch to instant runoff voting for state elections? seems like a stretch for this doofus if so.

Had to check, ATMA drop calc (for 1.13) @0mf for a death lord champion in wsk 3:
Chromatic Ire, 1:313179
Arreat's Face, 1:312844
Windforce, 1:260646

So yes, those two are damn rare at least if you're concentrating on places where anything and everything can drop.

huh. pretty sure i found dozens of chromatic ires and arreats faces and only 1 windforce over a decade of playing, but i generally started new characters rather than run high level areas for item hunting or leveling. still, would not have guessed the numbers above.

My boys are 27, 24, and 20 now. I started playing with the 24 and 20 year old this year. I told the 20 year that I remember running Meph with him on my lap as a baby in the middle of the night, and he would giggle every time Meph's laugh/roar (whatever it was) came out. Then I told him he needs to sit on my lap now and relive the memories. :)

MN state senate leader is threatening a government shutdown if his amendment forgiving fines against businesses that broke covid rules isn't passed. yes, he's a republican.

I tried Speed Demon a few times.  Finish a Torment 10 Rift in two minutes or less.  That's insane.  I think it takes more than two minutes just to physically run through a Nephalem Rift, let alone kill things.  So it looks like I'll go for Avarice again.

speed demon is really just fishing for the right rift and having the willpower not to pick anything up. I'd never gotten this one before this season, but got it after a few tries with my WW barb. probably be quite doable with a number of DH and WD builds as well.

next time you need avarice, strongly recommend leveling boon of the hoarder to 50 and then running cows. then you can burn the gem to check that achievement off the list as well. faster than the cache method, imo. i ticked over 200M doing that (t13 or 16, i can't remember), with no special gear beyond the gem. there are a couple other areas that are good for it too if you haven't managed to get the bovine bardiche, but by the time the achievement becomes important, you'll more than likely have several of those.

i really liked this patch with the follower upgrades. I'd still be playing if stellaris hadn't released new DLC a week after d3 did.

got the J&J vaccine about a month ago. was eligible for a fair bit before then, but there were no appointments to be had unless i wanted to drive 3+ hours upstate. MN did well in making vaccine available in rural areas, but it was like winning the lottery to get an appointment in the twin cities area. had some pretty bad hives a few days after the vaccine. beats a blood clot.

Verdict on Chauven coming in an hour. Everyplace around where I work has plywood up. Here’s hoping it’s not needed.

Someone in SW Mpls called the cops on the armed National Guard personnel. Do I laugh or cry?

another curfew today. they conveniently waited til 4pm to announce it.

another curfew in the twin cities tonight after a cop got mixed up between their taser and their gun yesterday and killed a guy.

Wait, no Stash Tab as a reward this season?  The pets are cool, but I'm usually in it for the Stash Tab.

if you haven't already earned the maximum number of tabs, you can still get another one. i don't remember what the max number of extra tabs is.
