Title: Season 13
Post by: Sssith on February 14, 2018, 10:09:57 AM
So this might be a bit premature.

But I am curious as to the set rewards for next season.  At this early stage I am thinking of playing a HC Witch Doctor.  That would mean that if I am successful I would earn Jade Harvester.  The little I have read is giving me the impression that is not a great set for HC.

The reason I am leaning toward Witch Doctor is that I have very little time playing as one.  The other class that I don't have a lot of experience with is the Barb.  So that is another possibility.

At this point I have no interest in playing Crusader, Monk, Wizard.  The first two I have a lot of time on, while the Wizard I did not enjoy so much.

I am sure you know this info but for completeness sake...here are the rewards:
Barb: Might of the Earth
Wizard: Firebird
DH: The Shadow's Mantle
WD: Jade Harvester
Monk: Monkey King
Crusader: Invoker
Necro: Grace of Inarius

I played a lot of hardcore Jade witch doctor last season and really liked it.  I did a GR84 with it, so it can work in hardcore!  Witch Doctors have lots of good builds too.  The Helltooth gargantuan build is durable and super easy to play as well.  Go for it!

I am going to play a hardcore Monk.  I like the Sunwuko set and I really haven't spent much time on a Monk for awhile.

The Shadow DH looks like a good bet I'd think.

I am going to stick to nonseason SC though.   :)

I've played a monk and DH a lot and the two sets they are giving are the most powerful for each and really easy to
play. I generally start with a build I'm familiar with to use it for farming my other builds.

I have to say that I find the monk to be a bit squishy.  I am currently running Monkey King in SC and I am dying a bit too much right now. Of course when I am in SC I tend to push the envelope to hard.

I think I need to get a good unity ring on me and my follower.

I'm going with a monk on EU and America, and on Asia when I need a distraction. After that I'll use the ancient dex stuff to gear up a DH.

I still need to spend some quality time with the necro to find a build I enjoy, but that will have to be later in the season.

Why would you do the same character on all three regions? It is not like you can share the gear across them.

Quickest to GR70 for me, so I'll unlock ancients faster.

What are the best strategies for quickly getting that first toon to 70 in seasons? Leorics crown? Challenge rift rewards? Time invested? I see so many
players that seem to have a toon at paragon 3-400 just 24 hours after the season starts.

I think a lot of those people play in 4 person groups, and play non-stop for practically the whole day.  We aren't them, so don't try to compete with that.  I usually just start on Hard difficulty and do rifts.  Bounties with cursed chests that have the "kill 100 monsters in xx time" are good too because you can get massacre bonuses.  If you find a leorics crown, wear it and put a ruby in it.  I try to get the cube pretty quickly too in order to extract legendary powers as soon as I can.   Lastly, get the challenge rift reward tonight after the season starts.   Right after I make a character tonight, I will do the challenge rift.  That will start me with a bunch of gold and crafting materials to start the season.  There are a few guides on youtube that describe how to optimize leveling and all that, but I don't get that into it.

Don't forget to save any legendaries with useful properties that can be extracted later on so that you can use them in the cube ASAP.

Completing some full act bounties for the caches is good around level 21, since that's when the Cain and Born sets can drop. Those kick up your XP quickly, which is always good.

I was able play right away on the Europe servers.  I can't believe how quickly people where achieving the challenge goals.  A couple hours after the Season started someone achieved GR 45 Solo no sets.  WTH!  Then about an hour later a group of four had some other crazy ass achievement.

Meanwhile I have a Europe DH that is somewhere near lvl 30 and a US that I am actually doing the campaign with that is closing in on lvl 30.   Both are hard core.

At least this thread wasn't invaded by the idiot botter.

I'm closing in on getting the final 2 pieces of the Haedrig's gift for my monk.  I only need to do the GR20 solo, and I should get that later today.  Then it's time for item hunting to round out the build.  Having fun so far.

Mrs. Orbert and I were out of town over the weekend, but got back Sunday, and by Sunday evening it was time for some D3 Multi.

Something we've never done before was start Seasonal characters at the same time and play them MP.  After reviewing the Season 13 news stuff, most importantly what Sets were being given out this time, she decided on Crusader, and I picked a Witch Doctor.  This was another change-up for us, since she typically prefers ranged characters.  Most recently, she's played a DH and a Wizard, so I joined her with my Barb and played the tank for her.

I was used to being the tank and running forward into the fray and attacking stuff, so I had to keep reminding myself to let her Crusader tank and I provide support via Haunt and Grasp of the Dead and stuff.  She kept dying, which was annoying, and eventually I figured out that it's not the characters/roles; it's that she's just not as good at D3 as I am.  No surprise, since she's only been at it a few months.  Her reflexes aren't as good, her ability to manage multiple skills and all that is just lower.  So fine, we resumed our "regular" roles of me charging forward and attacking things, and she learned how to play a Crusader.

One thing I found rather interesting was that we started off leveling at exactly the same time (makes sense as all XP was evenly split), but when she died and I kept killing, I'd of course get ahead of her.  I never got more than 1 level higher than her, though, and after resurrecting, she'd be back and soon we were in sync again.  The game kept distributing XP such that she would catch up with me within a level or so.

Playing at Torment I, we got to Level 26 in a few hours, and I was ready to crash.  Had to work Monday morning.  She played solo a while, which is fine.  I told her to play around with the skills, figure out which ones she likes best and all that.  She likes the horses.  What is it with women and horses?  I think all women like horses.  Anyway, I played my Witch Doctor solo last night and got her to Level 70 and beyond.  I think she's got 20 Paragon points or so.  Hopefully I'll finish Chapter 2 tonight and start getting some fun gear.
Title: Re: Season 13
Post by: Orbert on March 02, 2018, 08:08:33 AM
I've run into a couple Yellow Dudes at once, multiple Champion packs, and various combinations totalling three, but I don't think I've ever stumbled into four Yellow Dudes at once before.  Well, "stumbled" isn't quite the word, as I was Vortexed or Wormholed (I still don't know the difference) into the middle of them.  Very exciting.

(https://imgur.com/wxYz9sp.jpg)

But in the end, I was triumphant!  Even leveled somewhere in there.

(https://imgur.com/Ynx3S6C.jpg)


My Witch Doctor found the Jade chest armor, then gambled the pants, so she finished the set before getting Haedrig's third Gift.  That was cool.  Also got a RoRG from doing Act I Bounties, so she's got some options.

I'm back from a long break playing D3 on EU and also playing Hearthstone on Us.

Started a Seasonal DH and grinding to 70 at the moment. I haven't managed to hook up with any MP games so Solo so far and sitting on level 37 IIRC...

Ah Orbert...the best of times and the worst of times.  At least you took the time to take a picture...it couldn't have been that bad?! amirite?!

I  completed chapter 4 with my WD...moving well at this point.  This set doesn't feel that powerful yet.  I imagine I have some growth to go in my understanding of the build.  Just switched to the pirahnas.  Very dependent on the cool down mechanism which I feel that I don't fully get yet.  Working on it.
Title: Re: Season 13
Post by: Orbert on March 04, 2018, 07:56:57 PM
It's wasn't that bad.  It really was fun.  This was before she had the whole set and was still playing at T1, so it definitely could have been more hairy.

I found the WD to be very powerful in the early part of the season. The two and four piece set bonuses are great - high damage from Haunt, and then move speed, armor, life and mana regen from Soul Harvest.

I'm moving along this season. My play time is extremely limited now, but I've cleared a GR50. I'm still one-shotting Rift Guardians with Soul Harvest once they're hit with Haunt, Locust Swarm and Piranhas. I really don't think I'll get much time in this season. I'll try to hit GR70, just for fun, and then probably go to non-season just to get some paragons.

Anyone else think that the new teddy bear pet is a lazy ass piece of shit that doesn't pick up the gold?

Holy cow I had to double back a ton to get gold.  I switched back to the skull.

Also I cruising around T7 P170. 

I have to say that I love having fetishes running rampant on my side.  Those little shits used to Terrorize me.
Title: Re: Season 13
Post by: mn4nu on March 08, 2018, 12:24:50 PM
I was able to do a GR75 with my Sunwuko Wave of Light Monk, but the build is pretty squishy.  Almost too squishy for hardcore for my taste.  I've had Near Death Experience pop a few too many times for me to be comfortable with it.  Damage is not a problem though.  This could be a great speed running build.

I think I'm going to take a little break and play my son's account a bit.  I got him the game a couple years ago, but he doesn't really play it since we don't have a computer for him to use.  I told him I would play a seasonal character on it with the goal to get the stash tab.  I've got a DH up to lvl 31 now, so I think I will continue on that account for awhile.
Title: Re: Season 13
Post by: Sssith on March 09, 2018, 09:52:37 AM
I also found Sunwuko to be squishy.  Anything that explodes will kill me if I don't get out of the way.  This is, thankfully, my SC monk.

Post by: Supermatt on March 10, 2018, 01:39:12 AM
I slogged as far as level 66 solo at which point I managed to grab a boost from Nick to get me past the 70 mark and score a couple of keys. I appear to be able to solo T1/GR10 so far so will mine DBs and run the odd GR to keep improving my gear.

Playing DH as having tried everything else I can say with absolute certainty its my favourite class.
Title: Re: Season 13
Post by: Supermatt on March 14, 2018, 06:38:15 PM
Wow. I'd forgotten how good the 2-piece set bonus for the Shadow set is. I was able to run T4 with just the 2-piece and have not managed 6-piece without even completing Ch4 as I found a piece and gambled a piece to complete the set.

Up to Gr44 now and I really need to find a level 70 quiver as I have a low level one cubed and now can't use Dawn in the cube until I find a quiver to wear. Also missing Karlei's, but finding BiS Belt and Quiver feel far more important right now for mobility and Vengeance up-time.
Title: Re: Season 13
Post by: Ray Patean on March 15, 2018, 12:39:54 PM
Karlei's is super easy to find. DH's only have 2 possible options when upgrading daggers in the cube - Karlei's and Lord Greenstone's. 50% to get BiS weapon is as good as it gets.

I didn't realise DHs could only roll 2 daggers. I managed to find the quiver, gamble belt and upgrade rare for a Karlei, so just missing the jewellry now. Up to GR 55 without BiS jewellry songoong pretty well.

There has been a bug since one of the recent patches. The result has been public
games were inadvertently capped at 2 players.  I don't know whether they
managed to fix it.

Decided to get the Necro pack and start a seasonal Necro character. Been doing things my own way build wise but, as I'm onto chapter 4 of the seasonal journey things are slowly morphing into an Inarus build.

Overall I'm finding the Necro to be fun.

Been playing on the Euro server exclusively lately. I didn't know you have to completely start over, but I'm having fun.
I've noticed that the General community seems a lot more civil in their discussions than on the North American server.
I was getting sick of people asking innocent questions and getting the standard "go screw your mother answer" on the
North America discussions. I do miss seeing our GO members progress. I formed a GOE clan on the euro server just in
case someone needs something like a power level or assistance with a conquest.

Title: Re: Season 13
Post by: mn4nu on March 20, 2018, 07:31:42 AM
I think I'm done with seasonal play.  I finished up Conqueror for my Monk, and only need 3 things to get Guardian, but frankly I don't really have any desire to do it.  I wound up getting the stash tab for my son's account in about a week.  I plan to keep doing that in future seasons until I get the max of 4 you can get that way.

Really, the only thing that interests me right now is finding the cosmic wings.  They are so hard to find though that it is somewhat discouraging, and it gets old fast.  I will probably level up gems (non-season) in between goblin hunting runs to keep it fresh.

I'll still try the challenge rifts too.  The last few have really been tough.

I suspect my stumbling block will be Champion, as mastering set dungeons is a ballache. I don't know if I have the time or the enthusiasm for that, or to do any of the grind to go beyond it.

But, I'll see.

Oh, that's a relief.

The last season I did, which was over a year ago now, took me quite a few attempts to succeed at the set challenge for the Monk I was playing. I remember banging my head against the wall at frustration at the set challenges for the Barbarian.

Inarius set dungeon was a doddle. Completed and mastered in a single go.  Slayer complete, working through the next one, Champion? now, which is simply a matter of attrition.

I rather like the Inarius Bone Armour build I'm using. A magical version of a WW barb in many respects, with an occasional massive burst damage, then back to running around and bone whirlwind  things to death.
Title: Re: Season 13
Post by: Orbert on April 13, 2018, 10:43:24 AM
I finally mastered the Jade Set Dungeon.  Yeah yeah, I know, everybody says it's one of the easiest ones.  The problem is that I just don't like Locust Swarm and thus have never really learned to use it.  I caved and consulted some online guides.  Eventually I turned a pretty bad failure into a victory so go me.

Ran a GR 75 for the Conquest, which was cool, so now I'm on whatever level they call it where you can get the Stash Tab.  Haven't gotten that far in a while, mostly because I hate Set Dungeons, but hey I was bored.  I need to finish a T13 rift in five minutes and finish a second Conquest.  Egads.  I'm thinking I can eventually get the T13 Rift, and for the second Conquest, I was thinking of the one where you kill 350 enemies in a Cursed Chest event, but I don't remember now if there's a difficulty requirement.  That may be an issue.  But there's no way I'm mastering eight Set Dungeons, so there aren't a lot of options at this point.

Post by: Ray Patean on April 13, 2018, 11:20:16 AM
Doing a GR45 with no set items Conquest is very easy for the Witch Doctor. I think I used gargs, and items to boost pet damage (Taskers, Mask of Jeram, Small Man's Finger), and the Ring of Emptiness. Haunt and Locust swarm the mobs, use Piranado to group them up, and let the Gargs wipe them up.

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.
Title: Re: Season 13
Post by: syn on April 16, 2018, 06:45:46 AM
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.

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.

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...
