Finds for the week so far: Steel Carapace (sadly not ethereal), 2x Wizardspike, Windhammer, Shadowkiller, a +1 Passive and Magic Skills (Amazon)/+38 Life Grand Charm, and a +2 Traps, All Resists +19, +22% MF, +35 Life, 22 Teleport charges Amulet.  Also finally found an Immortal King's Will even though I'd found everything else of the set except the Armor before it, so I respec-ed my Frenzybarb to a WW/Concentrate build using the set and the Steel Carapace for great defense (although still mediocre resists right now).  Been mostly MF-ing with my Sorc in the Ancient Tunnels and killing Hell Andariel looking for jewelry, since I still haven't found any unique ring above a Manald's, so Cannot Be Frozen stuff has been hard to find (been mostly using upped-Hawkmails on my melee characters).

I think D2 is telling my Sorc to move on from farming Act 1/2 Hell stuff.  She got a 149/33/10 Gheed's from Duriel, then my first Griswold's Redemption from a unique blood lord pack in Durance lvl 3, another Ohm from one of the Council minions, and a Baranar's Star from Mephisto.  Looks like the River of Flame/Chaos Sanctuary is going to be a problem though, since Abyss Knights are lightning immune and have a ridiculous amount of health for my Blizzard to chew through without me or my merc dying (or getting bored from dodging their shots for 2-3 minutes).  I suppose I could respec if it gets too annoying.

Edit - Did about 10 more Meph runs.  Got several neat things, like a Thundergod's Vigor and a Naj's Puzzler.  The last one I did netted an Azurewrath (267% ED, +10 attributes, lvl 10 aura).  I didn't even know Mephisto could drop it, and I've never seen a Lightsabre either.  Of course, I don't have any lvl 85 characters yet (Sorc is 84, Paladin 83), so it's just sitting there, but it seems pretty rare.

More drops this week: Giant Skull from the Ancient Tunnels (+258 defense, 2 sockets, +27 STR), Ethereal 4 socket Dusk Shroud, regular 3 and 4 socket Dusk Shrouds, 4 socket Archon Plate, and a Djinn Slayer.  Still not sure how I've found a Giant Skull and a Crown of Ages before finding any other Exceptional or Elite Unique helm (besides one Peasant Crown).  Also my Paladin found a 2 socket Crown Shield pretty early on, which was great for a Rhyme, but I hadn't found a 2 socket paladin shield with decent resists with ANY character until I found one with +32 resist with no sockets that I luckily rolled 2 sockets with the cube, so now it can be a "better" Rhyme.

The only time the uber bosses in BL were fun for me was when I was with a friend that had been given a bugged shield with basically infinite regen, so they could stay alive while the rest of us died over and over.  We did this on Crawmerax in BL1 over and over just to see the 500+ items drop so we could spend 20+ minutes combing the field for cool stuff.  Never found a group to get through any of them in BL2.  No matter what gear I found I always died in 2 hits.

Been doing more Mausoleum runs to get the Hell gear I need.  Found an Ohm rune, the only "high end" rune I've found so far, but then took a break to get some other characters up to where they could maybe do the runs faster than my Pally.  Brought my Lightning Sorc into Hell to do Mausoleum runs (granted, she's using Blizzard for that since everything there is lightning-immune), and on her 2nd run she gets a near-perfect Crown of Ages (2 sockets, all resist +29, damage reduced by 15%), which I think is my first TC87 unique.  My Pally (or Barb) should find Hell much easier now.

Been trying to farm gear to survive gear with at least one character going into D2 Hell again (who can then farm for everyone else).  Had a Mace Frenzybarb kill NM Diablo and get a near-perfect Serpentskin Armor (35 resist, 12 MDR), and then when going through the Bloody Foothills had a group of 3 champion Demon Imps that dropped a Repeating Crossbow, Gothic Axe, and War Maul.  Not all super useful but pretty cool to see 3 uniques from the same champion pack.  Put the armor on my lightning Sorc, did a NM Baal run with her and a Seraph's Hymn dropped (a first for me).

I wonder if D2 is trying to tell me something this time around.  The first exceptional unique I found was a Fleshrender, and the first elite unique I found was a Fleshripper.  It does feel kinda weird having a Paladin Zealing with a Dagger, but hey, whatever it takes to survive. 

Excited for Yakuza Kiwami 2 next week.

It's been a while since I've felt that nervousness of going into Nightmare with possibly subpar gear.  Thankfully most of my mediocre gear has MF on it, so I'm finding some decent stuff early in NM, like a Ribcracker (guess I need to play a Druid now).  It's kinda fun starting from scratch, it makes every find precious (well... almost).

I did a thing yesterday... I reinstalled D2 :o. Hadn't played in 8-9 years, surprised to find my CD keys still worked, able to register it and download a newer version that works pretty well.  Started a Freezeadin, first unique I found was a Manald Heal, which was quite nice.  Found 4 Breast Plates, 5 Full Helms and 3 Broad Swords so far, farming Baal for Nightmare gear.  Feels like old times.

I'd collect breast plates with her, if you know what I mean. 

:o ;D  ::) 

With the release of the Starcraft remaster came an updated rerelease of the original for FREE, so if a D2 remaster comes with the same, I'll all for it.

I never really minded the loot grind that much in BL1 or 2, being used to it from D2 after all.  The areas just aren't that interesting for the most part, and I genuinely hated where the story went for the last half of BL2 (partly because I mained Roland in BL1).  I've beaten BL2 twice but never stuck with it long enough to finish a 2nd playthrough to get to the level cap.

Not sure what I want to play now.  Been trying to find a group to fight the Behemoth crossover in Monster Hunter World, but every group seems to die insanely fast, even with me doing nothing but healing (been running a Light Bowgun with max level Wide-Range so my potions work on everyone).  SFV final yesterday at EVO was insanely good, with Problem X from the UK winning with Bison (against Tokido), making him only the 2nd UKer to win EVO in any game (last one in 2008), and they announced that the last 2 characters from this season, G and Sagat, would be released today.  Of course, that release comes with a hefty 13.4GB patch which is taking forever to download.

I've been off and on playing the original Decipher Star Wars CCG for 21 years or so (I'm even in the middle of creating a card for the community to use), so I've never been tempted to pick up Hearthstone (or any other CCG) despite how popular it is.

Mr. World Record Holder notice me senpai ;).  I bet the culture of speedrunning has changed a whole bunch since then.  Now everyone wants to get a world record in something, so it's kinda surprising no one has taken it from you yet.

This is a fun read just for the names :D.  Congrats!

After finishing Bloodborne again, I realized that I had never once built a character to use the Moonlight Greatsword in any souls game, even though I've beaten all of them 4+ times (they tend to need high strength and magic/arcane which is just not a combo I've done).  So I started a new character and rushed to Ludwig as fast as I could.  Yep, it was worth it, if only for the transform animation.

Only thing I'm debating is whether or not I want to deal with the Defiled Chalice again in order to get to the last dungeon to farm for the best gems and runes.  As cool as the sword is, it doesn't save me from being one-shot by almost everything in there.
