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.

I guess that it couldn't be bottered with this thread.

I like the attempt, but don't quit your day job!  ;)

Well I finished the campaign with my WD.  She is now level seventy working on completing Chapter 2.

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.

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.



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




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.

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.

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.

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.
