I will start with the DH and switch to necro, starting over is kind of fun actually.

I am still not sure which class to play yet.  I know I'm staying away from the necromancer, and it will most likely be wizard, barb, or monk.  I haven't spent much time on any of those lately, and the Haedrig sets for those are all pretty good.  I will probably decide at the last minute.  I will also play hardcore since I played softcore last season.

Tim and I made a start on EU last night and made level 35 in public games before one of our EU clan mates offered a boost and carried 3 of us to level 70 and through some early achievements. Unfortunately Tim had to hit the hay, but I managed to finish Ch2 and get the first 2 Haedrig’s pieces before heading to bed myself.

Apparently Blizzard figured out that they don't know how to make those "Hey It's a New Season" splash screens work?  I kept waiting for the new season to roll out here in the Americas, finally guessed that maybe there wasn't gonna be a splash screen and went to make a Seasonal character, and yep, the option was there.  So after being hit with those stupid things all last Season, they just didn't do one at all this time.  I guess this is better, although I'd probably have more confidence in a company that can figure out how to make something appear once per client, then not again.  It can't possibly be that hard.  Maybe between the Season and the new Patch, they screwed everything up.

Anyway, after playing my non-Seasonal Lady Necro for a while, I started a Seasonal Necro, a dude this time named Lucius.  Because he looks like Lucius, duh.  :P  Except I didn't realize it was like 1:00 in the morning by time I did this.  Next thing I knew, it was 2:30.  I think he's in the 20's now.  I stopped when I realized I was literally dozing off while playing, so I don't actually remember much.

The Necro is a lot less fun now that they nerfed bone armor. I still like starting fresh, but this necro has
been a little painful to level. seems the DH builds killed a lot faster as you progressed?

I didn't enjoy trying to speed level a Necro through rifts, but did enjoy playing one through campaign.

Anyway, I managed to complete Ch4 last night and a DML dropped in my first GR, so my DH is now in full UE. I just need a Yangs (or CinderCoat or Dawn) to really take it to the next level because Multishot is an expensive skill without a cost reduction bonus or serious Hatred recovery.

So, rolled a DH for my first Season and currently 7/12 in Chapter 4 of the Seasonal Journey. Things haven't been too difficult thus far thanks to some lucky legendary rolls whilst levelling, and currently living like it's 2003 with a Buriza.

Not quite sure where to progress next. The guide reckons T4 Keymasters (whoever they may be) but I'm not sure if she's at the power level to taken on Torment 4 content. We shall see.

You are powerful enough, it may take a bit of time, but you'll definitely win and have your full set soon.  Question: were you the guy at the peak of your D2 playing who was trading for D2 charms but ONLY if they had a certain pattern on them?

Last night I joined Matt and Zebra, we alternated rifts with increasing GRs.  They were both very powerful as the DHs, by the time I got to packs, they were normally dead with my WD.

Later I got invited to a GR65, ended up doing 2 and I'm now paragon 192.  I have the manajuma set.  I managed to sit in during a T13 vault too, we had a geletanious sire in a 3p game which helped! 

Needing more paragon, gems, some BiS gear but getting there!

Last night I got the first gem to 25 and soloed a GR30 at the end of the night.  Just a set dungeon to move forward now. Next D3 will probably be on the weekend.

Yeah, we had a pretty good session and I've had a pretty lucky run so far this season - I've managed to find the Endless Walk set already and CoE which is a big help. Also Dawn and Visage dropped last night so I'm only Yang's, Restraint and a belt any from full BiS. I've also managed to find Karlei, The Shadow quiver and a couple of Shadows piece so getting there on being able to switch to shadow too.

Oh, I also still need to find BotT and Zei's Stone...

But off to a really good stat so far.

Man, sounds like I need to join you guys on the EU server. :D

Of course I'm leaving for Los Angeles on a family vacation this weekend, so it may be awhile before I get much quality time on EU.
