Double Goblins!
« on: November 06, 2017, 12:19:38 PM »
I wasn't sure what they meant by double treasure goblins, but basically, they show up in pairs.  Where you might have a Gem Hoarder, there are two.  Or two Insufferable Miscreants, or two regular Treasure Goblins, etc.  I thought maybe they'd be twice as likely to show up or something like that, but this is cool, too.

Typical Blizzard half-assing it, though.  It always makes me chuckle, but inwardly weep.  You get two messages saying "<name> has engaged a Treasure Goblin" and no messages at all when you kill them.

Starts tonight and ends Thursday, 5:00 PDT for each.  New season starts right after, at 5:00 PDT on Thursday.

That's what I thought, too, but I ran a couple of rifts this morning and ran into pairs three or four times, and no singles.

Now that I think about it, I was on Asia.  They're like half a day ahead of Americas or something aren't they?

Logged on right at 8:00 est when the double gobs started and decided to run bounties as gob rates are better in bounties than rifts. Before long I had 3 people join and we had mega fun. Lot's of double blue gobs which just packed the inventory and a few rainbow gobs which did the same. There were multiple times when I had to come back to town because my inventory was full of legendary items. Full.

To top it all off, my crafting mats went through the roof. I'm guessing I bumped up around 5,000 death breaths just last night and went from a low in bounty mats of 5 to nearly 300. It was fun. More tonight!

Argh!  I'm still trying to get my DH on the Asia server fully geared (he has 4 Marauder pieces so far), and he found a pair of Gelatinous Sires in a dead-end.  Like shooting fish in a barrel, I'm already thinking about sifting through piles of loot.  Killed the two Sires, then things froze up, then I lost network connection.  Shit!  Also, it was on my 4th bounty out of 5.  Grrr.

I noticed that they fixed the messages, so it now says that you've killed them, so at least there's that. :P

I found the ongoing lag and disconnects on Asia too bad to bother. Vault was impossible, it just rubber banded me to death.

Had another very productive day today with Bob and Ray and another fella running bounties. I'm up to mid 500's in bounty mats.

I filled up my Americas account, because I have one Hardcore character of each class and I can't seem to let them go, so I can only have one of each class in Softcore.  I started on Europe, but then "gave" that to Mrs. Orbert when she started playing, so I checked out Asia.  It was bad for a while, so I stopped, but recently it's been a lot better, so I thought I was okay.  It does take some serious lag spikes sometimes, though, which is annoying, but dammit, I got him to 70 and before I knew it, I had two set pieces and now have four.  I'm hopeless.  I have to see him through now.

Although realistically, now that Mrs. Orbert has her own account, I can reclaim the slots on Europe.  Usually don't get lag there.
