Title: Season 14 - The Season of Greed
Post by: Ray Patean on June 15, 2018, 08:31:30 AM
So, it's the start of a new season. Anyone going to play?

The themed seasons could be pretty cool going forward - there's some decent potential for cool ideas, but let's see how Blizzard implements them.

I may play do some casual HC this season. Probably a Crusader.

Chasing goblins around is not my cup of tea.

Unless you are OP compared to the little shits I find it tedious.  And I always end up with too much gold anyway.  Of course I never bothered spending gold on rifts.

If you guys are thinking about playing season 14 keep in mind the challenge rift this week is very easy, good way to start a season.

Thanks for the heads-up!  I rarely do the challenge rift.  Actually, I think I've only ever done it when someone mentions that it's easy, otherwise it's usually a waste of time for me.  It takes me a long time to get good enough at any given build to suddenly jump in a run a rift with one and beat someone else's time.

Anyway, I'm playing a Demon Hunter on Americas and a Wizard on Europe.  Good old M6 is running T9 already.  Wizard's just getting started.  My favorite part of the game is building up the character, so I'm a sucker for seasons.

Ah!  I haven't been looking. :(  I guess I kinda figured that the "Mine" thing had run its course.  If I added more, I'd have to shrink them down or something.

Double gob hunting is fun!

The goblins have made this season tolerable because it starts you with so many materials. Other than that, D3 needs an upgrade badly.

I'm still trying builds I've never seriously tried before, so I'm still finding new things to do and try.  But I understand if a lot of guys have pretty much done everything with the game that they're going to do.  It's still a finite amount of content; everyone's eventually going to get to their point.  The only solution to that is for Blizzard to literally keep putting out new content for free (which is not really a good business model) or move on to like Diablo IV or something else.

I saw some things in Facebook memories that it was TEN years ago blizzard first put out the teaser then told us they were working on D3.  Wonder if its another 5-10 before they tease the next is coming.

Got two Menagerist Gobs at the same time on my seasonal toon on the European server. Dropped Humbart and the Stomach, pretty cool.

The double goblin thing has been great sometimes, and sometimes really frustrating.  When I have a character that's working it's way up, killing a goblin can often be quite a challenge in the first place, and it doesn't help that they often seem to show up around the same time as an elite pack.  Double goblins in those cases usually just leave me pissed off because two of them get away, not just one.

On the other hand, once I've gotten someone to T13 and am running rifts at T12 just to collect GR tokens, I love it.  I cornered a pair of blue guys at the end of a tunnel, killed both, then all four, then all eight, then all 16.  The amount of loot was insane!

Bring on them Primals!

Bob the Demon Hunter was doing alright with his M6 gear, but it was getting pretty rough past GR 60.  By 65 it was a genuine struggle, and it just plain wasn't any fun anymore at 67.

Then I noticed that he'd managed to collect a full UE set, complete with Ancient Yang's and DML.  I like M6 for filling the screen with projectiles and death, but UE is more funner more faster, so I switched.

Or tried to.  Turns out I had two sets of boots and no helm.  :(  Oops.  I'd also just spent most of my Blood Shards gambling for a better Amulet, and only had 56 Shards left, but I figured what the hell, might as well give it a shot.  Worst that could happen is I keep hammering at M6 until I can gamble or find a UE helm.

First one was yellow, second was the UE helm!  Okay, I'm in business.  Saved the build (I don't actually use the Armory that much, but this seemed like the type of thing it was made for) and switched out the gear.  Tweaked a few things at Myriam's, and less than an hour later I'd run a GR 70.  Never done that in a Season before.

Bring on them Primals!

Wow, remember when Britney Spears was hot?  Actually, she's still pretty hot.  She went kinda psycho for a while there, and I rarely find psychosis attractive, but she's back, and I really can't complain.

as long as you don't have to listen to her sing she's pretty good.

Bob the Demon Hunter made Conqueror tonight.  Stash Space!

Not that I really use it all during non-Season anyway, but it's nice to have.  It's good to have goals.  Even better to achieve them!

It would seem so.

Honestly, I'd rather talk about hot babes than a video game, but considering the thread and all, I kinda felt like I should at least try to stick to the topic (especially since I'm the only one giving updates these days).

We had our second child in July which has been taking up a lot of my time, that and I leveled a character to 20 in the WoW free trial to earn a Hearthstone reward.... Anyway, I started playing last week and got a boost to level 70 and now I'm just working my way through the Season Journey...
