Diablo 3 / Re: Season 14 - The Season of Greed

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.

That's pretty nuts.  The girl almost looks like she could be cute if not making an angry face, though.

Got it.  I figured it was a joke, but wondered how Sam figured into it.

Well, I like cookies, but I'm still massively confused, and I'm stone cold sober.  Maybe that's the problem.  But if someone from here is into 14-year-old girls, then I guess I'm okay with him getting shot by her mother.

I guess I'm missing something.  Who is Sammy?

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.

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.

Uh... thanks?   ;D

Anyway, most of you probably already got an email, but I just got one from Blizzard announcing that Season 13 will end on June 3. 

Actually, the email itself was to remind everyone to get the new pet, Blaine's Bear, who looks just like the other teddy bear except with different colors/markings.  But he's pretty cool.  I think it's hilarious watching the teddy bears running to keep up with you on their short little legs.

Qrbert - the five min T-13 rift is more about the monster density, If you get a crowded rift it's real easy.

So it would seem!  I had a rift in Briarthorn Cemetary, wall-to-wall Elites, wearing Nemesis Bracers and all my equipment tuned for Damage over Toughness, and I was getting used to not picking things up, even Shineys.  I did pick up a few, when they happened to drop right where I was going to click to move anyway, but apparently I still finished in time because I visited Orek and got the Achievement and notification.  Finally!

Then I snapped out of my daze and ran back into the rift to see how much I could pick up in the seconds that remained.  Piles of Death's Breaths, a couple more Shineys, and just as 2 seconds remained, I clicked on a Resplendent Chest.  I heard "Zinggg!" as an orange star appeared on my mini-map, then I was suddenly back in town.  Damn!  I'll never know what it was.  That's what bugs me the most, not knowing.

Oh well, Nicole the Witch Doctor is now a Conqueror.

I ran a GR 45 without any Set Items, got the Conquest (first try!), so now I have to get the five-minute T13 Rift.  Blew through one as fast as I could, didn't stop to pick anything up, but since it was a Nephalem Rift, it wasn't really "over" once I'd killed the Rift Guardian.  I couldn't cast a Town Portal to get back and see Orek until I either killed all the monsters nearby or ran far enough away to cast one, so that cost me at least another 30 seconds.  I didn't get the Achievement, but I have no idea how close I was.  I think I'll try a few more times, maybe set a timer on my phone or something to see what my time is.

Crap, maybe that's where the problem is.  I assumed that the five-minute timer ended when the Rift Guardian was dead, the same as with Greater Rifts.  I've been taking my time going back and picking up Death's Breaths and Shinies, because I know that once I visit Orek, there won't be enough time.

Running a T13 Nephalem Rift in five minutes is proving to be a pain in the ass.  Is there any way to tell how long it took (besides the obvious, setting a timer or something)?  I run and think I get through it pretty quickly, but obviously it's still taking more than five minutes; I'd just like to know how close I'm getting.  If I'm still like two or three minutes over, I'll just forget about it for now.  If I can't do that, then there's no point in going for the second Conquest.
