You can take other people with you in the set dungeons, Drozz, so don't be afraid to ask for help, this season or the next! Every class has an easy dungeon, so keep that in mind as well. There are some good guides out there as well, that I dig up whenever I get to that part of the season. Mastering one of the set dungeons is one of my least favorite parts of the season, even though I also solo'd them all in the past.

And hey, there is still a week left in the season, so it's not too late to get that tab!

Anyone check out the PTR yet? The seasonal theme needs a HUGE power boost to make it not suck. The visuals on dragon breath are cool, but that's about it.

Hey Drozz, I sent you a friend request. If it didn't go through, I'm Daveismyhero#1508

I accepted, so we're good. Let me know what you want to do in game together.

Excellent! I'll probably be mainly AFK until the season starts. Once S20 kicks off, I'll be up for just about anything, especially once I hit 70.

Hey Dave!

Hit me up in game. I think my full name is Drozz34 #1477. I may not have the number right.

We just had the first case confirmed here in Indiana, about 150 miles away.

It is very interesting watching this all unfold in realtime.

The new patch is out, 2.6.8, and I had a chance to try out the new Barb and Witch Doctor sets. Both very different. Fans of the up close and personal, in your face Barb style action will enjoy the new Frenzy set. I'm still working through the mechanics of the WD set, but it's pretty interesting. More button pushing with the WD - as usual - than the Barb.

Thanks for the thoughts, Cluck, and please keep reporting back as you play the new sets. I'm going to start with a barbarian in S20, then probably switch to the WD if I continue to hear good things about the new set.

Don't keep us in suspense.  Did you vote for him?

Not yet!  :P

Barely fun fact:

My friends and I registered to vote at a David Duke booth at one of the local county fairs. Didn't realize he was a white supremacist until we got home and were looking through the literature they stuffed in our goodie bags while we did the registration paperwork.

Whoops!

Drozz.  FYI this game is now one of their legacy ones or whatever they call it.  They might do a few minor tweaks for future seasons.  Offer a new pet/skin but basically once you've seen it all you are done.

They are actually continuing to add new class sets to the game. This time around the new sets are for wizard (hydra) and barbarian (frenzy).

Drozz! Holy hell, the gang's all here!

I'll be hitting it hard for the next season on both America and EU, at least until I complete the journey in both places.

Just bought the game.

I hope the bugs don't drive me insane.

Watch out for those untargettable (is that a word?) bats in one of the early cave systems! Hopefully they patched that already.

I never experienced any untargettable (your word) bats.

The end game is a whole thing about rebuilding the city, so it's an endless mode of dungeons and missions designed to get more loots and moneys and build up resources and construct stuff so you can get more loots and moneys and stuff. Constructing different buildings gives you different benefits - one might be gold find, another magic find, another unlocks the 5th skill button, others do... lots of other things.

It's neat, and in true ARPG form, it exists just to keep the hamster wheel of kill-loot-level going. :D

Thanks for the info! I've heard people mention the city, and now I know a little bit more about it. Cheers!

So far very happy with the game.  I am still on my way toward my second main objective after you get to the starting point.  Crawling around some tunnels.  Everything seems smooth so far.  Though I did run into those Bats.  Very difficult to directly target.  That said a little AOE and they are gone.  Starting with a fighter based class and the first main attack they give you is AOE so not that difficult.  Not sure if other bases have more difficulty but I would guess no.

Yeah, my archer couldn't target them at all, even with AOE attacks. There may be some YMMV in there. Have fun and keep on rockin'!

I'm hoping to get back to some offline play with said archer this weekend, if life cooperates.

Just finished the Wolcen campaign. Now on to the endless post-game, which is really quite neat.

That, or start a new character. So many build possibilities...

Wait ... Wut? you finished a campaign?  What have you done with Pixie?

So what is the end game/post-game in Wolcen?

Oh, I also pre-ordered Rune Factory 4 for the Switch, which comes out next week. I'm hoping that will keep me entertained until Animal Crossing drops next month.
