Diablo 3 / Re: Diablo 2 Hero Selection Tshirt

Pretty nice.  I would wear such a shirt.  I don't know if I'd buy one, but I would wear one.

Ran some Torment XVI Rifts last night, and a few more this morning.  I like it.

I'm assuming most of us have characters that blow through T13 Rifts and literally only do it for the GR tokens, so having higher Torment levels available is fine with me.  I noticed that yellow dudes can drop four Death's Breaths now instead of three, drop rates are higher, etc.  All good.  Might as get more goodies and/or crafting materials.

Haven't tried Bounties yet at higher Torments.  Spent most of my time integrating my Seasonal stuff.

Thinking of maybe sitting out this Season, now that there's actually a few things I can do in non-Seasonal to push my characters.

Yeah, I heard that Fury figures rather prominently, since it's set in the past and thus before "the Avengers initiative" and all that.  Didn't know about Coulson, but I like him, too, so that's cool.

Mrs. Orbert and I have seen all the MCU movies, mostly in the order released, but the timing for Captain Marvel was just bad.  I was kinda bummed to not have caught it in the theaters because I knew it would be too early to be out on video yet, but we decided that with like 300 characters, maybe missing one of the origin movies wouldn't be a huge deal.

Hopefully without spoiling things too much, I'll say that Endgame was good, and while it may have been helpful to have Captain Marvel's backstory, I don't feel like we missed a whole lot.

We found out that there are still theaters showing Captain Marvel, but whatever; we went for the big one anyway and will catch Captain Marvel on video.

We got one at our theater on Sunday.  I'm not sure how that all works, whether it depends on the studio, theater, both, neither...  ?

It was the same one I'd seen online.  I don't know if there are currently only one or more than one.

I think the title is kinda wacky.  This is the last one, right?  Or at least the last one to follow the Skywalker family?  So why the "Rise" of Skywalker?

The strategy to only buff without nerfs is a bit boring.

This.  Rebalancing things is fine, and preferred for me.  Just making things more powerful, or more likely to drop, etc., only increases the power creep, which is ridiculous now and has been for a while.

True, but I would bet that the percentage of dogs who eat another dog's barf is higher than the percentage of humans who would do the same.

I have no statistics to back this up, but I sleep better thinking it is true.

I still like The Furnace.  I usually cube it, but a primal one would have some nice stats.  Good smashing power.

Okay, that makes sense.  The link above took me to a page in some foreign language.  Now the same link takes me to a page in English.

Okay, I give up.  What it GOG?  I went to the website and it's all in Latin or something.

My N6M4 now has all Ancient equipment (counting the Primal Rucksack), and the "next level" is boosting them all via Caldesann's Despair.  Which requires several cranked-up Legendary Gems (which means lots of Keystones) and a whole lot of regular Gems.

Since she had a full UE set in the Stash, I made a UE setup for her, and have been tweaking it.  Optimizing for running T13 Rifts is easier than optimizing for maximum GR level.  Basically everything's focused on speed and damage, so now she flies through regular rifts one-shotting everything and collecting Keystones.  Then I'll level up a Legendary Gem, boost some equipment, rinse and repeat.  At the very least, this will provide some variety as I incrementally boost the N6M4 build.  I'm not sure why I didn't think of this before.  Probably because I still think of characters having certain builds.  I keep forgetting how easy they've made it to switch builds via the Armory.

Got my N6M4 Eurobabe up to GR91 over the weekend.  This is nuts.  Yeah, I know they've inflated all the numbers, but what the hell.  I'm gonna see if I can get up to GR100 at some point, just because it seems like a nice number to shoot for.  I mean, I blew past 70, at 80 it was starting to get tough, but I kept adding Paragon points and getting the occasional equipment upgrade, and eventually I hit 90.  I know there are lots of guys out there doing well over 100, which is insane, but I'm neither that good nor that dedicated (obsessed) with the game.  But it does seem like a worthy goal.
