No grail items in almost 3 weeks.  Found a 2nd Stormspire, now have 4 complete Bul-Kathos sets, found a 2nd Griswold's Valor (both have 30% MF), and this pretty good ring:

+27 Attack Rating
5% Life Steal
5% Mana Steal
Fire Resist +9%
Cold Resist +9%
Lightning Resist +9%
Poison Resist +30%
15% Magic Find

But otherwise it's been pretty hard to keep doing runs with nothing coming.  My lightning sorc even had 3 Gheed's Fortunes drop but all of them were either 20% or 21% MF and hers already has 33% (but it rolls 20-40).

HZD has one of the coolest stories, and I thoroughly enjoyed the slow drip of info as I went along.

As far as what to keep, the items have their uses listed on them, so many of them will only have "sell for shards" or whatever.  Most of the lenses, hearts and skins are for upgrading your inventory capacity, with only a few having any quest uses, but if you upgrade your inventory you should have enough space to hold 1 of almost everything (although you may need to sell down to only 2-3 slots each for the consumables or ammo crafting stuff).  Take some time to hunt animals for their bones and skins too, since many of those are needed too for upgrading and not every animal is in every area.  By the mid/end-game I was completely out of modification slots though and constantly had to sort through them to discard useless ones.

Very nice.  My Javazon is certainly enjoying the Griffon's, makes going through Hell easier when you're guaranteed to instantly wipe most enemies on several screens with one Lightning Fury since many monsters have 33-50% resist.

Summon Necro plowed through all of Hell difficulty without issue so he can start running Cows.  Found a Sur Rune in the River of Flame, which is the highest rune I've ever found, so hopefully that's a good sign that Cows will provide some more.

I had a failed unique Archon Staff drop from one of Eldritch's minions, which I thought was actually impossible since he and his minions are lvl 84 and are capped at TC84 drops, whereas the Archon Staff is lvl 85/TC87 (Mang Song's Lesson is qlvl86, which is why it couldn't drop).  Kinda weird.  I think the diablowiki mentions that most regular monsters can actually drop items from a TC just above their level (but not a unique/set with a qlvl above their level I guess), it's just incredibly rare.

Only 3 games I played that came out this year were Monster Hunter World, Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition, and Yakuza Kiwami 2.  Of the 3, I prefer the latter for some really satisfying scenes that harken back to Yakuza 0 which was #2 for me last year.  Monster Hunter World ate up a bunch of time, but I can't say I really enjoyed that much of it.  NWN:EE is basically just NWN, no improvements other than it works, but it scratched that nostalgia for me.

As far as games from previous years, I played Mass Effect: Andromeda (which was ok, certainly not as good as the other MEs but it didn't offend me), Infamous Second Son (extremely annoying protagonist, very short), Darkest Dungeon (tedious, RNG hell, but at least the narrator is great), Tales of Berseria (several story and character problems, but still pretty good overall), Yakuza Kiwami (not as good as 0 or Kiwami 2), and Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition (lives up to the hype, extremely interesting story and setting, although I used a guide to get through some of the obtuse quest design).  I've still been playing a lot of Diablo 2, Starcraft 2, replayed Bloodborne and Dragon's Dogma, dabbled a bit in Street Fighter V.

At least for me, 2018 was a crap year for gaming (and in my life), but there's plenty coming out in 2019 to look forward to.

Long time no see D2A! :)

How is that Beast coming Timinator?  Any luck finding with runes to make one?  Seems like one of the more fun runewords to make.

After finding that Titan's Revenge (and another later), been working on a Javazon.  Stopped at Normal Cows to farm for the Cow King's Hooves to complete the set, which took about 25 full clears (on top of 250 others from my Necro, Wind Druid, Bowazon, etc.), but at least that's done.  She's now blowing through NM on players 8 like it's nothing, killing bosses in <10 seconds with a lvl 25 Charged Strike, which is way stronger than I thought it was.  It'll be even more fun when she gets to level 76 and can use a 19/14 Griffon's Eye socketed with a 5/5 Facet.

Phew, finally found Tal Rasha's Adjudication.  Figured that would take forever.  Only took... 90 set amulets or so.  Also found a Marrowwalk and a Cranebeak for a few more grailers.

Music / Re: What are you Listening To?

While several of their business decisions are sketchy, Capcom has been killing it lately with the music in SFV.

Theme of Kage (basically "Death Metal Ryu")
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4l2qYQwwseo

Main Menu Theme (very prog-rock)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHoMWuz6-7A

Main Theme (flows pretty well between pretty and badass, was the music for the hype AE trailer)

Zeku Theme (funky time)

Haven't made a ton of progress, mostly been playing around with NWN:EE.  Got 3 more grailers, all Gs, Gargoyle's Bite, The Gladiator's Bane, and Ghoulhide.  My Blizzard sorc is in Hell, although she's mostly all about damage (4300 Blizzard damage, 2500 Ice Blast, 1000 Fireball), so her MF isn't great and she's only at the Crypt/Mausoleum right now, may work on getting to the Ancient Tunnels sometime since there aren't any Cold immunes there either.
