Diablo 3 / Re: Season 18: The Season of the Triune
« on: Today at 02:09:01 PM »
I'm doing a similar thing.  Had a Seasonal Wizard on Americas, then a Monk on Europe, then did a Barb on Asia.  By time he'd run around with the Raekor's set for a while, he'd gotten most of the basic WhirlyWastes gear together, and gambled the rest.  So now he's Whirling around and destroying everything.  Got the swords (one Ancient), ring, and the Flavor of Time amulet, too.  Fun times.

Oooh, thanks for the reminder. I need to get back to EU and jump through the seasonal hoops. I created a monk as soon as the season started, got to the 40s (I think), and haven't been back since the season started in America.

I also need to knock out a set dungeon in America. I'll probably go for one of the necro ones, or the Nat's one for DH. My least favorite part of the season.

I finally made it to the leaderboard with my HC barb. All you need to hit the HC board is patience, and the occasional prayer for no disconnect deaths. Hit #757 with a GR71, mainly to unlock primals.

I may go back to pushing once I get a Band of Might to drop, but until then I'm having a blast speeding through rifts with the whirlwind set with the 2x pylon amulet. Such a fun and relaxing build!

My son and my best friend both grabbed the game over the weekend and they are having a blast with it. My son started as Moze and I think he is level 15 at the moment.

Not many firsts for me in this game anymore but today I got a goblin shrine that also opened a vault and a cow level!!

Nice! That's a fun one.

 I have hit a couple bandit shrines this season, after not finding many last season.

I hit one with my new level 20 HC barb (not dead, not yet), and didn't think I'd be able to kill any of the gobs, much less all of them. Thankfully a lightning pylon was right around the corner, so they all got zapped. :D

I've been kicking around starting a HC barb, but lag seems to be a big threat with the impact WoW Classic is having on the servers. A guy in my clan lost 3 (!) DHs opening night due to lag.

The new circles are kinda fun.  Since I play mostly ranged characters, I tend to put an Occulus Ring on my Templar when I can, and now there are three new circles to play with, too.

I do a little happy dance when I get to stand in the Venn Diagram for a few seconds.  ;D

If you guys need some sketchy necro company, please fire me an invite!

I'm finally having fun with a necro build, although I'm only running T8-9 at the moment as I continue to gear up.

Compared to how much football/soccer I usually watch, I watched a tremendous amount! :D

Of course I had a kid-related event the day of the finals, so I got home just in time to watch the team celebrate.

Anyone check out Age of Wonders: Planetfall yet? Looks like it would scratch my itch, probably once the price comes down.

Now join me on the PC and knock out the 10,000 bounty achievement. :D

Grats, Sssithly!

I may quit the game if I ever get those cursed Cosmic Wings to drop.

OK, I know nobody plays this anymore, but I can't not say anything about this.  I just found a Ber rune from the Council in Travincal.  So now I have 2 Bers and 2 Surs, which means I can make Enigma!

A legit Enigma is a great achievement. Congrats! What are you going to drop it in? Please post a screenshot after you push the big red button. :D

I'm done with the season journey!  Now back to Diablo 2 and Fallout New Vegas!

Congrats and good luck!

I finished the journey on NA on Tuesday, and now I'm working through it on EU. I think I have two stages left, and the final conquest will be the hold up there, as I need to gear up an alt (probably a monk) to knock out the GR55 with two monk sets.

Got my GR70 primal drop last night and it was a Leoric's Signet ring, which is worthless. At least I got 15 forgotten souls for it.

I like those for leveling alts, after you combine them with a level 25 Gem of Ease. But yeah, not exactly a good primal under non-Dave circumstances.

Remember how screwed up D3 was when it first came out? Good times!

I wish I could have experienced it for the perspective. Sadly I didn't join the D3 party until the week RoS dropped.

A couple years ago I would have gladly pre-ordered D4. Now, not so much. I'm still having a grand time in 3, but if 4 ever appears, I'll wait to see how big of a clusterfudge it is before I hop on the hype train.
