Well I wanted to try Skyrim out with new textures, weathers, ENB, all that good stuff to test out my new GFX card and I got sucked back into Skyrim big time  ;D

Like Geoff said, we love you Tim!  :D

We're like family here!
You love the people, but it's not like there's another option :P

You're genuinely insane Tim and I will pass on this challenge, but will definitely follow your progress!

My GFX card died so I got stuck playing low res games for a couple weeks.

New AMD RX5700 just arrived though, time to make it hurt. Haven't had a new card in years!

Damn nice claw Dust!

New necro on the comeback trail!

Have all Ancients again except for amulet, I'm using Hellfire which is one of the easier  Ancients to get, so I spent some time doing keywardens and such and rolled about 20 when I got this:

Just need to decide how to roll it, thinking % life for Crit damage :)
Thorns secondary will also be nice if I change to a thorns build.

Thanks guys.

So for a home game system on the TV, with no need for handheld, would I want a Switch or Wii U?

Can someone please explain the Switch to me?

Is it a console? Handheld? Both?

I want a Nintendo console to play at home with the kids 2-4 player games and such, is Switch what I want?

The online stores have left me...perplexed.

My necro died :( I was running GR80s for gear and such, about 5 levels below my max, so it's very comfortable and safe...usually. For some reason I didn't notice that my cheat death passive had triggered (life globe sometimes bounces around with elite pack damage and Devour restoring life), accidentally stepped into a molten explosion and died. Dammit.

Rebuilding my necro currently. So new gems to level, fortunately I was leveling another LOD now and then so I had a level 60 one spare. Played Rathma's for a while until I had a couple Ancients, then switched back to LOD. Funnily enough, I found an Ancient Dayntee's Binding on a gem leveling run, dropped from the RG. It is the one Ancient that eluded me last time, even after thousands of blood shards, belt upgrades and rerolls, then it just randomly drops   ::) RNG is weird.

Have also been progressing with my Monk, that new set is really strong, I have hit GR95 and could probably go a few higher, but I definitely need better gear to really push. Although I crunched some numbers and Sunwuko set actually does more damage if you get the newer Vengeful Wind that adds 10 stacks to Sweeping Wind, I am using an Ancient that has +6 stacks because it's an older one. So I might switch to Sunwuko's at some point. I am really enjoying leveling gems past 80 though, I have been swapping gems from other characters around a bit to level them higher too.

Also had a weird incident where I opened the Cow level with a Bovine Bardiche, the transmute animation played but the portal never opened  :o Never happened before, I am hoping it was a once off occurrence because I have a couple more bardiches.

Anyone know if Ancient Bovine Bardiche makes a better cow level, like Ancient puzzle rings?

Awesome find!

I bought Stardew Valley the other day and have been playing it a little bit.  It reminds me of playing a old Zelda game without the puzzles and combat.  It is pretty low stress, there isn't a quest line or anything, so you kind of just do whatever you want...raise crops, animals, explore the mine, interact with townsfolk, etc.  I think it is a nice change of pace game.

I bought it on sale too! Trying to recapture the magic of Harvest Moon on Super Nintendo, which it does quite well!

Decided I wanted to play the new Monk set, so I fired up my old Te,pest Rush monk with Inna's and slogged through a T13. Made some changes and got T15 viable, then just grinded rifts and GRs until I got the set.

It rules.
Immediately started destroying T16, jumped about 10 GRs.
Did about an hour of runs trying to get a Won Khim Lau, finally got one to drop and it was Ancient :D
Once I equiped that, damage became insane. One shotting T16 trash mobs, elites dying in seconds, jumped another 10 GRs.

Lots of fun!

*Cookie Given*

Melchy, just curious, what is the spread of those on the ladder?  as you go down the rankings, is it close or not? Just wondering how many people are playing, and how hard they are pushing

Just did some HC necro GRs with Salem  ;D Thanks for the game!

Made some solo progress and I am now rank 12 HC Necro. If I could get some damn Ancient Illusory Boots to drop I can take 10th :D

Played a couple hours this morning but decided to take a break on a high note. After a string of Necro deaths, I have a strong and safe build.

Today I achieved:
Paragon 1000 in HC :D
GR 75 with HC Necro
Rank #28 Necro on HC America server, with aspirations for Top 10

The build I'm using is Legacy of Dreams, Singularity Mages with skeletons for meatshields. I have taken it really slow to build the equipment for this character, playing 5 GRs lower than my damage would allow, keeping me from dying while I build my damage reduction items.

Notable parts of the build:
  • Krysbin's Sentence with stun (Bone Armor (Dislocation) + Bone Spikes (stun rune)) and slow (Decrepify + Raise Skeleton (Freezing Grasp)) for triple damage
  • Skeletal Mages with Requiem Cereplate + Reapers Wraps + Life from Death passive + Devour (cannibalize), means I always have Essence to recast and Circle of Nailuj's Evol for double mages
  • Unity + Dayntee's Binding + Bone Armor for damage reduction

Still have improvements to make, missing a couple Ancients, gems need leveling, would like to change from Trag'ouls Corroded Fang to Scythe of the Cycle but I am yet to get an ancient one.

I am open to suggestions for improvement if anyone wants to go look at my hero profile :)
