So it’s Harris for VP. Not a huge surprise, seems like a solid choice.

40 mill for the ceo, eh?  Seems reasonable.

still can't believe trump's people let him do this interview. he couldn't handle the recent couple of interviews on fox without looking like a senile asshat and that's as friendly as it gets.

watch the gold counter in the lower right corner of the screen. i think it times out after 5 seconds? if you keep picking up gold in that time frame then it'll keep going up. once it gets to 50M, you've got the conquest. think of it like a gold version of the monster kill massacre bonus. that is why a maxed BotH with the 100% gold drop from monster kills is nice to use. the act 5 dungeons are great due to the zillion scarabs that come out of the walls. if you use a build that moves/kills fast at the same time (barb WW, dh strafe), it's really easy. i used the dreadlands set (with goldskin/goldwrap/royal ring/emerald in the helm) this season. the belt is not to be overlooked, you'll have stretches with toughness over a trillion. good to run through and open all the doors and pull all the scarabs out, then circle back to kill everything. can easily get 100M+ streaks at t13 with that. also easy with wrath of the wastes. i've used dh UE and shadow sets in the past, but it's nicer to move/kill at the same time.

edit: make sure you're comfortably safe, though. It's a partial nerf to equip most of the gold find gear and i've lost a few characters this way from being overconfident in the past. that's why i recommend the belt. but dreadlands is very strong for this.

I decided to maybe go for a Stash Tab this time, since last time was easier than I thought it would be.  I figured I'd at least take a look.  I know that Mastering a Set Dungeon is always in there, and I've always hated Set Dungeons, but after running the Immortal King Set Dungeon last time and realizing how silly it was, I figured why not?  All I needed was to finish one to get Slayer, then I mastered it to get Champion, which is where I am now.  I'm gonna cheese out and just do 31 chests for Avarice, and Thrill should be simple with my Rapid Fire DH using Legacy of Dreams.  Yay.  Five chests so far.  I'll probably do ten more tomorrow.

avarice is easy with several DH (or barb) builds and a maxed boon of the hoarder gem, if you'd rather go that route. go to one of the dungeons in A5 with all the scarabs and you'll get it pretty quickly. and then you can use the lvl50 gem to augment something and get that checked off the list as well.

I can't figure out this IK set dungeon. I heard it was the easiest. But I can't keep wrath of the berserker up, and I keep failing. Any tips? I'm going to go try the DH Marauders set dungeon and see if I can figure that one out.

Nevermind, I got it with Marauders. Just have to avoid the worms.

for IK, one of the set bonuses is reduced CD for WotB based on mana spent. try putting ancient spear/boulder toss in a skill slot; burns all your mana in one hit and should generally make recasting WotB possible right off the bat. glad you got marauders, congrats on getting guardian!

You probably want mortick’s bracers and a ring of might, instead. The bracers will give all runes for berserker which includes 50% DR. The ring is the barb version of the elusive ring.

lol, neat trick. will have to remember that.

got a couple GR100s with the dreadlands set. am now messing around with the new necro set.

“We don’t think our children should be locked up at home with devastating consequences when it’s perfectly safe for them to go to school,” McEnany said at the White House press briefing.

“The science should not stand in the way of this,” McEnany told reporters.

She said the United States is the “outlier” among “peer nations” when it comes to schools reopening amid the global coronavirus pandemic.

huh, where else is the US an outlier among peer nations? dunno, it's a mystery.

over 15 thousand new cases reported in Florida today. single day record for any state since this began.

yeehaw.

edit: Devos was on the sunday morning shows talking about how important it is that schools open this fall, and how trump may withhold funding for any school that doesn't have in-school classes (which would be illegal, but who cares about that). she compared the US to other countries that have had some success opening schools, and completely ignored the point that the US is having between 3 and 4 ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE more new cases than any of the countries she used as a metric.

realized the '6 sets to gr55' wasn't a conquest this season. no good reason to have saved haedrig's gift after all. oh well. was able to get a 2min T10 rift with the dreadlands set, so it worked out. don't think i've ever gotten that conquest before. have the 3 conquests done, but need to figure out which set dungeon to do. not a fan of the DH options there.

i've tried using blind faith before but never have figured how to use the high blind rate to good effect.

edit: got the new pet. purely cosmetic but i really like the steampunk design of the set/pet.

And once you get the set gifts, things take off. With skill and gear inflation over the past few years, its easy to get the set pretty fast.  Nswhorse was speedrunning GRs in the mid 60s last night with the DH gift set and otherwise mediocre gear. Piles paragon levels on really fast.

edit: got a sash of knives for the GR70 primal. boo...  am really liking the DH dreadlands set, tho. speedy.
