Currently playing 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim.  It combines several Japanese genres, mainly Kaiju/Mech battles and High School Drama (most of the Mech pilots are high school kids), with a branching nonlinear story path for each protagonist.  It won Best Narrative last year and I could see it getting there given the complexity.  It's made by Vanillaware, which, if you remember Dragon's Crown, has some of the best 2D artwork around, albeit somewhat more "sexy" than is necessary (though it's not nearly as exaggerated here).

I watched some Fox News yesterday after the verdict just to get the perspective from the other side.  I had to turn it off after about 15 minutes.  All they were talking about was how there is America isn't racist, there's no systemic racism in America, white people aren't racist, etc, etc... It was disgusting.  Of course all the people saying this were white.

yeah there's some gross-ass shit coming from the right...

Guilty on all three charges.  Now we can expect an appeal.  Still, it is very good news.

Thanks for the advice and offer, D2A, and great to hear from you. :) I'm trying to do this untwinked, so I'm going to try to keep going as self-found (for now!).

No mauls yet, but I'll keep my eyes peeled. Cheers!

Working my way through the Monestary and on to Andy. The Smith only dropped a Nef for me, but it was my first rune, so let's get the party started!

Good to see your still going too. :) Don't forget things like 3 chips and a sword for socketed sword or Steel rune word too (TirEl) if you can't find something decent soon.

Well, that problem's solved.  It occurred to me that I'm going to collect a lot of Blood Shards while levelling a gem to 50 just so I can get the achievement for augmenting an Ancient Something, so I figured I'd gamble Rings until I got a Puzzle Ring.  Two batches of Shards later, I got one.  Killed Greed on T13, got the gem to 50, now I just my second Conquest on Europe.

Just for shits and giggles, I tried Speed Demon a few times.  Finish a Torment 10 Rift in two minutes or less.  That's insane.  I think it takes more than two minutes just to physically run through a Nephalem Rift, let alone kill things.  So it looks like I'll go for Avarice again.

'ello all!

Anyone have any weapon recommendations for a low-level werewolf druid? I'm coming in totally untwinked, so I'm a blank slate. So far I've been using a crappy gemmed club with a shield, and I'm thinking there has to be a better approach.

Thanks in advance for any tips or suggestions!
Usually you can find or buy a scepter at low level that is better than a club or mace. If you can get one with a few sockets you can throw in some elemental damage or something to help out too. If you want a two hand a socketed maul is the best choice for lower level.

If you would want a 1.09 item I am sure I could dig one up for you and whatever you would want to put in it for low level.

Set Dungeons are so annoying.  Mrs. Orbert has gotten good enough at D3 to where she's finally going past Chapters 1-4 and into Conqueror, Slayer, whatever they are.  First thing she asked me about was Set Dungeons.  I told her not to bother, but if she gets everything else done, I can help her out.

I always do the IK Set Dungeon, period.  It's the only one I don't completely hate, and the only one I can master.  I'm pretty sure those two things are related.

Five more Bounties and I'll have enough chests for Avarice, which gets me the Stash Tab on Americas.  I'm not quite as far on Europe.  Started with the Barb and have IK pretty well geared, already mastered the dungeon, but haven't haven't been to the Vault yet.  I hate the ones that rely on pure luck.  I'll probably get to Greed eventually, probably via Puzzle Ring, but it's really harshing my enthusiasm to keep going, knowing that it could all be for naught unless the RNG gods smile on me.  I'm okay with doing things that require perserverence and/or actual skill.  I hate putting effort into things that might go to waste if not for some chance event happening.
