Season 14 - The Season of Greed
« on: June 15, 2018, 08:31:30 AM »
So, it's the start of a new season. Anyone going to play?

The themed seasons could be pretty cool going forward - there's some decent potential for cool ideas, but let's see how Blizzard implements them.

I may play do some casual HC this season. Probably a Crusader.

Chasing goblins around is not my cup of tea.

Unless you are OP compared to the little shits I find it tedious.  And I always end up with too much gold anyway.  Of course I never bothered spending gold on rifts.

If you guys are thinking about playing season 14 keep in mind the challenge rift this week is very easy, good way to start a season.

Thanks for the heads-up!  I rarely do the challenge rift.  Actually, I think I've only ever done it when someone mentions that it's easy, otherwise it's usually a waste of time for me.  It takes me a long time to get good enough at any given build to suddenly jump in a run a rift with one and beat someone else's time.

Anyway, I'm playing a Demon Hunter on Americas and a Wizard on Europe.  Good old M6 is running T9 already.  Wizard's just getting started.  My favorite part of the game is building up the character, so I'm a sucker for seasons.

Ah!  I haven't been looking. :(  I guess I kinda figured that the "Mine" thing had run its course.  If I added more, I'd have to shrink them down or something.

The goblins have made this season tolerable because it starts you with so many materials. Other than that, D3 needs an upgrade badly.

I'm still trying builds I've never seriously tried before, so I'm still finding new things to do and try.  But I understand if a lot of guys have pretty much done everything with the game that they're going to do.  It's still a finite amount of content; everyone's eventually going to get to their point.  The only solution to that is for Blizzard to literally keep putting out new content for free (which is not really a good business model) or move on to like Diablo IV or something else.

I saw some things in Facebook memories that it was TEN years ago blizzard first put out the teaser then told us they were working on D3.  Wonder if its another 5-10 before they tease the next is coming.

Got two Menagerist Gobs at the same time on my seasonal toon on the European server. Dropped Humbart and the Stomach, pretty cool.

The double goblin thing has been great sometimes, and sometimes really frustrating.  When I have a character that's working it's way up, killing a goblin can often be quite a challenge in the first place, and it doesn't help that they often seem to show up around the same time as an elite pack.  Double goblins in those cases usually just leave me pissed off because two of them get away, not just one.

On the other hand, once I've gotten someone to T13 and am running rifts at T12 just to collect GR tokens, I love it.  I cornered a pair of blue guys at the end of a tunnel, killed both, then all four, then all eight, then all 16.  The amount of loot was insane!
