Way to go and ruin everything! :P

I have completed the N6M4 set items.  The pieces could be better but I am now running with most of the correct items, I still want to get my Travelers set.  At this point I am wondering if I have the patience to get to GR70.  I am itching to get back to other games.

I was a bit shocked at the number of people who came back for this season, but not shocked how quickly people are burning out again.  It would be interesting to know the player numbers over a season.  A spike at the start, and how quickly they drop off.

With a bunch of mostly massive buffs, not a single nerf they made the journey a whole lot faster, but the destination is the same as its always been in general.  Mn4nu, hope to see you back in D2

I was able to do a GR82 last night.  I found a Sacred Harvester which helped out with that.  Still no Compass Rose ring to complete the set.  Once I get that, completing a GR90 shouldn't be too far off.  At some point I will need to drop some defense for offense.  I'm not there yet though.

Mn4nu, hope to see you back in D2
I'll be back Tim.  There's still stuff I'd like to do in PlugY. :)

My daughter had the PS4 last night.  So I did HC seasonal Necro on my PC last night.  Did the Darkening of Tristan on Hard.  Finished it at level 25.  Meh.

Rolled with a DH this season, but only up to Chapter 3, having difficulty getting away from Skyrim tbh

So I played a bunch yesterday and I keep marching up Greater Rifts.  I think I am around 50 at this point.  This despite being around 150 paragon levels.  That seems out of wack.  I am T-X level also.  At this point I will probably get to Gr70 around 250 paragon levels.  I think the last times I have done this I was around 600 Paragon levels.  I am also barely playing in a tactical manner.  I am running through the rifts spamming Rain of Vengeance and blasting everything in sight.  Power Creep my ass.  Power gallop more like it.  It does make me wonder if my character is too squishy for the level it is at.  My damage is up but my toughness if at Paragon 150 instead of 400 level.

Also tried to do the Nat set dungeon which is a pain in the ass to keep up Rain for 90 seconds.  I think the high damage output is making this more difficult as I am killing the monsters too quickly.  I need the monsters around so I can reduce the cool down of Rain.  I think I need to change my skills around to generate more Hatred and keep rain going longer.

The Nat's dungeon is one of the easier set dungeons in the game. I think I used Reaper's Wraps to make sure I didn't run out of resources. Let me know if you need a link to a build and I'll track one down.

I passed p800 the earliest I have ever done in a season and rewarded myself by creating a WD to farm gems and goblins. Within an hour of creating him he had already farmed over 250 imperial diamonds, thanks to a rainbow goblin. Still no cosmic wings, though.  :'(

The main problem is not that I am running out of resources.  It is that I am killing things too quickly.  Normally you shoot stuff and each time you do it reduces the cool down of Rain.  Well since I am killing stuff so quickly I am not able to reduce the cool down sufficiently.  I will try some other skill set ups and see if I can do it.

Some people put shittier gear on to reduce their killing speed sssithy. Try some yellows instead

Don't you need to have the complete set on?  The complete set now give 13000% damage increase to all attacks.  Tough to downgrade that if you need to the set on.

Take off some of your gear, remove your gems, etc.  You need the set obviously, but any non-essential gear can come off.

you don't need the weapon to get the complete set bonus, do you? could alway equip some cheap blue/cracked bow/whatever and enjoy 13000% of that.

God damn I hate set dungeons.  I keep running out of rain about 50 seconds into the thing.  Fukking annoying as all fucking shit.
