Literally an hour after I posted, I found a primal compass rose with all the right stats...Not a Karlie's but it's a primal I can actually use.

Awesome!  This has to be some kind of a record, 2 useful primals so close to each other.

So I decided to try and get the platinum trophy for D3 on PS4.  I need to get 7 characters to 70.  The annoying thing to me is that it seems HC doesn't count.  Because of that I still need Monk, Wizard, and Witch Doctor.  I also need 500 bounties.  No clue what number I am up to.

After playing this game so long I should know this, but I don't. If a skill doesn't list a elemental (fire, cold, lightning etc.)
effect should you assume it's physical damage? I am playing a new HC barb and using seismic slam but only one of the
runes lists cold as an elemental effect, so the other four runes are physical? Thanks.

For seismic slam, the un-runed skill damage is physical.  Stagger rune = Lightning, Shattered Ground = Fire, Rumble = Physical, Strength from the Earth = Physical, Permafrost = Cold.

Thought I'd give Guardian on all 3 realms a shot and finished using DH and Wizard. It was interesting using the various set options for the Wiz to complete the 6 sets to GR 55 objective. I've never been a fan of archon in particular and was surprised at the damage of Vyr's archon build and how quickly archon can be reset. It is best suited for greater rifting but I've been trying it out as a T16 farming build as I really enjoy farming torment more than GRing. So far it's worked quite well even considering I'm always dropping my stacks to pick up mats and stuff.

I found Firebird's a tough set to play and not one I felt I wanted to play much more of. It seems to be that it's a boss only build without much ability to clear trash - but it also may be my inexperience.

I like a generalist build which can do torment, GRs and bounties which is why I generally gravitate to DH, but it's nice to do something different. I watched a bunch of videos on Wizard speed builds to better understand how the pros manage with all the stopping during torment farming to pick up mats but even the speed build videos simply show them running through the rift without picking much up.

I feel like doing some 'old man' playstyle videos, for those who enjoy taking their time and exploring a bit of the rift but I doubt there are many folks outside our clan that would have any interest.

I'm with you Cluck, the speed builds don't really appeal to me either. I did build a Capt America crusader which is
pretty powerful and fun.

Switched my Vyr's set for Tals and it's pretty fun. I like that it's steady damage - unlike Vyr's - and with all buffs up its very tanky.  The graphics are fun, all the meteors falling steadily from the sky look great.
