I am playing a monk on the PS4.  My main goal is to get level 70 and I am almost there.  The achievement is to have a level 70 character of each class.  It seems that HC characters didn't count which is annoying.  After the monk, I have Which Doctor and Wizard to do.  I also need 500 bounties.  I am closing in on 400 so still a few to go.  Because of the bounties, I might get my monk to higher paragon levels in the season.

To be honest I probably shouldn't have bothered with the season as LoN doesn't seem that interesting to me.  Not really interested in trying to find ancients of the right gear to make it work.

Play a few public games and you could have the bounty part complete in a half hour or less. 25 bounties per run at probably 5-7 minutes per run isn't unreasonable in a 4 player game. Some games go faster than that.

You could also level a gem of ease and use that to level those other characters to 70 really fast.

I have been looking at the gem of ease thing.  I guess there is another recipe that removes the level requirement?

I have never been comfortable in an MP game with strangers.  They generally play at a different speed and have different goals.

Can't say I know my way around a PS4 so the requirements may be different but generally, you do GRs and upgrade your gem of ease to 25 in order to use it.

I am one achievement away from completing chapter 4 with my Monk.  I have less than 70 bounties left to run to get that achievement.  A bit annoying, but doable.  I have completed my get six characters to level 70.  So I am closing in on wrapping up my D3 play.

So I got my 500 bounties and platinumed D3 on the PS4.

At this point I think I am done with D3.  I started with a monk and then I end with a monk.  My last kill was Maltheal.

RIP D3.

Though I reserve the right to dust it off.  I just don't see that happening.

Congrats on finishing!  I think most people are done with it.  It doesn't ever get anything new and there isn't the staying power that D2 had, at least for me that is.

Now join me on the PC and knock out the 10,000 bounty achievement. :D

Grats, Sssithly!

I may quit the game if I ever get those cursed Cosmic Wings to drop.

Yeah...that is a hard no.  No clue how many bounties I have on PC, I would guess around 1,500.

At one point I was going to do it, but really its just a bloody long grind, even in pub games where you only have to do part of the work.  The rewards you get along the way don't help justify the effort compared to fun in other games.

If an achievement can scare Tim, then count me out too  ;D

I think that achievement was initially like 100,000 bounties or some other really big amount. They lowered it to 10k later on.
