Today, I had a very interesting experience where another player attacked me roughly 3 times with troops and maybe a dozen times total (not sure if he was cheating and/or scouting me out). At any rate, his actual attacks failed every single time. Though lower level than me, I could tell that even if he was closer, he would have a very difficult time. Why? One word: The Grappler.
So once again, I decided to try some hacks with EE Keeper. Now, previously, I was able to change the NPCs into classes that were far more interesting than what they were provided. There wasn’t any technical penalties thus far in the game. The next question is whether I could try a few other combinations, especially adding a Kit to a multi-class?
Although Season 8’s Haedrig Gift for Demon Hunters will not be the Shadow Mantle set, I decided to goof around a little with this set and see what felt good in trying to come up with a reasonable build. This is by no means a meta build nor is it meant for ultra high Greater Rifts. But the build is something just for fun in case you get bored with other Demon Hunter builds.
This morning I finally managed to get to XP 47 and acquired enough resources to begin building a HQ 19. I still haven’t finished my goals while I was working towards HQ 19, which was to really push my landing craft. But the opportunity came up and I decided to go for it and use most of HQ 19 to upgrade my landing craft. However, after reading the forums, it sounds like the grind is going to be really painful.
Reddit’s Freefolk section had a bunch of unconfirmed rumors for the upcoming Season 7. Whether or not they’re true remains to be seen of course. However, I think it’s important to go through and determine which ones look feasible and the implications.
Season 7 is ending soon and we won’t be seeing any new content for Season 8 beyond changing up the Haedrig’s Gift sets. The good news is that we can begin examining the choices for characters based partly on what the next group of Haedrig’s Gift sets has to offer. Although there hasn’t been any official postings about what those sets specifically are, we can speculate that we’ll be seeing the last sets in rotation for Season 8.
HQ Level 18 was something I looked forward to for a while mostly because I would get access to Scorchers. There’s a few other upgrades that would make this level one to strive for, including the next-to-the-last level Sculptor and some killer armory upgrades. However, between here and HQ level 19, it feels like taking a shotgun blast to the gun (although admittedly, I’ve never done anything like that to myself).
I bought a couch in 2005 that has served me well. Usually though, around this time of the year as the seasons grow dryer and mold starts to set in, I’ve found that I get horrible rashes and itches. Part of the culprit appears to be my couch since it’s old and the material probably has collected a lot of dirt, body particles/oil, mold and other bits of nastiness. Although I intend to find a cleaner to handle some of the issue, a quick I found was using a comforter and blanket.
When social media sites like Friendster, Myspace, Facebook, etc. came out, I was ecstatic. As a web developer, I was excited to see a new incarnation of technological possibilities that could help my career. Over time, these platforms devolved from technology solutions and communication platforms to ad-centric spam hosts and spyware for marketing people. Worse yet much of the posts on these platforms have become low quality clickbait and irrelevant posts that no longer provide important updates about my friends.
Social media is almost like a perverse version of The Force from Star Wars in that it, “It’s an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us; it binds the galaxy together.” Unfortunately, it’s so pervasive and intrusive that it’s become supremely annoying and an opportunity for marketers to continue shoveling their shit into our faces. But most of the large platforms are slowly becoming sheer garbage as they determine ways for having more and more garbage posts that separate what many of us really want: true human interaction with meaning. Thus, between all the social media platforms, I’ve found that Instagram might be the platform that many of us are looking for.
