Diablo 3: Barbarian Might of the Earth Set with Immortal Kings and Seismic Slam Build Review

After feeling disappointed with the Might of the Earth 3 piece and Immortal Kings 5 piece combo, I decided to try going with just the 2 piece Immortal Kings and 5 piece Might of the Earth in conjunction with Seismic Slam. I’m still not fully optimized but I’ll provide my current thoughts with the play style thus far.

Diablo 3: First Impressions of Might of the Earth Barbarian Set

This blog will go over some testing I’ve been doing since acquiring the main pieces to the Might of the Earth Barbarian set. I’m just off by two non-set pieces in the belt and ring that compliment the primary popular build. Instead, I want to go over an alternative build that combines this build with 3 pieces of the Immortal Kings set.

Diablo 3: Was Whirlwind Barbarian Nerfed Too Hard in Patch 2.4?

I read a few articles on how the popular Whirlwind Barbarian from the previous season/patch was nerfed into the ground, but I didn’t experience the issue until today. I had been working on both a Marauders Demon Hunter (main) and Thorns Crusader up until this point and decided to rebirth my old barbarian to check out some of the changes. Unfortunately, the way the gear dropped for me lead me towards the Wrath of the Wastes set style Whirlwind Barbarian and left me with the following impression.

Diablo 3: Patch 2.4/Season 5 Review and Ideas for Next Patch/Season

Although I haven’t tried out the new set dungeons nor some of the newer builds, I just want to toss out some late night thoughts regarding the patch and season thus far as well as some ideas for the future.

Game of Thrones: Will Arya Stark be the One to Kill Cersei Lannister?

In a ritualistic fashion, Arya Stark repeats the names of all the people she intends to gain revenge upon for destroying her family and life. One of the key names on that list is Cersei Lannister. While Arya has not been able to exact vengeance upon everyone on her list, she has managed to scratch a few here and there. With the upcoming Season 6 and in A Dance with Dragons, we anticipate (and see) Arya continuing her training process as an assassin and it’s assumed that her inherent intent is to eventually slaughter the remainder of the people on that list. However, will she be able to nail the Queen or will something else stop her?

The Need for a Paradigm Shift in Hiring

Recruiters are aidzcancer. They are nothing more than 2nd hand leechers profiting off of companies’ inability or unwillingness to properly screen and locate candidates. Instead, what happens is that you get a bunch of people that companies still have to screen that are marketed to the company for an unreasonable fee. Essentially, they’re legalized pimps. I don’t know about the good people out there, but this method of hiring fucking stinks and I’m going to propose something a little different here.

Developers are Fucking Retards

At the risk of alienating myself from the development community at large, I want to rant a bit about why I believe developers are fucking retards. As someone in the tech industry for 16+ years and someone who’s been coding for even longer, I’ve seen things go in circles that I had hoped would lead to something profound. Instead, I’ve come to realize that instead of moving forward constantly a lot of the industry goes through it’s Dark Age periods and with the web and mobile, it’s probably at it’s lowest point.

World of Warcraft: What the Tanaan Jungle Got Right and Wrong

Patch 6.2 was one of the biggest content patches for Warlords of Draenor. But it might be the last major content patch prior to the expansion. At this point, rumor has it that we’re around 10 months out from Legion, which means we’ll be stuck doing either Tanaan Jungle, Hellfire Citadel or PVP for the rest of the expansion in terms of major end game content. For PVE’rs like myself, we’ll be jammed running dailies over and over in the Tanaan Jungle until our eyes bleed. So let’s go over what this area has done right and wrong.

Game of Thrones: What Will Tyrion Lannister and Varys Do in Season 6?

One of the most popular character of the Game of Thrones series is Tyrion Lannister as he uses his wit to get himself out of all sorts of predicaments. Currently, Tyrion is being setup to handle the politics of Meereen while Ser Jorah Mormont and Daario Naharis locate the missing Daenerys. For his troubles, Tyrion receives the help of his old buddy Varys and the seemingly oddball sidekicks of Greyworm and Missandei to aid him. All seems right in the world since it’s Tyrion who gets to play ruler once again, but this time without the conniving sister, idiot nephew, oppressive father and backstabbing court attempting to see him fail. Many of the cards seem to favor Tyrion, leaving a for once positive backdrop for him to do what he does best.

Game of Thrones: What Will Sansa Stark and Theon Greyjoy/Reek Do in Season 6?

Another major story arc that needs to be resolved is the fates of Sansa Stark and Theon Greyjoy/Reek. Although both jumped from the high walls of Winterfell, both presumably will find some form of padding (or as people are describing it these days as “plot armor”). Of course, the real threat are the Boltons and doubtlessly Ramsay will be the most upset as his wife and plaything have escaped. Will the pair run far enough to evade the clutches of the insane and possessive Ramsay? Where will they go?
