  • Diablo 4: Upcoming Campfire Talk and General Musings

    Blizzard has announced an upcoming campfire chat on February 29th, which involves the upcoming gauntlet/leaderboards, balance changes and “loodthirsty powers set(ting) to make their return.” While I’m certain some of the more hardcore loyalists will be returning to participate in the gauntlet/leaderboards aspect, I have high doubts that these parts of the game will set…

  • Diablo 4: Latest Patch A Failure?

    I know for some people that found their uber uniques in the wild and posted them to reddit, they might believe that the latest Diablo 4 patch a failure. In my case, I think that’s more like using Scotch tape instead of a proper band aid to triage a gaping wound. For all but the…

  • Diablo 4: New Patch Coming Out That Will Address Uber Uniques (But Not Really)

    Tomorrow, Blizzard will release a patch to allow people to salvage their Uber Uniques into special crafting materials to create the actual Uber Unique they’re hunting for (if they’ve been unable to find it). At the same time, they will be updating the drop rates of Uber Uniques for content outside of Duriel runs. However,…

  • Diablo 3: Altar Completed Today

    I finished up my Altar today. The last real barrier was an Ancient Puzzle Ring. I solved that (har) by reforging in the Cube until it was Ancient. Took quite a bit of mats but my luck this season with drops had been somewhat subpar. That said I did manage to get a Primal Ancient…

  • Diablo 3: Challenge Rift Down; Season 30 Progresses

    Found out late tonight that the Challenge Rift was a gimped version of the GoD build. While the build itself wasn’t optimized (man, I want to punch out whoever put that together!), the actual Challenge Rift wasn’t that bad. So I decided to give it a shot as it’s pretty hard to go wrong on…

  • Diablo 3: Season 30 Continuation Weekend

    I didn’t have a lot of time this past week to get a chance to progress in Diablo 3. Part of it was that the Challenge Rift ended up being complete rubbish again so I lost a bit of motivation to pursue the Altar. However, this weekend I had been playing with my Barbarian a…

  • Diablo 3: Balls Out Theorycrafting An Uber Season

    Given that we won’t see new seasons, one thing I do hope for in the future (beyond my usual complaints of getting more Emanating follower items, making more of the legendary gems useful and adding new powers to bland and worthless legnadaries) is a balls out Diablo 3 Season that takes the best seasons and…

  • Diablo 4: Got the Barbarian Helmet Finally!

    Decided to do a bunch of Duriel runs today on my Barbarian. Of course, the last run is where I managed to secure the Tuskhelm of Joritz the Mighty, which was the last major piece for my Hammer of the Ancients Barbarian build. Along the way I finally got an upgraded Azurewrath too. When the…

  • Diablo 4: 3rd Level 100 Character

    I finished up my druid today with regards to leveling him to 100. I used dungeons to both level him and his glyphs. I still need a few more glyphs to be leveled to 15 (for the radius effect). However, for the time being, I decided to cool it so I could focus on a…

  • Diablo 4: Duriel on Farm

    This morning I used up my remaining materials for farming Duriel. From that, I managed to pick up two Tibault’s Will and two Godslayer Crowns (and a few other uniques). From that I transitioned my Sorcerer into full Ball Lightning, respec’ing her tree and am in the process of leveling up her glyph. With that…
