This week only we’re getting a special prototype troop in Heavy Choppers. Previously, Heavy Choppers were exclusive to Warships but now it’s been made available to the normal base. After my initial playthrough with them, I must admit that this troop possibly is the best troop I have yet played with in this game.
Patch 2.7.0 has been a real gift to the power gamer type with the upgrade to Followers as well as the new Emanate system. With that system in place, a lot more doors begin to open up that demonstrate future potential improvements to the game, even if the basic idea is the same loop. But this post discusses my own additions so that there’s more ways to use loot and how Diablo 3 can continue to be updated.
I woke up extra early this morning and felt the urge to finish up the season journey. The biggest challenge, sad to say, was the set dungeon. But I had an Invoker set ready to roll along with other supporting gear so I said what the hell.
Since I finished up Baldur’s Gate 2 recently, I’ve started thinking about Diablo 3 Season 23, which probably will start during the first week of April. I have a few ideas of what I want to do and decided to put some of that down on a post.
I decided to give Baldur’s Gate 2 a final swing using a neutral/evil type of party. Originally, the goal was to go completely evil, especially with the main character to fully exploit that side of the game. However, I ended up backtracking and utilizing a Chaotic Neutral main character, which would allow me more flexibility in terms of questing.
Despite the fact that I’ve written other articles on Baldur’s Gate 2, I’ve never yet written a full review of the game itself nor the update with the Enhanced Edition. I think it’s about time I put my thoughts down on the overall experience with this game not just with the Enhanced Edition but even the older version that I had.
So I hopped on the PTR today a few times to give the new Firebird revamp a spin along with checking out the new changes for ones Followers. Initially, I thought that the Tal Rasha 5 piece + Firebird 3 piece would be good but I did encounter issues as I upped the difficulty level.
Since I’m nearly done with another round of Baldur’s Gate 2 with a good aligned party using an elven female kensai/mage/thief as my main character (yes, she was modded via EEKeeper), I started toying around once more with how I could improve upon the existing NPCs and make them interesting through EEKeeper. So this blog introduces utilizing the Enhanced Edition updates along with EEKeeper where I only use a single PC (the main) and employ 5 other NPCs for an evil aligned party.
Blizzard just dropped the next PTR 2.7 update announcement and I’m actually pretty excited for once. It’s a pretty huge overhaul to the Follower system and it’s something that I had been calling for a while now. Here are my initial impressions of the upcoming patch.
COVID-19 evened out the playing field when it came to Blizzcon in the sense that most people are stuck at home or even trapped in snow (as in Texas). But the good part is that this situation has allowed Blizzard to open up Blizzcon 2021 as a free event that can be viewed through YouTube channels.
