As the game goes on the Acts do seem to take less and less time. When I first saw Ghom, the first boss in Act III, all I could think of was Jabba the Hutt.
He didn’t pose too much of a problem though. So I continued on until I worked my way to the Siegebreaker Assault Beast. Boy does he love to get nice and close to you, as he’s not afraid to pull you to him pretty frequently.
But this one had a happy ending too without too much trouble. Next came a creepy looking spider lady who was half succubus / half arachnid. She turned out to be a bit of a tease letting me fight her and then disappearing soon after.
Eventually, I managed to fight her too. But she was anti-climactic to say the least. The fight was over in ~10secs flat.
When you’re like me and tend to explore every last inch of the place before you proceed to other areas, it can be fairly time consuming but you can also find some nice bonuses like Treasure Goblins and lots of rare mobs. Those books are a nice XP bonus too :)
Eventually, I worked my way to the last boss, Azmodan. As expected he proved to be more of a challenge but with quite a lot of kiting around I managed to add him to my kill list.
The most interesting thing in this Act was actually the part that came after the last boss, once you’ve added the last soul to the soulstone. Without going into too much detail, I’ll just leave you with some pictures. Let me just say it was pretty awesome.
So my dear readers, it appears I have an open engagement with Heaven.
See you on the other side :)
