Yesterday Cool gifted me with the Reaper of Souls D3 expansion which includes the Treasure Goblin battle pet. They tend to be quite annoying in Diablo especially if they port away so I’m looking forward to having one by my side (for the most part).
They are available as part of the Digital and Collector’s versions but I must admit, the datamined version was kind of creepy looking. It was always impossible to get a good look at them in-game but here they look almost cute! You also get a Spectral Hound Minion to keep you company and some Transmogrified Gear for Diablo.
Over the past week, I’ve been tweaking my build since my wizard is now 60 and having played though all difficulty levels. I’m currently sitting on Paragon level 5 with four pieces of my Tal Rasha set (thanks to Cool).
We’re currently working on the materials for a hellfire ring as I toggle between monster power four and three – at least until I get used to playing again. So far I’ve managed to collect one of three items although it helps when I don’t fight the bosses while zoomed in (Z) the whole fight. I was wondering why I couldn’t see jack. Cool said I wasn’t even hitting the bosses at times which isn’t too surprising.
In my defence I only hit Z because I thought the show all loot button was set to that and not Alt. That’s what I get for playing 15mins at a time :P
After a long break, I finally made it to level 60 which qualifies me for Inferno difficulty in Diablo III. Although it took a while to get the hang of mouse, movement and keyboard functions, I still had fun re-watching all the cutscences from Act III and Act IV.
Cool was especially excited about me reaching 60 as this meant he could unload a lot of the gear he had been saving for me; not to mention freeing up all that space in his stash. This included the legendary Storm Crow headpiece and the wand/off-hand set Chantodo’s Will and Chantodo’s Force.
After that we even played though a little of Act I so I could see how the Paragon System works.
Here we are in Act II, with the tree I’m currently going with.
I seem to be dying with a lot more regularity in Hell mode and not just at regular intervals either. There was one instance I died 4 or 5 times in a row!!
As soon as I levelled to 56, I was excited to try my Diamond Shards rune. Looks impressive when I use it but I haven’t had to much of a chance to try it out in battle as I levelled just before I logged yesterday.
I have one question though, what are those balls around Coolidge’s neck? I hope they’re not some type of souvenir… although they look a bit too buffed to be that!
