From the writings of Abd Al-Hazir:
“Some devious little goblins have been
robbing our merchants! When pursued,
they simply open portals and disappear
with a most aggravating chuckle. The
peasantry seem to believe that the
Goblins serve a great demon lord
known as Greed and furthermore, that
their portals lead to Greed’s domain! A
ludicrous notion, truly.”
Watch your coin purse, adventurer.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from his abilities or animations but when you summon him, you can hear gold jingling. He will also throw handfuls of gold every now and then (which can’t be picked up) and got a real kick out of his death animation. It’s just what you’d expect if you’ve killed one in D3 (as seen towards the end of the video).
As usual, you can see all his abilities (Coin Toss, Wild Magic, Dodge, Magic Sword, Sear Magic and Portal) over my usual circuit of tamers in Pandaria. I forgot to change one of my teams during the Flowing battle but it still worked out – the result of not levelling any pets for several weeks, I guess.
Having both Wild Magic and Dodge seems pretty OP (especially during that one fight) but if you don’t mind his constant cackle, he’s a pretty fun pet to have around.
Just remember, keep and eye on your coin purse.
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
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!
