Is the idea with the numlock trick/Rathmas that its a better idea to have as many mages as possible rather than more powerful ones?

Yeah, you need to have 4 mages out for full 6pc buff so keeping this going is a priority.

Ideally, you'd have Reapers Wraps to help with essence generation which should make spamming mages spawned from more essence a more frequent thing.

I told myself I would play D3 again when the new season started, but PUBG has its claws in really deep right now.

Everyone I normally play D3 with is addicted to it too.

Ah sweet. Im building towards a setup I found that utilizes Rathmas and the Jesseth(?) shield/scythe combo mainly as I go the shield off of Kadala.

Do this week's CR in a group of 2 or more. It's much easier and you still get the cache if you beat the time as a group.

Notice how the Monk is using gear with Str on it! Even these builds defy loot 2.0. There's even a legacy witching hour!

I'm just waiting for a Blackthornes build to be used for Challenge Rifts and the rift has no Desecrator, Molten, or Plagued elites. That would be the ultimate troll CR.

The only way the monk in this weeks challenge makes sense, is if it was powerleveled by someone without a dexterity class, and they just threw on the random monk set bits they'd collected, and whatever other random gear they had spare. It's incredibly awful.

I don't know how they're doing these, but I wish there was more logic to it. Also give us some super strong augmented everything character and a grift 80 or something too, everything so far seems to be quite low in the rift level, even if the character in question isn't totally awful.

Yeah, it's definitely someone who got an alt character powerleveled and the player just threw on what ever the had from a Str toon (probably Barb judging by the swords).

It would be nice to get a few nostalgia builds like a condemn saders.

The clannies carried me from 1 through to P100-ish and completed chapter 4 in the process tonight. The gear is OK... got the key leg powers in the cube that I need now (obsidian for full Vengeance uptime, Dawn, and broken crown for gem farming.

Found two Yangs... stupidly wasted a gift on the first one. Got a DML and Hunter's Wrath too. Need to improve on some gear but it's a good start for HC.

Enjoying the rathmas set,managed an 80gr so far with fairly average gear and probably stick with it this season, I've got a second necro running the meta trag's build but really havn't enjoyed it. I might edit the build for that spastic speedfarming build if I have the gear in my stash. and It's not like I'm pushing for rank1 anyway.

Dropped a decent Ancient Jesseth scythe tonight... has 7% IAS on it and managed to get 9% Damage on it before enchanting costs hit 5.6mil.

Quite stoked! Got my sheet dps over 1mil. In a good position for GR70 now. I need to stick to one account... splitting my time between two is annoying sometimes.

So far this season I've only been playing the rathmas set (face roll with no defensive CD's) and the blood mage speed farm.

Did a 90 solo this morning and have picked up a few more primal goodies, one of which is a very well rolled Krysbin's
Still don't have full ancients or any augments and sitting at around 710 para with 1.5m sheet damage.

Gonna have to tweak my Rathma build a bit methinks...



http://www.diablofans.com/builds/93665- ... uls-gr-100

I've always complained about Rathma being squish and it seems good old Tony Evans has sorted that out... the best part is that these are the gems I've stuck with from the start.

if I don't get it done tonight (I won't be home till 11pm or so) I'll get on it tomorrow night after work if no one else gets to it first, (Though I'll see if Mythor can do it before then)

The only pending one has already been accepted, just waiting on whoever it was to login I think. For some reason I still can't see the names of people applying. BLIND APPROVAL, YAYYYYYYY! :)

Did my GR70 solo this morning so yay for chance for Primals!

Did it in about 8min too so I think I might try for 75 solo... would save me having to do Avarice or Boss Mode.

Also dropped a decent ancient Rileenas last night... trying to get a working Inarius build going. Seems to be ok for T13 farming but I'll need to level up my gems first.

Well managed my GR75 solo earlier. 2 conquests down.

Can't decide whether to do Avarice or Boss mode now.

Got a useable compass rose too which might make my Rathma build a little less squishy.

i should really make a character, at least for the free set and pet... Mugsy can I get my seasonal stand in the corner while you kill things one night soon? :P

Yeah, that's not a problem... PM when you see me in game... or msg here if you want to know if I'll be home that night.

Finished Conqueror now. Just 3 more things to do for Guardian...

- kill Urzael in 20sec
- T13 rift in 4min
- cube another 17 items

Lets see if how my slow arse necro is gonna do any of this!

Re: Diablo III

Posted: 06 Aug 2017, 17:44

Done Urzael and the T13 rift in 4min... now just need to cube 16 items... one of which has to be that bloody evol ring that won't drop a second time!

Re: Diablo III

Posted: 06 Aug 2017, 22:15
by Mugsy
Got that bloody evol ring via the gambling with a lvl4 toon trick after about 3k shards... then dropped the evol ring 2 or 3 GRs later!

Guardian is done now at least. Gonna keep farming and get me an ancient or Primal Trag'oul's corroded fang and try to get a Bloodlancer build going.
