Act 1 finished \o/
Incidentally - what are Paragon points?

This really is like digital crack on the Switch! Just leave it in sleep mode and pick up where you left off.
It's my first time playing this properly (had a go at the demo years ago).
I blasted through act I over the weekend. Now in Act II I've upped the difficulty to Expert, as my wizard is just ripping through everything he encounters
I've just been playing a Demon Hunter in the Seasonal challenge. I've become death incarnate but I can be killed by a feather if its a little too prickly.
Some of the changes they made to sets are nuts. I do 14,000% damage bonus with Rain of Vengeance and for the next 10 seconds. Screw all survives that to Torment 10 and under.
Spent a scary ~260 hours on this game now. :S
Started Act 3 this morning and am up to level 50 something.
The difficulty feels about right (Expert I think) - I'm not dying often, but most of the enemies take quite a lot of time to kill...
Hit lvl70 earlier and now accruing Paragon points
I must be close to the end of chapter 5,so should finish the main story this week.
Assuming I want more Diablo, what's the best thing to do after the story? I seem to recall seeing a season thing and adventure mode..?
Adventure mode, hop around the acts/ waypoints, doing miniquests (bounties) to get stuff so you can higher levels of Greater rifts, or, whatever you fancy doing.
Seasons: time limited events (a few months) start afresh with speeded up leveling, with adventure mode unlocked from the start. Your chara converts to a normal non seasonal character afterwards, and the stuff in the seasonal stash gets posted to your non seasonal self.
I guess, if you just want 70s though I'm sure you could find someone here to boost you up, takes less 30 mins to get to 70 that way.

Even in single player you can level up characters (after the first one) pretty quickly. Grind out a level 25 gem of ease, use it in the cube to remove level requirements from a level 70 weapon, put a big ruby in it and go smash some things in torment 1. If you really want to go the whole hog, you can do the same with level 70 Cain's set and Crown of Leoric, get some delicious bonus xp.
Anyone going to start season 17? I randomly fired it up last night on a whim and then googled when the season starts and it's today!

I don't think I've even got any ancient items :/
Still, might just use haedrigs gift and level a different char for a change and the set bonus stuff.
What to roll?!
I'm going Sader, I would play Monk as usual but I know I will end up playing Wave of Light again for like the 7th season in a row.
Quite tempted by Barb as well though....
LoN season hmm er, think I'm giving this one a pass.
Rolled a Barb, haven't played one since before Reaper of Souls launched.
I thought about starting again and then picked up Dragons Dogma again. Think Iíve done all Iím going to on this game and will trade it in now.
Iím bound to get hooked all over again now Iíve said that.

T16 made the game challenging again. Still, as long as I stick to T15, there isn't really much to be afraid of.
I don't wanna deal with seasonal characters because I don't play much, but it's nice to be able to jump in very occasionally and just clear a couple rifts, hoping to get a better roll on my items.
Well, I caved and rebirthed a wiz. Had done the starter set, and was part way through finding gear for my desired Archon build (Chantodo + Vyr is now OP), then just lost the will to live, I've done it so many times. Ended up buying Grim Dawn on sale, and it's great fun.
Season 18 is bringing Morticks Brace back... if you care at all
@crashVoodoo whatís that and when does 18 hit?
August 23, and they're some OP (at the time) barb bracers, that got taken out a while ago. Theme for this season is a random buff that appears randomly, I guess like the Oculus Ring effect?
@GuybrushFreepwood Aug 23rd. Bracers were a barb item that made all runes of the WotB active. Was deemed OP and killed before it hit live. From PTR 2.2 or something.

Any suggestions for which class people will be going with?
Iíve only just got back into D3 - facked up season 17, but still had fun with it.
Just read the community post. All classes are getting a new set each over the coming themed seasons along with new legendary powers for quite a few older legendaries.
Might be dipping back in...
@crashVoodoo Yeah, it *does* seem like they're adding new stuff to D3 again, after having steadfastly ignored it for years. Almost like they're drumming up interest in the brand in the runup to Blizzcon 2019...
So I thought I'd try rolling a wizard for s18 since it was quite some time ago I last played one. I take it there's been some power creep? O_O

@janos what level is your wizard.
Though that's a way higher rift than I've ever managed on my crusader.

@janos - The damage numbers seemed to go up and up with each season. I've jumped back in on PC after a dabble on PS4 with a WD and a DH but slowly trying to gear up a Wiz just to get the gem levels for other characters.
I'm currently pootling along with a WD DoTting everything, still yet to hit 70.
Not sure what I'll eventually land, probs Jade but I'm just heading towards chicken cos it's very little input for maximum farming
That's some creep though, haven't played since s13 I think...

@GuybrushFreepwood About 650 paragon or so, I think. To be fair, I think it could be the Vyr/Chantodo set being way, way OP compared to other sets rather than just general power creep. The 100 run I did was with no ancient items apart from the weapon, no Caldesann's etc, plus my technique was probably pretty subpar as well. It's insanely powerful.
