I think I ruined the game for myself with the Onslaught character.  All of my other characters feel so slow now it's almost unbearable.

I cleared Uber Lab on my Vortex char the other day on the first try; the last two Ascendancy nodes gave me freeze/chill immunity which really helps my clear speed. Working my way through mid-tier maps now and finally getting a handle on how Delve shit works.

I tried uber on my character. It's the traps that get me every time. I don't have enough patience.

I don't know if you spec'd it, but I love the pops from Profane Bloom.  So satisfying. awesome, for real

Taking a Stone Golem with you in the lab is very helpful.  Sometimes I grab an extra health pot as well and always make sure I have Bleed removal.  I still die in there sometimes though, hate the lab, worst part of the game by far for me.

Finally managed to hit 97 in a Pure Breach rotation.  The xp is just insane.  I'll probably just finish going for 100 doing those.

It's one thing to read about it and another to experience it firsthand.  Been reading about Pure Breachstones all league long, but they are definitely out of whack.  Went from 97-98 in a few hours just doing Breach rotations...

Just hit 90 on my first toon (Necro). I was paranoid about deaths and ended up running rare maps only and often leaving the unique boss the closer I got to 90. Ignored Temple, ignored Delve, the only thing I would do is the Cartographer map quests. Launched skeles and zombies at mobs and hung back/abused shield charge to escape AOE.

Right now I'm pushing my marauder to 88 and expect lots of tear on the way to 90.

Hit 99 today.  It took 9 Pure Breach rotations which is 54 Breaches.  Sounds like a lot, but each Breach only takes just over 3 minutes.  If you include some time for setting up the groups it only took about 3.5 hours to go from 98 to 99.  From what I understand it takes 17 rotations or 101 Breaches to get to 100 from 99.  I haven't decided if I'm going to do that yet or not, definitely taking a break from lvling for a bit to do some other stuff.  I think I'll end up completing the End Game Grind Challenge by hitting Delve 600 and 60 Safehouses anyways, so getting to 100 may not even be necessary.  I'll see where I'm at towards the end of the league.

Clearing T12 and T13 maps with relative easy, but I'm barely breaking even in terms of sustaining maps. Still trying to get down to deeper delves to find cool shit there.

Looking for some maps to fill out my Atlas; here are the ones I need:
Tier 3: Graveyard
Tier 5: City Square, Mausoleum, Underground Sea
Tier 6: Fields
Tier 8: Infested Valley, Laboratory, Sepulchre
Tier 9: Arena, Scriptorium, Vault, Waste Pool
Tier 10: Coves, Estuary, Leyline, Pit, Plateau, Spider Forest

If anyone has any spare let me know what you'd like for them.

Well I made it through normal difficulty without too much trouble. Whenever I came across something too hard I just went off and outleveled it. So I was level 50 when I did normal Labyrinth and 52 by the time I got across the Cathedral Roof. Fun! My resists are all in the 40s and 50s now though so hopefully better resist equipment starts to drop or my build points me at some resist passives.

It might be time to make a new character and try out the league.

If you haven't killed Kitava yet, you're about to lose 30% to all resistances. Happens again after Act 10. If you join us in Betrayal we can twink you easier.

I should really join the guild as I have 5 tabs of uniques that I'm about to sort and vend or sell.

I was pushing the necro to 91 to get the last +5 life that I can easily reach. Running T13/14/15 maps and ignoring bosses unless they were on the open map. At 98% I got blown up and sent backwards in XP. It's frustrating, especially the XP penalty and I'm thinking I might run to 94 for the last easy gem slot and leave it there.

I really dislike the Atlas system, it's just a cock block. I'd prefer it to be a case of unlock the map once instead of waiting for RNG maps.

I wish they'd at least change it to something like White Keys, Yellow Keys, Red Keys, and T16 Keys to be able to run the equivalent maps.  Such a bad feeling when I have a bunch of T14 maps, but not the exact one needed to complete a Daily Master Mission.

I agree. I rarely end up with duplicates of every map, so when a map comes up as a daily it's almost one I've got in stock. The keys things would be a nice idea; another option would be for Zana to sell all maps below X tier, where X is the last one you've a) completed all of on the Atlas or b) done the Shaper/Elder quest for. Something to make you have to find them once, but not keep finding them over and over. Hell, just make those "reforge this map into another one of the same tier" orbs as common as Alterations.

Edit: What's your IGN Setanta? Mine is @Rendakor, or KiraShugo for the character I'm currently playing.

Winter orb is stupid. I don't think I've leveled this fast on any character with just a tabula.

The problem with it is the targeting.  You'll find at times it's targeting trash mobs when you want to target a Syndicate member or boss.

Well recovering my resists after the Kitava battle was easy enough. I just fiddled with enchantments and maxed out fire and lightning. Cold is only at 58 but I've got a toggle spell that will bring it up to 75 if I need it.

As fun as it is with Winter Orb and just running around and everything dying. I just can't drum up the interest in finishing act 10 and actually mapping.

So, I got through Act 10 and starting doing end game stuff. So, what do people typically do? Map? Mine? Other shit?

Is there anyway to look decent without spending a ton of money in the shop? I did end up buying some stash tabs and they are pretty great. Makes me want to buy a tab for every specific thing.

Gearing up is a bit daunting. I was following a guide for my build, and I'm pretty comfortable with the passive tree now. However, the guide gets a bit weird with all of the rare crafting stuff (and it's not done, bleh).

I'm having the same problem equipping myself. The arc witch thread is 500 pages long but I can't find an equipment manual  anywhere. Oh well. I'm in Act 8 and still doing OK. I found an amazing unique ring that leeches mass quantities of health and mana but if I use it, it's the only ring I can wear. It makes me harder to kill but costs me about 20% of my dps.

At endgame I mostly focus on maps, doing the mine occasionally when my sulfite fills up. Others pursue the mine more seriously, buying scarabs to put Niko in maps and only mapping for that reason. You also have dailies that you can see on your atlas; this reddit post tells you what each icon means. I typically focus on trying to complete as much of the Atlas as possible, always getting the bonus, which makes it more likely for higher tier maps to drop. Also I run the safehouses whenever they're up, without putting a lot of effort into getting the right guys into the right places.
