Yeah the shard thing is annoying.  I thankfully had 2 stacks built up from when I last played.  So I keep them in the stash until I need a couple, while also building up a new stack on my main bounty runner.

Wow, they really did patch in the fun.  Got 2 orange drops in first chapter!

Now that I got the ropes will probably retool my 60 witch doctor.  Do I need expansion to go above level 60?

I'm enjoying the seasonal ladder. I only got the crusader in the expansion to 39 and it was barely played, so to start one in seasonal and not have all the advantages of shared loot, cash and  artisan skills has kept it fresh and engaging.

You are correct Sir Ma'am! Plus, the enchantress is basically a must. Ditto, adventure mode.

FWIW I'm having fun on a new seasonal char. It is hard to describe how fantastic it is when every drop might be an upgrade, rather than 99.95% of stuff being automatic junk. Excite!

The trouble I'm having with this Seasonal stuff is I already ran through it again with 3 chars for the miracle patch (and it was worth it), but I'm not seeing anything really drawing me to do that AGAIN.

Maybe if Christine wants to, I'll gie it a go.

Also, can I just add, and I'm stopping myself from putting it all in caps :

The whole 'Shards need to be on the char you're online with now' is fucking, fucking, fucking lame as hell.  We used to not give a shit about that and now we have to.  ARG.

I've joined two public games to go rifting only to find my shards are on another character and I've effectively just joined to say 'hi' and look like an utter toolbag.


You can use them out of your stash, so just bank them there and use them from any character.

I think the confusion might be because in your original message you called them "shards" which are what you use to buy stuff from Kadala rather than calling them "rift tokens."

I see.

That shouldn't confuse anyone, since shards are on the paperdoll and shared between all chars.

But I'll take my telling.

So, the answers 'tough' then ?

You can split your stack of them and leave a bunch in the stash at least, so you don't end up having to switch characters.  Not really a full solution, but saves you from the worst case scenario.

Yeah, I get that, I just think it's retarded.  Why the Rift doesn't have a button on it for different rift levels so you can leave the things in your stash, I'll never know.

When you get the 'upgrade gem' choice, you can upgrade from your stash, ffs.

Anyway, couple of other questions

1 - Do you know if you can still upgrade gems once you socket them ?
2 - I really want to take Pierce the Veil, but I don't want to lose my Fetishes or the 3 extra dogs that I get (because they contribute to the MEGA DOG).  Am I right in thinking that I should stick with the 3 extra dogs, since I have TMF ?

It's not clear to me if you can upgrade a gem after it is socketed, so I haven't done that yet.
You can upgrade socketed gems.

Not sure if this has been mentioned or not, but it seems like you can get a gem that is on another char to drop again.

Friend was playing his WD and got a gem he has on his DH to drop again.

I was just about to post the same thing. I'm using a gem on my wizard and was given another of the same gem on my witch doctor.

I am still completely amazed that the game is as fun as it is right now when I remember how awful it was at pre-RoS. RoS made so many positive changes and the patches have only refined those changes. It's wonderful to play in its current form.

Push it as far as you can.  As long as you can still kill things in a reasonable amount of time, you're good.  Your first run should probably end on expert or master.

Finally broke through to t5 solo. I am not sure that I can do it multi yet as I currently have to rely on using unity with an undying follower but I have to say that the full Firebirds set bonus is somewhat bonkers.  My gear could be soo much better yet I was still doing 30mil + ticks on bosses (occasional 50 mil+) with Blizzard Apocalypse/Hydra.

Once the full set bonus triggers you can just walk away while they burn to death. Now I need to find me a decent Sun Keeper.

Also, has anyone else noticed that the rate that a socket rerolls into jewlery seems greatly reduced? I have spent 10s of millions crafting gems and paying to reroll for a socket all to no avail.

Ramlani's Gift, yeah I got one yesterday at the end of a greater Rift. I think I may have wasted it by using it on my Maximus, but oh well I'm sure ill get another eventually.

I wish they just put all the new legendaries on the regular loot tables.  Re-grinding 70 levels + a RROG + paragon levels just to get back where I was so I can look for new shit is a drag and a half.

I level a wizard to 70 in the season thingee, dinged last night.  I just played for two hours, did Act 1 and a Rift and got one legendary.  Is that normal?  I can't remember, been playing Marvel.

I'm pissed.  That drop rate fucking blows.  Unlucky?  Or do I have to dedicate weeks of my life to get anywhere?  I don't remember it being this bad.

It's a bit low, but if you meant Act 1 as in the campaign you were doing the least rewarding activity in the game. Bounties, Rifts, and Greater Rifts are where the higher legendary drop rates exist (and more champion/rare mobs, which also have higher legendary drop rates). You'll also want to make sure you're playing on Torment 1+ as soon as your character can handle it.

Quote
     Normal: 0% Legendary drop bonus, 25% bonus in Nephalem Rifts.
    Hard: 0% Legendary drop bonus, 25% bonus in Nephalem Rifts.
    Expert: 0% Legendary drop bonus, 25% bonus in Nephalem Rifts.
    Master: 0% Legendary drop bonus, 25% bonus in Nephalem Rifts.
    Torment 1: +15% Legendary drop bonus, +44% bonus in Nephalem Rifts.
    Torment 2: +32% Legendary drop bonus, +65% bonus in Nephalem Rifts.
    Torment 3: +52% Legendary drop bonus, +90% bonus in Nephalem Rifts.
    Torment 4: +75% Legendary drop bonus, +119% bonus in Nephalem Rifts.
    Torment 5: +101% Legendary drop bonus, +151% bonus in Nephalem Rifts.
    Torment 6: +131% Legendary drop bonus, +189% bonus in Nephalem Rifts.

Difficulty also influences whether your Cache at the end of a series of Bounties will have a legendary, up to a 100% chance at T6.

Sorry, I didn't give enough info.

I hit 70 last night, switched to Adventure mode.  Torment Difficulty.

Did all the Act 1 bounties, got a legendary hat while playing, which is my first lvl 70 legendary.  Tyrael's cache give me complete dick.  No blood stones, fucking nothing.
Did a rift, got a greater rift token.  Probably I should be happy about this. 

Just feels like the drop rate is obnoxiously low and given that I'm all in yellow, I'm dying to stuff I'm not used to dying to.
