I'm having so much fun with the Thorns build again I'm loathe to try one of the other armor sets. Any other Crusaders done Roland's or the Light set and how do you feel they compare?

I really need to run a bunch of bounties and suck legendary powers out of a lot of shit in my inventory. Finding out that running a T10 bounty gives you 10 of each component really made it not as terrible as when I tried at Torment 3 or 4 for speed runs earlier.

2.4.1 is the patch for Season 6, unfortunately.

Eh, aren't patches typically larger updates with actual content? I thought 2.4.1 was mostly horseshit.

Sorry, should have included a link.  Source

We won't be dropping the live 2.4.1 patch mid-season. The PTR patch will most likely be happening while Season 5 is still active, but that of course won't affect any of your Season 5 heroes.

Any idea if the season rewards for the set  dungeons (pennants / wings) will carry over from season to season, or will if they  are likely to change each season?  What I mean is, if I am unable to do ALL of the set dungeons this season, will i miss out on those rewards, or do you think they will keep them between one season and the next (so i can say, complete Witchdoctor and Crusader in season 5, and then  Monk / DH in 6, and maybe eventually get all 6 done for the wings by season 7)

There will probably be rewards next season, but they'll be different. Like the pet and the portrait frames.

The set dungeons and their rewards are not related to seasons.  They're a permanent part of the regular game so your progress will persist through different seasons and the pennants/wings will always be available.

Edit to clarify:  There are a few seasonal achievements tied to set dungeons, but those of course are separate and have no bearing on the completion rewards.

Finally got my stash tab, woo. I hate grinding gems, but I hate even more that a 60% upgrade chance happens at 5 or 6 gem-levels away from the dungeon-level you're running.

I don't think anyone knows for sure, but I've heard mid-April.

If you want to tool around on a 70 I can probably PL you next week in about 30 minutes.

Thanks for the offer, but I may be out of town next week. Mid-April? That's pretty close.

I have the 70 hardcore (I can dooo theeees), the three 65 gems (easy.  ish.) and another conquest to go for the next step in the journey.

To which I go "fuck".  Because, yeah, set dungeons.  Probably the next "easiest" conquest.

Been playing my monk a fair bit and I'm still searching for that perfect exploding fist fist weapon, but browsing the patch notes seems like it's going to be even better times for my build.  Flow of Eternity is getting an upgraded damage to seven sided, Ulianas getting a new Double damage to seven sided and increased explody fists.  Add all that double damage together and running around exploding fists with seven sided strike is going to be even more fun.

I was using nothing this season! Yeah, I am sure his Paragon 3500 wasn't botted at all. Fuck him and the rest of his shitstain guildies. Suck it.

I saw that this morning and thought it was pretty funny.

I have 3 coworkers that play and one of them bots. He said he hasn't logged in for a few weeks though but I would laugh my ass off if he gets banned.

I love how the "...this season!" means he feels that if he got away with it in previous seasons he should have gotten a pass. Nope, they aggregate and mass ban at once, they don't reset the counter just because a season starts.

Streamers who were widely considered to have been botting, thus having ridiculously high paragon levels. There's been a lot of botting going on this season apparently and a fair amount of very vocal unhappiness with Blizzard for allowing it to happen unfettered. Blizzard finally got round to fettering.

So far they've just gone for the botters too, not TurboHUD users, which I am glad about. Thud fixes their shitty UI, and is so widely used that I hope they do the same as they've done with WoW over the years and incorporate the best bits of it into the default UI.

Yeah definitely, lets you see mobs - and especially elite packs - much more easily and earlier than without it. That and the proper buff icons that you can customise so that you can see things like CoE properly for instance. After playing with it you really notice the difference without it. Personally I decided that if they ban people for using it then that'll just be me done with D3.

The season is "Ending Soon" according to the brief flash before battlenet client restarted and threw me into a 25+ queue. Guess I need to finish that any damned set dungeon soon.

I am a Dapper Dan man!

Finished my 8th set dungeon with a timely assist from soulflame, so I got my stash tab. Now I am trying to burn through the Guardian level of the Season Journey.  I have 2 already done, and am 1 legendary gem level from a third. Working on a hardcore character to 70 now. Have to play through story mode, which is sort of interesting now that I know the game a lot better. Also has the fun of finding new blue upgrades all over again. If anyone cares to join me, look me up online.

It is amusing how all the goodies you crammed into your stash instantly become trash when the season ends.

Looking forward to season 6, but I will be out of the house when the season starts, so I will be behind Heartbreak
