Every Diablo season, our small group bands together to take on a hardcore weekend of gaming, grinding our way through greater rifts and everything that Diablo has to offer.
Although we don’t usually get too far in terms of greater rifts, we have a ton of fun, which is what it’s all about.
We have been gaming together since high school, and now that everybody is finishing up university and preparing for their careers, we don’t have a lot of time to enjoy gaming weekends like we used to.
This is our throwback to the good ol’ days!
And I’m sure many others will join the journey…
After spending the past two weeks busting our butts to ensure that we can get a full weekend of free time, we’re finally ready for D-day. Ol’Robby and I grabbed some Wingstop at around 4 PM EST, with around 4 hours left.
At this point, I don’t really know what I’m going to be playing, it’s probably going to be either Demon Hunter or Monk.
6:25 PM – With our Discord chat set up, bottles of water and snacks, we’re ready to go!
7:20 PM – MAX HYPE! Make sure you tune into our stream!
7:40 PM – I have decided to play Monk.
7:45 PM – Nevermind… Demon Hunter.
8:00 PM – MONK!
Road to 70
10:16 PM – Level 56! We’re moving on up there.
11:00 PM – Level 70! Onto great things!
Entering Greater Rifts
3:41 AM – Finished my 6 set piece!
Ol’Robby crashed, seems like everybody else is going to bed too! I’ll keep grinding, but nothing interesting will happen until tomorrow I suppose.
6:11 AM – Still truckin’ along with Angrymeatball… Have all best in slot gear, we’re at G40’s now!
After a nice, short sleep, we hopped back onto Diablo and started spamming Greater & Normal rifts. A few of us are doing some solo greater rift pushing, luckily I got some pretty ridiculous gear and am pushing pretty far! We have also powerleveled a ton of people so far, sharing a little bit of the wealth!
Tonight we’re hoping on patching up Ol’Robby’s gear, as well as gearing up our new protagonist, Necro.
Managed to get some ridiculous drops, letting me push a little bit further in solo GRs!
The final day of our journey!
We spent the entire day pretty much spamming greater rifts, working on getting Ol’Robby geared up. He had some TERRIBLE luck. Most of our characters are exactly where we wanted them to be, until I realized that I’ve been salvaging a ton of useful things throughout the day. Oh well!
Paragon 500! Whoop whoop!
That pretty much wraps up the most active part of our Diablo journey! We had a lot of fun, got to catch up with eachother, and learned a lot that we will be able to apply to in future season. Personally, this was the first time I’ve ever been in the top 500 after release, so it was pretty exciting for me. Although there wasn’t much content in this article, hopefully it’s cool to see what we’re doing and how we’re progressing!
