The first thing I did after beating Diablo on Normal Difficulty was work on some alts. Previously, I rolled a little Demon Hunter, named Zoeie. She is named after my main in WoW, who is named after my main in Meridian59, who was named after the last D&D character I ever played.
I did it! I finally did it! My Barbarian, Zeta, has officially killed Diablo (Normal difficulty). This makes me incredibly happy. There is sense of accomplishment that I feel after “finishing the game”. As always, I took screenshots of my journey.
When I stopped last time, Zeta was level 32, and at the Checkpoint for the Pinnacle of Heaven. It was about 6:00 in the morning, and I was just too tired to continue. Instead, I returned at a more normal time (well, “normal” for me), the next day.
Determined to get as close to the end of Level IV (Normal difficulty), in Diablo III, I continued on, (despite it being super early in the morning). My Barbarian, Zeta, is still somewhere in Act IV, but is now level 31.
At this point, I got a little lost. I ended up in the Blessed Chancel.
At around 2:30 in the morning, I decided to see if I could finish Act IV (Normal difficulty) in Diablo III with my Barbarian, Zeta. At around 4:30 in the morning, I began to realize that there was much more to Act IV than I’d anticipated. The battle now was to see how far I could get before falling asleep on my keyboard.
My Barbarian, Zeta, is finally in the very beginning part of Act IV (Normal Difficulty). I was so very excited when I got here that I was seriously considering just playing straight through to the end of the game.
Two things made me decide against that. One, it was five in the morning, and I hadn’t gone to bed yet. Two, I knew I would be recording an episode of Shattered Soulstone later that day, and I didn’t want to sound incoherent and delirious from lack of sleep.
Around 2:30 in the morning, I decided to see if I could finish off Act IV (Normal difficulty) in Diablo III. After all, I’ve been told that Act IV is “short”. Yeah… not so much. I didn’t finish Act IV this time, but, I did pick up more achievements and I got to do and see parts of the game I’d never experienced before.
I finally completed Act III, (on Normal Difficulty). My Barbarian, Zeta, is my highest level character. This made me feel like I had actually accomplished something!
In my previous Diablo III blog, my Barbarian, Zeta, had just hit Level 29. She was nearly at the end of Act III in Normal Difficulty. Here are some screenshots of what she did in between then, and when she hit Level 30.
This morning, I decided to see if I could get my Barbarian, Zeta, through the last part of Act III. Things went really well!
I’m picking up this blog where the previous one left off. My Barbarian, Zeta, is somewhere in Act IV (Normal Difficulty) in Diablo III. She is still at level 30.
