Two little birdies
Sleeping in a sunbeam
As though they are cats
Despite my best efforts, I didn’t have a whole lot of time to give to Day 3 of the TrialMan Challenge. As they say: Work Work, zug zug. I figure that playing for a shorter amount of time than anticipated is better than not playing at all.
When I stopped on Day 2, I left Nazuga hanging out with the Trolls of Sen’Jin Village. He was at level 6.
My brand new little Orc, Nazuga, started off Day 2 of the TrialMan Challenge at level 4. This time, I remembered to use the arrow keys to move him around (instead of clicking on the screen in front of him and wondering why he didn’t move).
However, I am still expecting his character sheet to pop up whenever I open his bag and am looking for it on the wrong side of the screen. More than a year of focusing on Diablo III has made its setup my “default mode”.
It has been a very long time since I played World of Warcraft. Part of the reason has to do with the amount of hours I spend working. The result was I had a limited amount of time that I could devote to playing video games. The other reason is that ever since the beta of Diablo III came out I’ve been spending my time in Sanctuary instead of Azeroth.
There are so many things about Diablo III that make me want to log in, play, and go for “just one more level”. At the same time, I also missed playing WoW. Perhaps all I needed was a compelling enough reason to get back into it. That reason appeared in the form of the TrialMan Challenge.
Success! Shawn and I achieved our goal of getting the characters that we rolled on Launch Night all the way through Normal difficulty before the one year anniversary of Diablo III (May 15, 2013). We actually managed to do it a couple of days before the anniversary.
Yeah, it took us a while. However, we were having fun and taking things at our own speed, as our schedules allowed. To us, it was super exciting to get those two characters through Normal before the anniversary of Diablo III. Here are some of the screenshots from the last part of Act IV that I thought were cool.
As you may have seen from my previous Diablo III blog, my Demon Hunter, ThirtySeven, and Shawn’s Barbarian, Smashez Stanzenfyr, where working their way through Act IV of Normal mode. Our goal was to get the two characters that we rolled on Launch Night through all of Normal difficulty before the one year anniversary of Diablo III. When we started this part of their adventure, Smashez was at level 31, and ThirtySeven was at level 32.
However, once again, I’ve managed to get my screenshots out of order. I wanted to include the cool stuff from Act IV anyway, so here’s some stuff that is kind of in random order. (I have since figured out a way to keep stuff from getting scrambled).
It’s been a while since my last Diablo III blog. Even so, I wanted to continue the “story” of Shawn’s Barbarian, Smashez Stanzenfyr, and my Demon Hunter, ThirtySeven.
Our goal was to get these two characters, that we rolled on Launch Night, through all of Normal difficulty on Diablo III before the one year anniversary of Diablo III (May 15, 2013). In the last blog, we got them through Act III, and were ready to begin Act IV. ThirtySeven was at level 32, and Smashez Stanzenfyr was at level 31.
Sometimes, the cockatiels in our flock actually do share with each other. The photo here shows Max and Morris sharing a swing (and being adorable).
