Star Wars: The Last Command – by Timothy Zahn

Star Wars: The Last Command is the third book in a series that has been referred to as “The Thrawn Trilogy”.  The series is not considered to be cannon, which is a shame, because it is an excellent story.

I would highly recommend that people who are interested in this book take the time to read the first two parts of the trilogy before beginning Star Wars: The Last Command.  The entire trilogy reads like one, big, story.  You will miss out on some very important information if you skipped right to the third book.

You’re Not the Boss of Me Achievement

You’re Not the Boss of Me: Kill the following Nephalem Rift bosses.

There is an Achievement in Diablo III called “You’re Not the Boss of Me”.  I find the name amusing.  It sounds like something a little kid would say to a bossy friend.

This Achievement is referring to the bosses in the Nephalem Rifts.  Players that manage to kill off all of the Nephalem Rift bosses that are on the list will earn the Achievement.  I earned it on April 26, 2015, during Season 3.

Stamp the Champs Achievement

Stamp The Champs: Kill a champion of all of the following types.

The Stamp the Champs Achievement is a Career Achievement that I happened to earn during Season 3. I completed the Achievement in Hard difficulty and on my Seasonal Crusader. However, it can be earned on any character, at any level of difficulty.

This Achievement can be found in your Career Achievement board under the category called Challenges. It is an Act V Achievement, but I’m pretty sure that I did at least some of it while I was in Nephalam Rifts. You have to kill off Champion packs of monsters that typically appear in Act V in Story Mode.

Diablo III, Events/Bounties 2 comments on The Queen’s Dessert

The Queen’s Dessert

The Queen’s Dessert is an event in Diablo III (that can also come up as a random Bounty).  The first time I encountered this event was during Season 3.  I’m not entirely certain if this new event is only accessible for Seasonal characters, or whether it has been added to the non-season part of the game as well.

It is one of a few new events that require a player to search for a specific number of targets.  In The Queen’s Dessert event, the player needs to destroy 6 Royal Cocoons and slay the spiders that are guarding each Royal Cocoon.  The screenshots you see in this blog were taken on April 11, 2015.

Diablo Game Play, Diablo III 0 comments on Not the Cow Level

Not the Cow Level

Diablo III celebrated its third anniversary with a pun filled event that took the “there is no cow level” concept and ran with it. It was announced in a blog post titled Debunking the Cowspiracy which advised citizens of Sanctuary to stay calm… the rumors of an invasion of “homicidal heifers” was nothing more than a clever hoax.

The special event ran from May 15 through May 21, 2015. It occurred while Season 3 was live, but was not limited to seasonal play. All players had the chance to find a cow-like “goblin” (for lack of a better term) that would spawn a portal into the “Not the Cow Level”. Personally, I found this event to be hysterically funny! The screenshots you see in this blog were taken on May 17, 2015.

Pre-Expansion Events, World of Warcraft 0 comments on Zombie Infestation

Zombie Infestation

In October of 2008, there was a world event in World of Warcraft that has since been referred to as the “Zombie Infestation” or the “Zombie Plague”. It appeared after patch 3.0.2 and preceded the Wrath of the Lich King expansion.  I’ll leave you to read the information I linked to on WoW Wiki if you would like to see some more detailed information about this world event.
