Season 17 (The Season of Nightmares)

Season 17 of Diablo III is called “The Season of the Nightmares” because Seasonal players will benefit from the Set bonus provided by the Legacy of Nightmares. Blizzard describes it as the “no Set” set. Any Ancient Legendary that players find will be much more valuable this Season.

I decided to start Season 17 as a Hardcore Barbarian. This blog is about my progress so far. My main goal for this season is: Don’t die!

Always at the Doctor’s Office

The majority of the time I have gone outside in 2019 were in order to do two things. I was either going to get groceries, or I was headed for the doctor’s office.

To me, it feels like I’ve needed more trips to the doctor this year than typical. I haven’t had the energy to keep up with writing about it, so I’m just going to put the whole story into this blog post.

What the WoW Classic Stress Test was Like

To my surprise, I got invited to join the WoW Class Stress Test. The goal of stress tests are to break the server. Blizzard wanted as many people as possible to try to log into the game at the same time.

I am interested in playing WoW Classic when it launches. I started playing World of Warcraft back in “Vanilla”, and about a month or so before The Burning Crusade expansion launched.

Season 16 (Season of Grandeur) – Champion

After finishing the Slayer part of the Season Journey in Season 16, I decided to give Champion a try.

I streamed some of my progress on Twitch and put some the videos on YouTube. It felt like I was moving through the objectives slower than I wanted to, but I was having fun anyway.

Darkmoon Faire Achievements

The Darkmoon Faire is fun, but I rarely have found time to play in it. So, I made an effort to bring Meipo, my little Gnome Mage, to the Faire.

In this blog post, I have screenshots of all the Darkmoon Faire Achievements that she was able to earn. (Some will be added later as Meipo levels up and gains opportunity to earn more of them.)

Jen’s Lore Corner – Zayl and Humbart – Episode 013

Why I Started Using CBD

Those who know me well are aware that I have several chronic illnesses. Most of those illnesses cause pain, which can sometimes be unbearable.

There is no cure for any of my chronic illnesses, and I don’t want to take opioids for pain relief. After doing some research, I determined that CBD oil was a good choice for me.
