This blog is part of the series I am doing about my progress through Season 1 in Diablo III. I started this season with a brand new Barbarian named Gurr, and he ended up being my only Seasonal character. When the Season began, I had two goals. One was to get him all the way through the content in Story Mode. The other was to get him to hit Level 70.

Along the way, I wanted to see how many Achievements I could earn before Season 1 ended. This blog focuses on the Achievements that Gurr the Barbarian got in Act V of Season 1. I was playing on Normal difficulty (figuring I could raise the difficulty later on if there was still time). The screenshots you see in this blog were taken between September 6, and September 13, 2014.

This completes Gurr the Barbarian’s adventure through Act V (Normal difficulty) in Season 1.  One of my goals for Season 1 was to get a character all the way though the Story Mode content.  The second goal was to get a character to hit Level 70.  I did, eventually, achieve both goals.  Upcoming blogs will show Gurr’s progress to Level 70.  The screenshot below shows what Gurr was wearing at the end of Act V.  The weapon he is holding has been transmogrified to look like Malthael’s weapon.  It seemed fitting!
