I’ve played every Season of Diablo III, but this is the first time I’ve completed Champion.  I was super excited when I finally finished the last objective.  It took so many attempts!

There were times when I wanted to give up, because I got really frustrated.  I’m glad that I made myself keep trying.

This blog post is a continuation of the one titled “Champion – Halfway There (Season 13)“. You might want to check that one out before scrolling through this one.

One of the objectives in Champion requires players to kill Urzael, and another objective requires players to kill Azmodon. In the video above, I finally managed to kill them both! The work I did getting my Necromancer more Paragon points, along with the changes I made to her gear and the skills I was using, made this possible.

When I first started streaming on Twitch, I would play at 2:00 in the morning. Later, I decided to see if I could find a more “normal” time to stream. In the video above, I streamed in the afternoon. The result was a stream that included commentary from my cockatiels.

In the video above, my plan was to run some Bounties so I could get more Crafting materials. The goal was to clear more stuff out of my Stash by putting it into Kanai’s Cube. In doing so, I accidentally got the Level 20 Seasonal Cubist objective (which isn’t part of Champion).

In the video above, I still hadn’t realized that I was on the wrong difficulty level. Somewhere in the Nephalem Rift, I got stuck behind a doorway that was filled with Skeletal Mages (on my side) and a bunch of blue monsters on the other side. “Disco Party of the Damned”.

In the video above, I make another attempt at completing a Nephalem Rift on Torment X in 6 minutes or less. I’ve made a lot of changes to my gear, skills, and strategy – but am not quite fast enough yet. Eventually, if I just keep trying, I’ll get there. The question becomes: Can I do that before Season 13 ends?

Watch Diablo III Season 13 SSF – Destroyer of Rifts from Queenofhaiku on www.twitch.tv

The last objective I needed to complete was called “Destroyer of Rifts”. It required players to complete a Nephalem Rift on Torment X difficulty in 6 minutes or less. I had a hard time with this one – and was super excited when I completed it.

Destroyer of Rifts: Finish a level 70 Nephalem Rift on Torment X difficulty within 6 minutes.

I have now completed the Champion part of the Season Journey in Season 13. This is a big deal for me, because the farthest I’ve gotten before this Season was Slayer.
