Season Journey Chapter IV (Season 11)

Qiwoot is a hardcore Monk that I started Season 11 with.  As you can see in the screenshot above, he obtained two Haedrig’s Gifts – which means he has four pieces of the Raiment of a Thousand Storms set.

Sadly, Qiwoot didn’t make it through Season 11.  At the time I am writing this, there are a few more days left in Season 11.  If I try to complete Chapter IV, it cannot be with Qiwoot.

Season Journey Chapter III (Season 11)

Qiwoot is a hardcore Monk that found the Horadric Hamburger in Whimsydale, which he visited while he was working through Chapter II of the Season Journey.  He is wearing the two pieces of the Raiment of a Thousand Storms set that he earned by completing Chapter II.

In this blog, I focus on Qiwoot’s adventure through Chapter III of the Season Journey.  It went much faster than the previous Chapters, mostly because I was able to complete many of the objectives long before I unlocked Chapter III.

Whimsydale

Whimsydale is the most colorful place in all of Diablo III.  It’s got rainbows, and happy clouds. You can find at least one diabolic-yet-cute piñata in there somewhere.  There are pastel colored ponies and teddy bears that…. want to kill you.

When I first heard about Whimsydale, I thought it was the dumbest thing ever.  How could something so, well, whimsical be part of Diablo III?  The whole idea felt wrong to me.  Later, after visiting Whimsydale, I changed my opinion.  I now find it to be very amusing.

Season Journey Chapter II (Season 11)

I’m still moving slowly through Season 11.  For some reason, the gap between hitting Level 50, and hitting Level 70, takes longer than I’d like it to.

Part of the problem is that I’ve been waiting to play Diablo III until after my paid writing work is completed.  I end up playing while tired, and since my Monk is hardcore, I feel the need to be very careful so Qiwoot will stay alive for as long as possible.

Season Journey Chapter I (Season 11)

I’m slowly working my way through Season 11.  This time around, I selected a Monk because the real world is making me want to punch things.

I already had a soft core female Monk, so I picked a hard core male Monk for Season 11.  It’s nice to get a chance to really listen to all the different voice actors.

Champion’s Collection Achievement

Diablo III has a set of three Achievements that can be earned by killing a certain number of Champion monsters.  The three Achievements in this set are called “The Takedown”, “Not So Tough Now”, and “Champion’s Collection”.

Champion monsters are blue (and typically come in packs of three or more).  If you play Diablo III long enough, you will eventually earn all three of the Achievements in this set.  Just keep going after the champion packs!

A Rare Phenomenon Achievement

A Rare Phenomenon is the third part of a series of Achievements.  Each of the three requires players to kill a certain number of the Rare enemies that are on the list.  Keep playing Diablo III, and you will eventually earn all three of these Achievements.

Rare monsters are yellow and are tougher to kill than the blue Champion monsters.  They always have minions linked to them (which are harder to kill then the regular versions of those type of monsters).

Slowly Starting Season 11

Season 11 of Diablo III started on July 20, 2017.  This one is being called the “Season of the Necromancer” because it is the first Season after the Rise of the Necromancer Pack became available.  I was lucky enough to be included in the Necromancer beta – but I haven’t bought the pack yet.  (I’ll explain more about that later in this blog post.)

I tend to wait a day or two before jumping into a new Season because I’m still traumatized from the difficulty we all had on Launch Day of Diablo III.  There is a reason why my first Diablo III character, a Demon Hunter, was named ThirtySeven.  I like to give the game some space and start a few days later, in the hopes of avoiding lag.
