The Darkening of Tristram – Butcher Pet

The Darkening of Tristram is a special Anniversary event that becomes available in Diablo III every January.  The first time this event was released was on December 31, 2017.  It was the 20 year anniversary of the release of Diablo I.

Players who compete the event with a brand new, Level 1 character, will earn the Butcher Pet.  You must go through the Labyrinth, and slay The Dark Lord, in a solo game.

Season Journey Chapter IV (Season 12)

While I usually complete Chapter III of the Season Journey with little trouble, I tend to struggle with Chapter IV.  In Season 12, I was very motivated to complete Chapter IV because I really wanted the wings and the portrait frame.  My success was also due to my decision to play a Barbarian in Season 12.  I’ve spent more time playing Barbs than any other class.

Season Journey Chapter III (Season 12)

Chapter III of Season 12 went by really quickly.  The reason why is simple.  I was able to complete the majority of the Chapter III objectives long before I was able to unlock Chapter III.

Players can complete five objectives by finishing Bounties in each Act.  You have to complete one set of Bounties in order to complete an objective in Chapter I.  You also need to collect Legendary crafting materials in order to put things into the Horadric Cube – and the only way to get them is to complete a set of Bounties for each Act.

Season Journey Chapter II (Season 12)

After completing Chapter I of the Season Journey, I decided to push myself to finish Chapter II as quickly as possible.  Progress was made at a reasonably fast rate… until I hit Level 60.  For whatever reason, the grind from Level 60 to Level 70 took longer than I wanted it to.

One thing that helped speed up my progress through Chapter II was that I’d already completed a few of the objectives.

Blaze

This is Blaze.  I got him from a Menagerist Goblin during Season 8.  The flavor text for this pet says: A brave cavalryman who made a horrific pact with one of the prime evils to save the life of his father, Blaze will never die, so long as evil stalks the land.

Season Journey Chapter I (Season 12)

Season 12 began while I was taking lots of antibiotics and trying to recover from acute bacterial tonsillitis.  This left me with much less energy than I expected, and I was unable to start Season 12 right away.

After thinking it over, I decided to play a softcore Barbarian in Season 12.  I’ve spent more hours playing a Barbarian than playing any other class.  Playing a softcore character would allow me to make mistakes – without having to start over at level 1.

My goal for Season 12 is to get those lovely, dark, wings that are offered as one of the rewards.

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.
