Season 18 (Season of the Triune) – Cuddle Bear Rift

In a previous blog post about Season 18 of Diablo III, I mentioned that I was struggling to stream on Twitch. Part of the problem is that I use a Mac, which requires additional software “workarounds” if I want to stream.

I don’t always have the energy to stream, and having to fight with Twitch before I can even start is discouraging. Fortunately, there are other ways to record my game play and to make videos of it.

Season 18 (Season of the Triune) – Struggling to Stream

The theme for Season 18 of Diablo III is: The Season of the Triune. It began on August 23, 2019. I’m playing a Hardcore Barbarian (again) because the “free set” is The Legacy of Raekor and I haven’t spent much time using it.

My intent was to stream my progress through Season 18, every day, if possible. Unfortunately, the stream I did on Twitch this morning lagged terribly and was so unusable that I decided to delete it.

Season 17 (Season of Nightmares) – Champion

Season 17 was coming to an end, and I wasn’t done with it yet! My next goal was to complete the Champion part of the Season Journey. I wasn’t able to complete this goal – or the Season Journey. It was really fun while it lasted, and I made a lot of progress with non-seasonal Achievements.

Season 17 (Season of Nightmares) How to Master a Set Dungeon

The Season Journey requires players to complete a Set Dungeon, and to Master a Set Dungeon. It doesn’t necessarily have to be the same one, and each class has four to choose from.

I’m playing a Barbarian in Season 17, and was getting really frustrated with the Set Dungeons. The best piece of advice I can give you is to keep trying.

Lachdanan’s Stormshield

Lachdanan’s Stormshield is a cosmetic item that can be found in Diablo III. There is lore attached to the character of Lachdanan, but you don’t actually need to know it in order to pick up his shield and transmogrify a shield that your character, or your character’s follower, can use.

To find this item, you must start by going to Leoric’s Manor.

Season 17 (Season of Nightmares) Set Dungeon

I am playing a Hardcore Barbarian in Season 17. For the most part, I am having fun. The one thing holding me back from making progress was the Season Journey requirement to complete a Set Dungeon.

This proved to be a very difficult task for me. In this blog post, I share the strategy I used when I realized I was unable to complete the Set Dungeon that corresponded with Season 17’s “freebie set”.

Season 17 (Season of Nightmares) – Slayer

Slayer was a bit difficult for me, especially since I was playing a Hardcore Barbarian. I had to be really careful about the choices I made, or she would be dead and I’d have to level up a new character.

I had only completed two Slayer objectives by the time I started working on it. The Set Dungeon was frustratingly difficult. So, I skipped it and started working on objectives from upcoming parts of the Season Journey.

UPDATE: I was eventually, after many attempts, able to complete the Raekor’s Set Dungeon. This was the last thing I needed to do to finish the Slayer part of the Season Journey.

Season 17 (Season of Nightmares) – Chapter IV Completed

I decided to play a Hardcore Barbarian in Season 17, and felt like my progress was moving very slowly. Things sped up dramatically after I acquired more Ancient items.

The special thing about Season 17 is the Community buff:

While you have no Set bonuses equipped every Ancient item you have equipped increases your damage dealt by 750% and reduces your damage taken by half.
