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.

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.

Season 17 (The Season of Nightmares) – Done With Chapter III

I’ve been working my way through the Season Journey in Season 17 – The Season of Nightmares. One cool thing about this Season is that players could scroll through the entire Season Journey and see every objective.

By the time I completed Chapter I and Chapter II, I had finished a big part of Chapter III. Having a clear idea of the progress I made, and what I still needed to do, really made a difference in my outlook.

Season 17 (The Season of Nightmares) – to Level 70

This season, I decided to play a Hardcore Barbarian. In general, I find that leveling up while playing solo can be tedious. It can get pretty intense in Hardcore if you aren’t careful.

I completed my first goal – to hit Level 50. My next goal was to get my Barbarian to Level 70.
