This blog is part of a series that I am doing about my progress through Season 1 in Diablo III. I began the Season with a brand new Barbarian, whom I named Gurr. My primary goal was to get Gurr through all the content in Story Mode, which would hopefully get him to Level 70. If not, then my next goal was to make sure he hit Level 70. After that, the plan was to pick up as many Achievements as possible before the Season ended.
This blog features the Achievements that Gurr got in Act IV of Story Mode. I was playing on Normal difficulty (figuring I could go back and run through it at higher difficulties later if there was time). The screenshots you see in this blog were taken on September 6, 2014
The first Achievement that Gurr the Barbarian got in Act IV is one that has a funny name. I suspect that it was inspired by the scene in Army of Darkness where Ash is supposed to say the three words before grabbing the Book of the Dead, but he forgot the last one, so he gets it wrong.

Those are all the Achievements that Gurr the Barbarian got in his first trip through Act IV in Season 1 of Diablo III. One of the interesting things about Act IV was that it was the first time I’d gotten a character through it since the Reaper of Souls Expansion. Much of it was similar, but there were a few things that had changed. The next blog in this series will feature his adventure through Act V of Diablo III. Like Act IV, it was done on Normal difficulty.
