Season Journey Chapter II (Season 8)

chapter-ii-completed-season-8I’ll be honest: I’ve been a slacker this Season.  It’s not because Season 8 wasn’t interesting, or because I’m getting tired of Diablo III.  Part of what is keeping me away from the game is that things have been very busy in real life lately.

The other thing keeping me from playing is my health.  If I’m not working – I’m sleeping.  Despite this, I managed to complete Chapter II of the Season Journey in Season 8.

Leveling the Jeweler

The main purpose of Covetous Shen, the Jeweler, is to help the player level up the jewels that they find while adventuring.  He can also remove jewels from a socket, which comes in handy.

Shen starts out at level 1.  Players can raise each crafter up to Level 12.

When I play in Adventure mode during a Season, I try and level up the Jeweler as fast as I can.  The downside of doing this so fast is that I miss out on the wonderful artwork that Blizzard created for each level of the Jeweler.  There are so many details to see!

Leveling the Blacksmith


The main purpose of Haedrig Eamon, the Blacksmith, is to craft armor and weapons for the player.  He starts out at Level 1.  Players can raise each crafter up to Level 12.

When I play in Adventure mode during a Season, I try and level up the Blacksmith as fast as I can (and I think other players do, too).  Don’t forget to take a second to admire the artwork that changes each time you level up the Blacksmith.  There are so many details to see!

Season Journey Chapter I (Season 8)

finished-chapter-1-season-journey-season-8Season 8 started shortly before BlizzCon 2016.  I decided to play a Hardcore Barbarian, so I used Season Rebirth on my Barbarian that I named Zena.  I originally created her for …I think it was Season 5.

I’m moving very slowly through Season 8 because of a ton of real world stuff that is getting in my way.  So far, I managed to complete Chapter I of the Season Journey.

Season Journey Wrap Up (Season 7)

unhallowed-essence-set-dungeon-mastery-attempt-season-7Season 7 was the first time I had the opportunity to try out the Champion part of the Season Journey.  I gave it my best try, but was unable to complete it.

Even so, this was the farthest I’ve gotten through the Season Journey.  I wish I could have done better – but I’m not disappointed in what I accomplished.

Season Journey Slayer (Season 7)

slayer-season-seven-completedPlayers who want to earn the special rewards that are offered during a Season need to complete the Season Journey Chapters I – IV.  It’s fine to stop after that if all you wanted was those rewards.

That being said, there is more to the Season Journey than the Chapters.  If you choose to continue, the next portion is called Slayer.  It provides extra challenges for players. Those who complete Slayer will unlock more parts of the Season Journey.

Diablo Book Reviews, Diablo III 0 comments on Hatred and Discipline by Micky Neilson

Hatred and Discipline by Micky Neilson

Hatred and Discipline is a short story that was released in 2012. It was part of something Blizzard was doing in the days before Diablo III was released. You can read Hatred and Discipline online (or download it as a PDF).

Blizzard revealed each of the five classes of playable characters in Diablo III, one by one, before the release of the game.  There was a “Gathering of the Heroes” page (which has since been taken down) where players could watch a class video, and learn more about a specific class.

There was a short story that accompanied the information about each of the classes.  Hatred and Discipline focuses on a Demon Hunter named Valla.

The artwork you see in this post came from the Battle.net website.  When Hatred and Discipline was posted, it used this artwork (but cropped it so that it focused on the Demon Hunter’s face.
