For Season 22, I decided to switch things up a bit and play a Softcore Barbarian (instead of my usual Hardcore Barbarian). My hope is that this decision would make it quicker for me to complete the Season Journey.

Note: There are some flashing lights in this video.

In this video, I ran a Nephalem Rift on Normal Difficulty and leveled the Crafters to Level 10.

I started off by doing something I don’t normally do. I bought some armor and a shield from Squirt the Peddler before I started leveling up my Barbarian. Previously, I would start playing as is. I recommend buying armor before starting the leveling process on a new Seasonal character. It helped at lot!

Immediately after doing that, my Barbarian ran through a Nephalem Rift on Normal difficulty. I attempted to prioritize going after the bigger monsters (packs of blue ones, or yellow ones with minions). I learned last Season that doing so makes it quicker to complete the Rift and get the Rift Guardian.

I finished the Nephalem Rift at Level 5, and then finished leveling the Crafters to Level 10.

Objectives completed:

  • Begin Again: Complete a Nephalem Rift. Use the Nephalem Obelisk in town while in Adventure Mode to start a Nephalelm Rift.
  • Life With Meaning: Raise the Blacksmith to level 10. Leveling up the Blacksmith unlocks access to higher weapon and armor recipes.
  • Just a Hobby: Raise the Jeweler to level 10. Leveling up the Jeweler unlocks higher level gem recipes.
  • Watch Yourself: Raise the Mystic to level 10. Leveling up the Mystic enables her to enchant more item types and unlocks new Transmogrify looks.
