This is Emerald Serpent. I got this pet by completing Chapters I – IV of the Season Journey in Diablo III during Season 23. The flavor text for this pet says: A luminous being, not to be judged by his size.Continue Reading “Emerald Serpent”
Sanctuary was created by an angel named Inarius, a demon named Lilith, and a group of renegade angels and demons who wanted to opt-out of the Eternal Conflict.
For a while, they believed they were safe. They thought that Sanctuary was hidden from both the angels and the demons. But, what happened in Sanctuary didn’t stay in Sanctuary.Continue Reading “What Happened in Sanctuary…”
The screenshot above is from Diablo III: Reaper of Souls. It caught my attention because I took it just as the light was changing in the game. The result was a washed-out scene that might make an interesting album cover.Continue Reading “Deleting Diablo III Screenshots”
The lore of the Diablo series of video games and books makes it clear that there are Demons that originate in the Burning Hells. While many are minions, there are seven of them that are noteworthy.
The three Prime Evils and the four Lesser Evils are constantly battling with each other in an effort to take over more land and minions. Each one wants to become the most powerful Lord of the Burning Hells.
Here is a brief look at who each of these very important demons are.Continue Reading “Lore of the Prime Evils and Lesser Evils”
The Darkening of Tristram is an event in Diablo III that takes place in January. There are several Achievements that a player can earn that are connected to the event.
The Achievement called I Sense A Soul In Search Of Answers involves collecting Cultist Pages. Players need to kill off a specific type of Cultist NPCs (Non-Player Characters) until they obtain all the pages.
Protector of Tristram is the third in a series of Achievements that players can earn during The Darkening of Tristram event. To earn it, you must kill all of the unique monsters from the Labyrinth. (In other words, kill every monster on the list).
I was unable to complete this series of Achievements the first time The Darkening of Tristram was added to the game. Fortunately, these Achievements “stick” and I was able to finish the series the next year. I simply picked up where I left off.
The Darkening of Tristram is a special Anniversary event that becomes available in Diablo III every January. The first time the event was released was on December 31, 2017. It was the 20 year anniversary of Diablo I.
There are several Achievements that players can earn in The Darkening of Tristram event. If you don’t manage to complete everything all at once – don’t worry! The Achievements you earn one year “stick”, and you won’t have to re-earn them every year. You can pick up where you left off.
Success! Shawn and I achieved our goal of getting the characters that we rolled on Launch Night all the way through Normal difficulty before the one year anniversary of Diablo III (May 15, 2013). We actually managed to do it a couple of days before the anniversary.
Yeah, it took us a while. However, we were having fun and taking things at our own speed, as our schedules allowed. To us, it was super exciting to get those two characters through Normal before the anniversary of Diablo III. Here are some of the screenshots from the last part of Act IV that I thought were cool.
As you may have seen from my previous Diablo III blog, my Demon Hunter, ThirtySeven, and Shawn’s Barbarian, Smashez Stanzenfyr, where working their way through Act IV of Normal mode. Our goal was to get the two characters that we rolled on Launch Night through all of Normal difficulty before the one year anniversary of Diablo III. When we started this part of their adventure, Smashez was at level 31, and ThirtySeven was at level 32.
However, once again, I’ve managed to get my screenshots out of order. I wanted to include the cool stuff from Act IV anyway, so here’s some stuff that is kind of in random order. (I have since figured out a way to keep stuff from getting scrambled).
