Galthrak The Unhinged

This is Galthrak the Unhinged. I got this pet from a Menagerist Goblin in between Season 11 and Season 12.

The flavor text on Galthrak the Unhinged says: From the time he was a broodling, all he wanted was to be a Rift Guardian. He studied for many years, but was ultimately found wanting. Take him on a rift with you, and he’ll be happy.

Highlights from Season 16 (Season of Grandeur)

Season 16 of Diablo III was called Season of Grandeur because players benefited from the legendary power of the Ring of Royal Grandeur.

This ring reduces the number of items needed for set bonuses by 1 (to a minimum of 2). In short, it “unlocked” the set bonuses of every set, for every class, earlier than typical. Players did not need to actually have a Ring of Royal Grandeur in order to benefit from this buff.

Solo Self Found League (Season 13)

Season 13 of Diablo III started shortly after I learned how to stream video games on Twitch.  I made three videos of my first night/morning playing Diablo III Season 13 as part of the Solo Self Found League.

I decided to play a Necromancer because I have not devoted an entire Season to playing one. Most of the time, I pick one character class and stick with it all Season long.  I named her Hela, which is the name of the Norse goddess of death. That seemed appropriate for a Necromancer.

The Darkening of Tristram – I Sense A Soul in Search Of Answers Achievement

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.

The Darkening of Tristram – Protector of Tristram Achievement

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 – Achievements

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.

ThirtySeven and Smashez Beat Diablo in Normal!

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.

ThirtySeven and Smashez Stanzenfyr Somewhere in Act IV

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).

ThirtySeven and Smashez Start Act IV

It’s been a while since my last Diablo III blog. Even so, I wanted to continue the “story” of Shawn’s Barbarian, Smashez Stanzenfyr, and my Demon Hunter, ThirtySeven.

Our goal was to get these two characters, that we rolled on Launch Night, through all of Normal difficulty on Diablo III before the one year anniversary of Diablo III (May 15, 2013). In the last blog, we got them through Act III, and were ready to begin Act IV. ThirtySeven was at level 32, and Smashez Stanzenfyr was at level 31.

Friends Helped Us Through Act III

One of the cool things about Diablo III is that you don’t have to play it all by yourself. I mean, you can if you want to. However, it is also perfectly acceptable to allow your friends to help you progress through the game. Always fun!

If you have been following along, then you know that our current goal is to get the two characters we rolled on Launch Night completely through Normal difficulty before May 15, 2013 (the anniversary of when Diablo III was released).

Here’s more of the adventures of my Demon Hunter, ThirtySeven, and Shawn’s Barbarian, Smashez Stanzenfyr. We were happy to have help from some friends. We started with ThirtySeven at level 31 and Smashez at level 30, and we left off slightly after the battle with Cydaea.
