Diablo III was released on May 15, 2012. It’s been almost a year! My Demon Hunter, ThirtySeven, and Shawn’s Barbarian, Smashez Stanzenfyr, were created on Launch Night.
They are still in Normal difficulty! The goal now is to get these two characters to the end of Act IV of Normal mode before May 15, 2013. Both Smashez and ThirtySeven were at level 29, and were somewhere in Act III of Normal. Here are the more interesting parts of their adventure!
Baelfire Toothgrind is one of those “giant tulip bulb” creatures
We destroyed the Trebuchet first, and then went after the Demonic Ballistas.
Somewhere inside the Caverns of Frost (level 1) we encountered a pack of Frostclaw Burrowers.
Followed by a pack of Icy Quillbacks.
Ding! ThirtySeven is now level 30.
Smashez Stanzenfyr got the achievement A Smash Hit: Destroy Azmodan’s war machines.
Tyrael joins us at Rakkis Crossing. Azmodan reappears and grumbles at us.
Smashez Stanzenfyr lives up to his name (and is standing in the fire).
Fighting a pack of Fallen Hellhounds.
This time, both ThirtySeven and Smashez are standing in the fire. Tyrael, however, wisely managed not to stand in the fire.
Finishing this little battle required running ahead a bit.
There is plenty of room to maneuver, but Smashez chooses to run through the fire.
Crazy Climber Event
Demonic Hell Bearers are so much fun to fight!
Buzax – “Eater of Manflesh”
I got Crazy Climber (Cooperative): Complete the Crazy Climber event in a cooperative game.
Shawn got that one and Crazy Climber: Complete the Crazy Climber event.
Nizoon the Slayer (Wait… I though that was Buffy’s job title?)
Winged Molok pack
Boss Event – The Demon Gate!
There stands the Siegebreaker. He’s doing the “Come at me, Bro!” thing.
Boom! The Siegebreaker is nothing more than a puddle of blood and guts.
Shawn got Making a Breakthrough: Kill the Siegebreaker Assault Beast on Normal difficulty.
Next stop – Arreat Crater, to take out the Sin Hearts.
Progress: ThirtySeven is now at level 30. Smashez is still at level 29, but getting close to 30. We got a bit farther along in Act III of Normal, and took out the Siegebreaker. Not bad!
