Finished Crushbone today. Level 32 ready for the next dungeon!
Beovaldr hit level 30 and Zerack level 28 while adventuring in good ole Crushbone Keep tonight. Dead orcs everywhere! I plan on getting Beo Jr a Gold Subscription plan so we can earn xp at the same pace. Currently I turned my XP to alternate advancement point only until Zerack catches up to me at level 30.
Well I tried quite a few MMOs to satisfy my itch. Star Wars, Star Trek, Wildstar, Archeage, Champions Online… None of them worked. So I’m back baby! This time I’m dragging my son into playing with me and starting from level 1 with a class I’ve never played before. Beovaldr the Dwarf Ranger. Beo Jr is playing his favorite Everquest race and class an Iksar Necromancer named Zerack. When he first played Everquest 1 as a young lad he chose this combo and messed around in the Field of Bone. So I think it’s cool he is keeping up his tradition. Currently we are level 26 and we just beat The Fallen Gate and this screenshot is us victorious at the bottom of the dungeon in The Vault of The Fallen. Huzzah!!
Here on Kauai we had a near miss from a hurricane with another on the way monday. It looks like we are getting lucky but 2 near misses and it’s just the start of the hurricane season. Been playing more Diablo III with Beo Jr and friend. Our group is me at Tank as a Monk, Beo Jr as the shim Demon Hunter and his friend the Wizard. I asked the wizard why the pink clothes and he told me “he had to”.
Long time no post. MMO Viking has been busy this summer with my kids visiting me. I tried a little Wildstar it was cool but not quite my style. Just got back from the movies with the kids. We saw Guardians of the Galaxy and it was fantastic. Very funny and cool. Currently I’ve been playing Diablo III with Beo Jr. We leveled up a couple new characters together from level 1 to 70 and are currently playing the End Game / Adventure mode and earning Paragon levels. I played a wizard this time around and Beo Jr a Barbarian. Man wizards are super powerful! But they look so EMO. I wish they looked more Gandalf-ey. Here’s a screenshot of our dudes.
MMO Viking is currently on Act 3 Hard Mode. I think Act 4 is my favorite because it takes place in a corrupted Heaven which is a unique setting. My crusader is Level 62 now. I’m using the Templar follower because he is the only one of the followers that heals. Other games I’m playing is Marvel Superheroes Puzzle Quest on my ipad and iphone. I love it. And I’m playing my favorite video game sport franchise NBA2k14 on my Xbox One.
Sir Beo the Crusader is up to level 58 now. I’m looking forward to getting him to the level 70 cap to start working on paragon levels to see how that is. I figure when my son visits me this summer I’ll buy him a copy and we will play. So the more paragon levels I have will go towards whatever character class I pick to play with him. I’m keeping all the Legendary drops I get even after I out level them in my war chest for alternates and followers.
My Crusader hit level 54 tonight. I started Act 1 on Hard difficulty and I actually have to watch my health now. One of the great new things added was the ability of the Enchanter to change the look of your gear for a price to any look you have already discovered. Very cool.
Ok so I just completed the main story line including the new act on Diablo III Reaper of Souls expansion. My Crusader, Sir Beoromir has been fun to play. He has some awesome fun abilities / effects. I got my first taste of Adventure Mode and it seems pretty fun. Basically I zapped around the map completing five bounties on big boss monsters and got a treasure chest loot item which when right clicked from your inventory dumps out a ton of loot. Cool!
I’ve decided to jump back into Diablo III and try the new expansion, Reaper of Souls. I had fun with my original run of Diablo III but it got old quick. Blizzard has made a ton of changes since then and they sounded good to me. First they got rid of the bazaar. I like it because with the bazaar all I ever did was buy new upgrades of loot for my character. Boring! So now I actually get drops that I use, how novel. They have made almost all the gear that drops use-able by your character’s class. I would say about 98% of it. An additional act was added which I haven’t played yet because I’m leveling up the expansion’s new character class, The Crusader. Adventure mode was added that can be played after you complete all the acts which sends you on mini quests for rewards which many people are saying is the best thing about the new expansion. I can’t wait to try it. Paragon levels were added that slowly upgrade your character after level 70 and it apply’s to any alt’s you have too, which sounds cool. Nin, Red, Jason come play with me for some casual gaming fun!
