I didn’t participate at all in Season 3 of Diablo III, and I’m not even sure why. I was probably playing something else at the time and just didn’t have enough hours to go around. That’s usually the case. Anyway, when the season swapped to 4, it came at a pretty good time. Aside from WildStar and Wurm Online I haven’t really been dedicated to MMOs, and live is pretty stressful lately (maybe you can tell by the lack of blog posts) so what I needed was a game where I could just hack things to pieces and then shower in their loot. As luck would have it, that’s exactly what Diablo 3 lets me do.
I created a demon hunter this round. The only two characters I have actually played previously was the Crusader, and I had an old Witch Doctor sitting at level 55. That character was ancient by now and I think I had something like 95 hours played on it even though I was only 55. Leveling is MUCH faster now. Once I set my mind to it, things were faster than ever. I now have a level 70 monk, barbarian, and wizard alongside the demon hunter. I’ve only focused gear on the demon hunter because for now that happens to be the character I’m enjoying the most, but I am sure I’ll flip flop between everyone else. There’s something to be said for not having to do any thinking and just be able to let go and game. I tend to keep CBC radio on in the background and just listen while I complete bounties or rifts. It’s a very stress-free way of gaming, and it was exactly what I needed. Anyone else have a game or two that they tend to hunger down with when they’re feeling exceptionally stressed out in real life? Let me know in comments!
As always, happy gaming no matter where you find yourself.
