Hey you, get moving, it's not too far, you're looking good so come as you are. Hey you, you never know what you'll see, when it's through that door with the 73.

Hey you, get ready, get on your feet. Get into gear and hit the street.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

Trypticon so scared my Primus figure he turned into a ball.

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

All this over someone's username lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

Bossk Saw

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

Bass XD

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

If I had a sarcasm powered mouth.. ooohh waaaiiittt...

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)

Heh

Oh and before anyone brings it up, I have realized that I got started on a seasonal character and fixed that mistake.  Thankfully I caught it before getting too far in XD

 

No harm in rolling a seasonal character. When the season is over, it reverts to a regular character.

 

Enjoy Diablo III, while it's the weakest entry of the franchise, it's still a very solid game and leaps and bounds better than it was when it originally launched. Actually being your first foray into the franchise will help, since for me I couldn't help but see it as "Diablo's Greatest Hits" in terms of the level design. (Act 1 is basically the original Diablo. Act 2 is Act 2 of Diablo 2. Act 3 is Diablo 2's expansion, etc)

I have to admit that act 3 is my favorite in the game, and that act 5 in D2 was also my favorite in that game, so that would make sense.

So I was doing story mode on my wizard. Got to level 12 and just beat skeleton king. Ironbite and Mphage got mail from me.

I kind of want to make a crusader as a second toon.

I have made it past level 40 now.  My Doctor Wizard is dishing out death wholesale!

 

I really appreciate the transmogrification and dye options and that they aren't limited to armors/colors you already have.  Just level the station up and you get access to whatever they have.  Lets you pretty freely craft a look for your character while still getting new good gear.

Yeah, all the basic transmogs are freely available provided the Mystic is leveled up enough for that particular skin.

 

The collect-a-thon begins once you want to start adding the Legendary skins into your repertoire.  Those you unlock by finding the items themselves.  Those come pretty quickly once you're at the post-70 content, though, so no need to really stress out about them.

 

The real hard ones to get are the rare world drops.  A few bosses in the game have a potential rare item drop for Transmog purposes.  Plus there's other similar items that can only be found in semi-rare "Mysterious Chests" scattered in certain locations around the world.

I just got the season armor set for my Demon Hunter. The last set bonus gives my abilities a 40X damage boost. I am now one shotting Torment 5 enemies now where I was struggling before. This set is insane!

So, the last time I played D3 was back on the original Xbox 360 release.  So this new version has a bunch of new stuff I'm not familiar with, like what is Season mode?  I'm trudging through the core campaign with a Demon Hunter (I was an Act way from finishing the game on 360 with a Crusader).

I've played enough to see that campaign mode is a LOT more free with rare items and treasure Goblins, compared to how I remember the prior gen version.

Season mode is basically starting a character from scratch (no access to your other characters crafters, mogs, money, paragon points, etc) but in going through the game you have the chance to get season specific gear and other rewards for completing certain objectives. Once the season is over (seasons have a set time frame, usually a few months), your character will revert to a normal character but retain the rewards from the season.

Basically, it's just an extra motivator to "refresh" the game every three months or so, instead of sticking with the same character forever and only seeing minute upgrades.

 

It gets you up and running a little bit quicker than if you were to start a new character completely from scratch, plus you can get some unique cosmetic rewards if you complete the "Season's Journey" quest line.

Do the seasons have you do the 5 acts of the story again, or is it more like adventure mode, doing bounties and rifts and such?

So I upped my difficulty to Torment 8 and the game became more challenging again. Definitely need to do some grinding in there to get more prestige levels and see if I can get a weapon upgrade.

There's occasionally the Sprinter Conquest that has you attempt to beat the entire campaign in an hour (quite difficult without a coordinated group), but otherwise you don't have to touch the campaign at all in Seasons. Most of it requires Adventure mode, in fact.

Well, that's a surprise.  After 4-5 seasons of virtually no changes outside of the recent addition of the Season theme, we're actually getting a new patch for the next season of Diablo 3:

 

https://us.diablo3.c...100000004082190

 

Mostly just boosting more numbers to insane levels, in an attempt to bring more parity to the class specs.  Nothing much new mechanically, otherwise.

 

What is somewhat interesting though is the new season theme, "Season of Grandeur".  Essentially, you'll passively have the ability of the Ring of Royal Grandeur, without having to equip it.  That'll be interesting to see what it brings to existing specs, being able to equip one more utility Legendary, or free up a ring slot for the few odd specs that still use the RoRG.  This will also mark the first Seasonal theme that doesn't carry into the off-season, with all the potential builds making use of it being rendered dead outside of the season (unless they're floating the idea of reducing the class set requirements to 5 to free things up a bit, and this is just a test bed).
