It would of been fustrating, unfortunately it's normal for Blizz to stuff something up in the season that wasn't an issue from the PTR.
It least when Bushy and I were tanking you could hang back and Bell from a distance.
The grouping of Piranhado seemed to really help Bushy since his damage is now enhanced from using Falling Sword onto mobs up to a max of ten.

Jumped on last night and started a new season character and went straight to the D1 Event

I did it in the PTR with a existing character, but man it is harder with a fresh one, the butcher almost killed me with one shot (Just like the original D1)

For anyone who isnt aware my issue affects me regardless of 32/64 bit setting and there is a thread on the D3 forums about it.
Yeah mate im getting massive lag spikes, fps related. My.connection stays green buy frames can drop to below 20 intermittently. Of you see sig rig, its not that. Havnt tested the 32/64bit thing

Ran a GR75 solo yesterday arvo with Jade and did some bounties before getting stuck into things around the house.
Converted my Locust Swarm Walker alt for rifting to an Angry Chicken for bounties and speed runs. I need the Firebats belt for group Firebats to be viable, I've used so many shards.
I might make a HT garg too, I still need WH and TnT though.
Since I have Bomb and DML quivers I might make a DH for Curses! as my Locust Swarm WD can only do 298 so far. Once fully geared with augments I should be able to do it solo easy, just not currently.
The other option for my second class is Monk. I'm thinking Inna's zdps/(partial dps) for groups. I have two parts of Inna's already plus other Monk gear from Puafia and didn't run Monk last season at all. That way I can solo Curses! for the achievement later in the season with my own Locust Swarm Walker build.

I will be running WD and possibly DH again in HC for achievements again. Since I work and do a lot of things on my days off I don't get the chance to pile on the paragons like others except for the first weekend of a new season. So I'm very keen to do conquests in about a month once most of us are fully geared and have at least a couple augments.

The hotfix they released today for 64bit fixed my issues. So all good now

Also now have a crippling wave monk so just getting used to how it works and leveling gems for it. It seems great in density but it depends heavily on ancient weapons I think to shine.

Felt good to get on the game again! Got some great help powerleveling from a few different peeps, then running some grifts/rifts with Cannula. Didn't take long at all! Now just gotta get him geared up for some good fun!

Had some great runs last night guys.
I ended up with Avarice for the second conquest and levelled a Monk for zdps. A lot of the builds people are running really need a pull monk so I've made one for pushing grifts. Just need to gear it up off shards, also got an average ancient SH for my WD so might have to push that and see how far past GR75 it can go now without augments.

I'm struggling to gear up at the minute, don't seem to be getting any drops and shards I'm lucky to get a Legendary but we will persevere.

Couldn't stay connected for more than 10 mins last night though so that was wasted, sorry to the group i was with hope you didn't wait around. TPG blaming Telstra and Telstra blaming TPG. We will see what tonight brings.

I have my Farming monk doing T8 comfortably and have been grabbing gear for both zdps and dps monk. Will probably level another monk so i don't have to switch gear as often.

Sounds good mate! We need a zdps pull monk. Bushy has a good Hammerdin and I have a good Jade Doc, both of which greatly benefit from grouping. I don't think anyone has a zdps barb so we might have to run any spare dps as 4th.
As soon as I get the Firebats belt my group damage will be through the roof, just Kadala hates me currently.

I think it was Joker who was going to run a zdps barb this season. I power leveled him a couple of nights ago and helped with a few parts of the season journey. Be good to have someone else doing it too.

Yeah we should have enough monks for dps and zdps, not sure about Firebats, but definately lacking zdps barbs. I might go barb next season since I haven't played one for a few seasons.
I'll go HC soon too, looks like we have a few people there already which is good to see.

Just noticed I went up from 13th to 11th for "The Thrill". Was there a bot ban over the past few days?

There was a Red Soulstone Shard exploit
