Season 2 (and Era 2) ends Sunday evening, about 48 hours from now, as I type this post. Patch 2.2 goes up Tuesday morning during the usual maintenance, and then Season Three starts Friday night.
That’s a lot of timelines, but the next two days are the big cut off, with the final leaderboards set in stone for all perpetuity. What are you guys planning to do with these last days of Season Two and Era Two? A last push for higher GRift standings? Last testing on the PTR for 2.2.0? Grinding EXP to meet your P500 (or whatever) goal? Playing something else or resting and waiting for the patch on Tuesday, or Season Three on Friday? Working some miserable RL thing because money? Watching college basketball and drinking beer?
So many options… Vote: Your Season Two Last Weekend Plans?
Season 3 will be starting shortly after at the following dates and times for each region:
I spent the last couple of weeks planning to do a last GRift push this weekend, and got up into GR44 earlier this week solo HC DH. (Which I think is pretty good, but somehow there are some “never got touched once the whole Grift or I’d be dead” GR50 clears already.) My mistake was joining Katniss’ Crusader and some others for a four player push, and then all of us rushing too fast through a GR45, allowing a random pack of Elites to come through a doorway behind us while we were in a long hallway all locked in on an Elite pack in front.
The end result was my DH and Katniss’ Crusader dying, and the Barb and WD running ahead past the next Elite and through a long uncleared hallway, but managing to escape. Which kind of ended my weekend of GRift pushing before it began, but did give me a chance to spend some time on the (still active) PTR for some last testing of the new DH stuff… and man I can’t wait for S3 to start.
The new set UE is very comparable to M6 in power (I did a GR39 with mediocre gear), Strafe/Nats is awesome fun and more powerful than people think (I easily did a GR34 with bad gear), and we’ll have a big article about all the new DH gear options before V2.2 goes live. (And similar coverage of the new Wizard stuff as well.)Related to this article
