I saw your tweets about your video card Mythor, sucks that it did end up dying. Can you do an RMA or is it too old?

Also I reckon I'll finally try a Monk with the new Season. I might even hop in this week and have a play around with the class, seeing as you can transfer chars in to seasons now.

Just to clarify if anyone is wondering on this point, you can rebirth a character into seasons, they still start with nothing and at level 1 though, retains name/playtime on that character

Too old. :(

I like the rebirth option keeping track of your playtime. Does make me more inclined to continue with my Barbarian as he has the most time invested. Makes you wonder how many hours some people would have if you could have done that from S1 though!

If you look at your profile, it records your total time on the classes, you just won't have your individual character times. It's nice for me as I don't play non season, so my original DH for example has 250 hours or so, but I've been through 2-3 100+ hour DH's after that one too (I think my total time is between 900 and 1000 hours over all classes, I might check that tonight)

Another thing to keep in mind about rebirth is that whilst the gear on the rebirthed toon is mailed to your NS inbox, you only have 30 days to claim it. So if you don't you will lose those items anyway.

Best to move the gear, inventory and follower items off manually and into the 6th stash tab b4 season starts

Crikey! We need to do GR60 solo now to get that stash tab!

Full list of requirements here (updated 3hrs ago):

I hope it's just that guy having the wrong information. He doesn't seem to cite a source, just copypasted info from another thread?

Whole thing seems kinda ludicrous. If they don't want people to have an extra stash tab then don't offer one!

I'm pretty sure it's GR60 now... quite a few people I know have been citing 60 (I thought it was a typo as it was previously GR50 solo) but these guys get it from the PTR itself so unless Blizzard downgrades it at the last minute, these requirements will be correct.

GR60 isn't mission impossible. My bro's done GR60 in this current patch (GR62 I think). I've leisurely done GR55 with the U6 set... fully geared right of course. Had I been

The hard part is finding sufficient end game gear to do it with in the 3 months that S5 will go for. Hoping for the right item to drop isn't going to do it... one will need to upgrade rares using Kanai's cube and that means farming lots of DBs and mats.

60 won't be hard solo in this season, I did 60 easily (Specifically a 62 in 13 minutes) in season 4, and power is creeping again. (And that was within the first 6 weeks or so of the season, I basically haven't played the last half)

EDIT: Specifically season Started August 28th, I completed Grift 62 on 2nd October, so 5 weeks? 3 months is ages.

I guess I see 3 months as a shorter window when all the other requirements for the stash tab is thrown into the mix.

I'm confident that if I hit the ground running... throw 10-15hrs at the game on weekends, and spend 2hrs every second weeknight playing too, I can get the tab in under a month. But I don't game for that many hours these days. I'll probably do 4hrs on a weekend and do an average of 5hrs over weeknights. I don't think 30hrs is a realistic target for me... being a casual and social gamer, there will be banter and downtime.

Anyway, we'll see what happens.

Mythor, my constant advice is probably starting sound annoying by now (well, it does to me) so my last suggestion (unless asked) is to take heed of the stats for gearing I posted on page 4 of this thread. If you create rares with those stats at first and then replace the rares with legendaries and set items with the same stats as you get them, you will be in a good spot to gear up for GR60. Some sets may require a bit of CDR stacked but for most part, the stats I've listed per item slot will be pretty spot on.

In early RoS I was gearing incorrectly, missing crits on items that should have had them... the consequence was that it took me longer than others to get to being T6 capable as replacing some items with the right stats for pushing usually made me too squishy or lose damage.

The equivalent milestones for season 4 were Greater rift 50, then 60. In this season due to power creep it's 60 then 70. Hitting grift 50 wasn't hard, I don't think hitting 60 will be. Yes it takes time, yes it sucks for you as you don't like seasons. For anyone just playing seasons, it's not a difficult proposition.

So which 2 conquests will you guys be doing?

As I'm only playing one seasonal toon (which rules out the Set Dungeon conquests) and I'm not confident in doing GR45 without a set, the only two conquests I think I'll do is the 50mil gold streak and the 1hr sprint through the campaign. Need to find myself another pair of Danettas for that last one.

This is my speed bounties build:

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Mugs ... o/34309712

which I'll need to recreate in some form or fashion in S5. Luckily, the speed run can be done on Normal so ancient gear not essential and I can stack speed increasing items/skills.

Focusing more on getting that GR40/50/60 solo clear than the conquests. I think being geared up enough for that should allow a swap to some non-set items for the GR45 clear, which you can do in a group, then scrape together 2 bits of 6 sets to wear through a GR55 run. It's really the solo ones I think will be tough because you can't get carried through by even higher tiered friends for those.

If I get the solo clear done but still missing conquests and can't get a carry, maybe the Set Dungeon thing? 50M gold sounds like it could be frustrating, a lot of getting to 30-40M and running out of things. Will be funny trying to stack enough gold gathering gear to try and complete it though!

Probably 45 no set, and GR55 with 6 different class sets

The main gold find gear I'll need is a well ranked Boon of the Hoarder leg gem. Paired with Goldwrap for god mode, and avarice band in the cube for fast pick up will keep me alive and keep the streak being fueled.

I'm going to do this one in rifts. The streak seems to end if one goes through to the next rift level but the reason I'm doing it in rifts is for the chance to encounter a gob pack... one gilded baron could get me over 50mil or at least close to it. I'll need to farm for mats and gems anyway so I may as well kill two birds with the one stone.

The PTR is shutting down Monday, patch 2.4 will hit the live realms some time thereafter: https://twitter.com/CM_Nevalistis/statu ... 2332355584
One of the last changes made to the PTR version seems to be a recolour of the Death's Breath item and making it the first thing that drops off elites: https://twitter.com/candlesan/status/685544236045840384

Interesting!

Don't forget to join the community or clan if you're up for some chatter and maybe some grouping and whatnot come patch 2.4 and/or Season 5. :) /plug

Mythor, you may want to take a read of this post on WP forums. Crusader might be the class for you to use to get that stash tab.

Hell, I'm even considering it now.
