Theres no save point on a dungeon. The only way that it will save itís only if you complete it.
Right. I don't have that kind of lifetime where I can just sit for a couple of hours and game I have five minutes here, five minutes there.

BTW it DOES save throughout because I didn't have to start from scratch I think it saves each time you complete a "quest" in the dungeon.

I tackle the Dungeons one at a time so I really didnít test it if it saves or not.

Itís called a Dungeon crawler after all. The main attraction of this game was to do dungeons one at a time.

Maybe Diablo is not for you if you are looking to spend 5 minutes here and there. If you are enjoying it, playing it like that, more power to you.

I need a minimum of an hour as exploring different areas is one of the things that attracted me to this franchise.

I WISH you could save anywhere because I DO want to play this... 5 minutes at a time. I AM enjoying it I just don't have the time to play for an hour. I drive the whole family around and I'm in the car waiting a lot five minutes at a time, and take my son to physical therapy and have 50 minutes on the dot... if it takes 51 I'm screwed. (I'll be getting the ROG Ally so I'll be able to play it anywhere).

Speaking of Dungeons....we decided when we do these we're dropping down to Tier 1...well me and Tim are. We tried one last night that's a Quest tied to Druid (Tim) and Barb (Me)....and we did "Ok" up to the final boss and got our butts kicked. I'm level 35 and Tim is 32 but I think...will need to look into more...how the damage scales with Your Level to Bosses/Elites....I think the game calculates to Tier to level somehow and goes from there especially Bosses and Elites. It doesn't see your actual stats. We're both underpowered.....between both of (these classes), One Legendary......and we're just using all Rares but the drops with right stats and aspects have been really few. So we dropped to Tier 1 and it was noticeably better and we defeated the Boss first go.

So I did the same with my Level 16 Socr doing her quest (Dungeon Also)...and went thru it no problems. We were disscussing this last night where Tim has a lot of frustrations trying to run his Druid but like I told him, these Build videos out there showing someone wipe the floor with this and that build has not just several legendaries but in some cases "Specific Ones" that seriously boost that build. We're struggling far more at Level 30-35 than we were at Level 18-22. it's like the damage taken has jumped so we're dropping to Tier One for now...

I really donít think that you are going to get more Legendary gear by dropping Tier. Next time Silver and I are playing, weíll invite you and Tim to join us to tackle the Dungeons. Youíll also going to level up faster.

Dungeons are becoming a bit easier so my next conversation with Silver will be to tackle Tier 3.

I think I realized what my issue is, it's not the time available, is that I usually have to stop what I'm doing when whoever I'm driving is ready. So it may be five minutes, it may be an hour, but I don't know ahead of time.

At this point where we are...level 35 and level 32....with pretty much zero legendaries.....the one I have is a 2HD Axe says Up to Level 18 and already upgraded 4 times.....we just want to get stuff done and trying to do Tier 2 has become increasing frustrating. There's articles out there....like this one below...that explains Damage Reduction and how your level along with Power level plays a part in it as you level up and has the 'Expected Armor" values per level. Which is the point; we are underpower and under-armored because we're seriously not getting much of anything, even from Dungeons.

You can compare and look at the Damage Reduction Values, like Poison, Fire, Shock, etc....on various items and it's jumped a little every few levels. like at Level 35 I'm seeing like 12% poison where at Level 30 it was like 9%. So you're trying to find the Best %'s and Values along with Higher Power Level (that does play a role) along with items that grant a bonus to a skill or attribute you are using. The Attributes, Values, %'s on Legendaries are way above Rares. It's easy for some with 4-5 or a complete Loadout of Legendaries that Tier 2 Dungeons are not hard. I'll bet the house and farm take all them off, put on all Rares and see what happens along with seeing the differences in stats; no contest....

You are doing Dungeons at level 10? You need to be higher level.

Whoops. I made it to the boss! I went where the yellow marker told me to go, I have navigation on. I'm doing the mission where
Spoiler:
They're looking for the woman's mother who helped lilith cross the barrier and was writing things in her own blood. She's the boss.

I would suggest for you to level up a bit before you tackle that campaign mission.

Maybe try it again when you are in your late teens with better gear. It wouldnít hurt if you were in your 20s too.

Thereís lots of events happening that you can do in the open world without stepping inside a dungeon or doing campaign.

The orange circle. Go there every time you see it on your map.

We encountered The Butcher in a Dungeon and we were able to defeat it. We were both Necromancers. II was Level 52 and he was level 29.

We were rewarded with Legendary items but no Challenge markers.

Played it for a few hours last night and got to level 17. I am at that section with Vigo and Nayarelle(?) looking for her mother. I got booted out just when we were gonna fight something down there, but am thinking of going back to the town where that woman needs help finding her husband.

Was only able to level up to 20 due to it constantly giving me the boot. What's funny is that the highest concentration of folks playing can be found in town, but quickly dissipates once you leave. I've only come across a couple events where I am the only participant and knock it out easily. May play a few hours tonight.
