I got to a point in the game where this really strong monster called "Seething Abomination." I killed him by myself but it took forever. There were these three columns nearby that were activated by some sort of seeds in the area. I didn't get anything from them, though, It's part of the PVP portion of the game.
When you cleanse the seeds, you get a currency that you can see underneath where your gold and obols are. I still haven’t figured it out or search what you needed for.

I'm actually getting kind of bummed that this game isn't hitting me quite like I'd expected.
Having played Diablo IV right after Diablo 2 Resurrected, you can see that Blizzard hasn’t really stray very far from their original formula as a dungeon crawler.

I beat 2 out of the 3 World Bosses. Ashava and Avarice. I really don’t know who the third one is.

I’m also currently 2/10 for the cache of chaos for the trophy.
I beat the third World Boss Wandering Death early this morning. I got a Shaman Head trophy for my mount for beating all 3 Bosses.

I've got al legendary items loaded and has made a world of difference especially with some pcs that has some skills I use...Tim not so lucky.....doing the Campaign with 2 or more makes a world of difference. I know some...most...have done it solo but it's just more fun period be it the Campaign, The Events, Side Quests.....we've done two of The Legion Events and those are flat out fun....the necro (Tim) and barb (Me0 combo seems to fit really well...love to see a Necro & Druid Combo.....

I was looking at a guide for Act 2 to see how many quests it was and it turns out I did almost all of them before I completed Act 1

I made it all the way to the part where you have to go back to Donan's keep, which I did last night, so I should be done with Act 2 tonight.

Yes, I did from Act III until the end with Silver. That was helpful and fun as my Necromancer wasn’t as good then.

Really? Because I just temporarily ditched my friends for a little while to do the campaign alone because I was having to do the same campaign quests when I would play alone that I had just done the night before with them.

That’s weird. My co-op partner and I cleared the game together. Were you interacting to progress the campaign while in the party? That’s what I was forced to do. As soon we finished a subquest, we both got the XP and the rewards.

Honestly I don’t know. Shit like this is so obtuse in this game, I’ll just beat it on my own (maybe call for help if I run into a boss I can’t beat solo) and then regroup to do dungeons and stuff after that.
i just finished Act 3.

I'm going to try and make it through Act 3 ASAP because whenever I am on all the legion events seems to be taking place on the south end of the map so I need a horse. There was one that popped up outside Ked Bardu last night, but otherwise they seem to always be in the southwest corner of the map where I haven't been yet.

This is a pretty good video on a subject not hardly covered yet really important.....for the record, many consider Wudijo as the real legit First to Hit 100....two others who claimed the crown used some Group XP Cheese to boost XP.....

FWIW....if some get on and trying to run Dungeons are a area solo and need a hand, by all means add me and gove me a shout. the person whom I'm running the story/campaign with ususally has to leave early (gets up really early for work) and all I do is run around looking for stuff or drag out another character...but I'm ususally on doing something and certainty don't mind running Dungeons.

Buzz, you need to switch over to Tier 3 and start farming with us. Silver, Kanjji and I started running Nightmare Dungeons. So far we have done Tier 1-5 but we got Sigil drops for Tier 7 and 8. Also you can craft Sigils with a much higher Tiers.

One reviewer said one hell of a good time and that should be it's tagline.

How far into the acts before you can get a horse? Huffing it everywhere sucks. I usually teleport somewhere and run the rest of the way.

I beat The Butcher today after he killed me a couple of time. I just ran around casting Hydra and Ice Shards healing when I need it, took about less in 10 min. but finally beat him and got a legendary wand for my sorceress.

Working on it...we're at beginning of Act IV trying to finish camapaign...been a slight rough week trying to get together and head down home stretch. Once done both of us can hop into T3 with everyone else. Still need to run some Dungeons for the Aspects...and of course Strongholds. I have majority of Map opened except a few pockets and stright South that opens up in last part of campaign.

re: DIABLO IV: Xbox Consoles, PS Consoles & PC -6/5/23

We finally beat the campaign though it looks like we have one small errand to run with a key character.....all I can say is wow, what a story, what a ride, what a adventure, what maps, art, design and voice acting is tops even on the side quest NPC's.....I actually can see myself later down the road replaying the story....to me at least, it's that good....we've got to do the Stronghold/Dungeon to open up T3 and hopefully start playing with others in the group.

Ona side note I decided to get the last character going...Necro...and wasn't expecting much but frankly just a so-so Summoner Build and by far the easist and quickest to do anything, even running T2 Dungeons solo at Level 18-20 which the other characters were a struggle...they did seriously buff the Minions apparently....I'm using her to basically get the Aspects out of Dungeons now...

By the time you are playing in T3, we’ll be in T4 🤣

Silver and I have discussed attempting the Capstone dungeon for T4 next week. We’ll ask Kanjji if she’s interested in joining us.

Played some more yesterday and I'm still on the final part of Act III in the campaign, but kept plowing through side quests. I really don't like the West part of the desert. Going through that area was a pain in the ass. Discovered the two cities out there, though, so that was cool since I can now teleport back and forth.

We finally finished and right away went into doing The Tree Quests and Helltide popped up...then did a few T3 Dungeons and got in World Boss...DONE!!!!...and must say sort of proud of myself dying only once...not bad considering I was the only Barbarian and stayed underneath him almost all the time. We've been seeing more drops but so far nothing to brag about.

On the Sigils for Nightmare Dungeons...can one person open it and the others in the group still get in or does everyone have to have it?We've picked up three so far but figured to hold and wait and see if get four in if possible.
