The Waypoint – Week of October 6

by - 8 years ago

This week’s Waypoint focuses on some autumn/Halloween pieces from the around the community. We’ve got costumes, music, treats and no fall season would be complete without Pumpkin Spice.

As we journey through our very first Season in Sanctuary, we’re also celebrating the fall season in real life with the best Bottomless Potion around (the kind with pumpkin and spices)! Put on your yoga pants and enjoy the heartfelt tunes of the Treasure Goblin blues as you peruse the Waypoint!

Get Ready, Go, Get Set!

We nephalem spend a lot of time hunting for rare items — including those elusive (but oh-so-awesome) Set items. U/Inudax of r/Diablo managed to collect all of the Set items for each class, and shared the completed look for each group. If you’ve been waiting to find that last Set piece to finish your build, and wonder what the final result will look like, this post will give you a glimpse into your future.


What’s Your Favorite “Oddball” Build?

While brainstorming build ideas, you might come up with one that would seem strange to others, but (in trying it out), you end up falling in love with it. In our official forums, Halcyon explains that his “sword DH” is his “oddball” character of choice, and asks other players what theirs is.

It’s a great question, isn’t it? What’s your favorite character build that might appear odd at first to others, but you really enjoy playing it?

Catching the Pumpkin Spice Craze

Have you seen the “pumpkin spice” meme floating around? Do you, like Denby, wish you had your ownpumpkin-flavored potion to enjoy while celebrating our first Season in Sanctuary? Well, wait no more! Diablo III player and Eat Game Live creator Kierpanda whipped up a super smooth and tasty Bottomless Potion of Pumpkin Spice recipe to satisfy everyone who loves fall!


Which Music Is The Best Music for Slaying Demons?

While some people are perfectly content to listen to the in-game soundtrack, others prefer to queue up their own tunes while playing Diablo III. Gaarashatan told everyone he likes to hear classical music while attempting to banish the minions of the Burning Hells, and others chimed in on his thread with their favorite classical tunes, too. It made us wonder what people listen to when playing the game.

What goes into your playlist when you head out to slay demons?

A Moment of Unbelievable Luck

Luck is always changing in Sanctuary. Ashleigh asked fellow players on our official forums about the mostunbelievably good item they’ve ever found, and the responses he received made us want to share the question with you today. Was it a perfect (or near-perfect) roll on a rare and powerful item? Perhaps it was finding two very good items within a minute of each other?

What’s the most impossibly good item find you’ve ever had?


Conclusion: Who’s Got the Best Ideas?

That wraps up the Waypoint, but we know there are more good discussions out there. Have you seen an awesome thread, tweet, article or video that caught your attention? If so, please send it totyvalir@blizzard.com (along with a brief explanation of why it’s worth sharing)!

We’d also like to hear your stories about friends who helped you out in the game, answered a tough gearing question, or helped out your clan lately. It’s the little things that count, and the small things your fellow nephalem do to help the community are worth giving some attention!

We’ll see you next time, nephalem. Until then, be sure to slay a few demons for us!
