Diablo III: S is for Souls

This blog is one that was supposed to be completed as part of the A to Z Blogging Challenge in April. My intent was to use the challenge as a way to get started writing about Diablo III (and its “universe”). Unfortunately, I ended up working a lot in April, and did not finish the Challenge in the allotted period of time. Despite that, I intend to go ahead and write the blogs I had planned for it. The remaining blogs in the alphabet will be written on my own time frame.

S is for Souls. The Diablo III: Reaper of Souls expansion involves a “big bad”, Malthael, who is stealing the souls of the humans (or nephalem) that live on Sanctuary. It made me wonder…. where do souls in the Diablo III “universe” go when they leave the body?

It might be easiest to start with the ang...

Diablo III: RoS Beta – Level 18: Throwing Blessed Hammers

This blog is part of my series about my impressions of, and experiences in, the Diablo III: Reaper of Souls beta. The beta is over, and the expansion is coming out very soon! Even so, I am still interested in blogging about the RoS Beta. It gives me a chance to share what I was thinking about as I was playing through it.

Joan the Crusader hit Level 17 in the previous blog. This blog will pick up from there and show the highlights of her adventure from Level 17 to Level 18. All of the screenshots that you see in this post are from January 4, 2014.

Diablo III: RoS Beta – Level 14: Snarky Crusaders

In the previous blog, Joan had hit Level 13, defeated the Skeleton King, and was working her way towards Level 14. All of the screenshots in this blog were taken on December 20, 2013.

Diablo III: RoS Beta – Level 10: Breaking Not So Bad

The Diablo III: Reaper of Souls (RoS) beta is now over.  Even so, I wanted to continue blogging about my experience in it.  We still have some time before the RoS expansion is released.  Perhaps something in my blogs about it will interest and/or help someone who wanted to know more about what the beta was like.

I was playing a female Crusader named Joan.  In the previous blog, I stopped right after Joan hit Level 10. This blog will pick up at that point.  All of the screenshots used in this blog were taken on December 18, 2013.

Diablo III: RoS Beta – Level 9: Stuck in the Corner

This is part of my ongoing series of blogs where I review my progress through the Diablo III: Reaper of Souls beta.  I’ve been taking things slow, in part so that I would have the opportunity to really think about the game.

I’m playing a female Crusader that I named Joan.  She hit Level 9 at 2:50 a.m. on December 13, 2013.  Things got a little weird once she hit Level 9.  All of the screenshots that are used in this blog were taken on December 13, 2013.

When I left...

Diablo III: RoS Beta – Levels 7 – 9: Common Debris and Rare Items

I’ve been blogging my experience in the Diablo III: Reaper of Souls beta in an effort to give myself time to really think about the game.  The result seems to be a series of gaming blogs that are rather introspective, and less of the “game guide” variety. I’ll leave the game guides for others to produce.

When I started the Reaper of Souls (RoS) beta, I rolled a brand new character.  Joan the Crusader gave me an opportunity to try out the new Crusader class.  When I left off, Joan had just hit Level 7 (as shown in the screenshot above).  She achieved Level 7 at around 2:35 a.m. on December 18, 2013.  All of the screenshots in this blog were taken on December 18, 2013.

Joan set out to adventu...
