I got to looking through my items and sets tonight, i had so much i made a handy excel sheet to keep track, a inventory list. (keeps me organized)
what i realized, was that i have 18 or 19 of the 24 sets completed, the only ones i still need are all 3 or 4 crusader ones since i didn't play crusader last season and my original crusader from ros launch is long-abandoned (he's still wearing crafted 2.0 legs and some rares...uggh)
So i also happened to have basically 2 of every class, i never deleted my original toons (my dh from vanilla is over 600 hours on her and i hadnt even played her since 2.0 patch....) so when i did season 4 i just created new of each class, so i ended up with 2 of each class except for crusader in "non-season" now
So i thought well that makes it easier to do those new set dungeons, i can divide up the sets, 2 sets per 2 toons of each class (dh1 will take marauders, and Natalya for example, dh2 takes other 2 sets)
great and all, but then it dawned on me that patch 2.4 is Tuesday (12th) and s5 starts Friday (15th)...that's 3 days to try to do all 24 set dungeons, power up gear with new cube recipe, explore new zone etc, cram all that in, is pretty much impossible
sure, i can do them after s5 starts, but since i have 2 of every toon, gives me very little time to shuffle all gear onto mules (I'll need several...) delete s4 toons, do my 3 rebirth toons, and start leveling, i was wanting to do get the set dungeons or at least most of them out of the way BEFORE s5 starts
because I'll fall behind leveling and what not, but wont reach end game sets to do set dungeons for prob a least a month or longer in season, and my non-season toons are all set up and ready to do set dungeons, i want the wings and rewards for doing all 24...
kinda lame that we didn't get a week even to get prepared for s5 after 2.4 went live...but 3 days is all we get, and I'll still try to cram as much as i can on non-season i can, but sucks either way...cuz I'll be playing season exclusively
Why don't you leave the powering up nonseasonal gear and exploring new zones for after S5 starts? There's no reason to power up gear until you're playing that character, which you won't be doing if you're leveling anyway.
I think 3 days is enough if you have all of the sets already. Just start getting the other Crusader sets you're missing now and stock up on crafting mats to cube the rest once the patch releases them.
i guess but i didnt mean power up all my gear, just play around with it, the powering of gear is more for seasons end game, and yeah its just its a little overwhelming for 3 days, to try to do all the set dungeons
I feel that if i dont get them done before Friday then I'll be doing seasons, and I'll need the character slots that my non-season toons are taking up, thus ill have to swap more gear over to more mules, and delete toons, which also removes the advantage of having 2 of each class to divide up the sets easier, which i guess isn't a huge loss, just easier with 2, and less mules/stash space to try to organize 24 sets...
Far easier to store and mule stuff in non-season than it is in season, not to mention the time and effort to level up several 70's, when i already have 10 70's in non-season right now, all geared up and waiting vs months of re-leveling/farming
I'm just excited about 2.4 and s5 i guess we are lucky to even get it and get it when we will.
I have one of each class waiting to do the set dungeons - all of their sets are just sitting in the character's inventories instead of in the Stash. It's not like they need to loot anymore anyway. Will we be able to do it in 3 days? I guess we'll find out, but I'm gonna try.
