I just glanced over your toon - you are missing a lot of CDR for Akkhan Condemn (if possible re-roll all that resource cost reduction into CDR - the goal is to get to around 56-57% CDR for permanent Akkarat Champion).
Regarding the progress, a combination of everything - rifts, GR's and bounties for as long as you find it enjoyable. With the shards you get from those activities try to get ancient items that you will augment later on.

One of the Conquests is Master 8 set dungeons

I'm doing seasons, coz my stash in non-season is completely full (I have all classes there, just the basic sets and corresponding legendaries take a lot of space...), so I can play around with different stuff much more than within seasons.
BTW, still didn't empty my "seasonal mail", even though I salvaged a lot in season before season end. It's a hassle to juggle around with all that stuff

It's not a shard. It's a whopping 15 Forgotten Souls!!!

Feb 21, 2019Bagstone posted a message on DiabloFans says farewell. Let's celebrate the good old times once more!Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Well, the news hit the frontpage, and I'm sure I'm not the only one who's shocked, surprised, and extremely saddened by it. I can sort of understand aspects of it - traffic has gone down, and from a mod view I can say that I have to remove more spam posts each day than I can enjoy reading new posts. Nevertheless, I thought this could've been a nice place to hang out even if the franchise is going downhill (is it though?). But well. Ain't gonna happen.
But instead of endless complaining about things we can't change, why don't we all revisit our past, share our memorable DFans moments, and take a look into the future? Look at your post history to go down the memory lane. So, I'll start:
I joined Diablofans about six and a half years ago because I had a stupid question about making an Inferno tank barb to support my two DH friends. That kind of didn't go anywhere, so I switched to my other main char (Archon wizard) which should soon become my passion. To share some of the insights I gained from reading up and theorycrafting some of the wizard stuff, I wrote a guide which maybe some of you remember (RoS edition as the old one was from the old forum software and looks ugly, but the first one was written over Christmas 2012). I continued to make a few guides (see thread history, some I didn't even remember like an 1-70 leveling guide, lol) and also my small website (http://d3resource.com/), I think the reason for making D3Resource was that I needed a domain to host my CHD vs CHC calc.
I don't remember when I became mod, because that really didn't matter; what I do remember is the lot of awesome people that I met on Diablofans, ingame, or on both channels. Some of those have sadly long gone, like Jaetch and Loroese - the two best wizard theorycrafters Diablo had (pre-RoS). I also have to mention overneathe, who introduced me to the DFans mod world (without him I wouldn't be here), and his successor Zero(pS). We didn't just play DIablo - do you guys remember the Terraria times? That was fun! There are so many more names I can and probably should list, but many of them were unfortunately purged in the recent transition phase when Fandom took over, and many don't check this forum anymore. But if you do please say high in here!!!
Unfortunately over the years the forum became more and more inactive, and I prefer old-school forums much, much more than Reddit (I just can't deal with the strange thread style, makes it impossible to read "all new posts") and even worse all the video-based info (I'd rather read a long, well-written guide than watch a 10 minute video on Youtube). But I guess that makes me a dinosaur, I dying breed, one that doesn't like to play games on phones ;-)
So, what's up next? I will maintain D3Resource, at least for now. I might lag behind with some updates, honestly, but the best way to contact me is shoot me a Reddit message. I think I'm still behind on the S16 season overview but honestly... not in the mood right now, given recent events. Also, work. If I ever were to abandon D3Resource, I would probably zip all the source code and throw it to someone, so no worries, it won't magically disappear. But it's a static website and I host a lot of old stuff (like a forum that has a much older community, founded in 1997, with less than 10 posts over the last 10 years ;-)). No worries.
I'm not sure about my personal future in Diablo. To be honest, as I expressed here, my view on Blizzard/Diablo shifted. I literally played 8-10 hours for the last 4 seasons each (went online, got a power level, rushed to get Guardian done as fast as possible, delete). S16 took me a bit more than 7 hours to finish Guardian. I'm not sure it's gonna be more given that D3 feels a bit stale to me and PoE looks so much more exciting. I just recently started (~2 months ago) but If someone has a place for a noob (I just played up 3 builds and tried to learn as much as possible, but only tried Shaper once and no kill yet) let me know, I'm sort of looking for a guild, preferably with Discord (and potentially forum, haha, you know me). What a cheap plug, but well, gotta seize the opportunity! I'm also occasionally playing SC2 co-op which I really enjoy (and watching WCS). Once Dfans is gone, I'll continue posting on Reddit, I'm regularly in the chat channel of svr's Discord (where we discuss D3, PoE, and SC2),and maybe we meet elsewhere. See my battle tag in my forum profile (bagstone#2613) or PoE (bagstone).
Thanks everyone for making this a nice home for so many years! <3

I made a thing: The Season Journey Tracker!
Here's what it looks like in action:
Super simple concept - just as you doing the Season Journey click on a task to keep an overview of what you have done and what still needs to be done. The status is saved in a cookie. Pay attention to the in-game popups because you can complete many season journey objectives that aren't even visible yet, so this website might help you to keep an overview.
For feedback, you can contact me on Reddit:

Ah, game forums... The perfect provider of stupidity and anonymity that allows someone to think theyre so omniscient they can declare something unfit for another persons taste without ever knowing them.
Truly this is the age of miracles and we should all bow down and.... ah screw it lets just have fun with the new village idiot and point out the futility of posting on a Diablo forum that he has nothing good to say about Diablo.

One year (and some change) later, we might finally get this suggestion - at least partially - first GR70 per season & account will drop a primal (unless removed from the PTR 2.6.4)
PS. Sorry for the necro of the thread, but it was fun to see that it might come to life eventually...

Finding Princess Lilian - The video of us finding her
The Cosmic Wings
Edit: I've been frequently updating the guide as I feel like something is needed to be added. You might see something different compared to the last time you checked this guide.
UPDATE: Season 14, The double goblin season, won't affect your chance of getting the wings since you will only find two of the same kind goblins next to each other and two rainbow portals will lead to the same Whimsydale.
Since im a new player I don't know a lot about builds and classes so I only mentioned the fast builds that I know of. Feel free to mention about the missing builds or if you have a better one. These builds are made by other players.
The core items you need in Chicken and Danetta DH are only main and off hand weapons so they are the easiest to start farming with.

Hello everyone. After 12+ hours of farming of RBG's for 15days in a row and 304 portals, I finally got them and I have been noting down most of the goblin's locations as I wanted to share the stats, and my/our rotation to help people who has been farming/wants to farm. I will try to make this guide as brief as possible. This is the first time I'm making a guide so please pardon me if it looks not well made.
Some Information about Princess Lilian, Whimsydale and Rainbow Goblins
I would like to correct a common mistake first, Princess Lilian spawns from another unique monster pool. (Tubbers, Nightmarity, Team unicorn, Princess Stardust, etc.) You will always see Super Awesome Cake or Evil Oliver in Whimsydale. Lilian will spawn as an extra, the 2nd unique mob. She DOES NOT spawn instead of Evil Oliver or Super Awesome Cake.
The difficulty does not matter. It won't affect Princess Lilian's or RGB's spawn chance. I farmed on normal difficulty.
It took 304 portals for me, so approximately %0,3 chance of Princess Lilian spawn chance, atleast for my journey. But remember, its all RNG, It can take just a few portals for you, or more than me (hopefully won't).
As you can see, Princess Lilian looks different from the other ponies. Only 1 other mob looks excatly the same as her, Princess Stardust which is another irrelevant extra unique might spawn from the 2nd unique mob pool.
This is how would you see a Rainbow Goblin on the minimap and while it is sitting at somewhere. %80 of the time it sits and wait to be found at somewhere, channeling the portal. Sometimes it jumps out of the portal out of no where when you get close to its location. If you want to share it with someone not in the party, you have to keep your distance to RGB and invite others. If you get too close to it, even if you don't attack, it will start running around and you have to kill it before it escapes. Remember %85 of the time you will hear it's sqeuaking sound before you see it. All of the goblins makes the same sound, expect the blue one (don't waste time to kill it) has a deeper voice.
You don't need to be in the map which the Rainbow Goblin was killed in, being in the same party is enough. You can still teleport to the player who killed it and get in to the Whimsydale portal.
Rainbow Goblin (CAN't spawn via a bandit shrine) spawn chance is around %3-4 from what I have observed. But remember, it's all RNG. Upon its death, he will make a portal to Whimsydale (not Whimsyshire) where Lilian can possibly spawn. Only the people who were in the same party when RBG got killed can access to the Whimsydale. You can only find her in Whimsydale. Once you get in to Whimsydale, make sure you check every single corner. She can spawn even next to Oliver / Cake.
Only 1 Whimsydale can occur in one game. Killing more than 1 RBG's in the same game will teleport you to the same Whimsydale. So once you kill a RBG and clear Whimsydale reset the game.
IMPORTANT ! !!!! Make sure everyone gets in to Whimsydale at the same time, if someone kills Princess Lilian before you get in, you won't get the wings. She can spawn right in front of the portal you enter. !!!!!
Farming for RBG's can be discouraging. Don't get demotivated if you can't find RBG for a while. I had many instances that almost 2 hours of no RBG even though we were actively farming for it as 4 people. But sometimes we found 2-3-4 times in a row. We even found 8 times in a row, but that was extreme luck. You will eventually find one, just keep farming efficiently.
If you already made up your mind, don't give up ! I knew if I gave up I would never get my wings. I've tracked and noted the goblins to keep myself motivated and share with other farmers to help them a bit. Consistent farming might get extremly boring and it is not suitable for everyone. You don't have to farm like me, take breaks whenever you feel fatigued or bored. I also took those breaks but tried to keep them to minimum.
- Lower & mute any volume EXCEPT Effects and Master Volume. Most of the time goblins makes a squeaking sound before you are able to see them. This is very important, I have found many RBG's without seeing them at first.
It is THE MOST important thing in farming RBG. You and your party should not waste a minute while hunting. Don't waste time on killing/looting mobs or any other goblin except rainbow.
-Join "Rainbow Goblin" "Rainbow Goblin Farm" "Farm Cosmic Wings" "Cosmic Wings Season" and other active communities to find people for farming together. ( I have just created one, called RBG Hunting if you would like to join)
-Do not allow any leechers in your party, make sure everyone has a speed build (chicked WD, dash monk, etc.) Always try to farm as a group, the more people you have in your group the more Rgb you will find.
-The slowest member should take the shortest act, (a3 or a5), act1 for the fastest member. Your clear time of your party for the maps I will share down below should not take more than 6-7 minutes. If its taking any longer, someone is leeching, does not have a speed build or trying to explore the whole map which is a big mistake.
-After everyone finishes their acts, each member should type "Done + act". Once everyone is done, type "new game" so everyone logs out for reset. Reseting fast is another important element of efficiency.
-If you find a goblin in any map except than P.Fortress level 1 and 2, go to the next map because except those 2 the maps in your rotation will never contain a second goblin.2.The Acts & RotationSome zones has much higher chance to spawn a goblin compared to the others. You and your group should only search them. I will only mention those maps/acts.
If you are solo farming, I suggest checking the total Rainbow Goblin stats down below and making a route including only the maps that had high amount of rgb's. For example I found 49 goblins in 50 minutes only doing Act 5 rotation. The more goblin you find, the higher chance of encountering a RBG.
Sorry for my long loading screens, FPS drops and navigation errors. You can do much better than me.
-How to Clear Acts
Act 1. Sample video https://youtu.be/6J_vHiXjnAw
Southern Highlands( explore only until you find Cave of the Moon clan)
Cave of the Moon Clan 1&2
Northren Highlands ( Go upstairs, to Leoric's Hunting Ground)Explore LHG, then teleport to Royal Crypts
Cathedral level 2
Ancient Waterways Western-Eastern Channels 1&2
Teleport to City of Caldeum, go directly to the sewers and explore it
Howling Plateau (can be excluded, not as efficient as other maps)
Stinging Winds (Go south, enter Black Canyon Mines)Explore only the entrance of BCM
The Core of Arreat
Tower of the Cursed & Damned 1&2
The Bridge of Korsikk, go north and (Fields of Slaughter) Find the cave, if it is " Caverns of Frost" search it, if "Icefall caves" skip it.
I don't recommend doing any maps on act 4, only if one of the party member is faster than you he/she should check Gardens of Hope Tier level 1-2-3 until everyone has cleared their rotation.
You will always take the first right when you start exploring P.Fortress level 1 and 2.
P.Fortress 1, after you finish searching level 1, teleport to 2 via the map.These maps always spawns either 2 or 0 goblins, so if you find one look for the second.
The RGB stats that I had noted (approximately the last 250) :
Cave of the Moon Clan -22
Leoric's Hunting Grounds-15
Cathedral level 1-3
Cathetral level 2-11
Cathedral level 3-3
Weeping Hollow-1 (not checked frequently)
Black Canyon Mines-2
Sewers of Caldeum-8
Heart of damned-1
Tower of cursed- 17
Fields of slaughter- 3
Tower of Damned- 9
Core of arreat-6
The battlefields- 4 (not checked frequently)
Caverns of Frost- 10
Gardens of hope tier 2-1
Gardens of hope tier 3-1
Gardens of hope tier 1-4
Pandemonium Fortress 2-33
Pandemonium Fortress 1-26
Shout out to my farming friends who spent dozens of hours farming with me KraXaX(the mvp), P4CHO, NupeQ, SmOK, TomTG, and many other players who I partied with. I would never be able to find the wings without you guys.
I wish all of you the best luck and I hope it won't take as long as me to get your wings.
My battle tag is Dreamwalker#21489 Feel free to ask any questions.

What kind of themes would you like? Here are a few suggestions for upcoming seasons:
Season of Chaos
Double elites and bosses outside grifts. For increased chaos and excitement all elites spawn with another elitepack or boss.
Season of Nemesis
On very rare occasions, extremely powerful ubers spawn outside rifts and drop guaranteed primal item. Also, primal droprate is increased outside rifts.
Season of Ancients
Legendary and set item drop rates are reduced 80% from total value but all drops are guaranteed ancients or better. This actually improves chances of getting ancients. No junk legs, quality only.
Season of a Farmer
Double bounty materials, double gr stones and extra gem upgrade for staying alive.
Suggestion graphics use Blizzard's graphics.
