    I've seen alot of ppl claiming the conquests are hard, srsly? are they? i'm really asking here, because i never had any difficulty completing any of them in any season, heck this season i played 100hours on the season hero and went back to NS and i still got the season journey mostly solo and sometimes with rl m8's/GF.
    My advise is to dedicate yourself to it instead of slacking, cause u HAVE to be slacking at this point the season has lasted ALOT of time, more than enough for a solo 80 np.

    The 50 million gold streak requires a bit of luck and preparation (T7+ vault or gold goblin while wearing Boon of the Hoarder, Goldskin, and/or gold find gear; or Ruins of Corvus). Yet, it's the easiest conquest.

    • 8 set dungeons require people to gear up at least two characters with all four sets plus the gear required for that level (about T6 difficulty); since every class has 1-2 super hard set dungeons, it might be more reasonable to actually gear three classes and cherry pick set dungeons, but still that's a lot of multi-class time investment that many casuals don't do.
    • Level GR55 with six different sets is like 8 set dungeons - just much harder (instead of gearing for T6 and being able to cherry pick, you need to gear for the equivalent of about T12 or so). While it's relatively easy on one class and ridiculously easy for people that reach a certain level of paragon, many casuals perceive this as difficult.
    • Sprinter (campaign in under one hour) is hard. I've seen experienced runners doing everything perfect and only get this with 3 minutes left. I've seen some of the best players in the world attempt this and fail this by pure RNG (and after one hour of pushing this not everyone can live with the defeat and just "try again").
    • The Thrill is arguably the easiest, though it's a matter of 1) how much paragon you have, 2) your gem levels, 3) your non-set gear available and 4) your general knowledge of class skills outside of cookie cutter builds. It's the easiest conquest in my book if you have paragon 400+, rank 50+ gems and a few random ancient items (even if they have no useful legendary effects). But there are many casuals who don't have this, and play this game for what it is - a hack'n'slash game where they pick a few random spells and just click on mobs while hoping they die.

    Avarice and The Thrill should be doable, at least with some preparation, for many casual players (not all, but many). The other three conquests are hard for casuals, yes.

    The season 6 conquests will be much easier in comparison.

    Thank you so much for this Bagstone! OMG I see so much "its so easy" around here people forget there are people who are legit casuals. I work 50+ hours a week. I have family, I watch/listen to movies and TV half the time because I am so exhausted to get out of bed. I love my diablo. I want to enjoy it I want the extra stash tabs but I just cant beat some of the concquests solo with my limited time. Thankfully S6 looks more reasonable.
    Like many other players.
    Mastery (all dungeons) took two hours per class for me (aka my DH, Crusader, barb, wd, monk had 2 hours played when I was done).
    Farmed all the gear on my wizard and had it done by first week.

    Its all about knowledge of the game, it take few hours invested if you do it right.

    A player thats too casual shouldn't expect to get the rewards either (though sadly gamedevs are moving towards this, more reward for no effort).

    Like when you see ppl with 10k+ posts on bnet forum saying they dont have time to finish season. Nice time investment =)

    Quote from H0p31355»

    Gearing is very easy nowadays with the help of the cube and Haedrig's Gifts, so if you have stable connection HC is definitely a viable option :). And the journey is piece of cake :D.

    For people like me - without stable connection - it's sadly not an option :(.

    Even with stable connection its just a matter of time until serverlag and you die.

    Quote from Frolk»

    These scumbags will bot every fucking season and after ban, they get an new account and go back to botting, god i wish blizz would just blacklist their debit/credit cards to keep em away from the game a bit longer
    When you get banned Blizzard tells you to buy new key if you want to play again. Dont even need new account, just do it on same =D
