Have either of you attempted to play online? I assume if you're linking the account, this may just be the first step in the process for you and that you may not have tried.
P.S. I don't have an ETA to offer for whatever is going on here, but I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
You can always override the progress with an exported save later, go ahead and try to play online or use the quick match features to join an online game (that is found in the start menu). Please let me know whether you had any difficulties with that, and that may help illustrate where the issue lies.
We're checking this out. Although I don't have much other info to share at this time, I'll do my best to get back to you as soon as I can. Thanks for hanging in there in the meantime!
Bane of the Powerful Details
The damage bonus that’s applied by slaying Elite monsters with Bane of the Powerful functions differently depending on the Elite(s). In situations where there is a single Elite (like a Treasure Goblin or Act boss) then it's pretty straight forward in the sense that once you kill that Elite you get the buff. When the Elites are in some form of a pack, though, it gets slightly more complicated. The entire pack will need to be slain in order to trigger the buff. That includes every member of a Champion pack, or all of the minions along with their Elite master.
That said, there's currently a bug that allows Bane of the Powerful to apply its bonus damage after killing illusions, which is not intended. We'll be sure to let everyone know through the appropriate channel once that fix is implemented, so be sure to keep an eye out for it. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
Treasure Goblin Giveaway
A couple weeks ago, we mentioned that Blizzard was holding a contest to give away some awesome loot. So this is a reminder that this contest ends today, in a couple hours! So make sure to join the giveaway!
Invisible Guardian Bug
quasihawk found one of the most hardcore Rift Guardians out there. The invisible Cold Snap! Thankfully he had a very specific set of skills (aka sixth sense aiming), which make him a nightmare for that kind of guardian. Jokes aside, it's a very dangerous bug for those playing hardcore... imagine facing a Bloodmaw with that?! Ouch... Check the video below!
