Some random thoughts while I go to make dinner…..

I have a follower! Hello, person from WordPress. Glad to see you find what I post interesting enough to want to know when I post more. I’m here very infrequently, so keep your eyes peeled. 🙂

On the subject of dinner, it’s going to be a loaded Nutribullet. Yes, David Wolfe is a fucking lunatic who talks out of his ass, but it’s the only way I can stomach veggies. And what I make is pretty tasty, so there’s that.

I’ve been writing quite a bit lately offline. Yes, I’m one of those crazy people that writes using pen and paper in addition to on a computer. I’m a legit fossil. 🙂 But when I look at what I’ve been writing, it’s been a big stack of wish fulfillment. It’s probably due to how rough things are for me at home, but that’s how things roll on occasion. It might change once things improve for me. We’ll see.

For a change of pace, I switched from Diablo 3 to Skyrim on my 360. I forgot how fun it was to play. The kill shots are a kick, and the aiming is fun, especially when you put an arrow in someone’s head. What, did you think I’d say knee? Come on, arrows to the knee are just so 2013…

I smell pizza. I had pizza yesterday, but the odor still lingers. Dammit, no pizza 2 days in a row! I gotta cut back on the carbs and cheese a little.

I follow politics a little, and I keep my responses on my Facebook page. This blog is more for the assorted other shit that pops into my head or needs to be said. Oh, don’t worry. Those who know me IRL and in other online areas know my take on things. I just need to keep this clear of that. Other things need to take priority.

Well, time to actually make dinner. Peace and chicken grease!

Diablo 3: I gotcha, Treasure Goblins.

My current go to game on my Xbox 360 is Diablo 3. It’s really a great game, despite my 3 pages worth of complaints and issues I’ve accumulated in a notebook in my bedroom (which I’ll turn into a YouTube video at some point).

One of the most annoying little motherfuckers in this game is the Treasure Goblin. These little bastards have lots of health, are fast, and are basically immune to crowd control effects. Got a paralysis or stun power? Doesn’t work. Slow effect? LOL, this little fuck doesn’t care. Nothing really stops them.

But I found something that slows the little bastards down to a crawl. The Wizard passive Temporal Flux reduces an enemies movement by 80% for 2 seconds when you hit it with an Arcane damage spell. And it applies to ANYTHING with Arcane damage. Hydra gets it, Disintegrate gets it, Familiar gets it, Magic Missile gets it. If it does Arcane damage, the target gets slowed.

AND IT WORKS ON THOSE FUCKING GOBLINS. It works great, watching the little son of a bitch waddle along, unable to run away from the beating I give it and making it hand over its loot. It’s wonderful, I tell you.

And with the right mix of spells, you can take down the masses of them you get on occasion in Rifts. Anywhere from 10-30 of them pop up, and if you can slow them and get them in a corner, a powerful enough barrage (Disintegrate works wonders for this) can obliterate a lot or all of them and get you some serious loot. I pulled this off yesterday in a Rift, cornering about 10 of them and just blasting them into loot.

So use this advice and kill them goblins all day.
