Titles are often useful

Fourteenth consecutive post.

My character in Path of Exile is roughly halfway through Act 2 of Cruel difficulty. I’m still having a lot of fun with this build.

New staff

I got a staff in Path of Exile called Sire of Shards. Since I put my Flame Totem gems in it, the totems fire in all directions.

Did stuff today

Had some catch-up cleaning to work on today. I got to level 4 in Habitica and got a new sword and shield.

I also played more Path of Exile. I got Mind Over Matter, which is a fun keystone. And my totems keep getting more awesome. I only have one more Trial of Ascendancy left before I can go to the Labyrinth in Normal difficulty.

Essence League

Eleventh consecutive post.

This afternoon the new league started in Path of Exile. For my first character of the league, I’m trying a build centered around Flame Totem. I started as a Templar and plan to take the Hierophant ascendancy.

So far it’s fun. The essences are fun to get. And I’m glad they do keep the prophecy mechanic, even though the silver coins drop waaaaay less. It’s probably now a good idea to save them up, instead of using them as fast as you can. I just got the Ancestral Bond keystone, so now I get to have two totems. And already it is becoming awesome. I definitely see why this type of build is so highly recommended for a first-character-in-league build.

Homework

Tenth consecutive post.

One of my friends has given me homework. I am to scrounge an old computer, and install on it OpenBSD, single-boot. I am told that they treat shortcomings in their man pages like real bugs. That sounds like an attitude I would like.

So far in Steven Universe my favorite character is Garnet. But many of the reasons why are probably somewhat spoilery.
