Diablo 3, Pokémon, and SWTOR


As I mentioned in an earlier post, I got a Diablo 3 trial/guest pass/thingie. So far I’ve only played with a female monk named Bidoof. It is very mouse-clicky, which I find tiring, quickly. I’ll try another class the next time I play.

This early afternoon I finally bred forth the Beldum I wanted for my Platinum team. After some grinding throughout the day it is a Metagross now, with the moveset; Thunderpunch, Hammer Arm, Zen Headbutt, and Iron Head. I also did the Stark Mountain event, unlocked the Battleground (where you can partake in rematches against gym leaders), cleared the way to the Pal Park, and walked around in the foggy part of Victory Road with Marley.

Lastly, I finally installed my copy of Star Wars: The Old Republic. I expected to be able to play directly, because on my SWTOR page it says I have 29 days left to play. But nope, I have to begin a subscription or get a game time card. That’s just douchebag behavior. So I’ve ordered a game time card, will probably get it next week. I don’t know what I’ll play, I will cross that bridge when I get to it.

Waiting game


So in my Platinum game, I’m currently waiting.

I want a Metagross, but to get one I first have to;

  • Catch a Ditto in the Trophy Garden.
  • Catch a Beldum in a swarm.

Both of the above are daily events.

I can’t really progress in the game (like the Stark Mountain event or the other part of Victory Road), because I’d hate for Metagross to fall behind (once I have it, that is). Unless I’d want to challenge the Frontier Brains.
