Are you enjoying Season 17 in Diablo 3?

I’m taking it slow and only really playing Diablo 3 Season 17 when both my wife and I can play together, so we’re at about Paragon 220 or so and bulldozing Torment 11 or 12, depending on how we feel that day. I’d play more, but I don’t want to play when she’s at work and end up way ahead of her Paragon wise — plus to be honest it gives me more time with my current obsession, the WoW Classic beta test. But if I could, I’d likely spend all day every day in Season 17 because I’m just enjoying the, if you’ll forgive me, Burning Hells out of it.

I mean, I haven’t even gotten close to having a full set of Ancient Legendary gear yet so I’m not even looking to make use of the Seasonal bonus yet. But considering I have full Might of the Earth that sweet, sweet 20,000% bonus damage on Seismic Slam, Avalanche, Earthquake, and more is just annihilating baddies, and whatever my wife’s Demon Hunter has is just as sick. The only real limit to content we can push is survival right now — we basically have to always be attacking or we get one or two shot. But that will change as better gear drops, so I’m not worried about that.

Frankly, I think Diablo 3 has hit the nail on the head of what I find the most fun about the game with Seasons. Restarting every so often with nothing and clawing my way back up to good gear, higher Paragon and more challenging Greater Rifts is pretty much my absolute jam and there’s a reason I tend to stop playing after a Season has been out for a while and just wait for the next one to arrive.

But what about you? Are you like me or do you instead prefer to continually push a single character up the ladder? What’s your favorite mode of gameplay in Diablo 3 and how do Seasons fit into it?
