Seems the Blizz page etc think we all are very familiar and know how this all works. I have no idea. Never have seen this set and last season was my very first.

So, how exactly do we create/acquire these ancient items that this sets mods enhance the damage from? Kanai's Cube recipe? Also, it just says "ancient"....but it is ancient uniques that get the set mod right?

And, are "ancient" items easily identifiable? I mean, are they title "Ancient whatever?" I see they are hard to find....maybe I've never seen one.

U aquire them just like any other item: find/gamble/upgrade rare item in the cube/reforge etc.
Says on the item "Ancient legenday mace/sword/bow etc"
To quickly identify, ancients have a different frame border.

Ok....thanks....I also found the D3 wiki that explains.....pretty positive I've never seen one. Given the % guessing kind of hard to find, unless purposely forging/cubing.

I'm just going to play through the story and guess worry about it when I get closer to lvl 70.

How many season players play the story now? I read where some just go right to Adventure mode.

Nobody plays story in season or non-season. Everyone jumps into adventure stright away and grind Normal Rifts until lvl 70.

I'm the dummy playing story...probably takes a lot longer to level I guess.

I recommend playing through the story at least once. To get all the trophies (if you care about that), you must play the story with each class. Adventure mode is quicker, but there's no rush.

Right....each season I plan to play the story, then move on to any Season Journey things I've missed. I think it'd get boring just only doing Adventure mode.

While the grind can be real I tend to join a few buddies in a chat and quite often in the game lobby too.
It feels less of a grind when you can call it an interactive chat room.

People say they could care less when, logically, they mean they couldn't care less.
