I asked all of you earlier what you look to accomplish when you log in.

I'm creating this thread to be able to post updates on the progress towards your goals, or just brag in general.

I'll start.

Goal: Paragon Level 70
Progress: Hit Level 68 today

Goal: 100m gold picked up
Progress: 81.7m today

I had the Tour of Italy, Chicken Scampi and Chicken Marsala today for free at my Olive Garden training today. Along with dessert and salad/breadsticks. Did I mention free? Almost threw up I ate so much.

....... Oh you wanted us to brag about D3. >.> <.< :))

1B gold. Actually, if you count everything I own and RMAH, I might have a few billion. But I'd like to have 1 billion gold just sitting in there. Currently hovering around 150-250M most of the time.

Paragon 100. This is probably never going to happen simply because my passion for the game slowly diminishes over time and the time it takes to level grows exponentially. I'd like to get to PL 80 at 500 hours on my monk (I'm about halfway to 75 and I have about 465 hours logged).

Become unstoppable in PvP. Doesn't matter too much on the class, although obviously I'd have an easier time with my monk. Since the game is mostly gear based, this is probably unlikely, at least on a large scale. I just hope when 1.07 actually comes out, it has more depth than "first to hit the other guy while he's not invincible/invisible".

I will just brag about how much I am willing to spend on levelling my two remaining softcore classes to 60.

Budget : Unlimited
Progress : Close to 60m.

@douvinsky Let the haters hate. There is nothing wrong with spending money you earned on things you want. If they want you to spend otherwise, they should earn it for you.

There was a thread last year called Your goal before the end of the year, and I'm happy to say that I finally finished last week what I thought would be one of the harder goals: buying a Legacy Natalya's Mark ring. At 59 million gold, it's the single most expensive piece of equipment I've ever bought for my hero. But as @Khan said, "there's nothing wrong with spending money you earned on things you want." :-)

Indeed, looking back at last year's list, my main goals that I have yet to complete are:

* Eventually get to Paragon Level 100 on my DH (still have a loooong way to go on this one...)
* Buy a Natalya's [legacy] helm w/ socket to replace my current one so I can add a life or exp gem (gotta save another 50+ million gold for this, it seems...!)
* Obtaining Perfect star emeralds for equipment (again, gonna have to save a ton more gold to obtain this as well...)

Oh well, at least it's good to have goals for oneself. :-)

I'd like to hit Paragon 50 on my WD, only been playing him since 7th Jan and at Paragon 32 so it's achievable. Don't want to try and commit to Paragon 100 yet :D

I had a goal of 100M but this is kind of tricky as I'm constantly re-buying stock for flipping. I'm not actually striving for any items, I would love a CC tal rasha's but they are SO expensive it will take me a long time unless I flip higher priced items which I don't have the bankroll to do just yet and don't know the high end market to know what's a steal.

Maybe I'll save for a leorics instead.. and this'll help me with goal #1 :))

You went from level 1 to 60 and then Paragon 1 to 32, all in 22 days? How many hours a day do u play again, exactly? :-D

My DH is only Paragon 24, & I've been playing him since release day...

No, I levelled him to 60 and paragon 3 some months back and he just sat there for ages. Then picked him up again in early Jan. Had been switching between DH & barb up until I found this vid on WD speed farming.

WD can speed farm very quickly on low MP, so I've done 29 paragon levels in 22 days which is still pretty good I think :D

Yes, that's still pretty darn impressive..!! Maybe I should seriously consider getting more EXP gear & farming lower MP levels instead of challenging my character on MP5....

Erm... This might be just defined different by different languages/countries.

But 1 Billion is 1000 million, not 100 isn't it?

1 000 000 = Million
1 000 000 000 = Billion

So if you are at 95 mil now, you are going to need an awesome Saturday to get the other 905 million. :P
But you should be able to do 5 million in about 10 hours or so. So should be easy enough over a game-intensive weekend.

@nuhertz many thanks for your help.

@berzerkerxx let me know when you're down for some more runs, I'd like to get a few more rings forge. Plus the ubers actually provide a fun challenge compared to the rest of the game.
