greater rift keys [blueberry cookies with lemon curd]

blog_griftkey_title

I’ve been spending a fair amount of time playing Diablo III recently. It’s the 3rd season, and with every season, there’s always a new build for each class. For the past 3 seasons, I’ve always stuck to playing Demon Hunter and only Demon Hunter. #DHLIFE

I’m super creative with names too.

The build that seems to be the latest hotness is the Natalya’s set. Not only does it do insane damage, but you look super cool doing it. Your DH probably gets super dizzy though…
