I also advanced my HC WC to 52: I am planning on getting him through A5 (he just entered Panda-land), unlocking Adventure and then making a crusader/monk and taking him to 70 in HC instead. It's all about the skills and I keep struggling with the WD: the guy has the most amazing look, but I really want to play him as a degen necro and it just takes forever to kill anything. <.<

The first HC WD:
Blizzard's server crashed and that was the result.
The second guy was luckier:
I also managed to engage Rainbow Goblins a few times:
I actually don't remember running into these guys before this week. I always thought that Staff of Herding was the only way to get into Pony-land so that was a nice surprise!
Now I am back to grinding paragon levels in SC and I am REALLY enjoying the WD. The passive gameplay of Creeping Death's Haunt/Locust Swarm along with Sycophants is very much how I enjoy my necro and it really brings me back to the necro/mesmer that made me fall in love with GW1. Plus Piranhado is just to die for funny!
Also, it's refreshing to play a game that does progression right: the levelling to 70 is BEYOND fast (some 10 hours if you start from nothing, or cut that in half if you have access to some lvl 60 red gems - throw that into a low weapon, load up T1 adventure mode and you're gaining levels left and right) and the legendaries are really fun. If GW2 is the evolution of horizontal progression, I might just be a vertical progression type of guy! A.Net should definitely take a few pages out of D3's book as to how the game can be improved!

I wouldn't really call D3 vertical progression either, more like a steep slope since you can get Torment 6 (max. difficulty) gear fairly easy, but max stats are very grindy and fully RNG based to acquire, and not really necessary either unless you want to reach those top spots on the leaderboard for Greater Rifts, and even then it's more based on the RNG on enemy composition and map layout...

I kept collecting the jewel-thingies that grant you access to Rifts, but never entered them it seems. So now I have around 300 jewel-thingies and a ton of firts to enter!
I am advancing my gear also: I am still hunting that Quatzquatz-something for the double Haunt/Swarm damage and then I need 2 more pieces for the set that allows your Fetish Army to live until killed instead of the core 20s (or so).
It seems I also still haven't brought a single Barbie to 70, so it's nice to hear that two-handers are more interesting. ^^

Normal Rifts have been in the game since RoS came out, and they're where I usually gather my legendaries and set items as they have around double the drop rate there compared to regular bounties or campaign play You also get a lot more Blood Shards to spend on Kadala for gambling compared to the few that drop from Bounty Caches.
Greater Rifts is a more recent addition, with special trial keys dropping in regular Rifts that allow you to enter Greater Rifts after a small "DPS-check instance" that determines your entry level. You have 15 minutes to complete each level and if you do manage to kill the Rift Guardian on time you get to advance further in the GRift, if not you only get an option to level up one of several Legendary Gems that are an exclusive drop from the GRifts which slot only into Rings and Amulets.
Have you tried hunting for the Keywardens in Act 1-4? they drop special key parts that can be crafted into portal items that open up an über-boss instance in New Tristram which drops items that allow for crafting Hellfire Rings and Amulets, the latter of which is a fairly new addition that holds a random Class Passive skill as one of it's properties.

I was doing my bounties and gathered around 400+ shards and was amazed at how folks were constantly shopping with Kadala. Then I did the rift and BAM I got like 50 shards and I was like, WHY DIDN'T I KNOW OF THIS SOONER!?
I fought the Keywardens a few times, got a few keys, but never enough for the whole key, I think. I just place everything in the storage and play Barbie. Well, Ken.
Also, MY KITTEN IS SO HARD RIGHT NOW!
I have one of those rings that removes the set req by one, so I only needed 3 pieces. Sadly, one of the pieces is the helmet and I want to use Quatzy/the +75% more pet damage one, so I still need to hunt for the ring. Mojo would also be a possibility, but I just saw the one that spawns a zombie mongrel every few seconds and I need that in my life. ^^
D3's legendaries are truly giving me life: by Ytar, this is how you do gear! ^^

The gear did push me to be able to do T2 very comfortably now: the fetishes are just insane beasts. They never die and slaughter everything in sight. I had a smile on my face the whole time I was running around with them. It just felt so amazing to get the gear I wanted and the effect was just as amazing as I hoped it would be.
I am also considering if I should start using the followers - I got the enchantress legendary that turns on all her skills, so I guess I could use it. Could be fun, although I never use them. ^^
