Now I might be wrong as I never played HC in D2, but I recall that there were perks in HC mode, such as great increased drop rates on rare loot.....has Blizz stated if HC mode in D3 will have anything to this effect?

The only bonus is knowing that you are one bad !@# mofo baller who doesn't care if you die.

HC for life!

Its just a harder way of playing and testing yourself. What better way to see just how good at Diablo 3 you are than to play in a mode where death of your character means ACTUAL death of your character.

No RMAH, which is a huge benefit.

Added challenge, which is another huge benefit.

In terms of "benefits" than the casual audience would think of... no.

This...that's about it.

Also if your character dies after level 10, it is entered into this HC hall of fame type deal.

Where you can see their level, gear, other things...etc

I could be completely wrong (and probably am), but didn't they say they were just considering this idea, but haven't implemented it yet?

I thought it was just being considered, but someone posted this earlier today, and it says exactly this:

You feel like a man, exude more testosterone, and get more IRL ladies.

Your play-style is different in Hardcore. That's the benefit.

Wait did he say Benefits to Hardcore mode, or Benefits to working out?

Like they said, you get a different way to play the game. Plus, I'm pretty sure there will be HC specific achievements, which most likely will unlock rewards, like making your banner prettier.

Yeah for sure. As much as I want to play HC, my connection loves to go fuzzy and random D/Cs make HC unplayable for me.

More challenging for the people that like a challenge. No perks like better drop rates. The only perk is if you don't like the RMAH, everyone in hardcore earned their gear (assuming there's no dupes or anything like that).
