Diablo® III

WD naked hardcore run with weap and shield

ok not totally naked, but it is a good way to really challenge yourself and learn the ins and outs of a class. I'm about a third of the way through with my WD and using a lot of the grasp of the dead and positioning myself.

I was going to wait until 10 for Jungle Fortitude but decided to give it a shot at 9 with a protection buff from a shrine, was a little hairy, took forever and got like 4 magic and 2 rare drops from him.

What is up with getting mega loot the first time you down a boss, is this standard? I just assumed it was due to a high level gap between player and boss, but now I am thinking you will just get better loot the first time you down him. I have stacked MF gear and it does not seem to make a difference when comparing against the drops received at the first encounter.

This is intentional, blizzard wants to move away from boss farming and instead make the entire game worth playing. You get a lot more with your first kill, usually 1 yellow, and then just one or 2 blues with each subsequent kill so it's just as efficient to hunt champion packs.

As well as usually getting a rare on your first kill, a class item (dagger/mojo) normally drops as well.

Already done without shield, only the beginning stuff and it was still too easy, until i fight Leoric and... die :D
Take a lot of potion if you want to try Leoric level 7 and naked.
