Nah, the regions have no crossover. Also is 10 staying as the opening level for hardcore or was that just a beta thing?

Level 10 is when we open access to create hardcore characters. We want players to have a general idea of how to play before giving hardcore a try. Experienced players will easily reach this level in a few hours, so we think this makes for a good balance.

And as Icey mentioned, there is no regional cross over, so if you start a character in a different region such as Europe, it will not be accessible in the Americas region.

Level 10 in the open Beta took just over 3hrs, that was just playing casually exploring dungeons etc.

It won't take that long in release, as you will be fighting monsters more appropriate for your level rather than grinding low level monsters (Skelly king is level 8 IIRC).

nooooo let's not start this again :)

lvl 10 unlock was a great decision....

HC players want to experience the game playing Hard Core.... not "AFTER" you finished the game lvl 10 gives you the ability to cotinue discovering the game using a HC char.. that's the point :)

peace!! :)

^^^^^^ This, I personally was a D2 Hardcore fanatic and never understood the reason for softcore even existing. It will be fun running into unknown territory not knowing what new traps lie in wait to claim your life and all of your assets. It will be a blast! :)
