something else to keep in mind.. when your character dies, you have the ability to add that character to the archives. There your characters level, what killed him and his stats will be recorded. Also he will no longer take up a character slot, so you will be able to make a new hero in his or her stead. even with the same name!

I was wondering over this but which class would you guys say would be best suited for HC mode?

I currently play as a DH and am literally a glass cannon. So I do not see playing HC mode the same way would be viable. Now I could always stack way more Vit and Phy Dmg Reduction, however I do not think this would be as beneficial as say playing another class such as a Barb.

Please give me some feedback on this since I am still new to D3 and have not tried every class yet.

Class balance will change with time. I really suggest playing whichever you like best.

I know this is not the answer you want so ill say witch doctor is best. He has spirit walk, a get out of death for free passive at lvl 30, good dps, cc, buffs and is ranged.

please can you update the faq as per below comment, I think people should know.

I got logged out of EU servers yesterday and I thought my level 20 HC Monk dead in the ditch. When I logged back in this morning he was there ready to go, the game got me back in at the latest checkpoint.

This is something I was really afraid of and which no one was able to clarify for me. Now I know and you guys should know as well. HC characters dying because of a disconnect is another one of those DIII fallacy.

I wouldnt say that this is a frequently asked question. I would sugest you submit a ticker to support. If they recieve enough of the same problem they will add it to the Known Issues Thread:

Can't say I would ever want to say to my son, "pick up your skirt!" But i have to agree.. You just do not play hardcore to play it safe. If you did, it might aswell be softest-core or softcore with skin moisturizer. Play like men dammit! Hardcore digital men, (or men with woman chickas) and no retreat! Face the enemy head on and drive them back!

I've never actually been the victim of one of those town-killer trolls (thankfully), but I assume this would work, yes. There is no delay when you exit a game in town, so there would be no timer, and as long as you could survive for the 1 second (or less) that it takes to exit the game through the menu, I think you might actually survive.

Of course, this also depends on your HP, how many monsters are there, how strong they are, etc. But unless you have teleport or some other skill to exit the fray, I think this would be your best bet.

=== How can I have two skills of the same slot loaded at the same time?
What you are referring to is called elective mode. It allows you to mix and match ANY skills in any spot.

Technically incorrect. Some skills can not be assigned to the left mouse button (primary attack).
