Diablo® III

The Hardcore Community needs YOUR Help!

Ok brethren, I'm compiling a long list Of recommended stats that will be categorized by Class, Act and Difficulty. After I have gathered multiple enties for each class in each act of each difficulty, I will post the average recommended stats and link to them in the Hardcore FAQ.

Please bookmark this thread and whenever you complete an act, please post the following:
-Class:
-Difficulty:
-Act Completed:
-Level:
-Hit points:
-Damage:
-Armor:
-Amount of primary stat:
-Other stats you feel played an important part in your character's completion of that act (examples: dodge on a monk, crit chance, resistances on higher difficulties, etc.)
-Do you feel comfortable moving on to the next act with your current stats: yes/no

Please continue to post and keep this bumped so that everyone can have a general idea of where we need our characters to be as we progress through Hardcore!

Thanks for all your help, I'd like to say I feel this is the best gamming community I've ever been a part of.

CLASS: Wizard
DIFFICULTY: Nightmare
ACT COMP: Hell
LEVEL: 51
HP: 24K abouts
Damage: 3.8K abouts (Magic Weapon, force weapon runed)
Amount of Primary Stat: no idea
OTHER STATS: Magic Weapon and Force Armor buffed. Duoed with a higher level monk who was pretty unstoppable. I felt very comfortable 2-3 shotting just about all the trash, but a couple of the fallen angel champ packs were pretty scary and would not have enjoyed fighting them solo. I feel like my stats and build were fairly strong for the difficulty and very few reasonable upgrades to my gear could have been made without spending 100,000+ gold per slot.
DO YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE: Yes, but not solo. Champions have a ton of health in Hell, even with 5k DPS, I need some help. I feel like a brand new wizard, except everything hits 5x harder than normal.

Posts: 120
Class: Wizard
Difficulty: Nightmare
Act Completed: 4
Level: 51
Hit points: 18,000
Damage: 2,100
Armor: 1,300 - 2,000 with energy shield (44/45% reduction)
Amount of primary stat: Will check when home

Diablo gave me a a tough time trying to kite him around (stay out of melee range, stay out of fires, stay off black stuff) - movement speed would be very helpful. Diamond skin saved me more times than I could count. The two adds I got from teleporting also held him off for a little so I could hit him and stand still for a second.

I am not planning to move onto Hell until I double every single one of my stats listed above.
