Diablo® III

I just had my first certain-death experience

... and I lived. I've never felt so great playing a video game. I ran into a frozen arcane enchanted mob group in A3 Nightmare in the Arreat Crater on my Barbarian and ran with a flashing red screen for a good minute to escape. And I killed those mother-!@#$ers after I came back, but not without a good fight. This has probably been the most rewarding experience I've ever had in a video game. And, to make things better, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Q9rewnLFYw ("I Can't Stop") came on right after I survived that terrifying encounter. What a coincidence, this should be the song for any hardcore player.

Its not a certain-death experience if you didn't die from it.

But yeah, that adrenaline rush you get isn't found in many games these days. Glad you enjoy it.

And this is why we are addicted to HC !

Atleast we are not whining about death repair costs in the new patch hahaha:D

I had a near death scenario myself yesterday, to a elite pack of invounrable minions, waller, horde. Didnt pay 100% as my neighboor started his harley, so I didnt see the invounrable minions affix before it was to late and then... Them walls....

Happy hunting!

Best experience I've had was pretty similar, and ya it completely gets you addicted to HC.

Act I NM, got jumped by elite mobs and had red health for a while...I'd run but they kept pulling me back into them. i'd be able to barely get off blind, and continue running. Ended up cornering myself with no escape, so I bottle necked them in a doorway... still with red health. I happened to kill one without dying out of pure luck and I leveled up which recovered all my health. I then proceeded to @#@@-face those mofo's and goal line dance on their crushed skulls.

Well, you might go back to SC after your first heavy HC death and realizing you just lost 48 hours of your life :D

frozen arcane enchanted


By far the worst for melee. After the patch, I would say this combo is probably even more deadly than invulnerable minions.
