HardCore Australia: Update

(Sticky)

A happy new Hardcore year to all! Great to see how well our little post is still going and the awesome community of players that has been built up.

Keep it up HC Aussies/Kiwis! May your pings be low and your DC's none fatal.

Need advice on whether my WD is ready to tackle Butcher before enrage timer hits.
Defensively I'm pretty sure I'm covered, just worried my DPS may be too low.

No enrage timer anymore.

Really?! Awesome, I should cruise through to Act 2 then. Thanks heaps.

edit: inferno bosses STILL have enrage timers. Butcher's is 3 minutes before the whole floor is "fired up".

Still need advice on whether I'm good to take down Butcher in less than 3 minutes.

If I was you I would at the very least try to upgrade that mojo mate. See if you can find a cheaper one with a higher average damage, crit chance and a higher Int value. I would suggest you get your damage up to AT LEAST 20k to be a bit more safe and doing it on MP0.

You currently don't have allot of damage modifiers ie. Crit chance, crit damage or attack speed. If you can find one or 2 cheap items with some of those stats you would be much safer.

Let me know how you go, I might be able to help with gear if you can't find anything.

Appreciate the advice to get my DPS to over 20K, I think I'll remove some life for more intelligence to get my DPS up. BTW, I thought IAS only increased "paper DPS" for acid rain builds and that we should concentrate just on CC and CD. Will save up for a Thing of the Deep which willl make a big difference. Just new to HC so haven't got much coin yet and gear is so much dearer than on softcore. No issues beating enrage timers on my softcore WD but different story with HC :)

edit: just beat Butcher with 19K DPS, had to lower my life to 40K to achieve this though, but happy to take down butcher in 1.5 minutes.

Congrats mate!

Yeah true, for me I made CC and CD an early priority, and I purely chose acid rain as it proc's life on hit really well. But as you get to the higher levels the good crit gear becomes very scares and expensive. In my case increasing my attack speed it still kept my dps going up while I tried to look for better crit gear. So I wont replace my crit gear, I would just see where I can modify other gear if I couldn't get anything.

Also, if you do go for life on hit, the ias will obviously heal you faster as your doing more/faster dps. So I guess it really depends on your play style too.

So looking at your current gear, the best in my opinion to get for an all round boost would be a knife/sword/dagger with a socket, crit dmg and life on hit. It's hard to get but great when you do!

Hey ALl,

Feel free to add me Varl#6837 I play most days after 6pm West Aus time. I have a lvl 30+ player of all types. I like to complete a whole difficulty with each player before moving on to the next but are willing to fit in with the needs of others.

Cheers

May everyone's pings b low!

if you go the the 'hardcore' discussion, there are often threads by ppl trading HC for SC. usually 4mil SC for 1mil HC. look for ones by ppl with vouches from others

and im now in inferno, recently killed the skeleton king and progressing nicely

Finished act 3 last night with a couple close calls (thank god for spirit vessel :p). Azmo's fireballs were pretty nasty too. 1 took me to 50% health. Foundy first inferno legendary too, a crappy 2h sword dropped from the spider lady.
Looking for some farming partners as i dnt have any friends who play HC. Feel free to add me. Note that im not well geared or anything though :p

Bad luck! Disconnects are the worst way to die....it's more frustrating than dying to a silly mistake.

Having just made level 60 on all my 10 chars (8 HC & 2 SC), i'm tempted to leave them semi-retired and work on a new batch of heroes :)

I joined the Hardcore side of things.

Now that my softcore monk can carry ubers mp10 in softcore the game is on easy mode. (not wearing all the gear in profile btw).

Hardcore is a lot of fun, gets your adrenalin going!
