Woohoo!
I can't think of anyone who has been more persistent with a build attempt than this.
Well done on the 60 and then the Inferno progression.

Their server just lost connection to me (everything else remained connected, so no clue why). Lost her, oh well, not far, but starting once again, can't get any luck with a hardcore toon, third I've lost to random server disconnections.

All chars at L52 and start of Hell.


Congrats on that, I am still with wiz & wd in nm. Hope to get them to act1 hell soon - will spend some time there until I get more gems/tomes.

Only one who really struggled with NM Diablo was wiz against shadow clones.


Just wait for D hell & inferno - DH, Wiz & WD clones can be very dangerous.
(The other day did D inferno on softcore with a barb friend & my WD clone took the barb out every time until I switched from firebomb to poison dart [managed to revive him a few times but in the end ran out of survival options myself].)
Btw, I assume you know that one can just outrun the clones - they vanish after some time (if you don't kill shadow diablo, clones will be recreated after a break but you can outrun them again until you get shadow diablo).

Still not a single death in HC to date touch wood, just dinged 60 with my barb, the first of my hc chars, now to pray to the loot gods for items over level 30 that are upgrades lol.

Act 1 inferno complete, let the farm begin, act 2 can stay where it is.

Just lost my Wizard @ 56 to a DC, seriously forcing online only was the biggest slap in the face for us Hardcore players.

Hi guys, fairly active HC player here while my band is having some downtime (All chars to 60, paragon 20 DH). Looking for some progression buddies for Inferno A2 onwards, as well as decent characters to speed farm A1 with - there's too many slow town-sitters in all the pub games! Usually on in the early evenings, with the exception of work every second week where its about 9pm-12. juzcook#6145

Disagree, the real problem is how disconnects are handled - in d2 a disconnect rarely caused the death of a character. The way it has been implemented in d3 is probably to prevent some potential duping methods but while it does not hurt softcore characters it is a near certain killer of a hardcore character if in 'sight' of monsters. With a little effort they should have been able to implement a better method, at least for solo games.

Do you have some 2h+off hand gear for any of your ranged classes? I'll be happy to some farming for Act1/2 if your get your dps higher. That way we can use our respective classes to our fullest.

My monk mostly farms Act1 in full mf gear but I got a few people and might be able to make a act 2 farming team. Which class are you looking to use?

I usually use my DH for A1 farming. I've been running with a cinder build that works as the main dps for the party (with SS at full, I hardly fire an arrow and hit for 80k). Though if they still nerf cinders it means I'll have to get new gear to build around the stock standard DH style instead so I'm not doing lousy damage. I havent bothered improving his gear beyond what it is because of the nerf (been putting my gold into other chars until I know what's happening). Just been working on some A2 on my barb with a WD friend which was an absolute walk in the park, but would rather farm A1 or A3 rather than A2 at this stage unless it was a sweet party :)

Slowly, slowly is how I am going - but got all now in hell act 1.
Going to level in the early parts, collect more gems and tomes.
Also saves the constant upgrading of gear so I will be able to spend more on decent gear.

Well, milestone reached.
I am now further along in HC than SC. My WD is now up to "The Breached Keep" in Act III Hell which is further than I got in my "NoAH SC" career (My SC L60 Wiz still doing the signal fires).

Had been shuffling them too regularly, every couple of quests in each Act.
Changing tactics a little now.
Going to progress them all to L60 (should all get there in Act III, death notwithstanding) before changing and once there I will then decide how to progress them to Inferno.

Belial is still the one boss fight in the game that makes me scared I am going to lose my char.

**Edit: And the WD is my First L60 Hardcore!
Thanks to Reaper78 for the L60 weapon - hit 60 just before Ghom and switched out weapons, facerolled Ghom without taking damage. :)
