Diablo® III

HardCore Australia: Update

(Sticky)

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. :)

very nice :P

Same for me, with 200+ latency even a tiny mistake can be fatal with the poison wells.
That's why I will get all chars to 60 before trying it - want to use level 60 weapons w/o having to pay through the nose for level reduced ones.

Congrats on that - and may he live a long life.

Grats m8, and your welcome on the gear, i would of just vendored it as i dont plan on leveling any other hc chars any time soon.

If anyone else has chars 50+ in hc add me in game, I am only farming act 1 inferno atm but can still help out with gear as i find it. Prefer to give it to you guys then try and sell on ah.

Play a lvl 60 wiz.. have always played solo but it might be good to play in a team! am currently in act 1 inferno.. be willing to play as a group in act 3/4 hell though and take it from there.
Live in wa and usually play early mornings.. only time i get a stable connection

Thanks guys.
And now the Wiz is through Act II Hell and at 60 after beating Ghom. Keeping exact pace with the WD (19 elites less). 2 down, 3 to go.

Started the DH tonight but too tired. Too many close calls on the way to Khasim Outpost so she can have a bit of a rest. She seems to be equipped OK for Act II (edit - except resistances) but it was just my clumsy play.
Had to skip the Sirocco Cavern, wasn't worth the risk.

Otherwise, I continue to clear every map, fight every foe. Eventually that will stop when I hit affixes that are just too risky.

Hi guys, would love a good group of Aussies to tear up inferno with.

I have a Barb and Wiz that comfortably farm act 1 inferno.

I have the ultimate goal of taking the barb to Diablo. I've cleared inferno on multiple SC characters and have a good understanding of most classes.

Add me if you like Clysmic#1834

I would be, but I don't think my frayed old nerves would take anything beyond Nightmare diff lol!
Had a great HC coop group in D2...guys from all over Aus, NZ, Europe/UK, Asia, US & Canada. We actually had troubles some weeks when we had more than 8 ppl wanting to play!
Were you thinking of a set weekly time, or just ad hoc...? I'd be starting from absolute scratch though, pretty much 'untwinked' :-/.

Level 59 Monk just died to the lag monster while fighting Hell Belial - was absolutely creaming him - down to 25% in phase 2 before any green pools. Suddenly no damage happening and I'm thinking "oh crap, here comes a death" and sure enough, lag stops and I'm dead.

Blast!

Dilemna - Do I level the barb and DH to 60 or re-roll the Monk...
Will decide tomorrow.

*edit - I should say it was my own dumb fault, I had been suffering regular lag problems all evening and kept telling myself to quit or I'd lose a char... kept ignoring the little voice... paid the price.

*Edit 2 - I predicted this yesterday...
....
If I lose a Lvl59 (and I probably will), ....

So I've decided I really don't like playing Barb or DH so I levelled my replacement monk to 60.
3/5 down.
Now progressing the 3 60s to Inferno.
Then will revisit the DH and Barb.

Damn. RIP Blind. DC/Lag or just a tricky affix combo while decked out in MF gear?
