Update: Thanks to Shantalya who has made a website that will auto generate everything(Name, Gender, Class, Build) for you! http://d3.shantalya.de/hc-challenge/

As my character in HC mode dies, I'm with you!


Update 2: As some of the new people have pointed out Monster Power is ingame now(it wasn't when I first made this thread) so if you like just go to http://www.random.org/ but in 1-10 and randomise your MP lvl as well! more random is more fun! haha. Goodluck!

Welcome boys and girls to the Random Hardcore Challenge!

What is this you may ask? has Narull lost the plot yet again? Why yes my friends I have indeed, as I have decided to continue on my insane self challenge and I invite you all to do so as well.

No prize or such for this I will flatout say that, this Challenge is for fun and personal recognition.

Now how does it work? Well here we go, here are the rules of the Random Hardcore Challenge:

You must use a random name and sex for your hero from the site below.
http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/dnd/20010208b

Then you must randomise which class you are going to play.

1. Barbarian
2. Demon Hunter
3. Monk
4. Witch Doctor
5. Wizard


Go to http://www.random.org/ and put 1-5 in the box on the right hand side, hit generate and you have your class.

Randomise your build! Go to your respective Skill Calculator page and scroll to the bottom, see the little blue gem in the middle of the screen? Click it and it will make your build!

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/barbarian
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/demon-hunter
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/monk
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/witch-doctor
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/wizard

Now here is the key.

  • YOU MAY NOT USE ANY SKILLS OR RUNES APART FROM WHAT IS GENERATED, YOU MUST USE THE RUNE THAT IS GENERATED AS SOON AS IT IS AVAILABLE.


  • * Example, you get a wizard but don't get Magic Missile on your build? you have to remove it from your bars as soon as you login and fight your way to your first skill!

    Now you have your name, your sex, your class and your spec. Go make it in Hardcore and see how far you can get! You may use the AH, but you cannot use funds gained from another character.

    My character is below, keep the thread updated on your progress and if you die tell us what killed you where/when etc!

    This is about having a little fun guys, something that seem's to be forgotten sometimes in gaming, so I ask you. Are you up for the challenge?

    Edit: If you'd like to do a normal Iron-man challenge SirRight has a thread going here for one which is very fun as well. =D http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/6412492777

    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/witch-doctor#WcYjfT!Ugd!YYccYb

    All I can say is hell yea! I am quite happy with this, anyone like to team up??

    But first let me get this straight.. I can not use the skill untill I have the rune?? or can I use the skill but no other runes untill I have the one I generated??
    also all my passives are late game so do I use the first 3 passives untill I get the first one??

    Sorry I should have been clear, you can use the skill, but as soon as you unlock the rune you have to switch to using the skill with that rune.

    If you turn on elective mode you can drag skills off your bar and yeah you gotta just click till your skill unlocks. Protip I found with my wiz buy a bow from a vendor or use a drop, that way atleast your not a melee wizard XD

    has Narull lost the plot yet again?


    Maybe :)

    In principle an interesting idea and I would partake but there is a problem. Since I do have one char of each class both hc and sc there is no space left on the account.
    A lot of that challenge relies on the honesty of those who partake but how do you sort out gold, jeweler and blacksmith if you have hardcore chars on your account as well. Let me make a suggestion to improve the challenge:

    1. The demon hugger Narull gets temporay accounts from his intimate friends lasting for at least one month but at max three months - to be decided prior to the challenge starting.
    2. Each player who wants to partake lists his/her intentions in a specific thread (or even seperate forum).
    3. The challenge accounts get the same battle-tag name (but different number) as the participants account (or main account if same has more than one).
    4. All play is to be solo - definitely a must.
    5. No AH usage - or at least no purchase of level reduced items or crafting supplies/artisan pages or books.
    6. Except for the challenge char only one mule character is allowed on that account.
    7. While the challenge is active, dead characters can be remade but the death has to be announced.
    8. After the challenge ends the player is given the opportunity to transfer gold and loot to the players main account (to be done within a specified short time frame - let's say 3 days).

    A lot still relies on the honesty of the player but in the end the player would just cheat on him-/her-self.

    With this or something similar you can count me in.

    Narull, question: can I use stuff found by other toons? Otherwise, I'm absolutely outta space in my stash.

    Unless you do the suggestion by Asmodeus.

    You may use items found(not bought) by other toons, as this is the same as getting something off the AH.

    As for you Asmodeus my friend, believe me I wish I had such power and that blizz would endorce something like this, would make a awesome official challenge I think. But I fear you over estimate the power of green text. I am a major supporter of ingame events(used to make them up weekly in my old job!) but alas blizzard have a more hands off approach to there games.

    I get what your saying about character space and that does suck majorly but I honestly hold no power over that sorry. =(

    I know the challenge is based off people not lying, but that's the thing, even know I'm green I am doing this just as a player, no blizzard involvement at all, it is meant for us to have some fun and I hope that people DO have fun and try the challenge out.

    Got to level 6 and I lost all steam. I usually do this to games that I enjoy but want a greater challenge, but overall, the game is already handicapped by latency/slight jarring from even minor connection hiccups as is.

    My problem was same as Asmo.. 10 chars already (5 SC and 5 HC) - no space for a challenge although I'm tempted to do it on Asia server (I only have 1 low level HC on there).
    But that would mean 400ms average vs 250 on Americas.
    On a Wiz?
    With potentially non-optimal skills?

    Hmmm

    You might not get a wiz!? and hey, call it uber hardcore and report what server/ping your normally playing with.

    After all this is pretty much about showing off how well you can do while gimped and challenging yourself, perhaps the Asia server is the ultimate challenge. (or EU, guess that would be the worse)

    hmm who wants to take the challenge to the EU server to test your skills?

    Played d2 on all 6 servers, there were 3 asian servers and while ping was in average worse for the european server, useast was not much better and the asian ones were good between 10am and noon in Sydney, at other times they were they worst (load issue?).
    Does anyone have experience with the two asian servers (korea, taiwan) and can one pick which one to use?
    Maybe one could arrange an october challenge on the taiwan server? By that time there should be a decent group together and all could agree on the detailed terms.

    And when seeing that funny coloured text I always have to think of the incredible hulk - so, where are your powers?

    The Hulk has no 'powers' persay, just a very angry, very strong 'man' =D But hey I did used to paint myself green as a kid as he was my favourite hero, maybe I was predestined to be green lol.

    Btw there is no difference in servers for Asia in D3, is just the 3 available, Asia, EU or US.

    I'd be keen on taking the challenge to the Asia server, I haven't tried my ping on there, I know on the EU server I average around 300-400
