After getting exceedingly bored in SC, I decided to try and reinvigorate my Diablo 3 experience by rolling HC. I've proved Blizzard's statistic that 60% of players die in Act 1 Normal, as I've lost two Barbs already.
The excitement is back. Hardcore is awesome.
My question is, what are some solid, concrete benchmarks other players have had success with? Does any of this account for MP? I'd like to play at 10 for awhile to level faster. I almost always play solo, because I only have one buddy who's still playing and hardcore still scares him.
Specifically, I want to know what EHP and DPS I should target for each successive boss, from the Skeleton King on Normal all the way through Diablo on Inferno, in order to be as safe as possible.
Thanks in advance!
