Just a quick to many of you that were like me sick of the following:
Bots running and ruining the economy...
Endless grinding and in fact not even picking up rare items...(as nothing seems to sell unless its BIS.
Public games with AFKers...
I could go on with the negativity and yet what I found in HC is...
That this is the game and how it is supposed to be played. Items are cheaper on the GAH, and there is no RMAH. You grind for your items and when you get a rare you really id it hoping for something someone can use. Good rares usually sell and items are not continually recycled as when you die -and you will die- you only lose the gear you are wearing....
But not in your stash! As you level and "outgrow" your gear you stash for your twinks or for your next reincarnation.
On dieing, it's not that bad, really. I just look at it as losing in a video game and starting over, heck as many of you will agree the funnest part of this game is leveling up!
Why am I writing this? Only because I think a portion of you reading this would enjoy HC much more.
OK, now the business people of D3 will probably flame this thread. They'll post what seem to be logical arguments as they don't want to lose customers. You know those that like a friend of mine don't "play" D3 they just run bots 24/7 and make money off of the RMAH as a second source of income.

Stack vitality about equal with your main stat.
Play a Hero you have already played in SC and leveled up.
