Just switched this past weekend. Realized that HC is the real game. Can't believe it took me that long. Hope you HC guys will accept me!!

I had over 500 hours logged on SC when i switched, 100 hours of HC > 500 SC hours

i switched in september. i figure a lot of people started with SC. just look at my demon hunter haha 150k dps (just upgraded, legacy nats set, 80k unbuffed), im the poster boy for the converted. i was getting bored of the game and thought "oh yeah i wanted to try HC at some point". when i got to level 28 or so a buddy of mine joined me, and we played through 3 characters. on my 5th character and i love it. i would consider my witch doctor my best guy :D

ive played my DH maybe 2 hours in the past 3 months lol, people still add me from time to time and i have to explain i have no interest in playing SC more than once a week or so. its great up until i die and realize theres no penalty. they should increase repair costs like 100%

why would we admit to switching from sc to hc? I admit it bc i dont care what ppl say. HC community is alot nicer in general but have an elitist attitude towards sc players. They hate us. Im switching after topping off my SC wiz. Upgrades cost about 500 mill-1 bill. And hes 93 paragon lvl. tired of grinding for that 3 mf% -.-

Started on saturday, and lost a lvl 49 saturday night due to dc.
Started on Sunday, and lost a lvl 35 sunday afternoon due to dc.
Started again, GOTA KEEP ON TRUCKING!

I went back to play Act1 and 2 on MP 10 once i feel good on act3 MP 10 ill start act4. Now im just tring to find a good solid group to play with.

After 3 months of inactivity, i decided to get back to d3 on HC rather than be bored with my old SC garbage monk (AH moved too quickly and because blizzard in charge of build diversity). Switched 2 weeks back, got my first two deaths and put it off for a week and here i am with another.

Wizard is an absolute death trap in HC. Regardless of the fact that the first HC Paragon 100 was a Wiz on the EU servers, they are tied for being the softest class in HC with DH.

I died so many times on a Wiz because I made it a vendetta to hit 60. When I finally learned how to play a Wiz (stay FAR back, and run like hell the second anything gets past the monk + barb in front of me) I had those deaths under my belt.

Most of my wiz deaths were at the end of NM A3 or start of NM Act 4 during 1.03. This was before -lvl req weps with more than -10 levels were readily available for under 7mil.

ive heard that DH and WD were worse than wiz in hc.. I cant speak from experience yet tho. Just know that i will use teleport, diamond skin, and frost nova, blur, and evocation for every build lol

WD is either the best or second best for HC since 1.04. Pets can tank crazy well, Spirit Walk is the best CC break in the game, and Spirit Vessel is a nice HC passive.I think the consensus among the HC community is (not my choices, but I am crazy)

Barb-WD----Monk-------------Wiz--DH

Mine is:

WD---------Monk--DH---------Barb----------------------------------------------Wiz

Ditto!

My only argument is that Spirit Vessel isn't just "nice" it is THE BEST PASSIVE IN THE GAME.

That sucks. You should probably get to 60 on your first char. I think if you don't get to 60 on your first character your kicked from HC and have to wait a week before creating another character to start over. Reallllly let that sink in that you belong in SC.

I switched over to HC from SC around mid-June and haven't really touched my SC Wiz since. I even upgraded my computer to accommodate HC play around July... My computer was hevily under spec for this game lol. I've had 8 deaths so far, but still pushing forward to my new goal of plvl 100... that is if I don't die to disconnect first lol...
