Got killed by air in hardcore

Posts: 607
I've noticed this in SC and HC (unfortunately).

In HC, I lost my lvl 38 DH - my hp dropped precipitously. There was a nearby green poison cloud (from one of the sprouts from those tree monsters in act1), but I was certainly yards from touching it. When I look in character archives, is says cause of death "unknown".

Sounds fishy to me... would love to get my character if possible if the death was not legit (esp since that was my highest HC level character). If not, at the very least would be nice to find out why i died.

Losing motivation to play HC.. I've lost 3 characters so far, the other 2 were from lag.

I suspect what's happened is that the old lag monster got you again. While you thought you were far away from the poison, you were in fact closer to it, from the servers point of view.

Not trying to defend Blizzard in any way, but my personal experiences with Hardcore have been positive, and I've never died as a result of lag or disconnect. I do however sympathise with your losses, as I know it can be very disconcerting losing a high level character. With perseverence you'll get there in the end.
