The biggest key is to make alternates and rotate gear. Once your character gets to level 30ish, make a new character and develop to at least level ten, dump your old gear onto them, equip what they can and keep the rest in their personal stash.
Personally I only have one alternate at a time, but I have tons of +exp gear. Doing that plus playing on high MP's, but still able to one-two shot (use high quality rubies in weapon sockets) will level you relatively quickly without having to grind.
My p13 DH died, so I just cleared normal again, level 36, no grinding, about 4-6 hours, not sure exactly. But you just have to be prepared, and realize that death is what makes HC much more thrilling. I couldn't go back to unlimited deaths, that to me is super boring.
what is hardcore if you have never felt death... learn from your mistakes... buckle up and reroll...
nonsense that hardcore players have agreed to upon signing (pushing the AGREE button) the permanent death form before entering into hardcore.

what is hardcore if you have never felt death... learn from your mistakes... buckle up and reroll...I could deal with it if it were my fault, but when you're playing and the game decides to severely lag as soon as you run into an elite pack...well, it's hard to cope with that nonsense.
I'm not saying I didn't know what I was getting into, doesn't make it any less retarded that I lose hours and hours of careful playing because of 10 seconds of lag. My internet connection is usually extremely reliable, but all it takes is a few seconds of it acting up at the wrong time and all your effort goes *poof*. That's the main reason I didn't want to play HC to begin with, and now that it's happened, I probably won't bother with it again.
Died several times now, only twice has it been my own stupidity though (biting off more than I could chew) Tonight was a stacked 58 wiz with full level reduc gear and i died in hell A2...DC
Im finding it hard not to just give up on this game, just lag spikes n DC's killing me , kinda wishing HC was an offline mode when death comes at server issues:( My templar was at 2k dps and I had a hydra out when it hit too, so anything remotely close shoulda been dead , kind too bummed to even swear at this point!
