Hardcore Ironman.

Aus/NZ General Discussion
That's a pretty decent challenge in itself. MP10 HC. Maybe if my character makes it to 60, I'll think about it. :)
Well, here I am at level 51 with my WD and still no merchants and AH. Its getting harder and I am still only in Act 3 NightMare. Battles are harder and I am becoming Mana starved a lot quicker, so when I get mobbed, it tends to be panic time.

But I am enjoying it and will continue, 60 is sooooo close now. Just a little more.
I finally caved. I am at level 57, Hell, act 2, and just couldn't get anywhere. The monsters were too hard for my poor little WD with self found and crafted gear, and dieing was just around the corner.

I tend to have become rather attached to my character, so I bought about 4 pieces of gear from the AH with the money I had picked up along the way. Suddenly, I am actually dealing damage to monsters before they can take 3/4 of my life away, and I can see my experience bar moving again.

It has been a great challenge and I did manage to get to 57 without merchants or AH, so I consider that to be an achievement. I will continue to enjoy my Hardcore adventure and hope I make it to inferno; at least I have a reasonable chance of doing so now.

That's quite an achievement.

I did this pretty much with my first SC character, foolishly thinking that the game would give me what I needed w/o the ersatz ebay experience, though I did purchase a few things from vendors. Not much though, and mostly very early on. I made it to Act 3 nightmare before I got killed, and then didn't fall again until Act 2 Hell. From then on it was a litany of deaths...

So kudos to you, mate! You were probably being a little more cautious than I was but nevertheless I dips me lid.

Cheers!

Thank you Dallo. I made level 60 yesterday, which was what I was aiming for all along. Grizlor (my son) bought me a bunch of great gear as a level 60 achievement gift, so I was really chuffed. I am now wooping my way through monster butt in hell and on my way to inferno, yay.
Cheers, Septimus

My DH just hit level 60 too. Add me if you'd like to have a run together sometime: Dallo#6408

I've also got a monk and a wizard at that level too :)
Dallo, I will add you, but proly wont be able to run with you for a while. We leave on Wednesday for 5 months, so no D3 for that time :(. But if your still here when I get back, well do it for sure.

Oh and congrats on your DH

Act 2 Hell, L57 still going. Just finished Magda.

To me, Ironman is basically singleplayer offline mode - no shared storage at all, everything she owns is carried on her person. It means nearly half her carrying capacity is consumed by crafting mats and gems/tomes.
I do use in-game vendors for jewellery.

Currently 6/10 items are crafted.

Edit - On my main profile, the 5 HC 60s are all full-AH, the 5 SC 60s are all no-AH but shared stash.
