Oh what a shame, but yes, at higher level you feel more the risk of the "bad skills". I believe that is how I lost my WD. I had to get close to get the elite down because only Zombie Charger did real damage. Firebomb could have done the trick? Maybe. But the elite had vortex, and vortexed from quite a distance. Spirit Walk and potion were the only options to keep my WD alive (the Bad Voodoo heal was too low and didn't help at all, neither the life regen from Blood Ritual), which were used up very quickly. I believe that the gear was quite important for survival, but couldn't help in such moments (I consider that elite pack as a "difficulty spikes" since I have never faced any elite pack as strong as this one before, apart from vampiric Keywarden in Act 4, where Spirit Walk was enough to get away since KW doesn't have vortex).
In the meantime, I rerolled another WD with very useful skills (imo). It was a huge difference to level him, I have to say. It felt so easy compared to Dragonsoul I. :D
Enjoy your Wiz, Wockets. He seems to be quite a strong guy to be able to level with only-found items.
Saw this thread some time ago, but have been waiting for tax money to get my new rig up and going before I could play again.
Just started last night with a new Female Monk, but I did the random a little differently. I decided to try Elective Mode random instead. Ended up with this: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/monk#WYgVSj!YdV!ZcYbcb
I rarely have much time to play, so it will be slow going. Also, it's my first crack at Hardcore, so I have to learn to be much more careful than my generally reckless style tends to be. Having never played a Monk before, it was nice to find out that basic attacks generate Spirit, which had me worried for a bit.
We will see how this project goes. I'm going only with found items and gold, no buying from vendors at all. Excess items will be salvaged for crafting, never sold for gold either.
Jannys Urthadar is my name. Female wizard is my game.
I'm going self found as well.
I noticed someone else necro-ed my thread o.O *points to SIMV n Ireth
hence i decided to start my this random challenge a second time !
I have never played a monk to lvl 60 before so o.O
SIM : how do u do elective mode random o.O I rolled a monk as well !
I realised that your monk RIP-ed @ lvl 51 ! try again and reroll !
Ireth : Boy that's a nice Dame !
sadly she perished @ lvl 19 :(
Just started this challenge. Never played HC before so this will be interesting...I think i'm going to plug in my internet cable though. lol
Class: Demon Hunter
Going to use self-found items only. No RMAH or GAH for me!
Will update with my progress when I die...
**Update:: 4/24/2013...1 hr 40 min into my character and I died...Started a new one though and beat the skeleton king.**

We'll see how this goes
LOL. Not well. Got to level 10 and foolishly tried doing the Jar of Souls event only to get waxed.
This will be tough.

post your tag !
Sounds fun I'll give it a try!
Just one question, can I use skill without rune until rune is available?
you are supposed to do that
they say you can even remove the first skill by dragging it out of screen or something
However i never tried that and got my primary skill quite early on so i didn't care
edit : wow didnt notice it was updated with MP too , the link being : http://d3.shantalya.de/hc-challenge

My first random random challenge wiz met its demise :/
Oh so sorry. He was much too young to die and a great hero.
I am finding I love this challenge if for no other reason than that it makes you try some skills you otherwise would not choose and actually use them, particularly in combinations you wouldn't otherwise use.
Well Hilandi didn't last long so I decided I would give a third and last try. I got lucky on the roll, an MP2 Monk Chamchak
Anyway, Chamchak hit level 40 this morning and is fighting his way through Nightmare mode. He's totally self found and has been fun to play. This is not a spec that I would have picked for a monk and it's really been fun trying out stuff that I would not have every in a million years have tried on my own only to find that it works!
