Hardcore

May 24, 2013 Lose a HC toon because of blizzard? Error 37: I had gotten an overflow error on my Computer, It caused me to exit the game. I had gotten back into the game and my brand new Hardcore toon had died. This is the 4th hardcore that has died from Blizzards end. I proceeded to call Blizzard for the 3rd time to report the bug and hope for them to revive my Barbarian. I then was relayed that there was nothing that they can do. I think this system is wrong. We spend money on a product to enjoy and turns out that we not only have to be lucky in game. but have to be lucky on blizzards end as well. I find that this system is more frustrating than helpful. I urge other players that enjoy Hardcore to post on this as well to allow the development teams to realize that there system should change. I was also told that the more Post in regards to this issue should help get the attention of managers ect. Please, as mentioned before: post your thoughts and feelings toward this issue so us as consumers can be entitled to only losing our toons stemming from our own mistakes.PepperJones7 May 24, 2013
May 24, 2013 Hardcore Death screenshot folder location-Mac Solved! http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/8891579551 I thought I would share this information with my fellow mac users. I have been looking for this folder for a long time. I finally submitted a thread in the Mac Technical Support forum for assistance. Sorry Windows users, I do not own a Windows PC. Maybe some else can chime in where this folder is located for you guys. While I was at it, I thought I would share some cool deaths.

May 24, 2013 My first double Legendary drop on same mob To my amazement I got 2 legendary from the same mob just now. It felt good considering I usually get 3 legendary total in about 6 hours of play a day. Even though they both turned out to be brimstone bound, U get to make a few more necks to see if I get an upgrade. Paragon 21 now so hopefully they will start dropping more often. Had to share, sorry if it offends those who this happens to all the time.Moozz15 May 24, 2013

May 24, 2013 Public Game Enhancement How many of you encounter the same time wasted going into a public game, then to know that the run is in fact over and worse thing is new players keep joining and wasting their time to explore maps which had already been clear? Just wondering if it is possible to do something about this?Ducati8 May 24, 2013

May 24, 2013 WD's Am I missing something I put gruesome feast on and grave justice and don't see how they are really that helpful. What kind of pickup radius do you need to run for it to be worth it? I have a thing of the deep but no other pickup radius and hardly notice it really helping with mana.Running spiritual attunement keeps my mana up 10x better at first glimpse. Also can someone explain to me why gruesome feast is good at all considering the affect only lasts for 10 seconds?Theboss17 May 24, 2013
May 24, 2013 RIP and I am out until DC is fixed Last toon died in a blaze of glory. I was happy and excited! This toon died to yet another game lock up. 15 hours in, just regeared at lvl 60 and bam, I open a door, electrified blue bat right there and game freezes! 100K health! dead! I am tired of hitting myself with a stick and hearing that this is just part of the game! I have done everything in the forums and that customer service can offer to keep this from happening. I have literally spend hundreds of dollars on upgrading my system, which I must admit has greatly reduced the problem. Even once in 15 hours of game play is inexcusable. Blizzard can prevent this but because of game play and "possible" cheating issues they have chosen not to prevent this. IMHO and I am sure to anyone that this happens to, this is the wrong decision. It is their choice of course, so I yield to their wisdom and for now I am tired of it and consider Diablo III to be unplayable in HC mode Performance monitor shows the CPU usage dropping from 12% to 3% followed 10 seconds later with the network activity dropping. This to me does not look like a DC but a game client lockup. And dyes I have the latest driver from this month. I wonder how may players, HC or SC, would be happy if after every 15 or so hours just logged on to find there best geared toon to have been deleted? Then to be told that it is part of the game.PoolQ7 May 24, 2013

May 24, 2013 RIP Fear (i think that was his name) Was playing solo in nightmare, working my way to belial. Opened the game to public. A barb and a DH join. We kill belial no prob. The DH had low stats overall but was managing. Then we start A3. Me and the other barb are just sorting the items we just picked up from belial. When i'm done I port to the DH... just as he dies. He didn't get far, just on the stairs when you get swarmed by a few green guys to start the level. He left, sent me and the other barb rage messages for staying in town and not helping him. He was either undergreared or got a big of lag. i dunno. don't think it was fair to blame us for just sorting some items while he ran ahead, but i feel bad for him/her nonetheless.. anyways RIP.Thunder0 May 24, 2013
May 24, 2013 HC WD's Plz Help Im trying to get my WD, thru act 4 and complete inferno. I am unsure if my current set-up/gear can handle it.

I am not super rich and can't afford the more expensive zuni pieces.Kilo5 May 24, 2013

May 24, 2013 Looking for suggestions on my gear (Monk) Hi all, I currently farm in MP2 without much difficulty, and would like to progress to around 5-6 MP, and get my DPS higher (maybe to ~100k). What sort of stats do I need for MP5? Here is the current stats - http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Huriphoonado-1775/hero/27800951 Does anyone have suggestions as to gear I should be looking for? Should I be mixing up my build at all? I think maybe I should be looking to get 170+dex nats boots next, and then getting a nats ring for the crit chance bonus? Should I consider dual wielding? Thanks for any advice you might have. Edit: I should mention that I currently have 22 mil, but I just want to know what I should be working towards.Huriphoonado9 May 24, 2013
May 24, 2013 Anyone want to farm MP1? I have been doing Act 2 MP1 Black Canyon Mines Sewers Desolate Sands Howling Winds Road to Alcarnus Dahlgur Oasis Side Areas: Most of them but there are a few that aren't good for density such as Siricco Caverns, Vile Caverns, and Cave of the Betrayer. The rest I will do. If you want to do MP1 Act 1, 2, 3, or 4. Let me know, better to do it in a group who follows each other rather in a PUG where they do like 3 zones and exit.

May 24, 2013 Apprentice achieves mastery (Paragon 100 Wiz) http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/MrDeAtH-1112/hero/30816577 http://i.imgur.com/QywWzql.jpg http://i.imgur.com/LEPzJwz.jpg and a final birthday bonus: http://i.imgur.com/ii7fSig.jpg --- A few months ago, I decided to challenge myself with the toughest class in Hardcore, the one with the least paragon 100's. And so Apprentice, the wizard, was born. I chose her name as it humbly understates how powerful she will become once she proves herself. Today she reaches her goal of paragon 100. --- The data and chart of my exp/hour progression (in millions): http://i.imgur.com/AqugvhX.jpg (Prior to 1.0.8, I had reached about 65 to 70 mil exp/hr with a hellfire ring + ruby in helm, and I actually put off leveling her for many weeks because I knew how much of an exp jump the patch would bring!) - I had thought getting to 100 would be a lonely endeavor, but the new patch allowed me to ding with a wonderful team of great warriors. Team play is definitely one of the best things to happen to D3 recently. - Shout-out to Lucid8 (Billy, WD), who gained Paragon 100 one game before me. Also shout-outs to Yaminokame (Daimao, WD), and Isolation (GabieMaBelle, WD), fellow warriors who I've personally seen reach para100 this week! I've always wanted Isolation to reach 100 safely after I read that post that his WD was named after his GF (I think, could be wrong, lol). - (pic) Apprentice in her early years. Blackthorne's set + Chantodo's set for a hybrid archon build, at 93k dps? Living the HC dream! http://i.imgur.com/BUn3LvN.jpg - (pic) Today, 487k dps Improved Archon beam? http://i.imgur.com/nrCEUVJ.jpg - (pic) 219 hours, 43 minutes (I did lots of chatting, crafting, and even powerleveling people when I started out, to get some cash though.) http://i.imgur.com/UN1dj45.jpg All my gear: - I crafted all my armors because when the crafting patch came out, I figured it was cheaper for me to craft all slots and sell off the sellable armors (ie. my Blackthorne's set, for about 100 mil at the time). - Found my mempo in Rakkis Crossing around paragon 50 or so. - At paragon 92, I found my beautiful Echoing Fury... one of the highest damage wizard weapons on the server. It is worth billions, so you can say I found a billion dollar weapon. - Hellfire ring... well, I rolled a few of them, but I definitely beat the odds on this one - Nat's set... paid 70 mil for the ring and about 56 mil for the boots (I had to bid and go to work). - Witching Hour Belt, bought for 200mil: I found a decent Zunimassa's Marrow, sold for about 170mil, plus proceeds from savings... dropped all my money at that time on this. - Triumvirate: paid 30 milMrDeAtH29 May 24, 2013
May 23, 2013 Rest In Piece So today i was playing my hardcore WD farming A1 mp1, why not right; Anyhows after i jumped into the hollow i realized that i was dc'd. (in skype call) Came back; Checked my stats and saw that I died to a white mob, Goodbye Witch Doctor! Anyways, Sad to announce first level 60 death, especially due to a disconnect, so yeah; Whats your stories? When was your first level 60 death and how did it happen? I'm eager to see this take off. :) (there are probably heaps of threads like this, but still, i thought "why not create a forum post" so, Sorry. :/ )Sourcoke12 May 23, 2013
May 23, 2013 1H+Shield or DW for leveling? So, I looked at a lot of monks in the forums and saw that they all ran with 1h+shield, but they were all level 60+ already. Should I do the same while leveling, or should I continue to do as I am now and take advantage of the high level gems I have and dual wield until I get to around 60? I made it to 50 just fine on my last character with dw, until there was a server shutdown...my fault for playing on a Tuesday.Tex4 May 23, 2013

May 23, 2013 Selling MY Hardcore First I want to say I have a tremendous amount of respect for all of you in this community. I lost my backup Barb tonight to a game freeze. I tried to alt-del and open task manager but it was locked up so bad the windows icon was a blizzard sword. I could not get the game to end and i'm sure you know the rest. RIP mighty Achilles. I have no desire to spend 100's of more hours on my other Barb and Wiz only to loose them eventually to a DC I have no control over. So I'm selling out. All my wiz gear, all my other Barb gear, and the Level 46 monk I was bringing up. I'm also selling my stash items of which there is only a couple legendary items most note worthy a tal rasha source and blackthorn boots (which are not really note worthy). I have 40-100 flawless square gems of each type. The Barb I lost tonight had the nice echo fury unfortunately. Plus, aprox. 6.5M hardcore gold. I'll sell it all for the most softcore gold i'm offered. I'm out. peace brother and sisters, stay safe!Prology15 May 23, 2013
May 23, 2013 Returning HC player, DC 1 : Player 0 After 6 months of being away from the game, I decided to start up again with friends. We 'just' hit 60 and started farming and I died to a d/c. Glad to see they are still the prime culprit of HC deaths. GG and QQ I understand HC is at your own risk type of experience but they need to implement something to help fight this. It sucks because HC is the only enjoyable way to play D3, seeing how SC's economy is god awful...Rad5 May 23, 2013

May 23, 2013 Manajuma poison cloud and you. Topic says it all. Do you use bad medicine with it? It gives 20% bonus to melee in that situation?What if you were a fire based doc like myself? Due to using non-poison based attacks would Jungle Fortitude be a better overall passive choice then? How much does the poison cloud damage critters for? Thanks.Anjinsan2 May 23, 2013
May 23, 2013 New WD in the house Hello people! I have played barb since the game released but when i lost my last barb on HC my friend dared me to play a new class so here I am. I know nothing about WD's and I don't know what build is good or bad. So before I die if you have any sort of what to build or not to build input that would be much appreciated! Also I've tried looking up builds but they just look weird to me.BluEyedDemon2 May 23, 2013
May 23, 2013 Self-found/Looted Monk Well hello all, haven't been on the forums much just a lurker finally coming to the surface. Seems the hardcore community is keen for story-telling and I have a story. First, my monk HCvardoger. I'm so proud of myself. I've crafted everything and found everything I have on. The legendary weapon was when I was playing a public game with 3 wd's and one found it, he offered it pretty cheap, I definetly accepted. So it's been going good so far. Near Death Experience only has popped once. I dont feel ready for mp1 yet, getting closer though! Have a good day.AnthonyM6 May 23, 2013
May 23, 2013 Hey HC monks, do you rely on dodge at all? What's your opinion on dodge based skills like MoE or Guardian's Path? I guess Guardians Path get's trumped by OWE, STI, NDE in terms of survivability, but I'm curious to see if any of you guys try the dodge skills over other methods of defense. I'd like to try out MoE + Guardians Path, but if the HC monk bros know it's pointless and risky then I won't bother.Dolla24 May 23, 2013

May 23, 2013 Onto the next... Welp. My first solid attempt at HC and I made it to 54 before getting swarmed in A3 Hell by an Illusion, Nightmare, Molten mob. Feared into the illusion group.

May 23, 2013 Would like to play in public but..... I am a bit concerned about PKers and general dip!@#$s. So far the HC community looks to be very friendly and helpful. Is it the same in public games? What should I watch out for when I do join public games? Any tips would be appreciated! I am also looking into ways of protecting myself in the event of a DC or PK encounter. If I alt tab out of a game on my home pc and close the client but have my laptop handy with the log in screen already open can I log in right away on my laptop and pull my hero out of the game he/she is stuck in?KillerElite15 May 23, 2013
May 23, 2013 Thinking of joining you all.. Once I get my SC barb to 100 (this make take a while still as I don't play as much as I used to) but I was wondering the consensus on which is the best/easiest class to play in HC? I do enjoy melee fighting, but am willing to try out range if that's what most seem to think is the best. Thanks in advance!LordZeus31 May 23, 2013
May 23, 2013 Took a hiatus til1.08. Wizard:Inferno Act 1 Took a hiatus from Diablo since the month after release and now I'm back in 1.08. Now, I finally tasted Inferno (be it SC or HC) and... Now what? I'm not entirely sure what to improve first. My DPS? My Resists? According to D3UP, I have 23.9k DPS and 46k HP, ~400 Resists with 2.8k Armor (w/o Prismatic Armor). I heard somewhere along the lines of 40k DPS 600-700 Resists, 4-5k armor being necessary for clearing Inferno but Im' having a swell time going through mobs in MP0 Act 1 with what I have now. I know I can search for X or Y targets for DPS/EHP but can someone give me the rundown based on my items for my P2 Wizard?Chaesang4 May 23, 2013
