Well lag monster didn't take long, dc'd fighting the Skeleton king. GG.
So I decided to try another. I didn't go for a random challenge as I wanted to try a barb in HC...but the skills are random.

Name: Tankard
Class: Barb (female)
Skills: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/barbarian#bhiVkj!hWe!bYYaac
Leaderboard update.

this is getting quite tricky, since so many heroes have fallen, and a few others have started using other skills - moving away from the challenge. I have done my best to follow updates to heroes, or checking profiles.

in total about 60 attempts have been made here.

Furthest advancement goes to Ani - Wizard of Boomstik, RIP at level 49.
second is Prulove - Wizard of Narull, RIP at level 45
Third is Magkahn - Wizard of Rainkai, RIP at level 33
Fourth is Qapar - Monk of Stargazer - Still alive at level 33
Fifth is Kevamros - Wizard of geology - RIP at level 32
Thought I might give this a try.

This is what I rolled:

Name: Kevhand Loreweaver
Class: Barbarian
Gender: Male
Build: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/barbarian#beYdfT!dhT!ZabZbZ

Looks like I'm going to be micro-managing a lot of crowd control (something I am very bad at lol)

Will create tomorrow, sleep must come first.

Goodluck to all
Man I think I got lucky....especially for hardocre. This is gonna be my first HC toon btw, so i hope it'll turn out ok! Please tell me what you think. I really think i hit some jackpot as I might have gotten synergistic abilities.

Oh and btw, his name is Ololamin Foechuckle....male WD
So Galiron is still going strong somewhat... My witchdoc with this spec:

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/witch-doctor#SZYVkP!Xad!aZbYZa

lvl 31, got Diablo on Normal! woot.

Actually it doesn't feel like that horrible of a build, lots of damage reduction, and the heal from sacrifice and such.

Nice build man! And you got Flash Fire too... I wasn't crazy about the idea of it at first, but now I'm a bit more used to FF, and I quite like it.

Edit: I'm not a good judge of best-in-spec though, I use Corpse Spiders on my 60 WitchDoc, cause they are fun hahaha!
Thought I'd update the status of my barb (Tankard)...and bump the thread at the same time (sticky requested too...would be nice to keep this up the top).

Anyway, my barb is currently level 36 and the Skeleton King is down on Nightmare. Making my way to the Butcher. Had a couple of close calls...damn keywarden in act 4 almost got me...again (killed my last character!). My spec seems pretty good, but I don't get any more skills or runes until level 43.

I made this char a few weeks ago but have only played him the past few days, currently at lvl 38. I've had a couple close calls with Diablo (mainly the clones) and Butcher(NM). I was pretty happy with the skills roll :)

Thats an Interesting one mASHine, what is the main attack you use? Maybe it's just me but I always tend to miss when I try and use chakram, which I assume would be your main skill?

Hey Narull,

Chakram is the main attack I use along with a few Entangling shots to keep them together so Chakram can hit multiple targets easier. I use evasive fire for the stragglers and RoV just whenever but I probably should be spamming it.

Chakram can be a bit tricky to hit single targets but luckily I got the rune Razor Disk, with Razor Disk you can actually aim for targets so it will go straight for the target and then spin out from there. Now all I need is more hatred regen and gear to reduce chakram cost :)
In hopes of keeping this neat idea alive I've chosen to accept the challenge and walk the path that is random hardcore toonage. I was kinda disappointed that I rolled a barb, as I'm already playing a HC barb, but after I read all of the generated names I realized it was destined to be.. I'm pretty happy with the skill roll but I'm not enthused about seismic slam being my secondary.

Guided by the ancients and stepping up to the challenge:

Krisiries Chorster (also known as: Lady Krisiries Chorster the Barbarian, the Hero, and the Cook)

Skill spec - http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/barbarian#aeiSgP!dbX!ZYZcYY

** EDIT **

Alright.. So after tackling my first ten levels I can honestly say this is blast, yet it tests my patience all the same. Running through the game with 1 skill - no AoE, no fury spender, etc. can be amazingly tough. The ability/limitation to only engage one target at a time can complicate things considerably and makes your run of the mill encounters meaningful. Admittedly I'm having to run the crypts right now because there's no way I'm taking on the skeleton king with nothing but un-runed bash. Alas, it's a nice change of pace and adds meaning to the game in areas you'd normally just breeze through and not think twice about. Thumbs up OP for this great idea :)
Name: Frueak Dryadson (Male)
Class: Witch Doctor
Skill build: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/witch-doctor#bZXdfP!fYV!caYZZZ

Might have to struggle a bit
Name: Tamare
Sex: Female

1) fist of thunder: thunderclap
2) wave of light: pillar of ancients
3) serenity: accession
4) SSS: sustained attack
5) sweeping wind: inner storm
6) mantra of healing: circular breathing

7) transcendence
8) pacifism
9) guardians path

Sounds like a great idea :) hc only player atm, and this looks like a half decent build, spirit regen + 2h + guardians path + lots of crit looks really strong if I get to 60! Pretty keen to get started when I get home!

edit: lvl 28 now bout to go into a4 normal, looks like I got a lucky draw from the build generator the skills work fairly well together, will lvl some more tomorow and keep everyone updated, so far havent used ah yet, just crafting not sure weather to go no ah or not yet will decide later =]

edit2: monk lvl 32 just killed SK on NM, pretty exciting loving this build actually a fair bit of synergy got pretty lucky i think. Also decided to start another one and got a female dh: Acele http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/demon-hunter#WiXVTS!TfY!ZabaYY
Time for another Leaderboard update.

this is getting quite tricky, since so many heroes have fallen, and a few others have moved away from the challenge. I have done my best to follow updates to heroes and checking profiles.

Furthest advancement goes to Ani - Wizard of Boomstik, RIP at level 49.
Second is Xanian Fletcher - Demon Hunter of mASHine, alive at level 46.
Third is Prulove - Wizard of Narull, RIP at level 45.
Fourth is Tankard - Barbarian of JPG. alive at level 43.
Fifth is Qapar - Monk of Stargazer - alive at level 37.
Sixth is Corkahn, Wizard of Matez0r, RIP at level 36.
cry...RIP Tankard.

Got to level 50 and was killed by an electrified-waller mallet lord on the second level of the spire on Nightmare. Waller with a mallet lord is just cruel!

My fourth character:

Bredock
Male wizard

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/wizard#beXifk!fVd!YYZYbY

Should be interesting....

Edit: This spec is going to be tough. No passives until level 27 and 5 out of six runes are level 40+. After the mid20s I don't get any new skills/runes for around 15 levels!

Edt2: Actually, so far this spec is ok...Belial is down and I'm at level 25 currently.

Edit3: Diablo down...nightmare here I come. Currently at lvl 33...still only one passive and one rune.
