Starting a game with my HC Barb!!
Im level 9 almost there - if ya wanna wait 10 minutes Ill join ya .... Interestingly enough, ive died 3 times so far in SC ...
I'm gonna stay solo today, I want to run through the beginning at my own pace.
ok Pm me your battlenet ID so I can add u.. Im Hellswraith#1116 , characters name is TheDarkSide !!
lvl 10 SC, Monk - complete
so incredibly easy
SK is a weakling
almost makes me want to change my mind and play Monk in HC,
nah, staying with Wizard
lvl 3 HC,
8:33 am, should try to go to work
It seemed like it took forever to get my first toon to 10. Even though she easily whipped SK I was kind of nervous when my hardcore toon fought him. So far, so good.
Made lvl 10 & killed Leoric still using a zero req dagger. Got a nice rare bow 10.1 dps zero req. Got an awesome rare 17.1 dps Sickle, and a pretty nice magical 15.1 Sickle. Time to dual wield!!
Actually time to eat some breakfast and put on some more coffee before I venture futher.
Oh, I am so envious right now.
I still have hours to wait before I can even start that junk SC character I'm forced to create.
My total dps is 38.01 at lvl 10. I got lucky with my first trip to the ring vendor, he was selling Scouting Ring of Wounding. +1-2 Damage & 5% Magic find. Had just enough gold to buy two. Got pretty lucky with the first breeches I crafted, +11 Str, +6 Vit, 5% Magic Find. My total MF is 36%.
Yikes first close call. Got taken down to 19 health.
Woof, you almost got the start the "Post your first death" thread.
I'm wondering how many won't actually admit to theirs, haha.
We will have a Deeds thread just like we did for D2. I don't want to be the first for that!
Zappa, how are you finding the difficulty so far? Are you playing conservatively and stress over every boss pack, or more or less relaxed?
I'm a bit surprised that no one has reported any HC deaths yet, since others have been saying they've died quite a bit in SC.
Or does no one want to admit being the first!
I'd die a few times for sure if I went straight to HC. Some of it comes really unexpectedly with almost no time to react, especially for melee class.
I think ranged is easier in HC if you play carefully, e.g. pulling each pack separately from edge of vision, etc.
I'm playing pretty cautiously. I was playing pretty bold when I first beat SK, went to my usual dual-wielding Sickles with the two that SK dropped. Got beat down to 19 in that first new big field and decided to use a shield lol. Definitely managing the cool-downs for Stomp & potions that's for sure. Potions are basically a one-shot deal because of the long cool-down.
I am loving the new areas past SK.
I think that's where I died for the first time Not the field, but one of the few next ones.
that's good to know...have yet to really be able to dig into the game (tonight for a few hours). But once i unlock HC ill have to watch out for those pitfalls.
No deeds yet but I was so exhausted I passed out in my chair for a couple hours.
LOL - just woke up and ready to go now.
Im currently level 7 and The Fields of Misery are much harder than anything we saw in beta. Ive had several close calls - "The Old Man" ( a tree boss) almost deeded me with his poison attacks. Im definately not going to dual weild in HC, gonna play it safe with a sword and board build. Havent found any good items yet or crafted anything exciting yet.
The game is very interesting and refreshing past the SK, cant wait to get to act 2....
I don't have spoilers in the subject so please lets not post any. Thanks!
