Inspect your fallen hardcore heroes

DiabloWikiThe hall of fallen heroes has saved us DiabloWiki Hardcore players character space and allowed us a chance to remember those we lost. What is has lacked is a chance to see what we were wearing at the time we passed. Well now with a lot of clicking (surprise!) you can inspect your fallen characters. Ajantis has put together a helpful video to show you how to do it.


If you’re not hip on your polish(you really should be by now) let me break it down. Basically you vigorously click between the two tabs until you achieve the desired result: seeing your fallen character intermixed with your living ones. On a side not I also managed to place all my characters in the Hall of fallen heroes, so that was scary. I can confirm that this does work and I have the shots to prove it.


It’s a nice touch to see the loot you had before you died and hopefully they don’t squash this bug but implement it, since we can clearly see it’s possible.

What do you think? Are you already logging in to try or would you rather not see those million gold items again?

  1. Nice, guess i’ll screenshot my stuff in case they squash it.

    I had actually occasionally noticed before while surfing friend list profiles, buggy intermingled characters. Wasn’t sure what was going on, but i never thought to try inspecting dead ones! Wasn’t clicking madly or anything either, probly just lag.

    Edit: you don’t need to vigorously click anything. Simply highlight the Heroes tab, then quickly click the Hall tab then Heroes tab. Worked on my very first try. This way we don’t need to spam the servers so they might just leave it as is.

    Edit2: i’ve deduced you can only inspect archived fallen heroes. Thought i’d peek at some of my buddies’ hidden deaths, but no such luck. 😛 So it appears that if you delete a fallen hero, it really is deleted from their servers.

  2. at the end he also mentions that it works not only for your chars but also when you review other ppl profiles

  3. Awesome. I had my first death on a 49 barb and was sad that I couldn’t inspect his gear after archiving, so when I suffered my next death, I put together a collage of his items before archiving so I’d always know what he had when he died.

    I hope they either make archived guys inspect-able or leave this little trick.

  4. perfect example of Blizzard CLEARLY having the capability to implement a feature but willfully choosing not to because they are lazy asses =/

    so disappointed in them these days

    • They could have easily deleted the information, like we thought. Instead they kept it around for future possibility to add stuff.

      • but they wont ADD SHIT NOW when they CAN make improvements because htey delay in order to maximize profits, buisiness business money money DERP DERP 😈

      • I’ll agree. It’s definitely not common knowledge.

        Regardless, this should’ve been a feature since day one. It’s so ghetto that I can’t view items on my Fallen Heroes that I still have three dead HC’s that I haven’t moved just so I could review their items. Thanks to this tip, I can move them out now!

  5. For me, it seems as if he is dragging the third tab onto the second tab to reveal it.

  6. Thanks for post! tried this on 10/1/12 and still works, lol i was able to see if my gear was better or worse than the last time my lvl 54 HC barb got stomped. jailer+waller+arcane dark berserkers in Wortham.

    just be patient, for me i saw all my toons (even ones removed from my archive) all in the fallen hero tab for like 10 minutes. then it finally displayed a few ( not all of the removed ones this time, but nevertheless the one i wanted) dead HC toons with inspect button
