Flux is joined by Wolfpaq and new columnist Xanth for a mega-discussion about all things Hardcore. In part two the topics include the Hardcore community and eliltism, the lack of Real Money Trading in HC, the Hardcore Arena, and more.
The fortieth episode of The Diablo Podcast is part two of a two part show (see part 1), in which we put Hardcore mode under the microscope. This show concludes our Hardcore discussion, and includes conversation about the Hardcore community and how it’s generally more co-op than Softcore, corpse looting and life without a PK switch, trading and the likely impact of no RMT in HC, the likely differences in builds between HC and SC in D3 (which should be noticeable, since HC chars can’t just manually allocate more Vitality points in D3), and the Hardcore Arena.
