Just wanted to give you a fair warning.

EDIT: There is no cure for stupid.

Re: Dont do this.

Don't stupidly assume that your freshly spawned javazon should have no problems taking on the entire corpsefire zombie group by walzing in the middle of them, or you'll lose nothing but gain boatloads of shame. And when I say boatloads, I am talking about oceanworthy supertankers filled with them.

Re: Dont do this.

Oh man, sorry for the losses. I have to admit I laughed at the humour in this though (or at least perceived humour cos I can relate in some instances.)

I've never owned a windforce to lose one, but ouch!
The NM Council have completely torn apart some of my larger hp chars as well, so I know how deadly FE can be. It's a major area for caution.

Was the Summoning GC a recent find on your Bowazon? I've learnt (and take this tip from my experience,) if you find something you can use/want to use on another character (including higher runes), S&E and mule it off. :)

Best of luck with your next HC character. Do you know who you'll continue with or start?

Re: Dont do this.

Got a few parked chars + my new blizz meph runner to play around with. Got enough backup gear and newly founds(I know that I am playing hardcore so my grail has at least duplicates of the important stuff) to start a real gimmershred conviction pally when I feel focused enough.

Most lightly Ill just run meph a few more thousand times though (perhaps try to guardian the mf-er somewhere in that time) for my secret crazy longterm project that need tons of gear.

To put things in perspective im on hell meph run 2500+ and still havent seen an arachnid mesh.

The only thing Ill really miss is that Chromatic Circlet of life everlasting. It just pwnd Nighmare.

EDIT: yes that charm was recently found.

Re: Dont do this.

Too bad...
This is the very reason why I don't play Hard Core.
Too much at stake with my crappy playing style.
Which, in the first place, I doubt I'll gather enough good stuff to risk since most likely I won't reach the MF targets anyway.

Good luck and I admire your determination! :)
You'll get them back... sooner or later...

Re: Dont do this.

I am sorry for your loss. I hope you manage to find similar gear soon. HC can be tough.

Re: Dont do this.

Sorry for your loss. I know the feeling, I lost a CoH doing mf runs... Come to think of it, all the nice gear I have lost has been through doing runs of some description...

Re: Dont do this.

Thanx for all the sympaties guys. Ive already gotten over it though as p3 meph runs with 300+ mf has given me back most of the gear. The unusual gambled gear and the windforce I dont expect to see again any time soon though. The way I play hardcore (no boring stuff) will lead to the deeds of many characters so nowadays I am pretty used to it.
It still stings a bit though. For a few days.

EDIT: No I dont find mf runs boring strangely enough. Maybe it is the rewards?

Don't play hardcore if your name is Tejadia because you can't stay alive for more than a few minutes in SC.

This is a good point. I lost my Guardian Fishy doing Hell WSK runs. I think we get complacent doing runs and let our guards down .. unlike questing which keeps us alert. If you MF run, I suggest NM difficulty. A bit easier. And use all gear for making Guardians. Or go naked or untwinked.
