    Fair reviving of HC character ?

    Heey you guys

    I'm currently going trough singleplayer HC.

    Then I was playing with my barbarian and my phone started ringing, there was no mobs so ran for the phone - Was expecting a kind off important call.

    When I got back I had been slain :shocked:

    I've decided to revive my character trough a Hero Editor program.

    Do you think its fair ? And what is the generally opinions about this ?

    I would say its fair because I weren't controlling my character when he died.

    Meh, i'd say no. But I would loot the char I suppose.

    You should always go to town if you are going to go afk, or in SP, just hit ESC. It really only takes 2-3 seconds max.

    If you had a computer crash, and came back to him dead, or something basically out of your hands, I would say go ahead.

    But, at the same time, its SP. Do whatever you want to have fun in SP, to me it doesn't matter.

    No, you made a choice in a game where you knew your death was final and it killed you, same as anyone else.

    Be a man and rebuild.

    Good for you man, it's a pain - especially knowing you could undo it, but we've all lost chars through silly stuff like that, it's just a part of the Hardcore experience.

    Yeah especially with this - It's a Zerk barbarian, goes so slow for normal - But you know **** it - I'm gonna do this the right way! Real Hardcore! No RRM/RWM.

    Actually, thats fully allowed :laugh:

    Makes the SP more fun, and like the SP should, just like the realms.

    Single Player
    No Ladder
    No other people

    Big question here is does it hurt you to do it?

    Re: Fair reviving of HC character ?

    I presume RWM is one that allows for ladder-only words? I could see using that. Ditto Atma. Depends on if you want to play SP for the sake of playing SP, or because you're forced to play SP but want it to be like the realms.

    RRM, on the other hand, is lame. Runes are supposed to be difficult to spot.

    But as Sting says, nobody else around who's experience you're ruining (as opposed to realm play) so do whatever you think's fun. I use SP to try out builds before I go around trading for expensive crap, so you'd better believe I use stat/item editors on it ^^

    As for the topic at hand: you only live live once.

    I don't know what rebuilding has to do with being a "man." In fact, this kind of over-serious approach to the game is part of what makes HC, for me anyway, less entertaining. Use Hero Editor, get back to where you were, keep having fun.

    If you don't enjoy HC, why are you posting here in the HC forums, it simply doesn't make sense.

    Also, since he created a Hardcore character he is clearly aware of the risks of death (the game even prompts you a second time to make sure you get it) and wants to play in a world where death is a reality. To take on that challenge, fail and then use a program to disregard the rules of the world in which he chooses to play is cheap - or in my terms "unmanly".

    You chose to play HC, you chose to go AFK outside of town, deal with the consequences or stop playing HC, there are no other choices in my honest opinion.

    Re: Fair reviving of HC character ?

    Presumably one is playing HC to begin with because of the extra thrill you get knowing that if you die, that's it, you're dead. No "mulligans" is part of the reason you get more of an adrenaline rush from play HC. Once you cheat a HC death by restoring a character after a death, you'll lose that adrenaline rush because when you've done it once you'll know you can do it again. So why even bother playing HC if you take away the most important distinguishing characteristic that makes it a thrill.
