Hardcore players: starting a HC character as soon as you can a suicide mission? I dread the thought of having to play a softcore character aaaaall the way through normal, nightmare, hell AND inferno only to dump him and start over with a hardcore character. I'm sure normal is quite survivable even without knowing what you're going to face, if you play extremely conservatively. The question is, other than more mods on mob packs, are the encounters very different in each difficulty in terms of scripting or do they tweak the damage and hp only? By that I mean, do you think you can employ the same tactics that worked on a normal boss on his inferno counterpart?
