    Do whatever appeals to you most. For my own characters, I prefer HC but that depends on how crazy the build is. I usully ask myself which one of the following questions I am more interested in:

    * How far can this build survive?

    * How far can this build still kill enemies and be fun?

    and then I decide HC or SC.




    By the way, I miss the "I blame Durf" option. :bow:

    I blame Durf!

    Most of my characters are SC, but the last five or six that I've started are HC . . . so I guess I am creeping down your list of choices.

    I prefer playing SC (I do not like loosing chars) but I do play some HC as well.

    I would be keen, except my internet is not what I would call "good". I drop about every 3 or 4 minutes and spend what ever time I have in-game lagging like a beast. But seeing as Gentles is my neighbour I get very little lag.

    Hardcore, all the way. I just find softcore way too boring.

    Since, despite five years of playing it, I rather suck at Diablo 2, I have to play SC. I make too many little mistakes, any of which can be instant death in HC. Not worth it for me.

    I play 99% SC - but that is mostly cause I am a panzy. However, I try to play them as if they were HC (I really hate dying). SC lets you have more varied builds too (Titan Sorc, etc.)

    Advantages to SC:

    Never loose equipment
    More varried builds
    Bugs (FE) are less scarry
    Less worry about IM
    Dont have to spend time leveling before facing Act Bosses

    Advantages to HC:

    Seeing the "Deeds" screen
    more excitement while playing
    getting a Guardian is Wicked Cool :)

    Time for you to decide :) :buddies:

    I play Hc almost always , because dying in sc sucks so much , that i even quit playing game for few hours. Off course if i die in hc i quit for few days , but i always come back

    HC of course it don't get any better when you loose a lvl 85 Guardian Hammerdin with Harlequin Crest and all the other nice equipment you have gathered. You can't beat the feeling

    If you're like me (easilly distracted, perfer non-standard builds and experimentation) SC is the way to go. My new Talonsin actually made it to Nightmare without dying...this is like the first time that ever happens...you do the math ;) *wonders off to find some wood to knock on*

    I'd play HC, but not while the FE bug is in existence.

    I play alot of harder builds and less powerful but fun builds so going HC doesnt appeal to me but, do what you wanna do.
