    Item drop: hardcore vs softcore

    Hi, its my first post here.
    And sorry people about my english because I'm brazilian :thumbsup: .

    I would like to know if there is a difference in the quality of item drops in normal games or hardcore. I have more chances on uniques and rares on hardcore?
    Sorry ifmy question is dumb but I could not find the answer in other places.

    Thanks.

    The drops in softcore and hardcore are exactly the same; no difference at all.

    There is no difference at all between hc and sc, they are exactly the same game except for one little thing :lol: .

    Thanks Billy and Christor.

    I asked it because I saw in some guide I don´t remember that you have more chances on finding uniques in hardcore games but almost nobody talks about this so i doesn´t knew.

    Welcome to the forum! :wave:

    As already mentioned, drops work the same in hardcore as they do in softcore. No differences.

    Brazil Rocks, know many Brazillians but most play Classic and off the top of my head I only know one that is a butthead the rest are standup good people to game with.

    Only difference in HC and SC drops is if you run around here with full MF gear something will drop you and you wont get back up!!!

    Big difference!

    I thought it was stated somewhere that Ladder has a better drop quality than non-Ladder? I remember reading about something to this extent during the beta. :confused:

    In my experience, if you stand by the stash in the Rogue Camp, more items will drop in a HC game than a SC game.

    :lol:

    So true, but you also have to spam, "FREE YOU GOT FREE I NEED FREE JUST GOT HACK PKED"

    The drop rates are exactly the same between softcore and hardcore. The only difference I've heard of is the difficulty between ladder and non-ladder (no difference between SC and HC, mind you). For HC Ladder and SC Ladder, the difficulty has been "kicked up a notch" in comparison to the non-ladder counterparts. This could be just another rumor, but it makes sense since the high-lvl rune upgrades are ladder-only and there are a number of ladder-only items.

    I thought we were supposed to say SC drops are 14% better than in HC to discourage the SC crossovers ;)

    Did no one else get the memo?

    i suppose the PKs need to be feed occasionally!

    Besides what would you do wihtout all the "Need free games"? i need somewhere to lvl where i can at least keep them there a while making them think I am considering giving them something!!!

    in my experience drops are much different in Hardcore and Softcore....

    ears drop about 10 times easier in Softcore games than Hardcore

    i disagree guys. Just join a mule burn in game , and watch things drop. One mule for amusement i just watched and a cube droped and several small beginner items. One nice item droped. Most were picked up by people entering befor they became statues. No one spamed or begged it just happened. I always felt HC people were more generouse than people in SC.

    Murphy's law will call for that you will get a great drop and your lvl 90+ char will die exactly at the wrong time in hc and this great drop has a higher chance than in sc, oh sorry I didnt know we were talking about item drops and not drops. :scratch:
