Ditto. In the old days, we would just say PLEASE READ THE FAQ!, only now in 1.10, the FAQ is sort of "in flux". Anyway, the gist of it is- (1) play more conservatively. Don't run heedlessly into areas (especially in NM/hell), and don't hesitate to retreat/flux when things look dodgy (multiple boss packs with the wrong mods, etc). (2) Don't trust WPs, TPs, or other people in public games that you don't know. You don't need to be rude, but don't trust them either. The PKers in HC know a HELL of a lot more what they are doing than PKers in SC, and are often far superior players than most on Bnet. (3) Regarding that, dont be tempted to "duel" (quotes intentional here) someone a lot lower level than you- they will wipe the floor with you. There is a reason they are challenging players much higher level than them, and it isn't charity.mali said:Do not die? Au Contraire!!! Die lots. Dying teaches you heaps. Dying teaches you about HC.
Well... try not to die, but be prepared to. You're gonna. Sooner or later, you're gonna.
And I'm not saying that to be mean, just a cold hard fact of reality.
Most people would say a Necromancer as a starter char, since its pretty safe and doesn't really need any gear to start with.Dakotazout said:I'm thinking about finally making a HC char...
What would be a decent necro or assassin build for HC?
and what are some general tips for a first time HC player?
