Near Death Experiences Well, I've been playing D2 for a while, but there's still tons I have to learn. I switched to Hardcore a while ago and I can safely say I don't think I can ever play Softcore again... Anyhow, yesterday I had my first near death experience-- where I didn't actually die. My friend and I were playing in a private game, I'm a Fire Sorceress, about level 22 or so at the time, and he's a Javelin Amazon. Well, we were in Tal Rasha's tomb, right at the entrance to the chamber. He'd made a tp to town, but I wasn't paying attention and instead of going to town I thought he'd already went into the chamber. Now, being a Sorc with about 80 points in Vitality I still only have about 200 or so life. So, thinking he went down and I go down, and as I'm being chased around by Duriel, I realize I'm alone. I spewn some fireballs at but after my potions start going quick I make a tp to go back to town. Unfortunately, I got stuck in a corner with Duriel charging me, and no matter how many times I clicked on the tp, I couldn't enter it. I just spewed fire, hoping I might have a chance, but it seemed apparent to me I'd die before Duriel did. I opened up my inventory and started using up the rest of my Full Rejuvs that weren't already on my belt and about ready to give up and die start frantically clicking on my tp again, and this time actually manage to make it in. My heart was racing and I was shaking so much I could barely type, but my friend says to me "Isn't it great? The adrenile rush? That's what HC is all about!" Obviously, I haven't lost enough character yet to be less than upset at almost losing one, but, it was still fun... in the long run. Oddly, I had taken down about 2/3 of Duriel's life while down there and he was an easy kill when we both went down. Tell us about your near death experiences!
