I'm at A3 inferno on hc.... or I was on A3 inf before my barb died to DC in act1 easymode farm, damn Ghostly Murderers in Crypts. Now I made a monk and hes in inf A2 Belial next, playing with 2 mates so can get the 50% all res buff + 20% armor from barb, other friend is playing DH.
Barbarian is just ridiculously good for HC, if MoP wasnt so close I would just make another one and clear the game. Leap, Charge, get out of trouble. Monk has none, ok Tempest Rush which is bugging time to time, you rush away from arcane beams and in 1 sec youre back where you started, cool... and Barbs WotB 15 sec immunity to ALL cc from elite packs. I like barb and have 1 on softcore as well but its just ridiculous how easy it is compared to other classes. And yeah Revenge.... well yeah, Revenge.
No deaths yet apart from that DC death. Been playing like 1,5 months on hc side I think, really like it alot more than softcore, I wouldnt play D3 without hc.

D3 hardcore: the best gaming experience I ever had in ANY game.
Sad it doesn't support the RMAH.
Hardcore RMAH would be really Cool.
60 WD - Alive A1 Inferno SK down
52 Wiz - Alive A2 Hell
60 DH - Died in A1 Inferno to the dark berserkers that spawn in Wortham. When I already killed Butcher too =|
58 Barb - Dead A3 Hell - DC'd
58 WD - Dead A3 Hell - DC'd
I don't play much anymore, may hop on to do a A3 Hell Az run unless I see some people doing A1 Inferno pubs.
As I was playing I noted that it would be quite profitable to farm Nightmare or Hell with 5 stacks. Multiple times I bought and resold weapons for 50-100k for the purpose of levelling faster, I assume many others do the same. No risk farming with decent profit!
Even gems and tomes of jewelcrafting have quite high prices.
I plan on taking my DH through to 60 tonight, possibly get to Inferno. Not sure if I will farm Inferno though as I may not have good enough gear and it'll just be an accident waiting to happen.

60 barb - Alive act 3 inferno
Level 55 Witch Doctor, still alive and kicking ass in Hell mode. Hardcore D3 is awesome.
Still waters run deep.
However the server stability issues with DC's, rubberbanding and other lag issues make the experience more nervewracking then it should be.
A large number of deaths in hardcore are due to DCs, with no option to play the game offline, this is a pretty shitty thing.
I am playing a barb right now on hardcore, my first one and hes fun, but if I die due to a dc i probably won't play hardcore again and only play softcore with my wife when she wants to do Siegebreaker runs.
I would have thought the stability issues would be resolved by now, but they are still pretty bad. And I know that not as many people are playing as there were in june.
Just started playing HC again, farming A1 Inferno on my DH. Seems very easy to get started in inferno now, spent 1.5m on DH gear for ~250 all res/35k hp/30k dps which makes A1 pretty easy mode, not really any more difficult than levelling up the character itself.
Income per hour is a lot more than softcore due to the fact low level gear is a lot more in demand, but that's offset by the fact that there is barely any great gear on the AH (so stuff costs 10m that would cost 100k on SC).
I have a Barb at 53 but without good gear it's squishy as hell, so I'm using my DH to farm up enough gold to gear him when he reaches 60. As long as I don't get too bored again, I'm going to have a crack at completing Inferno mode which should be easier after 1.05.
I had a HC barb at inferno act 2.. got it killed the same way as Kungen - alt-tabbing while waiting for the game to load, came back to find a very dead barb..
I didn't want to level another barb since my SC main is barb as well, so I went with WD since that was the only class I didn't have a lvl 60 in (SC or HC).. right now I'm midway through act 2.. hopefully I can go all the way without stupid mistakes this time around.

60 WD with Act 1 Inferno cleared, don't really feel like pressing my luck with Act 2 and up yet.
Of course I don't know how much I'll be playing D3 atm since BL2 is out and been playing that instead.
In Diablo 2, the top reason I played hardcore was because the caliber of player was much higher. You stood a MUCH higher chance of playing with an intelligent random person in hardcore D2 compared to softcore, especially on hell difficulty.
