    First rule is we don't talk about hardcore?

    Oh yeah.. the famous Azmodan fireball. I thought just ranged classes die because of it. I tried to reproduce it on softcore quite a long time ago but did not succeed. Ww barbarians don't have to move from azmodan, they can survive all the fireball hits and puddles in the same time, even on mp10. 5 cyclones hitting Azmodan provide you with unlimited lifesteal.

    But still, its about knowledge, not luck.
    Speaking of knowledge...
    "leap" animation is laggy. You remain on your spot until animation ends and until you land to a new spot you will take damage at the spot you was standing before leap.
    Never use leap to get out of void zones, fire, to avoid projectiles, etc.
    You would survive if you choose to run instead of jumping.

    What about your stash??

    I instantly sell everything I find, when my WD died I had like 6 auctions up which got me maybe 20 mil back. I spent it all on a monk and was progressing through act 3 but I was about ready to stop playing d3 at that point. No one else played it and I just had no motivation to farm anymore. So, I basically just kept pushing until I died.

    Brother got back from a year tour in Afghanistan and still enjoys d3, apparently, so guess who has a level 51 wizard and 40 DH working on getting back to 60 =p
    I do at least still have 5 million left which should get me into farming mp0/1 I hope. Will see how long I last at 60 now, though I quit before the new crafting recipes, I'm hoping they give me something to farm that doesn't make me want to break my fingers (fuuuu legendaries/rares).

    I do have like 4000 tomes/2000 essence/1000 tears saved up, I guess my stash is good for that.

    5m should last a while, and on hardcore, those tomes can can sell for an incredible amount of cash. Just 50 alone sold for 2m for me. 4k tomes is more than you can reasonably use anyway.

    I never check prices on mats, I'm surprised it's actually that high. New recipes that are worth crafting I guess.

    Buying upgrades and using all your cash usually means I am going to die with it soon. And that is what happened to two of my chars. I started playing again but on normal lately because my internet has been dropping lately. I only have 1 HC char now that I was leveling yesterday, only 43 so it will be a while before I hit 60. Only have 500k~ and a few items in my stash before the inferno change.

    I wonder... Since you instantly ... Sell and get 20 million back ... Can be put in the same part as your "no one else plays..."

    So many ridiculous remarks on this fantastic game.

    Hardcore play in D3 is fantastic. Period.

    Recently I started a mp10 self found hardcore barbarian, and things are pretty much brutal even on normal mode. Love it.
    You are simply lying there ... 10 mp self found gear ? Unless you played for 5000 hours no way Jose.

    Mp3 yeah, but not mp 10...

    I meant my friends, not people in general. Stop being so paranoid. I know one person who still plays out of the 30-40 people I knew when it launched.

    I actually play US now, I probably have EU friends that still play and I don't even know it, but I wouldn't switch servers at this point :x

    MP10 is certainly possible even on Hardcore...in normal mode. Right now I'm rocking MP8 and nearly one-shotting Act2 normal. Why? The XP bonus is so huge that I'm nearly 8 levels ahead of the content I'm in, which means I have a more health and more damage than I would normally and it's easy to whirlwind through. By nightmare, though, the MP would have to be scaled back to a reasonable 3 or 4

    Good luck! Keep searching for upgrades and make sure you get some LoH soon.

    Not lying. I'm leveling on mp10 self found, I certainly ain't doing that on Inferno.

    Still waters run deep.

    I wish i could play HC, but atm i'm having problems with my ISP, so there isnt much i can do.

  18. #58
    I consider HC the only way to play D3 - any other way is a waste of time. The market is so bloated with items and stuff...

    I have just started playing HC during the last week. First time, too. After a long break I returned a couple of months ago and have been playing the non-HC side as self-found only so figured why not.

    It's very different so far and I'm not entirely sure I am comfortable with it but generally I think I like it. Need more time to know for sure I guess.

    I've lost all my Hardcore 60s to retard deaths, moments when you're just not concentrating... I will most likely return to it though, hitting 60 on HC is much more interesting than SC because you can't just head over to an AH oversaturated with Legendaries and buy a full set for 10 mill and then jump into MP3-5.
