    Situation was much the same for The Butcher's original appearance. No reason to expect him the first time you find him and it's a tiny room so you're not expecting anything then suddenly MMM FRESH MEAT and you get faceraped. Classic Diablo moment.

    But yeah full clearing is a tremendously good idea when playing no-twink. Not only are you finding more items, but you'll keep up or outpace the target level which is probably the biggest factor at low level. Multiple chars feeding helps on the rares front too.
    lol, I cheated a little then. by the time Eury #2 got to the A1 boss, I was lv16 / 1220 hp @Q@; Well I suppose that assbeating was good payback for lamekilling Eurydice #1.

    I've talked a few former XI LSmates into trying HC now, hooking them up a little with A1 items and gonna start a barb.

    was up to lvl 25 and died at end of act 2 with my wizard.....*sadpanda*

    Act 2 boss is hard...no shame in dying there. From what I've heard he's one of the hardest in the game, technically.

    Had an excellent game with Roranora and some ffxi friends tonight, from SK -> Act 2 Miniboss #1. Had a couple of mishaps early, but we ended up turning it into a pretty solid 4p game. Got some sick drops too.

    Also we made Roranora solo the butcher. Whoops.

    Yeah.. really fun game. My newly started barb from the 730pm post is now my highest char at lv19.

    Yar, made like 20 grand too, which I finally spent on the stash since I realized I was keeping all my gems in inventory on WD, bad idea.

    Something that is completely broken in this game -although probably by design- is the fact that when you are in melee range when the animation starts and you then move out of range, you still get hit.

    I mean, try this with one of those Ravenous Dead in OT. They are very slow. Turn on display damage numbers. Stand next to one. They raise their arm to hit. Their animation is slow enough for me to move out of range (like I would do in any other ARPG) before it hits. So I'm like 2 meters away when the blow still connects and damages me.

    Of course, stuff doesn't kill me or whatever, it's just annoying. If you've played other ARPGs extensively, this shit is so counter-intuitive lol.

    Just got to Act 4 (currently lv30) with my wizard. Act 2's boss had me shitting bricks... Act 3's boss had me shitting even more bricks. I love how on the edge of my seat this game gets me. Fucking epic.

    I'm gonna try Wizard HC hope i don't regret it

  13. #53

    So I haven't started HC yet, waiting on more server stability etc, but I'm curious, how do people plan to deal with horrible rare mob affixes? Some stuff like walling + arcane is just nuts to deal with (Mario spinning lava lines on crack) and I can't imagine just letting anything be thrown at me. Do you end up leaving game and just dealing with the area reset?

    Yeah I'm watching some of Method's Softcore Inferno livestream and they're dying all over the place haha.

    It looks, though, that they've progressed way beyond their gear because it takes forever to kill anything. I'm sure with a good amount of farming, things will be faster, easier and safer.

    E: I also sort of expect Blizz to tune Inferno based on the metrics they're gathering now.
