    Magic or Rare? It could be from a vendor. I'd heard whisperings about there being a dupe, but I have no real information about it.

    If it's vendor sold, can buy as many as you can afford. Only rare items, when they show, seem to be limited to one.

    And so I've taken the plunge (and partly from reading how much fun/stress you guys playing hardcore are having!) and rolled my first HC character. Any general tips, aside from "play more careful". How do you know what bosses/quests to farm before moving on further in the game? how to build your gear, etc.

    Thank you, and will keep y'all posted on how it goes!

    take care

    vortex fire chains inc

    if you're melee, you'll be welcomed with vampiric fire chains. either way, just playing to SK in NM will be extremely Keanu 'whoa' for the first time

    Good luck, remember to always have an escape plan

    Grats Rata.

    On the more grinding, what's the general philosophy there? in SC, I never really needed to pay attention if anything felt above my level or not. Do you just go back a mission if/when things feel too difficult?

    And on that note...had my first death due to stupidity. Got to the pillars just before SK, killed one, and ran to the back row, while I should have obviously killed the other near one, cleared as many skeles as possible, then move to the back row. Dumb death is dumb. Glad I got it out of the way nice and early =)

    Thanks Aurik. I was lurking in this thread for a little while before deciding to take a chance on rolling a HC character. I took note of something you said you do, of having a power level set of gear, and one for farming. Though, I think (for now) I'm only going to roll one HC character at a time. I'm up to NM on my SC wizard, and that's fun/challenging enough =)

    With Rora Tips this is what i did for normal

    1-16 Act1
    16-28?average Act2
    28-33 Act 3
    33-34(35) Act 4

    Speaking like i know all of this lol but

    Repeat the act as many time as possible, if you get exemple to Belial at lv 25

    Change quest like if you just started A2 and repeat it all over (more chance at rare too)

    Also just did SK with Rora earlier in Nightmare. While he was easy, he took fking long to kill lol (had like 120k HP or something) gonna be scary for the rest lol

  15. #135

    Yeah I like 25+ for Belial. Leads to about 29-30 for A3 boss, 33+ for A4 boss.

    With my +xp set, I'm at level 7-8 before I even return the crown lol. All you really need for this is a good twink weapon (I got one for 5k) and some time checking vendors for Adventure mod gear. Next I plan on setting up a vit/socket set at 15, which given the xp/kill I'm piling on I should easily reach before the end of A1.

    148k SK hp 2man nightmare

    I like 5-6k hp to start nightmare for heroes, maybe 6-7k for barb. I had some pretty good normal gear (which now sucks in nightmare and I love that) and I feel a little sketchy 7.5k hp post-SK Fields of Misery

    I had some vampiric champion savage beasts; that affix is soo slow for my barbarian right now

    Don't forget to leverage the AH. Lots of people selling stuff at bargain bin prices (10, 20, 30k) that really can help out. 15k life now on WD at 43 Just finished opening the waterlogged passageway, so I'm about 3 dungeons from the miniboss.

    Mortar ability sucks btw. Had a mortar superunique (purple) pack that I just basically had to kite across the entire map while my haunt and minions ticked them down. 700 damage per mortar and 4+ mortars per barrage is stupid. I still think I'm going to die when I run into my first jailer-mortar pack, and there's not much I can do about that without completely hamstringing my build by dropping haunt for spirit walk.

    Thanks for the pointers guys!

    I'm actually glad I got a stupid death out of the way so early. For one thing, it's a point of the game I can easily reach in my next sitting, and it hammers home the valuable lesson of being smart and not playing carelessly, which is basically what I was doing.

    If anyone wants to ever co-op, with their backup toon or whatever, my battletag is Bagels#1747
