Greetings from your Hardcore Moderator! Welcome to your Hardcore Forum!
I'm curious how quickly people are going to start playing hardcore. I know there will be people that dive right into that immediately. I'm going to play through on softcore for a bit before I switch. Because for me, once I start playing HC I'll probably not go back to SC. That's the way it was for me in D2 at least. I imagine I'll take at least a character all the way through the game entirely before I switch to HC. Not sure. We'll see how it goes.
Really looking forward to the release. Put in for a vacation day on the 15th long time ago. Everybody knows not to bother me that day. Just got to get stocked up on Hot Pockets
I'll probably go through normal once on softcore before making a hardcore character. Most of my friends will likely play only softcore so I need to have a character there. I'll start building my hardcore character on the side, slowly and steady, that's what D2 has thought me. There's no competition, I'll go through it at my own pace.
Originally I had planned to hit HC immediately after finishing normal SC. That changed with a little more thought. I'll be starting a HC character after completing NM SC and taking a peak into Hell. MY HC character will be my serious endeavor while my SC character will be more for relaxing and trying things out before doing them on my HC character,
I spent over 10 years playing exclusively HC so I see no reason to alter my play style just because they say Inferno is difficult. Live and learn, Die and Restart !!
HC to the CORE !!!!
RAWR!!! Yeah who am I kidding... I'm very curious about the entire content of the game, but when it comes down to it I know HC is the only way to play (for me). And besides, I know I'm gonna wanna start building up my stash of HC gold asap... why accumulate anything in SC if I know the second I switch it's all going to just draw dust anyway?
