    Predict the first Hardcore full Inferno clear date?

    The main clear Inferno date pool thread has been going for weeks, but I realized today that we don't have one for Hardcore. That seems like a much more interesting question to me, since we can all envision a party more or less zerging their way through in normal mode, but that wont' do in HC. A single death will end the fun for those players and with all the talk we've heard from Jay Wilson about how his parties have wiped dozens of times on single bosses in Act One... yikes.

    I could have worded the questions better. I meant 31-60 days for "2 months" and 61-90" days for 3 months, etc.

    3 months, but I plan on charging in head first as soon as my toon reaches Inferno. I'll most likely run back to Hell with my tail between my legs or deed.

    I voted 10+ months. If Inferno really is as hard as they say, it will take a damn long time before anyone completes Inferno. Still, I wouldn't say its impossible.

    Re: Predict the first Hardcore full Inferno clear date?

    Hard to say... it'll depend alot on how enrage timers are implemented. If all encounters are designed with soft enrages (non instant wipe oriented mechanics) then a full survivability team may be able to clear it without ever dying with a modest time increase as compared to a all out DPS group. If a few fights have instant wipe mechanics then they may need to start over a few times.

    If a few people group up and share information then it should be doable in 2-3 weeks, 1 month tops. I imagine the most efficient way of doing this would be to have a expendable group that goes ahead of the chosen survivability group and suicides/rushes content and then warns the survival group what to expect. Having several groups that do this or simply several individuals would almost guarantee that the chosen group never encounters something unknown and dies. Ofcourse if you really want to lame it you can have the scouting group do everything in softcore. Lame but probably alot more efficient.

    probably way easier in 4players party and i bet that such parties will be claiming the "rewards" - voted for 3-4 weeks. doesnt mean that someone will not die on the road...
    as going for solo i bet way longer. way way way longer. maybe even 2 months.

    Yup, same here . Seems like a reasonable amount of time...but I'm hoping to be surprised and not seeing anyone beat Hardcore Inferno for longer. :P
