    Re: Worst Hardcore Character?

    I'll pile on to the consensus. Force armor simply makes a wizard much sturdier than a DH. WD have spirit vessel, and of course monks and barbs have innate 30% damage reduction and tons of staying alive/mitigation tools. My wizard has 7k armor without a shield. A DH probably couldn't even hit that number with a shield - and then of course there's the force armor effect on top of that.

    I'm not sure why kripp's wizard partner thought he might get one-shot. With force armor diablo couldn't even get close to one-shotting me on my wizard, not before 1.03, and not after. (I don't think they changed the fight any)

    He might be talking about the DoT. That cuts around force armor and can take quite a bit out of you if you don't have much fire resist. With typical hardcore defensive stat stacking I can't see it being a real problem though.

    They played before the 1.03 nerf. The grab attack does do a lot of damage even after it. It nearly killed the Barb at one point after he was meteored into a cage. His fire attack also made the Wizard's health drop pretty fast. I think he might have died if not for life on kill hydras.

    I love that:

    "I'm not one of these purist hardcore players that believes you have to kill every elite pack you can see. I fight the ones I know I can fight. If you think that in someway makes me less of a man ... well there's a reason I'm still alive and that's because I don't fight every pack I see."

    I have a Barb, Monk and DH at 60 in HC and my DH is by far the scariest to play.
    Everything needs to be kited to all hell and vortex or waller will ruin your day.

    I really think that something should be done to improve DH survivability in HC.

    Can it? The video never actually loads for me. I was hoping for a working link.

    It is a stream, not a VOD. It is only active when he's actually playing.

    There is one video in his archives showing him finish act 4 inferno though. The link directs me to that, you just need to click continue on the top right.
