    Re: Hardcore Progression Benchmarks

    If you are going the non-AH route, for rings, I think you can usually find the x-dmg with a socket from the vendor pretty regularly. I find these types of rings to be the most useful while I'm working a character to 60.

    Finding decent weapons and shields is always a problem for me though.

    I am definently curious about mp1-5 benchmarks if anyone has that info, like how much dps is good, EHP, stuff like that would be nice.

I know you need a lot of life but all the life in the world will not help if you can't kill anything.

    At level 47 is the raid sword you can craft. I used the blacksmith on my first play thru mostly self found to keep up with item being as close to my level as possible. He has some decent armor and weapon options but you will need to roll alot of them to get good stuff. It is not really expensive until the level 60 items.

    keep checking the vendor that sells rings for a good high str/vit combo and upgrade when you see it. I think i used some crappy blue rings all the way to level 50-53 or so. but if you keep checking him you might find some good upgrades.
    thank you for The encouragement and tips! Feels good learning from others who have done it self found in HC
    for The time being I have parked My barb in act 2 nm and am playing a wiz, which is already level 32 and is a much Quicker killing machine, Even thugh I still know My barb is and will be The most durable char i have, and that she will indeed be My first level 60

    Re: Hardcore Progression Benchmarks

    Is the DPS in the charts supported by higher level gems? or did you DW? becuse I can barely scrape 200 DPS at level 30 with my selffound barb:

    edit: I took another look at my gear and I see I miss str on many pieces..damn self found, my DH is so much luckier...
