    As for griefing, I haven't encountered any so far, though not all players are as verbal and communicate as well as others, so I have once managed to join a PLVL 63 WD with my then PLVL 1 DH, and since I got no answer on my "is it safe" question, I bannerported to him, only to see TONS of mobs there, and I do mean in the worst sorta' way... festering woods WP, no route is safe... barely managed to esacpe.

    It surely wasn't his fault, but as I said, not all HC players are as good at communicating as we are.

    Btw, that comment about vault totally won you over in my book, you DH fan, you...

    JRSILVA... that DH of yours is going to be a legend! Can't wait to leech off him in mp3+ games! I can even do a Flux and carry a raising sun by your side! hehe
    Man, you are too much, hehehe! Well just by being there, with your personality and way of playing and behaving in the game, it will be worth it. Nevertheless, I am quite sure you will evolve your char and be more than able to make a positive contribution. I will do my best to help you out with some items too, since I already promissed you that any upgrades I score mean that the old ones are yours.

    Cheers

    Re: HC Demonhunters!.. How are you guys doing?

    I appreciate it, bro! Believe it or not, but during these last months of struggling with my connection and deciding whether to play SC, HC or no D3 at all, you've been a huge factor in keeping me playing, and dragging me back to the dark and mortal side! hehe.

    Thanks for the compliments, and I truly look forward to the day I can repay the favor.. perhaps when that crit mempo drops for me, eh?

    Gogo DH's! We NEED to get one to PLVL 100 on the forum!

    Re: HC Demonhunters!.. How are you guys doing?

    Well there is nothing to repay, really. And I am also quite touched with your kind words. The way you can "repay" is to keep on showing up with your good spirits and team up. That is more than enough for me. Of course a crit Mempo would be nice too, hehehehe

    Re: HC Demonhunters!.. How are you guys doing?

    Slowly working my way towards lvl 60.
    Just finished Nightmare and spent some time digging through my stash and leftovers stash on the AH. Bought 1 hand crossbow and am now on a 50K budget for this babe, minus the gems

    Had 1 frickin' close call on the Spire 2. Dunno what happened exactly, screen just turned red and life was at 10% or thereabouts... This was actually after I had moved OUT of some chaotic fighting, so I'm guessing it was 1 or more hits that rode in on a little lagspike.

    Re: HC Demonhunters!.. How are you guys doing?

    Now that I lost my P24 WD (doh!) its time to focus on my DH who's working her way through nightmare difficulty at the moment. So far she's been a lot of fun. I like the fast play style and am particularly fond of bola shot for the tick..tick..BOOM! effect =)

    Here she is - playing self-found on all my HC characters. http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/H.../hero/33441922

    Question for the rest of you - what follower do you like while solo leveling?

    Got to 51 and starting act 4 NM now! Been pretty safe for the most part, nothing too dangerous. I'm trying to figure out why my life is so much lower than oompie's though. I have more vitality but almost 7k less life. Of course perfectionist makes up for about 2.5k of that, but I'm still confused.

    Been trying out Ball lightning, and it's a pretty good skill. I also use twin chakram and rapid fire on occasion.

    Re: HC Demonhunters!.. How are you guys doing?

    I think that may be caused by lack of character levels.
    It's nothing I ever calculated or anything, but I have the feeling that character levels up to 60 add more than just the standard vit effect to your health pool. As if some levelbased percentage is applied. At the moment you seem to have caught up nicely though, since you have 7K more now

    My babe is sitting @58 right now. I was plowing along in public games slowly whittling away at enemies when Santa came to town in the form of jrsilva who came bearing gifts
    So now she's wielding two lvl redux hand crossbows and destroying all. AND she has a Vile Ward waiting for her when (or should I say if ) the big six-oh will be achieved.

    Skills are roughly the same, although I swap out caltrops for Marked for Death when fighting bosses. Having 4 slots on the skillbar assigned to escape skills may seem overkill, but damn... I feel like I need them =))

    It's too bad though, compared to my barb's "safety" skills the demonhyunter's safety skills are mostly just that... escapes...
    Except maybe Gloom, which you could compare to Warcry if you really wanted to, since it allows you to be more "in your face" soaking up damage while dishing it out. Caltrops/Vault/Preparation are all in the vein of Leap - "Oh ****/GTFO of here"...
    Not like you can WotB your way out of danger by simply wrecking everything in your path, etc... So I feel a little gimped, but on the oter hand I'm loving the playstyle so far. Every lagspike makes me crap my pants though...

    [TLDR]Made lvl 58 and jrsilva is one generous dude! Hopefully tonight she'll be 60 and able to put on all the stuff sitting in stash[/TLDR]

    Glad to help out mate. And I do hope I can help you out a bit more when you hit 60, hehehe

    Re: HC Demonhunters!.. How are you guys doing?

    Yea, the character kennel must account for more than you would think. But yes, picked up some new vit gear last night.

    Got a nice group this morning and burned through all of hell act 1 and half of act 2.

    I've actually seen mostly DH and WD classes while leveling. I see very few barbs and monks, which is surprising. We'll see if that changes once I'm in inferno.

    Re: HC Demonhunters!.. How are you guys doing?

    Killed inferno diablo for the first time just last week on my DH

    Went without using the ah up to the end of a2 but then after not getting the monster density changes to mp0 I got a few upgrades from the ah anyway to get past belial safely(-ish :P) and finished the game off without much trouble to be honest. ~40k dps 700-800AR (with boar) and ~55khp

    Nothing seems to work better than ball lightning for me so that's what I'm going with, along with evasive fire: covering fire, preparation: battle scars, smoke screen: lingering fog, vault: tumble and boar companion and the passives Perfectionist, tactical advantage and archery.
    http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/h.../hero/15586149

    Did not like covering fire initially because of the chance of encountering a fast monster pack draining you of discipline, but teamed up with battle tactics and vault I think I've learned how to use it well enough so that isn't really an issue anymore. If I Do encounter some really fast pack of monsters I just take it slower, getting few shots and battle-tactics-vaults in there where I can to regen hatred and discipline but there hasn't been anything I haven't been able to deal with yet (not powerful enough for any MP yet however). Now I try to use evasive fire over vault when I can for the cheaper backflip and tactical advantage, and vault when I need to go through a group of monsters to get to a better position or to pick up health globes if I have to.

    Smoke screen I rarely ever use (can't remember last time I did) so I have been considering dropping it for something else but so far I haven't dared doing so because it is a nice safety to have, should I somehow get caught in an unlucky frozen explosion in a bad position..

    Got another selffound DH which hasn't touched the ah yet which just hit level 60, hopefully monster density will be improved in mp0 for when I go back to it :P

    Stay safe out there fellow DHs
