    Done, finally. 100% solo from start to end, every quest, every boss, no backup cannon to tank for, no extra set of buffs or cc to benefit from, just pure brute force! Diablo is def. the toughest fight, unless you use the exploit with the shadows (which I didn't). Cydea is pretty hard too - very high gear check. I used Crushing Advance on Ghom, which made it easy, but I suppose it would be way more difficult if I didn't. The other bosses were all smaller gear checks. Obviously still can't get hit by orb on Azmodan, don't want to let Izual or Iskatu get out of hand, so it's a little more than gear.

    I'll post my gear later, and is there any interest in a bit of a writeup/guide on HC Inferno? I know many people are in A1/starting A2, but A3 is somewhat of a wall, I could share my thoughts and hopefully help out anyone planning to take on the challenge.

    Great job!
    I'm definitely interested in the writeup. Did you skip any nasty packs? Any DPS benchmarks / skill tips for the bosses? Follower choice / gear?

    Just to point out: Azmodan's fireball does more damage the further it travels. If it hits you in melee it shouldn't do more than 25%, likely less since HC means full defense is the only option. If it hits you from a screen away while you're dodging lava... probably a OHKO no matter what. Be very careful on how you approach him but aside from that his fireball shouldn't be that big a deal.

    Right, it's not dangerous in melee, only when you're returning after the lava run-around.

    If you make it to level 60, in A1 Inferno, I'll reward you with a solid farming weapon.

    Big congrats to you, sir!

    I (and I'm sure others) would be interested on your thoughts on the journey, what made you tear out your hair, what was fun, etc.

    Congrats! I for one would love to see a guide with your advice for other aspiring HC players. What's next? Do you think it is currently doable by any other classes solo?

    Monk and Witch Doctor have both solo'ed it as well. I can't imagine either of the other 2 classes doing it without an extreme amount of luck.

    I'd like to hear how you dealt with annoying elite packs... Phase Beasts, Malachors... those freakin OPPRESSORS...

    The bosses have nothing on those guys (except Ghom, who Barbs lol at anyways).

    Yeah I'm doing a small guide on it. I haven't seen an oppressor pack though :) I did get a nasty Corrupt Angel pack that played football with my poor barb (when they charge it knocks you, and they also had teleport molten plagued, it was a positioning hell).
