I finally caved to HC about a week ago, and have been experimenting with using a high monster power on normal difficulty. I just started in HC so I'm effectively self found no ah. I was doing well at MP 10 with my first barb until act 4, when things got dramatically more dangerous. Are there any common knowledge tips about how to use MP to throttle difficulty vs. reward? I just started playing for the first time since release so I'm sorry if this has been gone over but I didn't see any recent threads about it. Also Stalkman #1754 Americas if anyone wants to show me the ropes/flounder with me.
