He was quite a pushover with my barb:

The most dangerous enemy for me was definitely the keywarden in silver spire 1. Even with my pretty high eHP/LoH, he got me down around half life when I killed him. The only pack I felt I needed to skip was mallet lords with the fast affix.

Thanks, guys. If anyone else needs help taking him down add me in game, I wouldn't mind beating him again.

Well, I'm trying to eventually hit 100% achievements (95% total so far), so I'll probably switch focus to SC for a bit. I'm not sure what to do next in HC, maybe beat inferno with another class or try and go for ubers.

Well done.

I'm lacking a bit... only made lvl 60 yesterday so that achievement seems unreal to me. :)

Hooray!!!! I can finally add my picture to the thread.

I can say this was by far the most satisfying screenshot to make by far!

After killing Belial only two days ago I decided to just go for it.
When Ghom went down without a hitch I was getting hopeful.
Act 3 went smooth.
Act 4 caused one or two panicky moments. But I was able to avoid that nasty keywarden by hugging the wall in Spire 1 (and getting lucky)
Also, when I saw an elite Mallot Lord pack I also worried. Did not try to fight at all. Saw the blue Mallet Lord enter the top corner of the screen and I just turned tail.

All the Act 4 bosses were nice and easy, even Diablo.

@Bort Congrats and welcome to the club!

I was the same way - if you play conservatively, then you'll end up good enough to clear the game by the time you choose to fight Belial. Smart move avoiding the A4 KW and mallet pack.

Nice! I played HC in d2, but not enough time (or nerves) to do it again in D3.... yet

Nice job Sabin! I have always wanted to build a HC player but the occasional SC lag and DC deaths have discouraged me. I might just do it anyway. lol Great achievment.

@eastdragon42 @ninjax @yoyo You guys should give it a shot. HC can be a lot more exciting. Just go into it with your main goal being to see how far you can get before you die. I actually looked forward to re-leveling when I lost my 2 DH's. It's a nice break from farming SC with your main.

You can also try to gear for lag/disconnects (my barb is very beefy and enchantress has pretty good stats to down mobs herself), but nothing will keep you 100% safe, which has some good sides IMO. If I pulled a large group of mobs my heart would start beating fast knowing that a DC could be dangerous, while there'd be no tension if I trusted the connection as my LoH would keep me safe.

To add to what sabin said.

Items you loot feels like its worth something again. My monk is geared with only 2 legendary items, all the rest are rares. So finding items still has meaning.

I had one battle on my last run in act 4 where I ran into a rare fallen angel mob with fast frozen and horde. At one point I looked up and realized my health is very low, my spirit is all but spent, and every last of my castable skills is on cooldown. And I can't outrun them. Well... adrenaline kicked in, and nothing beats the feeling when you see the end coming and then survive. Obviously there is also very few things that beat not seeing the end coming and then not surviving. ;)

And I have very bad latency. Most evenings I average 350ms. So excluding big spikes or total disconnect you should be able to gear up enough to survive the occasional bump.

My latency is the only thing stopping me from trying hardcore. I sometimes have problems in Inferno.

Bloody Australia!

@Sabin & @Bort: Hmm... maybe some day if SC actually starts to get boring & my Internet actually becomes somewhat stable, then I'll consider it. Though since I'd like to hit paragon 100 on my DH first & that's probably not going to happen for a looooong while....I guess we'll just have to wait & see. :)

@EnzyOne: Is it really that bad in Australia? I'm heading there for the holidays this weekend & am bringing a laptop so I can play every now & then..! (Oh well, maybe I'll just browse the AH & in my spare time instead...)

@eastdragon42 It can be. Our broadband services are behind the times. Give it a go, hope it does work out for you!

Oh, and I hope you love the heat. 40 degrees celcius for Christmas Day. =)

@eastdragon42 @EnzyOne I live in South Africa. I'm willing to bet you anything that our broadband service is far worse than Australia. I mean, great latency for me is 350ms. And I survived through HC, so don't let that stop you.

@Bort I plan on giving it a go once I get 5 classes to level 60. =)
