I wasn't sure which class would be the most fun for my HC exploration, so I made it into a game...the survivalist game. I made one of each class. I'll rotate through each class every 10 levels or so. When one of them dies, that class will not be replaced until one of the other contestants reaches 70 first. I figure it will give me a chance to get a feel for how each class plays in HC.

One observation noted with my first HC attempt (may he rest in peace), is that the playstyle in HC seems much different. Running away to live and fight another day is o.k. In SC I can go toe-to-toe and use brute force. If I die, I just come back and do it again. I also need to be more aware of survivability when selecting gear and abilities. Focusing on raw damage can leave you vulnerable.

Anyway, I think this will be a fun learning experience. Thanks to you regulars for putting out a lot of good advice in your posts. Us newbies appreciate it.

I like this idea quite a bit. I think you should update your thread with the results as this rolls on, if you can. It sounds interesting, and seems like fun discussion. In the meantime welcome to Hardcore, and be sure to have fun exploring Sanctuary!
