Greater rifts in HC are doomed(1)Category: HardcoreJuly-17-2014 8:39 PM PDT (5 years ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
There is a new system in place on PTR for Greater rifts. It has a very good idea behind it, but it's poorly executed on Blizzard's end.
When you drop a Greater Rift Token in a Normal Rift run, instead of starting at level 1, you will open a portal to a Trial Run Rift, where based on the number of waves you complete before the timer runs out a key of some level will be rewarded to you, but here where things become interesting - the monsters are about T6 when it comes to their damage and HP in the first wave and the more waves you clear the more damage they deal, while at Wave 9 my Barb got 1 shot by a Dark Berserker.
Here is a link to the thread I started in the PTR:

This is a known issue. For the time being, it’s advised that you set the difficulty of the game to a mode you’re very confident with as ramping it up to what is considered challenging will tip the GRift difficulty inordinately out of proportion.
