#1. I master the feel of that specific class better walking through it.
#2. I make much more gold selling decent low level gear and salvaging for materials faster
#3. I have better mechanics which ultimately separates hardcore from softcore.
My level 33 DH is about to take on Diablo with 4.5k HP and 1.2K damage. I want to finish gearing up a few spots just to be sure, and take him on from there. GL Rolling that Wizzy
Diablo down! Yeah he was a lot easier than I anticipated. But I like that about this game, once you accept the challenge to take on a boss, you can't really turn back! Of course I level up way past the average level for these type of encounters, just to play safe. How are you doing so far with your Wizzy?
Nightmare is easy as of right now, considering how slow zombies are. Still in Act 1, they do hit pretty hard so I just crawl forward, clear space, and play safe. Really Hardcore is not harder than softcore, it just requires more patience and staying on top of good gear as you progress.
