Do you have any recommendations on what variations you would make to the Arcane Orb build for Hard Core players? Here is my current build on my Hardcore Wizardhttp://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Hotiedethknt-1846/hero/39351012.
Also, do you have any recommendations on what the better value for spending Paragon points for Core, Offensive, Defensive and Utility. For example do you know of any theory crafting on say the importance of Attack speed vs CC or CD?
**Edit** Well the Wizard died in a group of 4 Wizards doing Torement 1 in Act 3 thanks to a 45 second lag spike right when we engaged a elite with arcane. My friends were unable to save me when several arcane beams were tearing me apart. ***

I have played HC exclusively for several months now. I have lost over 200 levels of Paragon Characters to HC Deaths. Most of those deaths are related to either playing solo or having game freeze, and client and or server disconnects.Posted in: Hardcore Discussion
I also have a Paragon 100 Monk, 84 Monk, 43 WD, 35 Barb, 1 DH all on HC. My simple rule sis if you playing your Main Character:
- PLAY IN A GROUP.
- USE RAID CALL or Ventrilo... Raidcall is free!!!
- Try to meet friends and Play with them, and get them in a Raid call or Ventrillo. That way they can help protect you if you are hit with a lag spike.
- Minimum 60 K Life closer to 80K better
- Minimum 550 Resist All before buffs like Barb Shout and Monk Time of Need.
- Use the GET OUT OF JAIL (Death) FREE CARD passives.like Spirit Vessel (WD), Near Death Experience (Monk).
- Under 100k DPS get Life on Hit weapons or gear. Over 100K DPS get a LS on 1 or both weapons, and if needed Barbs Mighty Belt.
- Make your BoA Gear as soon as possible at level 60. Bracers and Shoulders first they are the easiest to get decent to good rolls. Pick atleast 1 of those spots to be Vitality either Bracers, or Shoulders. Gloves are also a good choice at Vitality.
I just lost a Paragon 46 Wizard last week that had over 300 million in gear to playing Solo MP5 which I have been tearing up solo when Diablo crashes me server side since I was unable to keep Arcane Beaming down creatures. Died to 2 or 3 stupid Skeleton Archers, my Scoundrel with a Burizza was also unable to freeze them. It took over 30 seconds for the game to disconnect me.
I switched to HC because I got bored with SC after I got a Barbarian to Paragon 100 running MP0 Alk runs and then a Monk to Paragon 60 running MP0 before the Monster density packs.
Hope this information helps you can check out my characters at:http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Hotiedethknt-1846/

He had his 21st birthday in the past few days so he has been offline. But he normally starts up between 8am and 9 am PST I believe or atleast that is when I have it seen it begin.Posted in: Hardcore Discussion

The biggest problem with WW right now is the rubber banding and the near Disconnect that you get every now and then. I just lost my Paragon 18 Barb yesterday to this, I have also lost a few others to the same problem. What basically happens is you loose about 3 to 10 seconds of WW through and around creatures but you are doing no damage. But the entire time the creatures are doing damage to you. I normally potion after a 1 or 2 seconds of this happening and that most of the time works. But not yesterday I was in Act 3 Rakkis Crossing (right in front of the door with the injured guard crawling out), when I started rubber banding. I potioned my screen went from red (low life) to half life, then I started again doing no damage, and I died after about 10 seconds of doing no damage to creatures. I died to about 5 of those fire ball demon bird things (non elites).Posted in: Hardcore Discussion
my d3up profile was http://d3up.com/b/895588/hcdamdcgotme
I am in the process of leveling again and debating if I want to even mess with WW. I am trying to figure out if the problem skill is WW (hurricane) or the Sprint (Run like the Wind).

My advise would be to go a bit offensive with defensive passive and a build that will kill things quickly. I really like my current build and with my DPS and Life and Resistance I can easily kill MP1 ACT 1, and I have done MP3 act 1 easily also. With my current gear from d3up.com puts my dps at 82k and my EHP at 521K. I use Rend as my extra damage boost as I WW into a group of white creatures and let my tornados and WW finish off packs then sprint to the next group of creatures. On MP1 I do not need Wrath to kill elites but I like to have it available to me for the nasty packs of like waller, electricity, arcane, reflect, etc. I think the mistake I made with my prior Barbarians is not having the passive Nerves of Steel for the extra Armor and EHP.Posted in: Hardcore Discussion
Take a look at my build if you would like at http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Hotiedethknt-1846/hero/34519848 and my D3up.com profile is http://d3up.com/b/827982. My build is easily made into a 2 hand build with Skorn I just prefer the Duel wield for it fills smoother for me with the faster attack speed. I like my weapons of the Bul-Kathos since they are good on LoH and LS and are a lot cheaper then alot of the other weapons like Echo Fury.
I also use the Templar with the regen of fury ability also helps alot.
Hope you find the information helpful.

My Archon wizard dinged 60 last night and I am enjoying Archon but I am very squishy. What changes can I do in my build to give me more survivability. Also what recommendations do you have for me to change my gear around? I do have a Zuni Ring in stash but it is less sheat dps and life from the 2 rare rings I have. The Zuni ring has the following stats (9 max dmg, 95str, 84 dex, 88 int, 66 AR, 33 CD). I am also have a bid on a Zuni Boots or I was thinking of buying one if I do not win the current one i am bidding on.Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
I realize I have very little life and I am working on getting more purple gems and tomes to make better gems. My profile can be found at http://d3up.com/b/807630/hcguessidied. Currently I have a star emerald in the Echoing fury but I was going to change that out to a Star Ruby.
Any suggestions on gear and build would be greatly appreciated. I would prefer not to take gear from my WD that is my main cash cow for farming mp1 and 2. Her link is at http://d3up.com/b/775361
Oh currently have about 8 Million gold if I do not win the Zuni boots.
**Edit I won the Zuni boots and have them equiped.

I have heard people grief people and try to kill others on HC in public games, is this true? I was curious with the new buff to Multi player games how safe are they for HC toons on MP1. My barb is now level 20 and has 5 piece IK set so I don't want to take a chance of being PK'd.Posted in: Hardcore Discussion
ps. Battletag is listed any gear advise would be greatly appreciated have about 3.5 mil to spend.
