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. ***

Dec 20, 2013I 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. 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:Posted in: Hardcore Discussion
- 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.
Jul 28, 2013The 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).
Jul 7, 2013hotiedethknt posted a message on Recently hit level 60 and recently got into Inferno w/ barb. Skills help plz.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.
Jun 27, 2013My 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.
May 20, 2013I 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.
Apr 1, 2013hotiedethknt posted a message on Help Good Monk build for uber mp 10 (being carried)?thanks guys for the insights but do you actually have a build template or any of your profiles good to look at?Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
Mar 30, 2013hotiedethknt posted a message on Help Good Monk build for uber mp 10 (being carried)?I was hoping some one may have a good support monk build when being carried in a mp10 ubers run. So I don't feel like a complete waist and not contributing to the run to make it faster. I am looking for one that has decent dps but more important survivability.Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
Any help would be appreciated.

Mar 28, 2013Thank you for the new build for the people not as geared. I have gotten some really good runs on mp10 now and also some God awful ones. I wish I found this many elites on my old mp0 runs of crater. It seems like on the runs that go really bad I get 3 elites right next to the big packs of scorpions. I am finding like 7 elite packs per fast run at times. But thanks for your help I appreciate it. I had 1 run that had 170 mil exp per hour... while my crappy run was like 18 mil LOL.Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
Mar 23, 2013What all do I need to upgrade to get this build to work? I know my Resist all is really low but I only have a budget of 33 Mil gold atm.Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
I can sell off my Barbarian Gear since he is paragon 100 and don't play him any more that might get me 100 million more gear. With a paragon 100 I have never been lucky and got the massive gold or even RLAH item drop. Most money I have ever gotten for a sell of something I found was about 55 million gold after the 15% auction fee.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
