Well i still haven't found a group to play with, and finally decided that co-op is way more fun than solo.
So i'm looking for three more mature HC fans to join me in upcoming journey.
I expect you to want to investigate the game as maximum as possible, so the first playthrough on Normal will imply
- No rush
- Complete all quests
- Investigate all dungeons
- Read all books
- Watch all cinematics and game scenes
- Though no crushing all the barrels... It's kinda waste of time, just occasional which are on the way.
I assume in ~20 hrs a group can probably beat the NM (assuming we won't read all the Lore there), so in that matter i'd like a group to be well balanced. From my point of view the best combination is
- Witch Doctor (with Bad Medicine and poison dmg skills + dogs to take some hits + any cc skill)
- Barbarian (with Ground Stomp to stun packs and War Cry to increase groups defence)
- Monk (with mantra of evasion and any healing skill)
- Wizard (with few frozing/slowing skills)
(these expectations on skills only for NM)
I am personally going to start with WD, so there are spots for Barb, Monk and Wiz.
We gonna take breaks for meals, but keep'em short (like 4-5break for 10-20 mins). Also we can consider 5 min breaks every hour (for bio, smoke break... if needed).
Anyway, that's kinda it... Skype isn't mandatory, but it's nice to have a conversation. Especially after morning when the ones we live with will wake up. And more in NM when we won't need to listen ingame dialogs. So therefore i'd like to have mature people in group with average+ english.
Also there's rough plan of what's the trip going to be
--00:01 CEST - Start SC characters and rush to 10 lvl w/o paying any attention to LORE. (Probably will take about one hour.)
-- Start HC characters and go through Normal. (it's hard to say how long it will take... probably 10-14hrs)
-- Make few runs on last boss to get a bit better gear... no fanatism though, just 5-6runs (40-60 mins)
-- Go through NM untill we want. But i expect you to stay awake untill around 22:00 of May, 15 CEST
(I didn't include breaks there since we don't have exact timings..)
damn ,,, i LOVE your presentation , it just sucks that you are going to hard core , i basicly want to do EVRYTHING the way you are doing , exept that i will start with softcore untill i finish the game , only then (a few months from now) i will dedicate myself to hardcore , the reasons for this are :
1- RMAH , i simply love the idea
2- HARDCORE death = DEATH 4 EVer ,, and i dont want that to happen to my one and only character
if you change your mind about harcore and you want to run softcore normal all the way non stop like you told , you have a BARBARIAN here redy to slay
Cheers and GOOD LUCK !
Thanks man, it's really nice to read such a response.
Also thanks for offer, but i've became addicted to HC over the years of playing this mode in D2 and just can't see myself playing SC, there's no joy for me there. Though i'm kinda starting to feel forever alone All my friends who will play D3 will be on SC and even here on Dfans it's so hard to find people to play with...
So i've found 1 more guy who's gonna play Wizard. Two spots left for Monk and Barb ideally. Though since there seems to be ridiculously small amount of HC players, we can consider taking any class. Before Hell group composition prolly won't mean that much, at least while everyone have any group-oriented skills in their build.
