    My HC barb is up to level 15 right now. I had a higher level guy hook me up with a 5-28 dmg 8% life steel sword. I'm on the Horadric Malus quest. If any of you guys on USWest feel like starting a hardcore character I can hook you up with some starting cash and maybe some items. Besides, I need some clanies to play with so if I die or something you can loot my corpse. Of course, I don't plan on dying. I'm playing this character extra conservative... like, I got my barb up to level 15 by staying in the Cold Plains and the Stoney Field. :eek:

    :)

    sounds like what I did with my HC sorc on East.

    I got really nervous after loosing one char in the underground passage and 2 to Pitspawn Helldog in the catacombs. :(

    of course, Auto will just now point out that I'm a pansy. ;)

    You just need to know the areas to stay away from.

    haha, you're all pansies!! nah, actually the first few HCs you make will be all wrong and die no matter what you do until you adjust. just dont push it TOO much and steer clear of the arcane sanctuary, that place is a death trap.

    I'm level 18 now. Just got Leap Attack. I also gambled a 36% tarn and Blinkbat's Form my first tries. Lucky me, eh? (hehe, I sound Canadian... hmmm :D )

    I think I'll take on Andariel soon.

    Sorry, you haven't passed the entrance exam to become a Canadian yet. The test involves running away from an amourous moose in -40 degree below weather while trying to slip on long-johns. Usually we make it interesting by loading you up with REAL beer and peppering you with hockey trivia questions (Who's Dick Irvin? Who's Howie Meeker? What's up with Don Cherry's shirts?). It shouldn't be too hard, kids in our country pass this test just to get into school... We do this on the weekends for fun, you see.

    mmmm pepper... :drool: I was lvl 23 before I took on andariel with my first HC guy, and he killed her in one hit... after that I kinda went down hill, and he ended up dying in the halls of the dead (good thing I had no good stuff... no clannies were on...) so I know how much it sucks... but now I have a HC palladin that is kicking some ass and has lenmoyo, iron jang bong, a Nicely gemmed skullcap, and sopme other nice stuff... if any of you want to make some East chars...

    Ummmm, Auto, who are you talking about? Now that sparhawk and Az are doing HC on West, the only active player on West who isn't doing HC yet is Cow.

    I've sorta lost interest in Diablo 2. I'm waiting for the expansion to come out before I start playing again. Lately I've been playing lots of starcraft.

    For some reason the 46% tarn on my sor is turning her into a hunting machine, 53 rares and 1 unique in 1 chaos, sounds neat. I'm going to do some items and money hunting for you guys.

    Spike got to lvl with his sor. He's kinda conservatice compare to me lol. I was in act4 hell at that lvl...

    Anyways, if you guys see me online, make sure you come pick up your hc greeting items and cash. I offer to all clannies who joins hc a present.

    So try to reach me. Believe me, you don't want to be too conservatif in hc because if you die, you have wasted more time on the way.

    Getting lvl 15 in cold plains sound to be a month of work to me, anyway, you should be ok in act2 sewers at lvl 13, at least you can see your exp bar moving :)

    See you guys on bnet.

    now level 23 in act 3.

    I also made a HC mule named mac_JakeMuleHC. He's got a nice little gold stash and some other good lower level items. If any of you need stuff for starting HC let me know. :)
