LOL, yeah that sucker could be brutal.

I know that feeling, that's happened to me a few times as well. He's not one that you can really mess around with.

Oh man, I think I might have the ultimate hardcore mode death or at least the most prolonged one...

I was playing a druid and had pretty crazy health. I think I was about level 70. I was on hell difficult in hell (the lava area right before Diablo's chamber). I had about 20 rejuvenation pots but a pretty crappy melee weapon, so my damage was terrible - just had no luck replacing it. I stumbled into a giant mass of enemies that were mostly those big blunderbore guys. I started fighting and they began closing in around me, so, at the last moment, while there was still a narrow path of escape, I went to back out to avoid being trapped. There was a fucking skull or some other tiny object on the ground that somehow blocked pathing even though it was barely visible. My escape was cut off and they totally closed in around me. I tried opening portals but they were all just out of reach... so then I started hacking away and drinking potions in what was probably the slowest hardcore mode death ever. Because my weapon sucked and they were such high-hp enemies, it was just taking forever to kill them. I had my inventory open that started out almost entirely full of rejuvs and just kept chugging. It seriously took about 15mins for me to finally run out of potions and I was down to only about 1 layer of enemy before I could cut through and escape but, alas, I just couldn't kill them fast enough and finally died.

That's crazy, I wish I could come up with a death of mine but I've never actually tried hardcore before xD, I'm guessing that I'm missing a whole bunch of fun from not playing hardcore.

That's also why the barbarian was so easy at hardcore. The jump/blink is an instant life saver.

Actually in GD, a spell that make the player teleport would be nice, but only if short ranged or if it teleports at random places.
In TQ, the shield charge is one of the funniest skill.

Sounds like a worthy death for a character. :P

I've never played the Diablo series :O ..and am curious about hardcore mode. Aside from the obvious permanent death, what else does hardcore mode include?

Is it just like another difficulty tier except with extra-super-crazy-sweet loot!??

If someone can give me a brief insight it'd be very much appreciated
