    Wink How did you die?

    I'm loving the Hardcore server so far. Managed to hit level 3 and so far haven't died.

    But all those world announcements make me curious.

    So, if you are one of the unfortunates and feel like sharing - HOW DID YOU DIE? And what quest were you in when it happened?

    Did you forget feather fall? Did you think the water was deeper? Did you brave Reaper 10?

    I'm sure I'm not the only one who would love to know

    [And I will post my death which is inevitable!]

    Not dead yet, but I've come danger close a couple of times when Kobold Shamans and their lightning bolts of doom double-strike me just about the time my resist pot runs out. I'm fairly sure that those lightning bolts have accounted for more than a few.

    Great idea for a thread!

    I haven't died yet, but am only about half way through 3. I - almost - wiped in Haverdasher Elite last night when I pulled too much aggro from the scorpion room w/the named.

    #1 - Tangleroot part 2 end room with the final prisoner. Champion Hobgoblin Slayer with Demon Soul didn't care about my Webs and butchered my level 4 baby sorc.

    #2 - Holding level 8 on my Arti, cleaning up Sharn Syndicate favor, first trap room in Dirty Laundry on R1, bam, double spike hit with failed saves -> dead.
    On live, I would have jump + Featherfalled over to the box and disarmed it without thinking. On HC... I couldn't have made the jump, probably much less have hit the gear to disarm it. It's crazy (and super fun!)

    Rumors--

    Level 10 Sorcerer just died on elite in the Pit.


    Healer type died at level 6 last night, when a trapper blew up a box that exploded and killed multiple party members.

    I've been trapping and it's nerve wracking. Tons of fun, every time, don't roll a one.

    Level 4 so far, some close, but not too close, calls so far.

    Kobold shaman lightning bolts are dangerous w/o ship (cargo) resists.

    Ordinary humans have inhibitions that serve as a buffer against what we know is bad behavior.
    However, some people, by blaming others for their own bad behavior, develop a thought pattern that allows them to override self-control in order to achieve a selfish end.

    I haven't died yet. But man, Bloodknuckle hits harder than I remembered. It was a near thing, and I won't be so overconfident again soon.

    Guild chat is claiming traps as the #1 killer.

    Just one rank from L5 I got hit by two simultaneous lightning traps in Recover the Lost Tome.

    (Combat): You attempt to save versus trap:electric. You roll a 5 (+3): save failure!
    (Combat): You suffer 82 points of damage from Trap:Electric.
    (Combat): You attempt to save versus trap:electric. You roll a 9 (+3): save failure!
    (Combat): You suffer 56 points of damage from Trap:Electric.

    I was a L4 Horc barbarian with 103 HP and both Die Hard and Die Harder enhancements.

    I am actually considering investing in Spot on my cleric for just this reason.

    In my case I know the trap is there, you just have to try and dash/power through it. I think I darted when I should have dashed, or maybe I leapt when I should have rolled. lol

    I *really* wish they'd added this to the announcements. "SuchandSo walked into a trap and died Level 2" or "BossyGnoll drowned at Level 3" or "Earthbound forgot she didn't have Feather Fall and died, Level 2" or "HighFlier jumped off the guild airship and died, Level 10."

    I haven't died yet, but my oldest son/guildmate died to a trap, skipped Korthos on the second round to come play with us, and was too low level when the Kobold Shaman decided to put a lightning bolt right in his face.

    We're having sooo much fun.

    First, you got my $$$

    I haven't died yet but I have been playing cautious. Some people are definitely playing "loose." Running Korthos a party member was at 0/102 because they forgot to click their feather fall item. Not a death but it was a wake up call for me.

    Am not dead, yet... But that Ogre at the end of Kobolds New Ringleader hits very, very hard. Nearly killed little River Tam.
