    I’m assuming they’ll put it in the same weekend as the new raid goes live because that’s pretty much what they did with the last hardcore season.

    There are a lot of factors to balance - all the feedback (pro and con) for "moar!" or "less!" HCL, same w/ possible changes to HCL format and any coding involved there, timing conflicts with other events over a 90 day period, and so on.

    Each player has their opinions (and there are other threads for those), so no need to rehash here - we'll know when they know.

    My opinion (that is all it is) is one life, but you get 30 seconds
    to be rez'd by any REAL player in your party or maybe 1 minute.

    no cakes
    NPC Hirelings should only have a small chance of success (or none)

    and limit the number of times a party member can rez you to twice.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    A couple of disclaimers - no idea if this would be worth the effort to program in.
    or even possible.

    and it looks like what we already had but it is very different, you don't get a freebee rez,
    a party member would can use that spell/SLA has to be available or someone
    with a ton of UMD and a rez scroll.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    But if that is not possible - and it might not be,
    a more simplified version.

    You can be rez's twice - But you have to do it.
    Rez shrine
    cake
    NPC healer
    Party member with scroll
    -whatever-
    but the game will not do it for you

    doesn't matter what level you are either
    3rd death counts - end of story

    Use rez cake and monster kills you again while standing there?
    that is 2 deaths now.

    Release out of the dungeon while dead? - >>>> THREE DEATHS AUTOMATICALLY<<<<
    (the game will NOT save you)

    Do a raid that is required to kill you? - 1 death

    Special note - you die and release? your done.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    That is just my personal musings.
    By now most of the Developers has me on ignore :-P
    so the pompously announced forum exit lasted not even a week? A man of his word

    More D&D'ish would be like this, dead no more than 1 day per caster level and resurrection/true resurrection increase that time, so more like the live servers is what your wanting ?

    You restore life to a deceased creature. You can raise a creature that has been dead for no longer than one day per caster level. In addition, the subject’s soul must be free and willing to return. If the subject’s soul is not willing to return, the spell does not work; therefore, a subject that wants to return receives no saving throw.

    I thought the Free Lives in HCL was compensation for all the Lag Deaths.

    as said, the General forum is pretty toxic but am more than
    happy to chat in the preverbal broom closet down here with other
    HCL players.

    Not like there is anything worth doing until the next HCL starts.
    Posting in the correct forum is the first step to a successful thread.

    Default Do you know what the special rewards look like before the Hardcore season is over?

    Just wanted to know if you can preview the special rewards you get by reaching mile stones on Hardcore.
    Thanks in advance!
    Sincerely, Zorrbeania

    My flaky pseudo psychic "abilities" are saying May. That can't be right... (drinks more future-sight juice)

    I was very happy to hear the announcement on the DDOstream that the 4th HCL is being scheduled to start in the very near future

    I like the two events per year format that Severlin talked about on Wednesday. It does sound like a good balance moving forward.

    Thankyou!
