    Default 11/28/18 | Preview | HARDCORE MODE

    It's time y'all. Tomorrow we release Hard Core Mode.

    HOW DO I PLAY!?

    1) Max out a character with regular play.

    2) Head to Festerfang Outpost and speak to Nalyx. He'll give you a quest.

    More Info

    This is from Cinco's original post:

    Overview
    - Hardcore Mode is a challenging way to enjoy Arcane Legends with a new (special) character!
    - To experience Hardcore Mode you must first complete a quest from 'Nalyx' in Festerfang Outpost. He's not there yet but will be soon. Once you complete his quest you will be able to create new 'Hardcore Mode' characters on your account.
    - Hardcore Mode characters start the game at Level 1 and advance through the classic Arcane Legends campaigns, quests and content.
    - Hardcore characters cannot trade or stash items and if they die they cannot resurrect! For enduring these hardships, Hardcore Mode characters collect unique achievements, titles and banners to show their prowess.
    - Hardcore characters are allowed to hang out in the same social spaces as 'normal' characters but they are only allowed to go on PVE adventures with other Hardcore characters. This means that the game will only put Hardcore characters into instances with other Hardcore characters. Likewise, 'normal' characters are put in normal instances with other 'normal' characters ;-)
    - Hardcore characters are allowed to PvP against other Hardcore characters. Normal and Hardcore characters are not allowed to play together in standard PvP maps. There are two exceptions to this: Duels and Guild Battlegrounds. Hardcore characters can elect to 'duel' or enter a 'Guild Battleground.'

    Rewards
    - Reach Level 2 for the title: <<Mortal>>
    - Reach Level 25 for <<The One and Only>> title and the Level 25 Hardcore Banner.
    - Reach Level 50 for the gold <<Living Legend>> title and the Level 50 Hardcore Banner.
    - An additional title and an amazing new banner will be reserved for Level 75.

    Important details:

    DEATH & RESTORATION
    - The cornerstone of 'Hardcore Mode' is the finality of character death. Hardcore characters cannot resurrect when they die. If a Hardcore character falls in battle s/he is considered 'permanently dead,' and is removed from the Hardcore Mode leaderboard.
    - Players have the option to use Platinum to restore a dead Hardcore mode character to Level 1 with all of the inventory items that the character had when they died. This is the only way to recover a dead Hardcore character.
    - Restored Hardcore characters start at Level 1 no matter how far they got in the game before they died!
    - Dead Hardcore characters remain in your character list until they are deleted or restored.
    - Death in PvE and death in PvP have the same consequences for Hardcore characters.

    TRADE & STASH
    - Hardcore characters are economically isolated from their Arlorian brethren. They cannot use the huge advantages that come from trading equipment with other adventurers. They cannot spend their gold for powerful items at Auction. They cannot move items from other characters on the same account via the Stash.
    - The Hardcore character's equipment is the product of strict individual effort! Relying upon looted items makes the Hardcore character experience very challenging - especially at higher levels.


    On CONVERTING CHARACTERS
    - Existing characters are considered 'Normal Mode' characters. These characters cannot be converted into 'Hardcore Mode.' Likewise, you cannot convert a 'Hardcore Mode' character into a normal one.
    - The purpose of hardcore mode is to create a risky, exciting new context for advancing from Levels 1 to 71 (and beyond) and 'conversion' back and forth would defeat this.

    On GEAR LOSS
    - All of the items in your Hardcore character's inventory are lost when that character dies. This includes everything: vanity items, equipment items, crafting components, chests.
    - Since Hardcore characters do not have access to trade, stash or Auction, the strategic management of inventory is more important than in the 'normal' character context.
    - If you choose to restore a dead Hardcore Mode character, all of that character's items will also be restored. Upon restoration your character will be back at Level 1 so higher-level items will not be accessible until you meet the necessary requirements.

    On ACHIEVEMENTS
    - After reviewing feedback we have decided to separate the 'Hardcore' mode character achievements into their own category. These will be visible only to Hardcore characters and will not affect normal players' advancement.

    On LEADERBOARDS
    - Hardcore characters are removed from the Hardcore Leaderboard when they die.
    - All relevant advancement counters (kills, AP's) are reset on death.

    On PETS
    - When a dead Hardcore character is restored, their Pets are brought back along with all of their equipment.
    - Pet levels are all reset to 1. Purpose of this is to ensure that early game balance is not trivialized by high-level companions.

    We're looking forward to your feedback as the system matures, have fun out there!

    So people will dummy farm PvP kills again? Since if you risk entering PvP alone, you're just asking for your hardcore char to die.

    Not to mention this highly promotes people to gang each other, instead of doing fair fights

    Finally!

    I just have one concern with this.....will hardcore characters be able to use the platnuim store? if so its gonna be a cake walk for plat users, they can buy kits that give legendary gear for your character and even just strait up buy xp, You guys said said the objective of this was "eat what you kill" but if plat store purchases are allowed that simply won't be the case. This is coming from someone who would use plat to boost with gear and exlixirs to make it way easier but do I think it should be allowed? no.... but not sure if it is or not, please let me know

    So you use ur lvl 71 normal player to create a hardcore does that mean you lose your lvl 71 toon? If so this ain't worth playing.

    No, you don't, you just need a level 66 plus charater to do the quest, after you do the quest the next time you create a new character it will give you the option to make a hardcore one

    Whether or not the allow use of the plat store will define this mode, espeacially since you can't use the gold to get stuff that others can get with plat, its gonna be all down to how much plat you have, will this be hardcoremode? or platcore mode?

    This is a great update, kind of exciting, but I also have a few suggestions.

    We know that right now the Top Players Leaderboard is for people who have a lot of time to grind, and those who played long enough to afford all the pets and mythic sets, and maybe some PvP dummy farmers here and there. And let's be honest, in game skill is not really required to be there. And I think that's where it should change.

    I think that the Top Players, aside for being hardcore grinders and have spent a lot of time (or not time) to be in the Leaderboard, they should also possess some in game skills, like fighting. And this is probably the best opportunity to bring all those three together.

    So, my suggestion is to send the Achievement Titles and Banners to our main characters, so we can 1) show off our skills, 2) get APs for the Top Player LB.

    This way, in our main characters, with the titles and banners we can show that we got the moves, but not the time to grind, or buy pets (therefore not in Leaderboard). But, if we get in the Top Player Leaderboard, we show that we dedicated time to grinding and farming, but we are also skilled as AL players, and indeed worthy of being in Top Players LB.

    The only way you can make me play HARDCORE MODE is if you make HARDCORE MODE OFFLINE. Imagine yourself almost reach the top then suddenly ping go up rip, wasted,
    the end, bye bye lol. We only have ONE life ( for us non plat users ) and PING can easily take it any time.

    This sounds like a blast! Come on every one, it's a game!! Play have fun and laugh. Hardcore mode is good for us all, who remembers the fear certain maps presented to us? That joyous dread of being on the edge of sanity! I think this is going to bring back the importance of parties working together and being balanced. I for one look forward to see just how far I can go without dying!
    Happy hunting all,
