Just a few questions 1. Is there any benefit to hardcore mode..? 2.Is there any way to retrieve and carry on with a permanently dead char (Cheating or bypassing the death)? 3.Is it possible to make heirlooms out of heirlooms?
I want to know whether I can cheat death, as I selected hardcore mode without consulting guides and other things to see if it had any advantage, which I honestly expected. Needless to say, I got insta-killed walking into the ember colossus' laser, I do not wish to re-grind hours of 'work' because of some unforeseeable insta-kill.
Something which might be possible - is it possible to hex edit to change the 'dead' status to like.. not?
Thats giving me some hope, but I honestly dont deal with codes and stuff myself, any possible guidance if it is possible to change this or recover my dead char? Infact - any save editors out yet that could do this, tried searching myself, best I could find was a gibberish and un-translatable chinese save editor, don't know if it even has what I'm looking for. Thanks if anyone could help.
If you can't handle instant deaths, either stop playing hardcore or play through softcore first, in order to get a better idea of what to expect. I personally find it exciting to not know what to expect, though I admit that it's annoying to have to replay the same areas over and over again, especially on VH.
Deaths due to stupid things like laggy stair traps (if you have a slow computer) or pop-ups and AV software are a different story. I'd like to see a mod that automatically pauses the game when you travel to a new area, or, if it's even possible, one that pauses the game if Torchlight is minimized.
