    That pretty much sums up my first poorjoys as well. Zerg got it from one of his first Zana missions, we both went in (I was running an arc build, he was an under geared ranger). We made it through a small part of a room, then got wrecked. It was miserable.
    :(

    But, I had a poorjoys drop from Shock and Horror yesterday, and it had rolled 12 rare belts, so I thought "let's give it a try". 2 hits from anything would have killed me, but placing two totem at the start of a room, running back, and kiting for days kept me from taking the deadly second hit.

    I actually did not notice I was killing the boss until the room was cleared and I saw all the belts.

    Today was a good day. Participated in two races, one of them emberwake, where I died 7 minutes before it finished, but after that in the Descent I got 5 whole points. 4 for my char level and one for killing Rukuku.

    My goal is to reach 10 points. That would break m previous record of a lifetime of 9 points.

    EDIT: 8 points, my goal is on the horizon. Like syed.

    Cruel Malachai down. Still can't account about all this shit he does, but this was easer than in normal.

    They nerfed them both again.

    Normal and Cruel Act 4 are pretty easy now. :p

    Is anyone else experiencing crippling lag spike issues with this game lately? It's become virtually unplayable for me.

    Only once, and it was right before a server crash. Other than that, no excuse for cruel Malachi killing my first hardcore character ever. :facepalm

    It honestly just started yesterday morning for me. I'm not even sure what the issue is, but I can't play the game for more than a few seconds without getting a latency flatline and it's choppy as all hell even when it's not doing that. Looking around PoE's support forum seems to indicate that many other users are having the same issues, but thus far the developers aren't really even responding to questions on it.

    You guys need to be on more, I want some mapping partners! With the new patch making it easier to get higher maps we could get some awesome runs going.

    Been a bit busy, moving into an apartment. Also picked up GW2, and been playing that a bit more. I'll be on more often now, though, although when classes start up next week that may change.

    There has also been this fiasco, which is making me unsure how much I want to play this league. Looks like actually buying items will be impossible for super-poor me now.

    Picked this back up after some months away. Rebuilding my Summoner Witch now. Good news: Stygian Revenant spectres make clearing out mobs so, so much faster. Bad news: Cruel Malachai still raped me about two dozen times before I got past him. Thankfully I'd just leveled before going into the battle, so the deaths didn't cost me much of anything.

    This is why I do not and never will play HC.

    I still haven't picked it back up since just after my last HC death...

    Just ripped as lvl 87 SRS Scion to fucking obelisks in Hardcore Talisman. Survivability at t7+ maps is a bit questionable. But it was my highest character!

    Probably. I'd stepped away from the game for awhile. Didn't realize that Ascendancy was so close to release.

    Yes, new Hardcore league for me. Will be trying TS or LA Ranger, but don't know which class to pick yet.

    Wow, I didn't realize it was so soon either. I'm sure I'll give it a go, but I really need to read up on it and see what's new and what's changing.

    Same. That was a hard one to swallow, especially seeing it was due to server lag. This was my first serious try at HC in an ARPG, and I wasn't happy about it. Not sure I'll dip into HC again.

    I'll probably be playing on the standard challenge league due to occasionally unstable internet. For class the only idea I have so far is playing with Ballista, played it during the current league and it was pretty awesome and the new stuff being added only seems to buff it.

    Can anyone confirm whether or not these new ascendancy trials will kill hardcore players? I assume that they will, and that might mean I really should play standard to try to learn the new content first.

    Unfortunately standard bores the shit out of me. So I might just have to suffer through repeated deaths while learning content.
