    Btw, we will have a guild with gear tabs to help out. I can invite to help people group up. We will have a running post where people can update there status. If you die, try to post on that thread so we can keep a running tally of deaths in this event.

    I would love to, it sounds like fun ... but RO and TG keep me busy :)


    Just to clarify for the members though ... 'Hardcore' in this game/contest refers to the fact that death is permanent and not necessarily the playstyle. From what I understand, if you die, you make another character and start over and hope everyone in front of you dies too

    Path of Exile is one of those games that can be very overwhelming to start. I always tell people to not get attached to there first character, it will die. But the game is very gear based. And your personal stash is shared between all of your characters. So your level 15 gear, store into your stash so your next playthrough is that much easier.

    Legitamentally I am going to guess that most of the characters that win will only be about 2 weeks old.

    Just so everyone knows, if Little Oni beats Over in this ladder Little Oni will be promoted to just normal Oni, and Over will be demoted to lil overzealous.

    So much is at stake...

    Ok so, just one thing....since you can share stuff in your stash, people who have played before will have a serious advantage, assuming they have created and played a hard-core character before. I think LoanWolf should start with a disadvantage. Like, his character has to be naked or something

    Not true. The only advantage we have is knowing what to save for future characters. In path of exile they have seasons so each new season every character on the ladder gets reset. This is just a convenient way for you to save currency and gear for future characters or in the case of a guild stash, help other people.

    So Major, all seasons start fresh. There exists 4 servers in path of exile. Standard, Harcore, Season Standard and Season Hardcore. The season starting Dec 2nd is called "Breach." When your character dies it Season Hardcore, it will go to Season Standard. All characters that were in Season Standard and Season hardcore get transferred to Standard and Hardcore Respectfully. The stashes are not carried over, only what is on your characters back. On Dec 2nd, all guild stashes, stashes, currencies, all of that is fresh on the new server. It is a complete fresh economy. I have put some money into a guild that has a bunch of tabs though, and any of my hand me down pieces I always put in there in case anyone can use.

    Ahh, ok, I get it now. Maybe we should all play naked characters? That would be even more fun, or maybe just really frustrating

    I love your enthusiasm of wanting to make the game harder. I promise you that your softcore mentality is not needed for this seasons race. By the end of the first week you will be begging for some armor with hp/resists

    Through your gear is also how you equip skills, via gems you find.
    It's hard to explain without seeing it, but yeah you literally equip skills through gems.
    So it'd be really limiting on building any sort of class too - if we all went nakey.
    I think it sounds fun in theory, but in actual practice we'd get bored pretty fast
    bc our characters wouldn't be able to do anything and we'd all be dying before we hit lvl 10 lol
