Many thought it impossible, but finally someone has completed Diablo III on the hardest difficulty using a Hardcore character.

Inferno is the hardest difficulty in the game, which was cleared just a week after the game launched. However, the Hardcore version, in which characters can permanently die, has proved insurmountable until now. Basically, in Hardcore mode if your character dies once then it’s game over, you lose everything.

Patch 1.03 for the game reduces the difficulty of Inferno mode, but Kripparrian, from Toronto, Canada, wanted to complete this mode before the patch. Yesterday, on June 19, he achieved this goal with his Hardcore Barbarian, clinching the world first title.

Blizzard community manager Bashiok officially confirmed the achievement, “My apologies Kripp and Krippi, looks like you were 1st HC Inferno clear,” he tweeted. “(my spreadsheet deciphering isn’t what it used to be) Congrats!”

Kripparrian also released the video below showing the Hardcore Diablo kill along with an explanation of what he went though.
