World First Diablo III Hardcore Inferno Completion

By
Posted on June 20, 2012 AT 06:54am

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.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
