Surviving Path of Exile Forums

The Fun and Appeal of Playing in Path of Exile Hardcore Leagues

When you first mention hardcore mode to anyone familiar with action role-playing games, most of them would be intimidated by its mere mention. The fact that you can only die once has its appeal for a lot of players, but most understandably have an aversion from such a notion.

Improving Trading in Path of Exile
