Full Hardcore Dungeon Groups are authorized but only ONE run of each Dungeon per character.
You are supposed to meet and group up at the Meeting Stone of the very dungeon you want to run.
Your character level must be within the Meeting Stone requirements of the dungeon. You are allowed to exceed the maximum level of the dungeon, if you level up inside of the dungeon.
If you have a Warlock in your party, you are allowed to summon players of your dungeon group.
Warlocks can’t resurrect via SS, Shamans can’t resurrect via Ankh, Paladins can’t Bubble Hearth, No Light of Elune + Hearthstone.
At 60, you earn your IMMORTALITY and become a full fledged character with insane bragging rights!
In order to get a verified 60 run and a place in the Hall of Legends, you need to record or stream your journey and submit a playlist of your run on the verification page. Our mods will review your run and verify it afterwards (this usually takes one or two weeks).
You can enjoy the Hardcore journey and be a part of the community without recording your sessions of course, you just can’t be verified in the end.
You must choose a combo that spawns in the same starting location (unless you can find a way to travel to other starting zone at level 1).
You must not leave the same zone as each other (unless you are a Druid going to Moonglade to complete essential class quests).
If one of you dies, the other must fall on the sword and the run is over.
You can trade any solo self found items or crafted items to each other including gold.
Multiboxing goes against the spirit of the Hardcore Challenge and is not allowed.
No, stash and bank alts are not allowed within the Hardcore Challenge.
