Even though Blizz buffed the damage of most builds, the damage you can take at higher GR's is the same.
I found out the hard way that you can get one shot killed at those high level rifts. I suspect that we will
see added defensive changes in a lot of the builds. Having fun again!

Found it.  Impressive.  You are almost completely HC.

That is impressive.

I'll have to dig up your profile.

Demon Hunter Impale build is pretty tanky. You move from pack to pack and leave/avoid trash.

There are a couple of Monk builds as well that I enjoyed playing HC, particularly the wave of light. It's a screen killer and has decent toughness.

I had a HC Wizard a long time ago and really enjoyed playing it but that was before several major changes to the sets. I've tried DMO and it is tanky but finicky.

Another good option is to see what HC builds are pulling on the Leaderboards, particularly the GR level needed to get on the leaderboard since most of those folks won't have 4,000+ paragon.

One place where I have real trouble in HC is if I go for Kanai's cube too soon. There are so may little poison throwing bugs that they often drive me completely off the floor.

Lastly, if in doubt, run away.

Evil urns are so pretty.

I was wondering about the Gifts.  Is there one that is more suitable for HC?  I am leaning towards doing a Wiz.  As I have never gotten one to 70 before.

I ran a HC wizard last season and was able to hit the leaderboards early and often. I think I safely hit a 73 near the end without really focusing on pushing. Tal Rasha is very tanky once you have the jewelry, but apparently Vyr's is the starter set.

WD is also a very safe choice, due to all the minions that act as cannon fodder for you. IK for barbs is also a safe bet, since you get permanent immortals to keep you company.

Anybody have any HC advice for this patch?

If you are starting at level 1, make sure you know when your near death passive unlocks, and use it as soon as it is available. Make sure you roll vit on some items where you would normally go for CHC/CHD/AS, etc. Don't do it everywhere, of course, but at least take a cursory glance at vit and life so you have some toughness. If you aren't playing as in Int character, go with diamonds in your chest and pants as needed.

And never ever ever touch the evil urns!  :P
