What happens when you die ? Is there any sort of penalty ? I think that I didn't lost any XP or items after my last death. Mobs did not respawn, the map I discovered remained discovered...
Experience loss depends on the difficulty you're currently playing in. Note you cannot lose levels by losing experience through death.
- Normal Difficulty: 0%
- Cruel Difficulty: 5%
- Merciless Difficulty: 10%
The character is removed from the hardcore league (temporary or permanent). The character and all the items they are carrying are transferred to the permanent Standard league.
Items are dropped upon death, making them loot-able for anyone. You also lose experience at the same rate as Standard leagues.
