1/25/2019 - Hardcore Season 1 (1/27/2019 - 5/1/2019)

-Hardcore Season 1 will start on 1/27 and will allow you to create a new Hardcore character to progress through a much harder time that existed on this server. Here are some features:

-You will have to hail an NPC in the Avatar lobby and request a Hardcore player name.
-After your new character is made you will be teleported to the Hardcore Hub.
-Hardcore characters will be restricted to the Hardcore Hub and whatever progression instances they can access.
-Hardcore players start at level 70 with 350 AA. Tier 3 gear can be purchased (at a discounted rate) from Max, who will be in the hub.
-Progression starts at Upper & Lower Guk (you do not have to do anything prior for your Hardcore character).
-Progression for Season 1 will go from the Guks to Sleeper.
-Right now the season is slated to last until May 1st (4 Months).
-You will earn Hardcore Points based on various achievements.
-Drop rates have been reduced to their original "old-school" percentage, including quest drops.
-Mobs will be far harder at their original 'old-school" damage & hitpoints.
-All gear (except certain quest items) will be tradable and there is now a Hardcore Bazaar.
-Leaderboards will track a ton of metrics.
-Reroll rates on Weasel have been reverted to their original, much harsher chances.
-Epics will be sold on Max.
-You will lose Hardcore Points on death.
-Various rewards will be given based upon how far you progress and what you achieve.
-You may transfer your character outside of Hardcore at the end of the season.

If you are looking for a challenging grind, I'm bringing it back. This is purely optional and something I think will be fun for folks, but should in no way be considered required and will not affect the balance of the rest of the server.
