The race to fully complete Diablo 3 is finally over. A Barbarian and Wizard duo managed to kill the Lord of Terror on Hardcore Inferno mode late last night.
D3 features four difficulty levels: Normal, Nightmare, Hell and Inferno. Players must finish the campaign in a given difficulty level before advancing to the next difficulty. In "Hardcore" mode, your character dies permanently and cannot be replayed if they fall just once in battle. A Hardcore Inferno clear sounds like a complete pain in the ass to me but there's always someone on the Internet willing to complete a ludicrious challenge.
There was initially some dispute over whether or not the two players, Kripparrian and Krippi, were actually the first in the world to accomplish this feat. However, Blizzard community manager Bashiok eventually cleared up the matter.
"My apologies Kripp and Krippi, looks like you were 1st HC Inferno clear. (my spreadsheet deciphering isn't what it used to be) Congrats!" tweeted Bashiok.
Videos of the Diablo kill, from each player's point of view, are below.
