This can be obtained on Casual Difficulty
with your hardcore character. I attempted my first playthrough as an Embermage but ran into issues of getting overwhelmed and lost that character. Second character I ran an Engineer
. Early on Spiderbots and Flame hammer helped crowd control and did massive damage. Later in the game take advantage of Forcefield Skill from the Aegis skill tree, this prevented any health loss at the later stages of the game.Blitz Skills
Flame Hammer (starting)
Coup De Grace (if points can be spared)Construction Skills
Healing Bot (starting)
Spider Mines (level 14)
Fire and Spark (if points can be spared)Aegis Skills
Forcefield (level 7) Stat Points
Pump most points in Vitality and Strength then about 2/3 of what you place in those two pump them into Dexterity. Lastly for put points in Focus as needed so you have enough to cast you skills
Hope this helps those having issues. Always take it slow and sweep and clear areas as you move through the areas/dungeons.
Note: Other solution provided did not work for me when my hardcore character died.
Also after posting this i did some research and there is a more in-depth guide for solo hardcore via steam community guides. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=23785...
