Hardcore Raids

How about adding some REAL Battles:

You can fight until you die, no using potions or healing in the temple while you are in the Raid. When you die in the Raid you are done, you cannot continue anymore.

This would bring a lot of variables to Hardcore Raids, and bring some purpose to defense.

Not a bad idea.. Most bosses drop hp/resist gems which are USELESS in BoH. Adding a tough raid that doesn't need 60 people, but 5 truly strong players to complete or so.

The only thing I don't like is u have to leave the raid when u die. One shot only? Maybe make it cost 50% energy (MaxEn / 2 for the programming I guess) so you only really go 2-4 times at the most.

That's the definition of Hardcore.

Besides, when you die, you shouldn't be able to continue...that would make people focus on defense and give some importance to the RESIST and HEALTH gems...Energy is already too important, so hitting it will only enable the issues already present in the game.

You could make it a set energy zone. Say a cost of 20 energy to enter the raid. Still don't allow healing during the zone encounters, but if you die allow a one time return option at a cost of another 5 energy or something. That could work.

Boo! The point is that it's not based on energy, but instead based on how good you are.
+1 on original idea. I'd also like to see a survival stage in single player.

A survival stage, maybe unlocked in Fellmarsh once Trask is defeated, would be awesome!
