With the long-awaited release of Diablo 4, numerous players are venturing into the realm of Sanctuary for the first time, while others have been immersed in the game since its early access launch a few days ago. Among these early players, some have already accomplished the impressive feat of reaching the level cap of 100 in softcore mode, while the intense competition to achieve the same milestone in Hardcore mode remains.
Now, we can confirm that the first player has successfully reached level 100 in Hardcore mode in Diablo 4. If this achievement intrigues you, continue reading to discover all the essential details about the individual who accomplished this feat, as well as the approach they employed to attain it.
Who is The World First Hardcore Diablo 4 Level 100?
The first level 100 Hardcore character in Diablo 4 has achieved the game's maximum level, and it is cArn_, a popular Path of Exile streamer playing as the powerful Barbarian class (Similar to the player who reached the level cap in softcore who also used the Barbarian). carn_, managed to establish a significant lead over other competitors, including many other well-known Diablo streamers.
The accomplishment was proudly announced by cArn_ on Twitter, sharing a Twitch clip of the exciting finale. He expressed gratitude to his team for their support, and even Adam Fletcher, the Global Diablo community development director, responded to the tweet, seemingly confirming and acknowledging cArn_'s victory.
For those that don't know, cArn_'s team consists of Nugiyen, Zizaran, and Steelmage, who currently hold the second, third, and fourth positions respectively on the Hardcore leaderboard, as reported by DiabloBuilds. Immediately after cArn_'s achievement, the team resumed their dedicated grinding efforts, likely to have the entire squad dominating the leaderboard (definitely a lucrative prospect).
On the other side of the coin, this win by cArn_ has caused an upset in the highly competitive race to reach level 100 first in Diablo 4. Many fans had expected acclaimed streamer Wudijo to win, given his substantial lead over the competition when they were around level 50. However, Wudijo currently sits in sixth place, but we doubt this news will stop their grind to get to level 100 soon.
Although, for Wujido and many other competitive Diablo 4 players, it may not be as easy as it was for cArn_. Wudijo competes as a solo Hardcore player, and so do many other Diablo 4 gamers, whereas cArn_ and his team were able to farm more efficiently by playing together. This means the race for the top spot in the solo category is still ongoing, and Wudijo remains a strong contender, but other solo players out there are also grinding their way to the top.
cArn_ had previously gained recognition for winning in Dota and Starcraft 2, and more recently, he has excelled in several Path of Exile races. So it comes as no surprise that his skills in action-RPG games primed him to dominate his way through the release of Diablo 4.
So there you have it, everything you need to know about cArn_, the first player to reach the level 100 cap in Diablo 4's Hardcore mode. We wish all players the best of luck as they grind to reach the cap as well, and hopefully, these dedicated gamers will be able to get some well-deserved rest soon.
