In World of Warcraft Classic Hardcore, caution is paramount as each character possesses only a single life. A slight misstep could condemn a hero to an irreversible fate of permanent deletion. This grim reality recently befell a level 49 Shaman. No matter how cautious he was, eventually, he had met his demise while reloading his own weapon.
Nastrin shared his unfortunate event on the WoW Classic subreddit. He navigated the perilous journey meticulously, exercising caution at every turn. However, fate had other plans. An unexpected and fatal turn of events unfolded while he reloaded his Goblin Mortar.
This engineering device typically accommodates six shots. Upon firing them all, the user must proceed to reload it. Unlike conventional items with explicit warning signs, the Goblin Mortar fails to mention the danger of replenishing it. Apparently, the process of charging the mortar is perilous and can end in a catastrophic failure. Often, it results in an explosion for the character performing the reload. And so, it had caught Nastrin off guard.
This unforeseen fatality left Nastrin grappling. The bitter irony was hard to ignore. His carefully calculated and cautious approach to the game had ultimately led to an inglorious demise.

He’s not the only one, however. Walldewd the Hunter lost their character because of Feigning Death. Even the World First level 60 Mage can’t escape from dying twice. And let’s not forget that this relentless mode saw 90,000 deaths in just over 24 hours after its launch.
But that is the charm of WoW Classic Hardcore. Its unpredictable nature keeps the game full of thrills and surprises, as none can predict what lies ahead.
