First off the item doesn't let you freely change from HCIM to regular IM account and back. Once you are IM there's no way to go back to HCIM. So bringing up normal player becoming a HCIM is a silly argument.

Second when you die your HCIM highscores and runescore is locked in place. You can see this easily when viewing the HCIM highscores as the player will have their name crossed out if they are dead.

Third a lot of people play HCIM to see how far they can go without dying. Death in this game is fairly common so it takes a lot of preparation and knowledge to make sure you can handle the task you are up against (quest, new area, boss, the wild). It adds a level of excitement and nervousness that regular IM can not supply. Jagex gratefully allowed an item for those that wish to continue playing their HCIM as IM accounts should they die. This item is apparently not working occuring to the op. Best advice would be to report it as a bug in game.

As far as for me I play HCIM for the challenge it brings. I don't own a regular IM account nor will I ever. I am not likely to ever buy the jar as I enjoy the excitement of the game mode.

Imagine being maxed and having your ISP yeet you at rax and losing your account forever.


That should be the risk you take signing up as a HCIM

Please please tell me that if a HCIM dies with a jar of life that they loose all their possessions and all their stats are retuned to level one right? If not, then HCIM is a laughable joke. LOL!

I thought this threads purpose was to tell the Jmods to fix the Jar of light so it functions again. Not to ask for it to be removed. If you want it removed go post a thread suggesting it be removed in Existing game content.

That's like saying you should never drive because there is a risk that someone might crash into you, in the event of which you should not be given medical aid and be left to die, even if you have done 30k hours driving and are the bestest driver in the world.

Please knock it off, this attitude is incredibly toxic. Please keep it to yourself

This is a serious bug and needs to be addressed ASAP

The point of "Hardcore" though is to only have 1 life no matter what and then the account is deleted.

I get it when it's said
You DO know a lot of people play HCIM Mode BECAUSE they have the option to go to a normal Ironman once they die, right?
and
Having 1 life =/= locked account, IMO.
but the whole premise of "Hardcore" is 1 life then account deletion.

I'm gonna have to agree with Evsmech on this one (except the non-to-iron example, went a little off on that example there) if you don't want your account to be deleted on death then you shouldn't have created a Hardcore Ironman; just as any other game with a true "Hardcore" mode of playing the entire account is just deleted upon death.

The ability to "come back" as even a regular Ironman goes against what Hardcore stands for, and IMO shouldn't even be allowed.
