    I'm extremely pleased with the dev blog for legendary items. The monster affixes are my fav.

    Can't wait for the new legendaries!! For once when they drop I won't be like "ahhh, another crappy vendor piece"

    I think they need to rethink how they are changing firewalkers, monks will now be biased towards fire resistance because of the added molten damage, high dex (300) and gauranteed fire/elem resist.


    Seems fair, though - fire resistance was worth alot more pre-1.0.3 than post 1.0.4 anyway, because barbarians would go for that resistance after filling out all resistance (or just fire resistance if they couldn't get all resi), because it's the most threatening of all elite affixes - cold dmg only has frozen, lightning has, well, lightning, but fire has molten/desec/fire chains.

    Monk is my main and I wouldn't bother switching resists. As has been said fire is already a higher valued resist and trying to find all new gear is a waste of time/money. Even if I found these boots post 1.04 I would just eat the loss in resist off my current boots. Plus with the affix changes it seems very likely that the fire based affixes are going to see a pretty decent damage reduction.

    As far as this blog goes, I am very impressed. It certainly seems like they are going to get Legendary items right this time. If the class blogs are half as exciting as what we have seen so far, 1.04 is going to be a success.

    I wonder if the full list of old and new legendaries will be available at some point so that we can have a full picture about what we can expect :) What do u guys think ?

    Hopefully (and the blog doesn't seem to directly address this) they have removed most, if not all, of the random affixes on Legendaries and Sets.

    I know one of the biggest points of frustration for players was getting, say a Tal Rasha's neck with Str and Dex, but not with Int. It was also a contributing factor to why Legendaries sucked - they were so rare, yet they suffered the same randomness as any yellow. I'd love some clarification on this.
