bring back W!!

  • #1
    Does anyone else agree that blizzard should bring back the switch weapon feature? What if you have to utilize a space in your inventory for a weapon with life steal on it to battle reflect damage guys? This would also help use weapons that aren't perfect yet still bangin, just because it doesn't have life steal on it, since you can switch it to a weapon with life steal / LoH on it for fights which require it

    Absolutely yes. Would be more useful in D3 than it was in D2 actually, even without the skill change. And it's not just about reflect damage, I would like to switch to high APS/APoC weapon when my Archon is on cooldown...

    I would love to see that feature back. Loved it in D2 and would make great use of it in D3.

    Can someone suggest this on official forums? I'm too lazy to do that... and dunno where.

    The "W" topic have already been brought up on the official forums and Blizzard did make a note and patched something to fix it. This was a long time ago. The weaponswap will not return. It goes against what the Diablo 3 team were striving for.

    Theres already topics about this on the official and on these forums, but aside that I would love this feature. I am just waiting for PvP at this point.

    Even if they eventually implemented the weapon-switch feature, it would probably be like "Your Nephalem Valor resets when using this feature" and then we wouldn't use it anyway.

    I searched for said blue posts and it seems like the "no to weapon swap" blue posts were all about the magic find gear discussion. Maybe there's a way out... like, -50% magic find for 60 seconds if you switch to that other weapon (debuff disappears if you switch back) or so. Would make Sunkeeper/Grand Vizier almost useless, but for reflect damage I would take that debuff without hesitation.

    That is THE SOLUTION. Now, someone go and officially propose it!!

    I suggested it numerous times in many of the "I HATE REFLECT DAMAGE" threads. I simply proposed a weapon switch would allow people to identify RD packs, switch to a shield and more appropriate weapon choice to mitigate this oft times troublesome affix.

    You got the right idea but that could be interpreted as punitive to the player for wanting to switch, even if not for MF gain. A better solution would be to disable MF gain on a players weapon switch #2 slot.

    i dont think W feature will be needed, reflect damage packs are changing. other then that mf swapping is kinda pointless. only other reason is to swap a shield on when expecting more damage? but we all farm the lowest mp to max our output.
    if they need to spend more then a day creating this, i rather see them spend that time on something that we need. more Antibot features? make botter accounts Flagged stoping all forms of moving items/gold(AH, Dropping items, Trading, Everything) with no warning or message, allowing them to farm for weeks/months to realize it was all for not.
