Patch 1.0.3 Unofficial Changes

    Why...

    Why do I continually see negative updates for this game? I keep trying to play, and can barely make it past nightmare with soloing and not using Auction house. And they keep making it more difficult and unattractive, and I am a hardcore diablo fan since the beginning. Stop making a more difficult game, more difficult! It's getting tot he point where it isn't even fun anymore just hours spent between working, the girlfriend, and then trying to progress just a little.

    I don't mean to sound negative, but that's all I see coming from you, Blizzard. Stop it.


    I made it all the way to act 4 hell within the first few days without using the AH. I eventually had a surplus of money and decided to upgrade me 200 dps weapon into 400 dps. I was only a wd and I didn't even know about bears.

    So obviously you aren't playing right or something..

    So they're making Fury spenders even less attractive? Niiice. Not that anyone uses that passive anyway.


    I have my barb in Act 2 Inferno right now and I hardly ever use a fury spender. The only ones I would ever use are earthquake and WotB. I use leap (with 300% armor inc.), war cry (armor and resist), revenge, ignore pain, WotB, and frenzy. I swear fury hasn't meant too much to me so far. I'm constantly full.

    Edit: Also, is there a confirmation or some sort of source as to the patch is supposedly coming next week?


    Most spenders for a lot of classes aren't worth it in inferno, that's how min/maxxing works, in d2, they were only worth it mainly because you could just have mana on hit and just use it as a primary spam. In inferno, you use several utility and defensive spells and a primary. Even though this is a problem, they will address it more in the class balance patch.

    It's not that I am not playing right, it's that I don't have the time to sit there and farm for items, I do not like how this game is all about gear, that's important, but it shouldn't the main thing. All I see is negative updates, removing this and that, nerfing that, taking away this because it's not how 'they' want the game to be played. This should have all been done before the release, because the game at release WAS the game to me, now everything being done afterwards is just them removing things.

    Seriously, I have issues with the game right now, but your complaints are those of someone who shouldnt be playing this genre of games. Did you even know what you were getting into, or do you buy every game IGN tells you you should play?

    I did not need to farm gear until Inferno. I did redo Act 2, Act 3 and Act 4 in Hell, but only once, that's not really farming now is it? You need to look at your skills and your playstyle. THey matter alot more than your gear at low level (if not using the AH).
    Go in options, Gameplay, turn on Elective mode. Put 2-3 defensive cooldowns on your bars if you need to.

    Lmao, no. I bought this game because I've patiently waited 11 years to play it because I've been playing since the release of Diablo 1. I am complaining because they were in development for so long, and only now they are removing and balancing. I love Diablo, I love the lore, and I love the style of the game, but I simply cannot accept or condone Blizzards actions on how they are handling everything.

    I've been a part of beta since October of last year. So I know how much they have done. My only problem with it is the fact they are negatively impacting the game. It doesn't need to be harder, just balanced. If people are having problems with Inferno, inferno is broken not the characters, and making them weaker and less effective is definitely not fixing anything.

    They're nerfing Inferno.

    Diablo is not a subscription game. They really have no obligation to make any changes other than bug fixes after release. The balancing and overall improvements are because they want the game to be better for everyone.

    If you can't get through Nightmare without the AH or farming, you might want to evaluate your play-style.

    Awesome! I would at least think that one of the first real changes to the Barbarian Class would be a buff in the survival department but nope, it's a nerf for Fury spending! This really isn't a big nerf because most Barbarians use pure defensive cool downs, the fact is there is a nerf which is ridiculous. Most Barbarians use "Tough as Nails", "Superstition" and "Nerves of Steel" as their passives, that's some of the only few survival passives we can and are supposed to use. I just hope they buff the Barbarian Class next.

    So quick question. In the notes you guys state

    Achievements
    The following achievements -may- have been removed (removed from client)
    Five Fingers of Death - Make 10 enemies Bleed from one Exploding Palm
    Bystander - Kill 10 enemies in 3 seconds without attacking or casting any spells.
    Smash and Grab - Loot 5 chests in the Crumbling Vault.
    Minions of the Dark Templar - Kill 15 skeletons while fighting Jondar.
    King of the Hill - Complete the Last Stand of the Ancients event without leaving the top of the hill.
    Elementarachnophobia - Get attacked by all 4 types of elemental spiderlings within 5 seconds.
    Zeal for Heals - Heal a nearby player by picking up a health globe in a cooperative game.

    None of those achievements are in the game right now. Unless they are all feats of str and I can not find them. Could they maybe add them or where they achievements that didn't make the cut and they are just getting rid of them in the client?

    Are you really complaining about the game being harder now? the game is supposed to have some kind of challenge, and im not talking about hardcore mode. if people are having problems with inferno, then those people should re-evaluate their playstyle and strats because inferno is not broken and doesnt need to be easier.

    CE wings are white/blue though... I bet these are the black/purple ones and I'm really curious to know where they will come from.

    from the looks of it they are just getting rid of them in the client, as I did some digging and they were not FoS (they were marked as normal achs) so they could just be cleaning out achs. But figured it would be neat to see what they had planned.,

    God I hope it's that simple. :P

    I was thinking it could be a bonus if you order MoP collector's but... I dunno that'd be too much in my opinion.

    As for it being PvP related I doubt it, they made most of those rewards seem like sigils though they did say they'd be cosmetic. Wings are cosmetic?
