    As Bashiok reported, we will be seeing a blog on magic find in 1.0.4. This may change the way we see and use magic find in Diablo III so make sure to check out this massive thread now.

    How can people vote YES to v1.0.4 changes?

    It's basically just a major nerf of mobs, and buff of drops..
    All the problems with missing end-game etc haven't been addressed.. There is NOTHING positive in v1.0.4, so far..

    You missed the part where it was mentioned that normal mobs will be buffed? The two groups will be brought closer in power, hopefully to the point where you can't just streamroll normal mobs and elites are not a Kilimanjaro in comparison.

    Buffing trash mobs doesn't matter, as they never posed any threat... Giving them more health, only slows the game down, it doesn't add anything..

    There is no point of farming the normal mobs... and with the WW spec.. you can skip all of them. So basicly its a nerf bat when you playing this spec.

    There is no end-game actually except for farming and farming in act 3..

    Ill be happy with a patch when they will add something like infinite dungeon lvl.. the higher lvl you going, the better the loots are. Thats for me could make the end game really nice. But actually its sucks.

    They didnt talk yet about nerf spell or something.. but I know they will nerf something else (for character)...

    We are really far away from what they said before Diablo 3 release loll. "Inferno will be hard, no one cant beat it for the first 3 month"... well said :)

    I'm thrilled about removing invulnerable minions. What a broken design that was...

    I like Invul/Shielding minions.. They could atleast put up some kind of resistance..

    Maybe some of us haven't actually killed Diablo on Inferno yet. I'm on Act 4, but I just can't bring myself to keep going. This future patch makes me a bit more excited to try and make that final push forward.

    Well.. I'm stuck at Ghom, so I haven't killed Diablo either.. But it doesn't change that there isn't any end-game..

    I can farm Act2 up to Belial, virtually with my eyes closed, but Belail still neds several tried to kill..
    Act3 up to Ghom is also pretty easy, but Ghom post-buff is a real bitch.. BUT STILL NO END-GAME!

    I haven't played for 3 weeks, as there is no progression in kiling Butcher/SK or Maggy/Kulle for the umpteenth time, and still not receive any usefull loot..

    This patch couldn't have come sooner. If D3 released with this, maybe the legendary weps I looted would have been worth something. That and the adjustment to class skill might allow more build variety (WD pet build), the adjustments to 2h weps might open up some barb builds, etc.

    Granted the nerfs to elites is really needed, but this is probably the first patch where "IMO" the positives out way the negatives.

    Now for some AH fixes....
