    Details on Dyes and Legendary Items
    Some details have been published about why colored dyes will take some time before being able to be applied to Legendary gear.

    We are trying to get Vanishing Dyes for Legendary items ready for patch 1.0.7. In fact, this may be added to an upcoming PTR build if all goes well, so keep an eye out for that.

    As with most things related to game development, it is always much faster to talk about changes than it is to implement them.

    The Vanishing dye for legendaries has been the most frequently requested dye for legendaries by far, and this is maybe why people tend to overlook that we actually also need to make the other dyes work as well. It is not simply a matter of just disabling textures, in fact all the textures on all legendaries will have to be redone so that dyes will work on them... this is a massive and rather time consuming task as you can maybe imagine.

    I probably won't understand why because I'm terrible at drawing, but wouldn't it be easier to draw the actual wings of tyrael than those ones?
    Bashiok - Blizzard Representative - 08/01/2011 -"So how many skill combinations are there now? Well taking into account 6 active skills, all the rune combinations, and 3 passives we currently expect each class to have roughly 2,285,814,795,264 different build combinations."

    I think both have their easier and more difficult aspects. I think it's a shame we see so many gravitate towards traditional wings when the Sanctuary angels have such an interesting twist. Cool drawing for sure though :)

    The Enchantress offers a 3% Attack Speed increase and a small EHP boost. She can also reach the highest levels of MF for a follower, as well as providing limited combat support by charming enemies.


    This is not true... Templar can get the most MF with Sun Keeper 45% + shield 20%. This was from Zucchero's DH guide btw.

    Excellent observation, I'll modify that. Sorry for the misleading information :)
