    Support wizard is very squishy and wouldn't be quite as good as a support monk. Maybe a support crusader could work in place for a support monk but most likely not.

    This is very true health and toughness needs to be atleast doubled in order to have a 2 support meta with no cc changes and frankly I agree with your opinion to change the amount of CC mobs can get I mean only being able to stun them for 5 seconds before they become immune is something that makes it so there is no point in bringing a stun or another form of cc because you will be able too keep them from doing anything for 5 seconds but then you will be useless so instead of CC you might as well bring heals or something that improves toughness. The only way to get out of this 3 support meta is to revert the CC changes that were made. That means mobs cannot become immune to CC. Hell this change would be so good that you may only need one support with the new items also supports would feel like they are doing more because if they miss a CC rotation Then it will kill the whole group this way supports have a feeling of purpose.

    Ya sorry man it's not going to happen. Would it be nice ya but the thing if an ET Wiz tries to do over GR 100 without any support they will get one shot and that is with most classes. The damage reduction reduction given by sets and items are not enough all to make it worth having no supports also their is always a class which just has a lot more dps then all the other classes like wizards. If you think an LON buff would be good then you would kind of be right if you use hammer of the ancients on barb with the full LON set it will do roughly a few billion damage. Which for a 1200% damage buff that lon gIves does not make sense (I think it is 1200% with all ancient gear I'm not sure and I am too lazy too look). The damage buff on the IK set I know for a fact is less then 1200% however when using hammer of the ancients with the IK set yo do about 30 billion ish damage. The math doesn't add up. Most likely the reason is because the LON set bonus is not multiplicative if it was it would be better then alot of sets and most people would just use LON instead of actual sets. Sets in most cases offer damage bonuses and little game play changes which would make a set good. The game play changes are not what makes sets good the damage bonus is. However if sets were focused on giving damage bonuses through changes in the gameplay then they would be really good but this is not the case and in order to buff LON sets would need to have a damage buff because no one would play them. Take a look at witch doctor when LON was introduced the best build was garg lon because the damage was higher then the helltooth set now that helltooth is buffed the best build is garg helltooth. The problm is so big that in order to fix this set problem 99% of the sets would need total reworks and let's be honestb that's not going to happen.

    I agree with this. However this was because of blizzards decision that mobs should not be allowed to be permanently Cc'd. making mobs immune to being perma cc'd was pretty good choice but it just created more problems. Instead of 2 zdps now we have 3. The developers want the whole group to all be doing damage and frankly that is not going to happen their are not enough damage reduction items in the world to make having no zdps viable. To fix the gearing problem I would recommend blizzard to start focusing on making zdps sets or items and builds instead of destroying them. I'd your one of the few people who say "blizzard does not destroy support builds" then your wrong look at healing monk, blizzard annihilated that build. Look at globe barb, once again blizzard nerfed it to the ground. Instead what they should have done was buffed globe barb to a level that could compete with heal Monk and then you have just created build diversity and character diversity when it comes to pushing greater rifts.

    I mean of we are talking about what is really best for the Diablo fans then I would say that blizzard sells Diablo to another company. Now before everyone gets their panties in a bunch I want you to remember that d3 last patch got nothing just a few number changes and that's it. Take a game like league of legends for example although a much much bigger game number updates come out every week not every 3 months and the league balancing works and does not ruin a class (Monk after static charge and heal Nerf) I mean ya patch 2.4.1 had alot of stuff but it should be like that every patch and maybe even more I mean 3 months is a long time and we deserve content not numbers. I believe that if Diablo was bought by a company that was not as distracted with other games like blizzard is with overwatch, Hero's of the storm, and WoW then we might have a really good game that people look forward to playing EVERY season.

    Number balancing is not the correct fix for balancing sets gameplay changes however are the correct fix. For example let's say when using the ulianas set each enemy killed adds a stack to seven sided strike thus if you kill 7 enemies then it will be like your seven sided strike has no cooldown if you kill 14 enemies then instead of 7 strikes 14 would occur and so on. These can also all be chained together so your character could be invanurable for 10 seconds or more because of the chaining of the ability.This would only be beneficial in certain situations like packs with alot of adds however it would not be good against rift guardians that don't spawn adds (you won't be able to get more seven sided strike stacks) changes like these could make all classes viable, keep game play interesting and somewhat difficult, and more importantly balance all the classes.

    Believe it or not blizzard has been known to take alot of things off their forms that involves criticizing their games. I guess they don't like constrictive criticism.

    Same I love playing monk but supporting sucks. When healing monk was good at least I felt like I was doing something and had to get good gear in order to have better heals. Now I can do a gr 80 at paragon 600 easily with the gear that I got with my free set. It's stupid, I just hit stuff and stand there most times I watch YouTube while playing because I don't need to do anything, if the Wiz does dies it's not like I could have done anything to save them it's stupid. I wish blizzard would do some math on the sets and ability damage.(Example) They pretty much took static charge out of the game with how bad the Nerf was and that did on average 3b per tick of static charge. With the current meta Wiz builds in groups you are doing at least 100 billion damage. It was like that last season and they did not change it. Why ? I just pray that blizzard has a plan for Diablo and it does not suck because right now they don't listen to the community and do exactly what the the community does not want.

    Sometimes I feel like they don't even play their own games.

    If u look at a game like POE the reason why that game is so good is because their are no sets every item has a use even the normal items. The reason for this is because their are no sets. The LON set was good but it is not what we needed we need to have legendary's buffed so their are more build options and we are not locked into one build in POE you can make almost anything work and that is because there is nothing that just buffs one ability like sets. So if Diablo makes ability's better and makes legendary's better then we might have more build paths.
