There are so many frustrating mechanics once you are 38+ (for both.. ranged and melees)
Frozen draining your life like mad, Thunderstorm cutting "unavoidable" 1/2 to 3/4hp tick.. AAAAND then we have the mentioned winner, BOOM Jailer! (better than BOOM Headshot! apparently). This is for ranged.
Blizzard just have to tune down scalling of several affixes (or better yet stop scalling damage of mobs at certain point),. there is no gameplay, no challange, no skill involved in being instagipped by Jailer (and no, you cannot simply spec into tank as ranged.. cause you need the DPS to eventually kill the mobs).
Melee? Well just yesterday I found lovely 5 champ pack in tight cave map.. Only two affixes were enough, Waller and Plagued. In Cave surrounded by 3 walls from each side as they spam it on you.. nothing to be done with the pack (Stampede build and I usually don't cary the wall breaking potion on Crusader..). This bring the RNG issue of tight passages and wallers.
Use the arcane immunity amulet. Problem solved.
Are you sure that mechanic requiring to use one specific item to not get insta killed is correct? There are all kind of immunity amulets of course, but eventually you can dodge packs that have Electro if you cannot fight them that does not apply to Jailer (you play Crusader, or it seems. I hope you had Electro immunity ammy and never cried about Fire chains, that would be against your sound advice).
I guess your post count is more important, stating the obvious to one fragment of my post
Fire chains - position yourself so you never be rounded by the elites (I'm playing HC monk as well, not only stampede cruss, so I have to position myself good in 30+ grifts).
Electrify - just ignore those elites and proceed further.
Jailer / Arcane Bean - Arcane immunity amulet
Every other affix is easy to dodge. If you have problem with frozen tick damage just get yourself some Cold resists on 2nd magic affix (you think why people often have 3 or 4 same set items? You can reroll 2nd magic affix for cold resist - ofcourse on items that you don't have all ress like gloves/rings/bracers/amulet/helmet). If you have arcane immune amulet you don't have to have arcane as 2nd affix, do you? So just stack those, dodge fire and ignore lighting elites. OR use some Melee reduction items like Ear's belt (30% melee reduction - frozen is melee affix).
My God. Work for your prize. You remind me of my friend who once killed by arcane beam (because he stood there on the arcane) said that Blizz should nerf this and quit the game.
