    "affixes on items will now roll their level based on the level of the monster killed (rather than the item's level) This now applies to random affixes on Legendary items"

    what does this mean?
  • #3 TheHungryOne
    I guess it means getting a legendary at a3 (or anywhere mlvl 1 or higher) can get you bigger numbers (in terms of quantitity of, for exemple, intelligence) when rolling a legend item

    This has been covered in several blue posts, now the random affixes that are on legendary items are also changed the same way, making them stronger

    Can anybody decipher the bit about health globes and poison?

    Edit: Oh, it must mean potions.
  • #6 Findulidas
    It says nothing behind spirit barrage... should it mention that the 3 extra spirits on the rune has 40 yard reach instead of 25?
  • #7 WNxManiacMan
    I will definitely use Sentry with my Demon Hunter in the next patch.

    Yup, it is supposed to be potions. Lylirra confirmed on Twitter (but I cannot post URLs).

    It means "Random Properties" not the "FIXED rolls" will have a chance to roll higher.
  • #11 lorien1973
    Haunt is interesting now, esp that 2 second rune. Let's you ignore LOS, or even targeting bad guys. Better DPS on the move too.
  • #12 garnok
    finally turrets cost hatred. Never made any sense why it cost discipline. Might be using that now, seeing how i wont be forced to have all the survival skills on my bar anymore
  • #13 IgnatiusReilly
    How nice that they're buffing one of my favorite Wizard skills so much (Disintegrate). Thanks, Blizz!
  • #14 GroentjeBE
    No notes on the barb class?
  • #15 Taogunka
    no more tabs in stash?
  • #16 pikke
    Spirit barrage.....?

    I used to like turret the way it is, I'll give it a try once the patch comes live (I'm not in PTR right now)

    Good news about pets, summons, etc behaviour.

    Also Haunt gets a nice boost.

    We will end up needing an "audio effects wiki" to learn them all! :lol:
    But it's good news, too.

    Thanks for sharing, overneathe!

    Yeah, you are right.

    Question then becomes, whats supposed to be under spirit barrage?
  • #18 Ashes
    Quote from Taogunka

    no more tabs in stash?

    I think we'll have to wait for expansion for that.

    Also, why no patch-note on Hellfire Ring damage change?
  • #19 venom1stas
    The legendary affix change isnt much of a buff if I am correct. At least not as much of a buff as you first think.
    It only applies to RANDOM affixes. DMG affixes on legendaries arent random so their face DPS value wont be any higher. Ofcourse they will roll higher crit hit dmg or other affixes that increase your overall dps.
  • #20 Zek
    They really should just make all legendaries ilvl63 and set the static stats accordingly, especially now that they're basically doing that to rares. I don't know why they want to intentionally reduce variety by giving some of them inferior potential.
