Comments

  • #1 Bagstone
    Yay! AT LAST! Finally the Tal Rasha's set bonus isn't completely useless anymore. (Even looks almost OP compared to some others, typical "let's buff it... oops, OP" - but who am I to complain? Love it :P)

    And also nice to see they moved the 7% CC up to 3 piece, though I think it's still a bit much (should be 5% or so)... but at least non-dex classes don't feel that tempted anymore to get 2 Nat pieces just because of an OP bonus.
  • #2 Seifa
    Speaking about Natalya's set. I'm kinda sad they moved the last bonus to 4 piece instead of keeping it to full set. Like in D3V, there is no reason to have a full set because you unlock the final bonus without a piece (well, you forget about weapons because they are terribad, but that's not the point). I'd love to have a reason to wear the whole set, maybe a visual bonus? (aura, hint hint).
  • #3 elektrar
    Very nice changes overall, finally you have increased the main stats gain to 250 instead of 100 which completely did not make sense since now you can reach 10000 main stat - so even 250 is not that much when you have piece of armour or weapon with 900. I would increase it even more. But please remove, change or substitute the innas sweeping wind reduce spirit cost affix - honestly who cares whether you spend 75 spirit or just 5 for sweeping wind when now within 1 second hitting the monsters I can gain 70 spirit easily? I was so glad when I saw this removed and it is back again. Gaining basic mantra effects is very good idea, is it removed now? And spirit regen 1 is absolutely nothing, 0.33 was pathetic, but at least 2 or 3 would be needed.
  • #4 Mehsiah
    Haha can't believe deadmau5 is now officially in game. Gratz to him! :)
  • #5 Koksii
    I dont understand blizzards logic. Nerfing something from 500% to 100% seems like they just buffing and nerfing randomly without any reason / system. I also cant understand why they are nerfing skills that already no one uses even more (wall of zombies for example)

    Over all not bad but getting a little worried now at the time frame Blizz is shooting for. 61 days out from 3/18 and we can assume 2.0 rolling out a weekish before RoS hits. Time is winding down very fast and Blizz is still tweaking and adding to 2.0 skills and items. Blizz still has to get a "final" product boxed and ready for shipping call it a 2 week time frame so that drops the over all time from 61 days down to 55 days and thats still not a lot of time for the final tweaking.

    I'm just getting this really bad feeling that we are going to get a really unfinished product shipping out with a whole lot of after sale patching.Almost as if Blizz has already planned for this exact time line.

    Keep in mind that the physical copy will likely just be a DVD that has the downloader on it, the product key, 3-4 useless trial keys for World of Warcraft, and 1 or 2 physical goods...that is, if they're going to keep in-line with the original Diablo III release. It's not like Diablo II where you can speed up the install by using the discs over the downloader.

    Why aren't there any 5 set bonuses listed?

    Why aren't there any 5 set bonuses listed?


    Because the top tier set bonuses count as Passive Effects.

    Still, it would be very informative to have them listed next to the 2,3,4 pc bonuses.

    • ItemPassive_Unique_Ring_738_x1-Removes the cooldown of Summon Zombie Dogs.
    Does this mean that 0dogs is much easier to use :D This will make for such a nice change, no more need to stack several pieces just to be able to almost get it down to 0 in RoS. Hope someone will try this out when it's implemented...


    This also seam interesting ^^

    • ItemPassive_Unique_Mojo_003_x1-A Zombie Dog is automatically summoned to your side every {VALUE1} seconds.
