After over a decade of bringing you the latest Diablo news and builds, DiabloFans will be shutting down on March 21st, 2019. On this date, we will archive the site in an effort to preserve the history. Thanks for your patronage throughout the years.
You get that impression, but it's actually the area damage / pain enhancer/ battle rage (bloodshed) causing the lag, and when the palms explode the lag actually stops. So the game freezes and lags, until somehow enough damage is done a mob and when the palm explodes, you are free from the lag because the mobs are dead. so in some way, EP kinda stops the lag.
