From what i am reading through various forums it appears this is not a demon-Hunter friendly patch,and after a few hours farming act 1(as usual) i have to say i am finding this patch has made little if any improvements to my gameplay experience.
on the new loot system,i have found 2 ilvl62 items,no 63's as yet...on the tentacle nerf i am at the point where i am thinking the Butcher is not worth killing anymore...it takes me twice as long now to kite him round only to get half the rares...nice to have a guaranteed rare from pack's with 5nv stax though...but i do have to say the repair cost is a little over the top to say the least.
So i just wanted to find out your thoughts on this patch,i especially want to hear from all you DH's.

Behold, as a wild ass in the desert, go I forth to my work.
I lost a lot of dps this patch, so I ditched a few IAS items, replaced them with life on hit / crit / res all and vit items. I went from 13k life to 43k life, and from 68k dps to 38k dps. I stopped using tentacles, changed my build a little, and am farming fine. Elites take a bit longer to kill, I don't die as much as before though, and reflect damage elites don't oneshot me anymore.
It's a very comfortable patch if you know how to adapt to change. Sure it's a little more challenging, but it's also easier. And I think melees like it even more than DH.
On my WD, I find it awesome as well. I can farm Act 1 Inferno like before, but I'm actually getting items that will let me go do Act 2.
My barbarian loves it. Before I could die to white mobs in act 2, today I kill elites with poison/desecrator/jailor in the same act without much trouble. They way overdid the nerf, but I don't care since I already completed the game on another character.
