either that or instead of nerfing HS, make a 1h/shield passive, that is just as good. This way there is a choice for which you run with.
Both requiring a passive slot... (meaning builds are forced into only 3 passives).
Honestly, I think more pairs sound have trade offs indeed if straight buffs (like keystones in POE).
I think the easiest way to balance HS is to make you take more damage... reduce your shield block chance and amount by 20%'
