Seems like Blizzard didn't really tell anyone (aside from the blog post) and the patch is all server side tweaks, not client side, so this was a ninja-patch.

The Demon Hunter got a pretty decent nerf and a lot of people are now QQ'ing about it. Add yet another "d'oh!" to Blizzard and D3's list of 'fail'.

Go play a witch doctor if you like a challenge. In higher difficulties you will be pretty much forced to use life steal haunt, spam summon pets on every cd since they die very fast. I knew of the monk exploit/design flaw, I heard Athene was using it and thus Blizzard noticed it so fast.

WD can tank with his pets and at least it has ranged attacks. If you really want a challenge, play a Barb on Hell/Inferno. Life Steal + Attack Speed are critical for a Barb on these difficulties. It's fun though.

Sounds like some fairly decent Inferno solo builds just got ganked. It's like they're still trying to find out how they want some of these classes to play or something.

I think it's less that Blizzard doesn't like how people are playing the game, so much as Blizzard doesn't want these builds to be the only way to play the game. It's a severe lesson from Diablo 2 that they shouldn't forget, but can't be easy to solve.

There's just so much customization involved with each class' skills. I'd rather it be -- every build is viable, but difficult without extensive gear farm -- then -- these few builds make the gear farm easy, and maybe then you can try these other interesting builds.

...Aaaaand the Witch Doctor is safe, drop the confetti!

Maybe Blizzard wouldn't be having so many problems if they, you know, played the game before they released it. Maybe I'm still raging over the DRM, but I honestly prefer Diablo II by a mile.

Gah! No more smoke screen cheating! It was pretty unfair what you could do with that spell.

Grr, just hit 54 on my Wizard and Force Armor got nerfed! At least I didn't spend a lot of gold on 0-vitality items!
