Upcoming Hotfixes - 3/21/14 - Forums - Diablo III

I don't get these guys..... every time I think they've finally got a handle on things they go and nerf something else.....

Complaints about lack of special loot benefits on torment levels should have been answered with some kind of bonus to torment levels... instead.... they decided the way to go was to nerf non torment level drops so that lvl 60 set pieces can now only drop on torment.

Not sure, but it feels to me like they also majorly nerfed drop quantity across the board.......

I figured they nerfed something when I didn't find anything remotely decent last night.

My barb used to run mp6 now he does torrent 1 and gets destroyed in torment 2+ The arcane sentries seem a lot more powerful than I ever remember. Guess I'm gonna have to hit it hard this weekend and try to get my paragon up. All I really want to do is build crusaders...

Speaking of lower end items that become interesting when they drop at ilvl 60..... :)

The Mighty Weapon is a bit low and needs a socket, but might be interesting if I happen to find a decent azarwraith (or whatever it's called), and I just might have to bring up a full lvl 60 monk to try out that fist weapon.... :)

They have to stop referring to resplendent chests as such, more like, maybe, if you are really, really, really lucky, it might be a slightly better than a normal chest... or a random corpse...

New character, and the legendaries are complete RUBISH... they borked that good.

Just hit lvl 23 with a new monk and one of the benefits to loot 2.0 is the low level set plans that can drop.... cain's + born's may not be the most awesome set bonus' , but they offer higher basic rolls than lvl 23 crafting on it's own. :)

Can't say I've got any kind of clue what I'm doing with these bloody monk skills though.... :)

just need a green gem in that fist weapon and your gold. The stun attribute when combined with fists of thunder and 7 sided strike will be epic. I'd share my build if I knew how. You definitely want the rune skill where you warp to enemies. Great for tracking down fast movers and goblins.

He's doing 130k with the retribution mantra.

This is my monk currently, think theres a tweak or two that I could still make with gear in my stash but for the moment I'm fairly happy with it, gotten up to T5 at this point. Any recommendations are always welcome. Still hunting for a Won Kim Lau and Ice Climbers, see if that happens tonight. Oh and hoping to complete Inna's set with the pants tonight or tomorrow before the xpac goes live.

And it seems that the entire xpac is already there just waiting to go live, no patches between here and then.
