Lovely, so much for the DPS of the bulk of my characters.

Wow that's a rather long maintenance day if you look at it, 3am PDT to 1pm PDT, 10 hours.

Would suck for me if I didn't work all day, because that's 7am ADT to 5pm ADT.

Seeing as I have nothing so far that does IAS for me, I shouldnt feel the effect of this change. Wanting to see the official patch notes none the less...

That's actually datamined speculation and not from official patch notes. Datamined can be rather inaccurate with a small sample size or if values are changed before a patch goes live.

The 50% # is not official, but the ias nerf was "announced" by a "blue" on thei forums last night.

It was also in the post of the upcoming patch on the main Diablo 3 page. No details, just an announcement of the nerf. The change to the gem crafting will be welcome too. The change to the drops is the biggest thing people will like, and they said that Act 2 Inferno will be tuned.

There will be lots of whining, but my motto is "never use real money to buy in game items!" and you won't be pissed off when they change things.

Adapt and overcome, it is only a game folks :)

Yes, my point is the fact it could only be a 10% nerf, rather then a 50%, we don't know until patch details are released after the servers are live.

True, like anything the rumors are usually worse than the actual. I have very little IAS equipment on my monk, but if they change, then I change. Even though it is frustrating at times I am still having fun.

I really really really really really hope this patch gives us a decent chance to gear up aside from using the auction house. I might actually start playing a little again, haven't played for a few days now. I've logged on then immediately log off and go do starcraft.

Have you not seen the developers notes on 1.03 about a week or two ago. Act III/IV Hell and thensome have had all their drop rates increased:

Patch 1.0.3 Design Preview - Diablo III

Yes I have seen all of the dev notes but we will see. We will have to play to see what the drops are really like though.
