[Patch] New Changes

7 posts in this topic

gamewide for all classes - a number of runes were changed to allow some form of most abilities to be used with any given elemental damage type.

 

MONK

they made the only change i wanted for monks. they gave sweeping wind a holy rune, and its the one that goes along with implosion. (flat spirit generation)

 

Wave of Light supposedly does more damage. Some runes have also been altered since they totally sucked before. (looking at you Pillar of the Ancients) Grouping with a Black hole wiz? try swapping cyclone strike for a new and improved wave of light and let us know if it did anything besides waste a ton of spirit.

 

CRUSADER

total overhaul. theyre tougher and 1h may now be viable instead of terrible. Particular legendary flails no longer required for some abilities to be viable. Passives redesigned to be good or at least decent instead of useless.

 

WITCH DOCTOR

angry chicken can walk through enemies! and spirit walk through walls. its a good day to be a weirdo. 

 

they also implemented some deranged crit averaging math to most dot skills. its for the best, but seems like a trick.

 

WIZARD

holy crap archon can be different elemental damage types now.

 

wormhole was altered a bit to be nicer but not as awesome.

 

BARBARIAN

slight changes maybe? i dunno. they dont seem that crazy.

 

ITEMS

and just after i DE my garbage puzzle ring, they make it way nicer. have fun kids, the goblen always gets you an item with max affixes now.

 

zomg legendary crusader shields might have decent block amounts? i'll believe that once i login. (why were regular yellow shields better at blocking than legendary crusader shields?)

 

Nothing about the Monk Inna set being redesigned to not roll resist all. the set remains insulting to monks.

Patch notes are really long. This will take a couple posts:
Patch 2.0.5 Now Live - Diablo III
Diablo III patch 2.0.5 is now live in the Americas. Check out the full patch notes below to learn all about the latest changes.
Important: Please note that you will not be prompted to download patch 2.0.5 until the patch is live in your home region. If you are logging in from a European or Asian client, you will need to wait for this patch to release in that region before it can be installed. Additionally, if your home region is in the Americas, you will be unable to log into Europe or Asia using Global Play after patch 2.0.5 is live until those regions have also patched.
Diablo III Patch 2.0.5 - v2.0.5.23920
Visit our Bug Report forum for a list of known issues. For a list of up to date hotfixes, please go here.
GENERAL
Increased the radius of "Strength in Numbers" (multiplayer buff) from 100 to 200 yards
Gold Find on items will now stack multiplicatively with the Gold Find bonus provided from game difficulty
This significantly increases the gold reward most players will see when playing on higher difficulty levels or wearing Gold Find gear.
Example: Suppose you are playing on Master (+200% Gold Find) and have 50% Gold Find awarded from items. A pile of gold drops that would normally be 50 gold. Your Difficulty bonus increases the 50 gold to 150 gold. Your 50% Gold Find will now increase the 150 gold to 225 gold.
The 300% Gold Find cap applied to items and Paragon Points has been removed
The Vote Kick system has received several changes to make it less restrictive:
Vote Kicking is now available after you have been in a game for 2 minutes (down from 5 minutes)
Killing a champion or rare pack no longer disables vote kicking for 15 seconds
After a boss kill, vote kicking is disabled for 15 seconds (down from 3 minutes)
Some additional restrictions were also relaxed
Known Issue: The tooltip will not reflect these changes
Tyrael will now chat about his poor eating habits with less frequency

Crusader
Philosophy
Crusaders should be the toughest class in the game and currently they are not. We've increased the 15% damage reduction to 30% to match that of the Monk and Barbarian. In addition we are removing the movement speed penalty on Heavenly Strength while also changing Fervor to be a very strong passive for Crusaders who want to play with a 1-handed weapon. Together these changes should solidify the Crusader fantasy of a powerful tank wielding a giant shield.
To better support character builds based on a specific damage type we are changing the damage type of a few select runes. This is an ongoing goal - additional changes may be made in the future to any of our classes to make damage types an interesting consideration for character building.
Akarat's Champion has been redesigned. Many of the runes were lackluster while Rally was both too strong but also promoted a style of play that consisted primarily of mashing buttons mindlessly. We've redesigned Rally and buffed the skill and all the other runes.
Overall builds that used certain skills such as Judgment - Resolved could do solid damage (though somewhat inconsistent), but if you did not take specific skills or have access to specific Legendary items the damage would fall behind. We are nerfing Judgment - Resolved significantly. A change this large is never easy but this was a mistake we should have caught.
To keep Crusader damage competitive we are buffing most of the Crusader's damage abilities across the board. While a few skills have come down slightly in damage, the vast majority are being increased, some by a large margin.
Fist of the Heavens and Blessed Shield both fill a similar role of being ranged multi target skills. In order to provide better differentiation we are adjusting Fist of the Heavens to be better at damaging a single target, with the area damage component being a peripheral bonus. To this end the damage of the primary strike of Fist of the Heavens has been increased, while the damage of the secondary bolts has been decreased.
Finally, we have done significant redesign to the Crusader's passive abilities. We feel there was an overall lack of interesting passive choices on the Crusader. Rather than try to simply change numbers on existing passives we've tried to provide interesting and compelling choices.

Barbarian
Philosophy
To better support character builds based on a specific damage type we are changing the damage type of a few select runes. This is an ongoing goal - additional changes may be made in the future to any of our classes to make damage types an interesting consideration for character building.
Rend is being changed to make the damage more consistent. The difference between getting a Critical Hit or not on Rend made the ability too unpredictable. This is particularly important when the player has the option of reapplying the Damage over Time effect.
Finally, we are buffing the least used Fury spender - Seismic Slam. While there will always be a least used skill, we feel the aesthetic of Seismic Slam is very strong, and we would love for more people to enjoy using it. To this end we are making the skill mechanically easier to use as well as directly buffing the damage.
Active Skills
[Frenzy][5]
Skill Rune - Sidearm
Damage type changed from Physical to Cold
[Overpower][6]
Skill Rune - Crushing Advance
Damage type changed from Physical to Cold
[Rend][7]
Rather than rolling for a Critical Hit, Rend will now calculate an average damage augmented by your Critical Hit Chance and Critical Hit Damage on application and apply that damage evenly over the duration of the entire DoT
Note: Since the skill can no longer deal a Critical Hit, it will no longer trigger effects that occur on Critical Hit.
[Revenge][8]
Skill Rune - Best Served Cold
Damage type changed from Physical to Cold
[seismic Slam][9]
Now also hits enemies in a 10 yard wide, 10 yard long area in front of you in addition to the existing cone

Demon Hunter
Philosophy
Demon Hunter survivability is lower than we would like. While the Demon Hunter is not as tough as other classes, this can be frustrating when taken to an extreme. The change to the Awareness passive is a first step; we will be keeping an eye on this and making additional changes as needed in the future. The Marauder's Set bonuses are attractive, but often the pets would get in each other's way or Sentries would not use your spenders often enough. To help improve this set's functionality, Companions have received collision box revisions and the rate at which Sentries use your Hatred spenders has been increased.
Active Skills
[Companion][47]
Companions's collision boxes should now more closely match their actual size, and allow them to more effectively surround enemies
[Grenade][48]
Will now more reliably explode when an enemy is near the thrown grenade
Explosion radius increased from 5 to 6 yards

Witch Doctor
Philosophy
To better support character builds based on a specific damage type we are changing the damage type of a few select runes. This is an ongoing goal - additional changes may be made in the future to any of our classes to make damage types an interesting consideration for character building.
We are changing the way Fetish Sycophants works. Previously it triggered while casting. This caused it to create twice as many fetishes with certain skills such as Firebats (which trigger on-cast effects at double the normal rate), and also create fetishes even when there was no target available. We want to preserve the existing Fetish builds while allow Fetish Sycophants to be combined with all skills in the Witchdoctor arsenal. Fetish Sycophants now works with all skills and triggers on hit rather than on cast. While this means you can no longer get fetishes by simply casting at nothing, you will now get more fetishes if casting against large groups of enemies. In the case of spells other than Firebats, you will generally get more Fetishes than before. In the case of Firebats, you will get less Fetishes than before versus 1-3 targets, and more fetishes than before when facing groups of 5 or more.
Haunt and Locust Swarm are being changed to make the damage more consistent. The difference between getting a Critical Hit or not made these abilities too unpredictable. This is particularly important when the player has the option of reapplying the Damage over Time effect.
The Witchdoctor sometimes had trouble keeping up in a party situation. At the same time, we feel each class should feel unique. To this end we are redesigning Fierce Loyalty to improve the Witchdoctor's mobility in a uniquely Witchdoctor way.

Wizard
Philosophy
To better support character builds based on a specific damage type we are changing the damage type of a few select runes. This is an ongoing goal - additional changes may be made in the future to any of our classes to make damage types an interesting consideration for character building.
Wormhole is by far the most common rune choice on Teleport. While we like the functionality and frequency with which it allows you to cast Teleport, we do not like the frustration it sometimes produces: players are often left clicking wildly, feeling punished for misclicks, or increased frustration if you find yourself up against an obstacle that wastes your second and third Teleport. To improve this experience we are reducing the cooldown on Teleport to 11 seconds and changing Wormhole to only give one additional cast, but increasing the window of time you have to use your second Teleport to 3 seconds. This affords the same number of Teleport casts overall as before while allowing you to be more thoughtful and deliberate about how to use your second Teleport. With the base cooldown on Teleport coming down to 11 seconds, all runes should now be more appealing. While the effect on some runes has been reduced, this should be more than made up for by the reduced cooldown in all cases.
