Firebird's Finery Hotfix: May 4th

Recommended Posts

Blizzard wanted to release a hotfix for the interaction between Mirror Image and the Firebird's 2-piece set bonus today, but the change resulted in a mid-season nerf to Firebird's Finery, so they reverted it to its original state.

Hi everyone!

We wanted to share transparency on the hotfix released today. Our original fix with the Mirror Image and Firebird’s 2-piece bonus was intended to remove an unintended interaction that was causing errors to occur on the back-end. Upon reflection, we realized this was a mistake to release a mid-season nerf to Firebirds. Through the recent patches, our team has been able to correct the back-end errors and we have reverted the nerf to allow Mirror Images to proc the Firebird’s 2-piece set. This should restore the Firebird’s power to its original state, while also hopefully improving the lag players are seeing. We appreciate your patience and feedback on this. Thank you!

      Blizzard fixed an unintended interaction on PC that caused Mirror Image deaths to trigger a meteor to fall from the sky.
      Note that this is a PC only and doesn't affect consoles.

      It seems an item has been causing a lot of issues for players, but Blizzard was quick to fix it:
      Razor Strop Fix (source)
      Today we addressed an issue related to the Razor Strop item. After some investigation, it appears that the item was causing long game freezes for players and making it difficult for some to connect to games.
      A fix has been applied, and we will keep our eyes peeled if the issue persists. Thanks everyone!

      Season 23 starts today, and we're looking at which class to play and the tier rankings.
      Solo Greater Rift Push Build Rankings for Season 23
      If you like to play alone and would like to push rifts, we recommend you the following builds for each class, with more builds listed in our solo Greater Rift pushing guide.
      Barbarian: Wrath of the Wastes Rend Build Crusader: Aegis of Valor Heaven's Fury Build + Thorns Bombardment Build Demon Hunter: GoD Hungering Arrow Build Monk: Sunwuko Tempest Rush Build Necromancer: Masquerade Bone Spear Build Witch Doctor: Mundunugu Spirit Barrage Build Wizard: Firebird Flame Blades Build Speed Farming Tier Lists for Season 23
      These are your best class choices if you prioritize speed-clearing bounties, Greater Rifts, or Torment 16 standard rifts in Season 23. For more details, check out our speed farming and rankings guide.
      S-Tier: Necromancer, Demon Hunter A-Tier: Wizard, Barbarian B-Tier: Monk C-Tier: Witch Doctor, Crusader The Group Meta for Season 23
      Determining the exact meta is more complex, which is why we're listing class roles at which the classes excel in Season 23. You can find a more in-depth look at how individual classes perform in a group environment in our group meta overview.
      Best Trash Killers for Season 23 will be Masquerade Bone Spear Necromancer. LoD Poison Scythe Necromancer and Firebird Flame Blades Wizard. Best Rift Guardian Killer compositions revolve around DPS builds that focus on single-target damage, mainly stacking the Bane of the Stricken gem. The best ones are Aegis of Valor Heaven's Fury Crusader and Firebirds Flame Blades Wizard. Best at Grouping are Support Barbarians with their Ancient Spear and other classes that utilize items like The Executioner and Strongarm Bracers. Best Tank Support for Season 23 goes to Inna Monk! The best class for Experience Farming is Wrath of the Wastes Rend Barbarian since Barbarians can move extremely fast while dealing consistently high AoE damage. We hope you will enjoy Season 23, and we'll see you in the game!
