Yes there's a balance to be struck between new and old. Although this mod shows just how much the devs at Blizzard could have done in d2, if only they'd thought of it and kept developing it (I never understood why they don't develop the diablo universe more than they ever have, it seems their most popular game setting).


I welcome the return of the Lightning Fury zon, because it was very much a fun build to play BUT...

    It was a cow-running build. You had to learn how to herd and...
    You also had inventory charms where each cold dmg charm added 1s freeze, which combined with pierce could freeze packs of cows solid for a long time

The latter is not as important for a LF zon as for a bowzon but now that cows are super-fast (so, hard to herd) and the loot is crap, the use case for a LF zon may be a bit limited - not sure how it will fare since even dense areas like Fautz aren't really all that dense compared to herded cows.

Can only suck it and see I guess.

UHM is going to be good for sure, but the announcement for the patch made it sound like there'd be super amazing changes for a lot of stuff that just didn't get, well anything that matters really. -_-

Not sure what's up with the downvotes, you're right. After the announcement, I expected a general buff to ele & poison trees but it ended up being a single target skill rework + pyroblast and tempest buffs. I guess you gotta agree with every change(or lack thereof) blindly no matter what.


How are you any different than these "blind agreers"? You're making the opposite argument with the same lack of information and playtesting.

It's a bit amusing when people say the announced sorc changes were "misleading" when word by word, what happened is exactly what was announced. I encourage everyone that thinks so to actually read the "Build Improvements" paragraph and not jump directly into the builds list to assume they are getting an amount of changes on par with new assassin build.

On the other hand seeing certain people demand early patch notes only to get super salty and cynical at some random "taken out of context" changes, makes me question if we should do early log releases at all. This endless battle between conspiracy theorists and believers is just getting too old and toxic. Now it seems that if you support a change you're dumb because the devs are just trying to fuck us over.

Even calling buffs "a nerf" seems to be the trend now and I've even heard (multiple times now) that this blatantly obvious buff patch is a "nerf patch".

Oh well. Keep it civil folks, is all I ask.

It should go without saying but there is a super secret runeword that uses 6 enchanted runes isn't there?

Wait and see. I have plans for Fire Sorc. Once I figure out how to work around its flaws, it should be a fairly decent build.
