It is still one of the strongest builds in the game and it allows you to do the majority of the bosses with minimal gear.
the build feels like complete crap to play now. there is no rhythm anymore it feels clunky and bad to play, shockwave feels like ass to use. catalyst on bosses with 20 sec cd is worthless if they move, this change was not well thought out.
if catalyst trap was so strong nerf the damage bonus on it some the build will at least still feel the same to play. I thought even the 10 sec cd was a bit much. in any area above TA catalyst is almost mandatory to clear with. and this was with 1k+ tg in gear and all charms up to 125. there is no way to scale traps outside of spell damage and when 90% of your damage is locked behind a 20 second CD I think we have the right to be upset.
just my 2 cents.. I feel like there could have been other ways to nerf the build outside of making it feel terrible to play, it already felt very subpar in terms of clear speed before the change.
