Season 23 | The Disciples of Sanctuary | Now Live!

No. I just, when playing a Necromancer, don’t play solo so the follower was never used.

Now I will.

Sorry, wanted to reply to the topic and replied to you by mistake.

I don’t actually care. I was looking forward to playing Firebird, and once again they only have a sledgehammer for tuning.
I’ll probably make a quick WW Barb a week later when I can get an easy PL, grab the rewards and go play something else.

Scalpel? What’s that? All adjustments made are made using a mystical sledgehammer. Sorry I couldn’t help myself.

I am just glad the season launch during Easter holiday. Would have preferred this week, but this is second best I guess.
First season in a long time that seems worth playing, due to the altered follower system.

Great callout. Launches will be updated to reflect CEST timing to hit that 5pm timeframe. Thanks!

Firebird:

6 piece multiplier (2000% + 100%) / (4000% + 100%) = ~0.512
Combustion stacks damage (50 * 3000%) / (100 * 7500%) = 0.2

Overall nerf down to ~10% power of what it was on the PTR. I understand it was overperforming but slice the damage by 10?!

I ask again: Will we get new/fresh rankings?

Can you please iterate more on this change?

  • Teleport - Adjusted Wizard’s Teleport animation speed.

Did y’all reduce or increase the animation speed? Can you say specifically what was changed on it? This can be something major just hiding in the shadows.

Eras will be reset once the 2.7.0 patch goes live.

The change/update is intended to increase the speed (buff) of the teleport.

Firebirds will still be good?

I really don’t understand the brutal nerf of the Firebird set.
It was performing allright, on per with the top sets. It is now useless AGAIN.

It went roughly 15 GRs down. The damage output is ~10.24% of what it was on the PTR.

It’ll be miracle if it’s even mediocre.

I really hope Blizzard hears the community about this insane Wizard Nerf. The Firebird set has a lot of potential and overall, yes it needed a nerf from the PTR. We all knew that, but they over shot again. 15 tiers completely ruins it’s potential and all the variant builds for the Firebird’s. I think this can be easily fixed with a buff to either the 2-Piece or increasing the number of stacks on the 4-piece.

Why punish players with another season of rats? Revise the firebirds nerf so that starting the new season as something other than Barb/Necro is viable. So many players from all levels of skill and dedication were excited to bring wizard back into the meta and shake up the xp meta. Please, you still have time to revise the nerf.

And they didn’t adjust the stack decrease time, so your damage and teleport now decreases twice as fast as before.

They killed the one skill that I really wanted to use with Lyndon.

I would have been happy with 5-7.

  • The Scoundrel launches a cloud that covers a 20-yard area and lasts 5 to10 2 to 4 seconds based on the Scoundrel’s Dexterity. All attacks against enemies that are inside the cloud will be critical hits.

Interesting changes, now followers will be overall more desirable between them. I would like LoD/LoN on followers but baby steps, the changes will improve some builds than others and often bring some builds more closer to each other(good thing).

About rathma, it’s tricky but I think could work. Not sure anymore about the bone spirit potential, so only testing to know how it lands.
The land of the dead invigoration change don’t know what means, maybe the health cost? Because the essence cost during the land with invigoration was already 0.

About firebird, well even if the nerf was severe will be stronger than before(pre-rework). Also if the mirror image mechannic works the build still be fine. Most likely A tier.

About dh, the increase on pierce could help on push, but on speed the impact will also increase, at least below 5. I hope they avoid too many pierces to not get the same issue again or generate even more performance issues.

I would also to see fix on black hole from wiz, often leaves mobs with 1 hp(needing a necro or executioner to kill them).

I hope everybody have a good season.
