Season 23 | The Disciples of Sanctuary | Now Live!

I would have one question as I anticipate wow classic burning crusade release date will have a date close to the launch of season 24 of Diablo 3.
Could we talk about having a launch difference between them for at least 2 weeks? I played from 2006 to 2010 World of Warcraft I stopped after the appearance of the Cataclysm expansion and I switched to Diablo 3 I know I’m an almost casual player playing about 1-2 hours a day maximum and not every day depends on the service and family.

Can we at the very least get an explanation as to why GoD DH was not adjusted? Demon Hunters are currently the only class in the game without an A or S tier build according to Maxroll.gg (a dedicated D3 information website). With the nerf, Firebirds was an A tier build and now it will join Crusaders and Necromancers as an S tier build (not to mention Energy Twister builds were already S tier).

This kind of class favoritism is not good for the health of the community. As a Demon Hunter main who spent a lot of hours coming up with valid ideas to address the problem (the developers simply mentioned missile dampening was the only issue), I feel that my feedback has fallen on deaf ears again.

Hopefully with the set leaderboard filters, Blizzard can get better estimates of all the class set power. I bet you could have a few of us to look over the data and to make reasonable suggestions for number tweaks to improve intraclass and interclass parity.

You intentionally forgot to add “…gets buffed AND then nerfed” ?

Because that’s what happened to WD’s and to some degree Barbs. Even DH got nerfed.

But guess what? People WERE constructive and still buffed AND then nerfed. See the problem now?

Why do you guys hate the Witch Doctor seriously wtf man. Since the First PTR note EVERYONE has said the Witch Doctor nerf was totally unfair and uncalled for and this is how you guys listen is to totally ignore every single piece of feedback about it? You are totally destroying the last viable build of the entire class. :man_shrugging:

So Blizzard loves only Necro and Mages. They hate WitchDoctors and don’t like others. Sad story

It would be interesting to have statistics on

  • played classes
  • played sets + LON (for each class).

thx for listening.

now just give us a theme! even if its an old one pls

Revert Etched Sigil back.

Honestly dont know why it was changed or who thought it was a good idea. Maybe a nerf to a particular build? Changing it from any spender to exclusively twister is one of the most mind-boggling decisions ever. Its exactly the opposite of promoting build diversity by taking a really cool item and Pidgeon-holing it into something boring.

Don’t feed the troll, Shivan. Swampland Waders have at least a legendary affix. It’s just not a very good legendary affix - at least for now.

And that is a wasted affix for any class that isn’t a WD. The Waders were being used for their +20% elemental damage, despite the WD affix not because of it. The change to Blackthorne’s means non-WDs that want the elemental damage for their LOD builds don’t have to waste an affix any more.

When’s the last time you played (checks notes) sacrifice? And who are you calling a troll?

It is also one less reason to play a witch doctor since you won’t need one to pants upgrade.

Yeah, some other class can get them to drop (my first barbarian did, in fact) but there’s a pattern of “witch lives matter… except they don’t.”

Nobody actually played WD to get those pants. Any class that needed it just created a level 1 WD and upgraded level 70 pants until they got one. After that, that WD would never be touched again. So saying there’s one less reason to play is just a strawman.

Doesn’t make it any less true.

It does. Making Blackthorne’s roll elemental damage is an welcome change and it makes no difference in the number of WD players.

Yes…and? What’s your point, Meteor? Has nothing to do with my point. My point was Swampland Waders are aren’t useless. They still have one of two items that roll +% elemental damage on Legs, and the affix may be good again someday…you know, hopefully. Sacrifice builds used to be a thing. A long time ago.

They said they would adjust the wizard. They adjusted the wizard. Here people are moping about other classes. Here we have a reworked wizard that can still be walked around in. My point is that people complain about irrelevant things doesn’t help with Blizzard not listening to it’s consumer base about changes.
