Yea… good call by blizzard on that one, lol.
Yay! I’m remaining hopeful.
Too late for me Blizzard I already uninstall the SS, see you at launch.
The point is to make me happy. Mission accomplished.
see ? the devs are listen !
i guess we need to cry harder
The minions don’t need buffs, they just need to be able to survive boss AoEs. Which could be accomplished by simply having them take less damage from boss AoEs while leaving them otherwise unchanged.
Too bad they are being buffed
Yea should have done it this morning and maybe many groups wouldn’t have had issue doing ashava.
Blizzard should extend to Monday thanks to this.
The point is to get some testing done before release.
I applaud them for getting a hotfix out and not just tweak it for release.
You know what i’d call an update that improves their survivability?
good move by blizz, listen the product manager for D4 mains a necro like its the best class in the game. His baby is not going to suffer.
I don’t think they mentioned how they are being buffed but my guess would be that it’s their survivability which is being buffed only as that seems to be the main complaint.
I’m actually quite interested in what the buffs ultimately are. Completely transparent, these devs are not.
Their damage definitely needs to be buffed a little as well.
They should of Never Touched Necromancer to begin with
I’m curious what it will be. I really hope it’s a buff to the priest only.
Minion damage could definitely use a tweak.
But their main problem is that dead minions do 0 dps.
You should almost never lose a minion to white mobs.
You should lose 1 or 2 to an elite.
You might lose several during a really hard elite fight.
You should have to resummon all of them 1-3 times during an appropriate boss fight. More or fewer times if youre over/under geared/leveled.
