Diablo® III

From RoS Streams, DH's are back to..

where we started! Seems like RoS is indeed game changing.

Here's what I noticed from the streams:

1) You cannot stop and tank anymore. No more Gloom nor snapshot of it.

I was watching a RF DH playing on stream and he was literally being raped by any monsters which don't die within a couple of hits. Saw a REFLECT pack and knew it was the end for him. Had to revive like 10+ times before he finally killed it. Then he went for one of the major Act 5 boss and was raped again. He retried at least 10 times before giving up. RIP RF.

2) It's back to pre nerf Inferno again! DH's have to constantly move, then hit, then move. If you miss a step and stop, RIP.

Currently watching Athene on his DH on Master difficulty, and he is dying plenty too, not as much as the previous DH from 1) though. He isn't killing the mobs, just running past them to try and skip them. He is using L4N which is useless IMO, the discipline regeneration is not enough, low stats, low armor. I've seen some of the new gear and they add tons of high stats (300+, high armor). I must add he is really bad at controlling DH, probably spend too much time on poe aka piece of !@#$.

Seems like slow/freeze/charm enemies and life regeneration will be extremely useful in RoS,

3) Group play is really important now.

If you want to clear the game efficiently, you need a good team of melee and range. Those who do crypt runs will get a good idea. Different roles contribute different advantages. A really good zdps monk will do wonders for a DH or range char. A high damage decent EDPS DH will make clearing the mobs so much faster.

Did a check and seems like almost every class have to kite on torment difficulty.

This is great news for us, since we have the most mobility and easily dish out high damage from afar.

From what my friend told me, nothing changed about 'snapshotting' in RoS. But of course, shadow power changed.

My bad, Rf still snapshots but since it's primary use was to snapshot Gloom's LS... not happening in RoS anymore.

Analogous to the first 3 months of release when everyone was in junk ilvl60 items; a synopsis is based on painfully under geared characters.

watching other high end geared classes play, and get their !@# handed to them. Makes me wonder how gameplay going to be for hardcore demon hunters, lol.

If that goes live, we'll be gods

Not really gods tbh. The LoH apparently sucks. We will probably have to rely a lot on smoke screen/caltrops -> tort ground.

I would love to try my PVP DH in this tough PVE setting. If survival is the issue, I should have an edge compared to most other DH. Too bad they didn't send me an invitation to the friends and family beta lol.

IMO solo is going to be impossible for a while, or at least impossible to do efficiently. If we party up with a tank, or someone who can spam CC skills, we'll do quite well.

Our class will do well regardless. Those that have been used to having to avoid getting one shotted will still be able to do the same in RoS and will be able to solo content.

The biggest changes I've seen in streams is that melee combat in general now requires some thought and decision making in battles. Those accustomed to being able to play while fapping and browsing the interwebs are having the toughest times ATM.

That said, unfortunately I haven't seen a DH RoS streamer that can control the class impeccably well yet.

I can't believe that you didn't get a beta key...

Did any good DH's get one?
