Vox doly booz thats good to know they ratchet it up with player lvl. I was afraid after what booz and melk said in the past more carebear is coming.

Chang not only do four players work with a 2.5 x hp multi they get party buffs too such as overawe to really cut down mobs. Imo itll be crazy to farm solo in expansion. Sorry guys with familes.

Grats on finishing, mate!

I'm hoping that they keep things tough. It's pretty heartbreaking seeing a game get nerfed just because the masses don't know what the hell they're doing. With skill and knowledge, you die a lot less. With that, you should understand that not everyone should be doing MP10 or T6 or whatever.

Mirror AI is definitely terrible. They just run away. I'd rather them just stand there like totem poles with a bit of life casting random spells for you.

I think it mostly has to do with A)- what kind of weapon you have equipped, and B)- the skills you have on your bar.

For 'A', if you have a Wand equipped, they'll run away a lot to get range and then shoot the Wand. If you have a Melee weapon equipped, they tend to stay close to mobs more often and swing instead of running away so much.

For 'B', if you have a channeled spell on your bar (which they cannot cast) they'll run away a lot doing absolutely nothing. But if you use non-channeled AP spenders they'll cast em rather frequently. Same with a lot of the utility spells (bubble, Frost Nova, etc).

Wow... never thought that weapon type would dictate Mirror behaviour. I'll have to test that.

I'm using Electrocute and LB... I don't really recall them using Electrocute but they definitely use LB and the other utility spells you mentioned.

I don't like ptr, cos:
- can't lvl up..
- can't use any lvl60+ items or skills
- can't use mystic

p.s. boozer, that was the probably the fastest crypt run I've done with x3 barbs.. lol (but ive only done crypt run with 3x barbs two times so far)

You do gain paragon XP on the PTR. I even gained a level on there, though only because I happened to be 99.9% of the way there by accident.

Of course that XP is lost when the PTR ends, so fat lot of good it'll do you.
