Legendary source/mojo dmg nerf intentional or not?

Could we please get a confirmation on whether the nerfs to damage rolls for legendary sources and mojos were intentional or not? There have been multiple threads on the damage nerfs people have noticed after the patch, but we still have no idea whether it was a bug or an intentional nerf. Here are some of threads so far:

Also here's a google cache of one of the sources, so you can see the damage values got changed: http://i.imgur.com/1P9JADD.jpg

Edit: Just would like to make a reminder: I am NOT referring to the bug in your armory profile where your source/mojo will appear to have 6-7 damage. This is a bug with the website and is NOT reflected ingame. This thread is referring to actual changes of the in game damage values of sources and mojos.

Howdy, all!

I mentioned this thread to the folks who can investigate it, and we're currently trying to find out why some of you have a damage reduction to your sources and mojos. Thanks for bringing it to our attention, and for your patience while we look into it.

There is definitely something amiss as all of the LV 70 rare sources and mojos have significantly higher damage values than their legendary counterparts.

Never mind offhands!

BUFF 2 handers! They are obsolete due to way less dps output and stats!

There's a Reddit thread on this as well.

Legendary stat ranges got nerfed hard.

Whether intentional or not, no one knows.

Yep my Uhlk has base lvl 60 mojo damage (see my profile)
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/uhkapian-serpent
^lvl 60 stats

its a lvl 70 item so should have the lvl 70 prefix damage not a lvl 60 mojo prefix damage....

would be nice to see if blizz can do a rolling buff update to all 70 mojos on characters as it should tripple the damage output atm!!

well the online profile is likely wrong, i know mine is. if you look at it in game it will have higher stats than the website lists.


What people are talking about is the actual in game damage stats are lower than they where before.

In game stats legacy 60 new 70
