Diablo® III

Prepare for Nerfs for Barbs (+ other classes)

Thread is only here to preempt nerfs/ class changes so that none of you decided to pidgeonhole yourselves.

Possible nerfs that MIGHT happen:

Cindercoat fire cost reduction dropped to 20% cap.

Mask of Jeram pet damage reduced to 35% - 40% range.

Starmetal Kukri has a reduced chance to proc or cooldown reduction limit per minute.

Lut Socks limited to 2 leaps instead of 3.

Earthquake set being 5-6 piece requirement for earthquake on leap instead of 4.

Pride's fall no longer applying reduction to discipline costs.

Complete removal of all snapshots on pets and channels.

Complete removal of -cost reduction from legacy items.

Note that I'm not actively pushing for them to take place. But there's a pretty good chance any of these might be implemented and you guys need to be aware that if these happen you should always have a number of backup plans/ builds to continue playing.

lol, bringing attention to op items, but not wanting them nerfed, GG :P

I see a bunch of posts saying BOP is already "stelth nerfed" at 2+ the casted enemy....

Leave my Nubtro boots alone!!!

The pets thing I can see happening though, maybe even capping CD at 250% or something

Removal of cost reduction from legacy items, no way. New players wont be getting them, I cant see them removing them, if they won't change legacy nats, the rest should be fine.

You left out harrington belt :P

6 Hatred cost for cluster arrow that does 70m damage.

You sure? lol.

Harrington's wont get nerfed because it's bonus is subjective. It's ideal for channels and ideal for maps with a crapton of chests but it can very easily be traded off for other belts. (wtb sash of knives)

quoting myself from another thread

"Sadly this is the post-wow era diablo game designing philosophy.

I can foresee these changes incoming
1, Leap/earthquake less powerful.
2, Harrington Waistguard only triggered by chest, not by corpse/weapon racks/stones.
3, Raekor’s set buff."

If they nerf EQ for barbs I don't see any other T6 efficient builds other than fire HOTA.

FUN.

Exactly. Then everyone will realize how stupidly dumb barbs are and then we get SKILL BUFFS to spenders/ stomp/ WW/ etc.

This problem stems from the sad fact that people can't read threads before they post.

No I read it. There are so many nerf threads it's clear you've been trained to think nerfs are coming.

I play with a WD who downs T3 rift bosses in ~8-10 seconds. It makes the game great fun for me being alongside that, but I'm sure someone somewhere in the world is calling the nerf squad over it champ.

it was WD's hitting for 1.5b, not barbs.
And of course you don't have a 70 barb. Typical.
