and 2.11 will be released 3 weeks later to fix the rushed, bug riddled 2.1.


and then 2.12 will be release 2 weeks to fix bugs that 2.11 made trying to fix 2.1 and the other bugs missed for 2.11 to fix 2.1

"Fixed an issue that prevented the non-infinite DoT from dealing damage when the infinite DoT was already applied to another enemy"

Could that be talking about Firebird's?

Well there is that "Tavern Talk" thing scheduled for the 21st which is supposed to be them discussing the patch, so I doubt they are going to release 2.1 before then (although, you never know).

I'm going to call it now. 2.1 is going to be released on August 26th. Place your bets, ladies and gentlemen.

It is! That note seems a little confusing, I've added some clarity to it (may take a moment to appear in the patch notes).

Nev I would like to ask why Travis Day is allowed to multi-box 4 crusaders at one time?

Doesn't this affect leaderboards?

Anyone can multibox. If you want to pay for four separate accounts, go for it. You can have four different players running four wizards in a Greater Rift and you can have one player running four wizards in a Greater Rift.

Just be wary what program(s) you run while multiboxing.

The devs said in a stream a while ago that multi-boxing was okay as long as the player was directly responsible for everything that all of the characters did, aka no macros, no bots. Of course, things may have changed since that stream.

I'm gonna be impressed if travis day tops the sader leaderboards come 2.1.

If he manages to better than 4 actual players playing each character, I will be very surprised.

Just because they allow it doesn't mean they support it. It's been covered on the forum before.

Sure hope not. Looking at the numbers across wizard spenders already scream out problems for Arcane Orb. That doesn't even begin to tell the story of clunky and unrewarding it feels to hurl tickle-balls at enemies and get nothing in return.

And now you know why I deleted PTR from my computer after the RoS testing. All it did was create frustration and annoyance just like 2.1 etc is. It's better to let blizzard work out their OWN game by paying their OWN testers etc ....

Just play the open game and then scorn them for all the stuff ups about it once released.

It's far more amusing this way.

i think they decided to leave it as is, and just introduce a new legendary to accommodate the skill

If that's the case, I hope it's not a wand... still wanna do an EB/AOrbit build that isn't 90% EB damage.
