Iron Maiden in D3?

Posts: 160
Every time I've started a new RPG, I've always began some form of berserker style melee class; Barb, Warrior, etc.

My first char in D3 will most likely be a Frenzy barb. However, my decision is made difficult by the chilling memories of reaching Chaos Sanctuary in Nightmare mode, brutally tearing a bloody path through swarms and swarms of demons, and then getting 1-shot by Iron Maiden.

Hopefully, we've seen the last of that ridiculous curse, but if it does make it to D3, I hope they put some form of mitigating cap on it (ie, reflects 200% of damage dealt, up to 20% of the target's maximum health).

There was nothing quite like using your Level 93 Eth BotD WW Barb to rush a friend through nightmare, and getting creamed by a paltry level 38 mob (and maybe a little arrogance and carelessness).

The Monk has Mantra of Retribution, which reflects 40% of damage taken back.

Also, players are slated to have tons more health, so hopefully we won't have wildly disproportionate damage to our health like in D2.
