Diablo® III

Multi/Suppression and Preparation/Punishment

This looks like an infinite Hatred loop that could put out some serious damage. Wonder if it'll be viable :)

Probably would work. Not sure how much better it would be than just volatile explosives.

The skill doesnt say you are invulnerable for 3sec etc... it stats you vanish into the shadows or what not, i would assume the moment you used another spell while this is in effect it would go away.

Then again it could possibly just be like a cloak of darkness type of ability, but in reverse from d2, though i highly doubt it,

Just tested it in Beta (patch 15) right now. You can attack during the 3 seconds of Cloak and demons still won't see you during that time.

Not sure how they plan to balance this. It seems you could have builds that give near perma-smoke screens.

So then its basically an immunity (excluding aoe / environment / projectiles)... I am curious if this works on bosses as well (act ones that is)

Also, they may be giving this move a CD or nerfing other skills disc regen if this is abused by someone.

I can't imagine attacking while invisible is working as intended.

Why not? Wizards can still attack while in Diamond Form, and Monks can still attack during Serenity and Inner Sanctuary.
