Diablo® III

So about smoke screen.

Uhm. Thanks for the ability to not die for roughly 30 seconds.

Smoke screen is the only reason I will never drop Preparation out of my build.

You can also use it along with rain opf vengeance to put it straight in the middle of a ton of mobs and the escape and kite!

If you put the extended timer with it you pretty much become a battle reviver since you cant get interrupted. Simply amazing to do in boss fights with groups anyway.

I bet this is one of the first things to get nerfed. Being completely invulnerable to damage (including AoE) for an extended period of time is insane. Combining this with preparation and the ability to gain discipline from health orbs is unstoppable...at least on nightmare so far.

If they were going to nerf it, I'd see it getting a cd. Monks get the same thing with serenity (which has a cd), and they rune it to do much better things than what smoke screen can do.

it drains a lot of discipline (without the rune) and isn't anywhere near 30 seconds. Also, mages have defensive abilities and mass offensive abilities (the one where they transform). DH is the squishiest of all classes. Without smoke screen they would not survive above normal and maybe nightmare. They might change it around when pvp comes - but otherwise i think it is fine.

i think Blizz will eventualy nerf this skill (perhaps increased its cool down), but will improve the other skills.

i for one am hoping they would decrease the cool down of Rain of Vengeance

Try killing a Mortar + Invulnerable Minions + Teleporter champion pack without those precious 30 seconds. It's not pretty.
