With 1.03 being in a group wont cause more damage, and you'll be able to farm the best items from earlier acts.

This means we'll be able to go beast mode on even in groups, no more world of diablo.

Though I still think they need to address ancient spear and knockbacks on elites. If it doesn't work on them, why would I use them ever when we will lose the valor buff if switching to it?

If it works on it, you don't need it for it. If you need it for it, it doesn't work on it. The only kiting strategy that actually works for us is sprint tornados...

Ancient spear would be godlike if we could use it to get some uptime on a single enemy after knocking back the rest. But this strategy was pre-nerfed against enemies that drop loot.
Sooo, fix this kthx
