Diablo® III

IAS Dropped more than 50% on some items.

As the title states.

I had 3 items that gave me 31% IAS;
1) Boj Anglers --- 12% before, now gives 5%
2) Rare Ring ----- 4% before, now gives 2%
3) Rare Gloves --- 15% before, now gives 7%

For #1, I honestly don't know what happened, but for #2 and #3, I believe that they used a "Cut in half and round down" change... I think they should have left it at a cut of 50% max, since a cut any higher than what they had stated would obviously cause an outburst of anger. That makes me believe that they should have done it "50% rounded up", that way 50% would be the max it would drop. (I still think that 50% is still too much of a drop though). As a basis on this thought, I had 31% IAS before and I now have 14%. Half of 31% is 15.5%, therefore people will complain about it.

As for my Boj Anglers, I honestly don't know why they dropped more than 50% rounded down. Was this intended?

Me too, I had a ilvl 63 weapon with 15% ias now it only has 5%. I think someone at Blizzard should invest in some kind of adding machine... calculator I believe they are called?

Also I heard nobody at Blizzard reads this forum... which makes me wonder why they have it.. but oh well just trying to do my part to help test this beta.

Me too, seems like attack speed with odd number will have this kind of problem.

Well... My boots dropped from 12% to 5%, which is more than 50% rounded down. It isn't just limited to odd numbers.

half of 15 is 7.5, rounded down (which would be wrong) is still 7%
7 is still 2 more than 5 last time I asked a 1st grader.

Yea... It is rather odd how yours dropped to 33% of what it had.

Here is what their post on the patch notes said;


+ Attack Speed bonus values on weapons and armor have been reduced by 50%

Yes! I bought a weapon from AH for 2.5mill (countless hours of normal gameplay without exploits to get that gold) It had 25% IAS and now it is 10%
