Electrify dealing more damage?

Just a heads up, I think electrify might be dealing more damage?

I am getting wrecked right now by some electrified quill beasts in Act 3 inferno. This is on softcore, but I am pretty decked-out, and normally I could just ignore that modifier. I can kill myself in less than 2 seconds just by attacking one of them, and they have fast, horde, electrify, and knockback. Not sure if there is a bug or weird interaction, but it has been a long time since I have fought a group of elites this deadly.

I don't think it necessarily does more damage, but you're just finding yourself in a position to get hit by all the sparks at once more often than usual. I noticed this a lot in act 2 with my barb. If I kept my distance a bit, it hurt a lot less than if I were to start off with a leap and try to hack them down while standing virtually right on top of them.

No, something was definitely up. Each bolt was wrecking me.

Yeah...

I reinstalled to see what ninja nerfs and buffs they did and the first elite I fought on what became face-roll A1 Inferno had the property. I worm holed out and town portaled.

I don't suspect it is just this elite property as I saw posts of many people that were 'farming A1/A2' saying they can tell it became harder.

The softcore forums are all abuzz about the ninja nerfs/buffs. Be careful out there, hardcore players, we dont find out about the actual nerfs/buffs until we die.

It seems like elemental damage is increased or now working as intended? Not just lig, but molten, plague, etc.

Update: Fought 3 packs of electrified mobs since that last one. They have been way easier, like I remember. Not sure what was up with those quill beasts.
