Diablo® III

Sever Nerf?

Sever: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/sever

Really? People use Sever to "exploit" lifesteal? Is this really being labeled an "exploit"? If using lifesteal with Sever is an exploit why can Sever roll lifesteal at all?

Is using Doombringer (http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/doombringer) an "exploit" because people who use it in conjunction with other legendaries have 70% or higher block?

I don't understand this. Unlike LoH or LS, you actually have to kill them before you get any health returned. The only redeeming part of using a garbage legendary like Sever as solely for it's lifesteal capabilities.

Where did Blizzard find it's developers? Stocking the shelves at the local Wal-Mart?

Thanks, it isnt a huge amount. I really didn't even notice it, so they want to reduce it? Kinda silly...

Edit: I just equiped one I found yesterday to see if the dps boost helped (non-ptr). The 22% additional damage to demons does destroy the trash mobs lightning fast.

I may have jumped the gun. When I read it I assumed they hit Sever with the nerf-bat pretty hard. I haven't been able to log in to the PTR. Hopefully it's still viable.

Unfortunetly, I cant test the difference as my ptr character was copied before I found one.
