Yesterday I absolutely noticed the drop in monster damage. I was loving it.
I did 20+ key runs yesterday, and I didnt have a pet die the entire time.
I was totally creaming the monsters in mp6 all day like butter.
This morning I noticed I was having more trouble.
However, and hour and a half ago I log back in and discover that I can barely do mp6 anymore.
Yesteray, I was annoyed by reflect damage, but I never worried about it. Sometimes I would stop bears for a second and cast toads because it didnt hurt as bad, but that's about it. I certainly never ran from them, lol.
Today, I am doing everything I can to avoid reflect damage because after casting a couple bears and I am DEAD, lights out. YEsterday I could easily spam most of a mana pool worth of bears before I said ok thats enough for a second.
Also, as I mentioned, my pets are dying today, and they werent yesterday. YEs, this simply cannot be ignored. My pets are dying all the time now, when yesterday they were practically invincible.
Before the MP damage reduction hotfix on the 23rd, I was doin MUCH BETTER than I am now.
I know its wierd, and I know it sounds like BS, but its true. EVery word of what I have said is true.
I have no clue why. I am hoping I am not alone in this.
Everything hurts way more than it should. period.
