The only time I ever die in game is from rubber-banding with the ever-angering and bugged build of TR monk, and all other times, it is from fallen maniacs...
Let me get this straight......
Im running with 7k armor, 50k+ life, 700 AR, etc with a monk. You mean to tell me, you made a monster that runs at you a million miles an hour and explodes instantly when it reaches you? My god worst idea ever.
Not everyone can come in game and shoot arrows or lasers or fire balls at them at a distance.
What about the close combat toons like monk and barb that have no choice but to sit there and explode instantly like a runt, to put it nicely.
Even with so much protection, all it takes is ONE or TWO maniacs to destroy you. and you only have a split second to kill them.
Reduce their damage or increase their explosion delay more. That simple.
