a. it did reduce damage which was great
b. barbs do have a 5:1 advantage vs wd
-almost all skills were useless since you are already dead
-drain and run kite skills were helpful like haunt because i had to get off the screen
c. critical is way over powered. 1 crit = death
-i have -30%+ reduce damage against elities, -15% damage passive, -20% damge passive, shield with 32% block = death death death.
1-30 kill ratio.
that was not the fun i had envisioned during beta! the beta videos looked more fun than whatever i just experienced. i tend to feel this game should of been critical hits 3 instead of diablo 3.
fyi I dont have 250+ crit or the ultimate gear build. but i have an utlimate defense build which is completely useless against critical hits.
i never imagined a year ago how completely important and stupid IAS and Crit would be. I thought this game would be of skill but it has become a bummer.
