Diablo® III

Looks like Blizzard is changing set bonuses

After the latest website upgrade, someone pointed on the Demon hunter forum that the tooltip for the 2pc Natalya's set is gone, 3pc & 4pc Blackthorne's gone, 3pc IK gone, 2pc 3pc and some of 4pc Tal Raha's gone and the 3pc Inna's is also gone.
Now this could be great if you main a Wizard or Monk but if you use a Demon hunter the 2pc bonus is the cornerstone of most demon hunter builds. Overall I see changing up the bonuses of some of the sets as a step in the right direction.

Yeah Im really hoping for a fix of the 2 pc set bonus of Tal Rash set to be something useful rather than the crap it is now which is completely worthless for a wiz and wd.

Well if the 2pc set of Tal Rash was say 130 int instead of 3% more fire dmg you would indeed get a nice size buff. For me I'm looking at getting a 9k buff if bliz goes that route.

Nat's set getting nerfed. 7.0% crit wow. Hopefully the crummy tal set gets a buff.

Yeah, confirmed. The bonuses have disappeared/been removed.

Do you guys think they'll be hotfixing these bonuses right away?

That might be a huge QQ wave if they nerf the Nat set 2pc bonus...

Same for Inna's Radiance

Yeah they are defiantly not buffing Nat's set bonus so its going to be a nerf. I think the reason they may be doing this is because a lot of wiz run nats 2 pc for the cc bonus, and perhaps bliz doesnt want wiz's doing that. Honestly they should just leave it a lone.

Check my profile, set bonus not there. I have not checked in-game yet.

Man.....there goes a few hundred mill down the drain if they take away my crit bonus.

I'm probably sounding like a baby on this, but I just came back to this game from a 3 month break and spent EVERYTHING I had, including $40 I had in my bliz RMAH on this build.

I understand the needs of a nerf occasionally, but this seems a bit much.

I hope, if they do nerf the CC, they replace it with something at least comparable for a DH.

I wouldn't be surprised if it goes to a more dh/monk specific stat. wizards using nat's set is kind of silly

I think the 7% crit chance should have been the 3 piece set bonus while the 130 dexterity should be the 2 set bonus.

That or have it first be 20 discipline, 130 dex, and then the 7% crit chance.

I wonder if they will change pre existing items or make a whole new tier of legendary/set items so that we have the legacy... *this present tier*... and then the new legendary/set items.

I really hope they will look into their legendary/set items and make this system work as it's broken right now.

Changing current gear retroactively would cause an outcry (unless it's a buff; which I can't see for nat's 2-set which is op), and the alternative is changing ALL the gear again so there are 2 sets of legacy items. Based on that this seems a bit hard to believe without more to go on.
