I love how Blizzard shares everything with us now! It's quite reassuring.

Blizz screws me over again. I just came back after months of not playing and bought a Wiz set yesterday. I get this news today. REALLY lame way to manage your game.

I know that. It's just unfortunate that this game is continually messing around with the stats. It leads to buyers remorse. I remember picking up LoH gear for my barb and a few days later it was nerfed into the ground, forcing people into Lifesteal.

So you are killing new builds coming out after 1.0.7. I guess all of us should go back to traditional WW/CM build. What's your solution to the diversity of wizard build?

Besides, would you fix other bugs as well? Projections like molter are directed straight to players within a slow time bubble. Their minimum range seems to disappear in the bubble. Please fix that too!!!!!

Seriously thank you very much for the warning. It is so rare that we get this kind of warning that I wanted to specifically thank blues for taking the time to warn us.

So to clarify: will this only affect APoC, or does it affect all "on crit" effects (ie CM)?

When 100% of the people posting about your new bug think it's fine the way it is, maybe you should consider leaving it. As it's more fun, not gamebreaking, and it's one of those steps in the right direction to revert most of what Jay did anyway.

Make the right call, and let us have some fun now and then instead of the slaving that currently happens.

bug: creates build diversity

"Sorry guys, too much diversity by accident. You can have it when we say it's needed again"

Pretty much this. Just undo most of what Jay did and that'll be the first step in the proper direction.

During the development of patch 1.0.7, a Wizard bug relating to Arcane Power on Crit was introduced when we fixed a bug that was causing Blizzard to not proc it at all.

The good news is, as of patch 1.0.7, Blizzard can now trigger Arcane Power on Crit! The bad news is, by fixing the bug with Blizzard, we introduced a new bug that was causing Archon: Disintegration Wave, Disintegrate, Energy Twister, Meteor, and Ray of Frost to trigger Arcane Power on Crit twice per proc rather than once per proc, resulting in a higher than normal proc rate. We plan on fixing this bug very soon, and wanted to give you a heads-up about it.


And yet even with my gear, even with the current doubled Apoc. 28 Apoc, 56% crit (buffed) It still isn't enough to maintain any decent meteor using apoc returns alone. Just a heads up, I had been enjoying the game again for a while, now the fix will give me an excuse to play something else. I love my meteor's any developer's feel the same way?

I don't agree at all.

Clearly with wizards there have been two dominants builds: CM/WW (and similar CM -based builds) and Continuous Archon. This bug has unintentionally strengthened the continuous Archon build, making other Wizard builds less competitive with the Archon build. So, logically, this bug discourages "build diversity."

Face it, this game needs more builds that are NOT dependent on frequent critical hits. Thus strengthening skills like Blizzard and Hydra should be the future.
