Diablo® III

Whirlwind Barbarian Nerfed in RoS!

It really makes no sense logically to remove one of the most played barb specs.... unless they really just want to hurt the players?

I quit the game when they fully nerfed increased attack speed(ias) on gear, some of my items went from 19% ias down to 8% and some had their ias removed entirely, which made my Demon Hunter 100% useless.

They are repeating the same mistake here, but honestly I think its blatant to hurt players.


Nope, it's an expansion.

They could literally remove all current skills and it still wouldn't be a nerf, it's a complete absolute overhaul.

No current builds or gear will survive to 70 and that's fantastic news.

WHy can't they ADD NEW STUFF without REMOVING THE OLD SPECS makes no sense.

Its not a nerf.

A nerf would be taking a %dmg or %crit minus, but they are 100% changing what the skills do.

NOT A NERF.

If you would read Diablofans.com you would see they are nerfing alot of the passives. Blood thirst is no longer lifesteal, Weapon master is getting nerfed, etc.

This is not a nerf....

They are simply removing one way to play barbarian. It is also among the most popular.


Exactly, bunch of short sighted people. Most likely they'll have some item that increases whirl wind movement speed.

The entire build of "WW barb" is level 60 thinking.

This entire concept of thinking at the current level cap is flawed.

There won't be WW barbs at 70. There will be entirely new builds which may or may not use the WW skill.

It's hard to understand, but a complete full overhaul is not a nerf.

Not only that but WotB doesn't even have a cooldown reduction rune anymore.

They may be moving cooldown reduction off runes entirely and putting them on gear.

Earthquake for example will have cooldown reduction per kill (On gear), WotB and CotA and other large cooldowns may get the same treatment.

Can't freaking wait for the new changes, this is going to be awesome!

Oh man, I hope that's legit...I can't imagine my barb having a giant Hoover strapped on his back and sucking all the trash / elites into his path....won't need the full range of movement speed while spinning when you're just vortexing continuously.

not a nerf? are you out of your gourd? WW has its movement speed reduced to 66% over the 100% it current is. Wrath of the berserker can no longer be kept up indefinitely by battle rage or any skill for that batter because the change to the skill....its a nerf if you can't keep wrath up without lowering the cooldown to 30 seconds its a total nerf......period....

Monks are faster pure runspeed wise - demonhunters can vault two times in a row until cooldown kicks in. Do you even play this game? Because you clearly have no idea whatsoever.[/quote]

I don't play tempest rush and the people who do obviously suck at monk. And all demon hunter have IS some decent speed to stay at range, which is fine. If you ever played multiplayer you would find it very annoying to play with whirldwind stupid barb who goes 3 screen farther. So before you comment crap, go learn to play a new barb build. Barb are still one of the best class, just won't be as brainless.
