We’ve been listening to your feedback, and we agree it’s weird for different Rubies to function differently, especially if it’s hard to tell the difference. Based on this, we’ve decided that going forward, all Rubies will use the new calculation, and we’ll be buffing all Rubies to account for the difference in calculation. We’re still in the process of evaluating what we want the final numbers to be for patch 1.0.7 once it goes live, but our design philosophy remains that some but not all builds should prefer using Rubies in the weapon slot.
The whole point of a PTR is to test things out, and we appreciate all the feedback so many of you have taken the time to write up. At the start of the PTR, Marquise Rubies were definitely looking stronger than we wanted initially, and as a result of the new calculation, we’ll likely have to further refine them so that we can get them to where we’d like Marquise Rubies to be.
Honestly, what on earth is wrong with the rubies you guys had originally? they were just fine.
There was no need to nerf this, instead you guys should have been smarter and BUFFED THE OTHER GEMS.
110% crit for a 60m green gem? what the hell is the point of that. Buff that to be on PAR WITH THE RUBY.
Don't take away the power that was bestowed at the beginning. I was loving to build towards fast ASP and high white damage numbers. Now i'm going to have to go back to using a slow and stupid manticore...
STOP NERFING and START BUFFING INSTEAD.
Keep the rubies like they were in the first PTR build, just make the marquise emeralds more power, 10% crit damage buff for 60m is the dumbest thing i've ever heard. BUFF IT AND MAKE IT ON PAR WITH THE OVERPOWERED RUBIES.
Why doesn't blizzard understand that PLAYERS should be ultimately deciding what to build. Now you are telling us that emeralds are still the way to go obviously. This is a huge nerf to rubies and throws out all the theory crafting made in PTR as far as builds go.
Stop making stupid decisions blizzard, your act is getting old
