Diablo® III

Can someone please explain locust swarm.

PSH Piss me off?! No way it's game it's supposed to be fun...and running by chests without opening is a crime in my book! That's like leaving Christmas presents wrapped lol.

just fyi I believe locusts received a small ninja buff in 1.07. it seems that when I hit the locust button it will always fire now, where as before if I was pressing other buttons at the same time or if my wd was still in the middle of another attack animation when I pressed locust button he would often not cast locusts at all.

Hmmm so LS doesn't take up an "attack turn" now? That certainly opens up some new possibilities, as I always love attacks that keep attacking while I can do something else (hence Spiders), plus if the mana regen is good enough, I can swap out another passive.

It works really really well if you actually take the time to learn the nuances. I'd be happy to show you in game any time, just add me.


Brahm or Chuck:
If you guys are running LS with a Bear spec still, add me in game. I am always open to check out and test new ideas, and would love to see and have the nuances explained. I can see it being great against large mobs of weaker enemies, but how does it fare against small groups of high health enemies, like Elites? Would casting Bears again give you more damage in the window of time you spent casting Locust? EddardStark#1833.

it still takes up an attack turn but I feel like now it reserves its spot in line instead of just canceling when other stuff was still going on.

I tweeked my farming build yesterday as I did at least 30 gohm runs for the new plans. Im using devouring swarm mainly for the mana and I can do mp7 at the speed I used to do mp1

I love LS, but I don't use it

1. Can't justify removing another better spell (for me) from my bar
2. Crappy LoH (only when it jumps, not when it ticks).
