Not gonna lie

General Discussion
The new season theme looks pretty interesting. Looking forward to experimenting. The quality of life changes are also nice, though I’m still hoping they will add more.

But the number increase? Wtf?
If you are going to buff sets, don’t buff all of them, because there is no point to that now. Buff the ones who are not performing 10x better than the best. Don’t buff the best with it.

Here’s to hoping they change the number inflation, because this buff does not have the desired effect, and the numbers are looking ridiculous now.

Edit: or better yet, instead of only buffing, consider nerfing! Prevents the number inflation on sets AND grifts!
What exactly is interesting about it? That you can cube a CoE instead of a Rorg? Or that you can wear Focus/Restraint?
These are only bigger numbers, they change nothing o_O
They change the combinations of set items you can use.
Which is quite big for someone who wants to try stuff as Magic Missile wizard, Spectral Knife wizard and Pony crusader.
Probably gonna suck big time, but this theme actually affects gameplay!
Im excited too, looks cool.
Will be interesting to see what the new meta will be for multi-player as well as opening up some different builds. I wonder why they did not mention this at Blizzcon...

The top sets got minimal buffs of up to 400%. The under performing sets got the 1000% buffs. If you consider the increase to mob stats as Grift level increases the higher performing buffs don't amount to much more than a few more Grift levels. The under performing sets might be enough to bring more balance so everyone is not just using the top sets. People complain about power creep but the game has long ago passed the point where power creep even means anything. So people will be able to do a higher Grift each season. Does it really even matter at this point?
People just see big numbers and assume crazy power creep.
