If they nerf life steal etc, they can add "250 armour for 5 seconds on attack - can stack up to 10 times" or something to that effect. Even replace armour with all resist.

Think outside the box a bit.
You are crying for the Monk, but think what happens to a wd or wizard that can have half the LS of a Monk :)

Oh I can see the response to that.

WD and Wizards are RANGED!!! They don't even NEED life steal, haha.

But yeah I think a LS nerf would hurt WD/Wizard more than monk.

Try to be ranged in fields of misery at MP10...

The only viable builds for any ranged class is a melee build, ironic? :)
Nah.. how is it possible to nerf something that is only 0.20 effective from paper number? Nerf it any further will make it negative.
Laf...you got LS "nerf" coming out of that? You don't know what they are planning on doing it...this is pure speculation. Just b/c Whyett Cheng things it needs to be "reworked" doesn't mean anything...lets wait and see official notes down the road shall we?
typical bs by blizzard devs.

don't know what to do, nerf instead

screw you cheng!

I'm surprised that they still haven't realized the fact that players hate nerfs.

Are you serious. To have any sort of respectable damage you need to avoid res on certain gears as a monk. With a nerf to LS that will no longer be possible and force drastic cuts to DPS.


If they cut LS in half, it might force you to change combination strike for resolve.

I was playing fairly comfortably with 3% LS on MP10 on my 200k monk, and that would be like using 2 LS weapons after the nerf.

But an Archon wizard or a CoB wd is seriously affected, and would play with max 1.5 (after nerf).

The sad thing is barbs would just use the passive they are not using anymore because they don't need it now, and they are done with it.
Nerf Barb first
WOW, this really makes me wan't to quit this game. With this nerf Barb will be an even more "attractive" class to play. Since you can have LS in both weapons, belts and passive.
I don't even understand with all the things that can be fixed, Life Steal is even being talked about. I'm starting to wonder if Wyatt even knows what he is doing at all, because I cannot remember the last time that guy said anything productive.
LS is grossly overpowered, dunno how anyone can disagree with that and is one of the bigger flaws with the game, not sure how anyone can argue that. I have to see the actual changes they suggest to determine if their fix makes sense though.

The fact people are complaining about this just shows how clueless a large portion of the player base is on how this game works.

LS is not overpowered but it is crucial.

Why? Because monsters two hit people with 50k health and 600 resists.

There is no other way to heal 50k health in a second or two.

So what is the problem? Life steal of monster damage?

So does 3% life steal cut it for a barb or really any class doing say 100k damage ? yes or no?
