Nevalistis on the Diablo forums brought about a post on the future of the Firebirds set as well as a bug surrounding it. But plans to fix said bug wouldn’t happen until after this season.
Firebirds Finery has been the focus of a lot of community discussion since the launch of Patch 2.4.1. As the patch and current Season settle in, we want to take a moment to share development insight on what’s coming for this powerful class set in the future.
Firebird’s Finery has come a long way since its original implementation. We’re really happy with its theme. It’s the Fire set for Wizards and puts you in a place where you can burninate all the things. That’s awesome, we like that, and we want to preserve that feeling. On the other hand, we’re not happy with the bugs we’ve encountered and it’s become clear we need to take a new approach. We’re working on a fix that will be introduced in a future patch.
So, what does that mean for Season 6? There are a lot of players who have pushed hard and reached high ranks with these unintended bugs. However, we don’t want to punish players for working within the parameters given to them. To that end, the current functionality will remain intact for the duration of Season 6. Once these bugs have been resolved, you can expect that the power level of Firebird’s will be much more in line with other sets.
Afterwards later on someone asked if action would be taken for players utilizing this bug.
Well enjoy it while it lasts. Let’s see what nerfs and or power creeps we get after this. Maybe raise the damage of the other sets or just balance it all out.
Update: The said bug was with the 6 piece bonus from Firebirds. There’s a Youtube video on how it works.
