Diablo 3 Podcast #167: Crusader & Massive Barb Buffs
1:30 — Katniss’ recent Crusader ill-fortune. N3rdwards exults over the Wizard’s Slow Time set now working nicely. 10:00 — Buffs to Crusader set. Can Roland’s outperform Akkhan’s when the patch goes live? 19:00 — What’s going on with the massive buffs to the Barbarian’s Immortal King set? 27:00 — Amazing new Legendary Rings and LGems are making the RoRG/SoJ/Unity trifecta optional? 32:00 — All the patches and game improvements are a clever scheme to build player satisfaction and excitement for another expansion pack? 37:00 — Faster Rifts on the PTR due to Purple Orbs and instant Rift closure… why bugs? Everyone loves those features. 40:00 — No Pylons in Rifts was a bug, but should it come back as a feature? Make GRifts pure skill rather than Shrine fishing? What’s with the super-easy Josh Mosqueira Rift guardian? 48:00 — Season Two ending “soon.” Surprised how soon Blizzard announced that? Is Season Two dead already? 51:00 — Blood Shard cap increased via completing higher Greater Rifts? Like or dislike? 55:00 — Blizzcon 2015 date announced, one week after Halloween. Good timing? Making plans already? 57:00 — Diablo 3 expansion will be announced… before Blizzcon? 1:03:00 — Why all not-want sets have “thorns” in the title. Plus, “moo!”
