    Soon, you’ll never have to do this again.

    On the newest installment of the Diablo Podcast we discussed all of the top (and bottom) Wizard skills, and the recent/ongoing Wizard bug fixes on the PTR. During the chat, N3rdwards brought up the fact that the bug to Energy Twister had apparently only been fixed in the tooltip, since it was still just as OP as ever on the PTR.

    Other people have noticed the same issue, including (thankfully) Blizzard.

    We actually do have a pending Energy Twister/Twisted Sword change coming. We have identified an issue that was preventing the cap of 8 Twisters on Twisted Sword from taking effect. TLDR; The change to Twisted Sword in 2.4.1 to a cap of 8 never really stuck.

    We’re going to give this bug fix a run for the next PTR patch. If we find Energy Twister is still over-performing, we may continue to tweak and adjust numbers as needed. We know how important this topic is to the community, and we’re keeping our ears to the ground throughout the 2.4.2 PTR process for your feedback!

    The key aspect to our ongoing series of Top 10 Skill podcasts is that we are ranking the skills by their fun, potential, clever design etc. We are definitely NOT ranking them by current power in the game. That would be a very boring conversation, and would be totally subject to change in every new patch.

    That said, Energy Twister didn’t appear in N3rdward’s top ten, or Cpt. Goldfish’s top five, and I don’t think it even made it into our honorable or dishonorable mentions. It’s a powerful skill currently, thanks mostly to a bug, and tons of players main in it, but no one actually likes or enjoys it. Wizards are just forced to use it since it’s powerful and everyone else uses it. Like Facebook, or Donald Trump news.
