  1. Nerf to monk’s static charge, nerf to thorns (really?), nerf to death wish. Grrr, hopefully they’ll find a better middle point from increase and decreasing stats.

  2. Why every patch Crusader is always nerfed,and when the season starts, he is the biggest shit of all classes? One build like Invoker was doing ok now in PTR, and they immediately nurfed it to the point of useless joke. Crusader Roland/Akkhan = shit. Phalanx biggest joke ever, Invoker is shit already only Seeker is okish. Stupid Monk will be godlike again.

  3. "Crusader was doing okay?" They were hitting 7 more GRifts than anyone else, more than 10+ Doctors and Wizards.

  4. All changes seem fair enough. As many people have suggested, it looks like Blizz is trying to set GR80 as the mark for most sets, so they're toning down some of the overperforming sets. They're also toning down some of the specific legendaries to bring down some particular LoN builds.

  5. Yea sure 7 more GR than anyone else,but in PTR. When the new patch begins will be 7 less than anyone else. Thats the “tiny” difference. I think someone from Blizzard hate crusaders and this is obvious. There is no other class with only one playable set atm( Seeker).Thorns is in the history already.Four sets,3 useless and 1 is so so. Awesome job.

  6. There won’t be – GR ranking was resseted yesterday when hotfix patch was applied and here are results as now :

    Barb – 83
    crusader – 82
    dh – 82
    monk – 83
    wd – 79
    wizard – 83

    Wd imo need little buff and everyone is almost on same lvl. Before that wizard and crusader was 5-6 GR higher then other classes.

  7. “WAaaaaaaaa…the class I prefer to play is no longer absolutely destroying every single other class on all aspects of gameplay now…I QUIT” <—- DH, Barb and Monk players.

  8. I wasn’t a part of the PTR before or after they nerfed the builds, so I don’t really know if it was called for or not. But that thorns set had better perform. That’s all I have to say.
