    Barb gets one shoted in video

    Was watching this female barb video

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cCh1sL-nfQ8&feature=channel_video_title

    If you jump to 7:15 you'll see a unique mob 'Uzay the Hellion' with the suffix 'Molten'. The barb take Uzay out without too much trouble but like 1-2 seconds after doing Uzay explodes and it one shots the barb! Not sure if this is from the Molten suffix or unique to the mob but if I was playing hardcore I could hve easily been caught off guard by it and died.

    hmmm. maybe I should do a few play throughs on softcore first.....

    I've seen the Frozen attribute do the same thing. They've been saying for literally years they were gonna be doing away with "one-shot kill" style difficulty.....

    I did see that earlier and it did not seem clear to me exactly what killed the barb.

    I guess the lesson is, don't stand next to the growing fiery ball of death. Especially if you are not at full health.

    If this had been hardcore, the barb would have deserved the death.

    Yeah I saw that. It's this fire ball that grows and then explodes after you kill the mob. Ice does the same thing. He stood there right next to it like a dope. It takes about 2 seconds to blow. This is good as there is no longer any issue of killing a FE monster and it suddenly gimping you on the last hit.

    To be fair, the barb was at half health when it exploded. :/

    She was at half life already, so not really a one-shot.

    I think the barbarian should have tried to attack from the edge to maintain a higher health pool. Using the run into the middle and get surrounded technique and the loot while there are still enemies attacking you is not a one hit kill. He is at half health so it is not a one shot.

    True but it takes normal mobs like 30 seconds of attacking to take off that much health.

    But yes your right, I guess it wasn't a one shot. Although all we now is it took at least half her health.

    Once i put the video up to 1080p then I could see the growing fire ball so I guess it's easy to avoid.

    I have watched a lot of Snarky's vids and while they are pretty to look at I would not consider him a "good" player. He is a bit slow and when I watch him I wonder if this is the type of player Jay speaks of when saying people had a hard time with things.

    I still say the balance is going to be bad, like in D2. 90% of monsters will be no threat at all, 9% will be somewhat dangerous, and 1% will kill you no matter what. We see the ground work being laid down as early as this beta. You could go afk and a lone zombie would have maybe done 10 dmg to you by the time you get back. But you lose half HP if you're anywhere near a Grotesque when it pops it's worms.

    Exactly the reason why I'll play softcore first.

    Get familiar with the game's mechanics, then own HC later :p

    if you can't avoid something like that you should die, its so telegraphed that after the first you should just know. if this is the kind of "casual" player they were trying to balance the game to bring in apparently they still made it to hard.

    I have ran in to a few yellow monsters that have killed me in 1-2 seconds, but this was not one of them. I was just playing carelessly and not paying attention, was paying more attention to the loot. As a barbarian you can soak up a lot of damage and I really didn't think it would kill me, so I did not bother to move. It takes a little while to get familiar with what monsters do what and what the different animations look like. Everyone has a different play style, I tend to not care if I soak up some extra damage, just because a player does not care to move away from an explosion does not make them bad:smug: these videos are not for showing off skills they are just to showcase the game.
    Also I'm sure in inferno difficulty something like this would certainly 1 shot you unless you are a tank.

    Something like that wouldn't be a challenge on inferno. The ones with 2 suffixes and 3 prefixes will be the real challenge.

    All of the elementally affixed uniques (and often their minions as well) will explode with their elemental damage after dying... so everyone should learn to stear clear of that now... also Synark seems to play like quite a noob in all of his videos...

    Edit: After watching the whole video, it seems like the barb is doing waaay more damage with her abilities than the other classes... taking that into account, it's even sadder that he died like that...

    Let's count the excuses:

    Judgment: Denied. You are bad!

    On a side note... anyone else notice that his gold collector companion was a giant centipede? o_O Good to know they aren't all chickens and snakes...

    Noticed this as well, the Barbarian seems to do much more damage than the other classes. Maybe it's just my imagenation though.
