    Wizard set looks interesting synergized with the helm and bracers. Looks like mirrorball and gesture of Orpheus might make a comeback?

    I'd agree if the set worked with anything but the three worst Wizard skills in game. Even letting it work with all signature spells (electrocute) would be a massive improvement.

    I am pretty sure it is going to get used with FO.

    I didn't pay for the stream this year so I'm not sure, but I'll ask here. None of the fan sites have mentioned Blizzard saying anything about class balance / build diversity. Has that come up at all?

    I mean...artifact legs are kinda interesting but not if everything (for wizards for example) is fire or GTFO... Yes a few new sets but that doesn't fully address the issue.

    It seems to me they are going to try and solve some build diversity with new sets. WW/Rend for Barbs, Slow time/FO for Wiz, Multishot DH. Without seeing this first hand I can't really comment on the effectiveness. But, from everything I have heard the DH was the most interesting.

    No comment on even unnerfing FO though. Because apparently decent T3 performance is not acceptable.

    Pretty sad about Diablo 3 at Blizzcon... I was sort of breaking, mixing in some hearthstone until Blizzcon. I was hoping for some exciting news. Instead of excitement I feel disappointed and worry about the direction of the game.

    Why is that sir?

    There are some things that encouraged me, like the new sets, but other things left unanswered. They added a new tile set, but one can only hope it doesn't lag like their last addition. The season only items suck balls IMO, but that WW ring..I am not sure if that is season only. If so, I might have to make a barb just for that purpose. Otherwise, I can do without seasons this go around.

    I was just hoping to hear of some more variety to gameplay, either more reason to do other acts/modes or new game modes. Its possible I just need to switch back to sc, I dunno, losing a unity (or templar token) could be some hundred hours lost. I don't feel I can spend that much time or I just am not motivated to do it enough.

    Also I'm concerned the ancient legendaries will break the reward loop pretty badly, and just make even worse storage issues. They said they won't do anything for that and it's a strike against hc again :(

    So I look at the ancient legs as circumstance of RNG. It might happen and if it does then great. If not, cool.

    HC is one of those anomalies. Sadly, they (Blizzard) does nothing to cater to HC. The second life passives are as good as it gets I think. I always keep a SC toon just for the sole purpose of not caring. Sad? More of less HC loss is going to happen. So when I don't want to care I hop on my SC toon for lawls. I die purposefully and play with complete recklessness. LOL

    At any rate, I do hope you come back to play. We need more good players like yourself to stick around!!
