    Patch 2.3.1 on the PTR made a lot of changes, especially to the Witch Doctor. Much discussion of that class, plus Reflects Damage changes, Kanai's Cube tweaks, Paragon 2000 is broken, and more. Featuring Xanth, Empty1, and Flux.

    Diablo 3 Podcast #184: Patch 2.3.1 & Witch Doctors

    • 4:00 -- Witch doctor patch 2.3.1 testing on the PTR and instant power leap (not creep) via kanai's cube. Testing new and improved WD sets. Both guests have been testing WDs, so intensive coverage of the class (for once).
    • 20:00 -- Monk and Crusader new v2.3 set testing, and WD pet set testing.
    • 31:30 -- Reflects Damage tweaked in new patch. Working decently now?
    • 35:00 -- Kanai's Cube convert set item recipe tweaked. Laziest fix possible, but effective?
    • 39:00 -- Paragon Level requirements to enter public games on T7 or higher. Approve?
    • 44:00 -- Rift progress tweaked in this patch. Rifts still feel sluggish and Guardians still feel pointlessly weak?
    • 46:40 -- Paragon 2000 reveals flaws in the system. Too easy to get higher than P800, and too much reward to mainstat? Multiplayer is too big an advantage over SP, especially in terms of EXP?
    • 1:01:30 -- Drug testing for esports "athletes". Only an issue since the performance-enhancing isn't that big an enhancement?
    • 1:09:00 -- Gamescom coming soon. Diablo 3 expansion 2 will debut at the pre-show press conference, just as RoS did at Gamescom 2 years ago?

    Re: e-sports and doping. I heard a couple arguments (can't remember who exactly was talking) that were just plain nonsensical. "Drugs don't help.* and "Even if drugs did help, who cares because everyone would use them." Ok gents. Seriously?

    Podcast RSS has been broken for some time (for Doggcatcher at least).

    Is this un-escaped HTML tag?

    Ah OK.


    Doggcatcher's search seems to link to the wrong feed, but adding:


    http://www.diabloii.net/news/diii-net/diablo-3-podcast/feed


    manually works.

    I just want to say that Empty1 was a really good guest, he should be regular like N3rdwards and Xanth, really awesome opinions. He knows what he was talking about and had pretty good insights as well.
    I´ve enjoyed this episode in particular very much, listened to it twice :)

    Thanks!

    Haven't gotten the name in the introduction and although disagreeing to some opinions voiced (, especially D3 being an ARPG and, consequently, being the King of the ARPG genre ;) ), I have to concur. Would love to hear (and/or read) more from him.
