We need hydras to cast Fire ball, no bolt. The change is unfair for a single target skill that requires level 30
Did they... did they just BUFF Holy Fire? That skill is already really ridiculous to play with on the PTR, it does NOT need a buff.
they nerfed holy fire a little bit and hydras synergyI feel like they don't even play their own game when I look at the hydra change rofl Holy fire was strong while leveling, falls off in hell, only gets super strong in late late endgame when you have aquired lots of high tier runes, you need a cham, 3x Lo and 3x Sur runes to farm cows as fast as it was now on ptr. At that point your character should be this strong, there is nothing left to farm for you anyway (In terms of character power)Fire skills are already weaker than others and suffer from immunities alot more than other elements, and now they get nerfed again.I tested hydra sorc alot on ptr and no matter what I did, Fireball/Meteor was just stronger. Had better AoE clear, and better single target aswell targeted AoE.I was hoping to play hydras as an alternative but its just not worth it, their AOE potential is too weak with 6 groups of hydras up. Now their synergy is getting nerfed back to *!@# 3%.Don't even bother trying it out on Live, not worth itthe hell even Blaze fully skilled is more fun and stronger than hydras.What a sad day to read d2 patchnotes.Why did I even bother giving mrllamasc a comprehensive review of my findings in his feedback survey. All the problems weren't even touched on and the stuff that wasn't great got nerfed on top.man, I hate this company sometimes. Way to ruin the fun and excitement for a big patch
so... those patch notes definitely read like holy fire is getting buffed right? am I misreading something there? is wowheads formatting screwy? what am I missing?because the dev notes definitely sound like they were implying it was nerfed.
So the patchnotes are better written on their site, because they have this whole stuff colour coded. That way it's kinda better to understand than whatever this article did.It's still pretty confusing, but a bit better.
