The new system will eliminate this and account for only the MF you are wearing. So it won't matter who joins your group and what MF gear they are wearing
The changes overall allow for better geared/skilled players to carry more dead weight in their group

Also remember they are changing MF in this patch as well. They're basically nerfing it. You won't be able to gear swap to MF gear before kills. The method for eliminating the gear swap is not yet set in stone, however.

They're not fixing the core problem which is that you can get ridiculously low stat rolls on high-level items. About two weeks ago I just ID'd a set of ilvl63 Archon Faulds - they rolled 12 All Resist, ~40 Str and Int (a useless combo with uselessly low numbers), and ~1800 extra health from health globes. Those are rolls that you get excited about at level ~35. The minimum rolls on higher level items are just too damn low. Just yesterday I found a sword with ~550DPS, ~120 Dex, ~50Vit, which was all very hopeful until I looked at the Life on Hit roll and found out that it was 54 - a tenth of what it would need to even approach being useful. I don't mind that you can roll some goofy affixes like Str and Int on a Demon Hunter crossbow, but insultingly low affixes are just galling. If they'd just raise the minimum rolls on high level gear I would be happy. Instead they're raising the damage range on ilvl61/62 items. Which isn't a bad thing on its own, but far from the core of the problem I'd say. I'm not one of the people that wants tons more loot or essentially set affixes so all their gear is "useful" - that would break the economy and completely eliminate the need to farm for gear. But having just disturbingly bad high-level items really takes a lot of the fun out of searching for stuff. At least if I find a hand crossbow with ~150 Str I could shrug it off and think "bad combo, ah well". But with the current system you not only get bad combos, but insultingly low ones as well. There was a simple text chart that showed the problem rather nicely, I'll try to replicate it here:

ilvl 50 item stat variance [ |-------|------------- ]
ilvl 59 item stat variance [ ---|------|----------- ]
ilvl 60 item stat variance [ -----|-------|-------- ]
ilvl 63 item stat variance [ |--------------------| ]

As you can see the maximum rolls could yield the best of the best gear - but you could also roll some disturbingly low numbers. Upping the bottom end of the variance would help immensely in rewarding players for gear hunting. Not all of it would be upgrades or even really serious AH material, but at least you wouldn't find a slap in the face a third of the time.

On a side note, I did get lucky a few days ago. I actually found a decent weapon upgrade as a drop: ~780 DPS, ~90 Dex/Vit, 900+ Life on Hit (!) and a socket. My jaw dropped when I ID'd that monster. I have no idea what it's worth, but it's just too big an upgrade for me to let go of right now.

They've made so many drastic changes with this game post-launch they should be ashamed. They make one change, then go back on it, then make another. They treated it like a MMO when it wasn't. The game should not of got these major changes after launch, it should of been ready to go at launch with some minor balancing later on, then PVP shortly after.

They pretty much gave up completely with the whole "inferno is hard" concept in 1.0.4. It will be like D2 now, where if you are geared everything is very easy. That's how it should of been to begin with, the fun part is getting the gear and being able to destroy once hard monsters. I'm glad they finally see what Diablo was about (not sure how they missed the ballpark by so much to begin with though).

With GW2, Borderlands 2, etc... I really don't see myself playing again until an expansion. I found myself saying "Oh.. it's THIS part again" during every part of the game. I could replay Diablo 2 for years without dreading certain parts of the game.

The invulnerable minions fix will be removed? Lame.

That was the challenge for me as an Inferno Barbarian. I prided myself on killing an entire pack as a tank. Now it's just... lame... >_>

D3 is a solid game... if you liked D2 at all, i find it hard to believe you wouldn't like this one. Outside of the bandwagoneers who hate on things simply because "their" community is hating on it, its hard to dislike an updated version of D2

Same here with my DH. I mean honestly, who thinks getting 1-2 shot is even fun when half the elites have chains or stupid molten fireballs and are able to attack while they shoot them at you?

Might give this a go now. Been playing DAYZ!
