Wizards were nerfed again and again before I finally quit. I think that was 1.0.5, maybe 1.0.6. Here are all the build breaking nerfs I had gone through as a Wizard:

- Living Lightning + Critical Mass, they nerfed crit procs for lightning
- Energy (Arcane?) Shield, they made it so that it could no longer tank 3 hits
- Attack/Cast Speed, they nerfed this by a whopping 50%!!!
- Tornado Crit Procs, they nerfed this by a whopping 50% (too stupid to do it any other way I suppose)
- Freeze Nova, made a lot more ineffectual with CC changes

Maybe they finally got around with NOT kicking the wizard can around the block after I left, but before that, they made my D3 Wizard's life absolutely miserable!

I didn't play a wizard, but I remember in the first 2 months of the game they were REDICULOUSLY strong and they got nerfed a lot. I'm not sure when the nerfs you listed happened, but while I was still around, they needed the nerfs to bring them down to the point where Wizards were not the ONLY class.

Sorry but I just don't agree with this at all. At launch, it was the Demon Hunter that was ridiculously strong. Then it was the Monk until they just flat out disabled a spell. Then it was Monk again with Serenity. After that it was a race between Ballerina Barbarians, Tempest Rush Monks, and CM Freeze Wizards, but ONLY Wizards got hit with nerfs the next 2 patches. That was when I finally said "Enough is enough!" and quit.

Sounds more like you Liked the AH a little to much and geared for just that... New patch and No AH is a lot diff bash it all you want but 2.7 m people can't be wrong And I am having tons of fun with them

To be honest I would think 2.7 million to be a small number for a blizzard title.

Self found was almost impossible early in the game hence the huge backlash about drop rates. People were increasingly pigeon holed into using the AH in order to proceed without feel like you were head butting a wall. AH would have been OK if drop rates were not so obviously tweaked towards it. It became a running gag that you were always hoping for that random drop to make you a millionaire so you can FINALLY gear yourself appropriately. 90% the stuff you were able to find that were decent usually wasn't even right for your toon because of how stupidly crappy itemization was. I haven't played since 1.0.6 or 1.0.7 so maybe it is finally worth playing.

Also, it is NOT A FACT that the game is good. That is simply your opinion, though I am genuinely happy that you are enjoying the game. Unfortunately, I was looking for something that was a REAL successor to D2 which PoE thankfully proved to be.
