They are tailoring to the elite population that has come up on top and already has the best gear, the most gold, etc. who have utilized the glitches/hacks/bots or whatever, now it will be next to impossible for people just starting out now to reach their level.

Please keep in mind that there are a boat load of hardcore characters that are/have progressed through inferno past Act II as it currently is. If they can do it without dying once, I'm sure that the general population could be dying a little bit less.

On my wizard I die quite a bit, but the barb is much easier to stay alive.

2b. dual/1h+shield gives you 2 items where you can now double the magic bonuses on them.
2c. a 1hander USUALLY has a higher attack speed, dual wield increases it even further, which equals faster spirit regen
a high enough dps 2hander COULD outperform a dualwield if it has a lot of magic stats AND you use the passive that increases spirit gain with a 2hander.

Thanks for the explanation smile.gif

Is your gear up to par with your level (same level)? Also, what skills are you using and what seems to be your main weaknesses?

Maybe, yes. Well, I was following this recommendation and as I've said earlier it was effective until Act2 Nightmare. I don't feel its effectiveness now. Any suggestion of a better build?

note: this is not the same speed as IAS, this is he base weapon speed
that's why i always get very surprised to see DH with a 2h cross bow, and i'm like WTH? redface.gif
LOL biggrin.gif
with a 2H BOW is very nice, but not many bows have good DPS
the arrows quiver on the off hand usually comes out with good IAS bonus rolls
but still a single 2H BOW even if it's doing 1000 DPS, it doesn't match 2x 1H cross bows at 800~900 DPS each
so the same idea applies to Monks and Barbs
now the downside of this is that you are all damage and not enough Armor / Defense for Inferno

I have the same notion as you have, I really think that dual wielding would be better because of the IAS that it offers. So yeah, thanks for the info smile.gif

I'm a 2h barb currently farming A2 inferno (damn you belial!). The damage is really great because most barb instant attacks are main hand only, so if you're dual wielding, you lose out on the instant damage from the offhand. I have seen some really cool DW whirlwind builds with 2x LOH weapons, but 1H LOH weps get REALLY expensive, especially at acceptable dps levels. I think I saw somewhere that you were a monk though, and all the good monks I run with are currently running 1h/shield, as it seems to be the best survivability for the buck right now.

Also as a side note, if a cookie cutter build doesn't feel effective, you're most likely either: 1) undergeared for your difficulty, or 2) playing it the wrong way. Certain builds require different play styles, but you can get away with playing it wrong at the lower difficulties because it is just easier. I'd advise you to just play around with different builds until you find something that fits the way you want to play the game. It took me ages to finally grow the stones to try running 2H on my barb, and it has made the game SO much more fun than when I was strict sword/board.

Official patch notes here, btw.

They also changed the IAS/ASI/AIS to effect weapons as well ~ Only quivers remain un-touched.

Looking at these crafting nerfs again is starting to annoy me. Why the hell are we not getting refunded for all the stuff we crafted and the training we did before the patch announcements? I feel like I have been robbed millions of gold now... frown.gif
