Important news regarding in-game clan membership! (Click to show)
To improve quality of our clan, we are imposing a requirement to PM your Diablo 3 in game battletag to Sainesk and lemans81 on the OCN website. New members will be required to have a minimum of 100 posts on the site. Members currently in the clan are exempt from the 100 posts rule. These details will be added to the original post to keep track of members and who on OCN is who in Diablo 3.

Latest Patch: 2.0.5 (Click to show)

GENERAL

    Increased the radius of "Strength in Numbers" (multiplayer buff) from 100 to 200 yards
    Gold Find on items will now stack multiplicatively with the Gold Find bonus provided from game difficulty
        This significantly increases the gold reward most players will see when playing on higher difficulty levels or wearing Gold Find gear.
        Example: Suppose you are playing on Master (+200% Gold Find) and have 50% Gold Find awarded from items. A pile of gold drops that would normally be 50 gold. Your Difficulty bonus increases the 50 gold to 150 gold. Your 50% Gold Find will now increase the 150 gold to 225 gold.
    The 300% Gold Find cap applied to items and Paragon Points has been removed
    The Vote Kick system has received several changes to make it less restrictive:
        Vote Kicking is now available after you have been in a game for 2 minutes (down from 5 minutes)
        Killing a champion or rare pack no longer disables vote kicking for 15 seconds
        After a boss kill, vote kicking is disabled for 15 seconds (down from 3 minutes)
        Some additional restrictions were also relaxed
        Known Issue: The tooltip will not reflect these changes
    Tyrael will now chat about his poor eating habits with less frequency

 

CLASSES

    Barbarian
        Philosophy
            To better support character builds based on a specific damage type we are changing the damage type of a few select runes. This is an ongoing goal - additional changes may be made in the future to any of our classes to make damage types an interesting consideration for character building.
            Rend is being changed to make the damage more consistent. The difference between getting a Critical Hit or not on Rend made the ability too unpredictable. This is particularly important when the player has the option of reapplying the Damage over Time effect.
            Finally, we are buffing the least used Fury spender - Seismic Slam. While there will always be a least used skill, we feel the aesthetic of Seismic Slam is very strong, and we would love for more people to enjoy using it. To this end we are making the skill mechanically easier to use as well as directly buffing the damage.
        Active Skills
            Frenzy
                Skill Rune - Sidearm
                    Damage type changed from Physical to Cold
            Overpower
                Skill Rune - Crushing Advance
                Damage type changed from Physical to Cold
            Rend
                Rather than rolling for a Critical Hit, Rend will now calculate an average damage augmented by your Critical Hit Chance and Critical Hit Damage on application and apply that damage evenly over the duration of the entire DoT
                    Note: Since the skill can no longer deal a Critical Hit, it will no longer trigger effects that occur on Critical Hit.
            Revenge
                Skill Rune - Best Served Cold
                    Damage type changed from Physical to Cold
            Seismic Slam
                Now also hits enemies in a 10 yard wide, 10 yard long area in front of you in addition to the existing cone
                Base weapon damage increase from 550% to 620%
                Altered the duration of the cast animation to be the same as most other Barbarian abilities.
                Removed the short knock up
                Will now ignore line of sight blockers (such as the walls created by the Waller monster affix) when dealing damage
                Skill Rune - Permafrost
                    Weapon damage increased from 710% to 755%
                    Slow duration reduced from 2 seconds to 1 second
                Skill Rune - Shattered Ground
                    Weapon damage increased from 710% to 735%
                    Changed the 5 yard knockback to a short knock up
                Skill Rune - Stagger
                    Has been redesigned: Now reduces the Fury cost from 30 to 22
            War Cry
                Range increased from 50 to 100 yards
            Whirlwind
                Skill Rune - Hurricane
                    Damage type changed from Physical to Cold
            Wrath of the Berserker
                Skill Rune - Arreat's Wail
                    Damage type changed from Physical to Fire
                Skill Rune - Striding Giant
                    Has been redesigned: Now reduces all damage taken by 50%
        Passive Skills
            Inspiring Presence
                Range increased from 50 to 100 yards
            Relentless
                Now has a buff icon when it's active
                The damage reduction provided will now be reflected in your Toughness

 

    Crusader
        Philosophy
            Crusaders should be the toughest class in the game and currently they are not. We've increased the 15% damage reduction to 30% to match that of the Monk and Barbarian. In addition we are removing the movement speed penalty on Heavenly Strength while also changing Fervor to be a very strong passive for Crusaders who want to play with a 1-handed weapon. Together these changes should solidify the Crusader fantasy of a powerful tank wielding a giant shield.
            To better support character builds based on a specific damage type we are changing the damage type of a few select runes. This is an ongoing goal - additional changes may be made in the future to any of our classes to make damage types an interesting consideration for character building.
            Akarat's Champion has been redesigned. Many of the runes were lackluster while Rally was both too strong but also promoted a style of play that consisted primarily of mashing buttons mindlessly. We've redesigned Rally and buffed the skill and all the other runes.
            Overall builds that used certain skills such as Judgment - Resolved could do solid damage (though somewhat inconsistent), but if you did not take specific skills or have access to specific Legendary items the damage would fall behind. We are nerfing Judgment - Resolved significantly. A change this large is never easy but this was a mistake we should have caught.
            To keep Crusader damage competitive we are buffing most of the Crusader's damage abilities across the board. While a few skills have come down slightly in damage, the vast majority are being increased, some by a large margin.
            Fist of the Heavens and Blessed Shield both fill a similar role of being ranged multi target skills. In order to provide better differentiation we are adjusting Fist of the Heavens to be better at damaging a single target, with the area damage component being a peripheral bonus. To this end the damage of the primary strike of Fist of the Heavens has been increased, while the damage of the secondary bolts has been decreased.
            Finally, we have done significant redesign to the Crusader's passive abilities. We feel there was an overall lack of interesting passive choices on the Crusader. Rather than try to simply change numbers on existing passives we've tried to provide interesting and compelling choices.

    Demon Hunter
        Philosophy
            Demon Hunter survivability is lower than we would like. While the Demon Hunter is not as tough as other classes, this can be frustrating when taken to an extreme. The change to the Awareness passive is a first step; we will be keeping an eye on this and making additional changes as needed in the future. The Marauder's Set bonuses are attractive, but often the pets would get in each other's way or Sentries would not use your spenders often enough. To help improve this set's functionality, Companions have received collision box revisions and the rate at which Sentries use your Hatred spenders has been increased.
        Active Skills
            Companion
                Companions's collision boxes should now more closely match their actual size, and allow them to more effectively surround enemies
            Grenade
                Will now more reliably explode when an enemy is near the thrown grenade
                Explosion radius increased from 5 to 6 yards
                Collision radius of the projectile has been significantly increased
                Will now explode closer to your click location if it did not explode before reaching it
                Max range increased from 45 to 75 yards
            Hungering Arrow
                Skill Rune - Devouring Arrow
                    Damage type changed from Physical to Cold
        Passive Skills
            Awareness
                Has been redesigned: Armor is now increased by 30% of your Dexterity

    Witch Doctor
        Philosophy
            To better support character builds based on a specific damage type we are changing the damage type of a few select runes. This is an ongoing goal - additional changes may be made in the future to any of our classes to make damage types an interesting consideration for character building.
            We are changing the way Fetish Sycophants works. Previously it triggered while casting. This caused it to create twice as many fetishes with certain skills such as Firebats (which trigger on-cast effects at double the normal rate), and also create fetishes even when there was no target available. We want to preserve the existing Fetish builds while allow Fetish Sycophants to be combined with all skills in the Witchdoctor arsenal. Fetish Sycophants now works with all skills and triggers on hit rather than on cast. While this means you can no longer get fetishes by simply casting at nothing, you will now get more fetishes if casting against large groups of enemies. In the case of spells other than Firebats, you will generally get more Fetishes than before. In the case of Firebats, you will get less Fetishes than before versus 1-3 targets, and more fetishes than before when facing groups of 5 or more.
            Haunt and Locust Swarm are being changed to make the damage more consistent. The difference between getting a Critical Hit or not made these abilities too unpredictable. This is particularly important when the player has the option of reapplying the Damage over Time effect.
            The Witchdoctor sometimes had trouble keeping up in a party situation. At the same time, we feel each class should feel unique. To this end we are redesigning Fierce Loyalty to improve the Witchdoctor's mobility in a uniquely Witchdoctor way.

    Wizard
        Philosophy
            To better support character builds based on a specific damage type we are changing the damage type of a few select runes. This is an ongoing goal - additional changes may be made in the future to any of our classes to make damage types an interesting consideration for character building.
            Wormhole is by far the most common rune choice on Teleport. While we like the functionality and frequency with which it allows you to cast Teleport, we do not like the frustration it sometimes produces: players are often left clicking wildly, feeling punished for misclicks, or increased frustration if you find yourself up against an obstacle that wastes your second and third Teleport. To improve this experience we are reducing the cooldown on Teleport to 11 seconds and changing Wormhole to only give one additional cast, but increasing the window of time you have to use your second Teleport to 3 seconds. This affords the same number of Teleport casts overall as before while allowing you to be more thoughtful and deliberate about how to use your second Teleport. With the base cooldown on Teleport coming down to 11 seconds, all runes should now be more appealing. While the effect on some runes has been reduced, this should be more than made up for by the reduced cooldown in all cases.
