Thanks for the update.

This is going to be interesting for my Witchblade and Warlord :smiley:
Does it stack with Fist of Vire btw ?

Really wish Oleron kept the physical RR :frowning:

Would be nice to reduce the effectiveness of his fumble

Tidy little patch with nothing disagreeable, now to get home and check on the updated throne and co.

The new Empty Throne is causing me to rethink of my pet build devotion setups.

I love almost everything. Well done.

But what about Invoker, @Zantai? Are you leaving it as primarily a Fire set now?

Complete 1.1.4. is hard nerf for my Trickster because of Racial Damage Cut (Anatomy of Murder was unexpected). But some of my devotions were buffed (and the others look fine, too), so…well played, Mr. Z. :slight_smile:

The change to Obisidian Juggernaut is very interesting, now this thing is up next in my priority list: https://www.grimtools.com/calc/M2gGpyB2

Changes to devotions are great, spider and throne are cool now, just raven still looks worse than Scholar’s Light. Empyrion went such a long way since I started playing, really looking good now. Wolverine also still a bit lackluster for it’s requirements, could use a few generic bonuses on the retal nodes.

Hoping Zantarin does something other than providing ADCtH targets now.

Anatomy of murder was pretty obvious as an upcoming nerf after all the racial damage retuning… I was surprised it slipped through last time.

I thought there might be a chance that this might be intentional (unique ability). And 54 % nerf (with no compensation e. g. Cunning) on a skill was really unexpected for me.

At this rate I’m expecting Runecaster’s prefix to get dunked on for 1.1.5.0

Maybe it’s finally time to change the conversion on Soulrend or on BH transmute to pierce–>cold?
Since the weapon has now pure cold damage base and is commonly utilised with PB/BH that have no phys base, I think changing the conversion will bring more sence. :slightly_smiling_face:

Throne and spider put some T3’s to shame :slight_smile: throne is really nice

Aaargh stop teasing me, what’s in the box?!?!?

Yeah…and some others like “of Ruthlessness”, too.

these changes actually kinda messed with belgo.

anatomy especially

Not to brag but with the new changes to Light of Empyrion i can facetank Callagadra to around half or less it’s health now. This with a Cadence Warlord and fighting her with those big tornadoes, while normally i would die sooner.

Fist of Vire, Light of Empyrion, Stone Form and Shield Wall. :grava_yes:

What should I say?

  • Guthook Belt
  • Direwolf Crest
  • Anatomy of Murder

Hard times. :wink:

Now throw in a chunky Azrakaa’s Epoch buff and we all be happy bees… right guys?!
