    well battlerage seems like its taking a huge hit… with the 70% crit dmg cap on precision strike along with total nerf to all crit rates and damages being capped.. is it me or does it seems like TankAge is coming back!!! well that does work for me cause I am a Tank..

    • Rich

      That, as a minimum, needed to happen tbh. No more insta-I-win for battlerage. All that’s left now is to curb the insane mage damage.

  2. Kharabakh

    The new lunarite system seems interesting. Are lunarites still going to be available through prestige or is it going to be a copper/silver/gold locked crate only kind of a thing?

  3. Darkenrahl

    monstrous desire doesn’t regen +70% of max mana in 30 sec…it actually got nerfed form +75 to +70 mana per second for 30seconds…
