You do realise this is a huge nerf for the build?

As an example, my char would have around 46% of the original trigger area with the new changes. Simplesim's char had even more trigger radius so I'm guessing he would have around 35-40% of the original area.

You do realise this is a huge nerf for the build?

As an example, my char would have less than 50% of the original trigger radius with the new changes. Simplesim's char had even more trigger radius so I'm guessing he would have around 35-40% of the original value.


yeah i think they didnt read the manifesto yet.

even though i read the manifesto, i still couldnt figure out how it works.

it says the aoe wont get scaled geometrically, that means the buffs wont buff/scale/change the existing buffed amounts of the skill.

some friend of mine gave me the critical multiplier example, but i dont see how it fits here. +flat numbers instead of %increase can be bettr for some builds and i see no punishment on heavily min maxed builds on this scenario.

still, can anyone explain me with numbers? without numbers due to lack of my english skills i cant understand the meaning through understanding grammatical differences of both sentence meaning almost the same.

that "omfg..." wasn't a positive one. I absolutely realize this is a nerf.

I'm just tired of always having to bend over.

First with firestorm
Then with vortex trap
Now with bear trap

and fireball is gonna get a limit of 2 threshold jewels so no more screenwide fireballs either.


Meanwhile EA!

Only for those heavily invested in AoE.
Crit Shockwave Totem 650k +: #1657327 / Crit VMS (1 mil DPS): #1511368 / Crit self-cast spark: #1565708
1.3 crit firestorm: #1280086 / 1.3 crit Ice Nova: #1219809 / Flame Nova (sire of shards incinerate): #1359847
Rup the new increases just apply to a different part of the area equation

circle area = pi * radius^2


The old increases applied to radius whereas the new ones apply to area. This meant the more increased aoe you had, the more you would benefit from it. Now it has diminishing returns and every extra % gives a little less.

Most builds that used to have around 50% aoe will benefit from this, especially with the buffs the base radius per level on some skills.

Now our bear trap builds had 300-400% inc radius... This is why it is such a huge nerf
