    Elites are completely broken

    Fanboys will reject this as me being a "wuss" and I need to "learn to play" but I've been saying for two weeks now that the modifiers are completely and totally broken. All of them. This has been since shortly before 1.0.3, but now there's this:

    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/6036883772

    That's the kind of stuff I'm talking about. Check out that album. I'm currently compiling the largest amount of feedback I've ever given to a game developer before, for a single game, but I think that nobody will even read it.

    We'll just continue to get garbage like this.

    That makes vipers look tame.

    Well, we have ghom shooting out invisible poison clouds so it's like we're back in D2 sewers.

    Re: Elites are completely broken

    I suggest you don't post in all caps though. Blizz is never fond of rage "feedbacks" and unhelpful titles, and tends to lock them down or delete them. If your title was "20+ arcane sentry spawned by 1 elite pack", then it gets a lot better visibility, and more likely to be acted upon quicker. I wonder how that one happened though? The horde affix combined with the fact that usually this monster type spawns with many imp minions?

    Minion + mortar is a similar situation for ranged peeps.

    Re: Elites are completely broken

    I actually faced that exact elite combination today. I destroyed it easily and had the same density of arcane beams. Change your spec.

    I used:
    Bash - Instigation
    Whirlwind - Hurricane
    Battle Rage - Into the Fray
    War Cry - Impunity
    Sprint - Run Like the Wind
    WotB - Thrive on Chaos
    Ruthlessness
    Weapons Master (Sword)
    Nerves of Steel or Animosity, I don't actually remember.

    I wouldn't say elites are broken.. I'd say just extremely difficult to gear up to be able to beat them easily. Don't expect to faceroll everything with subpar gear and specs.

    I had a higher level of difficulty with sand wasps w/ shielding, arcane, molten, desecrator.. which i ended up skipping due to the run away feature.

    I do not think that 20 laser is intended. The only thing you can really do is pop invin and run.

    Re: Elites are completely broken

    I've been joining public games for act 2 inferno with my monk tank, and have no problem killing elite packs as long as there are at least 2 average but efficient DPS players dishing damage behind me.

    You can stop the QQ, D3 is not like D2 where you can simply stack on +skills and get teleport, then BAM everything will be easily demolished in end game.

    Inferno revolves around party play, and that is what d3 end game is all about.

    I do not deny the fact that item affixes are pretty lacklustre though, and some affixes need to be balanced(illusionist + arcane enchanted/mortar do not end up looking pretty, shielding + invulnerable is kinda stupid).

    Re: Elites are completely broken

    Imagine how awesome you'd feel beating a champ pack like that one.

    I support the design philosophy that in a randomized game, there will occasionally be situations that you aren't strong enough to overcome (yet). It may be frustrating, but that's why you keep working to gear up and get better.
