Really? They BUFFED the Necromancer? I started out as Necro and changed characters because my skeletons were killing all the enemies before they even made it onto the screen. Every now and then a couple enemies would make it to me for me to kill, but for the most part my minions were killing everything easily. To the point that I was wondering why the game had so few enemies in it.

Then I switched to Barbarian and realized that there were a lot of enemies but as Necromancer they were all just getting murdered before I even saw them.

I really don't think Necro needs a buff lol. At least not to the minions.

It was like that with necro once he was first introduced, at last beta he was serverly nerfed to the point, that he's underperforms now. Skeletons doesn't feel like base of this class anymore, maybe just an extension ar kinda-neat addition.

Necro needs a lot of balancing still and not in the way of only nerfing things.

LordoftheCritics116d ago

Ye necro still feels nerfed.

At later levels it still needs some juice.

DaCajun115d ago

So early paid access to games are now the new betas. Wow the greed from these companies, making people pay to beta test.

''I really don't think Necro needs a buff lol. At least not to the minions.'

You might want to level up and watch you minions get obliterated by elites.

Goosejuice116d ago

This isn't based off early game. Necromancer is F tier in a lot of it builds right now other than bone spear for late game.

OneLove115d ago

Nah that was during the beta and even then boss fights would destroy summons easily. Playing right now I can feel the nerf.

just_looken115d ago

I was thinking they fix the basic attack going away so we can yuse the damage of our swords

Or make it so you can use a horse sooner rather then 60% though the campaign

Or even go crazy and make it less a chore in general with the back tracking/walking in general.

Viljong115d ago

Play veteran not easy mode. Necro is weak in latergame groups the minions are weak n distracting.

They said that Rogue was buffed, but reading the article, all I see is that Twisting Blades has a longer cooldown now, critical chance for some attacks has been reduced, though I guess damage done by Caltrops has been increased...

Haven't started the game yet, but I plan on playing a melee Rogue.

just_looken115d ago

i have been playing as a rogue do to the bug were you loose your basic attack the stranded skill for a rouge does 88-1120dmg level 5-34 my current level.

Do not use a bow its worse

Good luck in D4 just get ready for 600-?dmg blades you cant use and walking for 15-40min because the horse unlocks at act 4/6.

InUrFoxHole115d ago

Would really like to see more coverage on the licensing issues and couch co-op

just_looken115d ago

That and the no basic attack its all skill attack while you have a blade on you and the levels that are not finished.

Was in a dungeon last night its the one with the dog at the end the doors had no open animation but you could just walk through them.

Oh no a boss battle just let me phase through a door said boss cant then chip at him till death.

said boss also has no attack past the front 0 rear dmg just sit in the back and chip away till death ha ha ha

I have a friend that has to log in to his other friends account as the other player, connect second controller and log in with his user and then log out of other friends acc so they can play together. it's very likely it'll crash btw

Exhausting game.

There is zero drive to do anything in the game.

Slappy McGee4d ago

Especially after you beat it. The seasons are just not fun and neither is grinding to level up since everything levels with you.

Sonic18814d ago

I went from liking this game to hating it. Diablo Immoral 2.0

Gardenia4d ago

That's what battle pass and seasons do to a game. They control how much you can play, how fast you should level and what you can win for free.

I am starting to believe Xbox is cursed at this point... everything they touched slowly become shit, not saying it is their responsibility as I know they don't have involvement on some of these games, just crazy how they are almost impossible to put out a decent games as long as the publishers/studios are owned by them, unlucky I guess.

bradfh4d ago

Activision, not Xbox, is responsible for disappointing games like Diablo, Overwatch 2, Call of Duty, and World of Warcraft, which often suffer from endless grinding and changes that make them less enjoyable.

Kosic3d ago

Xbox does not own D4, so I am unsure how they can be at fault for this game...
