Path of Exile: Synthesis Patch Notes

Ice Nova
Mana Cost at gem level 1 is now 8 (was 10).
Mana Cost at gem level 20 is now 23 (was 31).
Now has a cast time of 0.7 seconds (from 0.8).
Now deals 18 to 26 Cold damage at gem level 1 (from 19 to 28) and 518 to 762 Cold damage at gem level 20 (from 632 to 930).
Now adds 3 to 4 Cold damage against Chilled enemies at gem level 1 (unchanged) and 79 to 116 Cold damage against Chilled enemies at gem level 20 (from 97 to 141).
Now has an added damage effectiveness of 120% (from 130%).

This is a pretty huge nerf yknow.
I know why you do this, but think about those who do hand cast, do they really get rewarded for nerf as big as this?

Also why not fix for trash aura that depend 100% on Watcher Eye, like Vitality?
Should just gives 200 flat life like Discipline gives 200 flat ES.

Do you really want ES to be meta for 3 leagues straight this bad?
Why're you ok with 18k es build roaming around and not caring about life build at all?

Also I don't get it. How come Loreweave warrant a nerf while HH is left alone even though HH is more OP in every perceivable way?
Why you allow some items to be broken while the more accessible items need to be gutted ?

Why the nerf to Tombfist attack speed? at least replace it with another mod not just remove completely.
Wtf nerf arc damage fine, but 25 unit chain distance is so bad. Skill got completely dumpstered who would even self cast that now?
LF melee players support group to share the pain
They already said they are making the melee changes in 3.7, stop whining.

Spectral Shield Throw

Base Off Hand Attack Time is now 0.65 seconds at gem level 1 (from 0.7 seconds) and 0.56 seconds at gem level 20 (from 0.61 seconds).
Base projectile speed is now slightly faster.

Ikr, Arc's clear is actually never as good as properly scaled aoe because of target limit It's only good because of multiple casts from traps/ totems makes the target limit not a huge issue.

Now 25 tracking is so bad it can't even be called an aoe...
No-one will ever self cast this piece of shit "aoe" skill.

Arc rip, this is the biggest/ worst nerf you can get.

Glad I played Arc in both 3.3~3.5 while it's still usable (Be it trap or totem)
It's pretty good bossing , but now gonna give up on you.

essence drain - huge dmg buff and it now spreads dot aoe on its own. 1.1k dps ->1.5k dps
Ethereal knives - pretty big dmg buff
fireball - dmg buff but somehow it didnt get its cast time increased???
firestorm - lost like 0.3% of its damage (what's the point of that) but big cast speed increase
freezing pulse - minor dmg increase and added dmg effectiveness
hatred - gives less phys as extra cold but gives more cold damage now
ice nova - they nerfed the gamage a bunch.. why? cast speed is a bit faster tho

arcane surge support - gives more spell dmg to linked skill on top of what it gave before
chain support - gives a lot less "less" damage (10% from 30%)
decay support - dmg buff
fork support - now gives 10% MORE damage when before it gave 10% less
innervate support - dmg buff and it last longer
onslaught & summon phantasm on kill - 10% chance on hitting a rare/unique
66% reduced curse effectiveness against Uniques bosses:

Temp Chains, level 20: 14 - (14 * .66) = 4.76

That's right, folks. Reserving 35% of your mana will give you less than 5% action speed reduction for a unique boss. Invest in defensive curses today!
