Pretty lame to nerf Cast on Death with minions if characters were actually dying to pull it off.

Shame.


Two thirds of the exploits with Cast on Death involved minions. Getting super zombies by dying several times in non-hardcore leagues was not ideal, getting super minions without death was even more problematic.

Minions with Cast on Death is one of those things that would keep coming back to haunt us again and again.

We are considering a dedicated cast on minion death option.


I certainly hope you are because the current implementation of this gem is completely inane. I mean no offense but seriously, this wasn't even funny.
Dang, no more rushing your alts with your own portals.

Was nice while it lasted.
Making minions viable is already a huge challenge without substantial gear...

It seems like this is a quick fix to the exploits in nemesis, but it affects all summoners.

Wouldn't it be a better solution to just remove the gem from nemesis league instead of penalizing all summoners?

Have you guys discovered what is causing the abnormal latency in some zones, while normal latency in others?

Maybe a server restart will fix this, I hope so tho.

It was probably only intended to be used in team PVP events.

How were you using Cast on Death with minions, if it was to get super zombies through dying, that isn't really intended either.

1.0.6 will have some adjustments to summoned minions.
