1.0.1 Patch Notes

Wow, that CoDT nerf is pretty huge and severely hurts players using it currently; those players *will not be able to use the link combo at all* until their CoDT gem is leveled massively, and at that point the combo wouldn't even be worth using thanks to CoDT needing a shitload of damage taken at higher levels.

CoDT is the only gem I know of that gets *worse* as you level it, and now we're being forced to level it anyway just to use it at all. That's pretty ridiculous, you could have at least buffed its later levels so that you don't need to sit around for 20 minutes waiting to take 2000+ damage.

Thanks for screwing solo players further.


wait what?


Nerf to Purity means solo players get the shaft.

Group players can coordinate 3 defensive auras to get capped resists. Plus they have 5 other people taking damage either way.

They also decided to buff group play again with the increased monster health part.

It's more and more obvious that they're trying to force group play now.

It's always a choice between solo play and group play. And right now GGG is (deliberately or not) making group play much, much more attractive.

The much higher monster life in 1.0.0 for groups has really disincentivised playing in them. There was a major shift towards solo play. That's why we reduced the new group monster health bonus slightly in this patch.

I feel like people use this line of arguing don't ever play in groups. If two people are running grace and determination to get massive armor totals because they're constantly in melee range, one of them isn't going to suddenly stop using those auras in order to run two purities. Why? Well because if they end up not next to the other guy then their armor will drop by 75%, and they'll RIP.

Where they will sub out those auras is the same places a solo person would, facing a map boss like the crematorium boss (massive fire damage).

Except in groups where there are dedicated supports this change will effect groups and solo pretty identically everywhere except for in theorycrafting.

Thanks for the reply Chris.

If you don't mind, could you explain in detail what you meant by "there was a major shift towards solo play"?

I can definitely see how someone just starting out and leveling through Cruel or someone who is farming Merciless Docks would be incentivised towards solo play. Hell, that's how I did it for my newest character.

But by my knowledge most people (and especially the players in Nemesis) are playing exclusively in groups when maps are involved. And by the way things are moving right now, that would remain as the superior way of playing through maps.

What are your thoughts on this?

Rest in peace, CODT.
You will be missed.

I loved having my level 20 molten shell proc instantly, and my rejuv totem.
I don't feel as if it was overpowered.
Oh well, I guess it's ironic chris' name ingame is Nerf.

I still don't see Cast when damage taken fix as a permanent one, as people will find that sweet spot between synchronizing how much to level it. Higher levels are still make the gem worthless. Unless there's a change there that wasn't noted in the list.
