Step into the treacherous realm of Diablo 4 as the Season of the Construct approaches, bringing with it a storm of changes and adjustments. Among the most significant alterations are the tweaks to Diablo 4's beloved classes, leaving players both excited and apprehensive. Sorcerers, in particular, are in for a shock as their trusty ball lightning build faces a major nerf in the upcoming update 1.3.0. Brace yourselves, fellow adventurers, for the tides of power are shifting!
A Shocking Blow to Sorcerers:
If you've been harnessing the power of the sorcerer in Diablo 4, then you know the devastating might of the ball lightning build. It has been the go-to strategy for taking down Uber Lilith without breaking a sweat. But alas, the days of this overpowered exploit are numbered. Despite Blizzard's previous assurances that they had no plans to nerf the skill, the Season of the Construct brings forth a reckoning for ball lightning enthusiasts.
An Unexpected Twist:
Blizzard explains that ball lightning is dealing more damage than intended, leading to the decision to address this "issue" in Diablo 4 Season 3. While the exact details of the nerf remain shrouded in mystery, the patch notes reveal a change that might hold the key to unraveling this electrifying dilemma. Enhanced ball lightning will now have its attack rate increase with attack speed, up to 25%. Sounds like a buff, right? Well, hold on to your spellbooks, for this adjustment actually delivers a shocking blow to the skill's damage output.
The Shocking Truth:
Let's take a moment to examine the current state of ball lightning. Presently, the skill's damage rate is increased by a staggering 200% of your attack speed bonus. But here's the twist: this significant difference in damage is only noticeable if you rely on increased attack speed as a bonus, rather than your base attack speed. So, brace yourselves, sorcerers, as the lightning storm is about to lose some of its electrifying power.
The Sorcerer's Reign:
The recent developer update revealed that sorcerers, alongside necromancers, reign supreme as the most popular classes in Diablo 4. However, with the ball lightning nerf on the horizon, the sorcerer's dominance may experience a shocking setback. Will players stand by their magical brethren, or will they seek new avenues of power in the face of adversity? Only time will tell.
Season of the Construct Delights:
But fear not, fellow adventurers, for the Season of the Construct brings more than just nerfs. Prepare to be enchanted by the introduction of the pet Seneschal, a faithful companion to accompany you on your perilous journeys through the realms of Diablo 4. And that's not all! The long-awaited leaderboards make their grand entrance, adding a new layer of competition and glory to the world of Sanctuary. Get ready for a season filled with excitement and surprises.
