I haven't really played much since the last patch, how were the melee changes? I really enjoy the game but I feel like build diversity in hardcore is limited by the survivability nodes that are essentially required in almost every build. I don't mind this so much but to dedicate so many of them to it feels off somehow. I'm not a big fan of Chaos Damage/Resist either, it felt like pandering to the streaming crowd who were complaining that difficulty wasn't there. They added this weird arbitrary resist with only a few nodes in the tree as a quick fix and its awkwardly inserted into the game.

Taking a bit of a break while some patches accrue, I was getting a bit burnt out on my melee dudes since it felt like only a few skills were ever viable for the builds I was doing.

Melee classes still feel a bit gimped, although the duelist got a major overhaul last patch and is right now kicking major ass. My main is a ranger and I have built her as a pure damage dealer with maybe one point in a % life skill. Im doing quite well with her ATM. (lvl 51) The chaos damage/resist is still off, monsters do a shitload of that and the items with chaos resist are few and very far between.

The biggest improvements seem to be in the feel of the game and the graphics themselves. The game is getting more and more polish with every single patch and its noticable.

Its still a long way off from being anywhere near balanced (at least with regards to melee) but even at this point I would recommend this game over Diablo3.

P.S. The servers are having a hard time in the last couple of days as it seems the popularity of this game is soaring and some noticable lag has appeared as a result. This is my biggest gripe with the game ATM at peak times solo play is impossible...

Did you use a specific build guide or did you do it as you felt?
I haven't played too much and am in the third act with my Ranger, level 31, and it's pretty difficult. :/
I am not sure whether my build is wrong or whether it's the nature of the third act because a lot of people in chat always complain about how difficult the third act is.
I'm just unsure of whether I skilled her wrong and will run into problems later.
