More Diablo III 1.04 Class Previews

The Diablo III Website now offers previews of what the upcoming version 1.04 patch for Diablo III holds for the remaining classes in the action/RPG sequel: The Monk, the Demon Hunter, and the Witch Doctor. In each case they discuss plans to buff underutilized skills to promote build diversity.

I'm loving those WD changes, having most recently invested in some thorns/regen equipment to really get deep into a pet-centric build (that was supposed to be viable in late Inferno anyway, so now should be really awesome with the buffs). And the base mana regen increase? Holy shit that's huge. Of course people are whining all over the comments because the trade-off in Vision Quest "breaks the 4-cooldown build, boohoo!" Meanwhile, that was the worst fucking mechanic in any ARPG ever, especially combined with the major resource imbalance that previously plagued the class. Who the hell wants to be all but forced to carry 4 throwaway skills in order to keep the mana flowing for your one damage dealer? Good riddance, I say.

Yep. Vision Quest, was a bad idea. "Instead of using my abilities skillfully, I will just mash them whenever they are up even if they are hardly useful at the time!". I also can't help but feel non-VQ WD mana regen was limited just to try and balance VQ bear WDs.

Again they addressed pretty much all of my complaints.
