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.

So you have some classes with a few good skills, and a ton of bad ones. And so you BUFF the bad ones? Rather than just nerf the shit out of the good ones?

Who are you and what have you done to Blizzard?!

Also, Bioware, since you wholesale copied Blizzard's method of "balancing" stuff, please take fucking note.

Reading the Monk notes, one thing stuck out pretty clear to me and it was that Blizzard was stressing how they didn't want to invalidate a player's accumulated gear with balance changes. Coming from a WoW background, hearing that from Blizzard made me just want to laugh and laugh since that has never been true for any of their games in the past...

Oh, the tangled web we weave when we seek to have a RMAH. Now that people are paying hard cash for their gear, Blizzard is afraid to do a change that will cause that gear to become worthless or cause shifts in the market. Future economic studies papers on Diablo 3 are getting more and more interesting all the time.
