Diablo III Nerf Warning

The Diablo III Website outlines plans to nerf the Trail of Cinders rune for the Demon Hunter in the upcoming version 1.0.5 update for Blizzard's action/RPG sequel, calling the fact that it does 500% more damage than intended a bug (explained more fully here). They explain that this could be hotfixed, but will not be, even though there is no ETA at the moment for the new patch:

While this bug was discovered very quickly after 1.0.4 released and is capable of being hotfixed, we didn't want to move forward with the fix without giving players proper notice. We also know that players are having fun using Trail of Cinders in their builds, so -- although this is an important issue we want to address -- we're opting to wait for the next client patch to make any adjustments.

We recognize that some builds which currently use Trail of Cinders will no longer be viable once this bug is fixed. Ultimately, we want to continue to provide players with more build options and ways to feel creative with their skill/gear selections, but not at the expense of going against our design goals or creating situations which can encourage players to limit themselves defensively.

I keep hoping they'll tweak loot drops so that playing the game constantly feels like you're choosing between using the new gear you just found and keeping the old gear you have.

Borderlands did this so amazingly well. As you play the drops kept giving you things that were subtly different and it looks like they've stuck with that in borderlands 2. (Based on the very little in game footage i've seen....)

Finding loot is fun if it's useful. I have a staff of "Burning Fools" but I just picked up a staff of "Freezing dudes". Do I want to stick with burning or try out freezing? Oh man I just found staff of "Melting Mofo's!" which one do I use!?!!?

That might happen once every few days in diablo 3. You can have something like that experience going into the auction house but that is so disruptive to the experience.

I am really looking forward to Borderlands 2. I want to get my loot in game not in an auction house.
