As a bow user, im in a corner crying with the nerfed meta cyclone zerker/slayer bois.


Bow is in a decent place now. TS, rain of arrows, scourge arrow, toxic rain, caustic arrow, ele hit are powerful. Lightning arrow, ice shot,
Blast rain, split arrow lacking behind but not bad. Burning and Shrapnel arrow sucks. Overall it's decent.


I completely agree, but having a little added base damage offset by lowered overall damage multiplier and some nice utilize secondary skills like what melee got would really make the bow user experince much nicer during the 1-70 process.

Wands also need a lot of help.

well 3.9 minions nerfed to the ground


This, were gonna see single minions doing more damage than most peoples developed builds, already possible with umbillicus and some pot stacking but when were hitting 500-1mil skellies/zombies content is going to be such a joke.

Love the new wands but just don't really like what it actually means.


I coud already make Skele Necro with 20c budget(just Tabula needed) as a boss killer which would be better than most builds with 10ex budget.


I can't tell if your arguing that its a good thing or that it doesn't matter lol, I guess it doesn't really matter except they are drawing attention to it and will then gut it later.

I still don't like it though, necro's have needed QoL/AI changes forever they definitely haven't needed numerical buffs for a long time lol

MY point is, yes summoners are OP and will be even better in 3.8, but I doubt they will nerf it in 3.9. Summoners were stupidly OP for years now, it was just never meta enough to actually nerf it (and I doubt it will be this league. GGG will most likely add some godly new skill that 50% of playerbase will play)

This is not about the wand... It's a subliminal message to buy the most expensive supporter pack, 'cause you know... 80085

Also as Charan pointed the name is very weird and clunky.

Are you showcasing actual wand 3d art? Because it's beautiful, but if it's a MTX, it's just a misleading, dirty marketing trick.

+1 to change the base name's wand :p

Convoking doesn't sound great, atleast Convoker Wand maybe ?
Reborn Wand ?
Disembodied wand ?


(Edit : btw the item seems really good :p)

Kinda wondering a little what other 5 minion mods can roll on these - so far on display is gems, movement, and damage - Fair assumptions based on previously available mods are: life, attack/cast speed, life regen, leech, additional minions, ele/chaos res, and block, but maybe there's something new there that hasn't yet been available on other items in the past like aggro range, dmg conversions or aoe?

Don't mind the base name, could be something else i suppose, won't really be a big deal to me :p
