Two hand weapon buff for all two handers below lvl 70(1)Category: PTR FeedbackJuly-17-2014 8:55 PM PDT (5 years ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
I was going to roll a crusader on seasons. Now that the damage increase does not apply to items below 70, it's actually harmful to use the heavenly strength passive. You're better off going with a one hander and using the one hander passive instead.

So either buff two handers below lvl 70, or remove the damage reduction for crusader below lvl 70. Either one is fine with me.

We're planning on expanding the level range for the retroactive damage buff to 2-handed melee weapons, so that it will include item levels 10-70 in patch 2.1. One of the benefits of this change is that it should help lower level Crusaders feel like Heavenly Strength is still a good choice. The percent of increased damage will still be based on the weapon speed, and not based on item level. So, lower level items will receive the same base percent damage increase as their higher level counterparts.

Additionally, we're adjusting the amount of increased damage from 23-26% to 26-30%.

What about the 2H Bows and Xbows you forgot about the DH again we don't need buf on the weapons just gonna plat sentries we have the M6... what if someone don't have the set of don't want to use it?!?


Currently the changes to increase baseline 2-handed weapon damage will only be for melee, since 2-handed ranged weapons are already performing the way we want them to.

You hit the nail on the head here. Currently, 2-Handed Crossbows/Bows are very competitive with 1-Handed Crossbows because Demon Hunters can use a quiver with any bow type and as a result, 2-Handed Crossbows/Bows do not require a rebalance.
