Blast Missile damage decreased by 400% after patch

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

I have just come back from work and downloaded the latest patch.

 

I used to be able to farm GM2 in freeplay with my friend with a Blast Missile specific build focusing on increased % blast damage.

 

I read a small buff to Blast Missile in the patch note so I was pretty excited. To my disappointment, I am doing a quarter of the damage I used to yesterday. I takes me literally 4 missiles to kill a small dominion monster, when a single missile would do the job yesterday. 

 

I am absolutely gutted: I am nowhere near as useful as before with my Ranger in GM2 now.

 

PS: My Ranger is ilvl 488.

They broke it!! 

 

60% physical dmanage 

109% E damage 

50% bonus blast damage

15% launcher bonus, 

 

and now I hit for 7k!!!!  I spent 25+ hours just testing and trying out this build, and farming and comparing crit to physical damage compared to E +damage. This is crazy

I noticed this also. I have since went back to venom to buff my MW sticky "The Gambit". The MW dart is good for damage too , it can 2 shot weak mobs in GM1 and it has 4 charges.

It's actually got fixed. Blast Missile was scaling with difficulty for some weird reason, that's why it did so much damage to begin with.
