Diablo 3 Blue Posts » Xah Rith WAY too tough for regular story mode


BBopMcJiggy
I decided to play my barb for the first time in a long time today. It was a lot of fun until I got to Xah. He was waaaay too tough. So then I adjusted my skills. He still pwned me instantly. Then i went to the AH and spent a decent penny to nearly dbl my DMG, and increase defense by a decent amount too. Still, very very difficult and still can not kill him. For the regular story mode he is WAY too strong.

It can only be a bug.

It's not a bug, but we're definitely paying close attention to player feedback about Xah'rith's current difficulty -- not just in Inferno, but in all difficulty levels, and at all MP levels too.

We agree that he may be a little bit too challenging at the moment, and are discussing the possibility of either reducing his outgoing damage, tweaking what affixes he spawns with, or moving his spawn location (right now, he's kind of hard to avoid if you're just questing normally). We'd like to hear more from the community on the topic first, though, before we make any decisions.

In the end, we want the keywardens to provide a fun challenge for players, and be a little more difficult than the surrounding wildlife (i.e. a fight you have to put some thought into), but we don't want that to happen at the expense of being able to progress through an Act.

Just in case you didn't see it this morning, we recently made some hotfixes which affect Xah'rith's difficulty: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/blog/7634966/
