act 2 is a piece of piss now. although it already was before the update, just now even easier.
You should first try act 2 with melee character first before typing such bs. It was completely pointless without spending few millions on AH, even my monk that could easily tank anything on act 1 was completely destroyed by simple monsters in act 2 to the point there was no way to progress. Yes you could beat this easily with wizard but wizard and dh were easy mode, could fare really well with cheap blue items. There is no way for melee characters to play like that, they are a lot more gear dependent and people on ah exploit that, you can easily buy really good 1k dps crossbow on ah for around 1 mil and less, you wont even get half as good 1h melee weapon with descent life on hit for 3 mil and there is no better with armor pieces. I wont discuss act 3 and 4 but act 2 needed a nerf as difficulty wall was way too steep.
Though I agree they went too far with nerfs even it appears to follow AS nerf but still I think they nerfed both too much. There is more to this in shape of new repair costs. Now I can play act 2 it isnt too hard tbh but still with some deaths here and there, it gives a challenge what I like but in turn Im actually loosing gold instead of earning it, wth is that? Its completely counter productive.
Now we can either play on earlier acts with little to no risk of dieing but earning some gold or give yourself some challenge and what follows death chance especially with some nasty elite combos but with high risk of actually losing gold.
btw why I got a feeling they nerfed act 1 inferno as well?
