GENERAL
    Greatly increased the survivability of pets summoned by several items and skills, including:
        Skycutter
        Maximus
        The Gidbinn
        Genzaniku
        Litany of the Undaunted
        Call of the Ancients
        Falling Sword - Rise Brothers
    All Town hubs have had the placement of the Nephalem Rift Obelisk, Orek, and Kadala adjusted to help reduce the chance of accidental clicking
    The Blacksmith's Belongings box in Act I no longer has collision

CLASSES

    Barbarian
        Philosophy
            Many skills that spend Fury feel great, but when it comes time to generate Fury the single-target options don't feel meaty compared to the generators that can hit more than one target at a time. As a result, we are increasing the potency of those single-target generators to be more competitive.
        Active Skills
            Bash
                Increased base damage from 170% to 215% weapon damage
                Skill Rune - Clobber
                    Increased chance to stun for 1.5 seconds from 30% to 35%
                Skill Rune - Onslaught
                    Increased additional damage from 80% to 100% weapon damage
            Frenzy
                Increased base damage from 120% to 155% weapon damage
            War Cry
                Bug Fix: Fixed an issue preventing the 5 seconds of paused Fury degeneration after casting War Cry from working.
            Weapon Throw
                Increased base damage from 150% to 185% weapon damage
                Skill Rune - Mighty Throw
                    Increased damage from 210% to 270% weapon damage
                Skill Rune - Throwing Hammer
                    Increased chance to stun from 30% to 40%

    Crusader
        Philosophy
            Many of the Crusader's Wrath spenders are below where we would like, while Heaven's Fury - Fires of Heaven was over-performing. We are toning back Fires of Heaven while increasing the potency of most of the other Crusader spenders to encourage greater build exploration.
            The single-target Wrath generator spells, Punish and Justice, don't feel meaty compared to generators that can hit more than one target at a time. As a result, we are increasing the potency of Punish and Justice to be more competitive.
            We are making a few adjustments to improve Steed Charge. The cooldown and duration of the skill have both been reduced. Overall, this makes the total uptime for the skill slightly higher and, more importantly, you'll be able to hit the button more often. We're removing the ability for Steed Charge to break stuns, which allows us to focus on Steed Charge being primarily a mobility skill that can still get you out of root effects, such as Jailer. We still want Steed Charge to be useful in combat, so we're also increasing the damage on damage-focused runes.

    Demon Hunter
        Philosophy
            Many skills that spend Hatred feel great, but when it comes time to generate Hatred the single-target options don't feel meaty compared to the generators that can hit more than one target at a time. As a result, we are increasing the potency of a few single-target generators to be more competitive.
        Active Skills

                Increased base middle shot damage from 160% to 200% weapon damage

                Skill Rune - Guardian Turret
                    The damage reduction from this rune will now be reflected in the Toughness display

    Monk
        Philosophy
            Monks are working as intended and Dashing Strike is perfectly balanced.
            There are no Monk changes at this time. Monks are currently in a fairly comfortable place, but as with all aspects of the game, we will continue to monitor them and make changes as needed.

    Witch Doctor
        Philosophy
            The Witch Doctor was lacking good options for when they were low on Mana. A lack of attractive Signature spells results in builds primarily focused on sustaining Mana for long periods of time. We are increasing the potency of a few single-target Signature spells to be more competitive so that there are still aggressive options while waiting for Mana to regenerate.
            Haunt has received some changes to provide a low-Mana option as well as to emphasize options for a damage-over-time (DOT) play style.
        Active Skills
            Poison Dart
                Increased base skill damage from 155% + 40% to 185% + 40% weapon damage

                Increased base skill damage from 216% to 324% weapon damage
                Skill Rune - Leaping Spiders
                    Increased damage from 238% to 383% weapon damage
                Skill Rune - Blazing Spiders
                    Increased damage from 259% to 400% weapon damage
            Firebomb
                Skill Rune - Pyrogeist
                    Increased damage from 560% to 880% weapon damage
            Haunt
                Reduced Mana cost from 200 to 50
                Increased base skill damage from 1465% over 6 seconds to 4000% over 12 seconds

    Wizard
        Philosophy
            Two skills on the Wizard, Arcane Orb - Frozen Orb and Electrocute, have bugs with their implementation. Unfortunately, these bug fixes do have the side effect of weakening these skills. Ultimately, this brings these skills back in line with other Wizard skills, which is why we chose to implement these fixes.
            Teleport is receiving some changes to allow it to work in more situations. The range is being increased overall for each cast of Teleport. As a result, the Wormhole rune is receiving a reduction in the number of successive casts that can be completed. Previously, you could cover 140 yards in 4 casts and now you can cover 150 yards in 3 casts. Overall, this is a buff.
