I think they are working on that for the next patch there is a post in the developer journal saying they are working on it and they will release it when the finish it since they are starting to move towards releasing fixes when they are finished instead of joining them together into one large patch. Lets hope we see it soon right?

Am I a bad person for wanting to dance around and go "told you so, told you so!"?

Quoting Obscenitor,

Its not that much of a change (22% still leads to ~1.4k heals if you health stack), but I'd guess slightly less pounce spammage, in favor of heal. Slightly. Mainly it'll affect item buy order, as ~1.5k to upgrade your monks 100% was sweet and could take precedence over certain other 1.5k items. Now it'll cost ~2k to upgrade to upgrade your monks 47%, which can wait until later.

Is it just me or does removing Horn of Battle and Ring of Might seem like a really lame temporary fix until they get around to actually fixing them?

In any case this is a good start on fixing the game's many bugs!

10% extra healing = 600hp late game, and that is the difference between living and dying.

I'm sure they'll re-add them into the game once they are fixed. Although they may end up being completel changed.

It is definitely an extra level 1 heal every priest cast.  I think in general priests minions are still a bit too strong, but at least this glaringly bad error is not longer in existence.

Thank goodness, I always get priests, and updated them at every chance, but when it came time to update from 2-3, I was "a'scard" of what people would think.  Now I can just play as I usually do without "exploit guilt".

Lame? No, quite the contrary. It's better to deactivate an unbalanced icon as soon as possible than having to wait until it is actually balanced, imho. I quite like their approach, kudos to Stardock/GPG .

It depends on how you look at it.  HW's effect on Sedna's priest minions went from doubling their potential effectiveness (15% to 30%) to now only increasing it by 50% (15% to 22%).  22% heal is very nice, but 15% is pretty good, too.   I think that makes HW II more of a tempting option than a must-have by level 5 for any Sedna build, which is how it ought to be.

Disagree.  Priest minions are really strong as it is, and making them 50% stronger is still an extremely powerful thing to do.  Even just Monks healing at 15% can be more than a lot of DG's can handle.
