Why nerfing attack speed is WRONG

Obviously, I play a Demon Hunter so I lost quite a bit of DPS on account of the increased attack speed (IAS) nerf that Blizzard did a month ago.

Before the IAS nerf, I was pulling off 2.5 attacks in a second with a bow, which wasn’t anything spectacular. I’d imagine with a better bow (20% IAS), I could’ve passed 3 attacks per second.

At first glance, it does look quite excessive. English longbowmen were renowned for being able to shoot a dozen arrows in the span of a minute.

Here’s the counter-argument! Just replace the handgun with a handbow:

Yes, that’s right – two shots from a handarm can be done in a split second (technically, about 2/100 of a second). Blizzard, give us back the attack speed!
