Post news RSS Version 3.43 officially released

Inspired by recent D2R 2.4 PTR, I update again primarily for better skill feature and balance. I especially addressed the issue where Assassin blade-trap skills suffer from the lack of attack rating. D2R 2.4 is a huge content patch since patch 1.10, but honestly I don't agree with most skill enhancements because they are either overpowered or missing the point. Hence, D2R 2.4 PTR soft-coded changes are rarely taken into this version.
