    Blessed Hammer and Concentration no longer work together. Blizzard didn't list it in 1.04 changes, but it has definitely been changed.

    I'm just thanking god that my lvl 77 hammerdin was able to pump up charge late in life so he at least has one attack that doesn't suck. Ouch...

    My amazon will avenge this outrage!

    I didn't have that kind of luck. I now have a high lvl mule. That really ticks me off. I guess I will be playing by bowazon, lancebarb, and new necro now. I can't believe that happened. I thought that they were going to fix the display problem in that it didn't display the correct amount of damage. I didn't realized that they were getting rid of the combo.

    I am glab it will be returned to normal. I wonder if they will fix the damage display so we can actually see what the hammer damage is?

    Now the question is whe 1.05 will come out. By the way, conc still works with bows just not as powerful as before. But it is still worth for a zon and pally to partener up, as long as the zon has a decent bow.

    It is already fixed on realms (who here plays single player/open anymore anyway):
    Diablo II Realm Status

    ---------
    The following changes have been made to the Diablo II realm game
    servers (these changes are effective as of 8:00 PM PST (GMT -8).

    -- High-durability items will no longer lose durability when you
    join a game after exiting or dying.

    -- The Paladin's Concentration skill now enhances the damage of
    Blessed Hammer just as it did in 1.03. The damage displayed on
    the Character screen has not been corrected, however.

    -- The Amazon's Strafe skill now correctly enhances base bow
    damage rather than total bow damage. This change balances
    Strafe, preventing it from being much more powerful than intended
    given the general damage fix to bows in 1.04. Bows still have
    greatly enhanced damage over 1.03.

    -- The Amazon's Guided Arrow now enhances base bow damage rather
    than total bow damage. See Strafe for an explanation. Guided
    Arrow had no enhanced damage in 1.03.

    -- The Conversion skill no longer causes a monster counting error
    in the Den of Evil.

    umm, I do.
    especially on Friday/Saturday when BNet is a total lagfest or when I want to test a theory involving the H-cube.

    Old Amazon strafe damage (1.03):
    Damage = [base damage *(1 + dex/100)] * (1+strafe bonus) * (1+conc bonus)

    New Amazon strafe damage (1.04b):
    Damage = [base damage*(1 + dex/100 + strafe bonus + conc bonus)]

    It means that amazons today will do less damage than they did yesterday, but probably still more than they did before 1.04. The exception is if you have a ****ty bow with no enhanced damage then you're doing less than you would have done in 1.03.
