    @Hunam you’re mistaken.
    The patch with all the nerfs that you are refering to is the 1.04 patch. These patch notes for the 1.03 patch notes have been out for quite some time now in the japanees forums, while the 1.04 just came yesterday or some such.

    So this patch is just fixed, no nerfs as far as I can tell.. so you can probably play all eastern with no nerfs. :D
