No more extreme Wizardy in Diablo 3, the wizard is getting nerfed heavily, as it should be. The quote from Blizzard was that it is regarding the invulnerability as a sort of hack and glitch, it should not be there and it should be used to play the game.
So it is getting fixed heavily check out below what Blizzard had to say on the forums.
