So, Uber bosses and Pandemonium event are what you do after you beat Hell difficulty? Tried my hand at one just to see what it was like, took like 6-7 minutes to get through off Uber Duriel's HP. I'm guessing it's intended that you party for this stuff?

That and Secret Cow Level. People have better chance to beat ubers in MP game if they support each other with different buffs / synergies but that does not mean you cannot defeat them on your own (as you have already found out). Ubers will be changed in the next update (lower lvl, higher hp and better loot to compensate). The problem with ubers and their balancing is that I can easily kill them with one build within couple seconds and with other builds I cannot even scrach them so not all builds will be able to farm ubers efficiently, that's just a fact.

Anyway, in Act 6 there will be some brand new endgame content that I plan to implement so there's more to come.

Couple seconds? I'm running 7 skeleton warriors, 7 skeleton mages, Reven for HP regen, Oak Sage and it's passive along with skeleton mastery and summon resist. Highest damage from the mages so far is almost 82K damage. What kind of build could go through that much HP in a few seconds? Duriel seems to be immune to slow effects but thankfully the reduce target's damage seems to work.

Definitely not a pet build. Most ubers are demon-type and you have many D2 unique / set / RW items that have % damage increase to demons. Pets cannot use those bonuses, only player and player scaling pets (mercenaries) can. Therefore the best builds for ubers are usually weapon users with life leech and lots of % damage to demons.

When it's complete I want to move on the next project which is going to be a brand new game because that has always been my dream and now with the knowledge I have, it is finally possible.

Considering how scarce health potions are when you start, I don't really see myself ever making another char. Currently Necro/Druid is about as safe as i can be. With Druid Oak Sage I max out at almost 18.4K HP, trouble is when I was in the uber area the damn beetles that do the area attack when even just debuffed can kill me in about just 3 hits from that area spam if i don't have them debuffed. And all my resists are maxed as well. And as it is now it's pretty easy to build this 'build', just max out both skeletons, skeleton mastery, summon resist, Oak Sage and its 2 passive and put rest of points into Amplify damage and its 3 passives. Don't even really need Golem. 5+ minutes on Uber Duriel and think possibly 1 single skeleton warrior may have died.

And I thought that this game is all about making different builds and trying new stuff. I don't know if you have noticed but you can buy potions from vendors... or you can use shared stash so this is really not a good excuse.

Anyway, none of the issues you mentioned (except Teleport skill requires target -> which is intended) are present in the official RoT 0.3.0 HF1.
in my case, because I am located in China. and downloading huge files from "outside world" is almost impossible without VPN and network booster. So we would mostly download it from local cloud storage sites just like mega. However like in this case, sometimes extra stuff would be added to it along with localization work by local modders per their interest.
I didn't know what was added before I got the reply from you, and started to ask around in our chat groups. Again my apologies, Mr Ram.

Please keep up the hard work, we are really looking forward to its full realease, 2019 possible?

Always our utmost respect for you sir!
