Presumably the world is going to shift with Loot 2.0 and I thought I'd share my LS setup which took a looooong time to create. As Void pointed out, the 3.01 aps requires 11% dagger with 9s all around for the rest and trust me, it was extremely difficult to gather the items.
I suppose I could add more dps from rings but I've had my rings for a long time and like them. Thanks to the forum folks for inspiring me and helping me with some items - I check alot of your gear (quietly =P). Loot 2.0 may make this easy to achieve in future but as Peterbiz says a 400k CM wiz will still be a 400k CM wiz.
Off-topic - I was in the men_with_juggs twitch this morning and a new CM asked my opinion on our Turbo friend's setup of 490 dps. Sorry for not being able to outdps Turbo but he did have only 10 APOC, 461 LOH with no LS at 2.73 aps. In his defence, he carries a LS weapon and Apoc chant in his stash and swaps them when fighting single targets and RD respectively. You decide if you want to do that - I shared my opinion on the set-up on twitch (Dr Neuron was there as a Mod anyway) and directed him to our friendly forums and guides.

Have you thought about selling and trying to recoup some of the $ spent before loot 2.0 (presumably through hoarding gems as gold will probably be borderline worthless aside from crafting)? Would hate to have that many godly items just depreciate a la legacy gear.
Thanks all. It's been a long road to hit the 400k mark at 3.01. Things will no doubt change but I thought it would be nice to remember this build before Loot 2.0 and I'm contemplating just holding the IAS wand set but most of my pieces in this are used in that set anyway.
As usual Charlatan, your wizard is incredibly impressive.
With all the news coming out and changes coming up, are you planning to still keep on going? You've been a mainstay of "wizard to aspire to" for as long as I have been following this forum.
Yeah, I remember Boozor saying, a long time ago, that SC would be BIS....even before all of these sword/dagger builds started popping up. I think he envisioned this setup as the true endgame for the elite 1% of the 1%. As soon as you go dagger/sword...you need the APOC from SC...not to mention the elemental damage.
On Boozor we should all trust.

Doly, I have no clue to be honest. I'm waiting to see if Blizzcon gives further indicators. I think loot runs, clans/guilds and tougher critters with a new Act is exciting. But at the same time I won't be too impressed if loot becomes incredibly good and so easily available. I always felt for an online game, it should never be too easy. And I'm hoping they have a good way to trade because I hate to go to 3P sites to have to do this.
When I was studying to my early working days, I was playing Ultima Online and I played it for 7 years. And the only reason why it kept my interest was despite the graphics which got worse compared to new games each year, it was so hard to train 1 Char and to train 5 took me a few years. A Char had 720 points if I recall correctly and each skill had a max of 120 and each gain was 0.1 increments. It's not uncommon to spend 1 hour and gaining a whopping total of 0.2 or 0.3. It was so bad that they implemented an auto gain of 0.1 after every 24 hours within 10 mins of playing the Char and using the skill. 1 skill was called resist and the only way to gain it was to be targetted =P. Everything about it wasn't easy, getting daily rares, server births, buying a castle/keep, decor items, reagents, crafting was a nightmare. But that made it engaging and challenging.
So if it gets too carebear, then I'll probably leave and if they don't buff the legendaries too much (making my current gear still valuable), then you will see the Mother of Int Gear Sales. Abit like Ironwilly sale no.2.
