yodatoy:I'm just going by what tek recommended. According to tek, MF is better than shock for meteor. What is default attack?
It is. Shocking Aspect is still very good damage, and it's good when you're using Wicked Wind. But Shocking Aspect simply doesn't return the dividends when you're Meteor spamming. Blood Magic is the best way to survive RD without having to resort to a lifesteal weapon, which hits your DPS if you want to maintain 30APoC.
The thing is simply put that Magic Weapon is as good, or better, when you're Meteor spamming. And that's simply because the procs of Meteor are just so much lower than with Wicked Wind. Wicked Wind is an anomaly that Shocking Aspect is so strong. Now Shocking Aspect is still good and deals a bit more DPS than Blood Magic, but if you take into account that you're gaining sustain, it's a pretty good trade. Ideally, you shouldn't be spamming Wicked Wind except sparingly, and I agree with Dolynick that ideally you should be able to graduate to just spamming only Meteor. It's a bit more tenuous on singles, but there are definite dividends, since you can run a skill that's always useful (i.e. Teleport or Shocking Aspect).
I still personally prefer to have a secondary. And my favorite build is still a Shockquefy (Meteor/SNS) hybrid, so I still prefer to rely on just LoH and switch to Wicked Wind as I please. The thing I despise about Meteor is the casting delay. I have died so many times due to taking a damage spike that I find myself often running Safe Passage. And to me it's a toss-up whether the mobility+defense of Safe Passage is superior to the raw power+ap regen of Wicked Wind. If I'm speed farming Teleport is clearly better, but farming elites seems smoother with Wicked Wind.
Boozor:Use deep freeze helps with apoc.
Losing storm armor is huge DPS loss.
For sustain? Just get a weak LS weap to try it out instead.
I agree on Deep Freeze, but Storm Armor isn't as huge a DPS loss as you'd think. That's carry-over thinking from SNS. In fact, most Magic Weapon runes appear to out-DPS Shocking Aspect in Meteor spamming builds, especially if you're not using Liquefy. The procs are functionally about half what they are in SNS with Liquefy spamming, and even worse with Molten Impact. That ends up meaning Shocking Aspect is still good, but other competitive choices becoming interesting. Loroese also mentioned the same thing, so it's not just me saying it. :
That said, I strongly encourage you to test it out. That's the best way to convince yourself. And if you find different results, I'm VERY interested. Just try to avoid Ghom, since Ghom is horrible for testing peformance on the more typical multi-target situations. Heck, if I could get any of you guys to test this stuff with pure Meteor spamming I'd be over-joyed. Sometimes I feel like I'm out in the wilderness without any of my wizard buddies to cross-check the robustness of my results. :lol
