Testing lots of different stuff on PTR

------------------------------------------------------------------

The basic build is:
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/wizard#VYkNhO!RibZ!ZcZbcc

I'm using full firebird. I used RoRG to exclude the hat/shoulder, in order to complete aughild's set (hat +shoulder) + strongarm. Aughild's is the defensive choice. Firebird hat with magefists or hexing pants would be the offensive choice. In greater rifts, I'm more worried about defense though frankly, so I'm using aughild's.

RoRG + SoJ/unity rings. Ammy is star of azkaranth with acceptable fire damage stats. Belt is string of ears for survival in GRs, or harrington in T6.

My stats with this gear equipped are:

1m sheet, 1.7m fire, 2.5m fire-elite
50% CDR
15m toughness (prismatic)

I can't watch the stream right now, but the Woh/Firebird combo was the first thing I thought of (with excitement) when I saw the huge EB buff in the latest patch notes.

How is it so far? Game breaker or let down?

Damage output is about 3x what you get with a regular chainpocalypse build on live. It is close to pet doctor damage output levels.

Wow... that is way better than what I had hoped for.

What's the ideal gear permutation now? Firebird/Aughild? I've gotta start playing my wiz again... I've got full firebirds but many of the pieces are sub-par... need to take advantage of Kadala before the supposed nerf goes live.

Is there any way for us to see your gear setup on PTR?

Not that I know of. I suppose I could equip the same stuff on my regular realm wiz, but I've re-rolled it all on test, and I'm not about to do that on live. As a stopgap I've listed my gear and approximate stats in the OP.

I can't wait till this goes live. The firebird synergy with EB is too sweet.

I'm so pissed that my WOH rolled natural socket now... ugh.

As gorgenstone says, to increase my fire damage. The mirrors cast it a lot, and theirs work. I don't even cast it myself much at all.

Can somebody do me a favor and test something along those lines?

http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/wizard#RNYSkh!iZbh!cccc.Z

mirror for spell steal stack and intensify for 15% and shields from deflection

it lacks teleport and the passives could be modified, dont know what you'd chose here for t6 as i don't know the woh melee builds

wont do more dmg than firebird im just curious

thx!

Offline for sleep time. Probably more testing (this build and others) tonight or tomorrow.

You don't actually cast gale force. It is just on your bar so that the mirrors do it.

Yeah, my gear isn't T6 on either my wiz or my pet doc but the gear levels are comparable. I agree the damage feels roughly similar although the pet doc has VASTLY better mitigation for obvious reasons.
