Diablo® III

Builds that you'd create...

Posts: 526
curious to see what builds you guys would create using the skills/abilities that you've seen thus far... if you dont know the name of the ability jsut describe it.

to get us started this would be the build for my mage

  • decintigrate (hope I'm spelling that right) for long range

  • mana armor (or mage armor, whichever its called) for defensive and because when you use it in conjunction with decintigrate it looks FREAKIN SICK

  • The thing where lightning shoots from ur fingertips at short range for frontal aoe for small groups of close targets

  • ray of frost (i think it is) with the rune that makes it do a circle around the wizard instead of a beam for if i get surrounded

  • and for passives, sry i forgot these but I'd use:

    glass cannon (increases damage by 20% but decreases armor by 20% as well)

    astral presence (increases arcane power by 20%)

    And probably unstable energy, which knocks back anyone it hits when you go under 20% health
    that or I'd use black ice (inc damage on frozen targets by 20%) or expert defense (inc defense by 20%) to make up for glass cannon

    My friends and I have been discussing stuff and our party will probably consist of Wizard (me), a Witch Doctor, and either 2 Monks or 1 Monk and 1 Barbarian. The Monk and Barb will obviously be up front soaking damage and WD pets will provide a lot of cannon fodder, allowing me to go towards a glass cannon build.

    I have a feeling that slow time/teleport will become a staple of most wiz builds. They seem REALLY good together.
