very nice. but i got some questions:
- ray of frost 'cold blood' and electrocute share the same mechanism no? both of 'em 0 arcane casting...
- since frost nova grants 0% damage, and pretty close range, i think it'll be dangerous for wizzy

my cold wizard will be like this

or with galvanizing ward

Ray of Frost with Cold Blood is 12 AP in the beta. The 0 casting cost on the calculator tool-tip is a display bug.

Here is mine: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/wizard#cPjQif!YWf!YZYYYa

At first it may seems that there is too much arcane consuming spells (meteor, hydra and blizzard), but here are my explanations:

-Got rid of magic missile, because ray of frost with cold blood is free. No need for 2 free spells, i'll just spam ray of frost instead.

-Got rid of mirror image and put fracture rune on teleport. Since it's a frost mage it will already be really easy to kite ennemies.

-While it may seem that meteor+hydra+blizzard is overkill, it think that they complement each others very well: Blizzard is the main spell used, which makes the meteor harder to kite. Hydra is used when the ennemy is too close from you, since you can just cast it and run away/run around.

No it's because you are not lvl60. The numbers displayed by the calculator are all lvl60 numbers.

I like your cold build, but i think you could use teleport or some other defensive spell to help you out replacing Cold armor... you are already slowing everyone down with all your other spells, are you really going to find yourself being hit by melee attackers all that often?
Possibly, but i personally would atleast get teleport of some kind replacing Cold armor.

The calculator no longer contains the statement that the runes reflect any particular level. That went away with the new rune system.


The Cold Blood tool-tip is bugged on the calculator just like the Resentful Spirit rune for the Witch Doctor's Haunt spell is bugged on the calculator.

Edit: It is also worth mentioning that the calculator is a fair bit outdated in the first place.

Are you really sure that the runes have the same stats regardless of your level?

It is a reported bug. It's 12AP with that rune, not 0.

This is my "Frost Build" which is actually very similar to what you've got there.

Instead of Frost Nova for my defense, I picked Slow Time. I feel it will be very helpful plus runed it adds damage to all enemies affected.

Instead of Meteor/Comet, I chose Blizzard.

Ice Armor I made Energy Armor for the level 60 rune *Adds +40% to all Resistances*. Resistance was very important in D2.

All I can tell you for certain is that the runes no longer have ranks, and that they do not change one iota from the time you get them in the beta to level 13.
