Any Weapon For Wizard?


I have searched but can't find anything on this. Is there any real reason to use Staves or Wands? I have swords that have higher stats & use them for my wizard. Why would Blizzard allow Wizards to hold a Sword?, or atleast use it's states for spells.

Can anyone explain?

some staves and wands (randomly!) can have wizard boosting stats, like extra mana. Most are exactly the same as a sword. My wizard has a 1h axe that has +35 or so int on it. The damage of the weapon seems to improve the damage of your spells, by the way, so you want a high dps weapon with int and maybe vit or health, and a socket for extra damage or something.

I find this just wrong. I have a monk that hits with his fist, but uses a sword for the stats. Sorry, IMO that's stupid.

At one point, my wizard was using a crossbow. Yep a crossbow because it was the best stats of the items I had. Personally, I like the variety of weapons I can use and that it's always changing. I am currently using a wand and a magic source offhand but that's because I found a blue off hand with 148+ dmg (at lvl 54).

Well, I recall from D2 that there we're weapons that held class-specifict attributes, lie +1 Skeleton Rise for Necro or some...

Here at D3 i've fount staff and wands that (mostly all of them) increases maximun Mana (or magic power...)

I wander if there will be more usefull atts on later items... also wander if there will be armor sets.! (legacy dictates that...! cmon blizz.)

you can find rare staves with pretty much the same dps as 2 handed weapons.
So you dont have to look retarded.

But currently, my wiz is using a flaming 2-handed samurai sword. And even though its a 2 handed sword it looks cool as hell on my wiz
