If I get a group with a good monk that can keep mobs together I have no problems. But it's those games where there isn't a monk or barb or they die as quick as I do that's the problem.
For aoe and trash I'm using http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/wizard#UcXSOR!YXf!YYa.Y
And for bosses http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/wizard#UZXSOm!YXf!Yba.Yb
I'm level 54 with about 13k hp (low I know) and 5900 dps. My weapon is a 2h crossbow that's 297 dps with 190 int on it but I have a 1h with 248 dps and 107 int with an oh that has 38-90 damage 64 int, 113 vit but I can't use til level 55.
I've been leveling my artisan's until i found out its not worth it til later when you can afford it so I'm pretty broke and most armor on the ah that's better than mine costs 25k or more and I can't afford more than 2-3 pieces at that price.
If anyone has any advice feel free to let me know and comment on my builds and see if there is anything I can change that will help me live longer without sacrificing my damage too much. Thanks in advanced.
