Diablo® III

Stuck on NM Act 3

I can't get passed the teleporting things with the swords and the tongue demons. Every single time I find a pack of those I die instantly. I'm just helpless against them. I can't run and I can't stand there and fight. God forbid there's a champion pack of them.

I'm using http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/wizard#iYXOjS!aUX!ZZZaaZ as my build. I have 14,612 life, 1968 armor (45% damage reduction) and 1939 damage.

What am I doing wrong to fail at NM...

I personally would drop energy armor and use hydra instead. That way you can just kite while your hydras kill everything.

I can't kite though. The Hulking Phasebeasts and Soul Rippers teleport to me and just destroy me instantly. I've tried Hydra and I just die faster.

There are some packs that are just harder on us than others.

That said, most all of us who have to kite use a hydra of some kind. I prefer the venom hydra myself.

I'm in Act II hell and I only have Diamond Skin with Crystal Shell is as my Savior spell using the rest for offensive. I'm an Arcane Missile and Orb user.

The only thing I can add that might help is to upgrade your weapons and get your dps up some since it looks like you have enough health.

Why do so many people use disintegrate? Use arcane orb, spam your ap while running away and refreshing venom hydra. Turn and tank whenever diamond skin is up, wear them down and kill them that way.

Most mobs seem to ignore the Images...

I'll try Hydra again but I feel like it doesn't help with the teleporting/leaping people. It definitely helps on bosses though.

Disintegrate does an absurd amount of damage that's why. I would try Arcane Orb but I only have two handed weapons atm and it's just too slow with two handed weapons...
