Diablo® III

OP co op Wizard hell/inferno build

Me and my friends been playing D3 since launch date and my Wizard friend found amazing build that makes hell face roll and Inferno a bit easy. Basically it ensures that all mobs are always frozen and can never attack anybody. Here is a link to his youtube video that explain the build and how to use it

That is correct. He found that build, likely on these very forums. Many people are aware of this build already, but I'm sure some will appreciate your re-posting it.

With that said, this build still works great today, even in Inferno. Unfortunately this build is only viable and quick against larger groups of enemies. Open with Frost nova on 5+ enemies, spam Energy Twister and use Diamond Skin & Frost Nova as they become available. The build is based on critting to regain arcane power. You should also consider obtaining 1 piece of gear that regenerates Arcane Power on crit (5-8 is sufficient; you don't need much).

Also, don't use this build. If too many people begin to use it, it will go against Blizzards belief of there being multiple viable builds. If too many people are looking up "best" build online, and then using them, expect changes/nerfs from Blizzard.

This is not a repost lol, as you can see I am posting this because my friend doesn't read or post on forums. That being said I agree, I see a nerf INC and this is only good with large set of mobs. And for the person who tried this solo, this build works really really well in co op

I have 33.50% base crit atm, 38.50% with Pinpoint. Using a similar build to this.

How do you move the spells from the diff category to another key? Frost Nova and Thick Skin are in the same spell type and I can't figure out how to adjust that.

Funny enough, I saw another wizard in my game earlier owning with this build, but she wouldn't tell me what she was running. Thankfully, you can always go into your recently played list and check out their build/spec =D
I was trying to emulate it, and it seemed to kind of work for me, things like desecrate/plague seems to destroy me, though.

Does energy twister crit, though? I tried it out a bit and didn't see any crits from it so I changed it to a hydra, I guess that is what I am doing wrong.

It does crit, but the number color seems to stay white.
Not sure about Venom Hydra.

I'm using this atm: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/wizard#VRYXgO!gYf!YbYaZZ
Started Inferno earlier today, I do fine so far. Actually managed to kill some shielding elites, thinking I wouldn't be able to, surprised myself. With Desincrate/Plague, you need to move a lot.

This build has been around for a few days. It doesn't work for 40-50% of elite mobs on inferno simply because either not enough enemies to crit as much, or shielded enemies cannot crit at all. Whenever you meet these enemies you need to switch builds which cancels your valor stack...

Thats a given, you can't expect to use one build for the whole game. Need to switch builds depending on the enemy your fighting. This build works wonders in Act 3 of hell
