Diablo® III

Naabski's Full Glass Cannon RoF Spec

@Shark

Amulet: The Intel and crit chance on your amulet is very low, and you can def use to see that increase. If this is too expensive right now, then hold off until you can afford a really good one.

Rings: Work on searching for an upgrade for the ring on your left side (The 6% AS/2% CC one). Look for at least 3% crit chance and either crit damage, or you can still go with AS. Same as the amulet, if this is too expensive right now, then just hold off. No reason to make a small upgrade, save your money for a big one.

Weapon: The weapon you have is fairly decent. You have two options here. Option one would be to upgrade to a higher DPS weapon, even if it may not have dual crit damage, you can check Deity's calculator (linked at the bottom) to see how much DPS difference other weapons will have on your character. Option two would be to upgrade your gem to a 90% or 100%, you will see a very fair DPS increase from that, and it would be the simpler solution.

why does your profile show you being without gear? how am i to check out competition?


Hi Chinners! I am currently in the process of doing my 3 million gold Wizard challenge. This is where I stripped my gear off, and re-equipped myself with only 3 million gold. This includes my DPS gear, my MF gear, and gear for my followers. For some reason, Battle.net is not updating my character profile properly and all you can see is my helmet, amulet and ring.

You can check out my progress in the 3 mil gold challange on my stream at: twitch.tv/naabski

You have some very good equipment but I do see how you can improve it and get over 100k dps.

Shoulders: You have great shoulders, but in order to maximize from your other gear you should keep a lookout for similar shoulders that also add a lot of vitality, this way you can concentrate other parts of your gear on getting more crit chance and damage.

Amulet: Not having critical damage on your amulet is hurting your DPS even though you have a very nice amulet. Look for one with dual crit chance and damage, and replace the vitality you will lose on a different piece of equipment. If you can manage to get a dual crit amulet with vitality, then more power to you.

Gloves: Keep a lookout for good trifecta gloves, as you will see a huge increase of DPS from them even if they have less Intel.

Rings: Both of your rings can use an upgrade, especially your Screaming Chain, as it does not give any critical affixes at all. Search for dual crit rings, and this may take some time to find the perfect rings for this build for the right price.

Weapon: You can see an increase of damage here by going for more DPS on your weapon, or finding a similar one with Intel. You can search for passive crit damage or you can get an open socket and stick a nasty emerald in there.

Take your time searching the AH for these upgrades, there is no reason to rush, especially with 1.0.4 around the corner.

Hey Naab! Can't watch your stream today, work schedule changed. Have you beaten Ghom yet on your 3 mil challenge? :) I'll watch the recorded stream when I get home.

--- Little help with my gear, guess have to farm to get more gold kinda down to 2 mil :( Any suggestion would be appreciated so that I know what to aim/look for on my next upgrade.

Thanks! And more power to your channel.

Hey Naabski- Now I have to decide whether I want to main my DH or Wizard going forward with Paragon levels now, and my Wiz was geared for CM/WW which we all know is about to be nerfed- I can get to about 61K character sheet DPS with alternate gear in my bag with your spec but i hadnt had much success with it and Id like to try it again - what do you recommend gear wise? I can drop 441 LOH/ASI ammy for an ammy with 130+ Int and 59% crit damage.

Hi Naabski, would really like ur professional opinion :P

Can you please assess my gear and tell me the most cost efficient or quickest way to get to 100k DPS?
Reply Quote
Has anyone considered using forked lightning for AoE and RoF for single target DPS, and hydra for added DPS? Means you would sacrifice some DPS from sparkflint/force weapon, but would have much more effective AoE??

RoF lovers - check out this helm i have for sale:



[Ray of Frost] Helm 5:
443 Armor
+122 INT
+5% CritChance
+5% CritChance for Ray of Frost
Open Socket

Nothing like this on AH. +10% CritChance if ur main dmg spell is RoF. Think about how much you pay for 1% CC on other slots. Starting bid is 12M

I plan to do more reading in this thread after work (I took a minute to slack :P), but Naabski, if you get a moment, could you advise on what I should upgrade first (and with what)? I'm going to try this build out, since my current one doesn't work with my low DPS.

hey naab, thanks for the advice. finally got my dps to 100k.
but since the patch, ive seen a lot of wizards go over 200k dps. how do i get there? should really go skorn?

I would just like to say that Naabski has been a big help to my wiz.I only had 60k dps initially but I modeled most of my gears after his and I'm now sitting at 97k.Furthermore,he went out of his way to rate my equips even though he really wanted to sleep after a hard day of farming.

The man knows what he's doing,so appreciate his generosity of sharing with everyone.

Hey Naabski- i ran your build yesterday for the first (maybe second?) time and enjoyed it- do you have any advice for gear upgrades for me (other than they are damn expensive?) I have 94K DPS with Scoundrel and Pinpoint Barrier and would like to break 100K- thanks!!

You can do this, take Arcane Dynamo instead of Astral Presence if you do, and use RoF when you get a 5 stack.

Hi Naabski, could you take a look of my gear and see which one i'm gonna upgrade next?
