Storm chasers can always hope

I assume you are talking about Unrelenting Storm/sleet storm which is so OP it isn't even funny. I mean, mobs always stand still for 8 seconds, and while they do, you can get them with your super close range channeled spell! Lets chase that storm indeed!


Yep. Thread is about new OP Sleet Storm build. We managed to keep it under wraps until today thanks to Wiz Club. But now, Blizz is nerfing it as we speak.

No need for thread to lament. Build was dead before it even got its 1.05 legs.

No hope for Sleet-stormers.

dont laugh its dmg is perfect during those first couple of seconds of uninterrupted freeze time, if ur working with another freeze wiz, elites melt so fast when u use sleet storm, its y i didnt bother making any big cm upgrades, all i gotta do is hold elites for 6 seconds, while my farmin buddy melt them down

It's all about skill, of course. The trick is to micro-kite, abusing the mighty chill effect! Then you take an arrow to the knee and die, but that's just how we roll.

honestly if sleet storm had even slightly the same sucking in effect as cyclone strike, it would be really really fun and interesting and I would bust my ice trying to make a build around it... But that would encourage build diversity, so we can't have that.

They need to change how Sleet Storm works... I think what they could/should do to it is instead of making it have such a short range, make it spit out low damage ice bolts in all directions while keeping the high damage short range effect, essentially turning it into a sort of stationary version of Frozen Orb from D2. I think that would be cool...

Have ppl not learned over the countless nerfs not to blab about stuff on the forums. How do you think meteor got nerfed before patch was released?

OP please change title if u arent able to delete. Call it easy bake oven or something. Anything other than what it is now

What's the point now? 1.05 is being released today, its not like they are going to go back and re-patch the game for one skill. If it wasn't picked up in PTR then it'll probably work when it goes live. Now its just a question of when they decide to hotfix it.

^ love your other posts, but i don't think you understand what the OP initially posted about.

And what's the point in being secretive? Buying time to get even more invested in a build before the nerf eventually comes? If they hadn't nerfed Meteor at 1.0.5, they'd have nerfed it in 1.0.6 after seeing how every CM wizard had simply replaced SC by Star Pact.
