Thanks for a great guide which made me change spec when nothing else really worked out for me on Wizard HC. Now I can farm without the risk of dying on every champ pack. I bought gear yesterday and am currently trying to learn the spec and practising on some mp1 act 1 (since im familiar with that area, will go on to act 3 when i feel safe)
Im interested in your opinion about my gear and stats, if there are any clear "errors" on it and if you have any ideas to obvious upgrades. I followed your guide while gearing, and it worked great!
Im also interested in your opinion about followers, It seems alot of people are playing in group but im mostly on my own, which follower would you recommend? Im currently going with a full cc enchantress with a Maximus weapon but considering switching to an Azurewrath for ever more freezing in the battles.
My nick is Alista#2575 and Im on the EU-server.
Thanks in advance!
Hi to all you CM Wizards out there. I have been trying to work hard on my CM/WW set but it is far from easy going. I started out small but have progressed to the following stats:
Self buffed with Prismatic Armor only:
535-620 res all
40% crit chance
466 Life on hit
Reduce dmg taken from elites by 13%
24% Movement speed (quite helpful)
I have not left MP0 yet, and to be honest, if I allow Diamond Skin to fall off, I take damage fairly quickly..even from white monsters.
I am afraid to attempt ubers on MP5 or even leave MP0 yet for that matter as I suspect 1-2 mistakes means sudden death with my Wizard's current stats.
Can anyone offer some advise on how to bring my Wizard to the next level? I feel as though I need more resist all and total life, however doing that and simultaneously maintaining my attack speed and crit chance proves very difficult.
I considered possibly dropping Tals Armor in favor of a Blackthornes Chest (to complete my 2pc set bonus)and using a 1.65 attack/sec Chantodos instead of my 1.61, but that switch costs me 10-20k dmg depending on the wand I use. I could then use Ice Climbers instead of my terrible BT boots and boost my stats that way, but it costs me quite a bit of damage (and is a very expensive adjustment)
Bump - Read through this thread, great guide, fun build, and lots of solid information.
Looking forward to getting my CM/WW wiz going in 1.07 or when I get a bit more gold !
Any thoughts on CM Meteor? Something about standard CM doesn't gel for me, feels slow for clearing trash getting to champs/elites and I always feel like a momentary lapse will get me killed.
Always loved meteor, but I suspect it isn't viable in HC without some crazy gear...
