Diablo® III

300,000 DPS Wizard gets owned

I have spent so many hours building my wizard, fights every night with my wife, farming like a champion 8 hours a day, trading, power running and yet still get dominated by reflect. It just does not feel right the amount of time I have put in. I will not go 2 hander cause a wizard does not play that game.

U know when I look at your profile, firstly, I look at your weapon. No LS, nuff said.

Not to mention All resist and armor super low. Go 200k DPS and make everything more balance. There's no shortcut bro. You want a high DPS broken wizard or a balanced wizard ?

And build... u run shocking aspect with archon as a core... O_o I have no idea man, u need to read more threads in this forum X_X

No LS. Sorry man. DPS is nice, but I think life steal on my Chantodos is much better than whatever crazy high crit damage.

Becouse I can do MP10 very comfortly, and I know that it's just becouse of that little life steal.

With LS u can fight whatever, Siegebreaker has reflect too, it's a shame that Chantodos wand cannot roll both LS and crit damage. World of sanctuary is not perfect. :-P

It's simply a matter of armor/resist and LoH. That's with CM build, in other cases LS is probably the way to go. Unlike barbs though, us wizards are forced to get it on a weapon.. Speaking of that, where is our LS passive?!

You need 2 weapons, you need your OS chants and a life steal chants that you use for reflect mobs. You don't have to have only one weapon.

turn blur on and if that doesn't cut it, get a source of ls.

He already wrote that he aimed for max DPS.

Transformation will be easy - just LS weapon.

But still, more work on armor etc. is needed.

Change Force Weapon to Blood Magic

Change Glass Cannon to anything Not Glass Cannon.

You will have a much better time, remember glass cannon is increasing your RD twice, once for the damage buff you get, and once for the increased damage you take.

Your problem (like lots of other people have said) is that the only mitigation you're running is about 600 loh with around 300k dps, so when you tear into a reflect mob you're effectively nuking yourself, especially on higher mp levels. Life steal would be so much better for you. Barring that, you're looking at having to sub in diamond skin which isn't even useful when you're in archon mode.

Keep glass cannon, it is good damage. He's an archon, he should drop shocking aspect for pinpoint barrier or some other energy armor rune.

Blood magic is of course great, but mainly he just needs a LL weapon. Clearly he can afford one. It is like he tried to build the character that would get raped the hardest by reflect, and then complained when he did.
