2. Hellfire ring because you are plvl1
3. amulet - work in all resist here maybe.

@Scottw, there are a number of places to go here. I would be looking at a higher int / vit shoulders, or a socketed MH depending on your funds.

As for mine i'm currently running archon on mp5 without too many problems. I'm currently saving up for a 8+ crit chance neck with high CD, AS, and int. Obviously expensive but the more crit the better. Am I saving for the right thing?

I'm pretty new to wiz and I don't know anything really when it comes to archon builds so if the next person could help me and Shaymous both out that would be awesome!

@DickWhittman belt and amulet can upgrade cheaply, if you are gonna run shocknado you should look for more damage mitigation in the replacements.

@shaymous
lol i dunno, nice gear. you could almost get more damage out of zuni over tal's?

@DonDraper - Hm for archon i'd get a nonapoc source! Pay like a 10th of the price for something 5x more DPS LOL! Or Depth Diggers a lot of int, sockets, life and 70-80AR|MF guaranteed

@Shaymous - Idk, prob a CC tals ammy like closer to 10%

Pretty sexy gear, but bit low on the CC for my tastes @ 46 via your profile.

Also, armor is bit low, can't run storm armor which is big DPS loss..

Anyway to work more Armor into build to lose energy armor? That would be my next issue to address with your build.

It looks like there are a number of pieces you chose because of high AS/CC but low int. I guess you can try to work some more int into boots, gloves, or ring while maintaining AS/CC.

Your armor is non-existence. You can find it in chest/belt/pants/bracers. Triumvirate could use an upgrade.

Hehe sure, I love MF :P

@Inspy - I'm not sure, what you've got outranks mine far enough that it seems like you don't need to get much better. Great dps, solid survivability. Maybe replace something with a bit higher armor/resistance, but nothing huge.

Cleros, more crit chance. Which is going to suck a bit cause all your pieces right now are decent.

You are at 2.7aps, the next breakpoint up is 2.73 and the one below is 2.5

I suggest you swap your lacunis for some rare bracers with 5-6 CC.
That will drop your aps to 2.56 so you will still be at the same breakpoint but will help a lot with your crits.

That helm! Why anyone without the full Tal's set bonus uses the Tal's helm is beyond me.

Go Andy's for a more glass cannon build
Go Mempo for a more defensive build
Go Storm Crow for a APoC reliant build

I am trying to be a CM wiz but I am really having problems locking things down on anything higher than MP7. I have been reading over the forums and I am not really sure what I need to change. Any suggestions on gear would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I am pretty sure that you should pick coldsnap. Thats what I do and freezing everything is much more manageable.

Jesus you have a lot of vitality. holy hell. You should go with an AR tal rasha's persuit next.

You need some APC on your items (it doesn't look like you have any). I currently have 10 and can barely lock down elite packs. Im looking on increasing that to 20.

@Nio

Oops. Nm, you do have some APoC on the wand. maybe look to get 10 more?

@QuickPickle

Tal Rasha's Allegience. If you can afford. Besides being good, you'll get that 3% bonus to your main as well.

Shoulders invest in a vileward, you will never look back. Upgrade gems to highest possible you can make.
start trying to improve your crit, but also try maintain the resistance.

Inna's temperance would set you up good. And maybe a triumverate to go with your black weapon.
