History (can skip) : 1.0.2 - 1.0.4, do you know that only players with high budget can build an archon ? Because it's hard to sustain an archon unless u have 100k DPS with LS weapon (BM rune not working those days) and gears were much more expensive. While at that time CM/WW need so much less requirement than today so it was more viable for new wizards and they're unarguably strong ! With the tide of 1.0.5, eventhough CM/WW got nerfed hard they become stronger and more valuable because of ubers hunting. While archon gears are much more affordable and archon's seen as a "low mp level farming".
I just want to create a thread for "REAL ARCHON LOVERS", for those who focus mainly in archon (but can still play CM/WW as an alternative, see below). Since our population is just a minority now, I want to see new-face and old-face archons who're still around. Also, this club is always opened for newbie players for information and tips :)
If anyone wants a tip to change to CM/WW as an alternative build you can ask me, I'm at 140k DPS 2.76 APS 4k armor 700 AR 44k HP(with vit gem) in CM/WW and doing high MP just fine. Need just a little budget depends on your archon gears.
Alas, we're not just "low mp xp farming" we can do more than that !! shout out !!

MP 7 perma scramble : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1X-Ijx6eaM - Here is what I've been trying to prove that archon is not only viable for low MP level :) We're potentially the best farming build for wiz at the moment I'd say
Also looking forward that some pro archons like samII(Phi), Akasha, Stever, Sinfull, Schenko7 and etc. (sorry for those I've forgotten) will give advice to new archons :) and their experience in high MP farming.
