So here's my story tl;dr version:
-I started out like everyone else. Random unoptimized build having fun etc.
-Moved into archon build when its style became defined and after D3 received multiple updates to gameplay/gear/classes/etc
-Transitioned into fulltime CM/WW upon release of ubers -- transition only required picking up a cheap chant's set and exchanging some CD on jewelry for IAS.
-Upgraded slowly into a pretty solid SNS wiz -- fully equipped to carry MP10 ubers, etc
NOW I'm looking back at archon much more lately. I've dusted off some archon pieces and I've even bought a new Skorn in exchange for a nice drop yesterday off A3 farming (while in archon, go figure).
I'm finding that I can do MP3 really really easily and comfortably in my current archon setup. However, moving to MP4, it starts to feel a bit slower. Whites still die quickly, and elites do too...BUT...it seems like elites take just long enough for it to maybe not be efficient. So, is there some standard out there by which to determine in which MP it is correct for someone to run archon? I.e. "400K sheet DPS + 4K unbuff armor + 40CC = 95% likely to handle MP4 without problems efficiently" etc

LOL, well played ching =P
@Yumcatz : especially when the female wiz says "I'm so good, I astound myself." or "Your defenses are NOTHING !" feel like a BAWSE !
P.S. to ching, is your barb's hellfire the reason you stick to barb recently ? =P nice rolled brah
12/04/2012 07:20 AMPosted by DemosthenesI have zero APOC, so this cause some issues on refresh. I just don't want to gimp myself AND pay out the nose when living lightning does the trick. Been playing with prodigy and wicked wind on top of the living lightning lately and it works very well, but I have to drop galvanizing ward for scramble and diamond skin. Anyone have any suggestions for non-APOC archon wiz?
