Since Schaeffer's proc is essentially Storm Armor, I was thinking of running something like this with either a high lightning skill damage LS schaeffer's or a Skorn: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/wizard#biQSTj!VdZ!bZYcaa
Basically, the idea is to do enough damage and use lifesteal to stay alive until I afk-kill my attackers when combined with regen. Is this a doomed notion without prismatic armor and Diamond Skin?
Also, how would one go about levelling a HC wizard? I know next to nothing about the class, so any guides/tips would be greatly appreciated.
Edit: fixed incorrect build link
