I have a nice and steady wizard, but unfortunately i can't build his skills to save my life in a way that suits my gear. If anyone would mind helping me out that would be greatly appreciated. I have my other characters set, just not my wizard :-(
Dear Mr. Wizard,
We have two commonly used builds:
The "SNS" CM build:
This spec is deadly, however it requires a high echelon of gear to be effective in. Usually players starting out will use crystal shell instead of shards on DS and possibly prismatic w/ pinpoint instead of shocking aspect. Making this sub out reduces eDPS drastically but its better to have the mitigation first and build the DPS abilities in gradually.
The "Perma Archon" build
If you can get a trium with APOC run wicked wind instead of living lightning. If survivability is an issue run energy armor - prismatic instead of storm armor - shocking aspect. You could also use teleport on archon.
That is a good starting place for you, pick one that you want to gear for, come back on here and we can tell you what equip to look for (and what to swap out right now)
The gear is pretty decent. You could do a lot with it. Your build is meh. All over the place and way too oriented to offensive skills. Also, you don't have the crit chance to make Forked Lightning, Meteor Liquify, and Shocking Aspect work better than non-crit needing alternatives. Paralysis is also a useless passive (description says "up to 8% chance" but you you'll never see that 8%).
Needs some defense and utility skills and it needs focus. You need to decide on 2 attack skills Since you like Electrocute and Meteor we'll stick with just those two.
Chain Lightning will do more damage to more enemies consistently.
Molten Impact is the Big Rock for damage. Initial impact has 130% more punch than Liquify and that's worth more than 2 more seconds of "damage over time" damage.
You could play this build two ways:
Run up to enemies. Freeze Them. Drop a Rock on Them. Electrocute them. Then GTFO with teleport or put your diamond skin on if you need to repeat.
Stand as far back as possible. Drop a Rock then Electrocute (that order is important to keep them from charging you and the rock from missing). Then use Diamond Skin and Teleport to make sure you stay alive and fight longer.
For the record... I love rocks.
I appreciate the insight. I have written down all of these and will play around and see which one i like the most. Although Chain Lightning and Meteor are a massive favorite, i want a character like my others that just simply puts a holy **** response on others like i see with other wizards. Thanks again for the help :-)
