Diablo® III

getting stunned to death in pvp..

Do we have any legit build to do simular? Because barbs just throw axes to me and stun me, and monks stun me and i cant brake it. Stun lasts till i die which takes about 3-5sec.

wot the crap is this?

your best best is to use frost nova to freeze them and hope that your freeze lasts longer than their stun.

Yeah CM/WW wiz is not very good. I've had very limited success with it. The biggest issue with CM/WW wiz is not Frost Nova per sey, but rather than you have only one shot at it and it's difficult to bring down the cooldowns. My monk on the other hand was just completely owning with Sledge Fist + Butcher's Sickle (break stun with serenity and sleezing Fist of Thunder to close distance).

What about mirror image with stun rune? Think that might be a good skill to try out?

I have no interest in pvp, but the theory crafting is always fun. :)

For the record. Wizards are OP in PVP. I was downing the best of monks just now. I'll share my build later. But you guys can probably use your brain and figure it out. Just ask urself what u wouldnt want to fight against.

storm armor
hydra
illusionist
mirror image
unstable anomaly

Seeker Missile
Wormhole/Fracture Teleport
Duplicant Mirror Images
Stretch Time
Crystal Diamond Skin
Storm Armor - Scramble or Thunderstorm
+ Illusionist, Temporal Flux, Unstable Anomaly

Works like a charm for the majority of situations.

Mirror Images can tank monk Seven-Sided Strike and can tank a few DH Strafe hits; but most importantly, breaks impairing effects. Teleport is especially necessary to escape monk Wave of Light and barb Ancient Spear. Stretch Time is phenomenal for harassing with Seeker Missile and also to stop chasers. Diamond Skin is self-explanatory. Storm Armor is perhaps one of the most OP abilities in PvP.

Illusionist is a must. Temporal Flux is insane with Seeker Missile. Unstable Anomaly is more useful than you think.

isn't blizzard better than slow time (cos of cd)

Yes, you can control where to land Blizz, Slow time sucks really. No way to reset that cooldown.

getting hit will reset it via illusionist, its pretty awsome vs ranged like other wizzy or dh useless vs mellee, then wof is much better choice.

i just love the lightning hydra that with thundertorm gets u so many kills while u can concentrate on staying alive, ill ditch ds for it anytime.

Why stretch time when you can use Time Shell?
