Wizard will be OP in PVP> you wait and see.

With CM gear or something else entirely?

All CM build will just swap wicked wind for seeker missile and get about 2k LoH. It'll be pretty nice with 3 seekers per second and 2k life for each hit XD. Time bubble will also be a very nice if not OP skill. We also don't know how the scaling will be in pvp so archon the first thing you do may be a killer.

Or why not change explosive blast+wicked wind for living lightning and seeker and keep the rest of the CM skills? Living lightning profit alot from LoH and will prolly be you best and most trusted cooldown resetter :)

If you hit 3x magic missiles and you have 2000 life on hit that does not mean you get 6,000 life.... The proc rate comes into play here which is the %chance you will get your life on hit (that percent is very bad). Try it out. Life regen is a much much better alternative. If you have 2,000 LPS you don't have to worry about that proc rate.

im thinking the best way to go is slow time and teleport cuz illusionist will proc slow time after patch. also arcane orb is getting buffed so im gonna run around doing arcane orbs with lots of supporting skills

The proc rate for Magic Missle (Seeker) is 1.0, so it's 100% chance to draw your full LoH. Only the Split and Penetrating Blast runes for Magic Missle aren't 1.0. Now you're generally right that proc rates are important to consider for most wizard skills, but a few runes of Magic Missle aren't reduced at all.

yep was gona point that out tekkzero, 1.0 proc in mm means all loh and apoc back.... i already have my 6-30 mm soj ready :D

have also taken the chance to buy an eppeen stick (1090 dps 85cd os sword) now that they arent too expensive, not endgame though but cheap dps, as ls is not gona be needed for archon anymore... should probably sale my ls skorn too.
