Diablo® III

Aggressive PvP Builds



Hmm this got me thinking:

-Teleport
-Frost Nova (3 seconds of freeze, %30 CC resistance to the opponent)
-In those 3 seconds, cast EB (chain reaction sounds better since they're going to be frozen for the full 3 seconds) and spam the hell out of your left click spell, whatever it might be.
-Right after the freeze wears off (need to time this right), cast WoF.
-WoF stuns for 2 seconds but because of the CC reduction, it will stun for 1.4 seconds.
-Now the enemy is far away (unless they were cornered) and teleport is on cooldown.
-If the opponent still didn't die from the WoF, not much you can do there unless you're using a ranged skill. The 1.4 second stun will probably wear off before you can run towards the opponent. Storm armor might be a good idea to still deal some damage.

Any further opinions?


we also have to account for ap costs, were to used to sns unlimited ap.

tp: 15
fn: free
eb: 20 = 35

-30 ap reg back in fn freeze time: so if we reserve wofs 25 ap, thats 30 spent. we would have around 70-80 ap to spam during freeze and after wof.

could be something channeled, meteor, ao, etc... your choice. not much for 4 sec spamming hard hitters, could fit in a starpact before n after wof or 4 tap the source aos.


Meteor sounds good actually, especially since you can cast it where they land after WoF. Spamming shouldn't be a problem with the correct gear setup, maybe even a skill that builds AP could be used.

i think tap the source might be better option

meteor x2 260% = %520
tap the source ao 4x 200% = %800

i dont think so besides the armours or magic weapon runes. maybe u could tp in combo (hit the 2 keys at once) short fuse with wof and then finish him off with something like molten while he is stunned. problem would be hitting the molten if he has any cc breaker.

With the exception of barbs, its impossible to freeze anyone cos of cc breakers.

tried this just now, works quite well, especially against multiple targets:

-Disintegrate - Chaos Nexus (monks cant really dodge this and its work well with Temporal Flux) very good to snare enemies from far
-Teleport - Reversal
-Mirror Image - Duplicates
-Familiar - Ancient Guardian or Diamond Skin - Mirror Skin
-Storm Armor - Thunderstorm
-Hydra - Arcane Hydra (for Runner Barbs)

-Unstable Anomaly
-Temporal Flux
-Illusionist

Hydra and Thunderstorm is actually enough to kill, but for DH or WD that goes invisible, chaos nexus will instantly homing them when they come out..
