New to HC...Looking for Wiz builds

Just rolled my first HC hero...and I'm looking for advice on builds... are there any threads already out there that u can point to? Been through several pages (just looking to know if there are some specific threads

I've read some good basic HC philosophy threads and have already incorporated the comments into my play....BTW almost lost last night when i got jailed by A1 KW hit me with jailer, spear and fireball....did my best and ran away to fight another day....

My two main heros in SC I are barb par 50 and wiz par 32...

You having leveled a Wizard to p32, I assume you're more knowledgeable about the class than I am.

That said, if I were to build a HC Wizard right now, I'd go with:

Good offense, good defense, and an escape.

Edit1: Blizzard and Unstable Anomaly are getting buffed in 1.07, so that's even better.

As a hardcore Wizard, just know that Diamond Skin, Energy Armor, and Teleport are NEVER leaving your skillset.

Most HC Wizards either go Critical Mass spec or one of a hundred variations of a kiting build.

Most popular kiting build seems to be your 3 primary defensives + the following:

Shock Pulse/Piercing Orb
Hydra/Arcane or Venom
