Diablo® III

How much gold do I need to make a CM Wiz?

We are forced to choose. If you can get a rare amulet with near 100% CD you can use an IAS chants wand and a CC/CD/LoH amulet and still meet your needs.

The highest dps is trying to pull off something like mine, where you use near max IAS everywhere and a max 1.65 socket chants. Much much harder and expensive to do. Tends to result in slightly more DPS in the end however (if you can get IAS as well as CD on your amulet).

Generally the wiz consensus if your on a budget is to run an IAS wand. That way you can skip lacuni completely. Makes meeting the CC/AR/Armour requirements so much easier. The only thing you give up is DPS.

Extremely fast wormhole SNS farming of MP7 can be done at like 150k dps though. I dont see any reason why 1-1.2b couldn't get you to that point with ease.

IAS Wand + Storm Crow. And then you can use a high DPS high EHP Chant Source. The result is excellent, and amazingly cheap. I used it for a very long time before I could afford a Mempo or lacuni.

@OP

Definitely do it. I crossed over from my barb as well - got so tired of just spinning endlessly. Really like the class and esp the CM build. I actually like it more than my zero dog WD ...

Lots of experienced, helpful, and friendly wizzies on-hand to chime in too!

If I'm lucky I can roll 250+ Intel bracers, and then switch to CD Nats. I will have more DPS more EHP at a much cheaper price, actually a ton of EHP because I get my Dex back. Only the new Bracers can make up the Intel loss without Zuni. Current bracers cannot, so it's better for me to use Zuni in 1.06.

How important is it that I get a Chantodo's Will with +0.25 attacks?
Reply Quote
Not important, as long as you can get to a BP, any aps is acceptable. But higher aps Wand means less stress on other pieces when you upgrade later. So try to look for as high aps as you can afford.

I kind of thought so. Yeah I wouldn't want to go below at least +0.24 on it.

I made mine for like 100m.....

It's not high-end, but gets the job done at mp10 just fine with a barb buddy.
