Got decent Chantodo's Will and force. I already have a Tal Rasha's Relentless pursuit, but it has no All Resist on it, and it sounds like that is important. What should I be shooing for on one and how much are they typically? I already have Natalya's Reflection on my Monk for the Wizard to use and a Witching Hour on my Barbarian that the wizard can use. Makes it a little easier to spend gold on other pieces.

I got my chest for 40 mil. It has 230 vit and 6% reduced damage from elites. That 6% is equivalent to about 70 AR. It's a pretty good way to save money in my opinion since elite damage is really the only damage that matters.

While I was looking for mine I saw a near perfect one sell for only 200 mil. It had something like 170 int, 250 vit, 9% IAS, and 7% damage reduction. It stayed on the auction house for a few days too. They dont show up very often though.

Damn. Yeah seems like getting Vitality is going to be a huge problem. I got a Relentless pursuit with 75 or so AR, 145 Intelligence and like 100 Vitality for 99mil, the others were worse or a lot more expensive. Seems like I may need to go the Mempo, Blackthorn's pants and cross route. But that seems pretty expensive.

Got pretty much all of my stuff. I'll put it on and update my profile to show it once I'm level 60. I do feel like my hp is going to be 35k or less. And certainlly paragon leveling will help that, which brings me to my next question. How much of a difference in gear is there between the Archon build and CM? Because I'm guessing Archon is much more effective for farming purposes.

Well I put it all on, defensive stuff isn't too bad but my damage is kind of low. It should be in my profile now. I think I could definitely use better Vile ward, and Tal Rasha's Relentless Pursuit. I'm open to other suggestions too.

Only for 1.06. In 1.07, the are boosting xp of high MP to astronomical heights. If you can get to 140k dps or so as a CM you'll be able to wormhole farm MP7 for like 55-65m xp/hour. Thats without a hellfire or ruby.

I just roll Archon with my full SNS set, MP 1 no problem. No need to switch gear I think. You can't do SNS with typical Archon gear though.

Nice gear overall, you have everything in place, I guess you need a better VW, since you don't roll Vit on VW, 200 Str ones can add a lot to your Armor. Also I know the WH is from your barb, in the long run you should use different WH though, you have a total useless prop there. Double Intel/Str roll, or Armor roll I think.

Got any input for what I should upgrade? DPS seems pretty low. It's only 121k.

Yeah lol I thought it might be okay to borrow from my Barb. I also took the Naty ring from my Monk and the right ring from my Barbarian as well. I'm guessing a better Witching Hour for Wizard will be 300mil or more right? But I suppose it would help with my low intelligence. I just replaced the Vile Ward too.

If you want more DPS then WH with another Intel roll, Lacuni with Intel instead of Dex, and higher damage source are the easiest way to up DPS without losing anything.

The WH you will need to wait for good deals, typically if you see 150 Intel high AR and Armor at 150-200M, grab it right away.

My AR is sitting pretty good right now. Do I need to get AR on my Witching Hour?
