I told my friend in game who wanted to make a CM wiz to get 2.5aps, 50cc, stack mitigation, etc, etc, then I just told him to look up the budget threads by this cool dude on the forums named Boozor!

Your IAS is too low currently, sitting at 50% and 1.62 wand puts you at 2.43 unbuffed APS. Below 2.51 breakpoint.

Not where you want to be.

Resistance is ok for what it is, armor is not ok hovering around the low 3000s. Look at least get this over 4000.

Crit chance is too low as well. < 40%. Definately try to get over 45%. Your missing crit on bracers/amulet thats an easy 12-16% crit chance.

Visage helm is ok, but storm crow is a better option.

Thanks for the support Domo.

Also quick update on this series. I just completed my 250m budget wizard.

I am extremely happy with it, and so is "DOBIE" who was kind enough to fund the project and now he is the proud owner of the gear set. Hopefully he shows himself since his gear will be on camera.

Videos are being uploaded as we speak and results will be posted.

Thanks everyone enjoy :)

hi Boozor,

great stuff! this really helps and it surely should be a sticky.

if you don't mind may i ask for your advise as well.

most of the gears i have on me are from drops, friends and other friendly players, i bought the weapon and shoulders though.

will be great to know what is lacking in my wiz! :D

Yes, he was working on it yesterday. I saw the set up and I was extremely impressed. Booz did an excellent job. How much commission did he get for the set up?

but in my opinion, one of ways to have fun d3 is trial and error. continual gear evolvement. I think you got him at a very good start.

Thanks yoda

Not a big deal on the commission I was happy to do it for the video.

I agree I think it's a great set and shows what can be done for the alotted budget.

Would like some more criticism on the gear and some more views for discussion :)

Also 1m and 50m set still Avaliable for anyone needing a start up

Cheers everyone appreciate the kind words.

I realized I had a 60 wizard and apporx 130m so I followed your 50m guide and added another 40 or so (most on more expensive vile ward and witching hour) still looking for some bid-bargain so it's not yet complete. Would be nice of you to take a look in my profile and leave a comment!

Thats a decent set for 240 mil. I personally wouldn't go for 2.74 with that budget though. My wiz cost me almost exactly 240 mil (movement speed on the ice climbers taking up 1/4 of that cost) and I have more DPS and a ton more EHP against elites.

Hi Boozor,

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Eclipse-1647/hero/19731055

Can I have your thoughts? About 20m spent. Bulk of gold was for the WH (was suppose to use it for my Barb but I didn't want to lose gold reselling it, so I used it here). Both rings were self-found so I saved a quite a bit of gold there as well.

I only wanted to hit the 2.74 to help with freezing so didn't build it for the DPS (which is why I'm using a few cheap low-end items). I know chc could be a little higher.

Hey Boozor is it possible with only 500k? I'm serious, for real this time.

again, 2.74 will put out more real game dps then actual sheet dps. I learned it the hard way. and 2.74 will take care of your ehp as long as you got some descent amount of LOH. If you want to make a cm wiz, always work on 2.74APS and CC before ar/armor/hp.
