Diablo® III

I'm going to blame new patch for our mess.

No, guys like APh or Boozor kill most Elites before they spawn too many pools. But I have to agree if under 300k DPS going glassy is quite dangerous.

I don't understand people who drop mitigation so greatly--do not poison pools, if nothing else, kick you butts?


Maybe I can't speak for myself but being @ 3 APS affords me some luxuries.

Mainly LOH boosts allow me to tank certain situations without fail.

The worst affix for me is electrify, since I don't have 20-25% dodge, I really feel the extra heat from 3-4 electrify packs so I stay outa the middle of them til 1-2 go down, then I bring the pain.

Even in your current spec? I usually farm with GC and BM, and I feel invincible once I start windup. The leech 1.5% LS gives you at (in my case) 294k unbuffed with GC, MW, DF is insane.

at least in 1.06, it was impressive to look at Shandlar's set up or Darshu's set up. You looked at their profiles over and over again and said, wow...he must be Godly.


That's because getting gear like that cost billions in 1.06, which back then was actually worth thousands of dollars. Now a billion gold is $44. Also, comparable gear is abundantly available. There are more "godly" players around because you can get "godly" gear for the price of a Big Mac Combo Meal.


Bringing back the value meals??? My wizard is worth Atleast 50 Big Macs

Take solace in the fact that DHs are now the de facto red-headed stepchildren of D3.


How is that? DH rule the world in PvP, and they nerfed DH's worst enemy RD. And exploding the Grim Reaper mark on using Sever to do 12% of 43million damage in 20 yards is a lot of fun for those proficient in abusing it. :p

I still play my wizard fondly, but I've got monk as my 2nd-favourite class now too :p

No, in my current spec the LS from blood magic makes up for the extra mitigation loss since i'm pushing 400k+ dps the Life return is huge. My unbuffed DPS is 312k dps w/o follower. With follower its 325k. After DF i'm @ around 371k dps.

My standard spec for keeps + act 3 is safe passage and blur passage. Wormhole for vault.

However without blood magic, I can't stand in the middle of elec pack without taking heavy damage.

I want the difficulty at the beginning of 105 back (which blizz claimed was a bug). Well, I don't care no more since I am cashing out.

I'm one of those Sever people. And that's what we're left to resort to :)

First of all, not everyone plays cm/ww wiz, so speak for yourself.

The fact was that RD elites were just so OP compared to other affixes that it became the affix of doom more then any other by a mile.

Gearing EHP and mitigation around one single affix is stupid game design, and blizzard realized that. With my DPS, there is no amount of mitigation that can protect me from the RD. It would absolutely mandate a 3% lifesteal weapon plus blood magic to deal with RD since that's all the options we have as Archons. Mandated gear around one affix = dumb. Overall challenge of all affixes = good.

If they are going to do anything in the future, I could possibly support reducing the damage RD reflects, but further buff plagued/molten/elect and others if you want a harder game.

All I want is balance. Not one OP affix like RD was in 1.06.

i dont really understand the point of this thread, you are complaining because super high EHP is not needed anymore? Who cares I dont think most people play WIZARD to be a tank, just because we ended up being the best "tanks" in the game due to our freezing.

glass cannon 4 life!

thing is Yoda you like to farm in groups... groups can be a clusterf with spread out elites sometimes two packs launching all sorts of stuff so you gottta be tank to get it under control. Usually, solo, I run GC and OS wand but i dont tell no body about it.

Bottom line solo you can go pretty glass.. groups especially when ur only CM not so much
