Upcoming Hotfix to Arcane Power on Crit

*sigh*.. I miss being able to rain meteors... now I'm reduced to... a light drizzle of meteors... *sniffle* *sniffle*

Diablo dev team logic:

#1. We can't have any build of any class do anything that any other build of any other class couldn't do

#2. We need to encourage build diversity!

When my wizard is at 3.01 aps breakpoint, chc = 64, APoC = 20 and dps > 200k dps, it's being decimated regularly by normal Lacuni Stalker that throw firebombs in mp10 on Desolete Sands map however once my wizard is geared at the extreme of 3.33 aps breakpoint and taking a hit of almost 40k dps then, everything is playable again ...Sigh! seems to me that my wizard is not generating sufficient arcane power in time for me to activate or spam Energy Twister -Wicked Wind, Diamond Skin -Diamond Shards, Frost Nova -Cold Snap & Explosive Blast -Chain Reaction supported by Evocation passive skill.

+1. Took forever for my wiz to be up to the BARB lvl. , yet my class keeps getting nerfed. Just when I got to where I want to be. Blizz says "Yeah, just a figment of your imagination."

I vote they just delete the Barbarian class completely.

I don't get the QQ, you have EXACTLY THE SAME APOC RETURNS AS 1.05/1.06 . this doubling of APOC was added in 1.07 and removed in 1.07a

ur dying due to a lack of armor and ar

also u need a bit more cc consider switchin up ur ias, and crit dmg ring for an ias and cc ring

Definitely your pants. Strength and Dex and are almost wasted stats for a wizard. The chest piece as well. There isn't really much of a defensive stat to it. Sure 19 AR is something, but it isn't anything substantial. If you're hurting for AR and armour that badly, try going for the tree piece Zuni set. Two of the pieces have AR and getting armour on any of them is fairly cheap. Your armour isn't that low though. Try to get at least 4000.

raise your cc, its 41%.past 50% but then, this is not survivability stat except for freeze quality.(ie: reduces the cd of frost nova).

pants = can be better, get 70+all ress

chest = can be better, get 70+all ress (but not urgent, you have alot of ehp here in the form of vit, not in mitigation, but mitigation based ehp is better for diamond skin/loh)

vile ward = can be better, prices have fallen

wh with all ress

pants yes. also no significant all ress

amulet blackthorne if you want to go that way.
---
argh whatever, basically everything that can roll all ress should have all ress, just work your way at the cheapest upgrade to get 70 all ress/vit on it first. (eg: lacuni with int all ress cc is going to cost a ton so its the last thing).

I believe there are guides out there for minimum ehp, dps, cc, aps, loh requires for various difficulities, just import your character in www.d3up.com and compare to others

It was a bug, and they fixed it... It says no where in the patch that APOC would be doubled. How are people really like this? Any other game would have done the same exact thing. If you really can't operate a CM Wiz w/ 18-20 APOC, then you have other problems to figure out first IMO.

I want to ask something else.
I like to use wizard and I really like the Arcane Hydra skill. One thing I noticed is that the crit damage of the Arcane Hydra has nothing to do with my crit damage. I do not know if it is a bug or it is designed to be like this.

hydras i believe only crit up to 50% dmg. thats why ruby is better for some builds.
