or why dont we just do me vs malakai
two gg sets vs eachother ;p
yoda sleetstorm is a pretty open build so u can compensate gear deficencies with skills.
need to gear a bit towards it though, meaning ias not too high, good mit and ehp in general, apoc and ls.
U have to account for the ap regeneration, so either 20 apoc + astral or power hungry (pur on gear?) or u could go with 20 apoc and tals 4 set or use less apoc + more some ap reg skill like arcanot, ap reduction skills like power of the storm os ds prism. ur choice.
basics is just sleetstorm + teleport + magic weapon of choice(depending on how much ls ) + armour of choice (depending on ur mit basically). the other 2 spells are a bit open depending on ur needs gears. if u use cm fn, ds eb are options or u can buff urself harder with sparkflint and use one cd based spell only. the passives cold bloded obviously + cm + ap regen of choice.
the build is really open for variations.

I cringe, too. No offense.
So after playing my WD for the past 2-3 weeks I just tried SS for the first time in MP10 - it works fine, but I have to say I prefer WD. Ill stick to WD for this type of playstyle, and SNS on wiz unless they nerf it, in which case I'll have a nice SS gear set waiting on my alt.
The burst dmg is an advantage, WD can kill white trash in 1-2ticks as opposed to waiting for SS to tick off 4-5times.
Also mobility is better on WD because I can spirit walk all over the place and gain mana for doing so, whereas with Teleport I lose my AP and it takes a while to get it back.
I also like the Crowd Control better on WD - Hex/Mass Confusion. On wiz I need to use Timewarp because when I tried Frost Nova I had to stop and start my SS cast every few seconds due to the interruption, and bubble is no CC, when compared to nova or hex+confusion.
4-5 Ticks is a bit much. I kill typical mobs in 1 to 1.5 seconds. Some mobs take a sec longer, some almost vanish, but your typical mob is about 1 to 1.5 seconds which amounts to 3-4 ticks. However, I find that to be a non issue. The radius for CoB seems smaller than SS. I don't know why it feels that way, but it does.
Mobility is better with SS because teleport's CD is easily reset. Yes it costs to Teleport, but you gain it by fighting 3+ mobs. AP management is easy on SS. The only problem ever comes with a single mob. With WD, I've had my mana drain because I had to run from certain affixes, though I'm sure with the right gear I could heal through them better. Each cast of CoB costs a decent chunk of mana. There is no such penalty for moving with SS, and so, SS is superior for movement. Sorry, but WD is no where near as good for mobility as a wizard.
I've been convinced by Malakai to drop time warp. I dropped FN a long time ago for the reasons you stated. Explosive Blast does significantly more damage than Time Warp if you're able to cast three in 8 seconds... which you are. That consumes mana, so you want the Unleashed rune. It's easy to keep your AP up with it, still, but yes you will drain and not be in "infinite sleet storm" mode.
I do not run with Power Hungry, by the way. I find it to be situationally useful and I just prefer the regen from Astral Presence.
By the way, reactive armor is a good DPS boost. Shocking aspect is even better, but it doesn't give you the same defensive capability that reactive does.
tried...and failed miserably.
back to sns/cm.

all I said was I failed with ss miserably. I didn't say it was a bad build. I'm so new to ss.
did I say anything negative about ss?
I'm not being ignorant b/c at least i'm trying.
why are you so mad about sns/cm? b/c you can't do it ?
