@Emperor: Nicely done video! Hahaha, I just wanna know who those two noobs are with you at 38s in that video. :p

EDIT: For those might be curious on the DPS output of Emperor's Raining Meteor, Emperor did a Ghom test and was running a 8.15x multiplier. :) That was a 32s kill on MP6 Ghom. Not too shabby! Now that's including all the awesome elite damage (38.09%) and demon damage (15%) that Emperor was now running, so it's a bit biased. But it definitely shows how stacking elite damage can result in a pretty damaging setup that doesn't require spamming Explosive Blast+Shards+Shocking Aspect. Without the elite damage and demon damage, the build runs about a 5.5x DPS multiplier. That's pretty good in my book for a kiting build! :)

OMG, you're right! I keep making this really silly mistake of forgetting that all meteor builds suck, and we need a big buff. Yeah that's it... move along nothing to see interesting in this thread. (6)

Though seriously Meteor does need a buff! Like Sleet Storm-based builds, Meteor is just on the cuff of becoming competitive with builds like SNS and Archon. And when you have fairly competitive builds like Raining Meteor that don't use Frost Nova and can kite effectively, you know you're taking a step in the right direction. :)

What can I say! :lol For some reason, I keep relapsing into the VERY unhealthy thinking that Meteors are competitive, but clearly that's a harmful delusion. Dr. Ryoka and Dr. Steel what kind of regime do you suggest for therapy?

Just stop sounding excited :> Because DH's Clustered Arrow has a reduction of 7....so if I dont get Meat Reduction of at least 7, it's on you :>

*ahem* Meteors are bad....*ahem*

Oh good, clearly that P100 wizard in the video has some real issues. He was a real noob for playing with a P1 WD... and even worse a Meteor Wizard. Meteors just plain suck bad! They need to be buffed. QQ

*see Ryoka it's working!*

Darn it, this is so painful... :p

Ha, I returned after months of a hiatus and last time I played I was busy with my WD on HC.

So there I was wondering if Meteor was still a valid option, as SNS / Archon and the good old CM specs seem to be state of the art. Glad to be proven wrong, although my gear is slightly lacking to say the least.

Only thing I could !@#$% moan about is that Tyrael's doesn't come with +Beast/Humanoid/Undead bonuses rather than solely Demon. Awesome in Act 3 but ever since the density patch Act 1 is kind of where its at (XP wise anyway) :(

Nice to see a non-permafreeze spec!

Might give this a try later on.

It indeed is, it completely slipped my mind - even though it was where I ran with my WD. Yet those snake thingies are likely to be far more painful on a Wiz than on a WD with bats spinning right round round round.

I'll have to do some testing, however, something seemed odd ever since the changes. I don't think Act 2 nor Act 3 came remotely close to provide Act 1 experience when milking Fields Of Misery and the map north of town leading to the cemetery.

Still, a moot point anyway for those at Paragon 100 and whatnot. At this point I rather 'gimp' my damage and wear Leoric's (30% woo woo) + Hellfire solely for the 60% XP boost - with a helmet effectively doubling my XP gain.

So no serious Meteor -5AP stacking anytime soon, although I was apparently clever enough to fetch an occulus prior to leaving with -5AP. I figure the Teleport CD reduc is still broken, though.

Anyway, I'll figure something out. For now it's crafting time anyway. >>Dat Gaunts / Armlets / Amulet need an overhaul quite badly.

Awesome video and certainly an inspiring route to take. All that meele Wizard jazz was never been my thing and Archon was by far to stressful with the upkeep pressure.

Cheers!

tekk i just did a test, if i swap molten impact for meteor shower, i could hit 13x multiplier.... but how do u calculate it so that its fair without the elite damage and demon dmg %
