TOO MANY ARCHON QUESTIONS ALL ASKING THE SAME THINGS I CAN'T ANSWER THEM ALL ONE BY ONE...
This is a series of video guides designed to help players who are new to (or confused about) the Archon wizard build, or simply need some pointers. Most experienced players may find much of the content in these guides very familiar, but hopefully there are some elements in the guides that can still prove to be enlightening.

- On occasion, pop-ups will show up on the screen. Feel free to pause the video to read them as they act as supplementary information to what I'm talking about.
- I speak very fast and I apologize in advance for that (I've considered subtitling this; perhaps in the future if absolutely necessary).
- This thread is a repost, though set to accommodate future changes.
