Nice, Mugel. That is a very solid setup you have there. Have you tried using d3up and simulating how a nice pair of crafted bracers and double vitality Inna's Temperance can do for you in terms of DPS and EHP?

ohhhhh... would that be a better setup?? I have some good bracers (on my WD) but my Lacunis does better for DPS still... I'm trying to craft better gloves though...

As a long time Barbarian, I'm currently trying a wizard and want to thank you for such an in informative/entertaining/clever video. If you know nothing about an Archon type wizard this video tells you everything you need to know and more.... (Saved in my favorites)

Slowly building my own wizard....

Thank you Jaetch

Lotta people asking Archon questions lately, so putting this to the top.

Entertaining, Informative, and very well done. I Stumbled upon this and want to sing your praises as well. As a new person to using the wizard, this really helped. Now I just need to use d3 up and see what I could get for my budget. I have a feeling I may be making another character or regearing mine for archon if I can reach a viable dps.

Hello can anyone give me some tips on pushing dps above 500k for my female wiz. I know with higher para i will hit that soon but just looking for gearing tips. Thanks

Since you are a female wizard, you already get 25K effective DPS not factored into your sheet DPS for looking so sassy.

And, I think the easiest thing to do is to look for a bigger weapon with more DPS and more Crit Damage.

I'll have to go with your experiences Junger...since I never made the mistake of rolling a male wiz...thankfully. I guess that's your feeling with your Chinese farmer? lol.

Jaetch, I have a complaint about this video series. You compare 0%, 12%, and 24% MS but you don't compare the only two relevant values to each other: 24% and 25%. Any plans to fix this?

I am unable to speak about that at this time.

Are you purposefully neglecting resistances, armor, and vit?

Well no. But im purely trying to get dps as high as i can and stealing the life for my damage mitigation. imo this has been pretty effective strategy. with my gameplay style. as long as i hit some base numbers of vit, res etc.

Well, PTR is up for testing I see and all the current FotMs will get nuked once it goes live....R.I.P. Archon build, I shall miss you. Guess we are screwed until RoS.

I have plans to make another Archon guide (RoS based) to wrap this up sometime in the future after we get in a lot more solid research and experimentation. It's only fitting.

I thought Archon was kill in RoS? Is there any idea to make Perma Archon viable in RoS again? If not that's that for me. How come they had to nerf Archon when they arleady took Critical Mass out? Without CM you either need extremely good gear or have to farm very low mp to keep Perma Archon going but this now...this is bull!@#$.

Welcome to... what, three months ago? There has been countless discussions on this matter already. It's going. First and foremost, it's the wizard class, not the Archon class. There will still be a use for Archon in RoS, just not perma-hold down right click and win Archon.
