Diablo® III

Finally a buff for channeling wizards

Unwavering Will Unwavering Will
stat : Standing still for 2 seconds increases the following attributes: / *Armor: 20% / *All Resistances: 20% / *Damage: 10%
desc : TEMP Some quote from a Wizard.

Audacity Audacity
stat : You deal 20% additional damage to enemies within 15 yards.
desc : TEMP Some quote from a Wizard.

Yea baby!!! Finally.

Elemental Exposure Elemental Exposure
stat : Damaging enemies with Arcane, Cold, Fire or Lightning will cause them to take 5% more damage from all sources for 5 seconds. Each different damage type applies a stack, stacking up to 4 times. / Elemental damage from weapons contributes to Elemental Exposure.
desc : TEMP Some quote from a Wizard.

will probably bring back the healing blades build I was running at one point. You can charge healing blades with basically 6 elements, so eventually this equates to 120% damage boost so basically more than doubling your damage.

Ofcourse none of this matters if CM wiz isn't nerfed.

Well in principle I don't have a big problem with it. But
1) it invalidates all other builds, since efficiency is key, and CM build is not just like 5% better than the other wizard builds, it's like 500% better
2) makes us super crappy in PvP ; last time I checked wizard is bottom tier, and a laughing stock in PvP
3) requires some kind of macro to play ; you could play without it, but then you get carpal tunnel syndrome
4) destroys all challenge for content that should be challenging, like uber bosses just get perma freezed to death and you don't even need any tactics or strategies to overcome them.

This new passive would be quite a buff to CM/SNS builds since you mostly just stand still and spam a bunch of buttons.

I wonder what they'll do to the current snapshot mechanics. If they implement unwavering will with the current mechanics, you don't benefit from the 10% damage boost unless you stop and rechannel your attack to capture that bonus. Maybe they will change so that damage updates dynamically like with sweeping wind on the monk?

No no no, Sleet Storm matters even now, and will matter tons more with new adjustments.

Add Black Hole to the list of SS support?
