Apr 1, 2013 So thrilled about MY new ammy... OK it's not as good as the other guys. But I'm thrilled!StareDevil7 Apr 1, 2013

Apr 1, 2013 WTH is going on with people leaving Ubers? I haven't had a MP10 carry in awhile because I had given up on a Hellfire ring ever rolling what I need, and the last experience I had sucked. There was a guy posted on chat he was doing carries, so I got on board for 2 mil and 1 machine. The whole group went out to get the 5 stacks, and to my amazement, I was doing quite well on MP10. The other 2 guys in the group went first and everything was fine, we got the spine and fang. I made my machine and noticed the main carrier left as in dropping completely offline. So here I am with the first two parts(again, a very similar thing happened the last time I got carried). One of the guys left, and the other guy wanted to get the Act 1 key, so we did, and he left. I told the dude I had a machine and we could try, but he wasn't interested. So, I went in and made the third portal. I tried several times and got them halfway down and the damn Siegebreaker got me. I refreshed the NV stacks and went again, but by the time I would get them halfway down, my arms were hurting so bad I just could not do it. My DPS being at 175K didn't help anything, but I do think if my arms would not have been hurting so bad I could have done it. So, if that dude trolls the forums, you suck. Totally suck. I wont say what I really want cause they would ban me. At least he did not get the 2 mil from me. So now, I have 3 fangs and 3 spines, buy no eyes. Has anybody else had a similar experience? And if so, could you enlighten me as to why somebody would do this? Could it be just to troll or is there some hack going on? TLDR: Guy offers MP10 uber carry, gets first 2 portals open and parts, and leaves game. I try, but could not make it work to get the other part by myself. Dude sucks.Hub16 Apr 1, 2013

Apr 1, 2013 Exp per hour I hear many people saying they get around 60 million per hour. I cant seem to get more than 30 per hour. I tried many routes like alkizer run and many other routes. As wizards, what build/routes are you doing to get 60+million per hour? I am P92 now but its still over 2 billion exp to get to 100. I have tried all MP levels also, ruby in helm and seem to top out at around 30M per hour. Thankschadkan12 Apr 1, 2013

Mar 31, 2013 Questions: CM + LL vs WW +/- meteor So I've read multiple threads that are pertinent including: Breakpoints for LL: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/7864756550?page=1 Breakpoints for WW: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/6794871641 The SNS guide: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/7200301791 Referenced the CM/WW simulator: http://d3cmww.com/cmww Here's the questions: 1) If you look at theoretical output, if it's only single mob, Diamond Shards seems to do awful damage (<7-8% of total), but in a group it seems to do even more dmg than possible shocking aspect/ww. Where, and is there a breakpoint in using Diamond Shards versus the -7 AP cost rune instead? (assuming the 7 AP cost rune fuels other things, like WW, Chain Reaction, or meteor). We will assume crystal shell is the best for survivability if that is needed so ignoring that for now. 2) For people who use a Chant's wand, the options seem to be a base wand (up to 1.65), one with +OS, or one with +IAS. As the wizard has no other 'life steal' equipment options, magic weapon with LS seems to be the preference skill if you choose a OS/+IAS wand.. (or, the other option is to stack more +LOH). Assuming you aren't stacking LOH (stormcrow, pants, rings) a) Does a 1.65+OS(110% CHD) wand outdo a 1.81 no socket (+IAS wand) ? Simulator seems to say they are overall about equal b) If you were to play with a 1.65% life steal wand, doesn't it free up the skill slot for other stuff that would increase more eDPS? (in this case, I've been testing meteor, but let's say archon too) 3) WW and LL both seem to be dependent on overall APS for ticks. Both take 'casting turns' but then they can fuel other things. WW is 35 AP, LL is free. For one of my current setups, d3up says WW does 32k dps/192k total dmg/cast, but LL is just 97k dps. Is there anyway to compare the two? Seems like you can often have 5-6 WW out, and LL is just a 'line of 6-7 creatures' a) In addition, my WW setup has a higher APS 2.5, but a lower sheet DPS 190k dps. However, my LL setup has a lower APS 2.0, but a higher sheet DPS 230k. I'm not sure either wins over the other, as they both can fuel meteor (6 to 10 in a 'row'), but I am obviously seeing 'harder hitting meteors' with the 230k dps, but maybe 1 or 2 less overall meteors at 2.0 vs 2.5 aps. 4) Lastly, does astral presence (+20 ap) outdo arcane dynamo (+75% next meteor, in this case) if I was using LL/meteor. In other words, does having the higher AP (with -meteor reduction perhaps, -7 from DS, -4 from items) allow you to cast more and outdo the bonus from one 'souped up' meteor? Thanks very much for input.. trying to find optimal combination - Not sure I can really tell the difference, and it may just be 'soup du jour'booger739 Mar 31, 2013

Mar 31, 2013 [Sug.] Disintegrate Rune Intensify Redesign I found wizard active skill Disintegrate [Intensify] looks functionally very close to Ray of Frost [Snow Blast] but a weaker version. As a hard core fan of wizard, I strongly suggest Blizzard adjust Intensify to make wizard skills more diverse. Why they look similar? Let data talk. Disintegrate [Intensify] (http://us.battle.net/d3/en/class/wizard/active/disintegrate) vs. Ray of Frost [Snow Blast] (http://us.battle.net/d3/en/class/wizard/active/ray-of-frost) 1. Both are active channel skill on single target. 2. Both increases damage over a certain period to inflict a maximum of 2xx% weapon. For Snow Blast, the maximum weapon damage is 280% while for Intensify is 221% - Snow Blast outperforms Intensify. 3. Both need a certain period to reach the maximum damage. For Snow Blast, the period is 1.5 sec. And for Intensify, though the description "slowly over time" is a bit blurred, we all know the tick of channel skill is every 0.5 sec. So the period for Intensify could only be 0.5 sec, 1 sec, 1.5 sec ... and only such "over time" shorter than three ticks can Intensify outperform Snow Blast. Since we don't have the actually data here, we assume it is a tie in this aspect. 4. Both has the ability to slow down target's movement by 60% But Intensify needs to work with Temporal Flux and even with Temporal Flux, the slowing period is 3 sec shorter than the one of Snow Blaster which is 4 sec. 5. Basic form of the skill are similar: both are low arcane cost skill, both are medium high damage non-signature skill, etc. But from a lot of perspective, Snow Blaster outperforms Intensify such as basic damage, maximum damage, arcane power cost, and the most important one, Snow Blaster can work well with Cold blood. Based on the above analysis, Intensify can be substituted by Snow Blast in almost all occasions if needed, which is more powerful. This makes Intensify a redundant skill to Wizard which is the reason why I suggest buff or re-design of this rune here. Any discussion of this two runes and Wizard skill design are welcome in this thread:)Sunniel7 Mar 31, 2013
Mar 31, 2013 My wiz does CotA faster than my DH w/half dps Wiz stats: - 600 avg AR - 760 LoH - 2.54 attack speed - 43.5% crit chance - 151% crit dmg - 40k life - 131k DPS DH stats: - 420 avg AR - 2.60 attack speed - 64.5% crit chance - 300% crit damage - 46k life - 242k DPS Over the course of an hour, my DH cleared CotA runs on an average of 3:30, yet my Wizard clears the run in 2:40. Can anyone explain this to me? On the one hand, it sucks to see this happening because I've invested so much time and gold into my DH, but on the other hand I don't know how long of a sitting I can take with my left hand spamming those 3 keys over and over, regardless of how much faster it is on my Wizard.Degausser11 Mar 31, 2013

Mar 31, 2013 life is much easier w/o trying 3.0 aps SNS build Using a 1.65 wand means I have to wear IAS pants to get up to 3.0 aps even when all other pieces has 9% ias. It is pretty easy to get to 2.74 aps with various combos. As such, it save you tons of gold and make your life easier. My question is after 2.74 (or 2.73), does any increase of aps before 3.0 become useless? lets say 2.83, 2.92 and such. I understand it doesn't provide extra tickle with WW, but it does increase paper dps? Does Paper dps help with SNS' lighting and diamond skin explosion? How about LOH effect between 2.74 and 2.83 (2.92)? Thank you in advance for your discussion.Sagittarius19 Mar 31, 2013

When I peep his gears and build yes it was typical CM Build but very soon I notice he has 0 AS in gear except 1.65 chant wand. Then I ask him what MP he farming, he reply mp10 then I said wooo and I insist him to show me how he farm. So I invited him into my game in ACT1 so he straight away go to Leoric Manor to show me how he kill pack of white mob. Then I teleport back to town and say it's done, then I ask him can you show me how you kill the elite then he say cannot , so this is so call MP10 ready.Haze15 Mar 31, 2013
