Wizard

Nov 3, 2012 Dying in inferno randomly and instanly I need some advice on my wizard build. I have been trying to focus mainly on intelligence, resistance, and damage but for some reason I will die almost instantly in certain battles. It's so instant I don't even have time to put on the ice armor. Can the wizard pros take a look at my gear and give me some advice? I have around 850k to spend. I know my chest plate and pants need improved but I cannot find a cheaper better replacement. Thanks in advance!pensfan08041 Nov 3, 2012

Nov 3, 2012 What is needed to permafreeze a Boss mob? Lately I have been experimenting with several gear setups in order to maximize the electiveness off CM/WW. My target is to fully permafreeze a Boss, by permafreeze i mean that the boss doesn't even move a bit during the fight and is unable to cast his affixes. At 2,95 aps and 58 CC Ghom does still move a bit, raising to 3.01 aps but with 52,5 CC doesnt change that My question is , is it possible to permafreeze a boss? what stats are you using to do that?GreyMouser19 Nov 3, 2012

Nov 3, 2012 Why can't wizards have 2 Hydras This may be my observation but why can't wizards have 2 hydras active at the same time? In the current patch, DH can have 2 turrets active at the same time with an 8 second cooldown (up to three with custom engineering) and their turrets last 30 seconds compared to Hydras that last 15 seconds. It just doesn't seem fair. In the next patch, I would like to see the possibility of having two or possibly three hydras active at the same time with the second hydra casted costing 50% more or having a 6 second cooldown. Any thoughts or suggestions?Omeganite3 Nov 3, 2012

Nov 3, 2012 Why I KITE. First things first. I'm not the greatest wizard player to grace the halls of D3. I don't have LEET skilz or the most efficient build in the game. I don't troll forums calling one build better than another or put down others because I can melt faster than someone else in lesser gears. And let's be honest, a lot of D3 is about your gear. That being said, I have some experience playing games, especially the Diablo series. In fact, my gaming experience goes back to the first Commodore 64 console. I bought my first PC when 2megs on your hard drive was monstrous. You get the point. Anyhow, I love gaming but I am also a professional who works hard and plays hard with his family. I have six children and the most beautiful wife in the world(to me). Needless to say, my time is valuable so when I spend a few hours in D3 it's because I love the experience. I'll never get tired of the thrill of lasing monsters faces off or ID'ing legs. I even enjoy browsing the AH. I'll admit, I have spent money on the RMAH but I have also made money there too (not anything to speak about really). I hope you'll forgive me for dropping a $20 here or there on a hobby I enjoy. So, without further ado, I would like to say that I have always been a kiting wiz and probably always will be. Why? Well, call it the old fashioned part of me from my D&D days but isn't a wizard supposed to be a ranged class? We weren't meant to tank, that's for barbs and zombie bears :) The CM/WW build is awesome in that it allows us to mitigate most damage, but wizards aren't supposed to be about mitigation imo, and I think that's the reason we keep seeing procs nerfed. Blizzard PROBABLY never meant for a viable stunlock build to exist just because it kinda takes the fun out of it. I admit, I tried it. There are some great advantages to it. But it's not for me. As for the archon build, well, I tried that too. I was no good at it. I didn't enjoy rushing through the level. I rush to work, I rush for my clients, I rush home, I rush to the store. The last thing I need is to rush through my gaming experience hoping to find the next big cluster so that I can extend my melt time. So here I am. I play MP5 and I do it with a kiting build. It's not the generic hydra/blizz build. I find that bland and colorless. I don't use blizzard and that means I don't run coldblooded. I've tried that and imo if you're going to go cold, go ALL THE WAY(ROF, blizz, icearmor, freeze, ect.) That's fun, but still broken atm, so I run a slightly more efficient build. Here are the nuts and bolts: Mouse 1= Electrocute/FL Mouse 2= Teleport 1= Disintegrate/Chaos 2= Hydra/Arcane 3= MagicWeap/Force 4= StormArm/Thunder Passives: A= Anomaly B= Temp Flux C= Dynamo A few of these can be switched out depending on playstyle. Disintegrate can be changed to diamondskin and you can rune teleport anyway you'd like. The 3rd passive slot can also be illusionist, blur, or whatever your heart desires. Just don't use CM as nothing on this build will proc it efficiently. Flux is in there for the slow and since 1.05 anomaly is just flat out OP. For this build to work, you will need max runspeed(24%), a modest amount of DPS(for MP1 I would say 70k), cc in the 30's, as much life regen as you can get, and a quick mouse finger. The defense of this build comes from 3 things: your ability to outrun or stay ahead of the pack(hence temporal flux paired with maxrunspeed), your teleport, and your dps. The offense comes from your main standbys, forked lightning and disintegrate, but more importantly your armor and your turrent. FL is the best skill a wizard has against multiple packs and the free stuns (off crits I think) are nice. Disintegrate is for bosses, elites and ubers only. Or if you are in the mood to be really mean. Chaos nexus allows you the extra time to stand in place and keep your beam focused on a single target. The real DPS from this build are from the kiting wizard's best friends, the hydra and the new storm armor. Arcane hydra not only allows you to kite, but it's an AOE snare and a constant source of DPS. The companion to this is Storm Armor. It got a nice buff in 1.05 and now you can run and gun at 130% sheet dps. And that's without the crits. It procs so often and hits so hard I oftentimes find myself dropping a turrent and just standing there watching the fireworks. So there you have it. Love it or leave it. Your thoughts are appreciated. Except in the case of my wife. ;) Peace out.KragHak6675 Nov 3, 2012

Nov 3, 2012 what are some all around good boots for wiz? I want to upgrade my boots, what are some good all around boots to upgrade to? I like Zuni boots because of the elemental damage but no AR. Ice Climbers are great also but no bonus to movement speed. My budget is <5m but could be a little higher if need be. These are my current boots, http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Shoe-1490/hero/23686407 Another idea is to skip on the boots and focus on another upgrade. What do you guys think?Shoe4 Nov 3, 2012
Nov 3, 2012 All in the family -Archon brothers want ring? I get tired of going with nasty OP barbs or tree hugging monks to get their rings so want other wizzies to feel the love. Add me and nitro we'll guarantee ur ring just bring machines and fire away massive DPS from behind. Ubers will take 75% more damage from you cuz we use bone chill and time warp stacked so quick kills too. Assuming u have ~200K dps it's less than 15min for all three ubers. With 2 archons probably less. To get 5 stacks on MP10 just stay in town and we'll let u know when to port.Aimless34 Nov 3, 2012

Nov 3, 2012 Hardcore Wizard Build with 2 mil Just wondering what you would suggest. I'm not a CM Wizard because that can be dangerous in HC. If you have some good cheap ideas with a build to go with it I'd really appreciate it. I have looked at Wizardspike, rare wands, or Slorak'sMichael1 Nov 3, 2012
Nov 3, 2012 Best Wiz build with a tight budget? I only have 75 mil to spend and was just wondering what would be the best build I should use for that small amount of gold. Is that enough to get archon going or will my DPS still be too low? I loved playing CM/WW but I remember it being terrible at trash killing and I skipped most of it. Now with needing to gain Paragon levels and with more legendaries dropping I want to kill everything so I figure Archon would be better.Dabrixmgp7 Nov 3, 2012
Nov 3, 2012 How much life regen needed to be effective? I see a lot of builds with 2.5k life regen which seems great but out of my budget. Is 1k enough life regen to be effective or do I really need to boost it to over 2k in order for it not to be a waste of time?Shoe0 Nov 3, 2012

Nov 3, 2012 Could really use some advice... First of all thanks for coming and helping out, too many people just skip over help threads or just troll, so thank you for your opinion in advance. I have been really frustrated with my wizard so far... can't really do anything over mp2 which makes attempting the infernal machine almost idiotic for me to even waste my time. I am extremely interested in the CM/WW build but I don't even know where to begin on gearing for it. While looking through the forums I see that most people use chantdo's. But what about everything else? I only have about 40 mil right now as I have finally started saving my gold, could have 50mil in a couple of days. So would you mind giving me advice on what items to get and why? For example, just list what stats I could shoot for within budget on certain pieces. I am willing to upgrade as I go but if I do that I would need the build to be at least sustainable until I can afford further gear. I just don't even know where to begin.one2bit10 Nov 3, 2012
