Oct 7, 2012 Need Suggestions For Improving Wiz Hey guys, if you could check out my gear page and suggest areas for improvement I would really appreciate that. I have a budget of about 30M right now, so I'm probably looking to spend all of it on one piece. I would prefer to stick with a CM build in 1.0.5, but it's looking like it's going to be difficult do do that If I don't get my crit chance in the 45% area, so I'm not entirely opposed to a kiting build. Thanks for the advice!TheSorcGod0 Oct 7, 2012

Oct 7, 2012 ACT 3 HIGH DPS Speed Run Group Looking to add some friends to my list to start doing more Act 3 runs. I usually play on weekdays from around 7PM -8PM EST to when ever I go to sleep and pretty much during the day on the weekends. I'm looking for players with high DPS. For DH, that means +100k unbuffed. I don't know what is considered high DPS for other classes, so I'm probably looking for someone ranked in the top 3000 DPS in Americas on Diabloprogress.com. My DH is ranked in the top 900 in Americas. Again, I'm not really familiar with other classes, if you feel I should change the requirement, feel free to make any recommendations. Have fun!Destroyer2 Oct 7, 2012

Oct 7, 2012 Bought Chant's Force for 39 mil - good deal? Thought I'd buy a cheap chant's set for 1.05 just to have some fun w/ melee build when I am sick of running archon, and a decent one popped up on the AH with 1 day 12 hours left for 39 million. It's the source equipped in my profile. Looked like a good deal so I bought it. 122-323 Damage 182 Intelligence Attack Speed 8% Critical Chance 10% Open Socket 15 to Max Arcane Power Increase Spectral Blade damage 12% Was it a good deal? Just curious.James1v1213 Oct 7, 2012
Oct 7, 2012 I need some advice on gearing Good morning ppl. Yesterday I got my first expensive legendary, it was a Evil Ward and I sold it for 53M. I've never had an amount like that and now I now I can buy some good items (yes, I know I can't get all BIS items with only 50M), so before I just spend my whole money buying a Witching Hour, I would like you wizards to help me. Should I buy some Zunimassa/Tal Rasha? For ppl who don't want to check my profiles, I have 98,253 dps. 2201 INT, 40% crit, 267% crit damage, 1,69 attacks per second. My build is designed for co-op games, which relies on Piercing Orb and Molten Impact Meteor. I hadn't money to buy good all resist items without losing dps, so the way I found to get dps was to just ignore all resist. Besides that, I really don't see any need of having 800 all resist because I'm not a melee wizard and I barely get hit. So, you guys think I should focus on gathering more money to buy endgame legendaries (like the ones that cost 100M)? I mean, just running more and more act 3 to get more money. Or should I start to buy items in the 15M range so I can farm easily? And, do you believe is that good to get all resist legendaries throwing away other valuable stats that increase my dps? For example, I saw a legendary chest that has IAS, but it hasn't all resist. The one that has all resist is just too expensive. I really don't like the idea of picking resistances up while lowering IAS, crit chance or crit dmg. But what do you think? And the last question, regardless of utility. Is it worth to buy a Shantodo Source with good dmg? I mean, is its IAS better than the +% Elemental damage? PS: I have an APOC helm with exp gem, and a cheap legendary bracer, I'm not using them when I'm running for experience, so if you don't see an Andariel Helm in my profile, you know why hehe Also, I need at least one APOC item for my build to work. Thanks in advance!Silfazaris3 Oct 7, 2012
Oct 7, 2012 What's the point of doing MP10 in 1.0.5? lol, i love how even after hellfire ring being nerf, all of you still thinking about doing MP10, wizard is all about efficiency, if ur aiming for the exp bonus or the MF bonus, why not just do MP5-7 instead 1st is faster, the amount of time u spent on wiping out mobs in MP10, u could of wipe out 2-3x the mobs in mp5-7, u dun get the exp bonus or MF % unless u kill them, what's the point of it? just for getting better roll in items? the amount of time u spent to kill the mobs or the repair bill add up probably way more than u just get them from AH..... time = money... honestly, I never had any MF gear, yet my highest record is 9 legendarys in 1 day, ever since 1.0.4 released til now, i found 4 manticore, 2 of them are high end with 2 sockets, and 3 Skorns, 2 Stormshield with CC, 3x chantodo's will, etc...... and that is just from my paragon level MF.... random affix rolls are base on how it was generate, treating MP10 like the best place to get godly item is kinda pointless, it just like saying if i put $100 in slot machine per game at vegas, do i get a better chance of winning than putting just $1 per game? the answer is no, u don't, same thing here, blizzard is the one whos controlling it, u're being controlled by blizzard, telling u that it has a better chance of getting higher roll, just to get u spend time to farm, spend more for gears on viable build that can get u thru MP10..... PS: Let me place a bet here now, if any of u can screenshot while finding a high roll trifecta tal amulet or high roll trifecta Zuni Ring in MP10 within the first 3 days after 1.0.5 release, high roll as in 10 CC, 10 ias, 63%+ CD with 285 int+, 80+ vit for Amulet, or 6CC, 10 ias, 50% CD , 150+ int for ring, I will personally give 1b to that person for free Also if any of u gonna start thinking about flaming me for this thread, then just back off, I'm just staying my point of viewAudiR8GT30 Oct 7, 2012

Oct 7, 2012 Need help, my cold wiz Rupert sucks... http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Mastiff-1986/hero/19315982 He can do act 1 but I tried act 3 and he can't do it. He can kill the normal monsters in act 3 but any elite he can't, it just takes forever and he dies too fast. I'd have to kite for 10 mins per elite. With that said, I really enjoy cold wiz and want to improve it. Pros: ------ - fun to play - fun to chill and freeze monsters, cool sound fx - blizzard skill is great - ray of frost is pretty good - frost hydra is pretty good, which surprised me. Casting it after blizzard works great cause they're slowed and the cone can kill them - I can use frostburns which is cool, they add 30% additional dmg to cold skills and then I get 20% more dmg from the cold dmg passive, 50% total. If my dps says 29k, would it be 43k in reality? Cons: ------- - he dies too fast, he has 27k life and 29k dps and a range of 550-650 in all the resistances without energy armor and a single spear or any attack from an act 3 normal monster still takes 1/3 of his life unless I have diamond skin up. Why? - runs out of arcane power too fast and too often - he doesn't do enough damage, how can I upgrade him without spending tens of mils? - meteor with comet rune sucks, this whole skill sucks and does no dmg. Why use it when you can just cast a blizzard - ice armor sucks so I don't use it. what a crappy skill which is sad thanks for any helpMastiff8 Oct 7, 2012

Oct 7, 2012 Meteor vs Energy Twister Comparison Help! So I have to prepare a technical presentation for my university and I thought "Hey, I can make a comparison between meteor and ET and how often they proc LoH, CM etc.". I can't make it longer than 15 minutes and it is also going to have to include a brief introduction to the game mechanics. I was thinking I would mainly compare liquefy versus wicked wind to avoid incredibly complex calculations. I'm also going to assume infinite AP (or APoC) and an average wizard (2 APS, 50 CC) but I might change it if the comparison is more interesting with different values. Can some theorycrafters/mathematicians help me out with a couple of basic things? I would really appreciate it! Thanks everyone.nitrocan36 Oct 7, 2012

Oct 7, 2012 High DPS-Low Surv spec, that isn't archon?

Oct 7, 2012 Why can't wizards have more than 1 armor spel I don't see the problem with having 2 or even all 3 armor spells considering you're losing a skill slot which could be another skill so there is still a trade off - I don't see how this would be too strong or something. If I want to have a defensive set up then I should be able to if that means using more than 1 armor spell. thoughts?
