Aug 29, 2012 What should I improve next? So I'm able to do act 1 inferno and act 2 inferno (most of it) pretty easily. I still can't hang in act 3. Here's my wizard. http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/DaRupp-1969/hero/14917108 I alternate between the current build and the WW/CM build. I haven't been using the CM build because my CC was only 29% and wasn't procing enough. I just upgraded my amulet so i'm up to 34.5%, it might be enough, i'll have to see. In terms of gear, what should i upgrade? I only have a couple million gold (eff RMAH), so i'd have to gather some gold in order to do any major upgrades, but if that's what it takes, that's what it takes. What do you guys think? EDIT: my goal is to keep about 200% MF when fully buffed (i'm at level 6 paragon)DaRupp3 Aug 29, 2012
Aug 29, 2012 -=275k+ DPS=- Melee Wizard -VIDEOS- It's common knowledge that melee wizards are awesome now, but when I first started out the general consensus was that they did too little dps. I aimed to prove that wrong and successfully did so in the videos below. I don't play d3 anymore but by the end I was pushing nearly 1 rare/champ pack or boss per minute at about 2 rares per pack, which is extremely efficient farming. If you have any questions please read through this thread as they are almost all answered within.

Aug 29, 2012 skorn or wand + triumvirate? Currently I'm sitting at 62k dps, would a skorn, 175% base crit damage + a 100% crit emerald be the way to go or trium + a wand? Wondering because if i do go skorn I'm gonna have to get crit on one of my ring and my bracers. Guess what i truly want to know if which one will boost the dps more.

Aug 29, 2012 looking for gear advice My wizard was my first 60 but quickly was set on the backburner. I've gained interest in it again and am looking for upgrades. I'm running the cookie cutter fire-and-forget build and I have a 13mil budget, not exactly sure what stats I should be aiming for. A1 inferno is a joke, everything dies from one arcane hydra lol.

Aug 29, 2012 Puzzle Ring for Wizards? What do my fellow wizards think about the puzzle ring? Anyone tried using it?

How many procs did they get in one farming run (say 40min run)? Thanks guys!Bankai6 Aug 29, 2012
Aug 29, 2012 Real damage% of Disintegration Wave? I crit around 350k with shock pulse.. and disintegration wave is only around 550k-650k crits. Shouldn't a skill with 300% damage +25% damage boost do a lot more damage than a 105% damage primary skill? I've been told that disintegration wave gives ticks based on your aps. So If I have 1.34 aps and .. am critting for only 90% harder than shock pulse... Doesn't that mean that disintegration wave is only 200% damage... OR?? Could someone please explain... I know how I explained this sounds very unprofessional. I'm actually getting really tired right now but I had this discussion with a friend and would really like to know how disintegration wave works. Something is OBVIOUSLY wrong with this skill. Either the tooltip is wrong My friends claim that the aps is the same as your aps on details or... Could someone please point out the flaw in my logic as to how disintegration wave works and elaborate please?!RuthlessAB1 Aug 29, 2012

Aug 29, 2012 Wizard Q and A.. So I finally got inferno finished, working on Paragon leveling and MF gear. Its insane seeing wizards with 60k dps, currently I have 33k dps, but im sacrificing alot in resistance to all and vitality. Is thier anything I could possible do to make my wizard more viable in inferno? I get 2 - 4 shotted everytime. So should I sacrifice my dps for vitality and resistance gear? any help is appreciated. Also I think I got to work on my spec..Psyduck3 Aug 29, 2012

Aug 29, 2012 Storm Chaser im trying out different builds with my wiz but theres something thats odd about storm chaser the rune says its only activated by a signature spell but everyone doesnt use one. so do the wind charges stack up for more damage or what?Tank12 Aug 29, 2012
Aug 29, 2012 Did anyone try different energy twister? Did anyone try different energy twister other than storm chaster? I am still not sure if storm chaster works better than WW sometimes 'cause it moves around. If it doesn't hit the target, not much use isn't it? I wonder if other twister works the same too 'cause if you don't use sign spell, it's kind of no use.GChen994 Aug 29, 2012

Aug 29, 2012 Triumvirate Damage Calculation I swear this thing is glitched. I can somehow gain/lose 5k DPS by just equipping/unequipping different weapons and triumvirate. Sometimes it says that my other source will make me lose 100 dps or so if i equip it instead of triumvirate, but then when I actually equip it, I lose 5k DPS. I have no idea what's going on. EDIT: Hey everyone, read my below reproduction steps. I'm getting different DPS numbers with the same items. This isn't some tricky black weapon issue, it's a calculation error.nitrocan36 Aug 29, 2012

Aug 29, 2012 what am i doing wrong? I been stuck farming act 1 for ever. I can roll pretty much everything and if by some chance I die maybe once if that on a run. as soon as try to farm act 2 I get rolled, even mobs are giving me trouble. what am I doing wrong? I spent so much cash on gear and been working on getting my resistance up but I just can't seem to get my damage up enough neither. Seems like im at the point where I have to spend over a mill on each piece of gear just to improve? also lots of people are going high crit but crit chance and increased crit damage gear is retardly expensive and I Would be forced to loose alot of my all resistance on some of my gear as well as losing some vitality.. any suggestions??doom2646410 Aug 29, 2012
