Help me improve my CM Wizard please...

Wizard
Hi all, I have a little bit of gold left after a selling frenzy and want to improve my CM build Wizard...

What gear should I switch around? I'm wondering if the 4-piece Tal Rasha's set is actually helping me or hurting me for this build...

Life: 38,094
Damage: 128,299
Atacks per Second: 2.85
Crit Hit Chance: 34.99%
Crit Hit Dmg: 145%
Resistances: 699-756
Life per Kill: 478
Life per Hit: 598

Any advice is much appreciated! Thanks!
You should read a CM/WW guide, see the build compendium sticky. There's a lot of information available that you can use before you could need individual help.

(And to answer your question: no, Tal's set bonuses are not worth it. 3% damage bonus is practically nothing, and the 2 AP per second is completely eclipsed by CM.)
Use a storm crow to reach 20 APOC and 800+ LOH which makes the build work properly. If you could drop a few points of IAS for crit chance. You definetly can get crit on you rings or just swap out the zuni's altogether. YOu can also definetly get AR and crit on your lacuni's and your missing out on 10 CC on your tal's amulet.
And I wouldn't look at my profile as a guide because I don't play a CM wizard anymore
You are way over the last breakpoint 2.73. Next one would be at 3.01.
I would recommend to drop some IAS and get some CC (at least 50%) and CD.
Also you could use a SC (Storm Crow) as darcfeonix said. Look for 450 LOH 10 APOC.

Pretty much what darcfeonix said.

Look at my profile for orientation, but i'm not THAT good either so. Hahaha.

Thank you for the advice all!

I moved some items around... While improving some aspects, I made others worse... Crit chance mainly... I'm really low, around 34%.

Life: 33,472
Armor: 4,101
Damage: 144,187
Atacks per Second: 3.03
Crit Hit Chance: 34%
Crit Hit Dmg: 183%
Resistances: 851-959
Life per Hit: 660

I'm doing better now as far as pure damage and survivability. Easily took on 60+ monsters on MP8... I guess I could now drop some All Resist and Attack Speed items if it pumps up my crit chance. Now that I'm above 3.01 breakpoint though, I'm afraid to move things around again :/
At 3.01 you might pull off mp8 with 34% crit but I would still suggest at least 40% at 3.01. With 10 APOC and low crit chance you'll probably find yourself out of AP constantly against elites on mp 10. If you don't want to go storm crow at least get an 8+ APOC force.

That's true... I do find myself without AP on smaller packs. I'm going to look at storm crows when I get home. Thank you!
