Oct 10, 2012 Lonely Wizard looking for upgrade advice Hi I'm looking for other people to farm and do whatever else with. I've only ever played d3 single player and public games really are not my thing. You can add me Kurt#1373. I'm also looking for advice on what to upgrade next, I have 20m to spend. I'm not feeling chest or pants upgrade since it seems I'll pay millions for not very much DPS and EHP. I'm looking for bang for the best buck type deals. I play exclusively Archon right now and not really looking to play CMWW. Thanks.Kurt1 Oct 10, 2012

Oct 10, 2012 Energy Twister and Build Diversity I'll miss the play mechanics of storm chaser if I revert to wicked wind after the patch. Wicked wind is boring to me compared to the roaming tornadoes that sweep through destructible objects and collect debris. It's also a fun challenge to optimize positioning for maximum twister effect. Storm chaser has been so much more fun. The simple fact is that wizards are going with energy twister primarily to generate procs for critical mass builds, so wouldn't it be better design to make the different rune variations an even trade-off so they're worth considering, and individual players can choose according to personal preference? Identical proc coefficients fail to do that in this case. What about giving a slightly higher coefficient to the unruned version so we have two viable choices? What about lowering the damage of meteor: star pact and raising the coefficient so we have three? What about choosing numbers that don't necessarily divide evenly into .5 like .18 or .207? Having the coefficient the same for all forms of energy twister will likely result in disproportionate use of wicked wind, while all the other cool stuff sits idle on the shelf. I would really love to use raging storm for my build, but I don't think it would be worth the loss of performance.Shaydin11 Oct 10, 2012

Oct 9, 2012 Triumvirate Not That Good In My Case? I have a "normal" source with 268 INT, 128 Vit + Socket, which yields me over 300 INT from that source. The dmg is 103-305 and 8% crit. No question, this source is pretty hot for a normal "rare". So i am using the dmg calculalator what a "budget" Triumvirate would do for me, assuming 160 INT, 8% crit and 90-300 ish dmg. The loss of approx 150 INT would cost me 6K, and the added 6% for whatever dmg would barely make up for it, ultimately making such a triumvirate worse than my current source? can that be right? Edit: lol@calculalatorFlexyana2 Oct 9, 2012
Oct 9, 2012 Intelligence vs. +Damage I've had a look at both pieces of gear, but I'm still not sure. On certain pieces (Ring with +2-4 damage bonus) and another ring with +9 intelligence, the flat bonus damage is showing a larger increase for overall damage output (according to the "Change in stats after equip"). What I'm wondering is whether its better to go for a flat +damage item or a +intelligence item? According to the game's stat checker, a +damage is better, depending on the amount boosted. Of course, this is also assuming I can't find an item that does both. Anyone have any info regarding this?RYGON9115 Oct 9, 2012
Oct 9, 2012 What's so good about Triumvirate? Hello, I'm wondering, is it the added elemental damages thats making this source good?

Oct 9, 2012 What am I supposed to be doing now? Hello, I've recently been playing and have come back from pre-paragon levels and many patches before that. I'm wondering, what am I supposed to be doing now? I'm very lost as to what the most recent good builds are, as well as where I should be farming and what items I should be upgrading. If someone could give me a little push into what I should be doing for now, that would very much appreciated :) Thanks! -Poruku Here is my profile: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Poruku-1312/Poruku0 Oct 9, 2012

Oct 9, 2012 So no old school Caster builds in D3? This is something I feel is missing from the game. I feel like it's impossible to make a Wizard w/ a typical Mage casting build like we would use on our Sorceress in D2 (Say Meteorb). It seems like the only builds that can keep up w/ other classes are CM and Archon. Those are both fun builds, but they're not exactly very mage like (Ok CM kind of is since it spams, but it's still kind of a tank/melee build). Is there a casting build that does good enough damage to not need CM or archon?OnSugarHill18 Oct 9, 2012
Oct 9, 2012 Time bubble stacking I wasnt gonna post this because of the nerf hammer. However, since we are being gimped on so many spells maybe this will be a way to keep people interested in playing wizard. So today I was able to convince 2 other wizards in a public game to use Slow time with the stretch time rune. It was nuts when all 3 time bubbles went up at the same time the attack speed buff icon at the bottom of the screen says 3 my attack speed per second went from 1.61 to 2.06. I think its a cool thing for group collaboration in a multi player game. I wonder if the Time Warp rune stacks as well? Anyway I know the first rule of the wizard club lol, but since this build requires more than one wizards to work together and the chances of multiple wizards in a public game even listening to what you have to say or even understand English is pretty rare. I dont think blizzard would bring down the nerf hammer yet. Just trying out different builds and possible team play is what I enjoy, I would like to see if more people are willing to test this out with 4 wizards in a group.Paradox0 Oct 9, 2012

Oct 9, 2012 I need some suggestions - disentigrate build So I actually enjoy playing this game of ours but I need some suggestions for what to upgrade next or how to proceed. I've never had a ton of gold. In fact, for the most part I've spent my time leveling each class in stead of farming (each through inferno act 1 but w mediocre gear). I don't have a ton saved up (4 mil and change) and I've never sold any big ticket items. Wiz is my main and every piece if gear on him is either self found or purchased for 600k or less. I play a different build. I'm trying to use lesser used skills like disentigrate and WoF because I like them. I can easily solo farm act 2 right now but act 3 is pretty rough by myself. I recently found out that I do ok in a group though. I'm excited about the upcoming patch changes to my skills but am hoping for some critiques on what I can improve gear wise, considering my current gold restrictions as well as possibly some skill changes w/o completely changing everything. I'm just not interested in running some of the cookie cutters even if it would help me. I really need new rings but am waiting for the patch. A nice skorn would help as well, but still out of my range. Thanks for any help.Lycaeus4 Oct 9, 2012
Oct 9, 2012 Looking for helpful tips and advice. So I decided to reroll into a Wizard from a DH, reason being that I get too annoyed using like 80% of my money on repairing and such, haha. I'm just wondering if there are any other builds besides the CM/Archon that would work now and after the 1.05 patch, (most likely looking for a kiting build, since I enjoy kiting rather than sitting in one place spamming 1,2,3,4). Any advice or tips will be greatly appreciated, thanks!Dustin13 Oct 9, 2012

Oct 9, 2012 Wizard 2h Glitch? I just noticed something while browsing crit damage profiles. Some wizards have a high amount of crit damage (700%+). Was looking at the profiles to see where it was all coming from and noticed they were equipping 2 two-handed weapons. Seems like they all had the following criteria: 1. Equip Skorn in main-hand 2. Equip a Rare Two-Handed Axe The off-hand doesn't show up in the profile picture, but the name shows up. Is this a bug or am I missing something. If it stacks Crit Damage, does it also stack the other attributes of the item? Below are the profiles that I saw with this setup. SkyQuake#1457 LordSmoo#1815 COELCO#1938 ~ChugChuggychug2 Oct 9, 2012

Oct 9, 2012 Need some advice... Hey everyone, I've been trying farm act 3 so I can buy better gear but I can't find a build that is fast enough to actually call it "farming. It takes me about 2 hours to get through all of act 3. I don't have any CC/CD gear so a critical mass build is out of the question for me. Anyone have any good build ideas that can work with my current gear?Cardiganzx1 Oct 9, 2012
Oct 9, 2012 Need some suggestions Hey all, I know I need some new gear and perhaps some suggestions on abilities. I can roll A1 pretty easily now and die maybe 3 times on an A2 run. A3 is obviously beyond me right now. My gear compliments my game play however, but am missing a few things. I try to bargain hunt. Any suggestions are welcome.

Oct 9, 2012 PTR Feedback 450+hr Wizard http://www.diabloprogress.com/hero/schenko7-1939/Aaridan/846533 Not the best wizard nor claim to be....just an experienced one that would like to offer what I have experienced on the PTR thus far. Build: Forked lighning Storm Chaser Archon-Improved Force weapon Energy Armor-pinpoint/force-mp 6-7 Sparkflint Mp lvl 4-5 Did not notice a difference here, though at times even with my DPS monster health seemed silly high. Other then the monster health, damage wasn't very noticeably different than the current setup in 1.0.4 Mp lvl 6 Big jump in health and slight damage difference from mp 5-lower. This was to be expected, but I did not expect such a huge jump in my inability to keep Archon up. White mob began to slightly take more damage and was generally not a good flow. When facing Elites....due to the Reflect damage change....it felt anything with extra health/health link mixed with reflect damage owned me. Mp lvl 7 Still doable...but would be a lot of kiting for even an Archon wizard. You would need to remove sparkflint and place teleport/illusionist on your toolbar. White mobs were harder than mp lvl 6 due to health not so much their damage. Elite bosses were the same exact story(as mp 6) facing anything with extra health/link with reflect. Update: Even went with the classic kite build with just....basically kiting around the map for a very long time and having minimal success....not dying...but again the pace just feels terrible at this stage for a glass cannon. Hydra gets me killed with reflect mobs in seconds.... MM-Seeker Hydra-Venom/Arcane Blizzard-reduced ap EA-Force Teleport-Fracture Force weapon mp lvl 8+ Just silly attempting any type of Archon/kite build unless you are a very patient person. Summary: Pros: Extra health globe heal + adding it to potions Fixing the Elemental Bonus stat adding to Dps properly. Mp 5 w/2 stacks got me a green crossbow lvl 63 Xp gain past lvl 4-5 seems to be well worth the patch alone Enjoyed the new Armor modifications, it did seem like more of buff since I do run pinpoint barrier. Cons: MP lvls 1-7 should be adjusted with their health scaling...it is silly that a 270k(patch dps) Wizard cannot do mp lvl 7 at a comfortable pace. Damage seems low....I would like higher scaled damage, but lesser health. (i think this would balance out us range/glass cannon classes vs barbs....at least somewhat even the playing field.) Really disappointed in mp 6-7, I felt this would be the idle spot for an Archon with above average DPS....but I don't see one farming it unless they have 350-400dps+. Energy Armor still feels like it is the only armor worth it...especially past mp lvls 4-5. This is just my experience with the PTR....I feel that a good change would be lower the health scaling by 10% per level and upping the damage by 10% in turn. Thank youSchenko764 Oct 9, 2012
