If you're tired of freezing stuff..

Wizard
Check out this build guys.. it is truly amazing.
Leveled almost 3 paragon 100 chars with it and it is most viable on high MP 9-10.
No life steal or life on hit on gear is required.

Wow I like it on first impression. Thanks.
You have an insane amount of elite kills.
Looks like a variant of the Shaggalicious Meteor build: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/7416266578

By the way, just a word of advice for the future if you want to share videos. At least explain what you're doing, the gear/skills you use, the gameplay, the feel, etc. so you can get more feedback.

4.6k hours played since game release,yea :) I also have another account(moses#2265) that I played for about a month,long story,so,yea.Plenty of diablo time.And of course with RoS,its just the beginning really.

@Jaetch:
Not a variant of any build I am kind of tired defending it,you have no idea,the people coming to my stream trying to create drama,beeing all annoying saying I copy other people's builds..
Some elements are the same,yea,we both use meteors as damage dealers,but the skills that are different are making it a different gameplay experiece.And for the record,I never heard of that build you linked there before.
Try it yourself,go make an mp9-10 run on fields of misery(lovely one shotting charge beasts),find yourself a reflect pack with no life steal on your gear and count to 1 before you melt.The guy (Aimless)actualy says that himself and I quate from the original post:

IMO these builds are best suited for middle MP's.

And I made a 1.5 m gold wizard that could run on mp10 with this build without diying and does mp4-5 like its nothing at all :

And regarding your words of advice,thanks.but I think I explain myself very well on the vid.I don't need feedback(though I must say it is very heart warming to get positive comments from others who have tried my build),I am sharing my builds,and streaming them every day and whoever is interested can watch the vid and check it out himself. And the ones that have watched,are interested,and want to ask questions and gear advice about the build,well.. for these guys I'm here to answer.

Moses, there's no need to be so defensive; Jaetch wasn't attacking you.

If you have a stream, then you need a thick skin or ignore people who "try to create drama."

If you came up with this build on your own, OK, you didn't copy it. Jaetch was pointing out that it's been done before. Really, you're not the first wiz who thought of pairing Living Lightning and Prodigy to fuel Meteor. And to drop freeze altogether? Aimless posted it last January.

Nobody said you copied anything.
Nearly every build that's posted has been tested and tried before. Even the first person posting it doesn't mean they were the first to use it.

A lot of people come upon builds that have already been posted and tested extensively. This takes nothing away from the person who finds the build themselves without ever seeing a post. There is only so many combinations in game. The chance someone hasn't used it before it pretty slim. Also not everyone is a forum junky or simply may not wish to post their builds.

Build looks good, but then again I'm biased with anything that uses Meteors.

Luckily in ROS there is going to be alot more builds based on skills AND based on Item combinations found. I can't wait and would happily "Meteor" any beta tester if I could find them!

Same so awesome dropping bombs and expo bombs get better!!! Can't wait. I know i pooped on PTR but if we shell out the cash for RoS wiz is go to class IMO.

There's a lot of "Hey my build is so great" threads here. I think for some people to consider watching a video they want more details than just someones assurance that it's a good build, that's all. After looking at your profile, I assumed you knew a thing or two about the game so I watched the videos.

It looks like a neat build. Seems like it requires a bit more skillful playing that a standard freeze meteor build. I'm quite surprised that 1.5 LS is enough but it looked like it kept your HP up quite nicely. I wonder though how high you need your DPS to be for 1.5 to sustain your HP.

Are there any specific reasons why this meteor build is better than the standard freeze build?

I don't think the OP ever says its actually better than other builds. He gives it as alternative to freezing is all.

Yea I know. I was just wondering if he had tried them both and stuck with his build, why he preferred it.
Yeah, Ley, there was a time when forum regulars were tired of Frost Nova (OP/IMBA!) and wanted to play without it.
I guess that's as good a reason as any.
Hey fellow wizards above :)
To be honest,I never participated in any kinds of forums,and only recently I became a little more active on d3 officlai forums,having some spare time to browse some posts taking a little read and doing some sharing\writing of my own.It is a great place to hang out,and there are some really awesome people with great desire to help over here,and also on the EU forums(but less..).

@jenpeezey:
I do have a stream but I don't have a thick skin and what can I say,somtimes I take things a little too personaly,about this game,sorry if I came out a little defensive,Jaetch,lets clear the air around this subject.

I will take that into consideration next time I come up with somthing new.This is a valid point.

And to your questions,I don't say this build is better then CM or other builds,but I do love the fact that it does requires higher skill and some practice to manage and master.And also unlike CM I love the fact that some situations, no matter how good you are,the mobs will crush you,and that gives me a sense of a higher chalange.
All that in a build that is (in my opinion,as a mostly solo player) as efficient as CM.
No life replenishment gear is required,just decent basic defences.thats all.
As I show on the Newbie's challenge video posted above,as well as go through all that is required for the build to work.
And lastly,no,I have never tried Aimless's build or saw it before on any other wizard,nor got tired of CM and looked at other alternative.The insperation of this build came from my D2's "fire soso"
I wanted to burn stuff with fire.. was tired of the cold,and started messing around with the skills on lower mp's first,then used different types of skills\runes for armor spells,teleport diamond skin,etc'
The idea using arcane dynamo was Koencrazy's(a viewer on the channel),I was innitialy using conflegration,and I was doing some tests,I saw that dynamo is superior,so I kept it.

Hello <3

Welcome to the Forums. You'll need to get used to the picking apart your build ideas here as that's what we do. Most of us try and write it in a non threatening manner, some don't :). There is a lot of theorycrafting tested and posted.

You'll enjoy it here as long as you can handle some criticism and don't rage post when someone disagrees with you.
Yeah, AD goes so well with Living Lightning. I'm not surprised someone suggested it. You can use Living Lightning/Prodigy/Arcane Dynamo with Disintegrate/Sleet Storm, especially if you don't want to lower APS on gear. Some of us built Sleet Storm sets with lowish APS, but I went back to higher APS with Living Lightning/Prodigy (even with 20 APOC). Just different ways to make builds work.
I'm the only one ever to make a build and make it my own. Don't see any other low vit build archon troll around here.
5m kills.

Typical EU, my home. :-)

Welcome to the Forums.


Thanks so much m8.

Happy holidays everyone :)
Hello there,

Tried ur build and liked it very much and I can say I know "quite a bit" about meteor ones ! ; )
I had tried a very similar one a long time ago (like over 6 months) according to one posted by Aimless here (LL + ice armor + AD and maybe prodigy too but not sure about the latter).

It's working excellent for me @MP10, so well I decided to drop crystal shell for archon-destruction (I have enough mit to endure most packs). Not adding a lot, save the diversity to break the monotony of meteor spamming. I will prolly try time warp also since +20% dmg and the CC effect will prolly be nice too.

Anyway, thx for reminiding me this type of build ! ^^
