Just finished the sucky 13 hour download and my girlfriend fell asleep in front of the TV --> win!

I'm on EU as Szephjin#2168

^ Thanks for the clarification

I ask for more of a PvP build

Mana shield essentially absorbs all damage through your mana pool. Wizards should not have a lot of health but a shit load of mana. Mana shield essentially allows for a secondary life pool.

Ice orb is just deadly if you know how to teleport and cast at the same time.

I was never a big fan of lightning and it sounds more for grinding through dungeons etc.

I hate that guy so much. I had to ask for help from a friend to kill him in NM.
IME so far, he's definitely the hardest boss.

Monk in the US server

worakl#2366 (That's an L, as a shitty play on 'Oracle')

 

Wizard on EU.

 

Did a new build that I'm really happy with, worked awesome with a glass cannon-DH and a tank-barb just now.

Lot's of defense with an attacking twist on everything. I like mirror image as an "Oh shit!"-button because it's not only for me, as it is with diamond skin. The stacking ice armor-rune is incredible, and combined with the galvanizing ward-passive I'm never really in danger of dying unless I'm completely swarmed.

 

It's pretty high level, but I think you could do a take on it with other runes at lower levels.

GetToasty#1203

Wiz lvl 5+ US servers .. my build


Edit:

Well it seems as I am playing, you can alternate and combine different skills for different situations? This is very much like the free MMO's I've played (Vindictus)

Seems like you do not have to worry about skill or character point allocations anymore.

It's all gear based now it seems wow.gif

WOW

1: caltrops with 2 second of total freeze rune
2: vault with shoot as you leap rune
3: throwing knives in a circle or something else depending on expected situation (and this is linked to an extra mouse button too)
passives: one that restores hatred with health globes and the one that increases damage 20% when no enemies are within 10 yards.
usually drop some caltrops and vault away from enemies to keep my damage bonus. Then if it is a really big crowd I will drop multishots, otherwise I will rapid fire through them one by one. If stuff gets low, I can vault back and forth through the crowd of enemies and pick up health globes which gives me back my powers (even with the reduced cost rune, multishot drains hatred really fast)
Elemental arrow is the best special for PVE. The lightning ball is ridiculous.
it's like a frozen orb in lightning form.

toasty, is Archon any good? I haven't tried it, and the whole "replaces your skills" sounds super weird.

 

Edit: oh, you're only level 5 so far...

just beat belial in NM. Level 43 WD going into act 3.
post #598 of 1647
Well the way I believe you should play wizard classes is always high DPS first and foremost then defense

You just need to know how to maneuver the wiz vs. mobs and you'll be fine

I am looking for the most amount of damage sans mana cost

Did not like what I read from the wiz's mirrored image skill. It doesn't do any damage unless there is a rune that links to it for that purpose. It seems more of an offensive skill
post #599 of 1647
I've been playing a wizard. I am a good ways into act 2 but I really have no clue what I'm doing. I just mash buttons and if I die to a group of mobs I'll tweak my skills. I have been using

missiles (with damage boost)
aoe ball of death thing (with damage boost), although I just got orange ray of death and will try that
time biodome thingy
random armors since IDK what to do
aoe explosion thingy

I need something to read that tells me things like what stats to prioritize and such for loot. I just end up disenchanting my blues and vendoring my whites.

Took down big-D earlier today on Normal. It was a little tough and took me more tries than I would like with my level 31 DH. Problem was that I have shunned a lot of health gear for damage and only have a little over 2000 hp. It seemed that getting caught in his bone cages hit me for about 2000 so unless I was at full health and had a potion charged, I was dead if I got caught in one of those. Also, losing my healbot Templar was a dick move.

Anyone know how he is on fire resistance? I sort of assumed fire based attacks would be less helpful.

I shuffled around some skills ended up going with:
Caltrops
Vault
The ability that lets you take 30% of your damage as health for 3 seconds (to make up for the potion cooldowns and lack of trash mobs to generate health globes)
Strafe (with full speed rune)
Left: guided arrow but downgraded the rune from the one that splits the arrow to the one that increases piercing to get multiple hits on him.
right: the single knife throw with the rune that makes you bleed for additional physical damage. (was too risky to stop long enough to throw off a big rapid fire).
Passives were the one that bumps your hatred and gives you hatred/discipline bonus for health globes, the one that gives 20% damage if you are 10 yards away, and the one that regenerates health if you haven't been hit in 3 seconds.

Then my strategy was to just keep moving. I could stay out of harm for long enough periods to get good heath regen and full seed strafe let me keep attacking while moving around. If he is off screen, I use the mini-map to know where he is and lob guided arrows in his direction (or throw knives if I know exactly where he is and can see his health bar dropping). If I catch him with a good caltrops, it is time to pop the 30% health regen ability and dump as many knives into him as possible.

Was still a pretty tough fight, but this setup let me keep moving and I was eventually able to knock him down. Would have been a piece of cake with a bit more health and maybe some different item attributes (or another player since it would be pretty easy to stay alive and revive people) but I didn't want to take the time to find new items or swap out gems.
