Changed my build, im now running as a tank wizard, 20k health, 2.8k damage, using a shield. Only some variations of combos would do damage to me, most the time i could just rotate through Frost nova, diamond skill while keeping blizzard down with the 20% chance to freeze, energy armor with galivnizing ward. Just got to 50, so testing out crit mass to see if that helps me out.
Once i hit 51, im swapping to spectral blades with life steal, and at 55 changing to weapon imbue for more life steal to see how that works out.
It HIGHLY amuses how there were posts before the game launched claiming wizards dps sucked.
I love annihilating huge packs of mobs in 1-2 seconds on my wizard.
People were very, very wrong.
The main complaint is that Wizard dps isn't good compaired to how squishy they are. They do deal about equivilent damage to every other class, but require much more work in kiting because they cannot afford to take any damage what-so-ever, especially in the later difficulties. The whole idea of a "glass cannon" type character is they deal superior damage, but are very easy to kill. Blizzard got the "glass" right with the Wizard, but not the "cannon"
