Disintergrate Volatility

  • #1
    Hello there fellow wizards,

    I have been playing around with Disintergrate since doing some runs on mp0 with the new "20% faster than alkazier run" that has been getting around latley. It seems to be working pretty good and I was suprised so I thought I would share it. See link below:

    I suppose it is a slight alternative to archon (it feels a bit like archon sometimes) and can definately be improved and worked on eg. changing power of the storm to scramble ect for farming effeciency. Something a little different anyway.

    You may need some decent DPS for the build and I found the waller affix to be annoying with using disintergrate but overall its a nice change. Using Volatility Rune with Disintergrate i think makes this build shine and its nice to see some BIG crit numbers too.
    May the heroes rise from the pit of despair and the bards sing of the day of death renewed to everlasting
    immortality....awaiting your return to the lands of Sanctuary may peace be with you on this day...your day of birth.

    How much does critical mass proc with disintegrate? I remembered that archon beam does not proc critical mass much. This build is very interesting if you get to use teleport a lot. However, if it does not proc much, I fail to see why this is better than archon.

    I used a similar build for a while, it's really fun actually, because you have Archon-like play style but you can still use all you other wizard spells. Even though DPS is not as high as in Archon, it's more relaxed because you don't have to be careful about Archon cooldown.

    I'd second Orb's suggestion - CM is not really useful with this build, at least when I tried it last time. Try Illusionist, it really speeds everything up (and you might not even need Scramble anymore).

    Not very much at all actually. I have swapped out CM for Power Hungry which seems to work better. Yeah its not as good as archon but as said, its an alternative; something different.

    Yeah im loving the change for a bit. Your right, its nice to use more of your other skills. I will try illusionist and check it out, thanks for the suggestion.

    I havn't tried this build on any higher than mp0 but i reckon it would be ok on earlier mp's with enough dps with the volitilty proc happening - its nice to have that 8 yard blast radius :o especially when the disintergrate ray feels so thin.

    No need for CM or Astral Presence. I found Power Hungry to be sufficient enough (I also run with with no APOC). Also, I think that when Volatility procs, the damage reflected (from RD mobs) has no effect. (I couldn't feel any difference)

    Im yet to try illusionist fully, (trying to match the right EHP for it to proc more) it could mean (using wormhole) faster farming then archon on mp0.

    Do you have Tal Rasha 4 set bonus or any gear that reduces Disintegrate cost? Made a huge difference for me as well (-5 Disintegrate AP cost SoJ, 4 pieces of Tal set, no need for any AP gain through skills).

    not currently because im not really running out of AP with my DPS on mp0 and with the mob density on my run, there is plenty of health orbs. However saying that.....I am keeping an "eye" on a SoJ atm with -5D AP cost on the AH ending soon ;)

    I have never completed the tal set as yet (not sure why since it was my absolute fav in d2) i have thought about it many times. maybe this is the excuse i need :)

    yeah same. I see you use Archon & Disintergrate. Interesting. What Mp do you usually run?

    Gave this build a try on my Wiz, she's only at 110k, and it works okay. Probably need alittle more dmg to make it work better then what i have.

    As for passives. Give your scoundrel a Buriza-Do Kyanon (Or any bow that has cold damage) and take the Cold Blooded passive.
