    It took a long time and a lot of gold to finally hit it, but I like where my wizard is right now.

    Congrats! I can only dream with this DPS for my wiz right now. Everything seems to much expensive for me !

    Edit: By the way, nice weapon, sir! What's the history behind it ?

    You should see the topics plaguing the official forums that look like:

    "Rate my wizard part 385682346!" "Rate the wizard above you version 62739!" "Who else is in the 500K unbuffed DPS club?!" "Just got into the 1.5 million EHP club, haha!" "Who has 4,000 int?! I DO!"

    Etc.

    Lol Jaetech. More IS always better. I don't think I will be catching up to you anytime soon though. I can pick 10k-30k more dps pretty easily (tal chest = 20kish, replace rare ring = 10k-15kish) but I'll drop ehp pretty significantly, so for the time being I'm in a holding pattern again.

    And yeah... the "club" comment was in reference to the posts on the bnet forums. It has been a long road hitting 500k ehp while increasing dps at the same time though, so I felt like posting some sort of celebratory topic.

    @Bribous

    Not really much of a story behind the wand. It is new within the last week though. The only story is that it popped up on the AH one day and caught my eye. When I checked it out on diabloprogress (checking for dupes etc, cuz I try to avoid them) to see how it stacked up in the inventoried wand database I noticed that the owner had it listed for sale there too (albeit at 2+ bil). Then it dissapeared from the AH before I got the gold together to put in a bid. It did get reposted (much higher min bid) but since I had found the seller I managed to arrange a private sale for considerably less. I'm sure I still overpaid a bit, judging by the wand market on the AH right now but I'm happy with the wand. It's ranked 1-3rd in the US for socket+ls+cd wands, depending on how you look at it.

    I'm looking to sell my old wand yet:

    I have a private buyer interested already (a friend, so selling it a bit cheaper than I normally would) but he hasn't been able to come up with the gold as yet.

    I also have an even older:

    I had been hanging onto it because of the raw weapon dps but the new wand fits nicely in the middle of the two so I will probably let it go now as well.

    Don't mind him. This guy does not know when to stop. :) (I'm kidding, I'm kidding, don't throw the Seek n' Destroy wizard at me, sir!)

    Wow! Just wow! Someday I'll get there. Right now I flushed all my gold on my DH (to break the 200k DPS barrier), but I'll return.

    And I like your build. It seem a lot of fun, to make rain Ice and Meteors the demons heads! :D

    I've used that Blizzard build for a long time. I think it's actually my favorite spec... or at least seems to be the most fun for me. I use it for lower MP farming mainly and it had gotten a little dull in MP0. Now that I can run in it in MP6 pub, I have rediscovered how much I enjoy it (when things don't die instantly). I could run it in MP10, but without Frost Nova/CM, it just feels too risky. I actually run it with a Tal Source which puts me at 286k dps but adds 7k life, 1.5CC and 3 seconds to Blizard normally.

    For MP8-10, I swap out Blur for Critical Mass, replace Blizzard with Frost Nova and Forked Lightning with Living Lightning. If I'm in a group, particularly with another CM/WW or SNS wiz I will sometime swaps disintegrate for Electrify too... and with 2 other freezy wiz's I may drop prismatic for shocking aspect. I used to swap Glass Cannon for Critical Mass but with my mitigation where it is now, lately I've been dumping the defensive Blur for the dps pop from Glass Cannon.

    Nice! I'm there as well.

    Grats Dolynick, I'd give anything to have that gear.

    That said -

    Please explain Disintegrate+Meteor+Living Lightning,

    As I try it now with my gear, I can't really make optimal use of all the dmg potential... do you drop one or two meteors and then switch to Disintegrate during the Meteor ticks and replenish with LL?

    It just feels clunky but I must be missing something...

    It's more of a backup when solo'ing. Meteor is not exactly ideal for some targets, especially if you can't get a freeze on them. Mostly it's an options thing. The laser for the white mobs, or thin packs. The LL+Meteors for elite packs where I want to keep a stutter freeze on them. With a modest number of targets in range of the nexus, it does reasonable job of refreshing nova and allowing a freeze lock on non-elites while putting out a x4 eDPS modifier on the primaries (more than enough for whites). I do not really alternate, unless I'm switching strategies for a given pack mid fight. That and I've just always been fond of disintegrate so I don't have a problem squeezing it into a spec when there is room.

    In a group, particularly with a cm/ww or sns buddy or two, I'll drop disintegrate for MW Electrify and concentrate on DPS output while they do a freeze-lock on them.
