Need information on starting inferno on a budget

  • #1
    hey all ... i havent been playing in a long time and am interested in starting back again ... id like to play my wizard in inferno ... farming at a low monster power (preferably 1-3) i currently have only about 1mil gold ... looking for advice on what items i should get, what build i should use, and what stats i should focus on for a starting wizard on mp 1-3 ... preferably let me know what items i should pick up ... hoping i can get started on my current budget at least at mp1

    I love doing budget builds for fun to see how much dps/ehp I can get out of it so I actually have some practice with 1m budgets :) I'd go for this, with the respective buyout prices I'd look for:

    highest dps weapon you can get with crit dmg and life steal, check int as well might give you more dmg (I'd go with 200k),
    triumvirate with 200+ avg dmg + str (100k);
    zuni 3-piece, prioritize vit and/or armor (500k total),
    andariel's visage with all res (50k or so) or socket if you want,
    amu and rings with int/crit/crit dmg, try to get vit or life% on 2 pieces and all res and/or armor on 2 pieces (buyout 20k each),
    shoulders, bracers, pants and belt with as much int/vit/all res and/or armor as possible, get crit on bracers and ideally life% on shoulders (buyout 20k each).

    you won't be able to get all of this unless you're really lucky (and patient) but still I was amazed what you can get for 1m, I think my best try was something like 180k dps buffed, 45k life, 500 AR and 3.5k armor.

    good luck sniping!

    Thanks! what would you recommend for a build ... ive been looking at a CMWW but by my understanding thats for a more geared wizard... should i try archon or just stick with a basic kiting blizz hydra build starting out

    these items are for archon. on low mp I this build is what I used to use http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/wizard#UmSjTQ!Ygf!ZZZaYZ. for cmww it's completely different gear. surviving mp10 is possible with 1m but your dps will be like 20-50k so that sucks :) farm a bit with archon until you get some gold and if you want you can switch to cmww later
