Thanks for this impresive video. Watched it in 2 parts and learned a lot of things even having played the spec for some time by now. Too bad im sooooo lazy to flip the AH to make real money and my update progression of my Wiz is really slow.
i find it fun listening to the video while playing d3. that's what i've been doing as of late, listening to videos/streams.
i think you could have covered what rares to pick up while in archon form since i have encountered a lot of newb archon players that are having problem with maintaining archon due to picking everything up, i think that's another factor but not a top priority one i guess
I was hell-bend on playing my wizard as Disintegrate/Blizzard spec. Much like Archon form, just without it
This video changed my mind:
Yesterday I followed your video step by step, chose from what gear I had and what I needed, chose the skills that suited me. I really liked that you encourage players to suite the chosen armour buff to their own play style. On top also how to select gear, which gear is EHP based and which is DPS based etc. In general you give very detailed tips on how you suite a wizard to your play style with Archon. You guide answers a lot of questions that are asked numerous times a day on the battle.net forums (black damage, LS VS LoH and much more..)
This guide is pure brilliance:
You tell your perspectives, how you see it best to equip/spec but you leave the entire process up to the individual player and open up suggestions to how you can customize the spec to your play style. You encourage rather than dictate, I have huge respect for this.
You have, in my opinion, and that is after seeing, reading a lot of guides on both this class and others, given BY FAR the best guide ever. People tend to make guides that just say “THIS IS HOW YOU DO! If you do it otherwise, then you suck! Play like me!” Dictating peoples play style – Your perspective to adopt players into liking this spec and showing them the difference in choices is brilliant, you encourage players!
This is probably the best guide the entire Diablo 3 Community has ever seen.
Thumbs up for giving such a detailed guide, that leave the player with his own assumption of how its best suited for him!
having watched the WHOLE (1.5 hrs) again, I actually tend to agree with the fanatics: I'm sure I haven't seen a better D3 guide (to any build or class) before, it really covers everything I know about Archon and then some of course, and the narrative is indeed really encouraging. Even though I'm still mainly playing SNS, I just sinked around 600m into archon gear.
Jaetch I agree with everyone here the video is amazing!! I have now disabled the first skill on my scoundrel because I actually picked that pointer up during the video Now every time someone asks me for advice I send them a link to your video and tell them to get comfortable and get some popcorn and come back and talk to me in about 90 minutes if they still have questions. Either way just wanted to give you two thumbs up and say thank you for your awesome contributions to the wizard community.
Just wanted to say, "Thank you" for putting this video together. I usually follow a 8:1 ratio (rule of thumb) for the time it takes to prepare a presentation compared to the time of the actual presentation. I found your video to be very well thought out. It must have been a labor of love, but there are those of us out there in the community that got a lot out of it. Thank you.
I also liked how you used filler "Tips and Tricks" during down time in the movie. +1 for that!
