Video from Sygo on how to farm unicorn lvl (as wizard/ranged)

  • #1
    Hi everyone! It's been a while since I made the world first kill, but finally here is a video from me, since a lot of people were asking for it. It's about farming unicorn lvl (as title states) obviously with commentary.
    As I state in the video, if there is something you want to see from me, go ahead and leave a comment to let me know, I read them all :)

    Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=016Y88xFMLI

    Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDi1Td-mN74

    Let me know what you think!

    Started leveling my Wizard yesterday purely with this in mind.
    Need to give your "spec" a go as well, seems very slow-oriented.

    It sure is :) I wouldn't recommend my build for anything else in inferno but act 1 and unicorn lvl.

    what kind of build do you use in A2-4 ? and what kind of items?

    because im kind of attack speed stacked atm and my damage is not that high but i do cast very fast.
    i have 3.69% attacks per second and 40k damage with magic weapon.

    Now i am thinking that this is not the way to go and that i might swap my gear for crit/crit damage

    any opinions?

    Wait, why arcane hydra over venom? With blizzard you can utilize the pools better, what does arcane bring?

    I suppose because those hydras can crit (which would be even nicer if he got "critical hits refund X arcane power") and he has the passive that whenever he deals arcane damage (or his hydras) that the target is slowed by 30% which works great together with blizzard

    You're welcome, and they sure do!

    Because of the passive which makes arcane dmg slow, that way I don't have to do anything active to slow them, and the blizzard isn't always on top of the monsters, in which case it's nice to have a hydra that slows. Also, I am stacking crit chance and dmg, and with 35,5% crit chance and 216 % crit dmg, arcane hydra does some decent dmg even though venom hydra is top notch when it comes to dmg.

    Wow, that's a fast attack-rate!
    Luckily, it is quite possible to focus on attackspeed - what you wanna do is use an arcane-builder as your main dmg (since attackspeed works well with builders), and for act 2-4 I would suggest the piercing orb rune for our second builder (I think that is what it is called, it's the big one that zig-zags). With that, for act 2-4 I would suggest getting some hp - when I try, lets say act 3, I switch out some of my gear to get some hp, so that I once again can use energy armor with force armor rune. Running around getting one-shot in act 2-4 makes it so much harder than unicorn lvl :)

    So the build I would use, would be something like piercing orb, venom hydra, diamond skin with the extra absorb, energy armor with force armor rune, teleport with fracture (the one I also use in the video), and magic weapon with the extra dmg and knockback.

    However, if you can get a group of people, then you can just focus on damage, and in my opinion, that's a lot more fun :D

    Could you please explain that arcane builder?
    I have not heard of anything like that
    I just stack AS & int

    My weapon:


    So my current weapon is not good for me?

    PS:
    -my AS is 3.73% ^^
    -i made it to act 4 tough with my build but i think im kind of getting bored of it. It is nice tough because i can spam my skill without getting out of arcane power.

    I meant arcane-power-builder, as in magic missile etc. And your current weapon works just fine! I would like to know what your build is if you made it to act 4 with it, it must work quite well then :D

    Sure :)

    quiet a standard build in my eyes: http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/wizard#blROSX!YXf!bbbYZa

    shock pulse - piercing orb because that it is the best AoE signature spell. This means i can spam a lot ( and fast ^^ ) of these orbs without using arcane power.

    Blizzard - snowbound because normally it costs like 45 arcane power and then i can do like 2 blizzards and i need to run as fast as i can and with the rune i can spam it as much as i want.

    rest of the skills are standard

    passive:
    Glass cannon is nice to boost the damage

    Astral presence is optional because im thinking to switch it because i barely need AP and with the blizzard runes i can definatly switch it out to cold blooded

    Galvanizing ward is nice because i sometimes forget to recast force armor ^^. this is optional too

    Stats:


    I did made it too Act 4 and still progressing

    This build does not make it easy to progress tough. I still had a hard time but what really helped me is my 18% movement speed. It works like charm! There are champ packs that i cannot kill like fast + fast or invunerable minions etc. There are always champs you cant kill so deal with it :P

    Also i did need help with belial because of the stupid adds :P
    That is all ^^

    That's pretty neat! I think you should keep at it with the same build if it works, that's what I would do :D Or you could try finding another build you find more interesting, as long as it works somehow ;)

    I've found one legendary there, a 800 dps warmonger - which is less dps than average blues :/ So legendarys aren't really what I'm looking for :D
