    posted a message on Firebird 6pc bugged?

    Confirm. I was incredibly confused at first and thought I was doing something wrong, but the procs are definitely bugged on Firebird's atm. Sometimes they proc at full stacks and last too long, sometimes it takes 5, 6 seconds for the game to realize you're attacking an elite, and most of the time you don't get any stacks on white trash at all.


    Utterly broken right now.

    I've been farming on my Sader for about 2 weeks straight without getting a single Golden Flense. Got multiple Furnace and Corrupted Ashbringer, all sorts of rare items, dropped around 50-60k shards on weapons, nothing.


    It's so annoying I've started playing a WD more and more to have fun, lo and behold the very first item that drops is a Dagger of Darts.

    Yeah FoTH is fun for sure, fondly remember spending my first few months on crusader with that skill.

    Hopefully they add a new set based around it next season.

    Shield Bash slow? Huh? Whu? Literally one-shotting packs and RGs and charging from pack to pack is slow? oO


    It's not optimal if you want to clear out the entire Rift, sure. But just for pack farming it's amazing.

    I'm sure there are other specs that have currently more OP setups, but in my group nobody's running a WD and we don't really have any proper CC running, so I was looking to get into it.

    Was thinking something like Electrocute build with TF, Ball of Hate, Thundergod's, Stone Gauntlets, Wyrdward, Velvet Camral or the % to blind helmet.

    Could use the % Primary skill damage gem and Lightning Wreath. Just create as many lightning damage sources as possible and push IAS, plus some other potential CCs on hit like blind.

    I've been pondering the same line of thought.

    Firebird is unfortunately extremely dull to play and feels very passive. I would prefer to make a fun chain-cc build to help my group advance, but i'm not sure what skill/gear combos are actually viable for that right now.


    Does the old Chain Lightning build still work with perma stuns?

    I cannot wait for this patch, I'm only just started Firebirding 2 weeks ago and am already unbelievably bored by it.

    If I had to put my finger on the one issue D3 has these days, it's that specs are forced into very specific builds in order to progress, and Wizard is feeling really pointless in any other build atm.


    If I can get some alternative builds and options to at least get up to GR35 or so without Firebird-kiting, I'll be a very happy camper.

    posted a message on Early Season 2 build suggestions

    I'm currently running this:

    http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/wizard#WRjQOS!ZXiS!ZbYcZc

    due to having gotten an Aether Walker on like my first lvl 70 drop, started yesterday.

    http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Miffy-1110/hero/54915772


    This build is currently tearing through T1 Rifts at insane speeds, simply teleporting forever from pack to pack, melting them in seconds.

    It's by no means optimal, I'm just building around what drops for me, but with a few more dps upgrades (wearing complete crap on several slots) I can see this melting through T2-T4 at comparable speeds, it's a lot of fun and incredibly efficient for legendary farming.


    You'll definitely want as much APoC as you can get tho, makes it much smoother ofc.


    If you don't have decent Arcane drops, run it with Arcane Torrent's Fire or Lightning runes, works similarly well. The idea is just to turn into a basically immortal teleporting turret.


    Just ignore white mobs, pace your teleports, if you do run out of AP, Spectral Blade once or twice, good to go.


    It'll work decently without Aether too, but not nearly as fast ofc.


    Update:

    Well this build let me farm insanely fast, I'm now running Tal's set with endless teleporting, and can easily farm T2-T3 at similar speeds as T1 before.


    http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Miffy-1110/hero/54915772


    Sleet Storm works like a charm to proc maximum frequency of Meteors as long as you're applying all damage types ^^

    Been gambling 10-15k shards so far on my monk for either Frostburns (because I really want to play a cold build and give my fingers a rest from Sunwuko spam) or T+Ts for my DH, got probably 10-15 Gladiators and lower numbers of St.Andrew's and Fists of Thunder...aaand that's about it.

    On the other hand, I found two nearly perfectly rolled Unity rings rather quickly so my monk is already pushing GR34-35 on seasonal.

    posted a message on What Rift farming build Without Sunwuko set?
    Quote from MONK_P100
    There is no option except getting the Sunwuko set as soon as possible.

    Run T2/T3 rifts in group to get enough shards to gamble for the set, pretty easy.

    The 4-piece or 3-piece with RoRG is way superior than any other skills/items available to monk: immediate 3500% weapon damage to nearby enemies.

    The other set of 6 pieces (1000 Raiment?)is harder to collect, yet it just offer 3000% weapon damage in a less reliable manner triggered just by dashing strike. Along with almost BIS light gear, there is no problem for T6. But it is still less effective than just 4-piece Sun + Flying dragon.
    Eh, for just T6 many builds are totally viable. Pure Light, Cold or Fire builds with the right gear can farm T6 just fine. Now, for GR progression, that's a different matter..Sunwuko is pulling pretty madly ahead there atm.

    http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Miffy-1110/hero/48287847

    Currently pushing GR33 season with the Holy FD build - i'm a bit at a loss at to what to aim for with my gear now. I have a bad Peshkov, but no usable Sunwuko amulet, so staying away from Breath of Heaven change to build.

    Apart from upping my few Emeralds and the legendary gems, and hoping for higher stat rolls on the gear I have, I don't see many options to improve further, which is kind of frustrating because i'm already having a tough time DPS-wise at GR32, at least in moderate density ones. GR33/34 will be real nailbiters. I could possibly switch to a Diamond in the head slot and switch Sixth Sense for Beacon of Ytar, which might possibly get me pretty constant Desert Shroud, but I would likely have a few seconds of downtime in between, meaning i'll be fodder for elemental attacks.

    Spending shards on trying to get Frostburns/Rimeheart for a frost build in the meantime.

    Just barely managed to clear GR32 season today with the oh so popular Holy FD build, in a pretty low density one. Should be able to nab 33 or 34 tomorrow with a bit of density/mob type luck.

    Survivability seems fine, but i'm a bit at a loss at how to push my dps to actually manage more right now, apart from keeping up with upping my gems and paragon levels.

    Spending shards on gloves and 1h for Frostburns and Rimeheart in the meantime, because I really want to try a cold/cyclone build.

    What do you guys think about Wave of Light: Exploding Light? It was always my favourite ability pre-RoS, currently I'm running a lightning build with TF and SoH, but i'm thinking of building around a Cinderfury and some %fire weapons. With the resource cost reduction from Cindercoat, WoL should be far more impactful than Vulture Claw.

    Cheers for the input Krayner, pretty much what I'm going for.

    Already trying to reroll that amulet, have to have had about 25 attempts without even getting bad CHD ~~

    My best bet right now is surely to farm a RoRG and get triple set boni, should get me to T3/T4 (currently T2)
