i pretty much went for any skill that was lightning based and that appeared to fit The Emperor as we all knew him as well as applying that to rune choice. (there were definitely barely enough pure lightning attacks to fully fluff out the build)
so i'm hoping this build will just be pure fun, with no intent for serious survivability or dps'ing boss types.
i saw the wizard class, and when i started looking at skills, the first thought that came to mind was:
"i could pretend i was the emperor from star wars and just lightning everything to death with my hands!!! that would be awesome!!!"
i would really enjoy playing with a beta key, and i would have to experiment a lot for sure. a whole new system branching off a story line i've played over and over and over. i've recently played diablo i and ii, and am totally excited for iii. of course i'll buy it....
