    posted a message on Need help rerolling Hellfire Amulet



    So this came out of my craft and I think it should be good enough to be used instead of Sunwuko Shines. I'm still new to the monk class so I'm not sure which affix should go for socket, cdr or dexterity? For Lightning WoL build of course.

    Quote from Kapsu

    For the longest time I played this build, but right now I just can't get myself to it seeing how weak it is on high levels compared to stuff like Holy Shotgun or the Phalanx ("whee let's bounce") builds. I wish they buffed hammers. :(
    I think you're underestimating the build too much. Shotgun/Condemn/Horsies might all be rank 1 builds, but Hammers are still fine up to near 30 Grift. Wreath of Lightning seems to be really helping since it procs Firestarter like 2 times per second. Condemn doesn't work without weapon and shield. Shotgun doesn't work without weapon. Horsies doesn't work without shield. Meanwhile, Hammers work with pretty much any weapon. My sader just made through rank 29 and can melt T6 without much issues, while I'm on 3k shards spend and still can't get Phalanx shield, not even trying to gamble 2h with their triple cost and even lower chance...

    The biggest problem for hammers seems to be that their sorta-melee rather than ranged spec, yet they can't use Prophet rune. I'm experimenting with options and it seems like Eternal Union Bowmen are really helpful for tanking elites between glares.

    I would personally just reset till there is bounty for one + check outdoor entrance area to east for one of spawns each time. Running through doesn't seem to be worth it.

    But yes, I had Dataminer spawn in crypt with Jar of Souls, dunno about Manglemaw one.

    Sorry, what I wrote was reply to OP. For you, if you feel like you die too much, switch armor to more defensive one (Force of Ice onces), Glass Cannon to Blur (most likely biggest toughness gain), Magic Weapon to Deflection etc. At some point you will have to sacrifice dps for survival unless you are REALLY good at dodging/have a tank. Also Cold Blooded > Elemental Exposure imo, even with 3 elements you have, you will have 15% boost only on single target bosses, and usually only 5% on anything else due to familiar being single target and armor procs being random and rather slow.

    Offhands can be gambled for 5 shards each, I would say they are the most worthwhile thing to get first, or on par with trying to get Frostburns. You should add SoJ to 'want' list. I have no experience with Tal Rasha, but wouldn't it require more varied damage sources? Especially that it would take slots that boost %frost, if you don't have multiple elements, mixing different sets and RoG seems better? Or changing build I guess with more passive source.

    Also, didn't they nerf Prodigy proccing twice on Electrocute?

    im intrested to know if mirroball+wand of woe can work together or i better off sticking to spectral blade



    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/wizard#acOSjh!YibS!aZZZaa is the build i had in mind
    http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Nivrax-2801/hero/36267564

    I've got both Wand and a not-bad Mirrorball. Before I got the Source I've been using Spectral Blades, but 3x Magic Missile does similar job on trash, if you get used to having click past mobs first to get them in EB range. And on bosses... you can stack 20-30mln critting dot on rift bosses in 20 seconds, then they die. Can faceroll T3, elites die to one-two EBlasts (one if I get container to click beforehand), t4 elites are melting too, but the damage intake is getting spiky, not sure yet how to fix that yet (help appreciated!)

    Arcane version of it 'might' work, but not in what is proposed here, WoH by itself solo t1, but build won't survive going into higher. You move ALL THE TIME with explosion so UW is worthless, Glass Cannon tanks resist too much, Magic Missile and Arcane Orbit don't go well together (you want to be hugging monsters even more than with just Explosive Blast) and overall MM is not as crazy as it is with Conflagrate, probably one of two orbs that boost teleport + stun on rune would work better. Also I would assume you need Moonlight Ward for arcane EB to pull ahead of fire one.

    posted a message on Is gearing follower for dps purposes worthwhile?
    Recently I (well, my Templar) recieved Relic that makes him invulnerable. That means vitality is not needed at all to not have him sleeping on job all the time. I'm wondering, would gearing him full in dps gear would be actually worthwhile? I understand that even a mln+ dps follower is 'just' an autoattack bot, in case of healing templar at least, but that still a bit extra dps, I'm just not sure if it can go as high? Would there be any weapons that would work well with them, or are things not proccing on them (Haunt of Vexo didn't work, no triple templar action :( )? Since I'm maining Wiz, gearing him up this way would require quite few sessions of playing str char, so I'd like to be sure if that's worth it at all.

    Finally got Glowing Ore off Magrethar - unique scavenger in Realm of the Banished (Realmwaker unique special zone). There is bounty for him, wouldn't try farming him otherwise.

    Quote from ShadowFoxGXA

    To effectively do Torment I I would shoot for at least 450k health, 500k damage and 8 mil toughness with some healing to back it up.
    At 8mln Tough you can attempt to do Torment III assuming you have dps to back it up. 3mln is enough for t1 assuming you move from crap/use Templar.

    posted a message on Lighting build - Need help
    The build is bassicly Wave of Force on Lightning. It isn't really that different from fire version, except you don't have armor to boost your toughness and rely on rng stuns instead. It is a good build, it's hard to survive with it though, and imo fire does it slightly better.

    I personally found Lightning underperforming EXCEPT when I'm in group. Paralysis have incredible support power. While leveling through Act V with a friend I ranhttp://eu.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/wizard#UPiNST!ZYcV!ZaZaac, with 80% Time Warp instead Hydra sometimes instead (and Haunt of Vaxo, such sweet amu for stun builds). Clumping with Black Hole, massive slow, root from Meteor and chain stun. Urzael fight was cake, all he could do is jump between places and rarely shoot the ceiling. I didn't know he had flamethrower or targetted blast until I refight him myself in diffrent build simply because as Lightning wiz I was constantly interrupting his windups.

    Also ran a little Arcane Lightning Orb a bit solo. It's not bad by any means. It's that Frozen Orb is soooo much better.

    posted a message on Wand of Woh reforging, need opinions.
    Quite a bit conflicting opinions. Decided to keep IAS, since it's my best weapon atm for more than one build and I like fast stacking Flame Blades/Wave of Force casts. It is absolute monster indeed, melts everything <3. I can now farm t3 rifts <10min which is bit faster than previous t2 with Frozen Orbs, and I'm still rocking few unoptimal pieces.

    Small correction (error on my side). Glowing Ore - Soul Scavenger: Event is actually called 'Demon Souls'.

    posted a message on Wand of Woh reforging, need opinions.
    I've gotten not-so-terrible rolled Woh recently and I'm wondering which should I replace for socket? Should I keep cdr for pure Explosive Blast build, or should I go with ias instead for more generic weapon? Is EB build even viable for higher (t3-t4+) torments to build entire set around it? Are there any other cdr requiring builds that this Wand would work in? I'd imagine Archon focused would work, but I already have Orpheus with int/2,15k/20%/socket that would prolly be better for them.
