    You have Unity equipped right? Last time I played a Wand of Woh spec I felt really squishy without Unity, even with semi perma frost nova, but that should be only a concern for people playing mostly in party. It looks fun but its still a little sad that every frebird spec does the quadruple damage of it :(

    No Unity. Using Moratorium to mitigate damage.

    As for people telling me to use X or Y or Z... no, just no. The point of this spec is to get as close as possible to the vanilla CMWW wizard build. No Black Holes. No Hydras. No Mirror Images. Only good ol' ETs and EBs and constant CD cycling. If you weren't around for vanilla, you're not going to get this.

    Why are you jumping to such conclusions? I never said you should use other things I just shared with you my experience from another CC build, in my post there is nothing like "you should" "try this" or "change this". It's just a comment showing that variation of this build is possible and playable when in group.

    And you jump to conclusion that people never played D3V. I feel offended. Check my post history and you should see how long I've been playing this game.

    Not nice. No cheers this time.

    Was trying to build something similar on my HC wizz. I get to 70% cdr without Gogok and only need a wand of woh. However, with my setup I'm able to spam the black hole that consumes the elite affixed and I'm pretty much safe 95% of the time.

    However, the variation of your build I was trying to achieve is one that allows great team play. all you need is helmet that allows your hydra to cast frost nova and wand that allows to spam 2 hydras. That and ~~60% cdr allows you to perma-freeze elites and guardians. And I mean perma. No time of non-cc. You just cast 2 hydras one after another (with some time between them so they wont frost nova simultaneously) and cast Frost Nova yourself. This allows perma CC. Guardians don't move from place :)



    cheers!

    I was saying about Hyperion, the guy proved in this topic, multiple times, that he is not experienced. Started with claiming that the Diablo 3 is 5 years (he most likely joined the game with RoS) old ending on the statement that there are fewer available builds than in the past patches.

    This guy is just trolling, saying he is experienced as he probably spend some time playing the franchise and can do higher grifts. Doing the 35+ grift content does not make you experienced right away. You have no idea about the game and you claim to be experienced.

    Furthermore, Diablo 3 is an ARPG where there is no end-game, this is not an MMO. In addition, in every ARPG (diablo franchise is perfect example) there is just the one build that surpasses everything else. It will always be like this. If you think otherwise you obviously haven't played ARPG or Diablo 2 (hammerdin+smite1 rings a bell?).

    When you make assumptions like this about people it does nothing for the discussion, what good does it to make accusations about Hyperion like this?

    He also clearly states that that he has played D3 since it originally came out, and he also states that he has played in ever patch as well. When you make assumptions like this and then reply as if what you said was true, it does nothing for the conversation.

    Please stop.

    He said he is playing from the beginning and yet he thinks that D3 is 5 years old.
    lol.
    time flows differently for him i guess.

    Quote from silvachยปAs for aRPG and that this is the best build to overcome grifts - yes it's ok. There will be always best build in aRPG and it will be used be majority of players. And hey, there are people using thunder / dashig strike build on 35+ :) so... not the only one ;)

    I firmly believe that with some buffs, at least 3-4 fully viable builds (like Sader's) could be achieved for all classes without exception. And there's no other build i.e. for DH, it's marauder or marauder.

    Wrong, only one build is available for saders for highest grifts. Condemn build is too squishy to do as good as stampede build.
    There will be always ONE build that will be the best. Period.

    Wow, I really sound like a broken record with "Learn to read"... am I becoming an elitist? :P

    Hunting for gear is perfect in general. Hunting for one MANDATORY piece of elusive jewlery just to progress because it happens to give you +100% overall toughness (hi unity) is not and is bad game design.

    Unity is not mandatory for all builds. Stampede crus can do without it thanks to prophet rune. DH can do without it, mages can do without it. It's mandatory for your build, but this is how it was suppose to be, some items are mandatory for some builds, others are not. And those items that are mandatory for ALL builds are easly available now (RoRG drop rate :P).

    So if i say that I need a SWK to progress through 30+ grifts that makes the set MANDATORY and BAD GAME DESIGN?

    Of course.

    You're streamlined into 1 working build.

    Don't tell me having 500 copy-paste characters on leaderboards is actually a sign of healthy game balance LOL.

    It seems that your only reply is "sacrifice more goats till you get one BS piece of gear that will prevent one of the three affixes that are instant pop" this time? In other words "get the perfect & mandatory gear for the only working skill build", just modified into a single gear piece this time.

    Still doesn't work in my book. There is no way to protect yourself from BOTH firechains and electrified, for instance, and hoping for ONE amulet that needs like 200000 blood shards on average (someone did the math already - google kadala shard cost ) is precisely a bad game design: creating arbitrary item you need to progress (unity falls into this category as well). There is no fluent survivability increase, it's like get THIS 1/10000 drop or GTFO. Again, if taht's good game design to you I have nothing to say.



    I don't care if people complain about gear walls. Gear is not the problem, it's the disproportion between affixes that's making things not enjoyable. You may like 1-shot deaths, avoiding mobs with stupid affixes or farming for statistically 333 hours for Xephirian amu (which I have, by the way - it's all up to RNG), I don't.

    ANd I prefer D3 to D2, actually, thanks.

    In 2nd paragraph you say that problem is gear that is needed to overcome the difficulty. In 3rd that the gear is not the problem...

    this is diablo, the better the gear the further you go. It was always like this. At some point you have to grind for 2 months to upgrade the gear and be able to do further difficulties. Why do you even thought it will be different?! You thought that with medicore gear you will be doing highest difficulties in arpg? You were wrong.

    So your argument is "play until you can streamline yourself into the only correct build and playstyle", this time?



    Well, better than L2P, but still way off. 20 more replies and you may even make a non-elitist post, son.

    As for your point: what does it have to do with being NOT FUN? Do you consider that fun? I don't.



    And on 16:10 screen I use "off screen" is perfectly possible, actually. The game is programmed to work with 16:9 and you're having the edges cut on 16:10. You can't see them but monsters will activate their skills there. So yes, there's exactly off-screen jailers, but as an elitist, you obviously ignore everything that doesn't suit your "23 top leaderboard" arguments.

    And totally LOL on the "you still fail" part. Dude, this is RNG. You can't "fail" at RNG, you have good luck or bad luck - there is literally nothing you can do about it. Boring elitist blabber.

    Eh.

    If you have problems with your screen ratio being too low grind for arcane immune amulet and laugh on jailers.
    You seems to have problems with overcoming the difficulties when you face them. You want them to be given to you on a silver plate. Grind your ass off on T6 (if you do it so easily) and gamble the amulets from kadala. Once you get the immune amulet your jailer problem will disappear.

    People always complain when they hit a wall. Was same with A2 Inferno wall on D3V, people complained while others farmed A3 without troubles. And some did killed the diablo.

    There is no 'elitiest' it's just hard to believe that people that are playing this game demands from it to be something else than Diablo 2 or anything in the genre. In diablo 2 you had to grindfest like hell to achieve something. Well.. unless you bought Ists from the ebay ;)

    I'm telling that people can do it, so don't blame blizz or anything for your lack of skills. I'm not the only one. If only you would spend some time thinking about gearing and grinding, this would be a way easier game for ya.

    Here we go, elitist mode again. Skills? rotfl. This is a gear check game. You may have a better reflex or not, but that's as far as "skills" go in gear check games.

    "If only you would spend some time thinking about gearing" - WTF are you smoking son, everybody uses the same gear, same build, EVEN SAME AFFIXES. Check first 500 softcore characters - they are all copy-paste. Thinking about gearing? LOL. You can think what goat to sacrfice to RNGesus to get perfect Unity ring perhaps, but the game is streamlined into 1 build that works, except Sader maybe which has like 2-3.

    Why are you like EVERY other elitist out there? i can predict your answers without reading them. When lacking arguments (about the unavoidable off-screen jailer on Grifts 40+) you revert to "l2p kid" mode. Typical.

    Well, maybe there is not skill involved and the game is gearcheck, but you still fail to obtain gear and play good with your current gear. What that makes you? An good player with lack of luck? :o

    And there is nothing like off-screen jailers. they have range my son (ask DH's who mastered the range on jailers so they can avoid them). And also there are ways to avoid the damage by using immune amulets.. also there are ways to prevent most damage by just stacking the gear with proper +ressistance on 2ndary magic attributes.

    Eh.
