    I never imagined this would spark an argument like this, wasn't really my intention. Please keep in mind that this video is entirely my opinion and from my own experience, and also that I am talking about the abilities with inferno in mind solely. If you find, lets just say sleet storm, viable, then cool, good for you! No need to get all mad and protective about it ;)

    when I called you ''mister'' it wasn,t to insult you, I just wanted to make the other realize how stupid is affirmation of ''arguing with the world first diablo inferno kill is stupid'' that some might have other opinions than you wich are perfectly viable as this game is all about exploring multiple builds

    sorry if you felt I was insulting you ;)

    I was referring to people arguing over my thread, there's really no need - you didn't insult me, no one did really :)
    I would, however, like to thank all of the people who took the time to watch the video!

    Or rather, mess around with recording settings so it also doesn't record stuff like you swallowing and what not.

    Haha, I'll take that with me to the next video, I'm very new to this, so I have to learn as I'm doing - so thanks for the advice!

    After getting a somewhat decent set of gear, you can pretty use whatever you like in act 1 inferno. The melee oriented spells are tricky, as they require more vit/all resist/armor items. Also getting lots of life on hit items is a good idea (in general).

    The Death Blossom rune concept is very nice, but imo it just does not work out properly. Maybe if they would increase the aoe range to 10 yards or something and then maybe lower the dmg to 500% or so it could work. I've tried it in act 1 inferno and 90% of the time you see the missiles hit nothing.

    As some of you have said before, Mammoth Hydra is useless. The dmg is just too low to be of any good, also the hydra should cast those waves more often and let em stack 3x. A lot of wizards use the mirror images to block mobs and then have venom hydra dps em down. It would be nice if all hydra types, including Mammoth is viable for this purpose. Adding things like knockback or a short stun looks ok as well and not out of place. I mean, a massive hydra blows fire on you. Redo the graphic animation and make it more of a flamewave thingy in D1.

    The twisters are pretty funny, although they should add some slow or disorient or whatever effect. We are kiting a lot and therefor moving mobs away from the area of destruction very quickly. This greatly reduces the dmg of the twisters. In small area's where twisters can't really go all over the place they also work pretty well. The last rune of twister is a nice one, because casting the signature with a 225% dmg tornado hurts a lot. The main concern is that other spells are more viable.

    In conclusion, wizard (and I think all classes) need a bit of a balance and rework so more spells/skills will be viable for use in Inferno.

    True, I think we need a big balance patch, so that all classes come closer to the glorified HUGE build diversity. At the very least, all spells should be viable somehow, even if it requires gear to do it.

    also comparing energy twister a spell in the ''force'' category, to a secondary spell is pointless, it's like saying that Shock pulse w/ Piercing orb is useless because Arcane Orb is just better...

    A spell in the force category should provide some kind of utility, but energy twister doesnt do anything except damage in exchange for AP so it is comparable to any other spell that does the same.

    Comparing shock pulse to piercing orb has no analogy here because one spends AP and the other doesn't.

    because Meteor does something else than damage? I still think it's odd to compare to spells that aren't even in the same category, I do think Energy Twister sucks, but comparing it to AO is fail IMO, compare it to Meteor, both are damage only spells in the force category, but not to a secondary spell...

    Quote from Adkhean

    Arcane torrent w/ Death blossom CAN be useful agains't a huge pack of mobs, or huge ennemies liek Belial/azmodan

    Ray of frost w/ Sleet storm is incredibly useful give you have the right build/gear

    now Mammoth Hydra, I don't know if it can be useful especially on how godly Venom hydra is, but maybe someone could find it useful

    Diamond Skin Mirror skin is completly crappy everyone says that, still bugs me how it's supposedly the ''most used rune'' for LVL 60 WIZARD! yeah 5k on a 15sec CD is really crappy

    and energy twister, i've seen someone use it with the rune that stops the twisters from moving don't know if it was useful/powerful just thought it was cool to see someone use it ,was on hell as well...

    also comparing energy twister a spell in the ''force'' category, to a secondary spell is pointless, it's like saying that Shock pulse w/ Piercing orb is useless because Arcane Orb is just better...

    When you min/max, Death blossom clearly fails to perform. Maybe if you are extremely lucky, it could work somewhat vs belial etc., but against huge packs, Arcane orb would be a better choice by far, as it has greater AOE, and you can hit them everytime :)

    About sleet storm, I also said in the video that it might be useful, so I agree that it could be used - but still, a melee spell isn't the most common choice as a wizard, it requires VERY tanky gear. Keep it mind that I am talking about these abilities with inferno in mind.

    Mammoth hydra, as I said, has no use. The only way I could see it be used, is if the patch of fires it spawns, stacked. But as far as I can tell, they don't, and therefore, no rune hydra is better. Keep in mind mammoth hydra has 22 % dmg and normal hydra has 28 %, and it shoots 3 times. Mammoth hydra would do more dmg against huuuuuge packs, but we already have arcane hydra or poison hydra for that.

    As for the comparing of energy twister, I'm gonna have to agree with what Arcturesmengsk said :)

    But thanks for taking the time to comment! And in fact, I would really like to see a video of someone using sleet storm for farming, as the spell itself looks pretty cool.

    I did used Death blossom on Belial, was really useful killed him in no time since he's so big, most of the times the arcane missile hits him, got no video of it since it was long ago and didn't thought I'd had that argument but still ;) though it was on normal IIRC, inferno may be different if only because I tend to dislike when something is bound with luck, but some may like to take the risk becaus 675% damage is by no mean nothing so using it agains,t a huge ennemy so you have more chance to hit helps.

    I did saw someone with sleet storm in inferno when i was farming butcher, thought it looked cool, but he had an incredible gear to make up for it, it's not useful for most wizard dut to the fact we're basically getting one shot, but i'm assumign with the Critical mass/diamond skin build, and alot of critical chance/diamond skin/force armor/High vit, there's potential...

    yeah mammoth hydra is kinda sad, especially when it's the last rune to be unlocked...

    Hehe, exactly, I don't like to rely on me being lucky in inferno:
    And yea, that setup with sleet storm could work, I think you're right - especially when you can get extra crit on ray of frost from items as far as I recall, it could be really something - along with a lot of life on hit etc.

    Just thought I wanted to share this video with you all, it's about the five spells/runes that I dislike the most as a wizard. If you want, you could tell me what yours are :) Furthermore, I would like to know if anyone uses these spells, and if they do, I would like to know in which build and so on, so I can try it.

    Here's the video:

    Thanks for watching! Please tell me what you think :)


    For the busy people:

    0:30 = Arcane Torrent w/ Death Blossom
    1:34 = Ray of Frost w/ Sleet Storm
    2:30 = Hydra w/ Mammoth Hydra
    3:50 = Diamond Skin w/ Mirror Skin
    5:26 = Energy Twister w/ ANY rune

    Whelp! Thanks to Tyrael for being such a nice dps :) Anyways, to anyone struggling with this guy, here's a way that works! Please go check out my video, and if you haven't already, you can go watch the way I farm unicorn lvl, for tips (As a Wizard) here: http://www.diablofan...s-wizardranged/
    Also, I'm pretty sure this can be done as any class, if there is a demand, I will give it a try as Monk since I have a lvl 60 Monk now.

    A thing to note, there is no commentary in this video, as I have just started making videos and I need to try out the different things in gaming videos (My unicorn-lvl video has commentary). There is music however!


    Here you go:

    Quote from Sygodoeden

    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),

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


    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

    Quote from Sygodoeden

    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?

    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

    Thanks Sygo, indeed blizzard and arcane hydra work great together x)

    You're welcome, and they sure do!


    Quote from Mow

    Thanks Sygo, indeed blizzard and arcane hydra work great together x)

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

    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.

    So another question. It seems like Diablo has a dot which is randomly applied when he hits you. Is this just another luck deal?

    Quite random yes - but I've been told that mirror image removes it :D

    Hello, also a big congratulations from my side.
    I am in Act2 Inferno and start to struggle. Not with the bosses, but with random mobs :o

    Questions to your diablo killer build:
    1. Did you ever try to use Frost Hydra, because with Cold Blood and Blizzard it would do a lot of dmg.
    2. Do you use the slow time bubble only for the extra dmg on yourself. Or do you cast it to slow Diablo dawn?
    Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure that the poison hydra does more dmg, despite that passive - haven't tested it though :)

    I use it to slow down his fireball so I can dodge it, and to slow down my clone when it uses scary abilities :P

    Quote from Sfx

    Hey Sygo, gz to the kill!

    I'm struggling with Diablo solo myself atm,
    but i got some problems:

    He spams his fireball with the deadly dot so often,
    i don't get my defensive cooldowns (skin, slowtime, forcewave, tried all) ready fast enough.

    Ofc you can say - dodge it!
    I try, but there is the next problem:
    1 out of 3 times the projectile teleports to my character on impact, even if i teleport away half the screen,
    suddenly the dot-circle is below my sorc.

    Got the same problem? Any ideas how to avoid it?

    My current skill:
    http://eu.battle.net...SXOQ!YTd!cZZaYY
    (I use teleport-fracture, so i can remove the Dot with the mirror images if i get it after a melee hit)

    Thank you!

    I had the same problem when I tried teleport, so I stopped using it all together :) Slow time felt much more viable, but having teleport to remove the dot is invaluable, and really smart, but I just learned about that recently, so I might have to build an even better build now :P

    On the new build.. why Timewarp with the Attack Speed bonus.. does it affect the tick speed of the blizzard or hydra if you cast it when your still inside them?

    Omg... I just realized now - I thought that was movement speed, not attack speed lol. Then I would recommend less CD rune :P

    Question. How did you deal with Diablo's long-ranged AoE?

    Maybe it was just the lag tonight, but he would either miss me out-right or hit me almost instantly.

    Hehe, that aoe can be quite random - sometimes it just kinda teleports onto you and that's just tough luck :/
    But diamond skin can do wonders, and it doesn't have that big a cd.

    Hey bud.

    Firstly, congratulations! I've you haven't seen yet, your post has made it to reddit here: http://www.reddit.co...mm/this_is_sad/ (don't let the title of the link confuse you, it's congratulations all round!)

    Secondly, what are your thoughts on Archon? It does such insane damage, but unfortunately I am finding it very situational as I'm moving into Act II Inferno as I don't get many chances to sit still and take advantage of the improved 'disintegrate'.

    This is my build at the moment:

    http://eu.battle.net...mXSO!YXb!abcaZY

    It absolutely destroys all act I, I can usually play through the entire thing with only a couple of deaths. All skills are utilised all the time, except for archon for the above reasons.

    I was thinking of changing Archon to either Wave of Force (Impactful Wave), Slow Time (Time Warp), or Blizzard (Stark Winter). All have their uses for kiting, but I'm leaning toward blizzard for the pure dmg + slow.

    What do you think?

    Archon is cool and awesome and all that, but I don't like not being able to use my other skills :( So changing it for blizzard is def. a great idea in my opinion!

    And thanks for showing me the reddit post, I hadn't seen that one! Very positive indeed, and not the same amount of hate comments as I get here and on b.net :)

    Quote from ab0ve

    Sygo congrats!!

    With your experience do you think the 4 man HC Hell Diablo kill is more impressive/more difficult?

    And do you think anyone will ever kill Diablo in Inferno on HC?

    I saw the video, it seemed like they knew their stuff (and their stats were amazing, a lot better than most barbs/monks I have seen on inferno :P), really good job by them! I'm actually quite impressed that they play melee on hardcore, big thumbs up for that! As for comparing, you can't really. Hardcore will always be more hardcore ;)
    And yes, of course someone will, eventually - prolly through a really smart mechanic, but it will happen :)

    A person on official forums noticed one important thing that lets you deal with the debuff.

    Mirror images REMOVE all debuffs present on character. So, going with teleport+mirror images+illusionist is a very good idea (teleport is the best way of getting out of the meteor fire pool thingie)

    WHAT!
    I will have to try that out - Thanks!

    Life on hit works only on certain spells. When i use normal ROF I get life per hit since I see the green numbers. But bliz, hydra etc don't. Maybe it only works for single target spells. I'm not sure about life steal.

    For your normal build you use arcane torrent instead of blizzard? Is it viable to use hydra and bliz for inferno farming?

    Pretty sure it is - it is better for kiting at least :)

    How were you dealing with the debuff that makes a few small ticks and almost instantly kills you? There's really 0 time to see it and press DS even with 0ms ping

    That's the part where I die :P but after 100ish tries, there's bound to be that one try where everything falls into place. I didn't get hit by the debuff once in the fight where I killed him (quite lucky) but the trick is to get hit as few times as possible, or just pray that you get the one that increases your dmg :)

    Remember to convert it to mp4, dunno what program you have for this, i use Sony Vega, a video like this, 2 min? should be like 150 MB to upload or so.

    And yee, I dont have problems with jailor, wallers, motar etc .. those i hate are lol_runspeed and full minion invulnerability, those two combined suck ass :) hydra hit wrong target etc. Oh i gotta try out that turret a bit more...

    Quote from strikerboy414

    Hi Sygo. Congratulations! After reading your post I changed my whole outlook entirely (and stole your build) which allowed me to get through Hell and Inferno A1, so thank you. With that said, I have a question...

    In your recent posts you have sworn by +% attack speed, but does attack speed effect the speed in which Hydra shoots or Blizzard ticks? I would think attack speed just increases the rate at which you can chain-cast spells, in which case, wouldn't it be kind of useless for a Hydra/Blizzard build (since Blizzard can't stack)? Or is it just to boost your regular shock pulse/arcane torrent build... ?

    Edit: Second question -- At what point during inferno did you receive that very high (1000+) DPS 2-hander you mentioned? Did you get it to drop, or did you buy it off the AH? I currently have a 760 DPS 2-hander, would you recommend I buy/find a much better one before I start A2 Inferno?

    Edit: Third question -- I see on your stats screen you have 2.20% Life Steal. Is this coming from your weapon, or your belt? (AH says belts can have this stat, but it doesn't find any). Would you say a small amount of Life Steal like this is absolutely necessary? (Perhaps to offset Damage Reflect elites?)

    Thanks!

    About the attack speed.. I actually don't know for sure :/ All I know is that it increases my dmg (in stats) by vast amounts, and therefore I assume that it makes spells tick faster - if not, they need to make it like that ;)

    The weapon dropped from me in act 3, and it was a huge upgrade from my 650 dps one handed :) I'd say, if you can't beat act 2 yet, go find or buy a new weapon - it really helps a bunch!

    Damage reflect. Is a bitch ><. The lifesteal doesn't outheal the dmg, although the way I deal with them is by damaging them while I have diamond skin up. But yes, I'd say life per kill, life steal, life regen, and life each hit, is necessary to farm - I've rolled with galvanizing ward or whatever the passive is called to get that extra regen. Oh, and the life steal is on my weapon, along with the life per kill :)

    Quote from Hexipox

    Tillykke! godt gået!

    Aight had to congratulate in Danish. Yeah I’m Danish too, anyways I have a question or two for your build.

    I use more or less same build as you, everything you chose in your builds seems obvious to me, aside from one thing… Why have you not focused on regain of life? since the mechanism for converting life does not work for spells, nor does life added on hit (which is a huge fail, considering that they even put in rune that does this for a wizard, blood magic, magic weapon – different topic though). I was wondering, don’t you take any damage? I usually use the kite method, while regaining life. What do you do? how do you survive a pack of elite/rare mobs?

    Did you pick slow time only to buff your attack speed?


    NOTE to all wizs: If you didnt figure out venom hydra your self by now, get it, its absolutly amazing, i tried it out just as i got the rune, have been using it since that in any build.

    Tak :)

    Slow time was only used vs. diablo, and I used the rune that increased my movement speed, so that I could outrun the fireball since that was pretty much an insta-kill :)
    The lifesteal does work on arcane torrent, just not that much - against diablo with blizzard, I don't get hit all that much anymore, especially with the slow (I can run away from his autohits sometimes)
    I just kite a lot, around objects - I've gotten to the point where even if they have jailer and mortar, I can avoid taking dmg :) (jailer doesn't come up more than diamond skin is ready, and you can pretty much dodge any mortar by running around weirdly)

    So, "life on hit" and "x% dmg converted to life" won't work for us wizards? oh oh... I personally use Blizzard instead of hydra, für champions/rares/mobs, or how do u kite them around??? they are normally way too fast...

    What stats on a weapon are important#?

    Instead of glass cannon I take galvanizing to have much life regen and 4 min armour duration...

    and 1h+source or 2h (if I have a 500dps 1h and 30-180 source offhand, how much dmg must the 2h weapon have to have a higher overall dmg???)

    And what follower do you normally take for soloing champion packs? and with what skills and what attributes?

    Big THX ^^

    I look for pure dmg and any of the life somethings (And I don't say no to some intelligence).
    If you want to kite them around more, and you're using blizzard, you should use hydra too (since it can dmg while you're running away, just like blizzard)
    Your galvanizing ward choice is excellent and I am trying it out myself, that regen is just really good. Combined with some gear I have that I use sometimes it just regens so fast :D
    I actually don't know how much more that dmg gives, they should have written dps on offhands too.
    I use enchantress with all the defensive abilities she has.
    I just realised this question wasn't for me, but I'm posting anyway LOL.

    Quote from Artaxares

    How does life on hit work with wizards? I mean for spells like arcane torrent which has lots of small hits, does it work on every hit or is it like based on weapon speed or what?

    and btw.can someone tell how important is "life after kill" compared to life steal and normal regeneration in inferno act 2 and 3? I could pick some nice weapon with good life steal but it doesn't have life after kill so I'm kinda interested is it that important?
    Because I guess you can kill couple of normal mobs while you're still at 100% so it doesn't really add much, and on champions it doesn't add anything at all because there's only 3 of them.
    Is it that important or can I just take a weapon with 2.5%+ life steal and some good regen on gear?

    Life steal and good regen should save you a lot of times :P
    Quote from Namitsoo

    First off congratz for your kill. :) I skipped through some of the pages and saw that you wanted to upload a picture of your weapon that you used?Is that possible? (and maybe the rest of your EQ?)

    Actually I tried to upload a video yesterday where I show my achievement (to all the haters) and my gear - but it took 6 hours to get to 30 % uploaded, so I decided that I will try again today on a different internet connection.

    I used the build that I came up with earlier today, with blizzard + hydra as constant dps - it's on first post :)

    Hats off to you, I like the build mechanics.

    but it's driving me batty having to change my skill load out for boss fights and losing the neph buff, did you notice much of a change in drops when you did that yourself, and the question I'm sure everyone is dying to ask, what did Inferno diablo drop bro, don't hold out on us :)

    There is a CLEAR difference between having the buff vs a boss and not having it - skeleton king dropped 4 yellow and 9 blue for me on inferno with 5 buffs, while (cool segway) diablo dropped like 5 blue that sucked lol (I had no neph buffs)
    But crap loot, big time :P

    I still think this is fake way too low overall kills and achievs also why he is posting here he is member here since what yesterday ... i can smell the troll...

    Probably exploited the hell out of chests to get it done. Instead of farming champions to get the gear he has.

    I tried the chest 4 times, didn't get any good loot, so I started farming act 3 instead :) And the reason for the low kills is that I only solo'd from act 2-4 inferno.

    Congrats Sygo. I consider your accomplishment far more impressive than the Method team completion. You will go down in Diablo lore for this.

    ...and for those whom keep spouting off about HC mode.....please stop it. We all know HC is extremely hard. That shouldn't take away from, not even one tiny bit, Sygo's amazing finish.

    Totally agree with this. Sygo did you have people farming gear for you? Just curious.

    Nope, I played with a few friends, but non of them kind enough to just farm gear for me XD

    Quote from cyan421

    congrats man. I approve of the white dye.

    So you used 4 defensive abilities for you Diablo kill and use 4 damage abilities for your regular solo build? Is that right? Did you post the build used in the kill yet? or did I miss it?

    I use 3 damage abilities (and magic weapon, dunno if that one counts as dmg ability) for my solo farm build (you can find it on first post), and vs diablo I used 2 damage abilities (and magic weapon) - I will edit the build into first post in a second for you all :)

    Quote from Kaito

    Not sure if OP is still watching here, but how did you manage to avoid his meteor DoT, just circling the middle rocks in figure 8 or luck?

    I've tried 20% run speed, teleport, and frost novaing to stop it, skin to absorb, and regen to out-regen it, the the Meteor DoT is just impossible to escape sometimes unless I use the wall, and even then he sometimes teleports and melee DoTs or teleport meteors. The amount of damage it does even when I seem to escape it owns me from the DoT.

    Other than those DoTs, soloing is easy, can literally melee him to 60%, though he has an annoying melee DoT as well.

    I'm assuming you are talking about the big fireball that creates the huge circle of DoTness - I dodged all of them, the ones when he was far away, I could just move out of the way, but when he got close and made it, I used slow time with the increased movement speed for me and just ran in the opposite direction.
    The random dot on his hit is.. well random, and so after a 100ish try I was lucky enough to have a try without it proccing (since he can proc other stuff on his hit, like a 'debuff' which increases dmg done to you, and increases the dmg you do to him). And that's the try I beat him - so luck is needed with my build to get past his dot :)

    Quote from DiabloSin

    How did you beat inferno act 3 boss grom or whatever his name is on your wizard? If the poison cloud touches you, or he vomits on you, you die. The poison clouds end up blocking you in and either he vomits on you or you run into the cloud and die.

    Hehe, I had a lot of trouble with this guy, but eventually I figured out how to kite him so that there would be JUST enough space to run past those clouds - the trick is to somehow keep him centered so he makes his clouds roughly in the same spots (basically making the whole middle = deathtown). Took me more than 10 tries to down him, he's not easy! You could always get a demonhunter with some dmg with you, since he can stealth ress you in the clouds without dying ;)

    Quote from Artaxares

    Quote from Onivh

    What would the individual stats on each piece of gear look like to be able to attain 43k damage... and have zero vitality.... and very low armor?

    Thing is, it's not that he just doesnt have vitality. he MUST NOT have vitality. He has 6500hp and takes only 35% dmg per shot which is 2200 dmg. WIth high HP regen he just fills that up and then can take more shots for 2200dmg each and constantly be on 100% hp. If he were to have 40000 HP, he would take 14k shots and couldn't regenerate fast enough and could take less shots from mobs. Kinda funny situation that less hp is better. So it's just intelligence + tons of HP regen.
    So items probably look like intelligence, life per kill, life per second, strength, dexterity, or something like that lol

    anyway, what I'm interested in, can you post screenshot of your weapon, or can someone explain what stats should we look for on weapons because obviously it's the weapon here that gives him so much dmg because his intelligence stat is not that high.
    Should we look just for the big number damage weapon or is there something else we should look at? What about attack speed, +damage % etc, how does that affect overall dps?
    I'd really like to know that before I spend 2M on some weapon and figure out my dps is still shit :D

    I can post my weapon on first post too in a sec (if servers get up ><). But basically, my intelligence isn't high, because there is a stat I look for more than that - Attack speed. It increases your dmg by insane amounts, so both my rings and my amulet have 14-15 % attack speed + intelligence on em, and they prolly boost my dmg with like 15k dmg or something :) And you are entirely right about the life per kill, life per second, life on hit etc. Since that is what I need other than dmg :P

    Pheeew, was sleeping a good long sleep, so didnt see all the new replys ^^ And thank you too all those congratulating!
    When servers get up I will post my diablo build and weapon on first post for those interested (although I am currently trying to get a new weapon)

    Most people will never make it that far, period. Myself, I'll be lucky to eventually get to Hell Diablo solo on a barbarian, but I think I can do it.

    Haters are going to hate. "OMG ITS NOT HARDCORE IT DOESNT COUNT" or "LOL GAME TOO EASY"... let em hate. Until they can claim an Inferno Diablo kill, they're just talking out their asses.

    Haha true :P
    Soloing hell with a barb is quite something too, I think I'm gonna make a melee and see how far I can go.

    Big grats, i just hope now that blizzard sees it they'll nerf that energy armor rune which almost gives you immortality.

    Except all dots insta-kill you on inferno with my build ;)
    remind me, which act boss has dots? i honestly cant remember any except fire floor at butcher but that should be more than easy to avoid with teleport

    edit: im not saying that mechanic is completely broken and that clearing all that stuff was easy mode but i sincerely doubt you could have killed him without it

    and whether is too good or not, big props because any wizard could have used the skills you used and still you came on top

    You are entirely right, I couldn't have beaten him without it, but that's kinda the point when your build revolves around 1 skill :D
    Butcher has his burn = insta kill, azmodan has his thing on the ground = insta-kill and diablo has his fireball, my clone and sometimes on his autohit :)

    Did he drop any Legendaries? Did you find ANY Legendary from ANY boss?

    I don't really know WD that well, since I've only ever played wizard (and my next char is a monk).
    But if you get stuck after act 1 inferno, just farm act 1 - good drops and a LOT easier than act 2 :)

    And no I haven't seen a single legendary from a boss :

    Can you plz elaborate a little about the stats, is it really just important to have so strong weapon, average amount of intellect and then what, just life steal, life per kill or what stat exactly?
    Ok so boss fights -> dont take damage at all, normal mobs -> life per kill gives you unlimited health -> champion mobs? how does that work?
    The idea is, strong dps, no added vitality, lots of life regen and life per hit and avoid taking more than 2 hits per second EVER

    Pretty much what he said, if you have that you are good to go :)

    Was that legit as in dealing with the elites, mobs etc, or mostly running dead through stuff to get to bosses?

    I had a few friends with me in normal, nm and hell, and act 1 inferno. But I didn't have ppl giving me loot and stuff (dunno if they had that).
    I dealt with most elites, though a few of them I had to just skip (invulnerable minions with plague and vortex = gg)

    There is no fairness or fun in exploiting the game ( u gonna skip 90% of elite packs, u are gonna use some insane op skill ,u are gonna stack up classes with op skills, u are gonna die on prupose to skip game mechanics)those should not be approved to be world 1st.(I even think some of those deserve a ban so they can learn to compete fair)

    I only skipped the hardest of the hardest champion packs - how do you think I got my gear? Real money ah, oh wait.
    What you are saying is that ppl should beat diablo with the worst skills, and not take advantage of any of the good skills you have.
    Exactly what would be the point of that? That's like playing counter strike and saying you can't use Deagle because it's "too good"

    There is difference between good skills and totally op skills that makes u beat content u are not suposed to , as i said early its not ur fault blizz let some totally op skill like that its just u are hiding and not showing ur kill and even saying its clever use of game mechanic cuz u know thats is far from fairplay to claim world 1st mate.

    So, it does seem a bit cheesy, but I find it very hard to believe that the devs didn't realize that force armor + hydra means you can attack while also defending. I thought of this (as well as many others) as soon as I saw the two skills. Seems pretty obvious.

    So grats to whomever has beaten inferno Diablo at this point, but all it really means is that you dedicated a lot of time to the game in the last 4 days. Beating Diablo is fine and all, but that's not the hard part of this game. The hard part is reaching the point where you can farm inferno, which no one has come close to yet.

    Actually, I can farm all acts in inferno except act 4 :D

    I have a question mate will u be able to farm act 3 without that rune skill u are using on the shield skill ?

    Nope, not effectively! :)

    Thanks for answer and after i saw method's stream and as blizzard said its pretty possible that some hardcore gamers can beat up diablo on inferno way faster then expected and prolly using a clever game mechanic, i just dont like this style anyway its up to u to settle ur world 1st thingie and i hope u enjoy the game :)

    Shouldn't be too hard - I posted before they beat him on stream :D

    I only skipped the hardest of the hardest champion packs - how do you think I got my gear? Real money ah, oh wait.
    What you are saying is that ppl should beat diablo with the worst skills, and not take advantage of any of the good skills you have.
    Exactly what would be the point of that? That's like playing counter strike and saying you can't use Deagle because it's "too good"

    There is difference between good skills and totally op skills that makes u beat content u are not suposed to , as i said early its not ur fault blizz let some totally op skill like that its just u are hiding and not showing ur kill and even saying its clever use of game mechanic cuz u know thats is far from fairplay to claim world 1st mate.

    So, it does seem a bit cheesy, but I find it very hard to believe that the devs didn't realize that force armor + hydra means you can attack while also defending. I thought of this (as well as many others) as soon as I saw the two skills. Seems pretty obvious.

    So grats to whomever has beaten inferno Diablo at this point, but all it really means is that you dedicated a lot of time to the game in the last 4 days. Beating Diablo is fine and all, but that's not the hard part of this game. The hard part is reaching the point where you can farm inferno, which no one has come close to yet.

    Actually, I can farm all acts in inferno except act 4 :D

    Well.. that's pretty good! Congratulations, I see no reason to disbelieve this guy at this point. Now... go get some fresh air and/or sleep dude. :D

    Haha, I intend to, as soon as I have made sure that I am not discredited or something, especially now that method cleared it :) And btw, Huge congrats to them for doing it 4 man!

    So has the OP commented on people pointing out his photoshop earlier in the thread? Specifically the part where his recent achievements shows the Wizard Hell completion achievement.

    Multiple times. I will boil it down for you: Buggy Achievements, if you haven't seen them bug, then you prolly haven't played the game :)

    No, they arnt buggy at all, not a single achievement has been buggy since playing the day it came out.

    Method just downed diablo on inferno 4man, no buggy achievements.

    Give out your battle tag and let people compared achievements to prove you arnt bullshitting.

    Better yet, send me your battle tag so I can see if you arnt full of shit.

    My battletag is in one of the screenshots, troll.

    There have been lots of Wizards solo'ing inferno with his build, it's pretty common.

    Super cheese, Super effective. Super retarded that blizz didn't catch this before release.

    Okay so every wizard has cheesed the fight from an OP skills which counts as clever use of game mechanics therefore the world first is discredited end of thread

    Haters gonna hate :) Roll wizard if you really have that big a problem with it tbh

    This seems totally fake. He has 1600 intellect and 43k damage?
    Don't tell me this comes from his weapon alone.

    Just can't be.

    You'd be surprised how much attack speed + a 1081.1 dps weapon can give ;)

    And to all the ppl calling it fake... How much more do you want me to link? Tell me which part of the game you want to screenshot, and I will do it.

    what about u make some real movie and post it all those screenshots aint proving anything real or fake no1 can confirm it with screenshots so i say make some video man ... also another thing even if u did it how we can know that u didnt use some kind of bug abuse or exploit ? the only ppl i trust on their diablo inferno progress is those with the live stream.

    You do know that the streamers all used 'clever mechanics' right? As an example, kripp and his grp killed a boss that was locked behind a door.
    Beating the game at this point requires some sort of clever mechanic use - mine is my build, which allows me to be able to take hits from diablo and have constant dps with hydra.

    if the key is ur build i dont see anything wrong in this if even there is some skill that is imba its not ur fault and u can use it .now lets go back to the solid proof theme since as u can see screenshots aint working to proof smth like this so i will again ask you to post a video.

    Just because Blizz didn't catch that a skill was OP doesn't make it any less of a fact that it was a cheesed fight because if the skills were in line he wouldn't have been able to do what he did they caught onto the monk one quick enough which is what stopped Athene from being able to go for the world first Diablo he already admitted cleaver use of game mechanics which makes his claim for World First null and void

    You do know that I can still easily die right?
    1: Diablo procs dot on his normal hit = insta-death
    2: Diablo hits me with fireball = insta-death
    3: Diablo Traps me = insta-death
    4: Diablo hits me multiple times because of his fast speed = dead
    5: Clone of my self hits me with 1 tornado = insta-death
    6: Diablo hits me with lightning for a second = insta-death

    I have a build yes, but it is in no way something that makes it a cake-walk m8

    The only legit way to kill Diablo in Inferno is with 4 people.

    As you guys are saying, and i agree: Doing this 1man is easier of course.

    Which means the "Real" Inferno is with 4 people. Just like Doing Normal mode in World of Warcraft world first is nothing, when Hardmode is.

    The real hardmode in diablo 3 would be inferno.

    Well, you can enter Inferno once you defeat hell, you can gear up with the AH or friends trading you, and if you had someone who was already just before diablo, then yeah, you could skip to there, right?

    I killed all acts, no skipping, Some friends joined me for Azmodan, and a demonhunter helped me kill champion packs in act 4 before diablo :)

    He probably just skipped mobs and went for bosses and thats why he's kill count is so low.

    so he skipped whole hell ? so he skipped gear farming ? man cmon... i am watching method's mage still hes gear is more then insane he is on like almost 50k dps and he cant do a crap at diablo at all so far....

    True, I only skipped truly hard champion packs

    Nice try, but I have my doubts. Look at this pic: http://imgur.com/a/7wLWQ#4

    There are his most recent achievements listed. See "Hell and Back"? That is the achievement for beating Hell with a Wizard. The achievement for Inferno is 'Prophecy Fulfilled'...

    Dude, that achievement, "prophecy fulfilled", is on picture # 6 I believe.

    Am i the only one who think that his total monster killls are far too little i havent even beat diablo in normal and im up at 10k kills

    you are right i have same kills as him and same achiev points as him and i am barely at half at nightmare so this guy prolly lies and this is fake photoshop....

    Lol - I was doing normal, nightmare, hell with 2 friends - so obviously I don't have that many kills since more minions dont spawn the more players there are.

    Can you make your build there and link it? Why did you go hydra and torrent over the "standard" stuff?

    Did you have a boss build and an aoe build? If yes, can you link both?

    I go my build with arcane torrent because it burns my ap slower, and the hydra is obvious - when I'm running from diablo it deals dmg :)

    honestly, I think ranged have a huge advantage over melee when it comes to solo'ing. But I think wizard is as strong as the other ranged, can't really compare to monk and barb :)

    And yes, I have died a ton, some champion packs have frustrated me quite a bit :D

    Oh god. Diablo on inferno? Are you doing it "legit" or using "smart mechanics" or something?

    I'm doing it legit, my build is just good I think - I'm using a different build for diablo tho... and I can't solo him at all, so I'm having help from a demonhunter friend, and the farthest we've gotten so far is half hp in fase 2 (the one with the clones)

    Oh and btw, just took down Azmodan!
