    posted a message on Arcane Dynamo + Hydra/Venom
    Sincerely, when I tried it only looked to the first ticks, since in the consecutives it's hard to say how many pools are stacked. With the fist tick it was rather consistent increasing the damage, but while trying to look at more ticks it's really hard to judge, even frapsing it. But truely, it doesn't look like there is a 75% difference in the big ticks. Have to wonder if the people saying it increase the first tick only are spot on.

    Yes, I have been using Arcane Dynamo since I got into the Blizzard / Venom Hydra build and it works great.

    Thanks for the post, it's good to know. Though I'm wondering if it's worth it to try to push as high as you can the damage reduction, getting lower and lower vitality, and making for effective your life regen. I'm trying to get a bit a of life regen, and it feels like you need a ton of it to be noticeable. And most of the times, your deaths comes from 3 hits in fast succession.

    posted a message on Weapon DMG for Wiz
    Though I wonder... if I'm using any kind of +% elemental damage, the elemental damage of the weapon is increased?

    For example, if you use Cold Blooded (+20% damage) and that weapon was cold damage instead of poison... will it change anything if you cast a Disintegrate? Or the damage of your spells it's always asociated with the school of the spell regardless of element of the weapon?

    The more logical option will be that the elemental damage of the weapon only change things when you melee with it, but... you never know.

    At the very least, they should make the buffs from companions visible. The enchantress reflect will be far far far more useful if you knew when it's up.

    Yes, you can't filter movement speed by pants or bracers... :S

    And you can't filter stats on a named item. So to search for an Inna's Glory or Lacuni Bracers, with the stats you want, you have to put All Armor, filter for movement speed, 2 stats you want.. and skip through lots of boots to find what you want. At least the name color is different.

    Blizzard can crit, and the damage of crits it's baked on hydra damage, so having that crit it's not a waste in blizzard/venom hydra build. I had that stats up to Belial, and I did fine (except against Fast packs). Switch Familiar with Teleport/Fracture if you have problems with survivability, and let blizzard and hydras do their job by circling around mobs. Get some life regen or life on kill, something will hit you from time to time.

    I personally prefer to use Seeker and Arcane Dynamo to boost +75% blizzard and hydras, I don't really miss Teleport on Act 3, but it always depend on what you are farming.

    Really, the best way it's to find a corner, die there, and don't pass near it. Some packs are just not worth the time.

    Fast spiders. Wow.

    The mobs are the kite, you are the one running to make the kite fly.

    So... it's hit & run without the mob touching you.

    From a undergeared wizard pov (25k life, 22kdps with 15% enchant), the build that suited me better was:

    Let the blizzard and the hydra do the work, pay attention when you get 5 stacks of dynamo to try to lure enemies into the charged blizzard or hydra, and have patience, it can be done with that gear as long as you keep kiting (and rebuffing yourself! It's a long combat)

    Quote from Derenzy

    Someone fill me in on this venom hydra and why its so OP.

    EVERYONE seems to use peircing orb....but seems to me electrocute...the one that travels through...like rays...does more damage? Its lower damadge...but its soooooo quick

    Agree with that. Piercing Orb seems more popular, but I can't see why when Electrocute with Blast rune do the same but with more dps. I suppose that it's because if you do a single attack, move, the Orb hits harder, but the moment you can stay your ground a couple of seconds.... Electrocute does much more damage.
