You have to abandon offensive spell and buff, use a single armor that suite your gear (mine primastic due low resistance) and work on passive damage increase bonus: 20% chill, 20% slow time, 15% frost nova.
Use this simulator to understand how much DPS you can do with buffes. Having LoH or similar increase survival ALOT but it's not mandatory, as I said mobs won't even touch you.

Never used LoH or Life steal, just blood magic as archon. I actually play mp8 flawlessy as CM/WW with poor ehp, just hit 2,74 attack speed and 42-50% crit: mobs won't even touch you, while all the other damage (pools, arcane lazors etc) are absorbed by Diamond skin.Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
Go for Chantodo with socket and average Int.

People still search some kind of ruolistic pvp everywhere, meanwhile OSI servers are still online. All the true pvp players should go back there, the others asking for two-buttons pvp (?) on a hack-n-slash.. well, I just say LOL. Whatever Blizz will introduce must be taken as a side event, nothing more/less than an Infernal Machine bullshit to fullfill patches.Posted in: PvP Discussion
The (marketing) CORE of Diablo it's and it will perma-be the ITEM FARMING. Nothing else.
And now get all back to your mindless monster melting.

Didn't know about movment speed cap sorryPosted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories

Andariel visage slow your exp but hugely increase your killing spree in Archon, apart that you just need a black weapon with crit (socket?) and a cheap triumvirato. Next level it's with Lacuni (36% movment speed LOL) but with crit chance are quite expensive.Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
That's all, you're already highly geared for mp1-2, some improvments can make you perma-Archon mp4.

Absolutely Alkaizer route. This dude made an awesome Archon budget wizard and related video with the route. I'm doing it on mp3 quite easy (with better gear, obviously) and I'm considering to nerf dps, go mp2 and use head socket + infernal machine ring. The exp rate is amazing, seriously.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Must say that I keep swapping missions, I used to farm Act III (like everyone) pre 1.0.5 so I'm really tired by it. But works.

Yeah a week ago I started a mp2 act II key run and the first kill was a goblin, wich dropped orange, then the first elite pack, second and third, 4 legendaries in a row, I ended 50-60 mins after with a total of 9 drops. I usually get 1 legendary per day or two.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

You lack of critical damage, try to change your gloves with a combo crit and crit damage (if trifecta with ias is better). 30-35% of critical damage on gloves will bump you at least of 15k dps. Also the tal rasha bonuses are fine, but the belt is quite horrible and the BiS belt for every wizard is the Witching hour (wich has critical damage and ias).Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
A huge increase will come swapping the chest with tal rasha (so you can change the belt and keep the bonus) and keep the zunimassa bonus with Zunimass boots (wich are BiS aswell).
As you can see my toon has probably worst gear than your, but I managed to get 132k dps and I only have 230% critical damage. A proper weapon/amulet/belt would increase dps at least another 30-40k.
- Change gloves, ASAP
- Get Tal rasha chest
- Get Zunimassa boots
- Get some bracers with better stats
Remember, INT has priority, every 10 stat point you'll gain 1 to All res. Reaching 3000 int is a solid 300 to all res and a huge dps increase. Don't understimate also the power of Add % life affix.
edit: (I guess people already said that your Vile guard is rolled for barbs and not wizards :D)

Well I remember the first patches, after release, when Inferno was Inferno and nobody was beating it with the same build. Nowdays you're forced to CM and almost perfect rolled BiS items to reach MP10 wich yes, isn't that important, but still reachable in 1-2 ways for a wizard. Design limitation in my opinion. It's the same of all theyr games: instead of fixing theyr errors replacing with new things, they just nerf the current till the "doable" level.Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
Why we're forced to Archon-CM build to reach mp10, even if it's worthless? I don't think it's the same for other classes.. I hope. When D3 was released I was very happy by the skill system, hundreds of choices and builds, similar to vanilla/tbc wow.
Maybe I'm just tired of the same class, never played anything other on D3 apart wizzy
Edit: With my gear and build farming on mp3-4 or even mp5 is really fast and worth the time, considering drops and exp, I made the thread looking for suggestions on builds, wasn't believing CM and Archon were the only way to progress on 1.0.5
10/30/2012 8:45:17 AM
That build is very intere sting, but without LoH and some solid all resistance I die too often, plus I feel so nerfed not being able to derpTeleport here and therePosted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
My build is not pure Archon but as I said mp2-3 it's very easy and fast, apart damage reflect wich mean 3-4 deaths before the pack fall.
Maybe re-rolling Shaman and swapping the gear - as many people did - is the best solution right now. Otherwise I'm forced to look for APoC gear and go CM wich I really hate..
Well, thanks for the tips anyway. At least now I really know how this class has been destroyed.
