    What?
    RRoG comes from Act 1 Horadric Cache. Period. The end. That is the only source. I'm not sure how a Rift Guardian is even being mentioned as a possibility.
    A4 bounty has all the other acts' bounty rewards too.
    Very true. If you are feeling exceptionally lucky or bored of Act 1 then Act 4 is a possibility but just keep in mind that an Act 4 cache has every act's rewards on its loot table. That can sometimes work out to your advantage if you're not fully geared and could use some other items from other acts. The Act 3 neck in particular can roll out as well as any other amulet and the bonus is nothing to scoff at.
    What neck is that?

    Besides what Phuzi0n said (it can also drop from act 4's), the OP is asking because there used to be a greater cache from the rift guardian, but that loot got changed to just drop from the RG, so he's curious is cache only items can then drop from the RG (they can't).
    Exactly, and thank you for the clarification. I didn't think so. Yeah I've run a few dozen A1 bounties with no dice and am getting a bit bored so I wanted to branch out.

    Just to be clear, Kadala can't drop it either?

    Anything you see in my wiz that is deficient? I feel like I am not making use of the Thunderfury (which I just got 2 days ago).

    I know RRoG is A1 horadric cache only, but does that include the drop from a Rift Guardian? I remember those used to be called greater cache so was wondering if there was any crossover.

    And, since Im asking, can some of the more knowledgable wizards look at my build and point out anything that's easily corrected? I am currently running T2 easily, although the kill speed is just a tad slow. Usually rift guardians go down in a minute or under, no real survivability issues, although if I engage 2+ elites at once things can sometimes (not always) get interesting (meaning I just have to be careful).

    Thanx in advance.

    Edit with a link to my wizard.

    I wish there were viable 2H wizard builds. Of course, Im not sure there are not, but searching google Im not finding any good ones. Its more a flavor thing. What if the Staff of Zoltan Kuhle were a legendary; it would be awesome. To my understanding it makes very little sense to use a 2H when sources give so many benefits. I dunno, maybe they could fix this by letting staffs have 2 gems...

    Just wanted to update -- I have progressed to T1. I still have some questions for getting better:

    1. What is my worst piece of gear?

    2. Is there any obviously wrong with any of my gear?

    I started farming T1 just so i have an opportunity to get set pieces. Against most elites I wade in, FoH them until wrath is gone, then Provoke to recharge wrath, then HF and continue with FoH. Usually this will end the battle, occasionally I have to wait for HF to cycle and give it another round (Extra Health).

    With almost 1000 AR and 13K toughness, I'm surprised Im find myself in situations where I am in danger. I activate law of justice if I feel I am taking too much and save AC for mortal danger. Its saved my ass once.

    What else can I do? I keep looking for Str/Vit/CC/CD, in that order, and also feel like I am missing some opportunities for +Holy/+FoH/+HF. Is something like +x FoTH or +x Holy better than CC? And, is +15Holy better than +15FoH or +15HF, reasoning being that holy applies to both?

    thats what I have been doing; the question is since strength affects both damage and armor, you also get survivability benefit for rubies. So how does it compare to the benefit from diamonds?

    my goal is to play it well, not just survive. You are correct that its really elites that do the damage. The trash are easy, but I have to hit em a few times to kill em. What are my worst pieces of gear and what should i do about them?

    this build is great, I am killing things much faster now. I still need some help.

    http://www.diabloprogress.com/hero/hvgotcodes-1121/SinSlayer/44650138

    I am in danger of dying on Master difficulty, Id like to get into T1. What should I improve? This is for a hardcore character, so mistakes are not allowed.
