Quote from chyralI'm not unfamiliar with the class, i have a paragon 44 wiz myself
The thing that made me re-roll a barbarian was;
1. Cm spammage. EB+WW spam was really simple and boring. Never tried to add meteor to the equation though. Seems to work very nice for people.
2.Archon's mobility issues. I was melting monsters away with a big lazer yes, fun. But a 10 second teleport wasn't cutting it. After trying barbarian with wotb+sprint it amazed me :)
Now after reading 1.0.7 notes which will increase xp on monster power levels, im thinking that i could use cm meteor on high mp to level.
Plus in 1.0.7 critical hits reduce archon's teleport cooldown. That would i assume make the mobility issues go away.(I have another hope that may be they'll fix oculus teleport bonus for archon aswell )
I would also encourage you to check out the fast-reset hybrid archon build.
You will have little mobility issue because this build does not assume you will keep up archon forever. Instead, it uses different means (LL or ET) to reset archon CD within seconds. This build is also good for high MP because you can pretty much use archon at will, even with short duration for elite or boss.
