Trying to figure out if i finally got a lucky drop. Can rarely see anything comparable on the AH and when i do its always at 1-2 bil, probably because of the movement speed.Posted in: US Servers Trading
75/80 all res
8/10 frost% reduction
rolled intelligence, amount unknown since it double dipped (i'm guessing intel-dex 3rd random)
39 dex (too bad is wasn't +armor or int/vit)
12% movement speed
Any AH guru got an idea?

Congratulation to our lucky Shyam and thank you for your generosity Jaetch. I keep trying to reel my friends back into D3 as patches goes on since the game keeps getting better. This kind of incentive from the community will only help to keep it growing and active. I'm also happy at how close i was despite the downtime on the auction house! It help me set goals for upgrades.Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories

- You must have a fresh wizard, not a paragon 100 one crawling around Inferno.
At paragon 68. Painfully grinded at mp0 in a3 for many months.

Alredy decided that any pieces i would change or upgrade I would be giving them back to you to help you build another set or build a give away set of my own

It's been a little while Didn't have much time to play but still managed to gather 66 millions (i don't play the auction house, it's all grinded)Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
With 1.07 on the way and the incoming buff to xp on higher monster power, i was thinking about forming a group to farm mp6-10. I'd go shocknado with speed bubble(or 20% dmg if i'm fine on ias) for group instead of meteors with electrify weapon for thrash. Monk for aura, barb for buff and the last spot watever. Another cmww would make it easier for me but a resonating spike trap DH or an acid blob WD are probably more dps. Looking to fill up my friend list if anyone is interessted btw, everyone i know went back to WoW.
Should i start by buying a LoH Chantodo MH and OH? Dunno if i'd have enough to afford a decet witching hour after that.

It's been two weeks alredy. Didn't have much time to play but i managed to grab a few upgrade after loading my character on D3 upgrade site(no url rule) as suggested. The best stat to increase for dps gain was by far ias% so i brought 2 new rings and an amulet. Crit dmg% was too expensive for my budget so i went with +average dmg instead. Also managed to find a cheap andariel visage. My EHP went down a little bit though and I find myself dying a lil bit more, mostly to stupid packs like the reflect/fast ground stomper in the field of slaughter. I'm also no longer even on life gain vs reflect and need be mindful not to kill myself with a few crits.Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
Weapon wise, anything with life steal and a socket above 1,1k dmg is waaaaay above my budget. Pretty sure everyone is suffering from the same problem but gold is nowhere to be found on the ah. I can hardly sell legendary for more than 50-100k if they are sellable at all. I'll keep farming mp0 act3 for now and hope to get a lucky find.
I also brougth a wand with 10 apoc and ias% to reset archon timer when I get unlucky with wicked wind. However, it's hardly effective since anything besides large mobs like golgor and stomper dies in 2-3 ticks. Go figures, but the cheapest wand when I searched had 850 dmg so thrash vaporize before CM start ticking. I'll look again to grab a 300-500 wand instead I guess.
So yea, nothing amazing so far, always open to suggestion!

Alright! New weapon and Andy's visage for starters. I'll stick to archon for now and eat my crumbs for a while. No way i can afford all those cm/ww gears yet. I could but i'd sacrifice all dps and it would be too slow. Regarding the ww/cm -archon hybrid, i probably confused Loroese with someone else suggestion. Maybe Jaetch? The general idea was to clear thrash with archon when available and fall back on cm/ww for elites with the 1600% weapon dps archon pop on cooldown with a quick cancel right after.Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
Anyways, it's very neat to see this forum so active with a lot of helpful people. Thanks! I'll keep upping this thread to keep you guys posted.

What I meant by mp2 is that I’d like to eventually run mp2 in archon and have it feels like mp0. My xp/hours would be greater and you gain extra mf as bonus.For paragon/farming efficiency you don't necessarily need to go to MP2, MP0 is fine.
My goal is to upgrade my archon first to farm efficiently until I can graduate into a full-fledged cm/ww. I play alone 95% of the time because of my hectic work schedule. I’d like to have as much hybrid gear as possible that could used for both archon and cm/ww beside the mandatory Apoc pieces. Possibly even spec into archon instead of explosive blast like Loroese proposed in someone else topic.What are your goals, gearing up your Archon or gearing up as CMWW in order to get a Hellfire Ring? Do you play on your own or do you play in a group? In particular for the Hellfire Ring farming you should get some mates to help you out, as it's a pain to do that on your own (low budget CMWW builds have not much DPS and it takes ages to get the keys, and you won't be able to defeat the ubers fast enough on higher MPs due to the enrage timer).
You listed almost every slots xD, I’m still confused as to what I should upgrade first.For CMWW, you need to switch a lot of gear, i.e., you want around 5-10% more crit chance, you need APoC on one more slot (weapon or helm - most people go for weapon), and you need life on hit (life steal with CMWW only works if you have really insane dps, LoH is better in most cases, especially when you're gearing up). A wand with IAS, LoH, APoC, amulet/rings with more crit and LoH, and maybe Blackthorne's pants would be something to start looking for when gearing up for CMWW. Last but not least, you might want a bit more resistances and life for higher MPs - not that much more, but definitely not less than now.
I tried ww for when I fail at archon and need to reset the timer but with only 1 Apoc piece, it didn’t work. Piercing orb lets me kill mobs and keep moving while archon is down. I also tend to use it to kill my first elites pack if I meet it before I’ve found a large enough pack of monster to pop archon. I’ll try a spender like disintegrate for sure. I really didn’t liked RoF though because of the lack of aoe. Didn’t think of disintegrate, d’oh!Why exactly are you using a signature spell? You have APoC and good attack speed, you should be fine with a non-signature spell on left click (Energy Twister with Wicked Wind or Mistral Breeze, Disintegrate, ... whatever you like).
Will do, thanks!As for upgrading your Archon, there's not really one spot that stands out as particularly weak. Depending on the economy of the US AH, maybe look for a Mempo, some gloves, rings, Lacuni with crit, ... I'd suggest you load your character into d3up.com and use the d3bit.com tool to check how much dps/ehp you would gain from any potential purchase. It really simplifies purchasing a lot.

Sup everyone!Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
I recently started to get serious with D3 again on my wizard. I've read the forums and started to farm act3 as an archon after some struggle to gear up in act1-2. I'm only doing mp0 and mp1 at the moment to farm gold and xp for paragon. Im about to hit level 30.
Ultimately, i'd like to be able to tackle higher mp levels to get myself an hellfire ring as cm/ww. I managed to scramble 35 millions so far with my best sale been a stormshield for 9 millions. I obviously can't afford a full set of gear that would be efficient as cm/ww at the moment. So... what piece should i upgrade next? Possibly something that would boost my archon efficiency farming while been good for cm/ww later down the road. If i can manage mp2 as fast as mp0, that would be awesome for paragon and farming efficiency.
I can't post links yet so i'd appreciate if an older member could do it for me. I just signed up to write this post. Battletag is Aekys#1669.
Thanks in advance!
P.s. I have found most of the gears im wearing except the Triumvirate and the Lacunis. I was very happy when Tal chest armor and Zunni's boots dropped, even if they aren't stellar rolls.
