Congratulations on your achievement!
And ignore those spoilsports, I guess those guys have never watched TV, played tennis, or spent ANY time on something they enjoy doing?

Hi everyone,Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
I've pretty much overhauled like half of my gear, and ended up with less DPS (91k) but considerably more EHP (316k). The recommended EHP table says that I can probably do MP9, but it seems to take me FOREVER to kill anything - I suppose it's because my DPS is too low.
I guess I've swung a little too far in the opposite direction (towards mitigation and away from DPS). However it seems (again) that any DPS upgrades are super expensive (like APoC Chanto OH with decent +dmg, Blackthorne's neck with +int, etc). How do these wizards I read about get 150k-200k DPS?? That just sounds crazy to me, does every slot have to be filled with close-to-BIS gear to attain those stats?
What would a reasonable DPS be to aim for, to be able to solo MP10? My target is to be a complete bad-ass and solo the whole of act 4. That would be like 'completing the game' for me!

Wow, thanks everyone for your insights - they're much appreciated.Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
I guess I had to adjust my expectations just a little. My WW barb was indeed able to clear MP3 way faster than my wizard, which is just a tad disappointing considering that I spent much less gold on him. Now that I know CM/WW works differently I don't feel nearly that bad
I've made a few further changes to my gear and am standing now at:
44% CC (49% with pinpoint barrier)
99K DPS (105K with pinpoint barrier)
and here are my remaining questions:
1) I get so much trouble with ranged mobs (such as those Heralds of Pestilence) and can actually die even at MP2 or MP3 - is this normal? I try to tele to those mobs when I see them but sometimes I get overwhelmed when tele isn't back off CD yet.
2) What should I be looking for to increase my DPS - Int, CC, or CD? I realize that my CC is pretty low, and will look into the Mempo/apoc Chanto offhand option. I'm also going to upgrade my shoulders to get more Int (that seems like the obvious thing), but which is the stat that will give me the best bang for the buck at this point?
It sure seems to me that upgrading any of my pieces now is going to be pretty expensive, so I'm looking to maximize what I get from my gold naturally.
Thanks in advance again for everyone's help!

Hello all you vets here on Dfans.com!Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
I'm currently playing a Wiz and am stuck on what gear to upgrade next. I'm running a CM/WW Energy Twister build now, but have also tried Meteor (Star Pact and Meteor Shower)/CM builds. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like I can solo anything above MP2 (and MP2 is too slow and painful to be worthwhile).
Could it just be that Wizards are 'harder' to play than WW Barbs? I can literally snooze through MP3 at least on my barb without having to pay attention lol, and I spent less gold on him than on my Wiz.
Please take a look at my profile:
Resists are in the 500-ish range currently.
Any guidance would be SO MUCH appreciated - thanks in advance!

I've never even had anything sell for more than like 100k, I'm guessing (and hoping!) drops REALLY ramp up at higher MP levels...Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
