I did a bit of experimenting yesterday and came up with this build wich to me is perfectly viable to Farm MP8 at a reasonable pace without dying much.
This ist my setup: http://us.battle.net...jdSO!XgU!ZaaccZ
And here is my Wizard: http://eu.battle.net...9/hero/21783517
As you see I´m not sporting some kind of insane equipment here, so maybe some other Wizard players want to try this one too for I think that essence and loot drops are worth taking the fight to MS8.
The idea behind this build is mainly to stay alive without kiting or going all melee with Frost Nova and Explosive Blast while still putting out enough damage.
Im using Energy Twister with Gale Force as my main attack but Wicked Wind will work also while dealing much less damage. Right mouse button is the Crystal Shell Diamond Skin, the rest are Familiar - Sparkflint; Wave of Force - Exploding Wave; Magic Weapon - Blood Magic and Energy Armor with Pinpoint Barrier.
Passives are Critical Mass, Astral Presence and Temporal Flux. Critical Mass is the only passive that is really needed here you may assign the other two to your own liking. For me Temporal Flux is very supportive to this Build.
Gear wise you`ll need a good Apoc, Attack Speed and Crit. chance for this to work. I`ve got 18 Apoc, 2,38 ATS and 48.5% crit. on my Wizard, buffed with Scoundrel.
Playing this build is rather simple: with mobs on sight activate Diamond Skin and start unleashing the Energy Twisters. You`ll notice that the whole screen will quickly be filled with twisters wich trigger Critical Mass often enough for Diamond Skin and Wave of Force to be almost constantly available.
The skill that is really making this build special for non high end wizards is the Blood Magic rune on Magic Weapon. Its Life Steal is going totally crazy in combination with the Twisters and enough mobs on screen. Additionally Wave of Force is used to knock back melee attackers and to deflect ranged attacks like mortars or spears.
The downside of this build is the dependency on constantly hitting with the Twisters to trigger Magic Weapons`s LS. Mobs that force you to reposition yourself too often are a real danger here for you wont be taking alot of hits on MP8 without the LS.
I`ve made a few MP8 runs today on Act 3 and really enjoyed them, so I thought I might share this Build here if just for others to start experimenting with different Builds themselves.
If this is old news I apologize but I`ve not found something similiar on the net.

Any Information about the PS3 versions servers? They are not really going to use the same servers as the PC version`s are they?Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
