I think the feat is more a matter of devotion and consistency and time management than whiteknuckle skill...
If condescending makes you feel better though...

Grats and thank you for making this thread!Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
You have spent a great deal of gold accross all of those characters... did you sell things from a previous character to make money for your next one or did you just have a lot of gold? Clearly you made a decent amount off of your findings but did you ever resort to buying gold to fill in any gaps or was it all farmed?
Would you only sell something on the ah if it was worth over 1mil or do you sell lots of lesser things?
Edit: Also your demon hunter farming setup would be great!

Switched out my Zuni's chest for a Tal Rasha and Depth Diggers for Blackthorne's... Also got a crit+as amulet.Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
When the servers back up I'll be surveying the wreckage of my poor past choices. I'm trying to get as much out of 10m as I can while maintaining +150k damage but I feel like I've just lost a lot of AR/ehp...
Gonna need to get cracking on some new shoulders. I wish crafting would swing more my way but 100 crafts later, nothing much except for nice gloves. I hope I've made some good financial choices finally but it seems no big steps can be made from here without spending big money.
Trying to stay away from gold purchasing from RMAH as it has become quite dangerous in times past. On the other hand I'm awful at making 100s of millions farming in game but I'm great at working part time shifts at a restaurant for the equivalent dollar value.
Hard to rationalize.

So I'm seeing a lot of different setups, each with Life on hit on a Ring, Amulet or Pants... (in very very few cases on weapon), so how do you decide where to put that life on hit so you can devote the rest to trifecta stats and such (or in pants case Inna's)?Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
Edit: Also do no wizards ever get blackthorne's pants AND amulet? seems like a lot of great stats between them... or is that just too much?

I really wanted to be in on that EHP train which is why I felt so on-point getting a 3 piece Zuni's bonus including a decent Pox... but now I feel like I've missed the mark in both build cohesiveness AND ehp.Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
Thanks again for the clarification Jaetch.
OT Edit: 1.0.8 sounds pretty cool! Game seems to be going in a great direction.

Also Ras, grats on the sickest amulet craft ever. I've only attempted 8 so far but I don't see myself getting that for a good while.Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories

Everything is very clear to me now... thanks Bagstone and RasAlgethi... I'll also study Jaetch's guide just so I can remember it.Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
Now that minimal life on hit seems fine in conjunction with blood weapon I guess I can ditch my zuni's chest and go for a tal rasha's :\
Trade in these Depth Diggers for Blacks or Inna's
Find a high speed/apoc chantodo with some damage
Find an AS/CC amulet/bracers... (though for crit and such I really wonder if I should invest in Natalya's shoes and ring :\ but then what do i do bout zuni's pox??) This Zuni stuff was a really bad choice.
Analysis paralysis getting to me again... The one big thing I gleaned from all this is that my Crit Damage (a coveted stat to me as I liked archon) was overvalued and that I should have just gone for cc/as on everything first and left CD to my weapon primarily (but now investing in a chantodo's with ias I dunno that I can even accomplish crit dam).
I don't have the money to be super duper with two builds so I feel like I should just commit fully to cmww until I get the money for more sets since cmww is the alpha for all things wizard (sans low mp speed runs).

RasAlgethi and Jaetch are two examples of cm wizards with huge ehp, great damage but no lifesteal/loh/apoc... I always found these to be very useful things on most wizards in general, how do you guys get by without those sustaining things? Is your ehp just so high that you are never threatened by anything?Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
I'm assuming you guys are farming mp10 with those setups/builds. What are your attack speeds also? I see so many debates between the right attack speed be it 2.5, 2.7 or even 3.0aps but some of the higher end wizards could seriously give a fuck cm/ww or not.
I feel like I'm missing something in terms of what a "good" build is... is that type of archon build with that gear setup for mid-mp speed runs or for uber bosses or high mp? Is that the best applicable method with that level of gear?

Does the Tal-Rasha's set bonus do anything to your damage stats on paper?Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories

For observation I have now switched to my ideal high MP spec (although sometimes I switch Crystal Shell/Prismatic Armor/Chain Explosion thing/Crit +15% nova/and teleport-fracture when i'm really scared).Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
If I could stay in the build I'm currently using and do High MP that would be stellar. I love meteors. Has that been deemed lame or less effective yet? I know chain explosions procs CM more but I like the LoH proc from liquefy and the burst from meteor itself...
Also Please note my gear and see what I could lose and in favor of what... I just realized I haven't shown my CM spec/gear even once.
Edit: Sometimes I switch from Liquefy to Meteor Shower because it procs many crits, does good LoH regen and looks awesome.
By the way you guys are amazing. I can't thank you enough for helping even if it doesn't mean much to you to do so. I'm a concept artist for small games companies so if any of you would like drawings I'd gladly give ya a discount
