hey guys, i need some advice. i used to main WD and Wiz, so for last season i finally played DH intensely. that however quickly became a burden, because you wouldnt get into any higher GR groups, since DH was not meta at all. and solo'ing diablo all the time is highly inefficient and boring.
so for the upcoming season i am thinking barb/monk, as i havent played them much either. but it would severely destroy my enjoyment for the game, if i find myself playing a discarded class again.
tl;dr : monk or barb for some speedy gameplay (bounties, TX rifts) and a spot in GR groups
...egoshooters on consoles. Egoshooters with controller sucks hard. But it's fair since everybody uses the same controller. It wouldn't be fair when someone could just plug in a mouse+keyboard.
oh you innocent little peon. let me tell you about the world of XIM4 or similar adapters that allow the use of keyboard/mice on consoles. also there are mice on the market that allow for script injection to make no-recoil/no-spread/etc hacks pretty much completely hardware-sided and undetectable. i guess i dont have to tell you about macro keyboards? cheating on consoles is harder to do and generally more expensive than writing a simple script on pc, but to believe in a cheat-free console-environment is mildly entertaining.
the day they ban thud will be the day i stop playing diablo3. it makes the game so much more fun and adds a lot of things that blizzard should have included to begin with. botting on the other hand is rather harmful, but thud adds very little that will make you progress so much further as everyone is crying about.
Isnt there another spell you can use so you dont have to be in melee range? I feel that if you could stay at range, you wouldnt be so squishy. Reapers wraps would be nice with this build also.
Wizards don't really have any reliable ways to stay at range, unlike WDs and DHs. Besides pets who can tank for you, nothing can really reliably keep monsters at a distance (based on my experiences at least).
errrm... Temporal Flux' 80% MS Reduction not enough for you?
Your Wiz needs at least 20k more life. Otherwise fine for an archon build.
Im playing mine from time to time as well as an Archon, since my WD hit p100 a few months ago.
60k life should be a minimum to aim for.
I dislike the Barb so i cant comment on that char really.
