So, I've stuck with a FO variation. I'm focusing on group play CC. I like to freeze enemies in place while my tank and other dpsers nuke. I suppose I'll discuss my gear and then my intent on progression as I acquire more gear. This current wiz can churn through T4 with ease.
Helm - I actually love my Pride's Fall. Coupled with dominance the 'proc?' is on at all times and I can whip out 9 FO in a row instead of 6. That's not to mention my 4 APoC that lets me continue to whip out more, like up towards 16 in bigger mobs. My helm uptime proc is up 90% of the time, it's worth it to me. I actually have a nicely rolled Andy's with +cold dmg to make my FO stronger. But, I find quantity is better than quality, I'd rather shotgun a ton of FO rather than actually aiming and firing off 4-6.
Ammy, I love this thing! Stand in any plague, blood pool any poison and it heals you! I've found a few cameos, but I find this raises my survivability.
Blackthorne Chest, belt, pants - I don't know why people knock this set so much, I really like it. Makes my wiz really durable, no more running around dodging and dying. I just stand there and nuke nuke nuke. I have a nicely rolled hellcat, but I'm willing to trade the 4 set bonus for higher dps. I got the pants from a friend, so I'd like to have 2 sockets, but it rolled with dex. The extra elite dmg and elite dmg reduction are nice.
Cains gloves and boots - I really like these, but they are part of my build that will have to go. I have Frostburns in the bank, 2 pairs actually. They rolled horrible, and only +cold dmg, int, vit, reduce crap. I'm not willing to take the dps drop until I get some ice climbers for the escape. Kulle-aid would be nice to bust through walls, I've got leach and regen, haven't gotten lucky yet.
Aughild's shoulder and bracers - I researched and these seem to fit the bill perfectly. Dmg reduction and extra elite dmg? Gold. Because of my Pride's fall, I don't have to have Reaper's Wraps for resources.
Azurewrath and Mirrorball - I freeze stuff with 3 glacial spikes that hit hard, love it! awesome to stand there and semi perma freeze elites and bosses.
Rings are self explanatory, probably BiS?
Progression - I see the most important pieces to replace are gloves, boots, and pants. Some nice frostburns with cold dmg, int, CD, and CHR. Ice climbers without run speed, and blackthornes with sockets.
I can roll T4 quite easily with a friend who is lower geared than me. My 50% extra dmg to elites feels fantastic. I appreciate the durability of my wiz as well, as it's hard to have high dps AND be able to survive.
I think I can do T5 with a proper group. What does it really take to be able to take on T6? A Tal set? The only wiz set piece I've come upon are some Vyr gloves, 2 in fact, on the same day!
