Thanks. I will check this out a bit later. It gets old fighting an RG for three minutes because you just aren't hitting it. This happens with both clusters of mobs and single targets. It's making archon "unfun".
Edit: This is solid advice, Cratic. I guess when playing D3, I should remember to "aim low". Clipping toes of mobs seems to be far more effective.
This is on the second cycle of archon with the overlap from Swami, 15 stacks of Gogok and the full bonus from T6. I understand the origin of damage in the build...but do not understand how it is doing absolutely NO damage when these conditions have been met in a GR below 80. It's maddening.
Super fun to watch the beam go through mobs and not do anything. Then it is backtracking to the entrance of the rift to try to find the "right" angle to shoot...and then do the same thing again when it fails as well. This happens with:
-both high and low archon stacks
-both high and low Gogok stacks
-full T6 bonus (4 stacks)
-both +2/-2 APS
It is happening in rifts below GR70 and above. It's a crying shame when an EB build outperforms archon due to the stupid beam not being worth a damn. I've had this happen with and without Zei's...with and without Power Hungry...with and without Starfire. It's beyond retarded.
I am not using hydras. I am getting quite fed up with this build NOT hitting things that are directly in front of it. I do not use Zei's...I am not using PH. I am watching the beam pass right through mobs and not do ANYTHING at all. My wizard is in full ancients with fairly solid rolls...all of her gear is augmented at 300+ intellect. I am working on getting them to 400+. Her gems are at level 80.
It becomes insanely frustrating to have to wiggle the beam back and forth like an epileptic in order to proc Manald Heal. I do like the build, but it seems if you have ANY latency issues at all it simply does not work. It's pretty pathetic when an EB build outperforms my archon at GR79. It would be a lot more fun to actually hit my targets.
Any ideas what might be causing the beam to not do anything whatsoever? It gets completely frustrating to watch other wizards in similar gear breezing through a GR of this level while mine takes four cycles to kill a pack because the beam misses.
I usually go into archon with the T6 bonus fully stacked...and then start ramping up Gogok and building the first set of stacks...but it really grinds my gears to get up to 70+ stacks and reset archon for an elite pack kill only to have the beam fail. Tips would be greatly appreciated...because I am about to flip out.
