Once again...thanks a lot!
I couldn't have done it without you!!
Once again...thanks a lot!
I was playing the good old whirlwind last night on the PTR to test out the 6 piece change.
It looks like they changed it from 2500% additive to 400% Multiplicative damage.
So far its looking much better. While not the absolute best, its going to bring back the fun for WW.
I am sleepy as hell at the moment, but by looking at your character, this looks like an improvement. I'd say run 50s untill you pump your gems to 50, and then try slowly to go higher. Of course, ancient weapon would be good, but that is not up to you, it's up to game whether it will drop it or not
And one more thing, if you are confident and are doing 50s with ease, you could swap out Vile Ward for Nemesis Bracers, it speeds up rifting quite a lot.
But that of course depends on your play style and what suits you the best
Diablo is grind fest that requires a lot of time invested:
- You need to farm up your gear
- You need to farm up materials and keys
- You need to level up gems you will use
- You need to level up gems that you will spend for Augments
This can eat up a lot of time, and having a group helps a lot (especially if you have someone with who you can talk on skype or teamspeak while doing it). It becomes tedious at some point. For me it's usualy arround paragon ~800 and when I finish Season Journey, because of other things in life that require attendance, like work and sleep and family time
Unfortunately this build you mentioned is nothing but bullshit.
WW can do 85+ but you need 2000 paragons and all ancient augmented gear for it.
Forget about it for now.
There are 3 top builds:
lon frenzy barb
earthquake MOTE barb
with Raekor/Charger being the most popular/esiest to gear for/farm with.
Main problem with builds is that their sales line ("GR90+!" and so on) doesn't say that you most probably need to be 1000+ paragon, and to have entire ancient gear augmented, and to have gems that are 80+ level
You can check builds and items of people that achieved leaderboards by pressing in game Shift+L, and then selecting Hero Details. That might give you some idea on what works and what not.
For you, you need ancient weapons first, that should boost your damage for ~5 tiers of GR, and then to start working on toughness.
I can recommend Charge/Boulder toss build, which I am using now, and I'm having easy time in GR65 (without any augments and partialy ancient gear)

Other builds that rock hard are pure charge and fire based Might of the Earth, so take a look into those builds and just keep farming.
You can farm forever and not see any of the items mentioned above. There is absolutely no point in making a list of items you want to get and waiting for them to drop. They might never drop and you might get super frustrated (I did the mistake and told myself to get any wizard set for the 500 int bonus, not gotten any 2 items of any wizard set so far after a loooot of playing, so ultimately I'm feeling a bit frustrated now).
Also, you cannot aim for a build unless you have the items for it. Look at all the items that you have and create a build around it. I disagree with the notion of "go fire everything else is crap". Many, if not most, end-game wizards play arcane, and there are viable frost and lightning builds (some of them in the build section). It all comes down to the items you have, and the skills you like.
So, based on your gear I'd have gone for exactly the same build that you chose, with one exception: Prodigy. MM with Mirrorball is such a huge DPS spell that Prodigy is unnecessary; go Blur for extra survivability or Audacity for extra DPS. In terms of getting more survivability on gear Helycon already mentioned everything there is to say.
Focus on mitigation, if necessary you can drop some HP. I'd ditch the Cain helmet (extremely low rolls and socket is useless compared to, for example, allres) and possibly even Firebird's set (you don't need cooldown reduction and resource cost reduction with your build, and MS on boots is a waste, so three wasted stats just to get the 500 int bonus). You could try to gamble Blackthorne's set as it allows to access higher Torment levels (that's my only ticket to higher difficulties as well right now), and put the second Aughild's piece on shoulders or helmet.
