I've been trying to do my research into the gear and spec advised and recommended for optimum progression and apoc/hydra looked to be the most popular and I can kite decently. Tonight I finally got my firebird boots to complete the 5 set bonus and be able to put my 2 hander back on, I also got a tal'rasha necklace in the next rift and put that plus the belt on. I am now a little bit too squishy for my liking right now mind you, with only 290k health, but I am tired currently so it could be due to that.
Other than needing to get my gems levelled up and possibly changing them if there's better out there under recommendation for this spec/Wizards; I am not sure where to go now in terms of gear other than a SoJ, I think my spec works for survivability and I play with a friend or two whenever I play, sometimes a full group.

Sep 16, 2014NorikoNeko posted a message on Apoc Hydra Firebird Spec. Gear/Spec advice (Same old!)Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
Mar 4, 2014Hey guys, I posted last year on here about my spec and gear problem and I've done some research regarding new specs, but I'm clueless about how the latest patch has changed how we should gear and I haven't found a comfortable spec for me that also feels speedy and/or what to place my paragon points in. I was previously an Archon Wizard as it felt most natural, but now I'm struggling to find a spec I'm agreeing with and clueless what sort of gear to get what stats for myself. Thanks in advance <3Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Noriko-1548/hero/851327 is my Wizard.
Jun 21, 2013Ah, that makes sense. I had some crafted bracers which gave me a few k of health and 8-9k of extra dps, so I'm using those now.Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
Jun 21, 2013Ok, another question regarding the BoA craftable items. Are Lacuni Prowlers not as good as they were anymore in terms of the 12% movement speed in that case? Also the attack speed you gain from them. I'm used to being able to run quickly and attack quickly as well.Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
Jun 20, 2013So I have currently done about six runs since coming back to Diablo III. I am Paragon level 56 and my run consists of these areas;Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
The Core of Arreat (Backwards)
Tower of the Damned
The Bridge of Korsikk
The Keep Depths level 2
The Keep Depths level 3
I have only got one set item and one legendary from doing this run. Is this because I just have bad luck? or is there a more advised route to take these days?

Quite a few things has changed, monster density, drop rates, new crafts, it's kind of had to remember them all. So i'd suggest you read up on some patch notes too.
To answer your first question, yes Archon has become even more viable. Last patch, they changed Archon, so that you didnt need the killing blow on the monsters, to get extra time, you just had to deal damage to them. Ofc they still need to die, but it's enough to put dmg on it and let some one else kill it. So coop-wise, Archon has become better/more viable. There are some spec variaties, but can still run with what you've got
Second question, stats weights are still the same. Crit Chance, Crit hit dmg, avg. dmg, atk speed, not necessarily in that order. Bracer, gloves, shoulders, neck can be crafted now, and are called Razorspikes of Int, Archon gloves of Int, Archon spaulders of Int and amulet of int. They're all bind on account as soon as you craft them tho, but it can also roll best in slot.
Hope that helps for starters
Edit, and now 've been gone from the computer for so long, others have alredy answered you...
Would the recipes actually roll better in stats than my current gear and not cost the earth? I have purchased the recipes but so far I don't see how they are going to be better without spending as much gold as it would to simply buy the upgrade.

1) Archon is still the most commonly used spec. Nothing has changed except for one big thing: since 1.08 you can use Archon in multiplayer, as any kill by any of your group members will now count towards Archon duration. No new information as of now... but hopefully soon Jaetch will publish an awesome video guide ;-) For the time being, you might get some info from my guide (see my sig), but I guess that was already around last time you played.
2) Imho the thing you really need is some more EHP. Get allres on helm, boots, maybe even chest (if you can't afford allres on chest get one with vitality, your HP is also quite low). In general everything is much cheaper now... but still, with 25m you won't be able to get 300k DPS (without sacrificing DPS). Loroese posted some nice recommendations for MP vs EHP/DPS, and as you can see your DPS/EHP are quite unbalanced ;-)
I knew my EHP needed to be improved, but I wasn't sure if there was any specific set items that Wizards use by a standard guide in Archon specs, being able to use it in multiplayer sounds like a brilliant idea though, thank you.I am also interested in any links towards routes to take, I remember I used the route used in Inferno mode Act III all the time.. but I cant quite remember all of it anymore. :$
Jun 18, 2013I stopped playing on the 2nd of January as Diablo was becoming to much of an obsession for me, but recently I've been tempted to much into trying Diablo again and I have a few questions now..Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
1. If Archon is still a viable spec to go for then is there any changes to the spec itself that I am outdated on?
2. What stats should I aim for? Since I have forgotten almost everything I knew from back then and now I can't remember what upgrade I wanted to go for next, at the time, everything would've cost me 90+mil to upgrade but I imagine the AH isn't the same as back then anymore. I only ave 25mil to spend currently.
Here's my little Wizard: http://eu.battle.net...548/hero/851327
Dec 18, 2012Got me a pretty little ring today from my second Hellfire craft :))Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
Dec 4, 2012Just an update but if you view my profile now you'll see I've had a few upgrades and spec change too am now looking into getting a new ring after spending 120mil on the new belt and 29mil on the new trousers. The EU auction house is expensive sadly.Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
I am now also farming on MP2 Act III rather comfortably.
Nov 25, 2012NorikoNeko posted a message on *archon help* I totally make love to myself with reflect dmgI agree, having more health is great so long as you have 550 ish resall (that being your lowest too) since you're then capable of taking many high reflect damage hits rather than taking some then having to stop for a bit then going again :3 I've learned that I am just being too paranoid about not having enough resall, 5k armour is nice to aim for too but not mandatory once you're at 3k :3Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
Nov 25, 2012Bump, still stands the same currently. Now in normal AH for 300mil buyout as I would prefer gold to money but PM if you'd like to buy for money with an offer or post here.Posted in: EU Servers Trading

Excuse me but i am sure you can handle even mp3 comfortably.
This is me in my MF gear. http://eu.battle.net...398/hero/773391
You have more EHP than me and and Life steal i am smashing through stuff in Mp3 act 3 to boredom. Only way i die is to reflect packs when i nuke them in archon before noticing they're reflect.But "human" form makes them very doable.
And i can manage with only a couple deaths in act1 mp5.
And i am no way a better player than you or anyone reading.
I think you should change your spec a bit as Jaetch's spec (you said you copy him) is for jaetch and his 500k dps.We're at a lower lvl so we need to adapt accordingly.
Just my opinion.
I agree with you on this and I do try to adjust, as for spec I use what feels comfortable, I'm awfully impatient when it comes to running on my runs and I love fleeting shrines for this reason, hating to stop or waste any time, I may try MP3 though with a change to prismatic armour back to the gain in resall (can't remember rune names for the life of me right now) as I tried MP3 earlier today in Act III and ended up getting a bit impatient with how slow it took to kill elites and I was getting out of Archon form too quickly for my liking, I was dying more often too.
I admit I have been naive in thinking I can just upgrade my gear, keep my spec and trondle along with the same spec until eventually I reach MP10.
Today I have been farming for keys with someone asking if anyone would like to join them in MP5 key runs, I joined in and we did a lot of runs and I gained a few unlucky legendary and set items until I stumbled upon this gem which I am hoping to sell in the EU auction house for gold or euros.
Also hehe at Maka, checked your profile and giggled that you had 259999 kills
Nov 24, 2012Bump Will lower the bid to 280mil actually. Lowered the bid to 50€ and buyout 70€ in RMAH.Posted in: EU Servers Trading
Nov 24, 2012As said in topic, selling Tal Rasha's Relentless Pursuit which is the chest item of the setPosted in: EU Servers Trading
It has the following stats..
72 Resistance to All Elements
9% Attack Speed
Level Requirement Reduced by 7
I am looking for a bid of 300mil o.n.o and will be placed in the RMAH at 60€, if no one has bid on it by the time the auction ends then it will go to the highest gold bidder on this thread.
Thank you for your time and interest.
