Jaetch's Torrent Time Bomb Wizard

Our Wizard class mod Jaetch has posted a new video where he demonstrates a Wizard build focussed around Explosive Blast - Time Bomb and Arcane Torrent - Disruption. Below you can see one of the specs, but don't miss the opportunity to watch the video itself for a better understanding of the skills' roles in this case.

Feedback on Hellfire Amulet wanted
Well, that sounds like a very interesting amulet to a goatman. What do the rest of you think about that as a possible reward for completing Infernal Machine events? (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

WD's Grim Reaper Tips

Wachati made a thread on the official forums with all sorts of useful informations about the Grim Reaper, a Witch Doctor's Voodo Mask which summons mimics to help you in battle. Below are a few of the questions he answers. Check it out.

Q: How much damage do the mimics do?
They do 100% of the WD damage. 
This includes buffs (PtV, BBV, GF) and debuffs (MC, Piranhas), +% elite, +% elemental. 
One exception: +% skill does not transfer to the mimics (so don't bother with the likes of +% Spiders)
Q: Whats the deal with DoTs?
The Grin Reaper Mimics do not have any of the hard caps on the WD dot's. This means you can have as many Spider Queens, Lob Blobs, Pyrogists, and Phantasm as the Mimics can cast.
Exception: each mimic will only have one Manitou and it will go away when the mimic goes away.
Need to test Haunt

Legendary Gem Suggestions

Our own Zero(pS) has created a thread on our forums, showing off and asking asking for suggestions for the upcoming Legendary Gems. Many other users have already posted their own ideas so check out the thread and feel free to do the same or discuss existing suggestions!

The developers have recently been talking about the idea of adding Legendary Gems to the game.
They also mentioned that these will likely be only socketable in Rings and Amulets.

  • I believe the reasoning for this is for sockets to have some meaning in these slots, and for them to be a competing affix with things like Attack speed, CHC and CHD. I also think that's meant to "limit" how many legendary Gems you can have equipped at a time, so there's actually an interesting choice to be made at the end-game (which wouldn't be possible if you could equip them on Chests/Helms/Pants).
With that in mind, I came up with a few ideas of what these Gems could be, their lore, the philosophy behind them and potential powers that could bring some change to the game's current meta-game.
