Wizard Energy Twister with Delsere

I'm having trouble doing any damage with this build. I've got all of the items and skills listed, but it takes me ages to kill anything T10+. I've tried both the group and solo versions of the build to no effect. What am I missing?

I had the same problem. Then I came to the conclusion that this is more of a survivability build. It is not ideal for damage.

I'm doing good damages but my arcane runs out so quickly using twister.  Anyway to regenerate resource faster.

On the multi version: you should consider that the build requires at least one support who feed you with health globes for the reaper. If you just teamed up with random people you should go with the solo.

And on the solo version: I've only recently geared to DMO from FB, but I easily cleared GR55 with it without any AP issue. My current build for reference (not that it is anywhere near optimal, just for comparison): http://www.d3planner.com/523621847

The main thing for this build is that I don't cast ET manually. Of course if I'll have the AP generation required I should consider casting it between Etched Sigil casts to maximize the effectiveness.

The other is that if you go with channeling you should be wary of the attack speed bonus. Of course it's nice to cast faster but you'll run dry fast. This probably can be cured with APoC or higher generation/cost reduction, but since I currently go with Aquila, which requires constant high AP to work optimally and don't have the generation, I go without Pain Enhancer and probably going for Esoteric on higher rifts instead of Powerful or PE, at least until I find a viable solution to this which scales adequately

I just solod a 55 grift.  Damage is definitely not the downside.  I like the solo version for groups, too, if you don't have a monk/barb feeding you globes like mentioned in the guide.  So basically go with solo setup for grp.

 

If you don't have furnace, there is a sword that increases dmg 35% when channeling, too.  This is a very odd build, very situational.  You need to get as many twisters out as possible on elites but also have everything inside slow time.  channel disintegrate/arcane while setting up big fights

I will say if your grp does *not* have solanium, the posted grp build doesn't work that well IMO.  I spend too much time waiting on mana regen in a big fight without constant health globes.  I run with the channeling/solo version in most pugs. Since I'm a casual player that's pretty much all I run with =P.

APD
 

Each stunned enemy within 25 yards reduces your damage taken by 9–12%.


where the stuns come from??

The Frost Novas triggered by the Halo of Arlyse in the Cube is considered a stun.

You already take the best rune (the damage reduction one), and the other runes are only marginally beneficial compared to the scaling protection coming from APDs - they scale with the number of enemies you engage.

For the group build, I'm having a hard time with AP, after i cast the first 5-7 i basically run out.

I have all the right pieces and passives etc with apoc but no luck.

Is it 100% necessary to have globe feeders in the group?

 

seems like this guy makes it mandatory

http://www.diablofans.com/builds/69867-2-4-gr100-energy-twister

 

Otherwise i need really high density of monsters to get the AP regen going nicely, but by then they are already dead unless i play on a GR too high for my own good i imagine.

Definitely. This group build is out of the question without globe feeders.

True ... it is a damage type mostly beneficial if supported by globe creators. I have tried a similar build based on twister, and it is not a solo build. If you want a great solo build go for their build ... based on arcane orbs.

How do the guys on Season leaderboard run the group build in solo grfits?

I just don't seem to understand, even with +500 int on everything they still have no AP right?

With some changes this build is THE best build for solo GR's as Blatty has shown. Why is it not listed under Solo Endgame Builds??

The leader of the Solo GR leaderboard proves otherwise though ;)

Is there a peak to the solo channeling build? I am stuck at around GR 70 solo sad.png

Likely around 90? If you provide me with a link to your character, I can take a look and provide more specific advice. :)

is My build at the moment, doing 65 rifts alone. Doing 74 with another dmo  wizard. I need the ranslor to get density cause we play on ps4. I like the solo version of this because it looks lot like my build, would this solo build outperform mine? I do die easy atm, and I do need the wicked rune because, console! :) dmo set or tal rasha with a channeling build? What would be preferred?

Hey - you seem to have linked me a Firebird's build though? At the moment, DMO and Tal Rasha would both do better at an Energy Twister build, with DMO being the easier set to control in my opinion. I got a little confused by your 'channeling build' comment though - are you trying to build around Energy Twister, or a channeled skill (i.e. Disintegrate, Ray of Frost, etc)?

      Rainbow Portrait is coming to consoles with the patch that brings Seasons, The rest blue posts deal with The Barber, Juggernaut affix and the duration of the Darkening of Tristam event.
      Rainbow Portrait on Consoles
      The rainbow portrait isn't currently available on consoles. The implementation of portraits will come with the patch that brings Seasons to consoles (Season 10 maybe). Until then, you can earn portraits through the Darkening of Tristam event.
      Nevalistis
      So, with the 1.15/1.16 patch, will this portrait drop now on the consoles?
      Sorry for the delay in response, but I had to do some digging on this one. On console, Sir William does not currently drop the Whimsyshire portrait. The reason why is because full portrait integration isn't actually active yet for the Ultimate Evil Edition on PS4/XB1, though a couple of portraits can be earned through the Darkening of Tristram event (see here for more information on that). Full integration will be coming with the patch where Seasons become available on console.

      If this is something you guys would like to see in the future once portrait integration is in, I'll be happy to pass along that feedback to our console development team!

      The Darkening of Tristam Event Duration
      Another posts informs that the Darkening of Tristam event will last until the end of January and will return every January from here on out.

      When does the Darkening of Tristram event end?
      Just to confirm, The Darkening of Tristram event will last until the end of this month (January), and will return every January from here on out.

      The Barber Nerfs
      A player has submitted photographic evidence that The Barber has been nerfed. Here's a blue post related to it.
      Tyvalir
      I'm using it with a build I'm working on and I like it even though it's not doing insane amounts of godly damage like on the ptr.
      Glad you're liking the revamped Barber! As more people play with this item, there will doubtless be interesting new builds they create that are worth trying out.

      It's also worth noting that with the changes to certain items in patch 2.4.3, we've seen players talk about how these compare to the most powerful Legendary and Set items available in the game. 

      To clarify, our goal when updating Legendary items is to open up new build opportunities for players to explore. Along with this, it's important to note that not every item is designed to push the current best Greater Rift level. Some will be better for speed farming builds, and others will simply be a means to create fun novelty builds (like Manajuma's Way, for instance).

      There's more than one way to compare an item's relative worth, and more than one way to incorporate it into various builds. Even so, I'm glad to see people trying the new items out and sharing their experiences. It helps, for sure!
      Is it really not guaranteed elemental damage though?
      As for the weapon not rolling the additional damage modifier, that does seem buggy - I will pass this on, and thanks for reporting it!

      Juggernauts in Greater Rifts
      They now have lots of health and resistance to damage, intended? The information below was taken from the latest patch notes.
      2.4.3 Patch Notes - Juggernaut
      Juggernaut New enemy affix Juggernaut monsters are permanently immune to crowd control effects, but move more slowly than normal monsters Along with this change, enemies with this affix take 30% more damage from all sources Only a rare Elite enemy can be a Juggernaut (Source)
      There may even be a visual indicator for affixes on elites in the works!
      Tyvalir
      OK I got it - immunity to cc means a whole bunch of procs that raise damage or debuff won't work.
      Just wanted to clarify for those who haven't seen the new Juggernaut affix in-game or read our recent patch notes that this is correct. As with all enemy affixes, some will be easier for certain builds to handle while the inverse is true for others. 

      One of our goals when adding new enemy affixes is to broaden the types of enemy variety you see in the game and the kinds of challenges you'll face. This helps achieve both of those goals while (hopefully) encouraging you to think more tactically in certain cases as a CC-dependent character.
      Damn! Will have to actually look at affixes now - it would be nice to have a visual indicator on the elite.
      Totally fair feedback! I'm happy to pass this on and thanks for sharing it.
