Introduction

Empowered by a vast array of supporting items, Energy Twister offers an unconventional, but mighty Wizard playstyle. Using the powers of Delsere's Magnum Opus set, this build manipulates the powers of time to its own needs, while forming tornados of horrifying destruction. This sustain damage, control-heavy spec is strictly oriented at Greater Rift progression.
