Wizard Vyr's Amazing Arcana Fresh 70 Starter Build (Patch 2.7.1 / Season 24)
This build is a starter build for fresh Level 70 Wizards who have access to the Vyr's Amazing Arcana set.
This guide is part of our Wizard Seasonal Progress Guide, which also includes a leveling build and other early builds for fresh 70 characters.

How to Play the Build: Skills and Rotation
On the surface, the Vyr starter build shares many skills with the leveling and fresh 70 build, but keep in mind the alternate form and namesake of the build — Archon. You will be striving to maximize its uptime and damage potential through various gear and skill choices. To summarize the Archon form playstyle, alternate between Arcane Strike versus melee and Disintegration Wave versus ranged, but favor ranged engagements due to your dependence on the Manald Heal interaction with the Archon channeled beam for damage. Abuse your free Teleport to reposition or find new engagements.
In your normal Wizard form, you will be replacing the leveling Disintegrate for Arcane Torrent Static Discharge spamming, since the latter will reset your Archon via its interaction with a cubed Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac — a vital legendary for the build. You will reposition with Teleport, using Wormhole when you overpower the difficulty or Safe Passage when lacking Toughness. You can keep damage buffing skills like Magic Weapon Force Weapon, Familiar Sparkflint and Storm Armor Scramble from the fresh 70 build, but remember to swap them out for Magic Weapon Deflection, Slow Time Stretch Time and Energy Armor Force Armor respectively if you push into GRs. Passives will differ somewhat from the leveling build — you will keep the immense utility of Illusionist and the ranged damage buff of Power Hungry, but you will also emphasize on your cooldown needs with Evocation and lean into your Manald Heal procs with Paralysis.
