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 Archon. You will be striving to maximize its uptime and damage potential through various gear and skill choices. To summarize the Archon 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 Manald Heal interaction with the Archon channeled beam for damage. Abuse your free Teleport Teleport to reposition or find new engagements.

In your normal Wizard form, you will be replacing the leveling Disintegrate Disintegrate for Arcane Torrent Arcane Torrent Static Discharge Static Discharge spamming, since the latter will reset your Archon Archon via its interaction with a cubed Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac — a vital legendary for the build. You will reposition with Teleport Teleport, using Wormhole Wormhole when you overpower the difficulty or Safe Passage Safe Passage when lacking Toughness. You can keep damage buffing skills like Magic Weapon Magic Weapon Force Weapon Force Weapon, Familiar Familiar Sparkflint Sparkflint and Storm Armor Storm Armor Scramble Scramble from the fresh 70 build, but remember to swap them out for Magic Weapon Magic Weapon Deflection Deflection, Slow Time Slow Time Stretch Time Stretch Time and Energy Armor Energy Armor Force 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 Illusionist and the ranged damage buff of Power Hungry Power Hungry, but you will also emphasize on your cooldown needs with Evocation Evocation and lean into your Manald Heal Manald Heal procs with Paralysis Paralysis.
