"Your armor and weapon sockets should be taken up by the highest tier Topaz gems you can afford at the time"

 

Dont use Topaz in weapons please, Emeralds belong there.

 

I guess you know that but only forgot to mention :)

Hello,

what do you think of a maximus as weapon?

I just got one and i find it pretty efficient

 

The Maximus is a very decent starter weapon indeed, an excellent transition tool into the endgame wands. :)

I'd say yes, but you can circumvent starting builds almost entirely since you get a free set from the Seasonal journey! :) Assuming you're starting fresh, of course.

I got an etched sigil, works really good with this build, however, i am 50/50 with swapping the teleport out for a apocolypse blizzard, have tried both, and each has its merits.  the etched sigil spams blizzard while using disintegrate for a lot of constant wide-area damage, plus occasional black holes (gives you a separate black hole on an invisible timer, basically allowing you to cast 2 black holes in quick succession), but you lose maneuverability . . .

just tried out this build, fond it works rather well.  however, after i got a etched sigil, i have been on the fence between the teleport/calamity and blizzard/armageddon.  I use the disintegrate, which causes black hole to cast (on a separate, invisible timer, allowing you to still cast your own black holes), but with both blizz-geddon and black holes, you get constant area spam from blizz and intermittent black holes thrown in.  also helps that i have enough reduction that it costs almost nothing to stand still and spam disintegrate until the cows come home.  just wondering what you think of my alteration (with my lucky legendary) . . .

Etched Sigil is a great offhand to get early on! Your modification sounds spot on, you can easily move on to set builds from where you are.

Hello. I'm sure this is a very noobish question (just started D3 a week or so ago). When you say " a cubed Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac " what exactly do you mean? I've unlocked the kanai's cube and I see Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac under the rings (it's currently greyed out) but I am unsure of how to actually craft one? Am I missing something?

Thank you for the help!! (PS. I'm trying to finish the set before the season ends!)

I've previously played Diablo 3 on the PS3 on have decided to buy the PC version to give seasons a try and play the D1 event and forthcoming Necro.

Do I need to run through the whole of story mode before I can participate in seasons/the event and use adventure mode?

Yes, I believe you need to clear the story to play Adventure mode.

It means you've extracted the legendary power of the obsidian ring of the zodiac (which is a random legendary drop) and have equipped it in the kanai cube like you mentioned.

What a pain! Thanks for answering.

It can be a fun little way to start the season! It's a bit slower, but can be more enjoyable than mindlessly levelling through rifts.

Tagging you to check the response from Wedge:

You need to enable "selective mode" in the game settings.

Then you can use several skills from one tree

Good luck!

I didn't have to play through. I think they must've changed it in the latest patch.

Interesting! Thanks for coming back to leave a note of that, I'm sure it will help those that might be looking for an answer! :D

Is the Chantodo's Resolve set considered endgame?  I'm nowhere near endgame, I can barely do T3 without getting in trouble, but I'd like to plan ahead. 

I know this is a lot to ask, but could someone take a look at my Wiz and see what I'm doing right and wrong with her as far as equipment, stats, etc.  http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Ocotillo-1142/hero/64071694

The archon buildcwith Chantodo's seems to be the go to for end game yes. I've tried experimenting a lot with other builds the last few days for T10+ and haven't found anything that doesn't have a hard time in those difficulties.

I started the season on my wizard so the full firebird set from your chapter completion is very strong using a disintegrate build based around its 6 piece set bonus.  I can easily clear T9 and T10 depends on the map as some enemies can be very deadly. 

Another build that can easily breeze through anything T10 and below is an explosive blast build with the Tal Rasha set. This build is much more survivable then the previous build and does much more consistent damage, as the build I listed above has a much harder time dealing with non elite mobs so you should just avoid them and hunt for elites. This build however feeds off non elite mobs as you will be utilizing the Gold Wrap belt and therefore killing and looting gold before engage an elite will pretty much make you invincible. This build however is not as good in greater rifts as disintegrate because of this fact since gold does not drop in there.

The archon build you are going for is for T10+ and high lvl Grifts, anything under that and up to Grift 50 you should use one of the above builds.

here is my current wizards link for example http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/mraist-1883/hero/83593304

      Hey everyone,
      My name is Jayne and I'm returning to D3 after a very long break from the game and I'm looking for a clan that actively runs group GRs and speedfarms to push for ranking. Currently I'm mid 500s paragon in S11 Softcore, and my current characters are as follows:
      Tayai - Barbarian, zBarb and Whirlwind Wastes/Leapquake for Bounties and solo play
      Tayness - Wizard, newest character, looking to get geared for Lightning Wiz
      Alviona - Necro, Rathmas + Jesseth's/Inarius/zNecro
      I pride myself on being flexible for all groups, and am more than willing to switch to any character that is needed for the group (Don't have a monk yet but I could easily level and gear one if needed as well.)
      I'm coming back to D3 after a stint in WoW with mythic raiding experience and a couple rank 1 logs for both Warrior and Rsham, so I'm experienced in high PVE gameplay and group play. I don't stand for toxicity in any group whatsoever. If your clan is recruiting at all and you think I might be a fit, please hit me up on Battle.net, my btag is JayneReveck#1990.
