It would be more effectiv if you get a Tal Rasha off-hand and replace the ring for set require reduction with the elemental ring. The off-hand gives you more meteor dmg. And the ring (used in the cube only as passive) goes up to 200% more dmg for each element it rolls. If you put as fire dmg desintegration with more width and get on some items % fire dmg and on top roll on the ring fire dmg... then you can crit sometimes 1-2.000.000.000 with low quality items ;).
You need to build up the 4 charges (first ice, arcane, lightning and then use fire with desintegration to build up an distructiv combo) the desintegration kills all small stuff and the meteor crashes your blue, purple, yellow enemys with a loud bang.

Pls excuse my bad english i am used to not speak it very often.

you missed the offhand in the guide but noted that you use tal's offhand in the starting passage.

 

if that is so - what is the point in using rorg in kunai?

If Cindercoat is cubed, what do you wear for a chest piece?

 

Or does the cubed Cindercoat + equipped Cindercoat stack?

 

They do not, so please forgive the temporary state of the section in the build. :) It will be fixed shortly to accommodate the new Tal Rasha meta that mixes it with the Delsere set.

I'm guessing you use Royal Ring of Grandeur & Cindercoat powers, which could let you run 6-set Tal Rasha + 4-set Delsere together.

I really like this build, although its hard as hell to teleport on the console version (where I have been playing), as you cant "point" where the teleport lands, just the direction, as the distance is fixed.

 

Anyway, any chance we get to see an upgraded version of this build? 

 

Thanks in advance, great job.

We might see a revision of the either the Tal Rasha set or the complementary items for the build in patch 2.4 (out in a few weeks), which makes me hopeful! :)

It's labeled Aether Walker Build, but it doesn't appear to use the Aether Walker.

I noticed that right away too. Because of the build name, I felt obligated to use AW to teleport around. It worked great.

Your info about the Sage variation is slightly off. You don't HAVE to use the Tal Rasha belt and drop Goldwrap/Hoarder combo for it. There's two options:

1) The one you outlined: pick up Tal Rasha belt and drop Goldwrap/Hoarder, use Orb of Infinite Depth for the offhand (+20% dmg/60% dmg reduction pseudo perma since the whole build is about EB), and use any shoulders mentioned.

2) Pick up Tal Rasha off-hand for the lacking piece instead. You do lose 20% damage (since Firebird's offhand has 20% fire dmg prerolled), but you get to keep your immortality via Goldwrap/Hoarder.

 

I absolutely prefer option 1 and that's the one you have in the guide, don't get me wrong, not advertising a worse build here. But your clear speed with this build won't be affected much at all by a single 20% modifier, and the option to keep Goldwrap/Hoarder is there, so saying it's not is just wrong.

Hey Deadset,

great build. Put it together today after my Desintegrate build got boring. Works like a charm!

Any tips on how to modify this build for speed GR?
Or is it not viable? If not, what Wiz build do you recommend for speed GRs?

Cheers

I'm using the Sage's version of this build and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong but I'm just getting destroyed at T10.  Trash is smoking me and I have full ancients on all Tal's pieces and 1 of the sages.

Yes I am not using goldwrap because I am using the sage's set and have to use the tal's belt to get the 6 piece bonus.  I've sort of built my own version of this that isn't built specifically for speed but to farm DB's exclusively. Still die but not so much as before.

 

Other issue is I think Tal Rasha has a way way steeper learning curve than the other wizard sets.  Still getting used to the play style but it's certainly fun.

You are absolutely correct, I will revise the build to include the option of keeping the Goldwrap.

I love this build. I started using it yesterday. Every once in awhile I end up with explosive blasts going off like a super fast machine gun. How am I doing that? That has to be some order of attacks that is achieving that effect. Do y'all know?

      Blizzard is currently working on some behind-the-scenes updates for Diablo 3. While there is no new content on this PTR, there's a fair amount of risk to deploy them to live servers without testing. The chance to find Legendary items has been increased by 2,000% for testing purposes on the PTR.

      We are working on some behind-the-scenes updates. Since some of these involve a fair amount of risk, we need your help testing them before we deploy them to the live servers!
      Join us starting today, January 16, for a special PTR that includes these updates. Along with this, we are looking for reports of issues that occur when players attempt to start or join a multiplayer game, or communicate with other players through in-game chat.
      We encourage players of all types to participate, so what are you waiting for? Download that PTR and hop right in!
      A few important notes:
      There is no new content included on this PTR. While you will be able to copy your existing characters, we will also be activating the 2000% Legendary Find buff to encourage participation. As a reminder, any progress made on the PTR does not transfer over to your live account. Since this PTR is exclusively focused on identifying and fixing bugs related to the issues noted above, we will only be opening the Bug Report forum during the testing period. Over the course of the PTR, server performance may vary. This PTR will only be available for a limited time, and we’d greatly appreciate all the help we can get in testing it quickly and with as many participants as possible! We hope you have some time to help us out. If you need more information on how to participate on the PTR, visit our FAQ or see below for details.
      How to Participate PTR Character Copy Thank you, nephalem, and we’ll see you in Sanctuary!
      HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
      To participate in the public test, you must have a Diablo III game license attached your Battle.net account in good standing (i.e. it hasn't been suspended or banned). In addition, you will also need to download and install the Battle.net desktop app if you have not already done so.
      Step 1: Create a PTR account. To create a PTR account, log in to Battle.net Account Management and double-click on your Diablo III game license; this will bring you to the game management page. On this page, click "Create a PTR account." 
      If you've participated in any previous Diablo III PTR (including the Reaper of Souls beta), the "Create PTR account" button may not appear. This is because you've already created a PTR account and can therefore skip this step.
      Step 2: Once you have created a PTR account, installed the Battle.net desktop, and logged in with your Battle.net credentials, select "Diablo III" from the main menu on the left-hand side of the application.
      Step 3: On the Diablo III screen, there is a drop-down menu right above the "Play" button (note that this may say "Install" if you do not have Diablo III currently installed). Select "PTR: Diablo III" from this drop-down menu before proceeding.
      Step 4: You should now have the option to install and play the PTR.
      The PTR is available in all supported languages, and accounts from all regions are eligible to participate.
      PTR CHARACTER COPY:
      The option to copy your existing Diablo III characters from your live account to the PTR will be available and can be done directly through the PTR client. However, only one region per account can be copied at a time. So, if you choose to copy characters from your account in a different region, any previously copied PTR characters will be lost.
      Step 1: Log into the live game and then log out.
      Step 2: Log into PTR client and create a level 1 character. After you're done, return to the main character screen.
      Step 3: Click on the "PTR Copy" button located in the upper right-hand corner. (The PTR Copy button will not appear in-game until you have created a new level 1 character.)
      Step 4: Select your region.
      Step 5: Click "Copy." This will copy all characters on your account from the selected region.
      Step 6: You will be disconnected from the PTR client.
      Step 7: Log back in. Your copied characters will be available for play.
      Please note that you can only copy characters from one gameplay region at a time. If you choose to copy characters from a different region, any previously copied PTR characters will be lost. In addition, you can only copy characters over to your PTR account once every 24 hours. Attempting to copy characters before this cooldown is up will result in an error.
      As this is a test server, please anticipate uneven game performance, and note that restarts and downtime may occur without warning.

      Hi all!
      New set item is better than the old one or the item's sinergy don't work well with the old set items? I know, my question is strange, but what is the common opinion? I know all the patch notes have info for set item changes, old ones have the new set stats, all set item is up-to-date in normal.
      But my Akkhan Crusader build is not working well. I have a new  Frydehr's Wrath & Blade of Prophecy . I have 1892paragon, have a good gear, good stats, right skills+passives, high leg.gems, cube is ok, caldesans etc. My dps is almost 4mill, but the solo 104 is my maximum (in a very good gr map).
      New ones is better like old ones? This is possible? Anyone in same feeling?

      An exploit involving the Legendary item Bone Ringer was recently discovered and as a result, Blizzard has temporarily disabled its Legendary power until a hotfix goes live and corrects the issue.

      Hey all,

      We recently investigated reports of an issue involving Bone Ringer. As a result, we will be temporarily disabling the item’s Legendary power until a hotfix can be prepared to correct the issue. We will update this thread once the hotfix is live.

      Special thanks to the players who reported this, and to everyone for their patience as we work on a fix.
