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.

guest_Cq are you missing goldwrap? that was my problem with the same issue

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?

      Necromancer Beta was updated with Patch v2.6.0.45634. Not so many changes are in this time. Blizzard reduced the likelihood of dead ends in Rifts & Greater Rifts floors using the Temple of the Firstborn map.
      Temple of the Firstborn Rift adjustments and various bug fixes.
      NOTE: Red text indicates a change between the last and live patch notes.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Please note that participation in the Necromancer beta test will be by invitation to ensure focused feedback and a smooth testing experience. For details on how to participate, please see this blog.
      Installation and Play Instructions:
      To install and play the Necromancer beta test, please follow the instructions below:
      Step 1: If you were invited to the beta test, verify that your account has been granted a beta license in Blizzard Account Management.
      Step 2: Download and install the Blizzard launcher.
      Step 3: Once you have installed the Blizzard launcher, log in with your credentials and select Diablo III from the menu on the left-hand side.
      Step 4: On the Diablo III screen, there is a drop-down menu above the "Play" button (note that this may say "Install" if you do not have Diablo III currently installed). Select " Necromancer Beta Test" from this drop-down menu before proceeding.
      Step 5: You should now have the option to install and play the beta.
      Beta Character Copy:
      The option to copy your existing Diablo III characters from your live account to the beta will be available and can be done directly through the beta client.
      Step 1: Log into the beta client and create a level 1 character. After you're done, return to the main character screen.
      Step 2: Note the “PTR Copy” button at the top right of the Home Screen. (This button will not appear in-game until you have created a new level 1 character.)
      Step 3: Select your region.
      Step 4: Click "Copy." This will copy all characters on your account from the selected region.
      Step 5: You may be disconnected from the beta client.
      Step 6: 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 beta characters will be lost.
      In addition, you can only copy characters over to your beta account once every 24 hours. Attempting to copy characters before this cooldown is up will result in an error.
      PTR PATCH 2.6.0 - v2.6.0.45634
      Below you'll find the preliminary notes for Patch 2.6.0, including the Necromancer beta. Please note that this isn't the final version and that some changes may not be documented or described in full detail.
      Please note that content availability during the beta will vary depending on testing needs.

      Welcome Vesalius, the first new Rift Boss in a long time! While it seemed he was entirely unique at first, it later turned out, as most Rift Bosses, that he was based off an Adventure Mode boss (Vidian from the Sanctum of Blood, a new area). Both bosses are giant Enslaved Nightmares, new models coming with the Necromancer pack and showing up now on the beta, so we can hope there will be even more new additions once it goes live.

      Streamer Zhanji first ran into the boss and his Necromancer's first encounter with Vesalius didn't go that great, considering the Frozen Pulse, Wormhole and Glowy Balls. So, let's take a look:
