Wizard: Wand of Woh Build

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?

      Challenge Rifts are a different beast to master as opposed to Greater Rifts. Joe Shely talks more about how to keep the experience fresh and discusses Rift fishing.
      The main goal of changes to Greater Rifts was to reduce variation while keeping the play experience different at the same time.
      Blizzard Entertainment (Source)
      Hi all, Joe Shely here.
      I’d like to talk about our philosophy for the design changes we make that affect Greater Rifts and how we think about Rift “fishing.”
      When you are pushing Greater Rifts (either to improve your highest Greater Rift rank or to increase your maximum Legendary Gem rank), you start to encounter situations where you’re selecting a Rift that you may not be able to complete.
      Whether you can complete that Rift or not depends on three factors:
      Your character’s overall power, including how much main stat you have, your Critical Strike chance, etc. This is the largest factor and comes primarily from your gear. How well you execute your character’s build. For example, maximizing Focus and Restraint uptime, getting the most value out of each Convention of the Elements cycle, and so on. How well you adapt to the various challenges the dungeon throws at you. These include things like dungeon layout, number of branching paths, room size, enemy population type, and which Rift boss you encounter. In other words, Greater Rifts require some combination of three things: Power, Execution, and Adaptability.

      If we wanted to, we could make every Rift roll the same tile-set, layout, population, and boss. That would put all of the focus on execution. This can be fun in short bursts, and in fact Challenge Rifts do exactly this at a fixed power level. Each time a new Challenge Rift is introduced you’ll be presented with a new character and build to try. We plan to introduce new Challenge Rifts frequently to keep the experience fresh.
      Greater Rifts are a different beast.
      You spend a lot of time with the same character. That character’s power level doesn’t change very fast, especially in the late game when you’re running with a complete set of well-rolled items. And your execution—the buttons you’re pressing—doesn’t change very often. You improve over time and might try a new build, but overall this value is fairly static…so we need to look elsewhere to keep Greater Rifts fun to play again and again.
      This is where adaptability comes in. We design monsters, Rift Guardians, affixes, and dungeon layouts that throw a wide variety of challenges at you—within reason.
      Your experience should vary from one Rift to the next, but if it varies too much, it feels like whether you can complete a Rift is entirely out of your control. Our target with Rift changes has been to reduce that variation while keeping the play experience different from Rift to Rift.

      If you step into a Rift and see that the first floor is a cave, or the first population has a lot of Writhing Deceivers and you instantly know that Rift will be impossible to complete, then the cave tile-set or the monster probably needs tweaking.
      Along these lines, we reduced the average size of a Rift floor in Patch 2.4.3 to increase the number of floors you see in a given Rift, placing less emphasis on the tile-set or population of a given floor. We also made improvements where a specific monster or tile-set was out of line, like fixing big empty areas in the Heaven tile-set or making Writhing Deceivers emerge more quickly from hiding.
      Now, when you’re pushing the absolute limit of your character’s power and execution, there will inevitably come a point where you can only succeed if you get that perfect Rift. That’s a reality we aren’t trying to circumvent. But by setting the right balance between character power, execution, and adaptability in Greater Rifts, we can broadly improve the experience and raise the threshold at which everything has to go perfectly.
