Advice for Wizard Build

I tried to copy a build from someone to helped me get gear in the beginning and then verged it in a different way. This build isn't complete and I'm still looking for Obsidian Ring.

Right now I've tried up to T8 and one shot everything.

My first piece of advice would be to check out the guide and take the time to read it.

Some comments to your current setup would be:

You need Lightning % on your bracers (or amulet), because you want your ArchonArchon to deal Lightning Damage, without having to use the Pure PowerPure Power. Then you can use the CombustionCombustion so that you can get 4 stacks of Tal'Rasha buff when entering Archon.

The Spectral BladeSpectral Blade skill does not work with Obsidian Ring of the ZodiacObsidian Ring of the Zodiac as you need a spender for that to proc, so I suggest you either use Arcane TorrentArcane Torrent or Ray of FrostRay of Frost.

Wreath of LightningWreath of Lightning is also not ideal for this build, since most of the time you spend teleporting rather than running, so the benefit from the speed buff is not that great.

You also want to find a good Ancient weapon between In-geomIn-geom or StarfireStarfire and cube the other one. Definitely focus your efforts on this, as an Ancient weapon is the biggest upgrade you can get.

      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.
