Wizard Firebird Explosive Blast

Recommended Posts

Guest Reaper

Almost perfect guide as far as GR pushing is concerned, only thing missing is that there is no mention of Sliver of Terror (ring of fire version), which seems to be superior to the Shard of Hatred once you get high enough. The build is relatively simple to gear for and easier to play compared to the other competitive Wizard builds, so I can definitely recommend it. The farming variants are fairly effective as well.

FYI, the "when you kill an enemy, you deal damage done by the death blow to all enemies within 25 yards" of the "Essence of Anguish" gem is considered poison and will proc the stacking baseline poison proc.

This allows you to go for lightning damage on your weapon and get all the damage type benefits while still being able to proc the gem stacking buff.

Guest Wand of Woh?

Just curious if Wand of Woh is at all desirable for this build. Being the majority of damage comes from explosive blast with the 6 piece debuff, wouldn't hyper charging the blast be more effective than having more CDR from in-geom? Cool downs are already really low with Zodiac.

I'd try it out but I just started the season and don't have any of the aforementioned gear. ¯\\\_(ツ)\_/¯

"...the ceaseless detonations of this skill into a fiery source of burning destruction."   Shakespeare?

I love the old "Wand Of Woh-Dood" Build!  Lots of fun.  So, this one is a lot better?

Have you messed with this build yet?

I played around with this build.  Kinda fun, but I must be doing something wrong.  It sure doesn’t seem Godly at all.

Considering this is one of the strongest builds in quite a few game modes....Yes, you probably are doing something wrong - or your playing style simply doesn't mesh with the build (I mainly play WD and necro and there are some builds that I just don't use because, well, they're not how I like to play). But if you want any poiinters or assistance in how to make your build better, you're going to have to give some more info.

Do you have ALL necessary items? Do they have the right rolls? Are you using all the same runes? Most builds can definitely be varied from quite a bit (the builds as presented on IV tend to be for the absolute endgame, sacrificing survivability for raw damage - it is assumed you can compensate with Paragon levels). 

Post a link to your build, or list what you do/don't have, and someone experienced might be able to pinpoint a weakness or problem you have.

I’m doing ok with build now.  It’s much easier to play on a PS4 than on my Computer.  Assigning which Powers to which Keys on the Computer is odd.  Using the Left Button on the mouse to Move and to Red Beam everyone is especially odd and makes it hard to get around.

I've heard others say pretty much the same. Personally I can't use a controller to save my life, but if it works better for you, so much for the better! Glad to hear you're having more success now.

It’s all about muscle memory.  I hadn’t played on my computer for a long time, and when I just picked-up a Mac Studio, I loaded-up D3 on my new 32” to check it out.  It took a little while to figure out the mouse again but it’s fun now… but still a little strange.
