[Wizard] Lightning Torrent Build

1 post in this topic

Here is my current wizard build that I'm using at Level 70 Torment 1-3:

D3 Skill Calculator

 

The build mainly focuses around wizard_passive_paralysis.pngParalysis by using wizard_arcanetorrent.pngArcane Torrent that has been modified to do lightning damage. This build works greatly against groups of enemies, but the stun also makes you strong at soloing bosses. e.pngWormhole wizard_teleport.pngTeleport and wizard_passive_illusionist.pngIllusionist reduces your travel time, and also gives you an escape when fighting Wallers, Vortex or Jailers.

You mostly spam Arcane Torrent, and use x1_wizard_wormhole.pngBlack Hole when you want to stack the enemies, or just for the damage bonus the Spellsteal rune provides.

You have 3 almost passive spells (Armor, Weapon and Familiar) that you only have to cast when once every 10 minutes, or after you revived.

 

Gear:

You will require gear that increases Critical Hit Chance and "Critical Hits grant x Arcane Power". Reason being that Critical hits will trigger your armor's effect, and also grant you more Arcane Power to spam Arcane Torrent.

Other beneficial gear bonuses are the Lightning/Critical Hit Damage/Arcane Torrent damage increases.

 

Paragon Points:

You only need to take Critical Hit Chance (offense) and Area Damage (Utility). You can spend the Core and Defense points as you like. I however like taking Movement Speed (Core) and All Resist (Defense).

 

Other:

You can change your Familiar's Rune to Icicle when fighting Bosses, or to Arcanot if you are struggling with Arcane Power.
