If you wanna play wizard, my friend... There are several Wiz builds on the forums... but even tho you do NOT want to hear this... From a guy who has been playing this game for a long while now... (over a year) PLEASE FIGURE OUT WHAT YOU ENJOY MOST. Lol I hate to be the guy that says "Play the game the way you have fun" after you strictly told me not to lol, but Honestly, I have a high damage reactor build going with crystal affixes for deadly strike and the brutal mythic. I wont let go of my Orb offhand because I like to teleport... these are things that may not be "optimal", but I have a blast.
What Im saying is, you will, in my opinion; be in favor of non-optimal gear because of aesthetics, affixes, or skills. Let your guard down, enjoy the game. Figure out what works the best for you, then try and find a similar optimized build when you move on to quad/quin ascention PvP.
I'm really glad you picked up the game! Hope we can square off one day!
