Allrighty folks - a little background info about my approach to this build.
I play semi-casual. Sometimes not at all - sometimes 1-3 hours a day. Before trying this build I had no ascensions on my wizard, I'm now finishing off my 4th.
I saw this build by Griffin and decided to give it a spin. I liked the idea of being able to jasper the build to other classes, as I'm looking to ascend my other two characters at some point also.
The build, as it is right now, has subbed defiant for momentum, as I haven't been able to reach Griffins original build competely.
I'm putting my points in the health stat only. Also I switched some stuff up, as my items rolled other stats than the recommended, which seemed to work:)
I felt that I needed the 10k HP epic affix, as survivability was kinda 'meh' initially. I were low on rubies and RNG LUCK, when trying to make this build, so I ended up with ignore resist, explosive, 10K hp, and crushing blow, instead of 1 x deadly strike (crystal affix), 2 x +% Poison DMG % (legend affix), and +% Move Speed.
I'm pretty sure I'm leaving it at that, as the dmg in the build seems fine for grinding lvl 180-240ish with no problems, and that's all I need for exp farm.
I'll explain a choice I made below (if you can still bother reading)
I started out using this orb offhand for the build hoping Insolence offhand would drop along the way:
Eventually I gave up, and looked at 'Hellfire' instead.
It gives me the on screen dps numbers 4,29M on orb, as you can see above, which is offcourse lower than the 4,40 from the orb, but the added blight makes a HUGE impact on how fast you clear everything. My clear speed has just increased 10-folds after that extra blight has been added. Based on that experience I'm presuming that the extra +%Poison DMG% I'm missing would do me a lot of good in the build aswell, but crushing blow and ignore resist is doing the trick for me as it is.
Also managed to attack 'Vampiric' set-affix to Hellfire - which gave me a huge HP boost.
Lets give this the TLDR treatment, as it is a long post:
- GIving up on 'Insolence' offhand - I recommend 'Hellfire' instead - drops loads of times.
- I want an easy way of grinding exp towards eternal ascend - should I try this build? = HELL YEAH.
Not gonna lie, I'm sure it'll still feel like a hell of a grind, but it is SO much faster this way:)
Thnx for yet another tool in the box @Griffin
