Arcane Torrent Runed Videos


Fancy a little something for the weekend? Of course you do. We have three videos today featuring the DiabloWikiWizard‘s DiabloWikiArcane Torrent runed up to its eyeballs. Only three of the five DiabloWikirunestones are demoed as Alabaster and Obsidian Runes produce no visual differences.  These are all spoilers.

This first one is very pretty. It’s a Crimson Rune which makes Arcane Torrent into Disruption which disrupts targets causing them to take extra damage.

The others are after the jump.

A Golden rune will change the skill into Power Stone. The now lush raspberry coloured torrents have a 5% change to leave behind a Power Stone which will grant your Wizard Arcane Power when picked up.

The final rune we see demoed is Indigo changing the skill into Cascade so that targets killed will have an 80% chance of firing a missile at a nearby enemy.

  1. I appreciate your posting these though it’s too bad the obsidian rune effect didn’t work out… would’ve loved to see the Arcane Mines in action!

  2. I’m planning to build a pure arcane wizard and was definitely going to include disruption for the increased damage to all my skills.  It’s cool to finally see it in action.  I can’t wait to pepper the ranks of my foes with this skill and then toss in some crimson runed arcane orbs while they’re disrupted for total annihilation! 😈

    • a thought:
      30 % of people will play wiz as main class (accrding to some statistic i saw here moths ago) => wiz gear will be 2x more expensive than other classes gear
      thats why i wont go wiz

      • I wont go Wiz, on release, couse Monk pwns everything else, doesnt matter how much gear costs, its all about being badass ;]

  3. So golden turns it red, but crimson pretty much leaves it looking the same… weird… These rune effects that just change the skills color are disappointing, but I guess if having them have mostly bland differences is what it takes to get the game out sooner then so be it…

    • They change the shape slightly as well as the color. Crimson makes the missiles and explosions bigger, golden makes it look more like ribbons, and indigo makes them appear more cone shaped. I’m sure we’ll see more shape variation with other runes that change the way the skill works rather than just the effect it causes, like obsidian for arcane mines.
      I agree it’s weird that the golden rune turns the skill red but the crimson rune doesn’t.  I guess the rune’s names aren’t tied to their appearances, just general effect themes. i.e. crimson is usually the highest damage, golden usually makes the skill more resource friendly or reduces the cool down, etc.

      • Yeah just thought it was weird since so many other class skills become redish or get fire damage when crimson runed… Now that you mention it, the crimson missles do look a tiny bit bigger and the golden ones are definitely a different shape… I don’t think I would say that the indigo ones are more cone-shaped than crimson though…

    • The sounds often change, too. It may not be as pronounced in a video as it is in-game, but I’m a bit of a sound guy and I appreciate the differences.

  4. its look very good but i cant wait anymore!!

  5. its look very good but i cant wait any longer!

    Indeed selling Wizard gear you find is going to be worth it? or wait wasn’t almost every weapon equally great for any class? hmm… well there is still armor but I don’t really think it’s a valid reason to  not play wizard, mostly because it’s truly a lot more fun finding the items rather than buying/selling them. But if you don’t really care about what class you play I guess that’s fine, for you  😀

  7. Wait, they accelerate the further they go out? So travel time is the same no matter how far you shoot?

  8. How shiny, isn’t it?

  9. The more I see these things the more in love I fall with the new rune system.

  10. Meh…
    Arkane torrent was much better in the wiz announcment video, check it out:

  11. What the hell happened to the Arcane Torrent in the wizard reveal trailer? It was by far the coolest looking wizard spell, now replaced with this unexciting shower of blobs? Someone said the spell in question was runed meteor, but it certainly doesn’t seem so from the meteor preview…
