I'd like to start by saying that I don't like the gimmicky nature of the frost nova+cm combo most wiz use now. This setup actually function better is mobs move a little will help get them where you want them. I was comfortable in mp8 and often got 900k crits with 150kdps unbuffed dps and ~250% chd. My profile I don't always use this skill set so my stats do change. The concept is to use slow time and wave of force to keep enemies where you want them for meteor while limiting time in melee range. Slow time with extra damage works very will in combination with My skill choices and why. -Meteor-Comet It's cold damage plus it's wake make it really effective in bubble in solo play. - -Slow Time Time Warp- I prefer 20% damage because this makes life steal more effective with meteor which is the highest %damage spell. Also use this if your dps is low. Stretch time-Standard CM wiz will love this one especially if it help with a break point. -Teleport: Calamity I use this for it's wave of force and with added mobility which helps puts them where you want them. If you aren't using cm try Wave of Force: Forced Infinity to reduce cooldown on your knock back. -Could really use any tele rune. I personally feel tele is broken due to the fact you can only effectively use it in combo with CM and a good Occy. -Shock Pulse-Living Lightning good freebie spell to get ap and proc cm if you use that. Think of this spell like a free version of ET -Magic Weapon-Blood Magic for extra dps and some life steal that works well with comet. -Energy Armor-Force Armor Since I occasionally getting in mobs' faces is helpful to prevent the 1 hits that can happen in high mp. If you want to do low mp Lightning: Scramble is a better choice. -Passives(these are flexible) -Critical Mass(more frequent bubbles and wof/tele) -Cold Blooded(nice off sheet dps boost with comet) -Galvanizing ward -Arcane dynamo(another off sheet dps boost due to alternation of comet and living lightning). -Evocation(if you are low on chc) -Conflagration(if you use a fire meteor) Note: This is a very micro-intensive build if you know the term from RTS games, so it shines most with good coop play. Will not function well in a dysfunctional party. For those that depend on Nova: The key skills work with frost nova just not if you perma freeze. Though if you were to do this i think you would do better with a standard cm build. PS: I will continue to edit as the thread continues and as I try different things.
