    Hi guys.

    Playing RoS on Xbox1 and looking for some advice on skill set and gear layout.

    Currently rocking
    Electrocute with fire rune as my 'free' skill.
    Disintegrate with double beam as my main blasting skill.
    Magic Weapon with Shielding rune.
    Diamond Skin with the arcane cost reduction rune.
    Mammoth Hydra
    Meteor (the big one)!

    I am using All firebirds minus the armor (cindercoat) and gloves (magefist) with a RRoG ofcourse. Second ring is some Legendary (maybe skull grasp or nagel with a Bane of the Powerful in).
    Amulet i cant remember (it is legendary), has the ranged attacks do more damage further away gem in it.
    Weapon is something key with the biggest emerald in.

    Now my goals next are to get a better cindercoat (had to reroll a dex one) and to get a SoJ and RRoG which are both socketed. Also want to get Serpent Sparker for more Hydra ;)

    Anyone else have skill suggestions? For a pure fire build i feel i may have some misplaced skills but unsure what to change.

    Regards

    Twibz

    A common Firebird-build is to skip the signature spells and go Apocalypse, Black Hole and Molten Impact with a slow 2-hander: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/wizard#lQSPNO!bdZY!YaZcYc

    or replace Molten Impact with Mammoth Hydra: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/wizard#lQSiNO!bdZY!YaZcYc

    If you have Serpent Sparker and Tasker and Theo switch to Blazing Hydra as they benefit from IAS: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/wizard#lQSiNO!bdZY!YaZbYc

    3 gems at lvl 25 is a huge buff, example Zeis, Bane of the Powerful and Toxin.

    Strongarm Bracers work very well with Black Hole.

    If you wanna go with Disintegrate there´s a popular guide here: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/13204310667
    Haven´t tried it myself, seems to be built around Tal Rashas set.
