I've been playing about with the Wizard since beta and have finally ended up with a Torment viable build for Hardcore Wizards. (Also posted this in wizard forum, but seemed logical to post here too)
Electrocute: Lightning Blast
Credit to Mouze for this one, I was using Spectral Blades (Barrier Blades) until I read his post and thought I'd give it a try. Good all-round fast firing, LoH generating skill.
Arcan Orb: Frozen Orb
Awesome skill, think you'll all agree.
Skill 1 (Get me outta here)
Will get you the out of trouble, and far away and allow you to escape a gizzly end.
Skill 2 (Arcane Generation)
An extra 2 arcane/s is always welcome - especially when allowing you to spam more orbs.
Skill 3 (Damage)
Magic Weapon: Force Weapon
I'm in between this and deflection, but this just takes the edge. Things can't kill you if they're dead ^^
Skill 4 (Armour)
Ice Armour: Crystalise
Ok so I've chosen to go with this one as each time you get hit your armour increase by 20% (can stack 3 times), but more importantly, when things just up close and personal they either get chilled or frozen. Has saved my life a few times.
Generates a shield of 12, 551 as long as you havn't taken damage in 5 secs (rebuilds between fights) Good hardcore skill.
At full blast, grants another shield of 24, 770 of absorption. Another good protective skill.
On hardcore, don't leave home without it.
Well that's what I'm using at the moment, just thought I'd share it with you guys.
Take care, and stay safe =)
