for example what would be best to get on my weapon , my offhand and then also my normal gear pieces,
what resistance should i get , i occasionally play with a monk / barb and also play a bit of solo. what would be best?
Get a sword or a wand with attack speed and a high damage offhand with int (+crit if you can afford). IAS is great, get it. First focus on your resist and HP, even at the cost of dps then slowly raise your dps. Doesn't matter if you're running 80k dps if you're dead. Those are bare minimums, when you're done with those try cap your movementspeed to 25%.
No piece should ever only have INT+VIT. Any piece that has no IAS on it should contain all resist/armor or vice versa. They should all contain INT and VIT. Shoes and IAS legendaries are an exception as most of them can't contain both stats but make sure you make up for it with other pieces.
but how are some people getting such high dps,
also im currently using the blizzard hydra build . for act 3 is that still viable or should i switch?
Above all, try and get a proper weapon. I recommend 1h+OH for Act 3+ but this can be expensive; still, little boosts your DPS as effectively as a good weapon. The most important stat for a weapon is, of course, DPS but keep an eye on its Attacks per Second. If you manage to find it, INT or Critical Damage is great to have on your weapon but don't sacrifice too much DPS to get it.
also can i also ask again what would be better on my 1h weapon
i have a 1 handed weapon with 772.3 damage and a +47% danage stat. as such what would be priority, this wep or the same damage with a 15% attack speed?
It seems like a wasted stat trying to increase critical chance by a small percentage only to increase damage by 50%+. If the law of averages work out, you might as well just maximize intelligence.

Weapon stats such as +damage or +attack speed are already included in that weapon's DPS, it's not an additional bonus. Choose based on the DPS primarily, with an eye on APS and secondary stats (INT, Crit Damage).
30-40 All Res
Running that kinda build will give you the healt and ress you need to handle inferno easy. The target for us wiz is not to stack up defense until infinity. All you need is that much defense, so almost no hit/spell will 1 shot you. Aslong things won't one shot you force armor will work and will reduce it to 35% dmg, and thats all you need.
appreciate it alot !
really appreciate the help guys thanks!
In a perfect world you would get:
but depending on your needs on offense or defense i would just recommend Int/IAS rings and an amulet with atleast Int/vit/IAS
Just trying to re-gear and resort out my wizard and i want to get it all right
