I'm just about using the same build myself, with a rune or 2 being different on my supporting skills. I also use glacial spike as a primary, since it has a freeze effect on the first hit you deal to mobs which ends up being quite nice when having so few defensive skills. It does a bit of splash damage, but it's not great aoe. For me, it has a nice utility with the freeze every 5 seconds, and it quickly recharges my arc power, so it get's the job done. Right now I can farm on t4 pretty comfortably.
Here's a link.
The issues I'm seeing here with some of these builds is the focus on APoC. These builds will be broken once RoS hits with the nerf to 40% of what APoC was pre expansion. An item with 10 APoC will roll a max of 4 APoC i believe with the expansion (correct me if i'm wrong on that).
What i did was focus on Resource Cost Reduction affix on gear and paragon + stack Cold Dmg and Arcane Orb % dmg.
I also swapped out Electrocute for Ray of Frost (with the rune that lowers it's AP cost). Why use a primary that doesn't benefit from your Cold Dmg affix??
I used the AP regen Storm Aromor and Familiar runes. This should be much more future proof then relying heavily on APoC.
Here's a quick vid of my build in action along with links to my bnet profile for skills and gear: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzYaG[/code]-nTvO8
True. I'd suggest adding AZUREWRATH to the build then, as it WILL freeze targets for you. I have also added Blizzard as another control mechanic that helps with fast moving mobs. Blizzard resource cost is quite low compared to most other skills. I have posted a guide on my youtube for this build:
Control Wizzy (frozen orb varient)
Good luck! ROS is soon to come. :))
But it chills. Read description, please.
Yea chill is fine it does slow them down but I've found completely frozen works better. AZUREWRATH FTW!
Better find Frostburns :) Approx. 38% chance to freeze instead of chill (depends on roll) - new legendary affix for them. My ideal set for Frozen Orb - Azurewrath, Frostburns, Andariel's Visage, Winter Flurry and ...... Ice Climbers (no more jailer, snare and freeze) :)
Btw, previous comment was regarding cold blooded, as in description is said that chill is also triggering this.
