So i’m trying to play with wizards now since my scout kinda feel meh atm since end-game content feels a little boring at PvE. And here is my question: wich build works fine and has great damage aganist mobs/bosses and, if it’s possible, pvp?
I saw some builds and i tested some of them with the sprout event, but i feel that those builds were kinda not my style or it fells in some way weak ( i’m a scout player, so i think thats why i feel those classes a bit weaker ). The builds i’ve tried:
Ele - taoist - pyro: I’ve enjoyed taoist’s damage, but elementalist and pyro was really horrible to my playstyle, the damage/“support” was ok, but when i faced bosses that moves a lot, i just spend my SP damaging nothing.
Taoist - cryo - WL: i tryed to teorycraft this build as i do with scout (my currently build it’s Sheriff - BM- Ardito, i know, strange but works for me and i do invest in 2 sub-weapons ), but… was strange to play with. Use Taoist + Cryo skills results a great combo, but WL was just there, doing nothing.
Cryo - Kino - Onmyoji: This one feels like it work awesome at PvP since it has many CC, but i can’t do the ice wall + psychic pressure combo in time and the damage was strange/weak… Onmyoji before Re:Build was weak in my opinion, now fells more weaker, but since i play with scout, everything fells weak
FF - Shadow - WL: The Dark Wizard build that many friends were talking about… I’ve understand the concept and the support from each passive from each class, but i don’t know if it works that well. I’ve just read and saw some videos, it was great and the damage was really high, but i wanna something that could at least work at PvP content and i just didn’t feel that this one works as much as some build with cryo, kino or Onmyoji. I know that Shadowmancer it’s kinda a utility class with shadow pool, hallucination, and has some bossing potential with the fear debuff/combo from shadow condensation (3 sec really worth it?) + shadow thorn/shadow conjuration. I’ve played with shadow when this class came to IToS, but just this class was kinda weak without linker, now that wizard lost linker, i can’t see shadow as a good damage dealer/utility class.
BTW, those 3 sec from shadow condensation are worth it?
BTW2, the passive shadow conjuration: Shadow trap does how much damage? It’s ok to spend many points on it if i decided to use shadowmancer?
As i was writing this topic, i was recording some topics from this forum and thought this builds ( i don’t know if i saw this builds somewhere and just poped in my mind):
- WL - FF - Onmyoji
1- FF passive Witch Doctor + FF skills + WL skills combo, theoretically ( i didn’t play with this build, actually i didn’t play with wizard classes for a long time) will be a great AoE/single damage resorce.
2- I know that Kundela Slash: Curse of Curses aply 3 hits, but if all debuffs from the 4 classes (wizard included - lethargy), it will never hit less than 3 hits since the target will always have many debuffs. Levitation: Cursed Blood will increase more the damage from FF skills, this will make him more strong. Plus the Enervation debuff could be much more OP.
3- Onmyoji could work as a super-AoE damage dealer (i disagree that he gives all that damage, but…) + utility with his skills. Genbu armor as a defensive/desperate option. Passive from Yin Yang Harmony: Mediator will increase much more all Dark FF and WL skills in a +20% for 50 sec.
And thats why i, theoretically, think this build could work really fine for me at PvE/PvP, but when you look to all those skills, i think that it has too many skills/rotations, and thats make me worried if i’ll manage to play appropriately…
What do you think, guys? This build could work? Someone have tested? And please, take it easy on me, i’m brand new at wizard tree and i’m a huuuuuuge nb at it ( and my english it’s horrible).
