Build guide

Hey boyz! Season One & Two - Rank 1 monk (world) here!

In my opinion/experience this build is currently one of the strongest possible wizard setups for solo competitive greater rift laddering.

Please note: I always keep my diablo fans guides up to date and will be making adjustments to the guide whenever there is a shift in endgame meta! so be sure to check back, and vote on the guide!

Basic game-play strategy:


Build Chantodo's stacks and reduce Archon cooldown with Arcane torrent
Use Archon (only if @ 20 Chantodo's stacks)
Use Slow Time (just once every time you enter [Archon Form])
Spam Arcane Blast [Archon Form]
Hold down Arcane Strike [Archon Form]
Pull enemies misc with Disintegration [Archon Form]
Maintain Ice Armour buff
Maintain Magic Weapon buff

Skill variations:



Blizzard - Snowbound (Use instead of magic weapon, for Animation canceling technique shown in video guide).


Hellfire Passive:



Illusionist


Stat Priority:



Helm: Socket>Crit
Shoulders: CDR
Torso: x3 Sockets
Legs: x2 Sockets
Gloves: CDR>ChC>CHD
Rings: Socket>CDR>Crit>CHD
Waist: 15% Life
Wrist: 20% Lightning damage>ChC
Amulet: Socket>ChD>20% Lightning>ChC
Weapon: CDR>LPH
