Please don't go with AoE lol. People can kill faster by going one by one including yourself doing that even if the AoE was maxed. The AoE specialization was utter joke, just because Wiz has more AoE than the others.. it just none other than fancy skills. Meteor storm is useless
. Explosion is close to that. You only need Inferno and Frost Nova as bonus.
Burst DPS is Sorc job. That's why they should go hybrid. Single target DPS? If it wasn't only because other class was forced to play their role i.e. Priest Full Support, Wiz DPS is the worse among all class DPS builds.
There are only two things that Wiz great at.
First, Wiz always be the last man standing in party if there was team wipe out. If not, then that person is not doing it right.
Second, they always be the only one Wiz in party. And also they have lesser competition with token.
Because of these two, you will feel good as Wiz and saying how good Wiz is overall. Enjoy your loot and all. Keep farming. Came out later with the full equipped gears as top damager. Laugh while you can. Wait until other class chase up, yes, they do cry at this moment, until they find Warrior and Rogue as god later on.
Here is just an extra, results according to my theory
. But of course it was tested without skill change idea propose there. I have tested it in SEARO a couple of weeks ago and confirmed by my guildmates that watching my play. Solo leveling to level39 in less than a day with all killing khara completed, 0% profession. Basically I get to cast instant Firebolt if I get full buffed. Something close to 0 CD Firebolt and Fireball with 99% uptime. That's after sacrificing DoTs and a couple of Wiz -_-ty Fire skills plus the bonus from returning event. The total damage went far higher from the Fire Wiz and twice faster. The IGN is the same as my forum name if any wondering. Only because I was undergeared and it starting to hard to move further plus Noel is coming on 30th so I stopped. It's only one day one shot experience.
