Im gonna start by saying, this aint for colo, nothing regarding PVP, its raid and to top the DPS.
I recently created my Wizard, and i will be looking through this more clear once i reach Lv.50
At the moment im following a recommended common build and accepted it.
But the more i think of it the more it makes sense. Haste seems to be very valueable at the end, talking about Abyss/Despair/Chaos etc.
Lets say u'll be having around 25-30% haste @ Lv50, well geared & unbuffed.
Fire Bolt seems to be your main spell, the spammer if you will.
Now i only played as Ranger, and if im not mistaken, you could literally cast 2x "Charged Arrow" within a sec, when activated your Guardian (30% haste)
Now if Wizard is the same case, isnt it sort of obvious that by using this, it would bring out the max potential from the class?
Im gonna go step by step here, starting with Pyro.
Truth be told, this can be counted as a permanent effect while ure in combat.
It generates 15 points every bolt (which you'll be dishing out within 5 sec)
You wait till its duration has runned out.
The only purpose for this is the use of 10% haste (for 30 entire sec!) and not the use of Flame Explosion.
Flame Explosion will probably lower your dps, if you're in ur rampage time spamming Bolt.
Fire Vs Wind
I've seen alot of debates on this, and it pretty much relies on how well geared you are, its about balance like any other game.
You can focus on getting as much Magic Attack as possible and skip the other things, You can focus on getting as much Haste as possible and skip the other things, and so on.
But with +10 gears ull be doing pretty much damage anyway, whats important by then is how fast you can use it.
Being able to cast 2x skills of 5 dmg instead of 1x skill of 7 dmg, within the same time is simply better.
Wind will increase you're haste by 20% for 30min, i rest my case there.
The Seal Explosion will therefore also add 15% Haste for 20 sec. (now 20 sec isnt long, but its long enough when you're going rampage to top the Threat Meter)
So what we have is.
Gear and Status - 30% Haste
Seal Explosion - 15% Haste
Wind Emblem - 20% Haste
Pyromaniac 10% Haste
And not to mention Guardian
If you're fast enough to keep up with ur clicking, id say you'll be able to make tons of damage, around 3-4k/bolt @ 60% crit rate, probably 2-3 hits a 1,5sec
Now i havent settled anything, this is just a curious question regarding the haste.
Has this been tried by any experienced Wizard? Do share your view (if you never played wizard, dont bother replying)
If no one do reply to correct me if im wrong, ill be sure to go this path to try it out.
