    Thumbs up You starting build for May 15 ?

    Hey guys,

    Playing the open beta weekend made me realize something: since you can "respec" whenever you want, you can get an optimized build to start, one for the midgame and one for the late game.

    What build do you guys plan to use at the very start of May 15 ?

    Signature spell: which one is the best at the beginning of the game ?

    My guess would be Shock Pulse (explosive bolts): I found it very useful during the beta

    secondary: Which one do you prefer at the very low levels ?

    I personally prefer Ray of frost (any rune, until I get cold blooded): the cold effect is cool and I wonder if cold blooded would allow me to go without a signature spell in the midgame or lategame

    Defensive: Frost nova ? I really love this one.

    Force: wave of force or energy twister ? I tested both, and it seemed wave of force felt better.

    Passives: early game, I think Power Hungry and Evocation are the most useful.

    For me, I prefer long ranged attacks. Walking up to cast just takes too long.

    I like magic missile + split on left click and arcane orb on right click.

    Then prism and frost nova on the skill bar.

    Just spam arcane orb from far. If they don't die then spam missile with split. If they get close to you then frost nova and continue to use orb/magic missile. If they don't die during the freeze, then cast prism and keep attacking.

    I like experimenting around, so once new skills/runes will unlock, I will for sure try them all out.

    But most likely I will be sticking to something like this (until 13):

    Spectral Blade / Arcane Orb (or torrent) / Frost Nova / Wave of Force

    The pulse shock is a nice ability, but it's usefulness suffers highly against single strong foes and more imporatant: against destructable objects, which drives me mad...

    I'll just tackle along, like i did in the Beta, by picking what seems to suit best and go from there, always on the lookout for a fast weapon with high damage.

    Seriously, this is what the game boils down too, in what defines how much damage you character will do.

    I didn't get time to play the beta a lot (only during the open beta weekend), but sometimes it's worth it to sacrifice 1 dps to get other things like AP or something, no ?

    I don't think this would be the choice modifier on the main weapon, if it would exist.

    Because of the AoE/multiple target nature of the signature spells, I find myself going for attack speed over DPS.
