So, I never got around to playing the wizard in the beta weekend, but I fooled around with the skill builder and came up with this
Not sure if it will be any good, but should be good for a laugh at least.
One thing I'm not really sure about is Magic Weapon. I'm hoping it will enhance the power of Spectral Blade, but I can't be sure. I tried looking around the forums but haven't seen anything that definitively answered my question. At the very least I'm thinking it will make my Wizard look cool lol. If not I suppose I'll grab another offensive/defensive skill.
Standard battle plan will be as follows:
1. Walk up to mobs and slap them around with Spectral Blade
2. Occasionally pop Arcane Nova and Force Wave for crowd control
3. Pop Magic Weapon to look scary and intimidating
4. Laugh as the mob's attacks bounce off harmlessly off of me
Let me know if I blatantly missed something in my infinite noobishness
PS: For those curious I made a conscious choice not base my build around the highest and most powerful rune effects. I'd rather not feel like I have to wait until Lvl 55+ when I'm already in Inferno or whatever to feel like my build is finally 'complete.' At that point, yeah, I'll get those runes, but I'm not basing my build around them. I want to feel like my PC is complete and battle-ready around lvl 30-40.
