Need advice with gear for easier act2 farming (and first steps toward act3)
Dear fellow wizards, I'm currently farming act1 with one hand and act2 without much difficulty (with a bit of kitting and using a shield if I'm not in a solid group). I think that I'm at a step where my gear is quite homogenous: none sucks but none rocks either.
The problem is I don't know which piece I gear I should upgrade first. I feel like all I find interesting from the AH is priced at 2-5MG which is something I can't afford unless the upgrade is really worth it.
Also I don't know which stat I should focus on, life per hit? DCC?
I'm currently playing a hydra/orb build but I could change it in the future since it may be not optimal at all.
And here is my stuff: So what do you guys think I should change first? I have about 6 million Gold to spend.
Thanks a lot for your help!

So is the question about spec or gear? Gear wise, belt seems like a good piece to look at upgrading. It has good int/vit, but it doesn't have res all, bonus armor, hp/s, mf, or anything else good.
Are you hardcore or softcore? If softcore, a source instead of a shield would up your damage a lot. Your shield isn't even that great. It has good block% but no res all or crit.
Build wise, your crit is low so crit mass is off the table. You say you're looking at going into a3. What's the hangup? If the hangup is that you're dying a lot, may I suggest the holy trinity of wizard defense: illusionist+duplicates+wormhole. You poop out duplicates every time you get hit, basically, and you wormhole away whenever there's ground poop, or walls, or you just don't like the way somebody is looking at you.
