I decided to mess with this game briefly after a long, long time away from it. No clue what's changed, but I'm sure a ton has (those Books of Cain weren't around last time I played).
I'm trying to figure out if I want to play with a wizard or DH (solo/SC this time. Self found till 60, then will probably use the gold AH). For wizard, two of my favorite spells have always been the above (spectral blades and wave of force). Clearly, neither of these can make a top cookie cutter wizard that can romp through mp10. I don't really care. If I did DH, I think I have my build figured out. I feel I'd probably prefer a wizard though, if I was able to play with the above somehow.
What I'm looking for is a build that will be able to work passably well on mp1, killing things fast enough and avoiding death well enough that I don't simply get amazingly frustrated. I used to play HC back when I did, so SC is nice in that I feel it frees up several passive/active skill slots. But does anyone have any ideas on what I might want to combine with either/both of those skills?
Or are those skills just really bad to make a build around - even a build that's not shooting to be particularly great.

Re: Any (Viable) Builds With Spectral Blades and/or Wave of Force?
I've been playing a spectral/meteor/CM build:
She's strong in MP5-MP6, solo. The only time she bogs down is in a public game where the other 3 players are <100K dps, because there's no way to keep the crowd frozen long enough.
I'm finding this to be my favorite, mostly because you're always in the middle of battle, not trying to fight as a ranged character, and with the meteors going it feels like the sort of epic, elemental walking source of destruction you'd imagine a wizard should be.
I formerly played her as a traditional CM/Wicked Wind wizard, but got bored and couldn't keep up the button mashing for very long.
