good for staying away doing massive aoe dmg from safe distance also comet and hydra + slow from arcane passive makes kiting super easy(fast mobs and mobs with reflect dmg are the bane of this build)

My own version of the very popular Wizard build, including the passive "Critical Mass".

You want a high critical hit chance, I will say go for at least 20 %. Arcane power on crit. is also preferable, 8-10 should do it.

Spectral Blade + Healing Blades: High damage + healing.
Energy Twister + Wicked Wind: Primary attack. Spam this on the enemies while they are frozen, gives you lots of crits to reduce cooldowns.
Diamond Skin + Crystal Shell: PROTECTION! Spam this, it keeps you alive. ...

Hell wasnt that much of a Problem with this build:
Living Lighning is going to be used in combo with items that give Life on Hit, which is pretty insane especially against masses. Since it even harmonizes very well with prodigy, you almost never run out of Arcane Power. Only negative point on LL is the slow movement but thats where the Orb and Hydra comes into play.

Switch Archon for Mirror Image to fight Izual.

With a good amount of Life on Hit you can just stand there, spam LL and tank. Archon for Bosses/Rare Encounters.
Best Inferno Wizard Build by Toby on May 20, 2012 - Preview

This build is made for Inferno. What it requires, is that your Wizard has no vitality gear, but a lot of life regeneration gear instead. Your max life is going to be around 4700 in total with no vitality gear - not much for inferno most would say! The deal is that some of the elite monsters on inferno, would kill you with one hit anyway. I explain later.

Skills, and why i chose them:
Energy armor + Force armor rune = You can MAX loose 35% of your life (1645 life with no vitality gear). ...

Focused on creating MAX AOE damage with Arcane Orb.

How to use:
1. Create a familar, with sparkflint rune. This will give you 12% more damage. Passive skill Glass canon also gives you 15 % more damage.
2. When attacking, summon a hydra, get close to a group of monsters and use Arcane Orb, dealing a lot of AOE damage. Use diamond Skin when you get low on life (you need to be pretty close to monsters with Arcane Orb). Use Archon when available and there is a lot of monsters to hit (to increase the duration of Archon).

Just a random Wizard build.

Use energy armor, familar and diamond skin and attack your enemy. Use blizzard, archon and disintegrate as your primary attack spells.

Port onto them, frost nova, blink back, and blizzard away. Follow with frost nova then mirror image and rinse and repeat. Ray of Frost can be spammed in between everything as it is free to cast.
