Wiz is overall quite sensitive to errors and thus doesn't look like the best class for trial of iron solo, but is pretty competitive I'd say. I'm still not convinced it's doable legitimately at all. For regular solo though where you aren't punished for a single small error, he's one of the best classes. Also casters have probably the best power scaling so he's quite OP by the endgame. I don't have a wizard main, but I just tried to duo Thaos letting him kill my main and do it with the wizard. Must say he can take the fight pretty much head on.

well on my trial of iron im up to heritage hill, and ive cleared cliaban rilag. Im relatively confident going forwards as nothing ive encountered so far has been able to eat through my summon shield before i can replace it, my only problem is a lack of dps, but when i get the fire aura that should get much better because as it is ive put all my talents into being as tanky as possible, large shield, heaviest armor, shield and sword, cautious attack. 

 

as a result mostly i rely on wearing the enemy down,however I can use level three scrolls so if the need arises i can nuke people.

Well, eager to see how it works out.

 

Btw, petrifying Thaos and then finishing him off with summoned Spirit Lance should award your wizard bonus style points. Lance is not that great of a spell, but it looks so badass  :devil:

Being Rogue makes the fight easier.

 

Still, did you try to use the small technique i use where i move my character right before the fight starts ?

 

Because if you do that, you basically 1v1 Thaos without taking the aggro on the judge!

 

Try it

 

Does this works on the latest patch (1.04)?

 

According to patch notes:

 

 

 

  • Game will now pause if you Alt-Tab during a cutscene in full screen mode.

On a different note, you have a lot of reputation in lots of factions, I'm wondering what quest did you do and which you didn't (or tryied to avoid).

 

Some screenshots on your Journal would be much appriaciated!

Ok, that makes it more complicated. You can't alt+ Tab anymore, but there is still a frame before Thaos speaks. That means that you still can pause the game here, but you'll have to train it a bit more.

 

 

And sure, i'll make a screen on my journal. But i don't think i did anything special.

Resolved all the quests before ACT 3 (or almost, I couldn't beat Cain for example). Followed the Doemmel house because the quests are the easiest, tried to resolve the quests the longest way possible because they bring you better reputation most of the time.

 

But i don't think those reputation influence so much the game in the end. I didn't really find a real intrest in it, except a price reduction in the shops, but that you don't really need when you play solo 'cause you're rich as hell.

Good stuff, thank you!

 

Looking at your video, I noticed you're using Reckless Assault modal. Considering this build mostly works around retaliation (based on deflection), does the x1.2 melee damage make up for the -8 deflection?

Good question. First, if you upgrade Reckless Assault, the malus will be reduced at only -3 points which is not so much.

 

So a -3 Deflection for a +20% Bonus Damage is really good, especially on the final fight where you cannot deflect the attacks from the bosses.

 

But don't rush it, I took it 'cause nothing else was really intresting late game.
