Today I have for you one more “tanking” build for Wizard. This time it’s not designed for Inferno but for Hell. If you are having problems surviving Hell or you want to level faster then you can try this build. It will allow you to stay alive for a long time while still doing a lot of damage.
Why this build is different and why it can be useful?
If you are leveling your character for a while then you may be bored with traditional way of playing Wizard. Maybe you do not want to kite mobs all the time and kill them from the distance.
Well, I guarantee you that with this build you won’t have to do it anymore. Finally you will be able to do something different and probably much more fun. CLICK HERE for THE BEST Diablo 3 Wizard Guide.
- “Ray of Frost”
“Project a beam of frozen ice that blasts 215% weapon damage as Cold to the first enemy it hits, slowing the target’s movement by 30% for 3 seconds”.
Rune: Sleet storm
Create a swirling storm around you, dealing 215% weapon damage as Cold to all enemies caught within it.
Description: This will allow you to channell the storm right around you. It doesn’t take that much Arcane power so you can use it for quite a while.
Rune: Frozen Solid
Description: Classic skill for both damaging and slowing enemies. Rune Frozen Solid is perfect for additional chance to freez and controll enemies. It also works really great with this build because it slows enemies so you won’t have to deal with too many of them at once.
Teleport through the ether to the selected location up to 35 yards away.
Summon 2 decoys for 8 seconds after teleporting.
Description: This skill can be used for offensive and defensive purposes You can always Teleport and run away when it is too hot:D. Also you can Teleport into the group of mobs and kill them faster with the Ray of Frost/Sleet storm.
- “Diamond Skin”
“Transform your skin to diamond for 6 seconds, absorbing up to 10853.395 damage from incoming attacks”.
Rune: Crystal skin
“Increases the maximum amount of damage absorbed to 21706.79 damage”.
Description: Absolutely one of the best defensive skills for Wizads and probasbly alos in the game. The amount of absorbed damage by this skill is insane. It is useful especially in this level because mobs do not deal enough damage to kill you that fast when this skill is being active.
- “Energy Armor”
“Focus your energies, increasing your Armor by 65% but decreasing your maximum Arcane Power by 20. Lasts 120 seconds”.
Rune: Energy Tap
“Rather than decreasing your maximum Arcane Power, Energy Armor increases it by 20 while it is active”.
Description: Another great skill for tanking Wizard. This skill helps both your defense and spell casting abilities. Simply you will be able to use more Ray of Frost and of course get additional defense that you will need once you are near mobs.
- “Frost Nova”
“Blast nearby enemies with an explosion of ice and freeze them for 3 seconds”.
Rune: Bone Chill
“Enemies take 15% more damage while frozen or chilled by Frost Nova”.
Description: Perfect skill for tanking Wizard. Once ther is a lot of enemiesd you can freez them with Frost nova and finish for free:). It also works great when you need to escape from the enemies.
1. Astral presence
“Increases your maximum Arcane Power by 20 and Arcane Power regeneration by 2 per second”.
Description: Nice Arcane Power regeneration is always helpful.
2. Cold Blodded
Cold damage dealt to chilled and frozen targets is increased by 20%.
Description: You will freeze a lot of mobs with this build so you additional damage will be.
3. Galvanizing Ward

How to fight with this build?
Wel it’s pretty easy
1. You Teleport to the group of mobs.
2. Use Diamond Skin
3. Use Frost Nova and Blizzard
4. Finnish them with Ray of Frost
This simple strategy will allow you to quickly and easily kill more mobs and thanks to that you will level much faster.
Very improtant in this build. You need “Life per Hit” becasue with Ray of Frost/Blizzard combo you will hit enemeis nearly all the time and greately benefit from this stat. CLICK HERE for THE BEST Diablo 3 Wizard Guide.
