The next three skills are passive buffs to your character which will aid you when mowing down your enemies. Magic Weapon with Force Weapon gives you a nice 20% increase in damage on your auto attacks, this one is a no-brainer. Storm Armor with the Shocking Aspect rune gives you excellent survive-ability while shocking your foes with each critical hit. Lastly is the Familiar skill with the Sparkflint rune which enables you to summon an electric companion that helps you with your Arcane Torrent damage. As an added bonus, Familiar is untargetable by enemies.

The strategy with this build is to buff your character up and hop into the fray damaging all enemies with your Arcane Torrent while utilizing Black Hole for large enemy packs.
For our passive abilities I go with Dominance , Astral Presence , Evocation and if you're level 70, Unwavering Will. These passives are important for our survival and to maintain enough Arcane Power to maximize DPS.
The only requirement to run this setup are level 61 Wizard with decent crafted yellows prioritizing Intelligence , Crit Chance and Crit Damage for stats. If you are level 60 you want to train your blacksmith rank as fast as possible to allow you to craft level 70 weapons. I crafted a yellow level 70 two handed staff and visited the enchanter to lower the level requirement for the weapon.
For gems you want to socket your highest Emerald into your weapon gaining an extra chance to critical hit, for me it was Marquise Emerald.If you're not level 70 you will want to insert your highest Ruby gem into your helmet as this will grant you a moderate experience bonus. If you're already level 70, you can simply socket a Diamond gem for extra armor.
While using this build I was able to be effective in my friends parties with little to no legendary items or set pieces. I hope you enjoyed our guide and we hope you're ready to face any evil that comes your way.
