The prismatic prestidigitation of the Wizard is as impressive as it is destructive. In this week's Play Your Way feature, V3dun#2884
draws a parallel between the Void Ray unit
in StarCraft II and his own "virtually eternal power source!"
About the Build:
Many channeling skills were updated in patch 2.1.0, especially the Wizard's. V3dun#2884
was already experimenting with Ray of Frost
and his Light of Grace
prior to the patch, and the tools and tweaks that came along allowed him to explore further and climb higher. Today, we're going to dig into his discoveries!
I'MMA FIRIN' MAH LAZOR!
V3dun chose to name this build after the Void Ray from StarCraft II, pointing out two major comparisons between his build and the Protoss unit. Not only do the Ray of Frost
visuals look similar to the Void Ray's Prismatic Beam, but the mechanics are reminiscent—in Wings of Liberty, the longer a Void Ray locked onto its target, the more damage it did over time.
The Void Ray build is Legendary heavy, and you’ll certainly be looking for a few specific pieces to get it rolling. However, even if you're lacking a few integral items for higher level Torment difficulties or Greater Rifts, you can also make it work at lower gear thresholds by focusing on certain stats as outlined below.
V3dun has many of his recommended items, though it's clear there's room to chase just a few more!
