While Firebird’s Finery received a massive upgrade in the current patch 2.7.0, I will be one of the first to admit that I did not care for this build in particular. Compared to the Tal Rasha + Firebird’s Finery build on PTR prior to the damage swap, this build feels a bit awkward to get used to and on paper does not seem to make that much sense. Yet it pretty much has been one of the show stealers, if not THE show stealer for Season 23 and will be still strong in Season 24, especially with the available of Ethereals.
So I hopped on the PTR today a few times to give the new Firebird revamp a spin along with checking out the new changes for ones Followers. Initially, I thought that the Tal Rasha 5 piece + Firebird 3 piece would be good but I did encounter issues as I upped the difficulty level.
So I finally got my Hydra build up and running. Sadly, it was far easier to gear this character than my demon hunter, but that’s understandable as my demon hunter was my starter. However, before I tried this build, I was going Legacy of Dreams just to give it a shot. It felt a little awkward since I had no idea what I was doing and made the decision to try the new wizard set instead.
My title for this blog is more of a rhetorical question rather than a real question because the answer is clearly: YES! I overheard someone talking about the previous season’s Firebird set and how getting through T2 Zoltun Kulle was a little problematic. And when you have problems killing one of the easier bosses in the game, you clearly know you have issues with a set.
The big thing about Season 5 for Diablo 3 was how Wizards now have become one of the top classes in the game alongside Crusaders. One of the more popular builds is for DPS in 4 man groups which has become the season’s group meta. What has changed and what makes the Delsere’s such a high end build?
In trying to gear up a new seasonal wizard recently, I found myself with the Vyr’s/Archon set. To say that this set sucks is an understatement. I know there are those that managed to make it work and did well with it. But that doesn’t necessarily mean the set/skill is any good.
No fancy picture today containing my build from PTR. But I wanted to discuss the basic build for the revamped Vyr’s set based on my own play through on PTR.
Last night was awesome in terms of getting gear. I decided to switch back to playing a Witch Doctor out of boredom in playing my barbarian and demon hunter a bit much lately. For her I was missing one key piece of gear…was…
While I do have some time to play during the week, most of my progress for Diablo 3 comes exclusively on the weekends. This weekend my main target was to finish putting together an Unhallowed Essence build which I managed to accomplish. So I’d like to share some thoughts on that as well as other things I’ve been working on along the way.
