I preferred to play with ray of frost (numb rune), shock pulse (explosive bolts rune), wave of force, and diamond skin. Ray of frost is great for single target dps, shock pulse to spam groups at medium range, and wave of force for huge groups when surrounded.
I think it's also obvious that it depends greatly on gear. Your experience and my experience may be very different depending on gear. I ended up getting a weapon with 17ish dps by the end of my first play through (approx level 7).

Indeed. I plan on finishing my playthrough with the wizard tonight at some point.

Death Adder is the 2nd best mouse I've ever owned. I like my current
(Mamba 2012) better, but it basically is a wireless Death Adder. Amazing mice! thumb.gif

I hated my Mamba that I had. I bought it thinking it was going to be the holy grail of mice and wow was I disappointed with it. Been sticking with Logitech mice since. (G9, G500, G700)

Did you get the old revision of it? The 2012 version seems to have fixed a lot of the complaints.

I only needed to get it because my new setup includes a giant comfy chair, the wire wasn't working redface.gif

Yeah this was a while back, at least a year ago. Probably closer to 2.

I currently have the G5 mouse... will I notice a difference with the death adder? I've considered it due to playing CSS.

Very doubtful, the G5 is a nice mouse. I would only recommend switching mice if you found the G5 uncomfortable or if it was giving you other problems. Even then I would probably recommend a Logitech mouse. I only recommended him a DeathAdder because he uses a claw grip.

Diablo III, the longest Blizzard beta ever. Also the longest time in between an announcement and release of a Blizzard game.

The only class I have yet to try is the barbarian. I imagine the barb will hit hard, but I doubt he'll be able to kill multiple targets as fast. Time will tell. Of course, this is only the beta and only to level 13... so it's impossible to draw hard conclusions.
Go wizzards!

Lol barbs wont get much AOE, thats a lol. tongue.gif

They get cleave pretty early on hitting targets in an arch infront of them, and i think ive seen bash hit multiple targets at once too when their really close to each other. leap attack is aoe, hell tell me a skill that not aoe I cant sus this one out. whats he on about? tongue.gif

Go Barbs! tongue.gif

I'm not saying that barbs won't get much AOE. I'm saying that wizzards will probably do it better. When it comes to diablo... my focus is killing the highest number of monsters I can in the shortest amount of time. It is my opinion, but I think that the wizzard will excel in this measurement.

That being said... I do feel that Blizzard did a better job with D3 than D2 when it comes to class balances. I feel that each class can perform the same task (aoe, single target, stun etc), they just execute them differently. In some cases, the skill mechanics are almost identical with variances in visuals.

From my experience in beta Wizard is better for burst aoe and then they run out of arcane power, barbs can just cleave all day then do the attack speed buff. I have gotten every character to 13 but this was before runes came out.
