Or you can skip the secondary gems, focus on your build, and start going for augment gems. Obviously if you are running MP (which I know you aren't as much) then the level you're comfortably/quickly running would likely be higher.

I haven't augmented a single piece yet as I feel I'm still going for gear. I was thinking I should go on a burn and level up some 60's though. I do have a secondary enforcer above 60, but that is mostly cause I get tired of swapping back and forth when I switch to my TX farm build. TBH, I've already started a bit of a burn-out but I think it was more timing/work kicking my butt the last week.
In S3 I ran the Roland's sweep build to the 50's I think? Mind you, this was before Kanai's cube and other buffs. S4's changes alone brought the 'sader well into the 60's/70's (Hammerdin), I just burnt out before I could run him. I seriously have a fully built 'sader from S4 without any gems socketed in armor and no HF but all the mats. I would fire up the game and stare at my HF mats and not want to roll them. tongue.gif S5 has the 'sader even higher.

*edit - Oooh, I didn't realize you called out HC. I'm sure HC builds are not that far off of standard. You would obviously build them a little different, but check the leaderboards in-game (Shift + L).

As for Wiz, I'm not sure.

Speaking of which - LoN really sucks for HF. I've rolled so many badass HF that I whimper at and then slvg. frown.gif

What does that Roland Sweep build look like, exactly?

I have full rolands, shield bash bracers, sweep attack weapon + shield, piro mirella effect via Cube... and I can't run T10 at all.

In my opinion, this is the best Roland's set build but as I mentioned. Its very risky for HC.

I'm not online right now, so I'm about to get real technical... tongue.gif you use those pointy-ish orange/red bracers, the spiked shield with the chains off the bottom, and the flail has a real "barb" sort of point on the end. lachen.gif mind you, this is what I played in S3 so I'm sure there are updates.

*edit - I couldn't bear my overly-technical post, so I looked up the first one that seems similar on diablofans: http://www.diablofans.com/builds/70032-2-4-gr88-roland-sweep-solo-group

Haha thanks for that description! I've used the same weapon and shield, don't have a furnace yet, however.

Perhaps my mistake was trying to play with Shield Bash + Sweep combined...

Yeah, you should go either for Sweep or Shield Bash. Preferably Sweep as it does have an edge over shield bash.

Logged in yesterday for the first time in a couple months. I already had a Firebird set so I switched over to it and started coming up with a build. I took the firebird build from icy veins and modified it with Etched Sigil offhand and Blizzard/Apocalypse instead of Familiar. The damage is pretty insane.

*Eek. Armory is still showing the talents from my old Tal Rasha build.

haha, no problem. I likes to get technical in the details! lol

WD builds right now are real tanky, believe it or not. I think if I were to go HC I'd do WD or 'sader.

Sounds kind of like what I would run while starting out a wizard. It's a pretty good setup to farm items without having hard to accomplish gear requirements.

I think the easiest next step would be if you find a wand of woh, transition in to the wand of woh tals/firebird build: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Crazy9000-1143/hero/72635518

The most damage comes from the energy twister build- it's the highest damage in the game currently. (solo gear on, showing multiplayer skills. explosive blast -> arcane torrent with lightning rune for solo) http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Crazy9000-1143/hero/71906222

I've never seen that wand drop. I played Tal Rasha last patch, I think I'll stick with Firebirds for a bit to mix it up. Still working on this build and I really need to get better rings/neck drops, either that or burn through mats rerolling them.
