Thorns are also really really good for barbs as well.

The health globe passive for barbs is immensely useful. A health globe will bring me from 10% hp up to about 80% thumb.gif

the attribute that makes take 10% dmg, but I do 15% more. I think I got like 150 resist to all and 200 to some.

Take off glass cannon right away. That is quite possibly the worst passive in the game, imo

I got 26K HP, 15K damage, around 300+/- resistances (high 200's to mid 300's), and 12% movement speed

Skills are:

Primary - Electrocution that returns AP
Secondary - Venom Hydra
Skill 1 - Arcane Orbs with Tap the Source
Skill 2 - Blizzard with Frozen Solid
Skill 3 - Energy Armor with Force Armor (prevents you from being one shotted)
Skill 4 - Diamond Skin with Mirror

My attack speed is at 1.78 right now and I regenerate 500 HP/s.

You basically want to make sure you always stay as far away from them as possible. Blizzard + Hydra is great for kiting and IAS + Arcane Orbs is great for spamming.

You can always use a high DPS fire weapon in conjunction with Conflagration, Swords, and Magic Weapon to deal major, major DPS.

To each his own really. I don't find them dropping conveniently enough for me. I rather depend on more reliable ways of getting life back. Just my personal opinion though. Play whatever way gives you the best enjoyment.

Not true. It is a very good passive. Here is the thing, wizards are not suppose to be hit. You want to kite and do as much damage as possible on the go. Force Armor prevents things from one shotting you (assuming you are not about to die) and movement keeps you ahead of your enemies. You have diamond skin to fall back on in case you can't dodge a projectile.

You CHOSE YOURSELF to use AH, because you did not want to grind for loot. You wanted QUICKER GRATIFICATION and CHOSE to spend money in the AH. They did not build the game around AH. You know what I do when AH is down? What I always do when I login to D3, play the damn game. rolleyes.gif
Speed runs =/= Actual game play
I can beat Skyrim under 10 hours as well. Does that make it "short?" Hell no it doesn't. If you progress through the game normally and explore this world that was created for us, I promise you Act 2 and 3 do not feel short at all. Act 1 is designed to help you figure the game out, so it forces you to go at a slower pace. Act 2 is in a huge desert so you are free to roam if you want, but if you play through it normally, it is HUGE and takes forever. thumb.gif
I sold a really crappy legendary shield for 5 mil. It is not about the stats or damage. It is about the status and rarity. People buy legendary stuff not because its worth a damn, but for ePeen purposes.

Yes like someone will really grind gear in hell hoping for specific gear that caters to their build/class until they are geared to enter the AH. Sorry but this just isn't realistic with all the different possibilities on drops/stats.

And that right there illustrates Blizz's thinking with the skills and runes. There's plenty, plenty of configuration possible, to allow you to play the way you feel works biggrin.gif

Speaking of "looks" of characters (in response to the clown Barb earlier biggrin.gif)

VZe3f.jpg

That's my char some levels ago, but with the white dye. I still think that lookss best, overall biggrin.gif

This screenshot is taken a few minutes ago, with red dye applied to gear. I prefer white, but... red looks pretty good too biggrin.gif

Glass cannon is excellent when used with Energy armor-Force armor. If your going to be one shot, your going to be one shot. With force armor you can give up the extra resist/armor because you are going to die in 3 hits no matter what.

Your gear seems fine for Act 1. Act 2 is a different story.

Through Act 1 I ran :

I changed it up a little in act 2, opting for the cheaper cost on blizzard so that I could spam it when needed.
