We've researched some of the best advice for a Diablo Immortal Best Wizard build.

The Wizard class in Diablo Immortal hits hard from both close quarters and at range. It is a bit squishy though, so make sure to stay out of the line of fire to stay up and fighting. To that end, we've compiled some of the best tips for creating the best Wizard build in Diablo Immortal.

Diablo Immortal Best Wizard Build: Skills to Take

We recommend the following skills for Wizards to focus on adding to and building around:

  • Magic Missile: Launch a missile of energy, dealing 1,485 to 2,079 damage.
  • Meteor: Summon an immense meteor that plummets from the sky, dealing X damage and Stunning all enemies in the impact area for 3 seconds. The ground it hits is scorched, Burning enemies for Y damage over 6 seconds.
  • Arcane Wind: Unleash a blast of wind in a direction, dealing 1,782 damage and knocking away enemies. Charging longer increases range, knocking away distance, and damage up to 2,376. Deals 50% increased damage to Burning enemies.
  • Teleport: Teleport forward. Maximum 3 charges.
  • Scorch: Launch a flaming orb that deals 1,402 damage and knocks away enemies, leaving a Burning trail that deals 1,212 over 6 seconds.
  • Ice Armor: Surround yourself in a barrier of ice for 8 seconds that absorbs up to X damage. When the barrier expires, it will shatter for Y damage to all nearby enemies and inflict 40% Chill for 6 seconds. Activate again to shatter the barrier immediately.

Other skills to consider include:

  • Lightning Nova: Hurl 10 balls of lightning away from you in all directions, dealing X damage as they pass outward and again as they return to your new location. Limit 6 hits per target. Hits 2 and beyond on a target deal only 30% damage.
  • Disintegrate: Channel a beam of pure energy in a direction, continually dealing X damage to all enemies caught in the beam and causing them to take 2% increased damage for 1.5 seconds, stacking up to 5 times. Using Disintegrate slowly consumes its energy, which recovers while Disintegrate is not in use.
  • Black Hole: Conjure a black hole for 3 seconds at a location, which will pull in all nearby enemies and deal X damage over 3 seconds.
  • Slow Time: Invoke a bubble of warped time and space for 6.6 seconds at a location, reducing attack and movement speeds of affected enemies by 50%, and slowing the movement of enemy projectiles by 80%.

The two best attributes to focus on are Intelligence and Fortitude. Intelligence, of course, is the primary combat stat for spellcasters, which grants additional damage per point.
