LoD Twister Wizard Build

(LoD refers to the Legacy of Dreams Legendary Gem).

This build allows the Wizard to have a high damage potential while still being very tanky. It does not rely on any sets, but rather a few legendaries to enhance your Skills. While this build can be complicated to use, it can be very powerful.

This build mainly involves the use of Energy Twister, as well as creating one massive tornado with the Wicked Wind Rune to take out large groups of enemies.

Something to keep in mind for this build – the Energy Twisters created by the Etched Sigil will not gain all of the offensive boosts, so you will need to manually cast it as part of the rotation.

Besides Energy Twister, the other core Skills of this build are:

  • Arcane Torrent – will be channeled to enhance your Energy Twisters, create extra tornados, and increase your overall damage.
  • Wave of Force – used in large groups to massively increase the damage of your next Energy Twister.
  • Storm Armor – will give you some extra damage, reduce the Arcane Power cost of your Skills, and will give a massive defensive boost (when using the Halo of Karini).
  • Magic Weapon – boosts your damage while giving some extra survivability.
  • Teleport – gives you some mobility with an extra defense boost.



The Twisted Sword, Etched Sigil, Valthek’s Rebuke, and Ranslor’s Folly will all greatly enhance Energy Twister. The Mantle of Channeling, Andariel’s Visage, and Convention of Elements will boost your overall damage. The Aquila Cuirass, Stone Gauntlets, and Halo of Karini will give you more survivability.

Legacy of Dreams is an essential Legendary Gem to this build, as it will massively increase your offense and defense for having only legendary gear equipped. Bane of the Trapped and Bane of the Stricken will generally be the other best choices for Legendary Gems, both of which will further increase your damage.
