The classic melee Sorceress returns in Diablo 3, this time as The Melee Wizard. Whereas the melee Sorceress in Diablo 2 was only viable through Nightmare difficulty, the melee Wizard in Diablo 3 is viable all the way into Inferno. You won’t be able to high Monster Power levels, but with good gear you can get to the mid levels. It definitely won’t do comparative damage to the top DPS builds though.
When making this build, I was also curious about the Arcane Dynamo passive skill, so I integrated it into the build. You basically use Spectral Blades until Arcane Dynamo procs. Then use Meteor to take advantage of a huge damage bonus.
