**NOTICE: NO LONG VIABLE IN PATCH 2.0.1 ENTERING REAPER OF SOULS**
THE ARCHON GUIDE - compiled by Jaetch
I'm pleased to announce that after working on this video for over three months, I finally have something to show.
This is a video guide designed to help players who are new to (or confused about) the Archon wizard build. Most experienced players may find much of the content in this guide very familiar, but hopefully there are some elements in the guide that can still prove to be enlightening.

- On occasion, pop-ups will show up on the screen. Feel free to pause the video to read them as they act as supplementary information to what I'm talking about.
- I speak very fast and I apologize in advance for that (I've considered subtitling this; perhaps in the future if absolutely necessary).
- There are some things I intentionally left out of the video because they pertain to elements not specific to the Archon build. If I covered absolutely everything that remotely deals with the build, this video would be as long as "Gone With the Wind" and I'd be locked up in an asylum by now.
- The Archon build variant used in this video will no longer be viable in patch 2.0.1 and in the expansion, Reaper of Souls. I will likely make an updated video sometime in the future. No idea when, though.
Thanks for watching (or sharing, criticizing, loving, hating, etc.)!
