The Fastest method for farming Paragon 100 and 1.0.4 Legendary items! I have received a lot of support on the forums and requests for a simple farming video showing the optimal method for farming Paragon 100 and 1.0.4 legendaries. I have been testing a lot of variations to CM/WW/Archon builds and currently use the build shown in the video. Thanks to some new 1.0.4 Legendaries I was able to reach RANK 8 in the US for Unbuffed-DPS. This video is intended to be entertaining, informational, and help keep some faith in the Wizard class after the 1.0.4 critical mass nerf.

Q: ERMAHGERD this is only because of gear and your parent's credit card!
A: Thanks for the question BruleCory. Yes, this is completely gear dependent. I was only able to drop skills like Frost Nova once hitting that "sweet-spot" of about 100k un-buffed DPS.
Q: Why don't you use the new CM 1.0.4 Builds?
A: I tested the following builds post-1.0.4 including:
Most of these builds did fine and I suggest you try them out yourself.
They did all lack one thing: Speed.
Forked-Lightning Build http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator...
1.0.4 Twister Build http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator...
Storm Chase Destruction Build http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator...
Q: Why are you using Galvanizing Ward?
A: Normally I suggest using Blur in this passive slot... but again... if everything melts before hitting you, why not extend your Energy Armor duration which is pretty important if you are staying in Archon form for an entire farming run.
Q: How much do you die using this noob Archon build?
A: I average roughly zero deaths per Act 3 run from Ghom to Azmodan.
