    single weapon fighting is just for defensive fighting and that's it. I do not melee at all.

    for high reaper I bring a DPS friend along and tank instead
    Interesting build, looks nice, I'm one of those who would never have thought about someone tanking on a pure Wiz.

    But... is this damage enough to hold aggro while tanking?

    I assume it is, but even with your whole party running dethreat gear and 1k+ spellpower, it still seems...surprising.

    You've obviously done it, just wondering if I'm missing something.

    aggro is a mess in this game right now. methods for really holding aggro are few. you will notice i take celestial mandate with unyielding sentinel. On top of this i do run a total of 380% melee threat via the icon of the bitterwind and the celestial emerald ring it does help, and keeping rend the soul up and tossing in necrotic ray does help if i really need to keep it. i have to play very actively to keep aggro where dps is high and always on the boss like KT and VOD. its not as bad an issue in LOB or demigod when the dps keeps busy not fighting the one boss all the time.

    not gunna lie, ive lost aggro plenty, but when i super try hard, i can keep it. good question.

    DC's have gotten to the low 150's now, and am able to get Int to 142 if everything is perfect in DC casting mode.
    Hello Zappy,
    Thanks for sharing your experience on wizard.
    Can you post a breakdonw on how you reach this amount of CON / PRR / MRR ?
    You did it for INT.

    i'm stuck around 300 prr and 200 mrr (i have both comp feat, just missing 2 more Dgnome lives)

    Thanks

    hmm, gather same gearset, augments and rare filigrees setup, make all heroic, racial and epic pastlives, make all favor that gives you +hp and +intimidate, fill at least full tank tree in reaper enhances (filling caster and melee trees will give you additional hp (that what i myself miss - filled just 2 reaper trees of three), on tanking swap to Unyelding Sentinel ED and choose what stance fits you best, turn on EDF, Zombie form on, set up right all five twists of fate, cast Master's Touch and Tenser's, check potions and yugopotions - and then look at chars window to check CON/PRR/MRR - must be same as Zappy posted.. at least that works for me ))
