Wizard passives

From Diablo Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Characters in Diablo 3 get to choose three passive skills, with the slots becoming available at level 10, 20, and 30. The passive skills themselves become available every few levels, with the first ones at lvl 10 and the last at level 60.

Wizard Passive Skills[edit | edit source]

There are half a dozen fairly popular Wizard passives, and half a dozen others that are hardly used at all in the end game.

For Softcore Wizards the damage boosting passives are most popular, with Cold Blooded and Glass Cannon the top two. Hardcore Wizards tend more to the defensive bonuses, with Unstable Anomaly, Blur, and Galvanizing Ward the three most popular.

See all Wizard skills sorted by use rate on the ranking page in Diablo3Ladders.com.

Development[edit | edit source]

  • See the Wizard skill archive for the full list, with descriptions, of all active and passive skills that have been removed from the game during development.

By the July 2011 Press Event, the skill system had once again been completely redesigned. The traits system was scrapped, and replaced by a new version of passive skills, but still separate from the active skills. Although 9 of the Wizard's traits were turned into passives, 23 of them were removed, and 6 passives were brand new.

The list of Wizard passives shown at the press event is likely still in development and may change before game release.

Not all passive skills have stayed in the game. Many were removed during the Beta test.
