Hey folks, I wanted to share my control wizard build with you all! I play mostly my cw, i used to play my cw as a buffer but with when mod 10 came out i switch into pure AOE dmg dealer. My CW named Rocket, if you wanted to know ^^

Race for Control Wizard


I personally likes human, for the looks also for the 3 more heroic feat points and also 3% defense which good (+2 Int) = (18 Int 16 Cha)


If you want more power go with this race as you get 3% more power and crit chance also 5% more healing from any healing spell and ability. These race stat is awesome but for me i don’t like to see my character looking like a lizard XD (+2 Int +2Cha) = (18 Int 18 Cha)


This race can buff and debuff, when the target is at below half health you deal 5% more damage which is amazing and also this class can reduce the target power by 5% there you are helping the tank to tank the impossible ^^ (+2 Int +2Cha) = (18 Int 18 Cha)

Moon Elf & Sun Elf

This race also good for CW but it only increases your action point gain. (+2 Int +2Cha) = (18 Int 18 Cha)

Why should i play Control Wizard?

If you like AOE dmg and control (of course ^^) then you should go with this class. This class is the only AOE dps class in game, thank’s to our abilities and power that can control as well as deal lots and lots of dmg if you have the right build. You might want to focus on your crit chance and crit severity as well as power.

What Are The Best Enchantments For CW?

Well, the BiS weapon enchantment for CW for now are Vorpal and Dread. But i would suggest you to go with Dread. For your offense slot go with Azure or Brutal enchantment, azure gives you critical strike and brutal gives you power and critical strike. For defense slot there’s only one that’s good for CW. It’s draconic enchantment, this enchantment give you hit points, defense, and life steal these stat are all you need for your defense slot. And last but not least, for your armor enchantment you need at least 2 armor enchantment. Why 2 armor enchantment? you need to be flexible, when you solo content as you know CW is so squicy you should go with negation at max for better dmg resist and if you go to dungeon go with soulforged but if you don’t have enough AD just go with soulforged until you can afford to upgrade or buy negation ^^

What are The Best Companion For CW?

I personally using Fire Archon (summon companion), Air Archon, Siege Master, Erinyes, and Wild hunter. If you have cambion mangus replace it with wild hunter, more crit severity more dmg you deal at critical strike. Of course you need to slot bonding runestone to your summon companion. Try to upgrade your bonding runestone to rank 12 and will be WOW by how incredible the AOE dmg you deal ^^

What are The Best Mount Insignia Bonus For CW?

Go with Protector’s camaraderie and Assasin’s covenant, this two insignia bonus will increase your power which mean more dmg you deal ^^

What are The Best Artifacts For CW?

For the neck, belt and artifact power set go with valindra set for more control or orcus set for more dmg. For the weapon artifact you can use twisted set or relic weapon set. But, don’t have to rush module 11 coming this month. for the artifacts power i have 7 of em, sigil of devoted (for solo content), wheel of element (main artifact when you in dungeon especially in boss fight), lantern of revelation ( can be use as main artifact for solo content or clearing trash mobs in dungeon), sigil or controller, shard of orcus, shard of valindra, and sigil of great weapon.

What is The best Paragon Path?

You want more AOE dmg go with spellstorm, as this paragon path has storm spell which can deal great amount of dmg whenever u cast spell and its AOE ^^ (more dmg from storm spell).

    Isn’t Frozen Power Transfer still glitched? I haven’t heard anything about it being fixed and now able to stack correctly.
    Why pick Erinyes over earth Archon? Everything I’ve read on it and Crit Severity says that the 10% CS with 1005 crit chance equals out to less damage then what a Earth archon would give you.
    Soulforged I can understand but why would anyone want to put a Negation on a CW? Wouldn’t you need to get hit first to get the stack of defense from it?

    • February 18, 2017 at 12:38 am

      you know why player who play hr or cw using t dread and t vorpal instead of the other weapon enchantment? cause those two enchantment increase your crit severity which you can deal a lot of damage. I don’t like how earth archon works, i rather go with wild hunter companion since we a caster and can cast a skill like non stop.

      you need to be flexible to play this game, like i said when u solo content use trans negation for better defends since mobs hits hard but if you can’t afford just go with soulforged. And yes you get hit first and u get the stack of dmg resistance, you should try it out. if you wanna try those enchantment you can copy your toon over and over and get plenty ad on preview and testing it out what ever you need to test

        But doesn’t T.Vorpal and T.Dread give way more crit severity than Erinyes? From the math I’ve been seeing that 10% CS doesn’t add up to 10% damage increase.

        Also wouldn’t Darks in defense be more beneficial for a CW because of more life steal?

        • February 21, 2017 at 1:58 am

          you know how crit severity works, right? so crit severity works when you deal a crit strike dmg into the enemy, it increases your dmg on critical strike brah, so in order for crit severity to works, stack on azure or brutal on your offense slot. you need to hv at least 13k-15k crit strike so every dmg you deal you deal with crit strike.. that means more crit severity more dmg on critical strike! if you don’t want to spent any ad or stuff go to preview server and you can test by your self, and use your combat log to see the difference.

          you need defends as well, if you lack of defends you don’t help your party. May be you don’t have rank 12 enchantment, if you have draconic rank 12 then use it, u dont need lots of life steal, beside there are certain mount insignia bonus that could heals you..

            Loving your condescendingness. Yes I know how Critical Severity works, I’ve read dozen of posting about it in this game, especially when talking about CWs, and even seen the math all of which say that at 100% crit chance the best you would get is 5% increase in damage.

            Defense is good and all but it’s still not going to make a big difference if you can’t heal yourself and with Draconics (even at rank 12) you’re not building enough Defense to make much, if at all, any difference.

            Would be better off going all Azures or all Dark

          • February 21, 2017 at 8:17 am

            you can also mix azure and dark at ur defense slot 🙂 i use draconic on all of my defence slot and it works perfectly :), u dont need to hv 4.2k lifesteal if u slot 6 dark rank 12 on def slot even if u only hv 3k u should be alright and u can get defence stat from ur gear i only hv 5k defends and i can survive fighting all giants in SOMI or even solo big HE in stronghold with my current build..
            i run a cn with my high crit cw build and i was about 100k diff on dmg deaal with 4k gwf high crit build, of course we cant beat gwf.. and if you have 100% crit chance you should deal lots of dmg with crit severity and i hv around 120% of crit severity plus t dread.. like i said bro go to preview server and see the diffrence.. new changes coming soon with all WEs buffed up.. even some of the WEs can deal plenty of dmg now, they still cant beat T vorpal and T dread, when you use these 2 WEs make sure you have high crit chance because if you dont its useless.. 🙂 if you dont trust this article u can just go to preview server to test it out, it’s free u wont lose ur ad or zen etc.. 🙂
