Both my witch doctor & wizard are just about level 60 and I am preparing to go try out inferno. I like the casters so much I can't decide which one should be my main. My friends (all melee characters) tell me that act 2 inferno is significantly harder then act 1, so I should be gearing for act 2. I have several questions about the gear for both toons:
My inferno build for wizard: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/wizard#UlQRSO!YdW!bZZbZc
My inferno build for witch doctor: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/witch-doctor#afRXdT!bZW!acabZc
1) Are the desirable stats for both wizard and witch doctor roughly the same? For example, should the wizard be getting more
+ resist all to take advantage of
energy armor + prismatic armor? The reason I ask is because I might want to switch my main from wizard to witch doctor, and I don't want to spend more gold to re-gear.
2) What sort of stats should I be aiming for to be able to survive? I see people saying that melee char require at least +500 resist all, and 30K health, but I am a caster that does not want to get one shotted. Obviously, the more def stats the better, but what should I be aiming for?
3) How much damage is an average number for a wizard and witch doctor? Is it more effective to be going a 2H, or 1H + offhand?
4) I have a budget of 1.5 million. Would that be adequate to gear one character for act 2 inferno?
