Background[edit | edit source]

Studies for a Wizard, in how to fight more efficiently without resorting to spells.
Skill Design[edit | edit source]
This skill is something of a mystery, since there's little else to indicate that the Wizard would be using weapons for damage. It is known that the Wizard's equipment will have some bearing on her spell damage, so perhaps some skills derive their damage from the weapon damage, and this skill would boost that damage?
This would've been useful in Diablo 2, what with all the "unique" builds, including the melee Sorceress. The question is if that kind of diversity will exist in Diablo 3, or else this skill seems useless. On the other hand, it could be Blizzard taking the "melee Sorceress" to a whole new level with Damage Resistance and Spectral Blade...
