I would guess he likes building toons what is driving him atm Im not sure maybe he wants to play these type toons and he is building on what races he has. Maybe the lack of posted UR builds and wants to improve that deficiency. We won't know till he answers but does it really matter?
Makes sense considering that UR races might see some more use now. When I started I managed to make only one UR character and then I had plenty of BUR races to choose from. Now the evil admins reduced the chances of getting a BUR race, which makes UR races more frequently seen.
Eh, thought the guy was doing a pretty good job of encouraging more UR race acceptance. As someone who sucks at building anything, I think it's admirable that a newbie is working out different plans for different ABCD classes, without begging builds off vets
No Greater Ruin? I took that and backed off on LL focus in some of the schools as it didn't seem that critical for my HC Wiz. I'd start with 6 Str and 10 Wis as at least that gets you +1 Will save, not that your saves are going to be anything to write home about anyway.
Yeah, evo focus without getting it maxed (=74 INT) makes little difference, so get LSF trans over evo. Being a disintegration sniper is so much fun, especially when you have 3 additional DC from ED. It's like boom, boom, boom, boom. Also as you will probably won't venture into abyss with this wiz, you should specialise in necromancy and bar divination and enchantment.
But all in all, just drop the wiz and play sorc/pariah. The power difference between these and a wiz is not even funny.
