The Diablo Immortal release has finally arrived, with Blizzard’s new mobile Diablo game hitting the Apple App Store and Android Google Play Store. If you’ve only just downloaded the game and considering which class to play, might we suggest having a read of our Diablo Immortal Best Class Tier List before you proceed further?
Assuming you’ve already dived into the game and pledged your allegiance to the Wizard class, you might be wondering what is the best Wizard build in Diablo Immortal. With this in mind, we’ve pulled together this guide which attempts to answer that question with a specific focus on solo play. That means we’re looking at the best build for farming the game’s Bounties, Elder Rifts, Lairs, and Side Quests as a solo player.
If you’re looking for the best Wizard build for PvP, Raids (Helliquary and Kion’s Ordeal), or Dungeons played in a group, you might want to check out a different guide more tailored to that specific criteria. Whilst it’s possible that these builds might be similar, there are always going to be slight variations based on the activity you’re playing (especially PvP).
This build guide also assumes you have played the game sufficiently to level up your character to Level 60, by which point you should be able to gather the associated skills, legendary items, legendary gems and set items without too much trouble.

What is the best Wizard build in Diablo Immortal
Despite being a mobile-first title, Diablo Immortal is still fairly robust in its approach as a loot-based game. As such players still have plenty of choices to make when assembling their character, including skills, gear and gems to equip all in the name of making your character stronger in the face of unspeakable hellish monsters.
There are countless different ways you can choose to maximise the potential of the class, but if you’re playing solo the best Wizard build in Diablo Immortal is the Firestorm Battlemage Wizard Build.
The Wizard, at its heart, is a class that uses ranged attacks. However, unlike the glass cannon Demon Hunter class, Wizards can get a bit closer to the enemy to wield elemental magic up close. You’ll primarily be group enemies together with crowd control techniques before dealing high Area of Effect (AoE) damage. You’ll be using Arcane Wind combined with Meteor to create a Firestorm and deal 50% more damage. And should things get hairy you’ll be able to use teleport to create some distance.
Best Skills For Wizard in Diablo Immortal
Wizards have 2 Primary Attacks to choose from. For the best Wizard Firestorm Battlemage build, we would suggest going with the following:
• Magic Missile – Strike an enemy for damage and gain Hardened launch a missile of magic energy, dealing damage
(Ultimate Ability) Ice Missile – Enhance Magic Missile with frost for 12 seconds, increasing its damage and slowing the movement of affected enemies.
In addition to the Primary attack, Wizards have up to 12 skills to choose from, and may equip up to 4 of them at time. If you’re looking to build the best Wizard Firestorm Battlemage build whilst playing solo, we suggest picking these skills:
• Lightning Nova (Unlocked at level 3) – Hurl 10 balls of lightning away from you in all directions, dealing damage as they pass outward and again as they return to your new location. Limit 6 hits per target. Hits 2 and beyond on a target deal only 30% damage.
• Teleport (Unlocked at Level 18) – Teleport forward. Maximum 3 charges.
• Arcane Wind (Unlocked at Level 20) – Unleash a blast of wind in a direction, dealing damage and knocking away enemies. Charging longer increases range, knock away distance, and damage. Deal 50% increased damage to Burning enemies.
• Meteor (Unlocked at Level 41) – Summon an immense meteor that plummets from the sky, dealing damage and Stunning all enemies in the impact area for 3 seconds. The ground it hits is scorched, Burning enemies dor damage over 6 seconds.
Best Legendary Items for Wizard in Diablo Immortal
Whilst you’ll start out with common, magic and rare items, you’ll eventually want to transition your primary items slots to Legendary items. These powerful pieces of equipment not only have higher stats, but also provide legendary powers to help enhance your existing skills. Plus, they can be socketed with Legendary gems too.
When assembling the best Wizard Firestorm Battlemage build, we’d opt for these Legendary items:
• Head – Lyan’s Resonant Wisdom
• Shoulders – Shoulders of the Cataclysm
• Chest – Starcaller’s Drapery
• Legs – Riftdancer’s Stride
• Main Hand Weapon – Windshaper
• Off Hand Weapon – The Siphon
Best Set Items for Wizard in Diablo Immortal
You’ve got your legendary items equipped, now we need to think about your secondary gear slots, and like Diablo 3, we’re best equipping Set Items. These powerful armor pieces are earned once you reach max character level and can be found dropping in Dungeons from the final boss.
If you’ve never played Diablo before, set items work like this. If you have 2 items of the same set, you’ll gain a buff. This buff increases depending on whether you have 2, 4 or 6 items from the set in question. You can also mix and match with other sets if you wish. Unlike Diablo 3, Set Items won’t conflict with your Legendary Items, which makes it slightly less convoluted (thankfully). So you need to just focus on having the best Set Bonuses to augment your class build.
For the Best Wizard Firestorm Battlemage Build you ideally want to combine 4 pieces from the Issatar Imbued set, with 2 pieces from the Windloft Perfection set. Bonuses for both sets can be found on the table below:
|Issatar Imbued Set||
Windloft Perfection Set
|2/6 Bonus||Each time you defeat an enemy, you gain 30% increased Movement Speed for 2 seconds.||Gain Thousand Winds, increasing your Movement Speed by 15%. Thousand Winds deactivates for 3 seconds if you take damage.|
|4/6 Bonus||Damage dealt increased by 2.5% for every 5% increase in your Movement Speed, up to a maximum damage increase of 25%.||Increases your damage done by 20% while Thousand Winds is active.|
|6/6 Bonus||Each time you defeat an enemy, you have a 10% chance to gain an orbiting soul orb for 10 seconds, which deals 263 damage when it passes through an enemy. Cannot gain a soul orb more often than once every 40 seconds.||Gain a shield that makes you immune to damage 5 times while Thousand Winds is active. Cannot gain this shield more often than once every 40 seconds.|
And below you’ll find the names of the items you can grab and where you’ll get them from. Remember, you only need 4 pieces from the Issatar Imbued Set and 2 pieces from the Windloft Perfection Set.
|Issatar Imbued Set|
|Issatar At Rest||Neck||Mad King’s Breach|
|Issatar Undone||Ring 1||Cavern of Echoes|
|Issatar Enraged||Ring 2||Pit of Anguish|
|Issatar’s Open Hand||Hands||Forgotten Tower|

Best Normal Gems for Wizard in Diablo Immortal
We appreciate it might take some time to acquire those legendary gems (more on them in a minute) so for the sake of covering our bases, here’s a really quick guide on the best normal gems.
• Red Gems – Pick Tourmaline over Ruby, as a damage buff is better than a life buff.
• Blue Gems – Pick Sapphire over Aquamarine, as an armor penetration buff is preferable to an armor buff.
• Yellow Gems – Opt for Topaz over Citrine. Although don’t worry about it too much since they both offer pretty rubbish stat boosts.
Best Legendary Gems for Wizard in Diablo Immortal
Although the game contains plenty of normal gems (red, blue and yellow) to socket into your gear, it’s the game’s legendary gems which offer the best attribute bonuses and power boosts to your character. You can slot a maximum of 6 and you earn these in all manner of ways, but mostly from completing Elder Rifts.
Legendary Gems are also split between different tiers. 1 star and 2 star legendary gems are generally more common to acquire, whilst 5 star are much harder and offer great bonuses when slotted into your primary gear stots.
Below is a list of the best starter legendary gems (a mix of 1 and 2 star) as well as the best outright gems to slot into your primary gear slots.
|Starter Legendary Gems||Best Legendary Gems|
Blessing of the Worthy
Chip of Stone Flesh
|Fervant Fang||Howler’s Call|
|Zod Stone||Seeping Bile|
