Can someone point me to the Batman build? I mean the wizard one just incase you don't understand what I mean. Thanks everyone.

There isn't one. "Batman" refers to the idea that, like Batman in vs. fights, a wizard always wins given time to prepare. You want this guide (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=18500), as the iconic example of the concept.

Basically, any wizard is a Batman wizard, if playing to the class's strengths. It doesn't require a build, just an approach: think about what you're likely to deal with, anticipate the rest, and choose your spells accordingly. Do all the things no one else can, like freezing monsters in place, causing them to attack one another, teleporting the party across continents, etc.

Batman is not a specific build per se, but rather a term for a certain type of wizard coined by the Logic Ninja in his guide to building effective wizards (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=18500).

Speaking of the Logic Ninja, it appears that another Ninja has already got there before me. :smallamused:

You need a black cape with a pointy-eared cowl, a secret cave, a freakishly awesome vehicle pool, and an adopted kid who follows you everywhere.:smallbiggrin: You also need to have access to everything necessary to defeat any enemy given a standard preparation time.
