I will take up the gauntlet, drunk, from memory without actually looking at your templates.
You spread yourself too thin on points. No GM stun, root or mage debuffs.
Training fire resist on a character with a fire dispell? What are you worried about, fessor and channy DDs?
Other than that it's little things that suggest you haven't really sat down and thought about how wizards are most efficiently built, and presumably played, points seemingly thrown here and there etc. I haven't used someone else's template for anything since about 05, but I bet 2/3 of the guys critiquing your build here would come up with almost exactly what I would produce for a solo wizard. Idiosyncrasies and aesthetic bias aside.
Basing this off the impression I had when reading the OP a few days ago, but didn't feel the need to post then.
edit - What a mean and wordy drunk I am.
Maybe you should actually read the templates: I have stun, root and mage debuffs. I have 20 points over from the builds to put into what you want, for example GM stun or root. Why I usually dont go all the way to 40 points in stun and root has been explained in this thread.
Yes fire DD or fire DoT when your dispell is on timer isnt exactly uncommon, but if you think its a waste of 19 points by all means atleast put a single point to get +11 fire resist.

Ajushi said some things, that I had in mind, but there are other, which not everyone knows and I want it to stay like that (I made a promise to one of the most skilled wizard I've ever played with). Judging by the builds Dyson created so far, I respect him as a very experienced template builder. He is a type of person, who actually shares his knowledge with others, so you should take his criticism seriously and you could learn a thing or two.
Anyway on thing I can say, using procs on irekei wizard is not a very good idea, I would strongly advise +15 bleeding resist on a weapon (at least on the offhand). Wizard has no problems with doing dmg, so I don't see why you sacrifice his survivability for it. As a mage (especially without GM stun and GM root), you want to stay at max range from your target as much as possible and using does is quite the opposite.
Dyson isnt Dyson, its Skitzer. I recall a bird scout that I killed over and over with all kinds of builds, but apparantly Im mixing him up with someone else since he claims that he doesnt play scouts. Just so you dont mix him up with Dyson, R.I.P.
I have never gotten my hands on bleeding resist throwing daggers with >=+150% atr , and I use throwing daggers if i can wield weapons in both hands. 2 weapons is ofcourse for +atr, allowing me to hit everything in off stance (+50%dmg) after my 2*0.2 sec debuffs, and what I like about throwing daggers is that you can actually kill things with it. If you are low on mana, just hit him with your daggers and he goes down. Trust me, its more useful than you think (Ive had this argument before about proccing throwing daggers and I showed them how useful it actually is).
Resist khans on irekei wizard is also a good choice, depends what you use him for, small scale PvP, GvG or solo PvP and of course it depends on what gear you get your hands on. If i feel like I should opt for more safety I look for resists, but... I almost never feel that way.
What you dont seem to understand is that a wizard played properly is not like any other mage. If you try to stay "as far away as possible" you will get kited and wont get much done. A wizard needs to get to medium distance to land debuffs, SoS and 2 nukes, then get out of there and if the target isnt dead, repeat. A wizard has a little something called teleport. 2 of them. And invisibility (only PR 20 now so bleh...).
"You should take his critizism seriously and you could learn a thing or two" - yes Im sure I can extract alot of information from statements of the sort: "your builds are abysmal, Im better than you". Since Im an adult, I kindly asked him to refrain from childish pickering and explain with any sort of argument that actually touches any of my templates. He just kept going like a child so I dont think he is much to listen to. BTW, I dont think anyone is much more experienced than me in creating templates, Ive done it extensively since 2004, played in many good guilds and used them with success.
I didn't play any of the playtocrush previews. The only preview I played was this last one, for about an hour. I've never actively played a bird scout, I'm a much much more knowledgeable player than you, and I'm willing to help if you admit that you need it.
Abysmal Wizard Templates, then I'll rip them apart for you. kdeal?
Grow up kid.
