Well, I'm certainly no pro, but I can try to give you some tips. I haven't had too much trouble so far in Normal mode. Died once, but I was experiementing with skills at the time.
- Primarily play as a ranged class, and try to kite. I use "Electrocute" as my main spell and "Acane Orbs" spell as my nuke. I try to just stay at ranged and let the Templar Follower tank the mobs.
- I selected all the defensive / healing abilities for the Templar. Basically just trying to use him as a tank and a health battery.
- Use defensive abilities when you get swarmed to get away. The 3 I am using right now are Frost Nova, the "blast" spell that I can't remember that pushes everyone back, and Diamond Skin for when I can't escape damage.
So basically, just keep moving. Move move move. The wizard can't take much damage so you absolutely can't sit in the pocket using aoe damage spells. You need to try to fight from far away.
Use your health pots if you're going to die. You seem to get a ton more of these then you really need so don't be afraid to be liberal with using them.
