Diablo® III

NZ AUS Please help with advice for my WD

Hey all WDs need some gearing advice for Cookie Cutter build. I have been playing for a little while with WD. I'm enjoying it but I'm struggling to find some key pieces of gear like Tasker or a decent ammy. I just found some Zuni boots but I'm sure i read the 4 set bonus has complications for the build or has this been fixed in last patch??
Which weapon/ off hand should i be aiming for??
Which sets are best for this build?
Also what should i reroll and for what?
Paragon point allocation.
Which gear should i replace ASAP?

Hard to know which info out there is current after patches and what not.
Thank you . Any advice would be appreciated.

I'm no expert but I will give you the following:
At the moment there are 2 kinds of basic builds that are considered the most desirable and they are a pets build and a jades build.
Jades build requires 5 jade set pieces plus a rorg plus a helm called quetzacotl?? to be pulled off its best.
Pets can be slightly easier to gear up and play but this largely depends on what drops for you and what you gamble. Pets build needs a mask if jeram, the t&t gloves as you said, and the serpent mojo to be most effective.
Go check out the wd forum for a lot of diff builds and varieties of them.
As for your ammy that will depend on what build you run. +element damage, crit damage and crit chance are a good idea of what u will need

Hope this helps a little

I'm running a Tall Man's Finger build using fire and I do T2 on HC pretty easily.
It can be run on softcore as well and doesn't need to be as tanky, also you use magefists, not Taskers.

I run a fire build solo in T5 and T6 in with a usual group. Have a MoJ, but currently not using it unless I get a TnT which seems elusive. Over 6,000 shards and counting.

I find SoJ beats TMF due to the increased elite damage.

Builds are quite varied for WD, if you have SMK you might wanna drop paragon points in CDR so that you have perma BBV.

For pets, physical damage gives the best damage output. Don't match Fetish Army with FS as its bugged. FS fetishes will supersede your FA. Unless you want the added security of a fetish army by your side when you start a game or die.

You use TMF with a fire SOJ, no need for Royal Ring.

Hey mate, haven't seen you for a while. The other posters have covered things well, but I would add that you don't need all the specialised gear in order to run pets. Think of tnt etc. as nice to haves that'll increase your damage.

Looking at your build, I would suggest:

Drop fetish army. As jtcdgroup says, it doesn't play nicely with sycophants. FA isn't worth using without Zuni 4, and even then the only advantage over sycophants is that the fetishes have more survivability on high torments. Consider a skill like piranhado in place of FA. It provides crowd control and damage.

Try to get more attack speed. It'll add to fetish damage, and since the build has no mana cost, has no disadvantage.

Consider using midnight feast instead of gruesome feast. More dogs = a good thing, and GF's mana benefit is no use to you.

Cheers G. My game time is limited these days and getting a T&T to drop is like getting blood out of a stone. prob more then 10k shards on gloves and the !@#$% Kadala wont give it up. Im gonna go sulk and go back to wiz I think. Thanks for advice though. PS WD is fun though especially pet build. Would love to go jade but Helm wont drop or some other key pieces.

I'm in the same boat over 10k shards and no TnT. You do not want the Jade helm, as you need the spot open for the Quetzalcoatl to optimise the build. You need 5 pcs Jade set and RoRG to complete it.
