Probs best PvP build I've seen posted yet. Good work.
Mind you only good for arena style 'last man standing' battles. (aka proper battles) with team. Otherwise too defensive and tactical for the (horrible imo) plan that blizzard has to make arena just "fights to get the most kills" spamfest with respawn.
I am sure I will not truly know how I want to play my WD until the actual game comes out. Something tells me that a spirit build will be a strong choice.

I used to think Frightening Aspect was a good idea, but then I thought about it. You drop your aoe fear, your opponents run around in circles for four seconds. In that time you use those four seconds to get away thus delaying the time for your opponents to attack you even longer. At most I can only see you getting 2-4 seconds worth of use from the armor buff, considering that you're fighting against ranged classes. WD's have so much slow that I can't see Frightening Aspect being viable at all while fighting melee classes, by the time they catch up to you your buff will have expired. I'm sure it could prove to be useful in some cases where you're fighting against a high burst damage ranged team comp, but for the most part it seems counterproductive that a skill that makes your enemies unable to attack for a few seconds gives you armor. I feel like Face of Death, Stalker and Phobia would definitely be more useful in your average pvp match.
this build cannot kill a top-geared barb. AC/Manitou wont get it done.
Pyro is better anyways than manitou.
And lob blob is kinda dumb and worthless, honestly Corpse Bomb is 1000% better.
That build is a little retarded IMO... But since this was written last year and this guy has no experience playing that build lol.. Can't hate too hard.
This is the build I was facerolling with:
I didn't have much success with Haunt... Maybe it's because of my play style? Or maybe it's because I only do ~95k DPS without too much CD or CC? I dunno. This style worked well for me against a Monk and 2 Barbs.
It's super fun and Bears do pretty damn well against Monks and Barbs when turned into little piggies lol. I have to switch to Corpse Bomb for DH's. They never get close enough for the Bears to hit em.
Cast a few WoS to get RoE giving you mana. Plague em, Jinx em, Bear em down or WoS, whatever that moment called for. If they're not dead for whatever reason, Horrify or SW. Jinx should be back up if you didn't kill them. Rinse and repeat.
look at my skorn, that is prob the biggest reason why.
Haunt with a high dps Skorn is so raw and overpowered, unless you are playing against another Wd. Again, IAS will not help your Haunt dmg.
Atleast this is what I have gathered from vanguishing countless noobs on PTR.
