Ive been trying to make a build centered around this passive. Ive seen other builds that use it but i wonder if it will be viable. The main question I have is if vision will allow us to spam or near spam high mana cost abilities to make them effective. This is what i got :
Zombie Charger (Explosive beast) will be my main single target and aoe damage.
Sacrafice will be my secondary aoe damage. ( Used before i need to recast dogs or oh crap moments.)(Im not sold on this one..and maybe i could switch for something else..dunno)
The dogs and gar will be my only means of defense. I know i need some other sort of CC...but where do i put it.(Besides perhaps in the sacra slot.)
The other two long cds are nice when i use them but mainly there to keep vision running.
I could really use some help with this build. If im going somewhere help me make it happen, if you guys think its not viable thats cool too.
If you want to use sacrifice, I'd swap the voodoo rune for making more dogs. Otherwise, you can drop sacrifice and use an ability like poison dart that is super cheap. Assuming vision quest doesn't let you spam zombie charger nonstop, you could use this for good single target damage for almost free. Corpse spiders is another good cheap spell. You can use any rune you want with these, so if you find yourself wanting a snare or mana on cast or health on cast, your choice.
You also don't have to have a bunch of long cd summons to activate vision quest. You can use a defensive skill like spirit walk, soul harvest for damage, or a damage spell with a cooldown like wall of zombies or toad of hugeness. Also, if you want to use gruesome feast and are going to be blowing up your dogs, why not have them drop health globes?
Just some suggestions. I love vision quest and already have a build laid out. I'm not 100% sure on all the skills I want to use and won't know until I've had a fair amount of playtime, but I'm pretty certain on the majority of them. I'm mostly concerned about toad of hugeness being worthless vs bosses, wondering how good hex is, and having a hard time figuring out which zombie charger I'd like (probably bears). Also not sure if I'll like some of the spells like acid cloud. Good luck.
