Diablo® III

I got to lvl60 - damage / build questions

First off - the whole 3x mana regen passive... doesnt give me mana back very quicky and i msot certainly cant live with no basic attack. Plus dmg seems to be lower than good use of poison cloud and less reliable.

Why in videos can people spam it as much as they want when 4 skils on cd? they have gear for it?

second ! I feel like my dmg is really low - but more importantly if i take say splinter darts that i never regain mana - so im pretty much just using my mana pool then im down to dart and maybe one other skil everyso often (v rarely)

i dont ahve 30% + mana cost passive!

Finally is the CC the only real reason to take a wd over a wiz? So im a CC machine with low dmg for mf runs? :(

kinda sad! (btw im on act4 hell so iv played a fair bit)

Well I'm certainly not as far as you so my experience may be irrelevant compared to act 4 hell considering I'm in act 1 nightmare. Anyway, I use the Spiritual Attunement and Spirit Walk with the Honored Guest rune. 15 second cooldown mana steroid (or 13 with Spirit Vessel passive). Don't have much mana problems with this set up.

Hi Ghost, in your gameplay options menu there is a checkbox called 'Elective Mode.' When you select that option you are able to choose any six skills you like from any of your skill groups. You can also bind buttons other than 1-4.

Hope this helps.

This is the build im using, the left and right mouse buttons give plenty of damage, and my 1-2-3-4 spells provide great mana/life regeneration and good CC to keep control of the fights. Also those 4 spells have quite fair cooldowns, so my passive (300% mana regeneration) is pretty much always active, allowing me to spam right mouse button. I hope this guide helps anyone in need of advise on playing the most skilled class in diablo :)

I disagree, why would you take 2 damage reduction abilities when you have no pets? What a waste IMO. Swap out Mass Confusion with Gargantuan and get a tank so u can turn ur passive abilities towards DPS or mana regen.

Also you dont even use an AOE poison attack so it pretty much makes Bad Medicine passive worthless, imo. What ur gona single target everything to reduce their damage? Locust Swarm is barely a conical attack so even that barely makes it useful.

I know to each its own but it seems like u rolled a WD but rather play a Barb. lol
