Single Target dps god

This is my first build for Witch Doctor, it allows you to spam your most damaging spell (Firebats). By keeping 4 spells on cd you gain 300% increased mana regen from the passive, and with your Big Bad Voodoo down at the same time, you are free to spam away. The Idea of the build is to maintain high mana regen to spam firebats while still having the suvivability to not die every 3 seconds. I would recommend giving the build a try on boss fights and tell me what you think. With this build I've managed to out dps my friends who are 5-10 lvls ahead of me.

what do you do when you run into fire immune/physical immune? or fire immune by itself?

If the target is Fire immune I can simply switch out to Spirit Barrage or Locust Swarm depending on which immunities the mob has. Both are a good substitute.

Please show me how you can prove this.

I think you could do better with soul harvest and 3 other longer cooldowns, so you dont have to spend all your time activiating the cooldowns constantly. like gargantuan zombie dogs and zfetish army.

That and poison dart seems like a waste if u are going to be running with the 300% mana regen, would be better to swap it for locusts and the firebats i really don't think they match up to the damage output of acid cloud. sure its 220% up front, but the cloud is 100% and keeps ticking for 75% constantly to everything in the area still. you can spam the hell out of it.

it's better aoe, and stronger single target.

idk the acid cloud just seems better overall.

haunt would be a great single target option as well, especially if u set it to the 288% over 2 seconds rune.

Kind of late. Already known. It is OP. Might get slight nerfed.

Yea you are missing something - in gameplay options, you can change it to Elective Mode which lets you put any skills you have on any of the hotbuttons

Yeah I agree. What I'm doing on my Doc is a mana regen build (similar to this one explained here) with Spirit Barrage as my MAIN SPELL. No darts. With the passive that returns me mana for every spirit barrage used and rune that returns even more mana, I can use Spirit Barrage as my main spell which gives INSANE single target DPS.

And then there's Acid Cloud spam that I like to combo with big bad voodoo mana regeneration. It beats the crap out of monsters. Insane spell spam
