My Witch Doctor Build : Weapons and Armor

Hi I would just like to know if its good idea to pump only Intel for your witch doctor " topaz gemz" for pants, body armour, shoulders etc. everything but helm and your primary weapon

what kind of gemz are good for a witch doctor to apply to your helm? does crit actually work with poison darts if i were to put the green gems on my primary

and is it a good idea to pump my witch with rings having more vit than intel?

what are the basic rules on building a with doctor, thanks guys

I think you'll want plenty of vitality when it comes to gems and intelligence/weapon damage when it comes to other stats on the gear. That's what I do at least. I also socket a purple on my helm especially because that gives you the biggest boost.

Vitality is -extremely- important in Hell and up, because stuff just hits extremely hard. For instance, the -normal- phase beasts in Act 3 of Hell hit you for 7-9k. Plenty of the mobs in Inferno hit you for 15-20k as well.

As great as the Witch Doctor is at kiting and CC, and as great as you might be, you're -going- to get hit. It'll happen. And if you can't survive even a couple of wayward arrows / the ticks you take moving out of an AoE, you'll be little more than a smear on the ground for inferno and the later stages of Hell.

You didn't just ask for expansions in the first week after the game's release, did you?

Alright I will try my best to prepare for what im going to get myself into soon enough..

Sorry what is CC? lol i know that is a terrible question to ask.. ok what about adding green gems to weapons increasing critical chances? does critical work with the witch doctors primary attack " poisong darts, frogs etc"?
