You can't spam bears with a VQ build indefinitely, even with mana regen passives, unless you have a slow 2 hander and no IAS or something.

I currently am using a 2 hander, but i havent always ive never had mana be an issue unless something was off cd and i forget to use it. Also if your in inferno just sitting spamming bears without moving at all im impressed

Voodoo runed for mana is a much better alternative to VQ. Get your aspd to 2.1 or higher and youll get butcher down to 30% easy, 20 secs into the fight

So are you recommending just changing VQ for something else? Ok, how would you recommend the best/easiest way to get atk speed to 2.1+?

I seriously don't know why people still run VQ on inferno. You lock out 4 slots which could otherwise be used as escape mechanisms. Sure you can get 100k+ dps on bears. But dead dps is 0 dps.

Using voodoo with bears is not feasible for anything else other than bosses or certain unkiteable fast elites.

Rings, gloves, amulet all IAS. My 5501H/53-245OH (which i bought for 30k all up to test speed) does way more dps than my 900dps 2H.

I see your point with the zombie bears, do you have a different build youd recommend?

I am using a zombie bears build with VQ and big bad voodoo in act 3 inferno. I have no problem getting a 5 stack, and I've used this on mobs, elites, and bosses since act 4 Hell. I don't see why people on this forum hate on something that works so well. Zombie Bears is extremely viable. If you can get a OH with mana regen - 10 mana regen with VQ is 30 mana regen a second. I use spirit walker with honored guest and never find myself unable to cast freely.

My biggest problem with zombie bear build is that I get anihalated by ranged units that flee when you near them. Everything one shot me so I'm bound to get hit by something when there's a good 25 mobs on the screen. I have to get so close and that is a big issue. What do you do?

It should be noted that you can get offhands with both mana regen, and reduced zombie charger mana cost. That plus a mana regen helm and weapon can lead to literally infinite bears with just VQ.

***: This statement true for little to no attack speed builds. Heavy ias builds will still oom, just not nearly as fast

I use this build to farm Act 1 Inferno and have no problem getting 5 stacks solo.

I currently changed my gear around and now farm ACT 1 Inferno. I can kill the butcher in about 1-2 minutes solo.

Current Stats are: 40K HP, 10K DPS and 550 Resist all.

I'm currently working in increasing DPS while maintaining HP and Resists.

My current build is called Chicken and Bears and works great. I can take down most elite packs with it.

With Jungle Fortitude and Bad Medicine, that's 40% damage reduction from all incoming hits.

Any ideas for Act 2 or ACT 3 with this build?

If you think you can't spam it indefinitely...

1) Invest in Mana regen gear.
2) Enjoy as even a meager 7 mana/sec becomes 21 with VQ.

With a 'slow' ish 2-hander (which is the right way to use bears, unless you use procs) you need 30~46 passive mana regen (depending on mana pool) as Honored Guest Spirit Walk will top you up.

It is completely possible to spam it indefinitely. You do have to give up a fair bit for it, though.

Interesting build.

Don't you find it hard to keep VQ active with so many skills with short cooldowns (15 seconds or less)?
