I see WD more of a Controller/Offensive Supporter. We go so much CC and buffs/debuffs, use them in groups and melt faces.
Right now WD is being shoved into a few builds or build centered around vision quest and bat spam.
Yes if I want to play a caster I would play a wizard.
I want to be a summoner where the bulk of my strength lies in my minions. But from what I've read (which includes a blue post) half of your damage is from your minions, and the other half is from you.
It's like they put a half-hearted attempt for the witch doctor, half caster, half summoner, average in both areas. Poor dps compared to other classes because they have to balance it around our minions.
That's how I feel about it.
You guys can hide behind the guise of "support" if you want, but if you can't bring good damage to the table you're just bringing your group down. Witch Doctors can do just as much damage as a wizard so you shouldn't be complacent by just playing the "support" role and letting other people carry you.

I said we are no Wizzard glass cannons. We can spread locust and debuff every enemys damage by 20% and still deal damage. We can use hex for cc/heal. Voodoo for great group buff+utility from rune. Grasp for kiting. Mass confusion for as oh !@#$ button. I dont see how this is not a huge asset for a group.
