I come from the land of HC =) 60wd on inferno A2. ( No henchies, No pets )
Due to the lack of WD's in HC forum I'm posting my build here in WD section.
Ok ladies and gents.... Here it is
a bunch of buddies telling me to post this because they've seen ze powah!
Gear* MUST STACK AS!!
Weapon speed 1.6+
Amulet, Weapon, Rings any piece of Gear you can get AS on.
How much you say? 2.0 + to be viable in inferno. Ideally around 2.5
No need for Vision quest, you have tons of Mana due to the low cost of PoT-RoT/and PD-Splinters.
Most of the other talents should be self explanatory, but here's a little input.
*Poison darts and Rain of Toads - With AS stack PD should be a machine gun with almost no gap between the cast. RoT Stacks 5 times before initial cast wears off.
*Spirit walk ( Jaunt is a must! ) For getting away from Fast/frost/arcane or Horde/frost/arcane/vortex mobs **Shutter**
Although Healing Journey is also nice because you have no Heals other than your Passive regeneration; coming down to player style.
*Fetish Army-Fetish Ambush - Packs a huge initial punch and best of all this causes Aggro!
If you ever get boxed in this + Spirit Walk will get you out of any* situation Vs Anything!
Only weakness are Wallers ( no SW through walls ;_; )
* Passive glyphs*
Regen both HP and Mana Is a huge heal once you get a bigger health pool
I really don't want to throw my math numbers in your face, but let's just say SA negates some of PtV's Mana Sacrifice.
**For those who are playing HC and are scared of getting one shotted by Belial or other mobs Replace PtV for Spirit Vessel to play it safe.
Now then, Key-bindings ( huge part of the spec )
* PoT/RoT Mouse-wheel UP
*Spirit Walk should be Mouse-wheel Down
*Splinters Left-mouse BTN
*Grasp Right-mouse BTN
Potions - Middle-mouse BTN
I have a Razor mouse so... 2 extra buttons for me, Fetish Army and Bats.
Choose to bind those to whatever floats your boat.
There really isn't any casting order - You should be Kiting to a choke point(Hell to Inferno) >grasp>Rain of toads;cast this 4 times, scroll up 4 times fast>Poison darts>bats to weaken the back of the pack.
Keep RoT up on mobs and Splinters. bat's shouldn't be used under 50% mana
Rain of toad and Poison Darts will do a RIDICULOUS amount DPS
I'll probably post a video of it in the future. Feel free to try this spec It's lovely!

If i might ask...
1) What is your health
3) 2h Wep or 1h + mojo
and is this spec good for Bosses AND elite packs? Cause i am only playing normal.. yeah i know im not a hardcorian, but i am having trouble finding a spec that is good for bosses AND elite packs. I am on inferno btw
*Edit* And WTF do you do about all those mobs that just come out of nowhere? THe invisible snake things that wont appear till they are on top of you, the jumping lacuni, the archers and tongue lick dudes

Another question: How much of other stats (like Intelligence) should you sacrifice for attack speed? I'm thinking of things like those silly legendaries that are useless, but have +6% attack speed on them. In other words: Do you purely want max dps? Or is a higher attack speed worth a slightly lowered dps?
If i might ask...
28k hp squishy ;_; but In hardcore I've developed a play style that wont get me hit.
*In no way am I a slow carebear style player.*
2.4 % AS
1 hander ( is a must )
I just found a video on Youtube of a Belial kill - Take a look at how fast he rips apart the mobs :)
If this guy would use RoT he would down Belial in less then 30 seconds. I think I did it around 20-30secoonds
P.s. No idea how much dps this guy has- though it does look like he has 2.0over all AS on his character as you can see almost no gap in his Poison Dart!

Best way to attain the desired Attack speed starting up at low levels - Attack speed and damage buff so anything from 5-10 + 10% AS and up.
Rings same thing Socket/x-x Dmg/AS % + search AH for 1handers High base Attack speed with Attack speed % bonus / hands with AS %

in HC you'll realize close quarter combat as a WD is just plain stupid, I can see VQ builds fun in SC, but in HC you cant afford the risk.
I.e. Honestly I use bats to pull lol.
Aside from pulling they are thrown in at the end a rotation; RoTx4- PD>bat>PD>keep RoT up>PD>bat
I always fight at choke points > bridges >doorways, etc.. Bats will do Aoe dmg to the back of the pack while you're bottlenecking the front, by the time they get into your RoT AoE area they should be 80% and going down > by the time tjhey get to the front they should be 30-40 % and ready to get gibbed.

K 1 more question for ya, i have been just trying to stack as much int and damage as possible... i have 26k Damage with 2h, slow attack speed and only 20k health, should i invest in more vitality and drop some damage
*Edit* Just ran into Fast/plagued/vamp/desecrator lol any suggestions? i used raid of toads till i was out of mana ON them and they never went below 90

I can't stress how important Attack Speed is.
But If you're going to stick with 2hander, slow AS; Drop DPS for HP and get some resis. you can sac 1k hp for 10 all-resistance safely and get a good tradeoff.
Alright will try it out, thanks. Im currently sill 34 and on nightmare and kinda could be doing better, probe because i really only use
which is probably why lol.
Let me know how the dps is once you tried it out.
Make sure to cast grasp then > Rain of Toads x3 at least before you start poison darts.
