Build idea?

Posts: 104
Anyone has a goob HC witch doctor build? I lost my lvl 47 due to a server crash and this was my build :
Definitely not the greatest build but it worked pretty well. My biggest error was probably to use soul harvest instead of spirit walk. If you have any better build, please share it :)

The only weaknesses I find is
1) No spirit walk. If you get vortexed or walled in a bad spot you might die if you don't have it.
2) Explosive beast rune is basically a terrible version of dire bats

Soul harvest is actually really good, if you like exploding dogs I recommend this: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/witch-doctor#acYUdV!ZdV!aabZZY

Or if you want to try fetish summons, you can use my build (just soloed NM act 3 & 4 tonight with it) http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/witch-doctor#acXUdP!ZeV!aaYZZb

PS: if you use soul harvest, remember to switch it out for something else (gargantuan, big bad voodoo) when facing a single target boss like the butcher.

You should try grasp of the dead with poison dart

Zombie charge with poison dart is kind of pointless to me since you can only cast one direct damage spell at a time

with grasp you can aoe everything while doing dmg with darts

I use

Garg and Templar are up front and I place grasp and acid rain where there are or on the choke points, burn down with darts. Horrify and spirit walk for when I get surrounded or in trouble.

I'm using a pet build focused on freeze/stun/thorn/life regen % items: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/witch-doctor#hZYUQT!Zgd!bZYbYY with the sorceress for extra armor and chicken cc.
Not the fastest killer but very safe and fun so far (no need to kite, the pets get the aggro and I nuke at will from range, they survive quite well in nm/hell vs all bosses/champs/elites, I'm not in inferno so I can't tell how it'll be there).
